Re: Tyre profile

I echo everything Ginger has said BUT If your not bothered about the speedo reading high, so your actually going a bit slower & you've got standard ridehight then I think you'll be fine with the tyres you have suggested. Just don't go any bigger. As standard the 406 has a lot of wheelarch clearance ...

Re: 5175 E9 REAR SUSPENSION ARM

You are referring to servicebox, which is a main dealer / independent garage website only. You can register a fake garage :supafrisk: to open an account to veiw it BUT You need to order parts from your local Peugeot main dealer, & yes they are left & right handed. Bet it was awful to drive like that...

Re: need advoce maf sensor

Probably,
Best way is to blank from both ends,
Flat below 1500rpm's could be lot's of things, vac leak, boost leak, low fuel pressure ect,ect.
Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

Re: need advoce maf sensor

Yes, But make sure it is a genuine one & is new there's alot of crap on ebay. Your smoking & hesitation could be due to your E.G.R valve, because with that low millage it'll have been lot's of start stop's. Very bad for a diesel :roll: Blanking it off is a very good idea anyway :supafrisk: Mine's lo...

Re: Engine management light

Cliffk,

Sorry for the late reply, I don't come on here very often.
I am also in the middle of decorating our lounge :roll:

Don't know if it helps but I've got pp2k & a 2002 2.0 hdi 110 with a reasonable idea of what I'm doing.

Your very welcome to pop round for a diagnosis check :)

The Bilsteins are gas :wink: Don't think that Monroe are available for the 406 Koni sport yellow stuff are but they cost over £500.00 for my coupe :supafrisk: ps: anything new will feel great compared to 100k + shocks, don't forget worn bushings, drop links & Top mounts & sagging springs :shock:

Re: Recommended Shocks

Hi All! I really would like it to roll a bit less in the curves. Any recommendations on what kind of shocks to aim for? To be honest you won't get 'stiffer' sports dampers for these :roll: Just new one's will be a improvement & stiffer lower springs help :cheesy: I have p.i springs on mine -30mm & ...

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...
