Re: Speaker upgrade

I'm pretty sure* the fronts are 6" and the rears are 4" on the estate. One option is to find the JBL system from an executive - which I did to find it sounded no different - or look on Amazon for some Pioneer 3 way coaxial which I bought for my van, I'm quite happy with the price and sound but I'm n...

Re: Another MOT shake up

My last smoke reading was 0.01 - which I think is good :cheesy:
2.2hdi with no FAP, or EGR, mapped to 175bhp, 30 - 70mph was something rediculous like 4 seconds.
Best overtaking car I've owned 8)

Re: 03 estate broken roof rail

I don't have one, sorry.
Pop to the local scrappy and have a look, but I think you can get to the bolts without removing the headlining but you risk creasing it as you bend it down to see the bolts..
Best try it on a scrap one first :cheesy:

Re: New member

A replacement will need coding - some sellers can code the stereo for you before posting it off, if you give them the vin number - or a local member or main dealer can code it after its fitted if it's convenient. Just to add, you could fit a Connects2 or Yatour instead - it's an adapter that the ste...

Re: advice on caliper overhaul kits needed

That's a good price.
Truthfully I fitted the new ones, then got the old ones sliding thanks to a hammer and a vice, then lubed them up and sold them on 8)

Re: New member

Hi Wag, welcome to the club 8) The 406 is a great car (but I guess you know that already) and is great value in the second hand market - some are really cheap as the list of issues is long but not really anything some time, effort, patience and fresh enthusiasm can deal with. The CD player can be te...

Re: Another MOT shake up

Just to help you, I've emailed the DVSA and the Department of Very Lost Applications with your Reg No. and VIN just to check what is required for MOT. I also said that the standard DPF had been removed, I hope this helps. Thanks Welly, I'll be sure* to pass on that information* to the new owner.......

Re: Another MOT shake up

I heard ages ago it was for cars produced after 2008 but I guess it's up to the MOT inspectors interpretation.. Later models need the DPF removed and cut open to defap them, and the weld seam is a giveaway - not so for the 406 :cheesy: As aside, both my defapped 406s flew through the smoke test with...

Re: Radio Player Problem - Peugeot 406 HDI

You should be fine with a 2002 car, I must admit I've never seen a Phillips radio in a late 406.... It is possible to send your Clarion radio to someone with a 406 and PP2000 so they can program it for you - takes 5 minutes - and then it can be posted back to you already coded so you can fit it stra...

Re: Radio Player Problem - Peugeot 406 HDI

Yes, I'm pretty certain it will - however it's worth talking to the dealer first for confirmation. Hopefully it won't cost an arm and a leg - it may be cheaper to drive to a fellow member and get it done for free, or maybe beer tokens. Edit; Yours is an Hdi so I guess it's made after 1999? You had a...

Re: Radio Player Problem - Peugeot 406 HDI

The low volume is because it isn't coded, it should be normal volume with no beeping when it is all matched together.
A Peugeot dealer or a member with PP2000 can do this for you.

Re: Buzzing noise

Is it definitely the drivers side? There is a recirculation motor that sits behind the dash but nearer the glovebox side - this has been known to make a racket when its opening the fresh air flap, some of them have ruined cogs where the flap has been jammed for years and its stripped the teeth off.....
