Re: and today i have mostly been...

Brilliant. I haz an Aldi drill/driver that was really handy until it lost virtually all drive to the chuck and I can't be arsed trying to take it back. After months of indecision, I impulsively bought a rubbish replacement in Asda thinking I'd then chuck t'other one out. Haven't got round to it yet ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Hope you're over the worst Steve. Wish I'd learned to do half the things you do when I had the chance, but being an idle sod of an apprentice meant I only really learned electrical stuff, despite British Steel spending half a year trying to teach me. Knowing everything, (like many 16/17 year-olds), ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Nice job on the boiler room, (puts my temporary [1993] efforts thoroughly to shame). :oops: I once 'lost' one of the cats I got landed with when my mate/landlord buggered off to college in Southampton leaving me to find homes for them. Next door neighbour discovered it about 2 weeks later in an old ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I've been reacquainting myself with the meteorological and political mayhem that is October in the UK having arrived back from our franco-spanish jaunt on Monday evening. In fairness today is nice and sunny but it was seriously wet late Monday and yesterday. Got drenched unloading car from trailer a...

Yes, that stretch of the A43 doesn't want for roundabouts, does it? ....My faith in friendly motorists restored, and they drive Citroen's :D Guess I'll have to work on the friendliness. :oops: The C5, after some new front tyres and wheel alignment is much nicer to drive and I haven't stalled it for ...

Re: Air filter question - 406 hdi 90 2003 plate

HI & welcome aboard Phillipe. 8)

I think both versions of air filter element are common, I would not worry about it as either style will prevent unwanted debris being digested by the engine.

Re: Autumn 2019 meet up?

I would be up for any of them, depending on timing - we're off on a little road trip to Spain 12th September, returning 1st October. 8)
Any w/end after that works for me - if people prefer earlier I'll understand/hope to catch you next time.

Re: A possible Dogmobile #4?

The dpf issues are easily and cheaply sorted and the mileage is reasonable. For me it's too far away, timings all wrong - we're camped near Newquay at the moment and a GLX with a dented door would be a bit of a let down after the execs.
Still like the look of a tidy 406 though.

Re: New car suggestions

Yes, they do have a nice ride and give an initial impression of utter smoothness. Ride is a bit firmer than the 406, but very well damped -they were marketed as a german car built in france in an attempt to lure the mainstream buyers. My trip computer is a compulsive liar reporting anything up to 10...

32 degreees & 80% humidity? You can keep my share of that! Is it still hot a night - how do you sleep? The menagerie all look fine and dare I say it settled?

Re: 406 scanning codes

Sorry, I didn't realise you had carried out the actuation test. Wiring diagram for the RFN engine shows a "pulsair pump" with only 2 connections, (which must be OK if you can hear it run). It does have an "induction air pressure sensor", possibly this is how it monitors the pump? Might be worth chec...

Re: 406 scanning codes

It could just be the fuse for the air pump.
The ecu must "think" the pump is not working - it probably will not measure the pressure or flow, it is more likely to monitor the voltage

Re: Ebay Etc. Just "Run-In" 406s

It's maybe just be the way the light is reflecting off it in the first pic, but as Kelv say's it's a very popular colour so another bonnet should be possible. I'd have another 406 in a heartbeat if I thought there was any prospect of a tidy 2.2 exec with a few years in front of it. Anyways, how abou...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Reflecting on how quiet things have got hereabouts. Collected my new trailer today & stashed it in the campervan's storage spot for now. (Overpriced few square yards of derelict WW2 airfield c/w fences & cctv - someone had the luck or foresight to snap up). https://i.imgur.com/Eb0Qd8G.jpg https://i....
