I also gave the brakes a lick of paint as bright colours on single pot brakes really grinds my gears..

Its hard to say for sure as those seats are not peugeot but there should be 4 torx head bolts that secure the seat to the floor. you could also try splitting the seat from the sub frame then take the sub frame out. That CV boot doesn't look split just someone had put a couple of cable ties on. Get your hands on some metal clips and replace that mismatch!

 

Arches came up nice, also you should replace the stickers then it would look lovely,

jonnygoodhand off here :)

 

(if you do replace the stickers the sh*t left behind is a massive pain in the arse and nothing came close to taking off except brilsol gum remover ;))

Cheers dude,

 

Only one of the seats is on a runner, what I've decided to do is leave them be until I get a new interior then get them out one way or another ;)

 

Yer I noticed the zip ties too, i did indeed find a split though it's on the smallest end on the first rib about an inch long. I've always wondered how you change them so that'll need some research lol..

 

Cheers for the link to the stickers ill 100% be buying some!!

 

Which brings me onto the next update whichll be the paint work, I've decided not to have it resprayed but to polish it the best I can and then replace all the stickers.

 

I'll be going for the standard issue kit but those ones that are bigger the t16's one iirc are very tempting lol!!!

you can buy cone things in which you pull the boot over, but iirc these can be rather differcult! I'm lucky enough to have a friend with a air line boot stretching tool.

buy a universal streach boot cut the top of a traffic cone, put the boot inside out in to boiling water put the end of the traffic cone over the cv joint and spray with wd40 then slide the boot over. fill with grease and secure.

Cheers guys, ive been looking at those cone tools on the 'bay they seem pretty cheap, i have a compressor so could buy one of the air tool types but for the price and how little use itll get i think ill invest in the plastic cone and go from their!

 

Cheers.

I'd rather do it properly and dismantle the inner joint personally :)

I have no idea how to do that though lol..

 

What would i need to do take the shaft out the hub end then just pull on it to get it out the box?

Good point i suppose the oil wouldnt stay still if i pulled the shaft out lol..

 

I hate bodging things with a passion but getting a "strechy" boot and only pulling it out the hub is very appealing, is it that much of a bodge or just an alternative solution?

its not a bodge at all imo, just a massive time saver. why spend ages geting cv grease every where when you can buy a tool that does it in secconds.

Well this update should begin with "The drivers side outer cv boot had a split in it so i changed it" however i didnt change it then found the inner one was leaking thin oil so decided it best to change the whole shaft. Which i couldnt get out :n:

 

Going to book the car into the garage that does my MOT's they can struggle, ive given it enough goes now.

 

As i got no service history with the car ive decided to change everything starting today with the coolant, ever since i got the car its got hot when stood idling to long periods with is another problem i wanted to look into.

 

My stash ive been collecting for the next couple of weekends!!

 

SDC14345.jpg

 

The old coolant was badly stained with oil.

 

SDC14343.jpg

 

Still confused though as when i dropped the bottom hose the coolant in the radiator was blue and didnt have any oil in?? almost like the car had a huge air leak which would also of caused the over heating :detective:

 

Coolant tank was heavily stained so that got a good scrub.

 

Before

 

SDC14341.jpg

 

After

 

SDC14344.jpg

 

Fitted with fresh coolant

Next up as i said above the car will be going to a garage for the shaft change and gearbox oil swop with the fresh stuff i bought from Peugeot this morning.

At least the car looks in a lot better state than castle point! Do love a yellow rallye, if you ever fancy selling it locally I'd be more than happy to take it off your hands! And I see you know chris? Owns the Saxo your parked next too, I go to uni with him, Bournemouth is a ridiculously small town.

 

On a more random note, your not related to a chap called Harrison foster? Went to school with him and bumped into him a while ago and said his brother picked up a rallye and as your in Bournemouth I thought I'd ask!

Finally got around to trying to sort out the abortion of an air intake the car came with, after a search it become obvious the best option for the engine is the original s1 air box the rallye comes with from the factory.. so as standard one was sourced,

 

Before box with what looks like laods of room

 

SDC14383.jpg

 

Box in place where it should be

 

SDC14384.jpg

 

Which for obvious reasons didnt fit :wall:

 

The manifold and the "thing" on the rad are in the way, even if jiggled it about it it would be touching the engine and/or rad :n:

 

SDC14385.jpg

SDC14386.jpg

 

Back to the drawing board i suppose :panic:

 

Did receive this though the other week which i now need to learn how to fit lol..

 

SDC14387.jpg

 

Opinions?

Hard to tell, but is that a gti rad? And is that airbox from a 106?

 

if i were you i would find a 16v c2 vts airbox as they have less engine bay room than you and the airbox sits alongside the.battery. plenty of c2 owners flogging them in favour of a 'gsr' induction kit :/

I have no idea about the rad dude I can take another photo ?

 

Yeah it's a 106 s1 rallye airbox, meant to be perfect for the engine. I'll look into the c2 box!!

Thats the fans switch on the rad, I would use a length of silicone hose (bend) and a air filter on the end near the front? Rather than trying to retro fit a air box not designed for the bay?
