    Default Info on Mi16 spare parts

    I have to replace the left hand CV joint and drive shaft in my 90 Mi16. Also the steering rack and head unit as well. I have sourced a price on second hand. Are there aftermarket CV joints available and are they any good.

    hi jim,

    have you just bought your mi16? I've had mine for about 6 months now. Go to www.eai.com.au, I got some parts from them and they were very helpful. I don't think you will be able to get a new steering rack though. Do a search on the parts forum for people wrecking their mi16s. Matt205 and Benoit de Guio were wrecking theirs a few months back. Why are you replacing the steering rack? I am interested to know as my power steering squeals and carrys on when the car is stationary or moving very slowly. I have a feeling replacing the power steering pump may fix my problem but this is yet to be seen.

    JUst out of curiosity, who diagnosed all this lot? There seems to be an aweful lot of parts on one car and in the same area. It's a wonder you could keep it on the road. I don't know that I've ever heard of one of these or a 16V having so much done in a common area so I'd be inclined on getting a second opinion (without putting words into their mouths) just to see if anyone else comes up with the same diagnosis because you're playing with some fairly pricey items there.
    I'd suggest you have a talk to Turner Driveshafts and see what they have to offer.
    I've used some of their stuff and have been quite happy with it.
    I know a couple of their guys are French car owners so they are au fait with French cars.

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

    Try replacing the belt - there's a replacement part that is slightly different that fixes this problem. Search for it on the forum, or PM Pug_405_Mi16.

    That website really has nothing to do with cars.

    yep,

    There is a shorter belt which fixes the power steering problems !

    Did I post the part number ? I think I did some time ago, if not the old belt with the wrap is hanging in my shed if you want the number.

    Mine used to buck, make horrible noises till the shorter belt went on!


    Cheers

    Sorry fellas I've been away for a few days and only just logged on.
    The power steering head unit is leaking and the steering can be quite rough at times at its limit.
    The CV joint is gone you can hear it a mile away.
    The mech who does the work is here on the Gold Coast and these cars (french) are just about all he works on. I have found him to be reliable and trustworthy. He has had the opportunity to take me for a ride if he wanted. On two occasions now he quickly pointed out and adjusted things on the spot and sent me off without costing a cent. Now when I call him if he thinks my problems are something I can do he tells me how to do it and encourages me to have a go.

    I have sourced second hand parts from Pugwreck at $165 for CV and drive shaft, and $275 for the steering rack and head unit.
    For Dave (mech) he believes that buying the whole units and replacing is not much dearer than pulling everything apart and paying him for his time to replace pieces of a unit.

    Here on the Gold Coast he is the only mech I know working on Peugeots.
    Forget the dealers!

    I take it that's Dave at Burleigh/Miami area?

    I used to work with him, so I know him & he's a top guy.

    Next time you talk to him, ask him when he's going to look at my (family) friends red BX TZi auto for her will you, or I'll have to come down there & toe his a$$ for him!!

    Haven't seen him for a few years but last time I saw him he was a bit thin on top and sporting a mullet.
    By now I'd imagine he'd almost be best described as an "eggshell blonde"
