    Default temperamental 306 speedo

    have a 2001 2.0l 306 rallye with 95K and very occasionally the speedo goes MIA

    sometimes for a few minutes, sometimes for many minutes but mostly works fine

    have read about the sender unit at the gearbox and also that sometimes the speedo drive wheels can loose one tooth causing erratic behaviour like this

    appreciate all suggestions and experiences

    I had the exact same issue and it was the sender unit in the back of the gearbox.
    Mine being a Hdi, it was vary hard to access because the turbo ducting rans straight over the top of it, but it should me much easier to get to on yours.

    Default Welcome to the 306 foible club

    They do that........ and yes it is the sender.....


    Try a replacement from a wrecker..... But the one you buy might start doing it sometime soon....


    It does help to learn to use the taco as a speedo............

    thank you for the feedback - seems to be the way of French design - temperamental but wonderful when it works!

    my wife has literally just landed in Paris to celebrate her and 2 close girlfriends 50th year on this planet - I'm sure they'll experience the same euphoria tinged with a little temperamental!

    Cheers,
