Re: 2006 407 2.7 HDI Oil leak ?

Listen to jasper's advice, he knows :) Turbo Diesel engines can deposit oil in the airways to and from the intercooler, a fair bit of oil can collect in this way, the oil gets carried over from the seals in the turbo...this may be worth checking as it could be leaking out somewhere. +1 for Jasper 5...

Re: Low Brake fluid warning.

Sounds like the old faulty handbrake switch, I've not had this on mine yet.

If your desperate & wish to fault find, the glovebox switch is the same part.

Re: Crank pulley bolt problem

Eric, When it was last done, did it have a new bolt installed ? The reason I ask is I've done mine twice now each time with a new bolt from the main steelers. These bolts come with locking paste already on them, this can make them feel as though there picking up as you wind them out. I have always d...

Re: Going to stop lurking now...

Welcome in! As doggy says the 406 is a nice familiar comforting thing to flop into at the end of a hard day and it'll waft you home without any fuss. Arguably, no definitely, the best car Peugeot ever made. It's such a shame to see numbers dwindling and people giving up on them when faced with a fa...

Ouch, I've got an e-class Merc that weighs about the same as a house (it's about 2.5 tonnes or something ridiculus) and even that will run 40mpg just ambling around town, 60 on a run!
Ahh! & I though your coupe was your daily, not another toy :cheesy:

Re: What year D8 up to ?

Hmmmm. You should be safe with a year 2000 bonnet, as I think anything newer than a T reg is D9 ( some T reg could be either ) however Monaco Blue is a D9 only colour :cheesy: Didn't know that mate, re Monaco blue :roll: but I think the bonnet I've been offered is China blue So a respray is on the ...

What year D8 up to ?

I know it probably sounds like a daft question but my 02 406 needs a new bonnet :roll: It's been getting worse for a couple of years, well with the amount of work I've put into the old girl I want to replace it. So how to identify a Mk1 bonnet to a Mkll, the one I've been offered is year 2000 :roll:...

Re: OEM wheels for brembo V6

will I be able to upgrade to brembos? "upgrade" is not the correct word to use there... The soggy, squeally, expensive and difficult-to-maintain brembo brakes are by far the worst part of the v6 coupé. When I had mine I wished I'd upgraded to brakes from any other 406. mjb, Dare I say it but yours ...
