Re: Williams waterless wash "n" wax.

I imagine it is silicone based. It will give a shine that soon wears off and attracts dust to it. I shall remain a sceptic. However I have not tried it myself. Don't think there is a real substitute to good old fashioned 'elbow grease' Handy though if you are selling a car and need a temporary quick...

2001 406 2.2HDi Exec saloon for sale...£400

Well I have run out of funds and patience to fix this car, so it has to go to a good home. It's a shame, because I know it's a simple fix, but my mechanical skills are a decimal point above zero... It's on ebay here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191568640415?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555...

Re: Flat Battery for the first time

This sounds like 'Wet footwell syndrome' to me. Have the carpet up in the drivers footwell and have a look see if you have a swimingpool in there. Carpet may feel dry on top, but it's notorious under there. Aso under there, is the main connections between the front and rear looms, and the connectors...

Re: A seasonal visit from Aunti Poll....

Ok, first off, thanks for the explanation of how to upload a pic :P After spending an age looking at the engine and feeling a bit intimidated, I found a diagram of the air system on another post. I then spent a couple of hours with colouring pens and a pencil working out what went where.... Then I w...

Re: PEUGEOT PLANNET 2000 SOFTWARE

Planet can be a pain to activate.
It will eventually, just keep entering new codes from the keygen.

I have no idea what the problem is, unless it needs a certain sequence to recognise the code.
