    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?

    Not to be picky, but to save any confusion, the tachymetric relay is more like a half to one third the size of a pack of cigarettes, it's the only one bolted to right side of the steering column,...

    Hi it could well be the tachymetric relay which is located on the right side of the steering column under the cowling below the dash, a faulty one will certainly stop the car from starting. Regards...

    You can just use sealing compound, the anerobic type. Take the rear bearing to a bearing place, they can measure it and supply a new one.

    The handbooks call it a Détendeur, and it's at the bulkhead beyond the high and low pressure valves. You will need a refrigerant licence.
