Re: Wanted..406 Estate seats

Hi Geoff - keep the electric seat switch from your drivers cloth seat, and use this to bypass your memory ECU. Its a straight fit but you just need to reverse the polarity - as when you move the seat button forwards, it will go backwards. Did you get all the lower black dash stuff too, including th...

Re: Front Fog Replacement

Hi Geoff, glad my advice from over 2 years ago was useful. I no longer have a 406, as I now have a T4 as a family vehicle - not a patch on the 406 but it's more suitable for our needs. If your fogs are not damaged, you can clean the inside of the glass out and sell them on - may get a bit of money ...

Re: Front Fog Replacement

Yes, it is a pig. When I did mine to clean the insides out, I kinda sat upright with both legs under the car, while reaching under/behind with the right hand on a decent length screwdriver with a torx bit, and the left hand 'fingering' for the bolt. It is possible, it took about 30 mins to do one f...

Yes but they are very few and far between with most being in poor condition. Looks like I'll have to play the waiting game. :frown:

Would 407 seats fit a 406?...

I'm looking for a set of leather seats for my 406 but there doesn't seem to be many around. I wondered if the 407 seats would fit or could be modded,as they seem to be more available. For example might the leather and cushioning be fitted onto my seat frames? Best regards, Geoff.

Re: Headlight upgrade....

Thanks for all the info lads, especially the link from doggy. Methinks I'll be going for the Osrams. My headlight units are clear with good reflectors, I suspect that in my cars past that someone has changed the drivers side unit and not set it up correctly as the motor adjustment works fine. Regard...

I already know that I need the headlights setting correctly as the drivers side headlight seems set very low. I would however first like to upgrade the headlight bulbs and would apprec...
