MOT? Fail, naturally. No chance of anything actually being easy or straightforward in my life at the moment, so of course it's a fail.
Brake lamp out, tyre rotation incorrect, siezed rear brake pressure limiting valve and rear brakes out of balance.

Could be worse, but I now of course cannot find a T30 bit to remove the rear drum speed screws to check over the rear brakes. Naturally.

One day I will have all my tools organised and where I can find them. That day is not today.

I am seriously considering the 120hp remap for this one.  90hp is surprisingly good in what is basically a large box of air, but 120hp would make it very quick!


This would have the Siemens injection system. A total bitch to remap as opposed to the pre face-lift Bosch system... ive owned my own 2003 Blingo for 13years now and have been turned away by numerous remapping specialists who have said its either a complete bitch to do or nigh on impossible. I gave up in the end.. though I've got to say.. the more miles I've piled up on her.. the faster she has got! ☺️

I'm not convinced... I've heard of several 2003-07 2.0HDI engines in various vehicles (Bling, Picasso, Xantia, Pug 206 etc.etc.etc.) that have all been remapped to one degree or another.  I will have to speak to a couple of people on Citroen Car Club who have had it done and where they had it done.. If I'm successful I'll post it back here.

 

Also....

 

MOT pass.  That is all.

This company has been remapping the Siemens ECU's for as long as I can remember.

........ aaaaaaand it's broken.

 

Only a bit though.  Fan won't work on fresh air, but does work on recirc air, which says to me the switch is a little duff.  I was going to swap it over with the switch from the old berlingo, but it turns out that +AC models have a different fan control system.  Bleddy typical.  May have to actually splash out and buy a new one, as having no heater fan in wet/cold/miserable weather is a bit of a safety issue.
