Peugeot no longer sell the repair loom, eBay is your best bet. For heatshrink, there's two types, get the self-adhesive one, so it self-seals and provides a watertight connection. - Get this in dif...

LP pump is easy enough to replace. Get some WD40 and spray it around the big plastic ring to help loosen it. To unscrew the ring, I used a hammer and a large flat screwdriver with small, light taps to...

Diesel's have no throttles, it's the fuel which is regulated, not the air intake. If your car is an early one like mine (99 T), unplugging the MAF will cause an engine light and will go into limp home...
