Most ever users on-line

I've just noticed the date for the most ever users on-line 19th January 2021, 1098 users :shock: Just goes to show how much the old girls are still liked, even 17 years after the last one rolled off the production line :) & even more just how much the word has spread, world wide about the invaluable...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Steve, I have personally used two replacement ebay cases for my key's. Don't worry about the quality, they are actually quite good. My first one is still going strong after 8 years & 80k. You can get (in the uk) just a replacement top half with the new rubber buttons for £2.49 posted or the whole ca...

Re: Hmm.. What to do 😏

The main difference between a 90 & a 110 is one is Bosch fueling & ecu controlled turbo (110) with the aforementioned intercooler and pipework. A 90 is Siemens fueling & mechanical boost control with no intercooler. HDi tuning can supply you two levels of re-map 1st 125bhp no supporting mods needed ...

Re: Catastrophic power steering failure

Here today as my 406's power steering is showing signs of a faulty pump and this was the first post I came across. But here to say that I managed to put an angle grinder through my Boxer main feed pipe (won't happen again!) but I got a replacement made up for £32 at my local hydraulic engineering s...

Re: Thermostats housing keep Cracking

Yeah, that's the same part I had an issue with removing when I did my head rebuild. It's buried under the intake pipes ect on the end of the head above the gearbox. My advice would be to use a genuine Peugeot one or find out who supplies Peugeot I've never had an issue with mine cracking but it's oe...

Re: Parts compatibility

Unless you get very lucky you'll probably have to fabricate some.

I was going to make some billet alloy ones for the rear of my 98 Coupe but I had to sell her before it happened :(

Re: HDI 90 engine issue

I've only ever owned one Japanese car - albeit in disguise... A 1983 Triumph Acclaim :cheesy: It was brilliant - reliable, comfortable, surprisingly well built, easy to work on ( the different size bolts were colour coded..! ) and fairly nippy for a 1.3. It was a grandad style car so I never got pu...

Yes thanks Steve,
I had a 2001 Toyota Avensis 2.0 16v pezzer,
The most reliable car I've ever owned, but S.W.M.B.O hated it, said it was a mini cab :roll:

Re: HDI 90 engine issue

That first picture with the wire, That's just the outer insulation broken through it going brittle. This problem get's worse the older the car get's & Peugeot are renowned for small gauge low quality wire & plugs :roll: I personally wouldn't waste my money on a used MAF.

Re: HDI 90 engine issue

If it's still the o.e maf then it'll be done for, These go out of trim through use. Always go for a genuine one, not a cheep eBay one as it'll be no better if not worse. You can always try unplugging your's, I can't remember if it works on the Siemens 90bhp but it works on the Bosch 110bhp. Must be ...

Re: Sits too high at the back?

It's a bit firmer obviously, but not in a bad way. It hasn't ruined it (for me anyway) Also it doesn't roll into the bends as much (which I prefer). But yes I'm very happy overall & they are good quality & have done over 50k with them fitted. Mainly due to being new & 40mm lower As the spring rate i...
