Re: N75 valve on 2.2 DW12 2.2 HDi engine

Are the vacuum pipes fitted the right way round on the solenoid to the left of the airbox? When the engine is running, the little ball and socket should be laying backwards, nearly horizontal - and when you rev the engine then it should lift up to the vertical position. If it does the opposite then ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Funnily enough, I had no bullying issues in my old estate - and if someone was trying to prove themselves I simply put them in their place ( normally behind me.... ) However, since I now drive the Coupé - it seems a target for eejits on the road, and people parking really close to me.. :evil: Is it ...

Re: Ebay Etc. Just "Run-In" 406s

Going back a few years, if you were to type in 406 on eBay to look for a second hand one - there would be pages and pages of them. Last time I looked there was about 10 for sale.... :wink: Either there are not many left, or the people that own one are hanging onto it as it's worth more to them than ...

Re: Mot headlight fail headache

Is the bulb in upside down? Or not in squarely?
Don't laugh, it's a common mistake and makes the beam go haywire....

Re: Immobiliser bypass help

I'm pretty certain that once the car is started then you can unplug the keypad ( with the engine running ) and it will bypass it. However, this doesn't answer your problem about getting it started in the first place - have you had a chat with a Peugeot dealer to see if there is a way of finding it t...

Re: 406 LX 2.0 HDI

Hi, and a belated welcome from me. Your motor looks alright to me, and as said the 406 is a lot of car for the money. That throttle clip is a right pain - it's always the first thing I check when doing a diagnostic on a 406 - I used to carry a spare one slid under the rubber bonnet stop :cheesy: As ...

Re: Rear abs oroblem

My friend had the same issue - eventually the fault was found in the main footwell connection under the drivers carpet near the pedals... I'm not saying it's definitely your issue, but it's something to bear in mind. If your mechanic can get a replacement sensor, he can simply plug it in to the conn...

Re: Low Brake fluid warning.

I agree - it's a fairly common thing, although I haven't experienced it yet.
As stated, you can remove the switch on the glove box ( it only puts the light on inside anyway ) and swap it with the handbrake switch - if it's fixed then get another switch to put in the glove box :cheesy:

Re: Ebay Etc. Just "Run-In" 406s

This was on Farcebook a while ago and there was a fair bit of interest - however I believe there were a few issues..
3k is a lot of money for the least popular Solstice Gold, I feel it's over priced.

Re: N75 valve on 2.2 DW12 2.2 HDi engine

Hi. The LQ is attached to the bottom of the airbox - the CH is bolted the engine just to the left of the airbox (unless you have a Coupé then it's under the airbox on a separate bracket) The CH is the solenoid that opens and closes the swirl flap, however the 2 bigger spouts are prone to breaking of...

Re: N75 valve on 2.2 DW12 2.2 HDi engine

Ah, I think this on is a similar number, 1628 CH, but I'll check online later. I'm not sure what this electrovalve controls, if it's the one with the blue plug, air dosers possibly, as both my 2.2hdi estates has a simplified vacuum system - only the turbo solenoid was used, the swirl flap ( which is...

Re: Pointy Indicators on modern cars

And how about car designers* change their minds about putting the world's smallest orange bulb right next to the stupidly bright and pointless DRLs so it becomes a completely pointless indicator...

Is it just me, or does that silly scrolling Aldi indicator turn anyone elses stomach...?
