Hi, I've just signed up here, and I'm amazed at the wealth of knowledge and information at my fingertips!

Been a Peugeot driver for a good 5-6 years now, having had 3 different 306's (am also a moderator at 306oc.co.uk), and have recently picked up a 2006 407SW 2.0 16v HDi , which is basically what has bought me here, on the hunt for information and remedies for the few niggly issues I have.

I seem to have the famous (or infamous) rear light cluster earth problem, and I've already found the guide for the fix....much appreciated on that one, but I'm also having issues with my front wash/wipe function......as in it just doesn't. Pull back on the stalk and nothing happens. Rear wash/wipe works no problem, which has led me to think it could be the stalk? Having had 306's for ever, I was under the impression that each stalk would be individual (as they are on the 306), but I've just learnt that isn't the case! I kinda resent the idea of having to spend £40+ for a whole new comms unit just to fix the wash/wipe function, so I wondered if anyone knows whether I can dismantle the unit and possibly fix whatever is stopping the wash/wipe from working?

Other than that, I'm very happy with my 407....it is a whole different world to the 306's I've had, the most recent being a 2.0 HDi estate, that was lowered, and smoothed and entirely impractical for work and kids. It was also horrifcally broken, but muggins here still bought the damn thing thinking he could make it right. Well that didn't happen, and I've now kicked it to the kerb in favour of the 407, which I love! :D

Well that's a brief introduction into the world of WiNgNuTz, thanks for taking the time to read, and I hope to be able to help out wherever I can. I know I'll get plenty of help and advice already. ;)

Contact user 'trustme' as he can fix comm units or sell a new one if it is beyond reparation, he's a well known user here.

Hope it helps, cheers,

Thanks, trustme did jump in on the thread I had going in the 407 section, but because I had a Valeo unit, apparently he couldn't help. All sorted now though, new unit off ebay for £35, and jobs a good'un. :D
