Re: My lion hdi 110 Estate =)

I used to have to go to Marinha Grande for tool trials when I worked in plastics, that area's not so touristy and as a result very very nice. People are so friendly!

Re: heater bits missing

Have plugged replacement motor (with resistor) at the local scrappie and fan runs the same: on maximum speed only!
Had electrician check wiring and all is there, what else am I missing?
Its not an intermittent problem, so it shouldn't be connection around steering wheel. :roll:

Re: new member here

Noticed today, regarding the digital display, that it only has enough display space in the centre where temperature actually shows.

wonder if it may be replaced and if the trip computer may be wired or is actually prewired in there? :roll:

any help?

heater and other problems

Does anyone have pictures of the heater fan resistor together with wiring/ fan motor, etc? Bought a 1999 D8.5 2.0hdi and someone made a right mess of the wiring for the heater and I think said resistor may actually be missing. Fan only works on maximum speed and motor has no faults but wiring is a r...

Re: new member here

Anyone know what else should be "displayed" in the little display above the heater knobs (see pic above)?
It is showing scorching temperature at the moment (broken sensor I imagine), but since it has multiple wiring connected behind, i think it should have other purposes?!

É um motor muito bom. Meu D8 era que a cor e ainda é minha cor favorita para o 406.

That makes very little sense in my language. I have no need for google.

Re: new member here

Welcome in matey, D8.5 is a cross over between the D8 or Mk1 and the D9 or Mk2 Depending on what was in the parts bin cars came off the lines with Mk 1 bodies and Mk 2 internals and vice versa and probably lots of combinations in the middle. Drop links are an easy diy job especially if you have acc...
