I have issues with my 406 :|
When I try to start it, it will just turn around, but not actually fire up the engine. Will this be a starter fault? Or does the tricks in this thread only apply when you get the "click" sound only from the starter?

I can sit there trying to start my car for 10 minutes... when it SUDDENLY just fires up and runs perfectly fine. It's also easier to get it started once I've driven the car for a bit and the engine is warm.
Hard to start in the mornings, when one would need to RUSH to work :P

How old is the Battery?
if its a few years old, have a drop test done on it, Might just be the battery not packing enough volts if its an oldish one,

Can I just jump on the end of this thread??

My 2.2 has been slow to start for a few weeks - I just put it down to cold weather draining the battery - but when car didn't start on Sunday, I tried to jump start it. Turns out the battery is full of charge but starter just clicking. Nothing on pp2000 ( as a precaution ) so I think I need a new starter.
I don't supposed anyone knows if the starter from a 110 hdi will fit the 2.2? I don't have access to servicebox.

Also, when I checked under mine to 'persuade' the starter to engage - it appeared that I can see the teeth on the flywheel, and there is lots of oil around the starter - Is there supposed to be a cover on there as this could be why starter has failed.?

Car doesn't use or leak oil, so no idea where this grime comes from.....

Yep, there's a plate - 2107F6, it's the same for ML5T & C gearboxes and it's about 10 and a half quid from Pug (in case the breakers want to sell you the whole 'box :roll: ) Have a diagram http://peugeot406coupe.nl/catalogus/D9G/2/22D15A.HTM

Starter motors - this'll be fun... Oh my gawd there's loads :frown: Hold on a mo', looks like the only difference is the class, and it lists class 4 for all DWs, saloon and estate (and class 5 for a coupé). All different makes but all with the same part number- looks like a 2.0 HDi starter will indeed fit on your 2.2 :cheesy:
