Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

You're really not warming to the Shitroen are you? this surprises me a lot for some reason. I have to say though with our C4 the ownership experience is not especially 'warm' particularly the daft gearbox and the steering wheel buttons that do many bizarre things, and that's before I mention program...

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

I forgot to mention removing the engine/bulkhead 'blanket' which is held in by about 7 plastic studs. The air filter behind the engine is a truly awful idea on the 1.6 HDi, oh and, like last time, I lost an Allen Key somewhere behind the engine :oops: that's probably lying on the M1 now :? Thanks fo...

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

Decided to tackle the infamous DV6 Fuel Filter replacement, bejesus what a faff! All of the flimsy snap-me intake piping out, part of the windscreen scuttle panel, the main Battery....and finally you're greeted by a black plastic 'box' with 2 x Bayonet-type connectors, a drain tube and a couple of s...

Re: old topic, 406 replacement ?

anybody had one of these ? the pug 508, looks , full of kit , complicated ! french electrics !! :frown: I would much rather have a 508 over any Ford! The 508 will be a proper Peugeot and not full of borrowed/cheapened Ford bits. It's a shame French cars still seem to have this "electrics" stigma, m...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I eat tomatoes with something because I know they're good for you but yes the shite we get here in the UK is enough to put you off them. It's only really when you travel to Spain or similar that you get to flavour the real tomatoes :mrgreen: Best I can do here is attempt to buy the 'exclusive' range...

Re: Turbo on 2.0 HDI 406

The way I understood remaps on dizzlers was that a lot of the power increase comes from extra fuel injected and then a little more boostage.

Mearly upping the boost on its own won't work without the extra fuel to match it.

Excellent! 8) no I can't remember that little story, that's great though how your relationship developed in that way - I think they're the best ones and born out of friendship.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Wow, that's some story, I didn't know some of that, how weird though if you think back if you had have stayed with BT etc... I've had opportunities come and go and I sometimes kick myself for not taking the plunge, thing is I settled down with Mrs_Welly when I was 22 then we had a baby at 24 so I ki...

The 'conker tree' is my rescue tree, lives in a half-barrel which used to look way over-sized for the tree but is now so big and heavy I'd need some equipment to lift it :oops: I think all Horse Chezzers suffer from 'leaf minor' disease now, the leaves appear in May/June and look absolutely perfect ...

The conspicuous area is where them there bushes were growing (over the height of that brick wall and encroaching on the road by a couple of feet :oops: ). The grass was sown by me and this is how it looks after 2 weeks of watering every night and a very quick mow yesterday - treated the Mountfield t...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

With the absence of much else to do I have recently been concentrating on tidying/simplifying the front and rear Gardens. I removed 5 x large bushes which were planted at the front 18 years ago and had become unruly brutes. I hadn't realised how much of a 'view' they had blocked for my neighbour rev...
