The Moog

Peugeot 406 Hdi - on hold

Recommended Posts

So as the Jag has come into Moog towers it is time to move on the 406.

 

It may do someone as a winter car or just a shed to move house etc.

 

406 estate -90 bhp (although allegedly may have 120bhp)

100k on clock

Mot - Feb 28th 2019

Climate control

Winter front tyres with only 2k on them

Spare pair of tyres on steels

Massive space in the back with seats down

Engine is pretty good

Will do 50mpg on a run

No rust that I can see

Front electric windows

PAS

It's had a fortune spent on it including front strut mounts.

 

No abs or tcs. Pure driving pleasure.

 

Issues

Clutch slips if you Welly it (you can easily drive round it)

Ignition barrel is a bit worn- takes two or three goes to start (nothing to do with engine)

Central locking doesn't

Ew switches are a bit broken - they all work but switch pack cover is off

Smells a bit inside

Scrapes and knocks

AC doesn't work

Trim inside is a bit iffy

Lacquer peel agogo

 

Scrap is offering £200 collected so you could buy it, run for couple of months and then get most the money back. Tuning box could be sold for the extra £100 if it was fitted.

 

Located in Accrington

 

Will get some photos later on.

Thing with roffle is that it needs to be cheap so sub £6. Which then effectively gives me less than scrapping and selling ECU. Plus all the admin of roffles.

 

So feels a lot of grief for no really return. I will leave it up for a few days in case someone is after a cheap hack or load mover before seeing if Beko needs owt then sending it over the bridge.

 

It isn't rare or special - ultimately nowt really wrong with it, but don't want to deal with people after a £400 car.

I see your point and totally understand, be a shame to see it cubed though. Hopefully someone here will take it!

 

FWIW if this is a 90hp model then IIRC it won't have a dmf so no need to even think about that if someone felt inclined to do the clutch, that should add to its appeal.

Mmm the only things I could do with is a steering wheel if yours is in good condition and the stalk assembly so I can repair mine...

 

Don't think there's anything mine actually needs that isn't going down stupid things like the trim bits for the boot carpet and the front drivers side bumper silver insert and the alarm button from the centre console that I'll never ever push anyway!

How smelly is it? Reckon clutch has a few 1000 left in it? Could do with a tip run car for a few months is all.

Not that smelly. Previous owner must have been a vaper.

 

I reckon the clutch would last another year if you didn't just floor it. It slips when boost comes on when you floor it. Once I realised I stopped doing it and has been fine.

 

 

Would be a perfect tip car. Loads of space with back down.

      I've had various threads on the go for different collections this year, but thought I'd condense my threads into one manageable thread to document my ham-fisted tinkering.

      At the turn of the year I was driving a nice, dependable, modern 2011 Peugeot 407 and no other vehicle. It was nice enough, but boring as feck. I'd bought it after a series of disastrous heaps in the awkward age bracket of being new and valuable enough to worry about but old enough to be fucked. The 407 was just too new, too bloated and dull. I had a hankering for old metal, my Mineral Oil withdrawal pangs were strong.

      From January I started looking, there were eBay bids, missed reserves, wasted trips from Gumtree and other such nonsense. I happened on an automatic Rover 216 GSI with one giffer owner from a year old. The chap was giving up driving at 93 years old and his grandson was moving it on. I bid, and failed. It was in London though, about 420 miles away so I wasn't all that bothered. Of course when he offered it to me for my losing bid after the winning buyer was a no show I said yes. I was on the Megabus down to that London overnight for about £15. I hung about in Liverpool Street station like a mad shivering jakey until my train out to the suburb for my first sight of the new steed. It was battered outside but had been well looked after. A frankly insulting amount of cash changed hands and I was away up the road.

      We had many adventures together, it was dependable and it whet my appetite for interesting old motors again and proved that the very bottom end of the market was navigable if I had the patience to wade through the sea of shit to find the odd pearl.



      The 407 was still on the fleet at this point but I was covering a lot of miles in the Rover, with a long commute though the fuel economy wasn't ideal. When a friend's mother was looking for a new diesel saloon to replace the faithful old Xsara she had a scheme was concocted. I sold the 407 to her and was on the hunt for an interesting replacement.

      When I was growing up my dad had a succession of hopeless shitters, indeed I was brought home from the hospital as a newborn in a brush painted Skoda Super Estelle. The best car he had was a red XUD Peugeot 405 with air conditioning and electric windows. So when I found a 1994 GTXD advertised by someone who could actually compose a car advert in the fashion you would expect of a human being educated to a Primary School level, I pounced.

      Of course I couldn't buy a car just down the road so it was on the train to Birmingham. First class no less. I stayed in an absolute flea pit of a hotel and drove up the road the next day. This was a proper bit of nostalgia and a really practical borderline classic car. It had been fastidiously maintained by the previous owner. Apart from there being a hole where there was once a stereo and the lack of working air con it was a pleasant drive home.

      Given their relative scarcity and how dependable this one has proven so far, it's a keeper, I'd struggle to part with it.



      Two cars just wasn't enough to worry about, so this Citroen C1 was acquired. Pure Aleppo spec. A camel can go for weeks, or months without stopping at a watering hole, the C1 has a similar thirst for Motor Spirit. Man maths were employed and worked out that it would easily* pay for itself.




      There have been further movements, I'll recap them shortly. I should probably do some work.

      Lads, lads, lads. Its been ages since I bought a thing, and I LOVE BUYING THINGS. I couldn’t sleep last night, for instance. 
      I feel great because buying vehicles SOLVES ALL OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS (apart from parking permits). 
      Anyway, I just agreed to buy a thing, with collection commencing today or tomorrow. 
       
      In the meantime, let’s spy on the vendors house on street view shall we? My little bundle of joy is tucked in behind that rather tasty 164.

      1998 SUBARU IMPREZA NON-TURBO AWD MANUAL ESTATE WITH ROOF BARS AND MASSIVE FOGLIGHTS FOR DOOM SCENARIOS
      Bought this off Bramz last month, done a few hundred miles in it.  Perfectly reliable, school run kaos etc
      But had some sudden and big household bills loom, so having a big sell-off

      MOT is only to end of this month though. But everything works - all windows, no dash warnings; it's been a handy and hunky dory motor car.  Interior tidy.  Exterior pretty clean, bar the odd knock and scuff and arch bubble.  It's not a shed by any means.
      History file though up to a point, recent bills for service items, but cambelt roulette.  132k.  Tyres are about 18 months old, but they are budget ditchfinders.  I intended to keep it, wanted this exact spec for years, but will have to let it go after all.
      It will need that dicky front caliper replacing as the stickiness comes back after a few days after freeing it off.  Discs look to have little time left on them too.  Bonus is being the non-Turbo it has drums on the rear.  Synchromesh scratchy when cold, clutch feels a bit crunchy action but plenty of meat there
      Bonuses are: it's green, it's the estate, excellent heater, it's AWD for snowzombievirus kaos, got insurance cover it on classic multicar policy (Hagerty) as now it's old enough 1998
      I just need to get my money back.  It owes me 400 notes.  Can go today
      Yes, the number plate is now fixed properly

      Located M1 corridor Watford <> Luton
      £7 a ticket or 3 for £20
      Bargain.
      I'm keeping the Alfa 156 Wagon for now

      Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
       
      The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.
