Re: Sits too high at the back?

So I purchased some 40mm Cobra lowering springs and have fitted the rear, already it looks so much better as it’s slightly more level! I’m not looking forward to doing the front as from what I gather it’s a bit of a ball ache! Until you fit the 40mm lower front springs then back to square one :wink...

Re: Clock instrument cluster

NinoB, I have a set out of a 2.0hdi like the set Ginger posted a link to if your interested. The two issues I can think of. 1. I have no idea of the millage stored on the clocks 2. Your first picture shows a petrol set (6.5k red line), the diesel red line is around 5.2k from memory. Kind regards DDD.

:arrowu: +1 on what Dogslife said :cheesy:
Oh & welcome.

I didn't read all your post (because of how you had typed it, it started to hurt my aging eyes :wink: )

But 20 years is too long by at least 12 year's, I do hope you changed it before you used it.

Re: I can haz a new car too....!

Look's nice Kelv, I had a 740 glt 2.3 turbo many moons ago :shock: it was the thirstiest car I've ever owned :? Circa 22 mpg, I sold it after one month. & I can top trump you both on the insurance & tax (as in both cost me more :roll: ) But it worked out to within ten pounds of what it cost me to ta...

I believe there all the same, try asking at the main stealers.

Re: my pride and joy estate GLX HDi 90

Welcome Matt :D Whilst I agree with some of the comments, I come at it from a different angle If you get to know your car & like it, why not spend the money to keep it right ? Ginger for example, sold on or scrapped (I can't quite remember :cheesy: ) A lovely 2.2Hdi executive estate because it had c...

Welcome to the mad house Ian :cheesy:

Wow you leave it twenty years & then buy a 97/98 D8 phase one :shock:

You've got a good six years of newer 406's to wade through yet :wink:

Great car's, I've personally had four & still own one after eight year's, It's just the wrong one I kept :(

Re: Rear nearside tyre wearing on outside only.

+1 Look up Doggy is spot on, My advice would be new links with the new eccentric bolts & washers. I did mine when I first had it (but the photo's are long gone :roll: ) You will need a proper four wheel alignment ( that understands than the rear end is adjustable :wink: ) Doggy, it's both camber & c...

Re: Timing belt replacement

If I'm understanding you right your current belt is 3.5 years old & has covered 60000 km Which is 36000 miles so you'll be fine :) That's good average millage. I'd never do just a belt, if your paying for labour it's false economy & if doing it yourself a kit including the waterpump is under £75 ove...

Re: Timing belt replacement

Peugeot in the uk claimed 80 thousand miles or ten years whichever was sooner This was revised to 70 thousand or eight years. But to be honest I do mine at five to six max irrelevant of the millage. If your car is low millage because it spends time sitting not being used, the belt is wrapped tightly...
