Re: 2.2 HDi EML

In that case, just following guide with your replacement pipe - although your ball will still need replacing, or fixing in the upright position. If the car is still a bit sluggish, I would suggest you replace the MAF - don't bother unplugging it as this doesn't help on the 2.2hdi, it only seems to ...

Re: Volvo V70

Sold the car for what i paid to a relative and bought the 406 and a 2 post lift with change to spare :cheesy: That was back in 2018, last year i did go a bit mad and bought something also from the ...

Re: Hidden Connects2 bluetooth

Old thread but i see it thought it may aswell be completed. Yes the connects 2 unit can be fitted in behind the standard head unit. I wrapped it with an old rag and insulating tape to prevent rattles all fitted in ok. At the time i also removed the centre console drilled holes in behind the ash tray...

Re: 2.2 HDi EML

I had a quick look today, the ball joint for the swirl flap has snapped, and i see that a number of the vacuum pipes are cracked looking.

2.2 HDi EML

I am driving a 2.2 HDi estate - remap&defap etc, very close at this point to moving onto a 508 SW after a long time in 406's Anyhow i randomly get the EML light and a bit of a limp mode, well to be fair for a car that supposedly on the most powerful remap file for a 2.2 hdi it feels a bit sluggish. ...

Rear door handle

The passenger side rear door handle on my estate has not opened from the outside or inside for a number of months. My dad borrowed the car for some estate car duties and when I got it back I walked up to the door in question forgetting about its fault and it opened. While opened I sprayed copious am...

Re: Gear lever failed

Problem Solved; While the cables were connected to the gear linkages on the box there is a bit further back a bracket that the cables presumably push against. This popped out, i think a clip held it in place, a couple of cable ties sorted it. Was a good excuse to get the yoke back on the lift to do ...

No communication with engine ECU

I plugged PP2000 into someones 406 today as they are complaining about a lack of power (2.0 HDi 90), i know the 90s were never particularly potent but this one had no noticeable boost at all. PP2000 was unable to communicate with the engine ECU but seemed able to talk to all other modules.
