Default Need some help...pls

Hi guys,

3 weeks have passed since i bought my 2.0 hdi and i already spent close to 1500 euro in flywheel/clutch replacement, timing belt, Fap cleaning and service. Brakes need to be done next!

Since i live in Malta, i wanted to ask if a regeneration can be done using peugeot planet, and if yes can anyone please shed some light?

Also, my car is missing the rain sensor, i do not know if the windscreen was changed with a rain sensor type....can someone please let me know if this can be checked by planet, and if yes how can this be done?

I am also interested in changing my radio to an mp3 one and my cluster to the white dials type, can this be done?

Excuse me for all of these questions but i am new to peugeot!

Thanks

Yes, it can be done, but probably not a recommended procedure... you're better off giving it a good high rev run for 20 mins or so.

I was under the impression that all 407s had the auto wipers.... I stand to be corrected, but would have expected the sensor to be there. What does the wiper stalk say? Auto? When you go up 1 click on the stalk, does it come up Auto on the display?

I believe the newer radios will play MP3s, so yes, it should be possible to change/upgrade - will need Planet to complete the coding of the new one to the car though.

If the dials look identical, just in the black option, then I would think so.

Hi jmkent, thanks for your replies.

Malta is very small so there is no way I can get a regeneration done on the road.

My instrument cluster is a 4 gauge one, and my stalk has the Auto option, but there isn't place.in the cluster for auto to be displayed.

Do you think it is possible to change to a 5 gauge cluster?

Try a low gear like second , keep rev`s around 3000 for 10-20mins and start a regen at low speed , its all to do with the rev`s not the speed

As Betty says, you don't need to go fast to get the regen to complete - mine will do it around town if it comes to the point where the DPF wants cleaning.

The 4-gauge panel is quite a bit different to the 5-gauge one, so I haven't a clue if things would be similar enough to swap.... half of it might not work anyhow.
