Re: New member in south wales

Hi & welcome aboard. 8)

I've run two 2.2 HDi's for almost 10 years now between them and dread the day when I'll have to put up with something else.
As GM says, between us we will have come across most snags and found ways round them, feel free to pick our brains.

Re: Cold Starting Problems

From personal experience if you want to prove the problem is due to a dodgy sensor without draining the system, get a new one and plug it into the connector without actually fitting it into the thermostat housing. Obviously this won't work properly as the coolant warms up, but it will prove or dispr...

Was a good excuse to get the yoke back on the lift to do the air doser bypass and other such 2.2 necessities.

Roof rail problem

The GTX has an infuriating rattle from the passenger side roof rail, looks like a spacer/bush is missing between the front support and the first section of rail proper. Anybody swapped one? Will the headlining ever go back properly - or should we try bodging it by filling the gap with epoxy? It's ne...

Re: Gear lever failed

I changed one on a 307 years ago. It had a similar problem, bought a lever + cables assembly from an internet scrappy. It was a proper PITA to swap the gearlever end, but the gearbox was simple after taking out the battery/box. There was a huge grommet thingy carrying all 3 cables through the bulkhe...

Re: Without a 406 for too long...

Nice to hear from you again.
I've still got mine - it'll be 6 years in October assuming it hangs together.
It'll be a tough act to follow.

Re: Non-406 1.6 TU series engine problem

Well done with the Twingo John.
'Our' 307 is going well, original engine had a shredded cambelt in the end.

Fingers crossed for the HPi, be a shame to lose such a striking example.
Have you considered turning it into an 'ordinary' 2.0 petrol?

Re: Wiring in a tow bar

To keep it legal you need a light or audible sounder to confirm the trailer indicators are working. Easiest route is am aftermarket buzzer like this, (just the first one I found at random) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal-Towbar-Towing-Electric-Audible-Buzzer-Warning-Relay-For-Indicators-/120826...

Re: New Member

Hi & Welcome aboard. 8)

As GM says, it's getting a bit quiet, but still lots of good advice (& some of mine) to be had for the asking.

Pull up a chair.
