    1) Are you saying that the engine is vibrating more than it used to? If so this can be many things. Some peopl have experience engine mount failures in the past. As for the A/C, power loss is expected if you switch it on. The extra engine load that A/C places on the engine will be noticable. Then again this could be related to the engine mount.
    2) Did you notice this tail gate gap before? Secondly does it leak in any water? If not I wouldn't mess with it. You might end up making it worse.
    3) Get it fixed under warranty.
    4) Ummmm... why dont you get out the measuring tape and measure the engine if you really need it. Secondly, are you interested in the engine bay size?

    1. At idle the motor does feel lumpy, you can see it when the bonnet is up. Perhaps this is secondary to the agressive cam profile. As for some power loss when the A/C is on um well thats normal, Somewhere i read that cars loose upto 20HP when the a/c is running. I wouldnt say i have any let alone severe vibrations from the steering or gear nob when the A/C is on.

    2. Which gap are you specifically refering to?

    3. Seat handles/adjusters are fine on mine

    4. Nope, if a 2.3L VTEC fits in it thats got to give you some indication, perhaps its time to get out the tape measure?

    Default Things Wrong In My 206

    My seat back rest handle doesnt work.. it pisses me off. But it only doesnt work on the drivers side. So people can get in on the passenger side.

    Also. Ive installed huge speakers for the front of my car and face unit and when i crank my speakers. or AC. The car does shake a little more. But ive also noticed that it also does that if the clutch is warm i think. After ive been driving in peak hour traffic and traffic jams and have to stop start consistantly i find the wheel and clutch do shake more. I am probably jumping to a conclusion that it is because its a warm clutch but its got something to do with so many stops and starts or running time i feel.

    1. Engine idle can be a bit rough sometimes on mine too. It usually calms down after a short drive. For me it's random as to when it happens, ie. it can happen when the engine is cold or hot.

    2. There's another thread with pictures about of a gap at the hatch as well as at the front bumper. I have answered in there that it looks much like mine.

    3. Have the seat looked at by your dealer, if it's damaged it should be repairable under warranty, unless you damaged it yourself!

    4. I'm unsure, I've never seen it written down anywhere to be able to quote for you. As the other guys said, get your tape measure out and go for it!
