Re: Possible ABS Fault?

If the A.B.S light does not come on with the ignition, that's a mot fail.

I would suggest someone has been tampering,
Because the A.B.S light staying on is a well known problem for 406's :roll:

Time to start investigating :?

Re: squeaky creaky rear suspension

I can honestly say, I don't know :(

I tried various types of spray lube, nothing worked :frown:

The good news is it's past two mot's with me & passed both, with just a snigger at the squeaking :oops:

Could be that it's dry, mine doesn't get driven in the wet if I can help it.

Re: squeaky creaky rear suspension

My coupe does the same :frown:

It's all the rear rubber bushes in the suspension arm's.

I have tried lubrication to no avail, but a full suspension overhaul is in the planning.

Re: Wiring in a tow bar

Just checked through my old posts,
It's terminal 4 on the near side, pop a 20amp fuse into holder 15

As I said mine was removed from another car which it had been fitted to by the after market company Towsure.

Re: Help, trying to remove head 2.0 hdi

Re: Remote locking ceased

Corrupted electrics, due to lack of power / standing :(
That's the very reason I decided to fit a new battery to my coupe with a battery conditioner connected :?

Worked for me, good luck with yours, you could try the bsi reset :wink:

Re: £450 2004 Estate S hdi 90. 90k miles. Mot Dec.

Why bother, 168k is nothing for one of these. Lot's of them have done north of 300k with no issues
At 90k it'll soon need all the same parts replacing that yours will probably have already had.

ie: cambelt / waterpump, aux belt / tensioner / crank shaft pulley, & at 168k I'm guessing the clutch.
