    Default 504 Coil placement

    My coil is getting in the way.

    Currently its attached to the alternator securing arm.

    I would like to attach it to the firewall??

    Any problems with my plan? Will the increaced lead length present problems?

    I also assume that it will get jolted around less??

    I was thinking of this as well. But won't this be a fairly long distance. On the firewall i can loop the cord past the engine?

    The coil is mounted on the side of the passenger suspension tower in the 505's.

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    Late 504s have the coil mounted on the inner guard just ahead of the master cylinder.

    Gets in the way all the time... gets wet too. And that's the most important point to consider... will it get wet? Shouldn't if you mount it on the firewall...

    I ended up putting it on the left fender.

    It looks quite out of place and fairly lonely. Do coils get lonely?.

    Will see how it goes for a while. It gave me a chance to replace the dizzy to coil wire anyways. Just long enough for the 66cm coil lead that i bought
