New 406 owner, need some help with rattling.

Post by Ivan495 »

Hello everyone!

I bought Peugeot 406 2.0 HDi 80kW 2002. Few months ago and I love it.
But there are few things that bother me.

1. Maybe a stupid question, but how can I adjust arm rest on passanger side? It's a little too high and I want to make it lower.

2. Rattling noise arghhh.
At about 1800-2200, strange, like plastic rattling noise starts. And if I can hear it right, it's in area of interior lights. When I'm driving and press the plastic, I don't hear it.
It really makes me crazy. What to do?

Hello Ivan and welcome aboard. 8)

The armrests are not adjustable on the 406, (except by tilt the seat backrest). You may have a faulty one.

Rattles are difficult to isolate - have you tried removing the cover around the interior light to see if it makes a difference?
