photo's or video's of tasks/repairs etc.

Post by oggy30 »

Haynes has let those of us down, that own a 206 1.6 16v & other pug related issues. Sometimes a picture or video, says a thousand words. For me I sometimes struggle bad trying to find certain parts or procedures that I need to do on cheeky charlie-the car. I would be willing to help with this too. We could in theory make our own online manual!! The thing is, certain mods or bypasses can be made before we buy the car & it makes life damn hard trying to work out what needs to be done/changed etc. Let me know what you think & if this would be possible. OR if it already exists & I just aint found it!!!!

I bought a Peugeot 207 manual as well as the 206 as the some of the 207s use the 1.6 16v engine. That version is covered in there.

Thank you good sirs. Yep I do intend to photo some of what I've done. There are some clever touches to this car. OK, so an update to the temperature prob. I've done as suggested & fitted a new thermostat. Flushed out the rusty looking rubbish in the cooling system. Drained the oil & replaced the filter. Checked the plugs. Checked other fluid levels & now waiting for the new oil to be delivered. Thanks Grandadmonkey for the tip on the manual & to capncol for the link. Oil should arrive tomw, so it'll be test time after that. I'll let ya know what happens.
