Re: and today i have mostly been...

:( very sorry Steve, ain't it crap when sxxt like that happens.
We buried our last cat just a year ago, not going to try & replace them.

Can't go through that again for a while after 20 years I'd become quite attached.

Re: Engine elastic mounting bracket effects

12 is straight forward to replace, you have to remove this in it's mount to do 32 32 can be done on the car but it's easier to do off. Have a look through my post's & you'll find some pictures of it being changed in situ. Go to engine, clutch & gearbox section page 5 under lower engine mount / steady.

Re: Engine elastic mounting bracket effects

No 32 fails the most commonly,
No 7 then starts to fail.
No's 21 & 23 collapse cursing more serious problems
No 23 the gearbox support fails quite often too.

But we are talking 125k + & fifteen years +

But your subframe bushes will be past there best by now :roll:

I did say earlier on in this post that the reg's changed a few years back, you can have no outer sills

Re: Just bought another 406 estate!

Peter Told you before that the handbrake can be good if properly adjusted & setup :wink: Congratulations on the purchase, looks to be a great buy & you stole it at £250.00 :supafrisk: With regards to the pr...

Re: Coolant level sensor replacement

You just turn it anti-clockwise by 90° & lift it out,
First put some small bore rubber tubing in the header tank & siphon 500mls off (windscreen washer pipe is ideal)

Re: help me plz PCV?

What normally happens is, If you have a boost leak of any description you have a loss of pressure on the turbo oil seals allowing oil to seep past This is then blown though the inlet side of the engine. Don't worry to much as a little will do no harm, just makes a mess as the years & miles roll by :...
