Re: 90bhp and 110bhp Engines :)

90 has less to go wrong, very economical, perfectly adequate round town but can struggle to keep up on a bypass. Harder to find maps for a Siemens one too. 110 is quicker, easier to map but still economical. A slightly better all-rounder but if you find a 406 you really like and it happens to be a 9...

Re: new pp2000 owner questions plz

On mine, I installed Lexia first, as it wasn't really important but came on same CD and the language choice was the first page ( I think ) I'm sure there was the same option screen on Peugeot Planet, but can't remember for sure. Can you not press one of the ' function ' keys to change language when ...

Re: hi

I would remove the drivers side wheel arch liner to see the bottle ( behind the bumper ) and look for obvious leaks or loose pipes. Maybe someone can fill it while you are looking?
I can supply a second hand one if yours has split, as I am stripping a similar model ( car, that is... )

Re: 406 2.2 hdi same as 807's????

I think Doggy means that the Fap ( particulate filter for emission reduction ) can get blocked and sap the performance. The Ecu can be told to' ignore' the Fap and it will never be a problem again. Then the filter part would then be removed leaving a free-flowing exhaust ( apart from the cat ) to gi...

Re: Rear Calipers

Hi, there are 2 bolts, one is a 17mm ( I think ) on top of the caliper at the back, and there is a hex bolt under a rubber bung at the bottom of the caliper at the back. They might be a bit stiff at first, but they hold the caliper to the back-plate. The whole caliper will come away from the disc, b...

Re: New aaand full of questions :)

Hi mate, I have a 306 and a 406, 306 is the wife's and 406 is mine. 306 is more fun round town but the 406 is superior as a family car. Both ultra-reliable and economical. The 406 prices have dropped so a good time to buy one, aim for a later and higher spec model if you can as prices much the same....

Re: new pp2000 owner questions plz

Hi, if you are having problems installing, then look on youtube as there are translations and how-to's on there. You also need all leads plugged in ( not into the car though ) during installation too. You can convert to English again once installed. Don't forget to click 406R, as that's when you put...

Re: What exactly does Rapier mean?

Not sure if it is relevant, but my 2.2 exec VIn has VF38E4HXF in it, where as my donor car ( Rapier ) has VF38ERHZF in it.

Could the R mean Rapier?

It does have basic trim but more gadgets than basic model.

Re: Air Con Gas loss results back in

Its around £40 - £50 depending where you go. Seems pricey but they are generally thorough and do pressure checks etc before a re-gas.

Help needed, I've been a PP Plonker....

I was innocently messing around today with PP2000, just to get to grips with it, and I stumbled across the Accessories menu, looked at the radio options and thought ' how easy is it to put in a CD player ' so I went through the menu but didn't turn off my ignition as prompted. 8) Now I have no radio...
