Re: End of an era

End of an era indeed Eric. The Dogmobile2 was and probably always will be the only 406 that put a smile on my face as soon as I drove it, it's low down torque and the 6 speed box made for very entertaining driving. All good things must come to an end, truthfully I don't know of another car that will...

Re: More Gremlins

Well done Cliff :cheesy:
This would have probably been the reason for most of your issues - just need to find the leak now.
Sunroof drain clearing should be done routinely, unless like me you just cut the bottom end bits off.!

Re: More Gremlins

If you can get over 6" of matching wire then you can bridge the connector while it's still connected ( by going over the top wire by wire ) using the same colour/number wires - sounds like it might work.?

Re: More Gremlins

That is definitely the culprit, and should also sort your ABS out ( this connector carries signals from back of the car to the ECU etc )
Take many pictures, and don't rush it - my friend David did his soldering and has had no problems since.
Best of luck.

Re: Fuel choice for your next car?

I see many cars, mostly Clios to be fair, that have writing on the back that says 'Powered by Fairy Dust'... Does anyone know where I can get this stuff, as it isn't available at my local fuel station.? Talking of emissions, my neighbour has a newish FIAT convertible thing which is fast* approaching...

Re: 2000 406 Estate 2.0 Hdi 110 exec - Flat spot/intermittent turbo lag

I agree, the MAF sensor is the usual culprit, however I suspect a sticking EGR valve may also have a similar effect. This can be temporarily disabled to eliminate it as faulty. I would try injector cleaner and super diesel for a few tank fulls too - given the mileage, just to see if it feels any dif...

Re: Just bought another 406 estate!

I'm pretty sure the LX doesn't have the power connector required for the electric seats but the other connectors are there.. ( I tried to fit GLX seats in an LX a few years back but no power connector to be found, despite tracing the other wires back ) although knowing Peugeot it seems a bit hit and...

Re: Just bought another 406 estate!

That looks an absolute steal - well done Peter :cheesy: I think it is indeed Moonstone, and your bonnet edge looks excellent..! I'm not keen on the grey interior trim on the later models, I always replace it with the nice Black Ash variety. Good luck with this one. Edit: I wish I had the amount of o...

Re: Just bought another 406 estate!

Well done Peter, what better car is there to replace a 406 with..?
A 406 of course :cheesy:
Can I hedge a bet on it being a silver 110?

Re: Fuse box diagram

+2 for wet footwell syndrome - it might feel dry on top but a reservoir underneath.... Just to add, if yours is a saloon model then it's possible you have a leaky rear light instead, which is getting the CD changer connection wet ( I think it's a blue plug tucked down the left side boot cubby hole.....
