Re: Air doser Hdi 90 delete?

There is no point disabling it. It has two purposes on the HDi 90: the throttle fresh air when the EGR is open in order to increase the amount of exhaust gas being recycled, and to slam shut when you turn the engine off which makes shutdown less wobbly and prevents run-on. The second function you wa...

Re: Wet sanded my headlights

I paid a grown-up £30 to do mine. I'm told it's important to apply a good UV sealant or else they'll quickly go yellow and you'll be locked in to a never ending cycle of polishing. I've been asking around for ages and he was the first guy that didn't look at me like I'm stupid (which, it's a fair co...

Re: deadlock

You know the thing on the driver's window where there's an extra position in the switch: first position to move the window and second position to move the window all the way.

Well all four need to be like that for full shut.

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

The ECU knows that something is up because it sees more fresh air coming in through the MAF than it was expecting when it's opened the EGR. This logs a fault in my 2007 407 but doesn't summon Aunty Pollution.

It is a shame about the C5; it sounded like a really good idea.

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

The Bastard 307 From Hell did something similar -- if not used regularly then the battery would flatten. A solar panel charger thingy made no difference. Auto electrician couldn't find anything. However, independent former Citroen tech and specialist in folding hard tops had one (also RFK 2.0 180 pe...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Interesting... I was expecting somewhere near the crank pulley that runs the timing belt. The 2.2s and the 2.0s are all the same block (aren't they?) so I'd expect them to be in the same place. I believe they're the same part: 1920.EH. In any case: if it's not in plain sight then I'll need a grown-u...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Good to hear from you aww shux :oops: ...just drove it dragging a wheel, banging it up and down kerbs until it let go. Not that I'm suggesting you do this with the 407 mind. I imagine it's probably going to work out something like that. Sometimes the C6 is a little reluctant to let go but to date i...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Cutting it fine: as I arrived at Mechanic's on 12th March it left a puddle. Water this time; there are three weak points in the cooling system and it was booked in to have these parts changed and a cam belt. It's now stranded there. It's going to have to be SORNed. Just taxed and insured the 407 at ...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Just checking in... It's been a tough month living in Telford and working in Oldham, but Oldham house has now completed so I'm starting to get some time back and I've got some work to do that I can actually do. House was a bit grim to start with as it had been tenanted and left in a bit of a mess. F...

I'm still seeing all models.

Although whenever enter a part to order (to check the price) the price is coming up as ***.

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Thank you.
This was a good place to come for some sense.

Well I've made my begging phone call and the answer is no. Sounds like they're running out of money again and were glad to get rid of a bigger salary.

So it would appear that the only way is forward...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

I think all this change is too much for me. I'm back to walking round the house looking for him and crying like I was in March. I think that getting back to work and back into the routine and the silly Citroën was just a way to occupy and distract myself and ignore what happened. I think I have to c...
