  1. Past hour
  2. Erm, I have no way to measure the toe on loose arms etc hence the question. Which is are vtr arms base model or vts equivalent. If it helps the reg of the car they came off was cn51zry
  3. Today

    Xsara VTR rear arms (not VTS)

    if there's a difference in the toe angle, no.
  5. My function in life appears to confuse people is the VTR arm the same as VTS or Base is the question, sorry
  6. welshpug

    Xsara VTR rear arms (not VTS)

    your post confuses me, you ask if they are the same yet state they are not the same
  7. Can a mod move the topic to Techincal please? Apologies :) New stalk on order as the “latching” for high beams has never been the best (pattern part £20, as opposed to £600 Pug genuine one on ebay...wtf!!) relay is a “type 23” whats the modern day equivalent?
  8. Would anyone know if the VTR rear arms are the same as the base model or VTS? Theres only 0.5mm of toe difference between the two it seems but I'd like to know as I've got a set of arms here and am debating fitting them for the extra camber. This is the best info that I've found (from sandy)
  9. Morning, my hazard light and rear fog light switches light up intermittently, I.e. if you hit them. I think the bulbs inside them have poor connection. i can’t see how to take them apart to fix them, can it be done or do they need replacing? thanks.

    Driving Lamps not turning back off?

    I have exact same problem and replaced the relay yesterday, it made no difference.
  11. You would have been better off in the technical section but I reckon you are right in the 2 possibilities. I had a similar problem with the stalk but I would swap the relay over first as its so easy before diving into stalk replacement.
  12. What year is it? If it’s a TU then the carb and Camshaft from the xs will make a very noticeable difference then a 4-2-1 manifold if you can find one, most people modify an aftermarket Saxo VTR manifold the 1.1 uses a straight through centre exhaust section first of all I’d put some good tyres on it, and make sure the suspension is working as it should, look to upgrade the brakes to 1.6 gti callipers and 1.9 gti discs
  13. Yesterday

    'Box of bits' 1.6 GTI restoration

    Car has turned out very well , nice job
  21. Always a few jobs need doing every year , still looking well though
  22. That looks a really good job you have done now ,well done
  23. Thought I would post an update the welding is finally finished!!! I have now painted the underside with rustbuster EM121 epoxy mastic this stuff is tough once dry and applied sprayable seam sealer to give that factory finish. Now just waiting till it gets a bit warmer to paint the underside with gravitex stonechip & 2K paint.
  24. Last week
  25. Just bought a newer car to replace the aging 7 seater bus. Was trying to avoid the Peugeots but ended up with another peugeot Bought a very practical 2+2 now that the kids are all grown up and have their own driving licenses. Not sure what I bought was sensible but during this pandemic sensible goes out of the window and got myself Peugeot RCZ R.
  26. So, my driving lamps come on correctly with the main beams. Can hear relay clicking on too. but they won’t turn off and stay on, until you turn the lights completely off then back on again. The relay (type 23) also does not “click” off, even though it clicks on correctly. earths are all good. any ideas? Could a Faulty stalk or faulty relay be the culprit?
  27. Been a while since last post, haven’t done many miles! Passed MOT last week with an advisory for slight corrosion on front brake pipes so not bad for 189,500 miles. Spent a day sorting the messy front headlight wiring and doing some new connections. Dim dip has never worked since I had it so that’s next on the list. also my driving lamps are clicking on correctly with the main beams, but are not clicking back off so need to investigate that!
  28. Agreed , shame really all of them haven't been mass produced with Motronic 1.3 or Motronic 3.1 .. so much better engine managements and yet they fitted it on just a small scale of Peugeot/Citroen models , like Citroen ZX 1.9 Volcane - haven't seen one for more than 17 years ! D
