  6. Not been on this thread for a while....but have we had this yet? Good old Peugeot 2.5D non turbo engined LDV Convoy.... https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/L-D-V-Convoy-400-Peugeot-2-5-diesel-Spares-or-Repair-NO-M-O-T/202430927679?hash=item2f21d2d33f%3Ag%3AwcEAAOSwDdNaruzy&LH_Auction=1 I am not on the laptop just now, so apologies for the lack of pictures.
  7. That's what I think I am going to do, give it to someone I know to sort. I genuinely did not know about them needing to go in a specific way. Oh well....everyday is a school day as they say Top tip for future reference people...check the rear wheel bearings are magnetic on one side BEFORE fitting them. Thank you all for your replies. Apprieciated.
  8. As per title, today I replaced the rear wheel bearings on a 2006, 56 plate Fiesta. I did not have a press, so used the tried & tested socket & extension bar & hammer combination & It worked a treat knocking them out. Got the new wheel bearings (With new ABS reluctor rings) placed the old bearing on top of the new one & placed a bit of wood over the old one & proceeded to knock the new bearings in (both sides), checked bearings were seated correctly,put the circlip on, built it all back up, take car for test drive & once at 15-20mph the ABS light comes on, which was not on prior to this......Bollocks. So...My question is....is the wheel bearing magnetic on one side on these? If so..I think I may have installed the bearings the wrong way. Fuck!!!

  14. Sorry for the delay in posting back, yesterday was a hectic day for me. Thanks for the suggestions, I will when i get time (maybe tomorrow) jack it up & have a look at the starter connections & maybe give it some gentle persuasion with a hammer. & have a look at the earth wire also.
  15. As some of you on here may know, Last year, around October, I bought a 2003, 53 Plate Jaguar 3.0 S Type. I got it MOT'd & sold it on to my Dad, who really enjoyed smoking around in it. In January this year however, it decided to FTP. What happened was, it was parked up as normal, my Dad went out to it the following morning, put the key in the ignition, turned on the ignition, turned the key to start it &........Nothing. No Click, Just nothing. Ignition lights all come on ok, it just will NOT turn over. Various messages on pinging up on the display, ASC Failure, ABS Fault etc. (This has only been since this happened, the car was going sweet up until this point). First thought was the Battery, as it is a Jaguar battery. But the battery was showing as fully charged on the battery tester. This was in January this year....& it has been sat since, looking like an abandoned car. (Still taxed, MOT'd & insured) Last week, my Dad & I tried a brand spanking new battery, which was not cheap, as it is specific to the S Type. Installed the brand new battery.....fingers crossed, Key in the ignition, turn ignition on, lights up as it should.....turn key & Nothing.....So, pissed off by this, my Dad returned the Brand new battery & got a refund. I have heard many things that it could be, from starter motor, Starter motor solenoid, dodgy R20 relay, Bad Earth somewhere, etc. But, we don't have the time to spend trying to fix it. It sounds like a piece of shit I know, but it is a solid old S Type, Not galloping with rot. & when it was working, it was a really nice car to drive & be in. Oh & the day before it FTP'd, one of the rear exhaust back box's fell off, which happened when my dad was driving out the street, it caught the left rear bumper & popped it off the clips holding the bumper on. This still is like this. So, I offer it on here to fellow shitters, £250, However, this price is negotiable but it would be advised to come & see it first. It will NOT drive away, so recovery/trailer would be required. Located in West Lothian, Scotland. Here are pictures from when I first got it.... & then, Just imagine a sort of barn find look now, as it needs a good wash. it's reg is MV53 ZYF. Also...in the pictures, it had just been washed, it has NOT got a water leak.

  17. GLWTS. My S60 is a cracking car (albeit a bit thirsty, but it's a 260bhp T5) & it is a very nice thing to waft about in. it can fair shift on when required..just ask the arsehole in the Mongdeo St220 who came charging up behind me...3rd gear in the Volvo &..bye bye Mongdeo I must say however, the turning circle is rather poor. Mines does require some TLC now,it's done nearly 148,000 now. There is a judder from the front when braking from speed,a clicking c.v joint & I need to get the (important on these T5's) PCV pipework changed, as I do not believe that this has ever been done on mine. Otherwise...I like it a lot. Oh & mines has heated seats.
