Morning All,

Okay here starts the silly questions:

1. Is it normal for the display to only show the trip/fuel consumption, etc for about 5 seconds, and then going blank again, with just the kilometer reading remaining?
2. If I put the key into the starting thingy, I can hear a hissing noise coming from the back of the car. This noise goes away after about 10 seconds. Is this normal, if so, what is happening?
3. Was also about to asked about how to open the boot, but worked that one out, clever of them to put it in the 0. Are there anyway that you can open the boot from inside the car. (Like a lever or something like that)
4. Were is the radio antenna?
5. Are there no beep/beep when you activate the alarm?
6. They should shoot the guy that designed the windscreen washer outlets. All they do is to obscure your view of the road with the fine mist it spits out.

Sure there will be more, as time goes by.

Regards,

Gerhard

hi, ill answer some of these from personal knowledge. but trem1 and a few others will answer with the definates

1) no, on my 307 the mpg will stay on untill you held the button to reset the trip or pressed it to change the view. so the 407 should be similar.

2) that hissing noise is probably the fuel pump priming up...nothing to worry about, start worrying if your car just wont start at all.

3) should be able to piggy back of the "o" if its just a button to put an electronic lever in...if thats what you mean.

4&5) not too sure so i wont attempt.

6) if its just yours that does this it could be a split pipe that makes the water lose pressure so it will come out like that or a failing washer bottle pump.

Hi,

4, Aren't sure about the saloon as I drive an SW.

5, Yeah no beeps when locking/setting alarm.

6, This is normal and in my opinion the pattern of spray is great for cleaning the screen when compared to washer jets of old. But I'm sure they can be replace with some ones you would prefer.

Cris.

1. On the 407, yes. This is normal. It's in the handbook.
2. Normal. Fuel pump.
3. Nowhere. Remote key or the '0'.
4. Built in to the HRW. Clever stuff.
5. No beep, it's automatic and comes on when you activate the deadlocking...if indeed it's fitted. It was an option on all, but as standard only came on Sport/SE Lux upwards.
6. The same nozzles are used on the 307, 207, 308, 3008, 5008 and more Shituins than you can shake a stick at and no one else has a problem with it. T'was an idea pinched from VW, makes the water used less and the bottle smaller and hence lighter.
