    Default Evil Squeeky dash

    the dashboard on my missus 92 405 squeeks and vibrates... ALOT
    the previous owner said it has done this since the imobliser went mental on a trip to france and the dashboard was removed to work on the problem,
    also the heater asn't worked since then ether, the fans work as does the external/recurculate leaver just no heat

    Wow - it must have been a bad repairer to have mucked up that much!

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    You have a bit of a problem. Peugeot use a special plastic in their dash assemblies called "rattleite". There is no cure - they have been using it for decades. Turn up the radio to drown out the noise. Or buy a car with a diierent dash (i.e. not a Peugeot).

    FWIW, I had cause to fit a new speedo cable to my 16V Cit BX and in the process found all these things in the dash that were put there to make it rattle; I can't think of any other reason. I mean a speedo cable sitting on top of a hard plastic duct is going to rattle isn't it? So I grabbed a fistfull of rubber carpet underlay and wrapped up wherever it sat on top of the hard plastic or went through something it was going to vibrate on....'tain't rocket science so I'm stuffed if I know why Pierre' the design engineer didn't think of it.
    As far as squeaks go, Nissan worked this out a few years ago; if it's plastic and it sits against more plastic, rubber, steel or glass, it'll squeak so spray where it touches with silicone release spray and the squeak is all gone. May have to do it more than once but it will work................and FYI, it isn't the fact it's a F**d that the avatar got zapped, but because we are conveniently hosted by a serious Citroen enthusiast for free, so we don't use any more bandwidth than we have to unnecessarily as a gesture of thanks for the free hosting, but remember, we are aussie frogs and the closest F**d ever got to this was by buying Simca out many years ago but they then shut the factory down, so they aren't exactly top of the popularity tree with French car owners; we still talk to 'em though.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!
