    Hi Shane, How close is it to needing a cam belt etc.? As you have your raised platform there, then it's probably easier to drop the whole lot out...

    Most people get directed to try EAI. The advantage with them is they go by your VIN number of the car and list items by the Peugeot parts numbers...

    Yes you can but the result will be a lot of noise on overrun (ie when slowing down) However - that crown wheel is so badly worn it's not worth the...

    I agree with Beano. I think that's the way to go - remove the outer races and that will give you enough room to lift the center out (once you have...

    Roland,

    Thanks for your advice. It gives every symptom of what you have described. As for the VIN it is on the A pillar and when we rolled it off the truck it is too close to the wall to open the door to read. I couldn't even get a mirror in to try and read it that way. I do however have a number that appears in a "gap" in the dash down near the bottom of the windscreen.

    That number is VF 36 DXFVJ 2113 1389.

    I will be ringing the dealer in a moment or two to see if he will give me the details so I can fiddle along from there. I will also price a starter from him. Problem is he is 220km away so it is not always easy.

    Will email you after I have spoken with them.

    At least I now have an excuse to use the 203 every day.

    Peter J (Flash) Flanagan

    PS do you know the Torpies?
