Re: Engine Mount

You can remove lower mount in situ without driveshaft removal but its very difficult it may be worth looking at the powerflex mounts that are made for the 306 as I read they fit the 307 so I'm guessing should fit the 406

New stat higher temp but why??

Hi all my hdi 90 has always run at around 80c for years anyway yesterday temp started jumping up and down indicating a new sensor was required, anyway i decided to change the stat and sensor but temp is now 85c but why if it was the sensor shouldn't this have happened when i got the car years ago

Re: Should i open bleed nipple whenpushing piston back on ca

To be honest ive never been bothered before but wasnt sure as some people say that it can damage the ABS unit just wondered if this is true or just people being over cautious

Should i open bleed nipple whenpushing piston back on calipe

Ive been reading lately that on some cars you should open the bleed nipple when retracting the caliper piston to avoid damage to the ABS unit is this necessary is it it advised that i do this

New aux tensioner still bouncing

Hi alll

I recently replaced crankshaft pulley idle pulley and tensioner for the aux belt and for a short while tensioner stopped bouncing but its started again could it be something else like the a/c compressor or clutch pulley on the alternator causing it.

Re: Steering column rattle

Well decided to buy a 2nd hand alternator for £20 but still have a wine though i did take of the pulley beneath the alternator and that seemed a bit rough so am thinking it may now be that but cannot believe how expensive they are, at least thats pretty easy to change
