  2. Great news. Have fun thrashing it once again - after all it is a race car. :-)

    Sounds like it could be the throttle position switch.
  4. It’s been a while but the wait is worth it. I picked up the 205 from the repairer today. The front has been replaced (thanks to a donor) from the firewall forward. So much work. It’s also had a full respray and looks superb. Too good to race?

    Barn Find Laser Green 1.9 Gti.

    Shocks stripped and the top mount bearing fell to bits , will need springs too as they are too short and rusty , Stripped the front sub frame and one of the anti roll bar clamps the captive bolts spun round but I got it out after a battle . The circlips on the front bearings were stuck too and broke my cir clip pliers ,one bearing was totally siezed and would; not rotate anyway bearing are now out and had to grind the races of the hub flange ,I marked both a little with the grinder but should do fine . The seller on ebay would not agree the 309 rear bearing fits a 205 gti 1.9 so got one on the way from a different source . New Bilstein B4 shocks are here now and just gathering up stuff for blasting . Went in the garage for 2 mins and cat followed me in and jumped up on the bonnet while my back was turned !!!!!!!!! luckily no damage although I did managed to knock over the box with the front spoiler in and put a tiny scratch in which was annoying , first of many no doubt lol. The newly painted shell is just a sitting target for damage ,have tried to move everything as far away as possible ,will get a sheet to put over it but a carcoon might be better as dust is going to be a real issue in the shed. The front subframe is in very good condition must have been all the oil leaking kept it mint .

    Different output shafts

    If the spline count is the same then the double spline shaft is BE3r, if its different then BE4r
  10. SRDT

    Different output shafts

    The last BE3 also had it that way, the BE3 and BE4 existed alongside for years unlike the clear transition from BE1 to BE3. The shaft on the left is also longer and that is probably BE4 specific.

    Different output shafts

    be3 vs 4 it seems. i'm daft!
  12. This is new to me, but I suspect not to all of you. I bought a xsara vts box with a smashed 3rd and worked to rebuild it but use a diesel 3rd and 4th set that, ratio wise, is super close. However it seems there's more than one type of output shaft spline arrangement. The xsara shaft is almost fully splined and the 3/4 gearset is splined at both ends. The derv shaft is only splined at the top and the 3/4 gearset is splined at one end only. The spline size also differs as does the actual tooth size so I'm guessing this is an early Vs late thing?

    Thanks Anthony the ones on ebay are firstline but only show a bearing and nut no other parts and only listed for 309. I might just buy one to see. Spending money now on new bits 3 of 4 bearing are shot one of front is completely siezed and won't turn at all by hand. Gathering bits up for blasting now one of front arm ball joints seems very tight and one of front shocks busted plus top mounts fell apart not much reusable on this shed lol
  14. Cracking turbo fair play, so underrated.

    AFAIK 205 and 309 1.9 GTI rear wheel bearing assemblies are the same. ZX/306/Xsara ones with ABS are different with a wider offset and require a different stub axle. I see quite a lot of supposed 205 GTi rear bearings on eBay and the like which clearly have ABS teeth on them (205's with ABS only had teeth/sensors on the front axle, not the rear) - I've never tried one of these, but my guess is that they're actually 306 ones and thus the wrong offset for 205's. Cracking work so far btw - shell is looking great after paint

    Are 205 gti 1.9 and 309 gti 1.9 rear wheelbearings the same ,seller says they are not and don't fit but they seem to have same part number , looking the correct first-line part number if anybody knows it .Is the difference due to the large backing washer that sits behind the bearing ?

    Rear beam rebuild questions

    Ok thanks for that everyone for that has cleared things up for me. I have a few questions and also some thoughts. Im going to get all the bolts zinc plated, and the rest of the parts ( beam tube, torsion bars etc )will get sand blasted and painted. I was looking at the ARB levers and was thinking i cant plate them because the splines of the torision bar wont fit any more? Another thing are all the nuts m12x1.25 ? ( Tom Feton thread) as these will also need changing.

