How do open the bonnet on a Peugeot 405?


Pull the bonnet release lever on passenger side of car (Assuming its a right hand drive car). Then at the front of the car midway between the centre and drivers side (again assuming its a right hand drive car) and just under the bonnet there is a little black plastic "T" shaped piece. Pull hard on this as it sometimes sticks a bit and you should hear the bonnet release and then simply lift up the bonnet.

Where is the fusebox located on a 2001 Toyota Echo?

The fuse box is under the hood on the drivers side near the fender. You will see a plastic box with a black cover. There is also a small fuse box in the dash, all the way to the left, in the storage tray. Underneath the steering wheel in that little cubby on the left u will see a panel and it will say FUSE on it, just pull it off and away you go.

How do you change the bulb in the instrument panel of a 1992 Jaguar?

Takeit to a qualified tech you cheap bastard.

Although this is a seemingly cute answer, it does not address the question. I have an XJ8 that has a dash bulb out. I was going to have a "tech" do it, but because I was a "cheap bastard", (who by the way can spell --Take it), I did not wish to pay his quote of $125.00 for a $2.00 bulb. If anyone has a CONSTRUCTIVE answer to this guy's question, I'd be interested.

Why does peugeot 406 airbag light stays on?

It is usually bad connections under both seats a common problem usually cured by snipping off the connectors and soldering the wires together make sure you connect the correct wires together ,.Make sure you disconnect the battery and leave for an hour before starting work or the airbag will detonate when fiddling with the wires.also if its a D8 406 make sure you know your radio code as it will need resetting

go into the boof of estate or saloon, pop the little cap of the side of the inner boot, undo the little screw and at the backand then the light cluster should fall of then take the bulb out of the light cluster and replace the same way as taking, be careful because if ytou drop the bolt whilst tring to put it back on it will fall down into the chassis of the car and rattle and if it is a diesel then be extra careful as they rattle even more. hope that helps!

How can you get a workshop manual for a Rover Metro diesel?

In terms of running gear etc. probably best to get hold of a Haynes manual off of Ebay or try the likes of Halfords etc. - the generic manual for the Metro should include the diesels, just check the years it runs to first. Alternatively, if it is engine related, Rover did use the PeugeotCitroen Diesel from the AX 1.4 then latterly the 1.5 TU5, andd have a copy of that manual here.

Brake Pads and Rotors

How do you replace the Peugeot 407 front brake pads?

Chock the opposite side wheels.

Jack up one wheel only.

Take the road wheel off.

Undo the lid of the brake reservoir.

Undo the bolts holding the calliper.

Tie the calliper up on the suspension leg taking care not to bend the pipe.

Remove the rotor (disc) and replace with a new one as the old one will be under size due to normal wear.

Tighten bolts to required toque.

Unscrew the brake fluid reservoir lid but do not remove to keep out dirt etc.

Unplug wear indicator lead if fitted.

Untie the calliper from the suspension.

Remove anti rattle retaining springs and slide out old pads.

Compress piston full back - keeping an eye on the brake fluid level in the reservoir. If it is getting over full remove excess fluid with a clean syringe and dispose of fluid in accordance with local regulations.

Fit the new pads and new anti rattle springs.

Plug in wear indicator leads if fitted.

Slide calliper with new pads fitted over the rotor into place.

Put some copper grease on the calliper bolts and do up to the correct torque.

Refit road wheel and lower the car to the ground.

Repeat for the remaining calliper/s.

When completing last brake check reservoir fluid level to ensure it is correct then tighten lid.

Hint : Only dismantle one calliper at a time as you can then use the other one as a reference should something go amiss.

How do you change the front fog lamp on a Peugeot 306?

My lad just replaced them on our 306 TD, they are the square ones that fit in to the front bumper. They are fastened on at the bottom by a large nut. As you face the headlights right hand one is accessed via an access hole in bottom of bumper and left hand is more easily accessed same way. Suggest you spray first with WD40 as they were fairly tight, had to swivel side to side & tap them using a piece of bar to get them out. Also had to flex the plastic back while someone did the tapping in order to get them out of the bumper hole. The wiring comes in via a shaped grommet that pops out & back in easily. One light was broke and other badly corroded so replaced with a pair made by Ring that got off ebay(genuine ones go for a lot), new ones look & work great; they are marginally smaller but that made easier to refit. Good luck.

Will it be easy to recode a key for your 406?

If you have 1 key: Switch on the ignition, press the large keyfob twice within 10 seconds. If you have 2 keys: You will need to check which is primary and which is secondary, open the keys and there should be a small label inside with either PRIM or SEC. Switch on the ignition and press the large button on the primary keyfob first, then the secondary within 10 seconds. NB: Some models require the battery to be removed from the keyfob for a minute before recoding. The above worked fine for my 2000 (W) Pug 406 HDi

How do you replace a bulb in the clock of a Peugeot 406?

Been looking for info on this.

Got bored waiting and got stuck in (1997 model).

Get two screw drivers, stick one in between the clock and the dash at the top and another at the bottom.

Lever the clock unit out gently.

Unplug the clock unit connector at the back of the clock.

On the side of the clock unit is a screw, which is the back of the bulb.

Give it a quarter turn to release it (don't give it more than that, as the plastic will have become quite brittle over time and will crumble if you give it more).

The bulb can then be pulled out (pliers or gentle screw driver work to lever it out).

Insert new bulb and refit the clock.

Hope that helps.
