1995 Peugeot 405 executive estate, petrol auto, leather.

MOT - 27 September 2019, yes 11+ months

Tax - yes

Mileage - 128k

Location - near Bourne, Lincs

 

Aircon - working

Cruise control - working

Remote locking - working, not sure about central locking on tailgate though.

Leather seats - soft and comfy

Overall condition - interesting, various dents, scuffs, bodywork is a bit rough around the edges. No rust issues, these are galvanised iirc. There are a few minor trim bits missing, front interior door lock covers, headlamp washer covers. The bonnet release currently involves a cable tie, it works fine though.

 

Headlining - knackered/sagging

Fuel gauge - French. If you're driving on the flat in a straight line and at a constant speed then it can be assumed to be roughly correct.

Electrics - French, current foible is the window controls on the drivers door are back to front (up is down)

Electrics - there is a leak somewhere. I've not looked in to it as if the car is used regularly it's fine. If it's left for a week or so then the battery goes flat, so it gets disconnected.

There is a red light on the steering wheel that flashes for a bit when you first start the car then stays on solid red whilst driving. I don't know what this is and have just ignored it.

 

I bought this off djimbob on here earlier this year, and I think it might be another ex-bramz car and minor forum bike.

I used it for work doing 150 miles a day when I initially got it and it was really comfy and averaged about 37mpg with the a/c on all the time. It has since been on loan to a mate, he took it to his local garage who did the recent MOT work, so it cost me just over £200 to get another years ticket on. There is only one advisory, slight exhaust leak.

No lights on the dash … yay

 

IMG_20181013_120406.jpg

 

One light on the steering wheel - ho hum.

 

I think it needs a new thermostat as it takes a while to get to temp and the PO did mention it could probably do with a fuel filter change. I provided these for my mate who was going to change them whilst he was using the car, they have not been fitted and are included.

 

I have probably forgotten some stuff, so bear with me, the above is from memory.

Oof.

I will have to run this past my wife - she's generally happy to leave my car decisions to me, but we will both be using it and this is a fair bit older than anything else we've discussed.

Don't hold it for me but I may well be interested.

Nice. The cruise control appeals to me. Shame I'm not in the market for a comfy cruiser yet. :(

405's have galved body panels but sadly they do like to rot, especially just in front of the rear wheels. Nice to see one without even a single advisory for rust for a change! 

 

I'm sure someone will enjoy wafting about in this. GLWTS.

I must have been lucky then, I've had eight since 2006 and not one of them has been rotten anywhere!

Yep I had that for a few months last year. Bought it from some dive dealer in Poole, and it was my first ever automatic. I genuinely liked that car.

Mr D Spares had one a while back and it was fucked, even though he has the skills to repair it it still got baled! The 405 Facebook guru has also put up some photos of a couple he has been forced to cut up and break for spares, one looked mint on the top but the tin worm had had a field day sadly. The sills are completely sealed it appears but there is a seam under the sealant in the rear wheel arch and it can split, water gets in and simply can't get out. It appears to be a common trend with 205's, 306's and even ZX's. The two Zx's I recently saved had suffered badly in the same area.

Front subframe mounts are prone too and IIRC the estates can rot badly in the boot floor area too so this one is definitely better than many out there.

Yes, this is definitely the ex-Bramz car, that I won in the Roffle and never got to drive because I swopped it immediately with Djimbob for the red Saab.  I did get a ride in it though and it seemed like a nice motor.  I'd love another go at it, but the obstacles to that are well-known at the moment...

Wow. Anyone after a wafty leather-clad French mistress running in the correct fuel is spoilt for choice on here between this and Colc’s Xantia. Two pretty rare flavours of rapidly disappearing barges. Hope it gets a good home.

Red light on steering wheel is another airbag light to supplement the dashboard one. The rover R8 was similar too

They were always missing, hence I have a pair of NOS ones. They can be bought from me for a lot of money.

Mrs H has given a noncommittal nod, but it looks like I've missed my chance before I'd even seen her! I will learn to act quicker.
