Those locking washers are cool, and so simple. Interesting stuff all this.

Excellent! I tend to favour swimming shorts if I'm near a beach however the last time I used them the integral 'safety netting' appeared to be perished. Must get some new ones.

You say that about driving abroad but in my experience of driving in Spain/Germany (and Portugal once) I've never seen the stupid and selfish driving you get here in the UK. On the whole it seems to work quite well in yewrope and everyone gets where they need to without much fuss.

Not driven in Paris yet though :lol:

My 'today' news is that the outer CV boot has sh*t itself on the Volvo and spaffed all its grease everywhere. No problem I thought I'll ring the Volvo gen-you-win parts place I use with my friendly* forum* discount (25%) and order a new boot.

£88.00 later it's arriving tomorrow :( well actually you have to buy both inner + outer boots now with the proper metal clips and grease.

General advice = CV boot >Genuine only
Aftermarket boot > not good.

Been having a fun* week with the 807.....
It had a short MOT, no worries given the purchase price. Needed rear discs 'n' pads and the lower wishbone ball joints. Again no worries, had a quick look while it was on the MOT ramp nothing overly difficult or expensive.
Got it home and then the fun* commenced.....
Peugeot in their infinite wisdom* have decided to make the ball joints part of the wishbone so you have to replace the lot and they're not cheap (unlike ball joints).
Ordered a new set and went to fit the first one. Wrestled the old one out and the new one in on the L/H side only to find the front bolts were like a dogs d*ck in a bucket and the ball joint stud couldn't be persuaded into the hub.
Wrestle the new one out again, whip out the verniers and measure new vs old. New one had the front bolts up sized from M12 to M14 and the ball joint stud had gone from 16mm to 19mm. Double checked the part and yup fits 2006 807 2.2hdi (more on this later). An upgrade at some point? damn gotta make it fit then. Cue several hours of filing, drilling and reaming (not the fun kind) while laid flat on my back. 2 new M14 bolts for the front attachment points and more wrestling later in and done Phew!!!! And then I remembered I still had to do the other side, that went a bit quicker but I did manage to set a new PB by shearing off a seized M12 grade 10.9 bolt while laid flat on my back with nothing to brace against :oops: . As a result of all the hub wrestling I lost an un-quantifiable amount of gearbox oil so had to do a gearbox oil change.

The rear brakes were a non event in comparison.

While I was engaging in the fun* of the wishbones I decided to take the opportunity to get the ECU away for it's re-map, received it back and refitted it. Went to take it for it's MOT retest this morning and cranking but no start, unable to get my diag tools to communicate with it :evil: . Returned ECU to the re-mapper to take a look at it.

On the wishbone front it seems 2006 was a change-over point for some stuff, maybe coinciding with the introduction of the new Expert/Boxer vans? According to some sources the wishbone has never changed and others they changed from 06-07 with the 170bhp 2.2hdi model.

My daughter had an 03-plate 807 2.2 HDi, (I have the wishbone tee-shirt too). :roll:
To cut a very long story short, I lost the fight with all the gremlins that beast could summon when feeling cantankerous.....
I fixed the dodgy airbags, then the ABS, then the self leveling witchcraft for the xenons....
Then the alternator, battery connections, EML and Aunty Pollution rite of passage...
Then the airbags and ABS again....
Then the fuel leaks, intermittent sidelights, interior mood lighting, (worked when it felt like it).
Then both front & rear wipers...
Then the airbags and ABS again....
Plus the effects of her clouting the scenery and so on. Eventually, she decided to bin it. We flogged it quick.

I sincerely hope yours works out OK. It seemed a decent package, if it behaved itself.

After a few near-misses on the road today I thought it was about time I checked the dash cam was still working after I changed the battery about a month back. I also had a play with movie maker and uploaded it for your "entertainment" :P

Decent video quality there.

My experience of metric roundabouts has convinced me that johnny foreigner just isn't on the same wavelength, (even in France or Germany).
The recognised technique seems to be just go round the outside and keep turning left until you reach your exit.
Doesn't seem to faze them even if you're lost and need to do an extra lap.
Try to do it 'properly' and it confuses the hell out of them.

You'r driving on the wrong side of the road, that's the problem. :wink: When we used to go to Holland in the '70s traffic was permitted to drive straight out of a side road if he was on your right, quite a number did to claim on your insurance, I think they have changed it now.

What camera is it, and how is it powered?

Roundabouts

Vehicles on a roundabout ( sens giratoire or rond-point) usually have priority and not those entering it, who are faced with a ‘Give Way’ sign (‘ Cédez le passage’ or ‘ Vous n’avez pas la priorité’). While it used to be that drivers on the roundabout at times had to give way to vehicles entering the roundabout, this has slowly changed, and almost all roundabouts give priority to the vehicles on the roundabout. British drivers should note that traffic flows anti-clockwise round round­abouts and not clockwise.

Mini 0801 (about 5 models old now), powered by a voltage dropper stuffed down the back of the dash which is plugged into the seat heater feed (which it aint got).

There are indeed give way signs at the entrances to that roundabout. Come to think of it, there is a roundabout in Zagreb with "give way" signs actually on the roundabout, plus dotted lines too, but it's the only one like that I've "enjoyed" here.
