Re: Have Audi went mad

haha @ turbolag I got a lift in an A5 by a young man with a high voice reeking of aftershave. I thought the equipment was basic, and the interior quite 'plasticy'. Wasn't particularly comfortable, and it drunk so much fuel we had to stop for petrol. Looking at performance and economy statistics BMW ...

Plastic wing trim

This bit: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320291927538 I see loads of 406s with them missing, including mine since one of my neighbours smashed it off :evil: Now I've finally got a replacement, I see why they go missing: there's barely anything holding them on! So, any ideas for...

Re: Genuine 406 Floor Mats

I got a genuine Peugeot set of mats, and the driver's mat has two holes at the back of it. However:
  • the screws provided with the mats don't fit through the holes, and
  • there is nothing on the floor to screw the screws into anyway
However, as the mats fit perfectly, they seem to stay in place.

Re: Radio stalk

I have the original radio: its perfectly good enough for me (although the reception seems to have got a bit crap recently), so no problems with stalk compatibility (I hope). Yes, there's a massive hole. OK, well here's what I'm on right now. Compared to brim-to-brim calculations I find that the comp...

Re: 50p Engine Cover Fix Guide

I was feeling flush so I got some 'proper' ones. The new ones have a slightly different construction to the old ones. On the old ones the rubber is attached to the top of the bolt head. On the new ones the rubber covers the bold head and is moulded into a hexagonal shape. The rubber deforms as you t...

Radio stalk

Hi, My 2002 406 doesn't have a radio stalk. Should it?! (And if so then what sort.) If its relevant, I have satnav and a remote control. My last 406 (a 2007 XUD9TE) had a radio stalk, so I was a bit confused when I settled into my 2002 HDi to find there wasn't one. The dealer insisted there wasn't s...

Re: What I'd like to drive (Pugs Excluded)

No Peugeot allowed? Then a Citroen of course!

A C6 with that nice V6 HDi but I insist on a manual transmission. And I want it in red -- which they discontinued.

Air filter housing screws

Hi,

I went to change my air filter last night, but the screws on the housing have rusted. One would move, I stripped the head on one, and I left the other two well alone.

So:
  • Any ideas how to get the screws out.
  • Can I get replacement screws from somewhere?
Ta.
