Cheers but found a couple locally. Had you been local I'd go with you over a breaker. Money better in your pocket than them lol

The hunt for a wiper motor for my wife's 306 is surprisingly bleak. Hers is an r reg 97 model. Do the facelift model before this and the facelift model after have the same motors?

No it's for the wife's car which is a 306. Done to 200nm in the end. Doubt it will come off lol. Thanks though

No as soon as he hit fee stopped. Was parked up for 3 days waiting till I could recover him. There's no air in fuel lines and no sign of fuel leaks anywhere either. I'd doubt it's a fuel leak anyway a...

Hi wife's 306 wiper relay is goosed (no intermittent and they don't move with the screenwash) I've got an old 405, will the relay be the same? (It's a 95, so actually it's new for a 405! Lol)

Post: ego was selling the green ph1 106 diesel?

I know it was months ago, but my brother thinks he's seen it and wants it as it's identical to his. Is it still for sale / alive / whereabouts known? I know it's unlikely but no harm asking. Cheers

I've not looked what's involved with fitting on these yet as not looked into it yet, so I don't know what spacers and stuff there's supposed to be, you'll probably know better than me at the moment :P
