I fear my wonderful Peugeot 405 2.0 Auto may soon need to be put out to grass - the auto box is starting to complain.

I'd be super grateful if any of you chaps ever see a 405 2.0 automatic advertised in your local area/rags - please please PLEASE let me know. This is the only car I've ever had which I literally cannot fault, it's just bloody wonderful and I don't want something newer with poxy computers everywhere, or 16 valve engines totally unsuited to automatic gearboxes.

I'm after a 1992-1996 series 2 saloon, the lower mileage the better.

Thanks!

Found this - must be a petrol, judging by the rev counter. Bit of an incompetent seller.http://cgi.ebay.co.u... ... 0008006214

I've seen this, and presumed like you it was a petrol (quite apart from the fact Peugeot never made a 405 diesel auto.)I had a good bit of banter with the seller, assuring him what he had was a petrol and not to put diesel in it etc, etc. Turns out the car was converted to diesel by its previous owner, so he did know what he was talking about. Looks quite a professional job too, and an extremely rare piece of kit.

No, it was the standard 1.9 diesel turbo. Even the cruise control looked like it had been connected from the engine picture he sent me!

I thought your signature used to say 'If you ever find a Peugeot 305 GTX, let me know'.

It did, but I can only drive autos now, and I can't find anything better than the 405.

As you obviously really like the car, why not get the auto ‘box rebuilt? I can certainly see the sense in you getting another (if nothing else you’ll have one for spares), but if they’re that difficult to find?...

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400

And a couple of modern Toyotas.