    @joshWas this a trans X diff or a quaife one you fitted? Have you got it to work properly? What box did you use as a base?

    Door moulding clips

    When I re-fitted mine recently the trim clips were already on the red trim, and it wasn't very difficult to do, so probably easier to slide all the clips on to the trim first.

    Door moulding clips

    Hi guys, iv’e sussed it to fix the oblong (new ones are white old ones are black) plastic block clips on as farmer states on a thread i came across you have to slide them on to the rivets making sure they’re the right way up, now the red insert has a slightly bigger channel at the bottom so if the clips are the wrong way up the red insert wont slide on, and they can only go one way so you can’t put them on back to front, then to attach the red trim insert you have to slide them on a squirt of silicone spray helps. In the photo the clips are upside down can you see the two tangs at the bottom well they have to be at the top, that’s how i did it but you have to slide it on very carefully and slowly sometimes i had to use a small screwdriver or my nail to help line up the lugs at the top and bottom of the clips, have a loose clip in your hand and practise sliding the clip into the red insert to see which way round it goes. There’s always more than one way to skin a cat so you could possibly slide all of the clips into the red insert then slide each clip one at a time onto the rivet using a screwdriver to slide it on while you apply bit of pressure on the red insert, the bumpers are easy compared to that

    Rear beam rebuild questions

    Hopefully you realise bearings are fitted a specific way, especially inner bearing. Bearings, crossmember seal, seal, collar over trailing arm shaft should all be an interference fit. Genuine parts prove this, especially the crossmember seal. The rounded edge of the arb lever seal its against the lever, with the squarer edge pointing towards inside of trialing arm when fitted. The arb is fitted with the lesser splines and lever from the left side and then the other arb lever wound on from right hand side.

    Rear beam rebuild questions

    Don’t get too hung up about the 0.05mm, if you look at the main seal there is a lip for the shaft, then another that seals against the top hat. Set the adjustment so that the top hat is sealing on that lip, without flattening it totally. Too loose and that lip won’t do its job sealing. Too tight and that lip will quickly be worn away and come off the seal. The cup that the seal fits in is tricky to assemble, the main thing really is to make sure that the seal is square in the cup and the cup is square to the tube.

    Yes use a press, place a spacer 2mm thick and press down till the shaft stops against it. Torsion bars first, the arb gets in the way and also needs the clearance setting at 0.5mm each side. Seal collar fitted first, pop the seal in, fit the arm.

    Rear beam rebuild questions

    Ok so 2mm for the shaft, you reckon its ok to use a press to get the proper distance ? so if i understand i put the collar on the beam tube, tap into place until it is sitting 2mm from the end of the recess? fit the seal all the way in (is it easier to fit the seal to the collar externally) then fit? then build up the rest of the beam and then once that is done tighten up the shouldered bolt to pull everything together and set collar distance @ 0.05 mm, then lock it all off. Just a thought do you do the torsion bars first or the ARB bar first? you really are a wealth of knowledge Mei, thanks again, for helping me out.Insert other media Gavin
  26. Very rare to find a level sender in a 205, rarer still to ever see one working, I would not waste any time on it, there's nothing wrong with your car!

    Rear beam rebuild questions

    All the specific detail is covered in one of my threads a few years back, but specifically; 2mm recess for the shaft, not 5mm. the seal collar is set 2mm gap, not fully seated, seal pushed in fully and then with the torsion bars fitted they should be set to a 0.05mm gap and locked in position with the stud and locknut. The arb seals and bush are not handed. Try 312mm
  28. @ DamirGTI Please tell me , where to mount and what is OEM number of the sensor. https://catalogs.ssg.asia/peugeot/?lang=en&fbclid=IwAR0qH6-iyNmSsSSL3V_XvRczG7VdToN-qD7C92CpaIkCjBi8ccYkylxNHFI#
