    Gday froggers. I'm Mark and I'm a new member. I've recently bought a 206 rallye which I'm enjoying quite alot so far. I've bee a fan of Peugeots for a long time now though. My old man had a 405 td while i was growing up plus all the motors sports they're in.
    Anyways just dipping my toes in the water as they say before i started askinv advice on the 206 (its got a few minor issues)
    Oh and does anyone know if there is a peugeot club or group in Tassie?

    Mark,

    Welcome to

    There is a Tasmanian club - The French Car Club of Tasmania, Inc. Their magazine is called "The Rampant Frog" - but I haven't seen it for some years.

    They have a Facebook page, but I think their email address is [email protected]
    Regards,

    Simon

    Welcome. I just sold a 206GTi. I have mixed feelings about 206's, having done a bit of work on it in the year I owned it. In some ways, they are very well designed, then you try to do something that should be simple and end up cursing. Often it is due to the really tight spaces under the bonnet - common to many small cars and not specific to this car.

    As far as handling and performance, the 206 is a pretty good platform.


    If I can offer any assistance and advice, I will - but I am not always as expert as I might like to think I am...

    Yeah they are a bit tight under the bonnet hey but so far I'm enjoying working on it. Thanks for the offer of advise so far the only bugs i have is intermittent ac and the indicators only work when headlights turned on. Neither are a big deal just remember to switch on the lights!

    The indicators can be fixed by replacing the comm2000 module. Thats the assembly holding the indicator, wiper and radio stalks.
    I had the exact same problem. I found sidelights were sufficient to keep the indicators working, but sourced a comm2000 at a wreckers. It is an easy part to replace. I did try cleaning contacts prior to buying a new unit and it made little if any difference.

    Still have the old one sitting in the garage if anyone needs an indicator stalk, or the little spring plunger on the end of it, which is apparently a common cause of indicator wobble.

    I bought one for my daughter.
    Not the slightest bit of trouble but she is a kind person.

    The weak thing is neglect by owners because they are so reliable, fix things and do preventive service.
    Check your gearbox oil, they very commonly fail when they don't have oil.

    We had one that had 250,000klms on it and it was still going great.
