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 have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.



      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.



      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
       
      MEH.
