I think this one appears to be fecked, I've now got it stuck in the middle not turning either way. Wasn't too dear, but a bit of a gamble with old tools. I don't think it was the seller on the make.

 

Only reason I didn't buy a new cheapy was mixed reviews on whichever one I looked at.

 

Purpose was extra help with Invacar screws where I don't have power at the lock-up.

 

Thanks all.

Sounds like it might not have been as tight as they often are.  Did it make any kind of a 'crack!' as it undid?

 

Not so much a crack, more a click.

The Toolstation one is crap....butter metal.. Funnily enough ,I bought a cheap one from the market years ago and it's never failed ,but i couldn't find it , so bought the toolstation one as it was cheap too.

It knackered first wallop ,it was only on a brake disc screw as well .

I asked on my Moodus thread, but no answers.

 

Anyone know where the switch for the boot light is on 2004 (54 reg) Renault Modus is? Light stayed on and flat battery resulted. Bulb removed for now, but I'd like a proper fix.

 

I think it's based on Mk3 Clio so may be the same

Utter heap of shit that tool is. The only reason I kept it was the socket and bits fits nicely on my Makita Impact Wrench. Handle gone into the bottom of the useless tool toolbox.

It's built into the boot latch, but if you can live without the light it's easiest to remove the bulb.

My OH’s Stilo had a ssimilar problem, I disconnected the wiring for the latch and wired in a tilt switch off a 206. Worked perfectly.

My friend wants a 206cc, believe me I tried to get her into an MG TF and it ain't happening. She's on-board with a Streetka too...

Anyway, I've found a 'decent' 206CC good spec and it has alot of factory options. I'm trying to find a price list or a PDF brochure online but I can't find anything.

I'm sure Parkers used to list optional extra prices, but I can't find shit.

206cc's are actually alright, most come with all the options.

Streetka's are shit, as are MGTF's, can't really go wrong with the Peugeot, they are pretty robust, easy to fix and don't rot.

sigs are shit, wgaf?

This one has the JBL audio pack and cruise etc which were options I believe.

There are 207ccs for about £2500 but they're beyond shite right?

I don't think they are to be honest, they look really smart, just avoid any with a 1.4 engine, my wife has a 307CC and I actually really like it, its nice to drive, well specced, punchy, the hardtop is fantastic and doesn't leak and touch wood its been reliable so far, we have just had to put a clutch and DMF in it but I got a grand knocked off the asking price last year as I could hear it knocking so it was an expense we were expecting, its also averaging 50 odd mpg.

207cc's can be had for around a grand if you look hard enough

Fuck me. So the nice 206cc is a thousand hectares away, but I wanted to see if my friend could see out and how hopeless where the rear seats etc? So we went to a local dealer with 2 of them.

We pull up and my buddy says "there's no drivers seat"
There was, but the cover was removed. Because she's a short bastard. The rear legroom wasn't bad, however she couldn't recline as the knob was missing from the seat cover removal...

I ask if we can lower the roof to see if it made a difference to how she sees out of it. The roof didn't work obviously, he tried his hardest and he blamed the seat cover removal as the cause. I said "what about the black one you've got in?"
That was away for brake repair....

I believe we're off to see the good one tomorrow. The boot is enormous when the roof is up. I was shocked at the amount of space.

Strange? .... Out today in ToMM© and it was bloody freezing!

Driving along - easy throttle/tootling on the flat - and the engine temp needle drops away almost to blue.

Bit of throttle/uphill twisty and it is back up to middling.

Question! = doesn't a gauge tell you how *hot the engine is NOT the radiator input?

Thermostat is new & top jobbie :)

*heater always furnace toasty

Went to see the fancy 206 cool convertible.
Boot has a dent, under the boot mat was damp. (Common fault, needs a lubing)

Bumper scuffs. However their site has one price.... Facebook has a £150 less price... And their other Facebook post has £500 less which is a fantastic price.

I've said that if she buys it and she hates it. I'll buy it off her in December for a few hundred quid less than she paid. (Almost free motoring for her) it is a rather homersexual car. But I also have a bright orange Panpan and couldn't care less.

The guy also has an Eos. My first question was "how many roof seals have you replaced?"

He said none. He took it to a VW garage who said. "Your roof doesn't leak, get rid now while you can"

He said he's had it for a few months and he Vaselines the seals and all is well.
