The Peugeot... [Aug. 12th, 2007|08:04 pm]
The Love Bug
I’ve had a problem with the Peugeot in recent days, where I could travel forward no problem, but when I tried to reverse, the off-side rear wheel would lock up. Going forward again - after a slight judder - is fine.

I took her to Kwik-Fit this morning, and the brake lining on that wheel had come away from the shoe! How that wheel had not locked up going forwards, I’ll never know.

Anyway, both sets of break shoes need replacing, and also the brake cylinders on both sides had started leaking, so they needed replacing too!

£178 later, and the near future of my beloved 206 is secured for now. Apart from a small issue with the exhaust, I think the car is ok for now. Caroline will use it for local pottering, and I’ll use the Vectra (which we go and pick up next weekend) for work and family trips out, etc.
