    If this primera has never give any trouble, why did you choose to use a photo of it on the back of a flatbed?

    Saw this and could not resist. Not a desirable 205 especially being automatic and and a more door! However it is in good condition, low mileage of less than 11300 miles and a phase1. The photos below were taken the day I purchased the car.

    And the indicators are set up for right hand drive, and that gives any car +1000 points in my book however shit it is.

    So I pulled the pollen filter just now, soaked through on one end. So I've replaced it and bunged some sealant around the plastic cover, seems like a shonky design tbh. Think I caught it just in time, it was dry down the intake, but the filter was very wet.
     
    Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

    Biscuit tin. Loads of holes in the lid. 1/3rd fill it with salt. Leave it in the car when you're not driving it. That should absorb a good bit of damp.

    I used a cheapo kitchen roll left on the back seat of the Rover to similar effect after I'd fixed the boot leak, but the interior had yet to dry out fully.

    Air con/ heater unit, the drain holes block somewhere, Does it have a recirculate/fresh air function stuck on recirculate? Inspect the pollen filter, and its box, full of water/ crud?

    Same with current Xsara,  Misty as a moor on an Autumn day, pulled the filter and it was choked up and thick black fluff all over it. Had same symptoms with feeling of damp but no wetness. Now removed the fans blow proper hot air and seems to have started to clear.

    I studied civil engineering at uni and, as you can imagine, some of the lecturers were really into concrete. They campaigned to save the first reinforced concrete building to be built in Wales from destruction much to the amusement from pretty much everyone else in Swansea who saw it as just an ugly building. However, one summer they cast a reinforced concrete boat, just because they could.

    Musical Offspring now has guaranteed conditional offers from both Birmingham Conservatoire and the Royal Northern College of Music.

    This means I will have no money for the rest of my life and beyond, but I don't care - I couldn't be more chuffed if I'd been given a free gold-plated Vanden Plas 1500...

    Top quality cars these. My Dad got one as a company car, which I bought off him when I finished my undergrad course. Between us we put 130k on the n/a diesel, with only one fail to proceed caused by a snapped gear selector cable.
     
    I hope yours has the string from the parcel shelf dangling out the back over the tail lights.

    Rover dizzy is at the front of the engine, so pretty easy, I've seen the rotors fail on those, seem to be the weakest link when on LPG, especially if the plug gaps aren't closed up a shade to compensate, and pattern ones only last a few nanoseconds.

    Well.................... the interior is all good. He had new headlining in the drivers section fitted when he bought it. The engine seems good, the gearbox is smooth and changes like it should. It's had a new PAS pump. The bodywork has some rusty bits here and there but nothing that I can't sort out. It's noisy, agricultural, large and drives like a taxi. It has had welding done on the sills but it is solidly done. MOT and tax run out at the end of August.

    I don't have much experience of Americans, but meeting this one made me grin.

     
    He is your absolute typical American. Quite large, quite loud and talks about guns at times - but for some reason he loves driving around the good ol' USA in 2CVs and Volkswagen Beetles. Here, he's doing battle with a Dyane that steers the wrong way. Nice chap I thought.
     
    You get idiots in all walks of life. How many Brits have I met that I'd be quite happy never to meet again? It's quite a long list...
