  1. I still have two - the S wagon and the '92 Mi16. Wagon needs some muffler work (suddenly it's embarrassingly loud!), but running great. Mi16 looks great but driving me nuts. Two-yr. old battery, alternator, etc. have been checked out at Advanced Auto Parts and everything checks out good but keeps stranding me (my battery pack having a harder and harder time doing its job). I charge it up - the car - at home, it starts right up. Buy the groceries, come back to the car, engine sounds like it cranks once-around, then dead; not even clicking. A jump start from another car gets it going instantly! It was doing this last year. I put in a new starter from Brian H., which seemed to do the deal, but it's doing it again. Alternator checks out good. I put in a different (old) coil yesterday and will be checking it out today. Not optimistic. I'm thinking maybe distributor, but I'm not in the mood to go there. I AM open to suggestions. But thanks for asking. They're still worth having. fs
  2. Life is Good When.... you notice a black on black Alfa Guilia coming up behind you, in your Mi16. You give him a thumb's-up as he passes you, and he's already giving you one! fs
  3. I agree, except that I haven't been able to find another factory '89 seat belt to install into my wagon. A few years ago, when I had three 405s, my two Mi16s had 89 belts and my "poor ol'" wagon was, and still is, stuck with automatics. Maybe I just haven't been looking hard enough. Or, it might be that I have too many non-vehicular projects going. fs Keep on with your 405s; lookin' good.
  4. Congratulations on swapping real seat belts for those $%^^&*& automatic belts. I've had real 3-point belts in my Mi16s forever, but haven't found a set of real belts for my S wagon. So...first question - where did you get your real belts for your wagon? I've looked at a few online belt sellers but their belts are too long for 405 front seats. (I'm not sure WHY they won't sell belts longer than a stated length for a prospective buyer's car). Second question - Peugeot factory manuals I have state a particular brand for 15-year lubricant for the track on the automatic belt. Not willing to search European dealers for that lubricant, I'm wondering what sort of lubricant it is (powdered graphite, 10W15, WD-40, sewing machine oil, bearing grease, etc.). The automatic belt in my wagon is pretty sluggish so I'd like to lube it up a bit but I don't know what sort of lube is suggested. fs
