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

Me too, specially as the car will be SORNED until July, plenty of time to set.

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?

Mighty impressive.

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...

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.

Re: ABS Gremlin

Thanks Kelv, I'll check that out.

A couple of other observations - it doesn't have ESP, cruise & stoplights work, so I guess the pedal switches are in the clear.

ABS Gremlin

'Our' 2.2 HDi GTX has an intermittent ABS fault which can pop up every few seconds, or stay on for ages depending on the mood it's in. It somehow sneaked through the last MOT like this, but seems unlikely to fair as well next time, (October). I've had PP2k hooked up to it and it shows no faults, eve...

Re: immobiliser/engine cut out switch

When it doesn't start, what's happening - does the starter spin it over and the engine fail to fire, or does the starter not operate?

XUDT's normally only have the engine driven injection pump to draw fuel from the tank, (No lift pump/electrically driven pump).

Re: Remote locking ceased

I think it was Doggy (apologies if it wasn't) had some problems hooking up PP to a car, turned out to be a blown fuse. I think PP is your best bet anyway, Loosing central locking after a battery misdemeanour is common. Correct young man! Trouble is the OBD port fuse no./location varies from car to ...
