Yes, I will :twisted: At least it'll save me a bit of money :)

There was one job I had to do just before the MOT and that was to run the Pug Planet across it to extinguish the EML that comes on every now and again due to a phantom issue with the downstream oxygen sensor...

It's been to the main stealers to have this problem investigated a few times when it was Robyn's mums' car but they could never find the cause... A fault clear always sorts it for MOT purposes...

Nice one - hard to believe that it got through with a broken spring though.... presumably it's just a bit of the end missing, and therefore not that obvious? Should be easy enough to change - drop the bottom damper mount off, and then it should just pop out. Mind you this is PSA, so it will probably require the application of spring compressors to get it out out :roll:

EML on is not in fact a fail, odly enough.... as long as it passes the emissions test.

To be honest Richard, I've not looked at the spring yet but according to the tyre place it's right on the end and I guess not visible unless the wheel is off...

I'll get it sorted for Robyn as soon as the weather warms...

I have spring compressors :-D

Hopefully longer than two days Davie but in MK it's tyres that really suffer due to all the roundabouts...

Ran down in the V6 to Somerset yesterday... Lovely trip. V6 as usual lovely..

Oil and filter here for the C1 oil change but it's going to be delayed as I have a poorly 407 belonging to a Team WFA member sitting on my drive with cooling issues... It's massively overheating.. Top hose red hot bot rad stone cold...

Thermostat already swapped and rad not blocked....

Under investigation...

Praying it's not the HG as that's an engine out job...

Will report again soon...

That's what we're going to look at next Simon. Praying it is that...

If it's the HG then the job is going to be big as we'll also overhaul its 4HP20 at the same time...

If you need a late model (small diameter) ES9 water pump, I have one here that I bought in error.

This particular 407 is a 2.0 16V Hdi diesel Mike but thanks for the offer :)

I doubt the water pumps are the same :(

Funnily enough it's not the same, Jim.... :)

I recalled something odd about the 2.0 16V Diesel cam belt - looked it up, and remembered what it is - there is no injection pump - it's driven off the other end of one of the cams. Looks like you need a tool to lock the crank shaft via the starter aperture / bottom of the flywheel to undo the crank pulley bolt....
