Re: Handbrake issue, failed MOT

Ivan, The only real way to tell if your cable's are seized or frozen is to remove them from the shoes & pull on the handbrake to see if they move freely. This is also a good chance to inspect / clean / adjust the handbrake assembly. As Steve say's I've seen one that had frozen in the outer cable & t...

Re: Handbrake issue, failed MOT

Very common Ginger, My estate & both Coupes had done this. Where the cable passes through the round welded metal guide on the suspension arms, When the handbrake is applied the cable goes rigid, this causes the guide to slowly chafe on the outer cable. Eventually it cuts through the plastic outer sh...

Re: Handbrake issue, failed MOT

:arrowu: Thought I already said that, in the motor trade that's what a frozen cable means :wink:

You can adjust the mechanism all you want but if the cables frozen it will not operate
on that side properly.

Re: Handbrake issue, failed MOT

Sounds like a frozen cable,
Replace the whole hand brake cable & adjust following the advice in the knowledge base.

Re: PP2000 or MPPS for remap HDI tuning

The Siemens can only be mapped by sending your ecu to hdi tuning or you can buy a
ecu direct from them that's unlocked.

Re: Reliability

I believe mine was finished off by the extra stress of towing,

All head gaskets will fail at some point.

Some cars are more prone than others but in the trade the Peugeot 2.0 hdi has quite a reputation
Despite what Peter thinks.

Re: Problems when engine warm

Whilst I agree with barbaren, My head gasket was gone, I had no white smoke from the exhaust & my header tank was blowing out coolant when warm, it also had a wobble on idle. If the head is cracked it should pressurise the cooling system, the best thing to do is have a sniffer test done. When the wh...

I have had zero interest at £895 with all new tyres ect ect To be honest I've spent more in the last year than I'm asking. I might just burn it, rather than give some tigh...

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

Unfortunately Steve the coupe market in the UK is crap,
I know that car it belongs to a forum member, it's even better in the flesh.
But everyone in the UK want's to pay peanuts.
I know I sold my two in August.
The other problem is it's a 2.0ltr not a V6.

Re: Head gasket repair

It's never worked for me & I have stupidly forked out for it twice :roll:
It can't fix a combustion leak between cylinders which is what happens most of the time.

Spend your tenner & then curse the removeal of the stuff when you have to rebuild it properly,.

See my post's on the subject.
