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.

      First some background:
      I was brought up with no car interest, a car was transport and nothing more which resulted in a selection of poor cheap cars being the cars of my youth.
       
      Fast forward many years (just over 9 years ago) and I have a wonderful* Vauxhall Vectra estate to carry us about. Unfortunately it is crap and throws fault codes at us with nothing being there when it is checked (even at Vauxhall)
       
      As Mrs T is the main pilot of this chariot with the two little miss T's on board, it has to go.
      The hunt is on for the new steed to safely and comfortably carry the family around. I have a company car at the time so big journeys are not an issue.
       
      ebay is my weapon of choice to find the new family car. It has to be good value cheap for no other reason than I am tight.
       
      Weeks of research with lots of cars that are too expensive and too far away for easy collection end up in my watch list.
      Finally a possible is spotted in Fife. I go and have a look and find a poor looking but solid car. One previous owner and lots of history.
       
      The auction was to end on the Saturday at midday, we were going to be out! I decided on how much I was willing to gamble on it and on the Saturday morning I put in my max bid but straight away it went to my max bid, I was winning but it had three hours to go with no room for me to go up! We went out anyway.
       
      I spent the next three hours kicking myself for not bidding more while we were out as it was the first car I had seen that fitted my criteria. Fate was in charge.
       
      On returning home I go straight on ebay to find 'Congratulations.............'
      For the grand total of £500 I had just won this fine vehicle!
       

       
      It has 5 months MOT and after fitting seat belts in the rear for the girls car seats it is pushed into daily service.
      My gamble and subsequent use results in a perfectly reliable car that actually does what it is supposed to do.
       
      Even more importantly Mrs T loves it so a win all round.
       
      All my cars have names (most are earned over a bit of time) and this one is called 'Gwendolen' ( G reg car and from Wales originally. I hate the name but I am not going to argue)
       
      That sums up part one, more will be along later (probably much later)

      My Compact is up for sale again, MOT until November.
      Manual, 2l turbo diesel, 165k miles.
      £750

      I've replaced a load of stuff over the years, been meticulous with servicing. Brand new turbo, crank pulley, injectors, inlet seals, handbrake mech, vortex filter etc). It had a new BMW battery from dealer a couple of years ago. New spare wheel, toolkit, books, wallet, first aid kit box etc
      Swirl flaps in the inlet have been blanked. Has black M-sport alcantara interior, with bucket seats (fully adjustable) and leather bits. It's really clean inside and out. Cool fold out rear windows like old Japanese cars but they’re auto electric powered
      17" E90 alloy wheels with four 5 month old Landsail tyres
      Two keys, service/manuals, dealer keyring, etc.

      The only things wrong with it:
      the glow plug ECU is reporting a fault.
      The front bumper is stone chipped.
       It has always started first turn of the key in whatever weather in the four years I've had this, so I'm sure the glow plugs are working, but it's just giving an error. It has had this fault in INPA since I've had it.

      It shifts quite well with 150bhp, I've managed 70 - 80mpg on a gentle run over 200 miles, but always get an average of 60mpg. There's no rust on the car, it's pretty mechanically sound I've done close to 70k miles in it I think. Only the crank pulley has failed on me in that time.

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
