Re: Engine doesn't start after revving for red line. 7000rpm

i wonder if the rev limiter kicked in and is "stuck" on so has stopped the spark? im not familiar with more "modern" cars so not sure where or what the limiter is.

sill drain holes?

Do 406s have drain holes in the sills? ive looked in the past but cant see any. ive looked where the sill joins the floor along the lip, ive looked in the arches either end but no joy.

Re: A/C in winter

I must say it does clear the windows of frost within a couple of mins running, its just the inside misting up that its not good at, even with the defrost button on and you cant hear yourself think for the fans, it only clears the bottom half of the screen and only where the mirrors are on the side w...

Re: A/C in winter

fair point welly. i do find the air in the south west a lot damper even in winter. i will have to put up with it. I remember growing up in Coalville, leicestershire and dad saying the winters used to be very "dry" now i know what he means!!

A/C in winter

Ever since ive had the 406 there is one thing that frustrates me, during the winter months, if the outside temp drops to 3 degrees or less the A/C stops and the windows start to mist up. the car has climate control and is always set to 21 degrees. Is it normal for the aircon to stop if its 3 degrees...

Re: strut top knock

all other joints are ok. with the wheel off today i levered the hub up and down and you can hear it knocking at the top of the strut near where it bolts to the arch. you cant see any movement, just feel and hear it. can you get to the bearings through the top in the engine bay or do you need the str...
