  1. Gear selection issue can be fixed with a simple linkage alignment. Whine in 5th means the box has been run low on gear oil and the 5th gear cluster is damaged. Top it up and keep running it until it breaks (which it unfortunately will).
  2. Time for another update from Chez Fraud ! With Mrs F's Polo fully MoT'd and (finally) working as intended, the 206 became surplus to requirements. Mr Castro was happy to have it back, so it returned to his custody ! And with the ex-HMC crusty Merc having taken over family car duties, the GM900 also needed to go. Here it is, in all its beige glory : After being advertised on here, and unsuccessfully auctioned on eBay, I was really pleased that fellow shitter and serial SAAB owner simon8201 stepped in and gave it a new home ! Finding time for car stuff has been difficul
  3. Looks like it belongs to an Alfa 105 Berlina... Was it marked as "Carello" ? If so, it's worth far more than the sticker price !
  4. Heater matrix ? Check your carpets !
  5. Absolutely love your optimistic approach to shite buying !!! R5s are really nice to drive, in the traditional French way that offers both great handling and excellent comfort. They love to rust, so check it carefully and, if no welding is needed, pump it full of waxoyl to preserve it. Cleon engines are also prone to OMGHGF if they've been sitting for long, so keep an eye on the temperature sensor...
  6. "Liked" because the forum software lacks the essential "I see what you did there" button ?
  7. I don't think we should blame the press for this one ; Citroen themselves marketed it as hydropneumatic :
  8. Probably debris in the hydraulic system ; clearances are really tight in there. Take the filters out of the LHM reservoir and give them a clean, then do some Citro-bics to circulate the fluid around. If it's a keeper, treat it to some Hydraflush. If not, don't worry about it !
  9. You were indeed ! The only way to tell if a LeMans is a DB or a Rene Bonnet is to check the engine (Panhard in the former, Renault in the latter).
  10. That's much better than I expected ! Are the brakes up to stopping from such high* speeds, when a distracted/rude/drunk (delete as appropriate) Frenchman cuts you up ? Also, we need more pictures of the oily bits, please !
  11. Splendid work ! What's the cruising speed like ?
  12. Time for another update from FRAUD GARAGES ! After weeks months years of procrastination, the Doloshite was finally put up for sale : It was purchased by fellow 'shitter GaryCox, who immediately pressed it into daily use ! Old cars need to be driven to keep healthy, so I'm really pleased that the Doloshite has found such a good home ! The Ignis has now completed 26K miles in my hands and simply soldiers on, like the Duracell bunny ! The rear tyres were a pair of aging Falkens that had been there since I bought the car. They had marginally more tread than the legal limit bu
  13. My daily would have been an aging, Japanese faux-off-roader... Something like the Hope(less)Star ON360 : Family car duties would have been entrusted to a crusty old Mercedes estate :
