Re: Retrofitting cruise control 2003 Peugeot 406

Thankyou 8) It's hard to believe that was more than 12 years ago now :shock: You're hoping there are 2, 1 is standard (brake lights, ecu), the other is either there or it isn't - mine wasn't (I thought it might be still hiding somewhere until I found empty positions in the ecu connector) I had to pu...

Re: Retrofitting cruise control 2003 Peugeot 406

It's mux steering column switches https://www.406oc.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17391

Obviously my D9 had com2000 (it's a RPO9001, mid 2001-ish onwards thing) but it had no wiring for the additional brake switch.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I could've changed the cartridge but as far as I remember they don't cost much less than a new tap but it was the chewed up square section seals around the spout that, er, sealed its fate. Lordy! That sounds a right nightmare :shock: You do hear tales of ceilings coming down but as our floors and ce...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Crapping in a bag does sound attractive :shock: I can't say I blame them, it always looked a horrible way to earn a living, not dirty, not strenuous, just no life as such. I have a feeling they checked the date codes on my tyres in the last safety test. They also checked the car against previous pho...

He's the lorriest :cheesy: My bro's been sending me updates and pictures, it's bizarre! He was up at 4 the other morning because one of his neighbours said he saw a service station (are they still called that?) at silly o'clock in the morning that a) was open and b) had no cars waiting. He was right...

Please define catpacity, is that when you can't take a step without treading on a tail or when the doors require putting a shoulder against them to close them? :mrgreen: Why thank you kind sir!

Another month wooshes past.... :shock: We didn't get on too well with Mina's leg protectors, she seemed quite good at loosing them (one is still missing). Fitting them wasn't the problem: https://i.imgur.com/L6zsXtI.jpg Upside-down on my lap seems to work fine, especially as I discovered she loves W...

Re: Sits too high at the back?

It's do-able with the right tools but still a bit of a risk, might be better to find a local garage wiht a proper spring compressor jig thing and take your struts there.

Re: handbrake shoes

A rogue car? Shocked that they're different, are the simple drum brakes? You could try scuffing up the inside of the drum before the mot, I used to do this on mine and they worked for long enough to get through the safety test. You could find a place to reline the old shoes, hopefully they're not al...

Re: Floppy gear lever, not engage to reverse

Gearbox should be a BE. https://www.406oc.co.uk/download/file.php?mode=view&id=4018 From here Plenty of things to wear out/break. It's probably worth getting your brother to work the gear stick and see if you can spot something amiss under the bonnet. Think you might have to remove the air filter bo...

Re: Retrofitting cruise control 2003 Peugeot 406

I wouldn't be entirely surprised if there was no position for the switch, or the wiring (mine didn't have it). I suspect a position could be fabricobbled (sadly you can't use a relay as they have to work one slightly before the other), wiring could be done (I dun it) but I'd have thought the biggest...

Re: Retrofitting cruise control 2003 Peugeot 406

That's weird, usually there is neither wiring nor options in PP2K, it's been looked into many times and deemed impossible. Maybe PSA relented towards the end of production :?

Re: Modify air intake of my 406 to be less vulnerable to floods

I don't think the warmer air will make a noticable fdifference, especially in the winter... On my HDi I took the pipe off from the bottom of the air box to the inside of the iner wing. It's a shame the Volvo S80 air intake pics are gone, I don't remember seeing them either. Looking at them on ebay t...
