    Default WTD Peugeot 505 parts

    Hi, I am the proud owner of a 505 STI auto, looking for a few spares before embarking around a long road through Australia, including a fair few unsealed roads

    Never owned one before, and I am not sure about what is likely to break down on those (feedback welcome), but would have thought the following would be a basic shortlist:
    -water pump
    -belt
    -fuel pump
    -ignition bits
    -spare wheel

    The spares are emergency type to avoid being stranded on the side of the road, so I am after 'working' parts rather than 'good' replacement parts if that makes sense.

    Feel free to get in touch if you are thinking of clearing your shelves!

    I don't know anything about STIs (I'm a carby man) but have you considered getting the cylinder head bolts re-tensioned before such a long trip ?

    A couple of spare radiator hoses wouldn't go astray. I myself would definitely carry a spare alternator or at least the regulator which screws onto it (and as it's an auto which you can't roll-start, perhaps even a spare starter ! )


    Also make a list of places you can call in the event of a breakdown, who mail-order. Eg. EAI, Caravelle and Pugwreck (and find out the times they actually answer the phone...they're different from their stated opening hours)

    Also if you aren't 100% confident in the timing belt, water pump and tensioners, replace them before you go. Might save a lot of headaches.

    Thanks. I wasn't aware of the cylinder head being a potential issue. I am guessing this is a simple re-torquing to spec, as opposed to changing the screws/threaded rods?

    The head bolts are a torque to yield type and do not need re-tensioning.

    I would have the bits and pieces you need , located in Gosford , they all came from good working cars , but have being stored for some time , water pump seals may have suffered. Dissy , spare hoses etc should be fine PM me if interested

    Changing the water pump by the side of the road would be very courageous if you have never done one before , its under the cam belt . Likewise the fan belt for the pump is behind the AC belt , best bet is to install a new cam belt and locate a spare fan belt behind AC and cable tie it out of the way before you leave .

    Get rid of any ribbon type hose clamps , they can be very hard to undo in situ , replace with worm drive clamps and have in your tool kit the correct size nut driver to suit clamps.

    Repack your wheel bearings.

    I hadn't realized STIs had torque-to-yield head bolts. They came in that early, eh ?

    Good advice...hadn't thought of that. He can check the ends of the small hoses and cut off any buggered ends, shortening them if possible.



    Olivier, you are taking a pressurized tyre sealer and re-inflater, aren't you ?

    Nice trick , wouldn't have found that in the manual !

    Beano - yes, inflator and all that. Hoping to find an extra spare wheel too, you never know

    Rally - thanks, I'll try to contact you separately about the spares

    Thank you all, really appreciate the help and advice
