The pic in the middle very much looks like an injector. It looks like it's damp too, whip the inlet off and check the union on the top to see if it's wet and maybe tweek it up a little, though not too much of course.

Dying Duck

Is it me (or my ISP) or does this site seem to spend a lot of time on its back with its legs in the air? While I'm here, there doesn't seem to be a way to upload pictures into this forum, everyone seems to stick them elsewhere and use the URL. Is there a favourite website to do this on who don't min...

You need the right tool to remove the injectors on the 2.1, the needle lift sensor has a wire to it so the tool needs a slot cut in it. I took mine to Pug, they took it in but 20 minutes later they called me back to tell me they didn't have the right tool... Tools... However, they did tell me where ...

Mainly just the electrics, everything else (touch wood) is OK Apart from the ECUs for the airbags and speedo I've not had any electrical gremlins, probably because they don't shovel salt everywhere at the first sign of frost (old cars here don't rust either, there's all sorts floating about, a Fiat...

It goes to 30+ here and the air con in my D8 is fantastic. Then it does have "hot climate" fans :cheesy: .

Oil change? Pah! You know it's gonna get messy so wear gloves and have a stack of newspaper and rags ready, investing in some sort of drip tray wouldn't go amiss either. Use a strap or chain wrench on the filter too, you're not very likely to get it undone with your hands (and never, never, never ha...

But the centre of the disc is always relatively cold since a) the main braking isn't done there and b) it's got the hub as a heat sink. Warped discs usually come from a high-pressure grip on a red hot disc from the caliper whilch causes that section to cool down at a different rate to the rest of t...

I hit "foreign drivers" 'cos that's all we've got here... Ok, it says Great Britain but they're pretty darn lousy and I can't imagine one lasting long on UK roads: absolutely must overtake the car in front at all costs! - blind bends, brows of hills, cars stopped at pedestrian crossings*, oncoming P...

My 406 occasionally has to double up as a builder's van, which is why I'd never go for a 407 estate - tiny boot. What were Pug thinking? Smaller than a damn glof!

Fantastic but useless? I'm sure the paint code on my D8 ends in E, which kind of falls off this thing too. I'd bet they'd be sc4ratching their heads if you asked a Pug as well.

Which is why ppl should hold their car on the handbrake not the footbrake... I'm not sure if that would make any difference, the footbrake squeezes the disk while the handbrake, if over-applied, will deform the whole thing. I think the problem is heat, that and shoddy materials - on the D9 the l/h ...

I don't blame you for going somewhere else to have the job done. I'm happy with Pug doing it here though as I trust them more than a local garage. Or should I say mistrust them less? I bottled out anyway, I'll have to drive it to get it to Peugeot but I decided that's my next journey. I cycled home ...

Words of warning: HDI 110, it's the knurled ring you turn auntyclockwise, as viewed from above, if you try to turn the top you will need a new housing as it's slotted into the bottom half and you will mangle it. Use an oil filter strap wrench, it's very tight! I did mine the first time a few weeks b...
