Hi, My 406 electric door mirrors that move around quite every time I switch on or off the ignition. Only right side never end up in the correct programmed place and need to be repositioned. Seat positioning isn't affected. Right mirror and its memory module were tries interchanged with other, but problems disappear for a while, and come back again. Does anyone give suggestion? Thanks.

My 406 dashboard MFD display gives false temperature readout, indicating that it's 10 or 15 degrees below freezing, when the outside temperature is mild. Is the fault with the MFD unit, or is there a sensor somewhere else that's the problem?

The immobiliser light came on and it was not able to start. Fitted a new battery, still won`t start, checked keys no difference. The message that comes up now says: "changing to power save mode", still won`t start'. It has been suggested I go to main dealer to get the code to restart it but no guarantee it will start and the code will cost £25 and £70 labour to insert the code plus the cost of getting vehicle to the garage. Friend of family got some fuel in a can just before it stopped, could it be he put in unleaded not diesel? Any way of tell telling that this is the problem?

i know hydraulic clutches aren't adjustable but has anyone any suggestions or "bodges" to lower the height of the clutch pedal on my 406 hdi 90 [2004]? its stupidly high and the bite is right at the top so i tend to slip it badly as i pull away or change gear to the point that i tend to change without the clutch once rolling - a bit wearing on the gearbox im guessing im thinking something like moving the position of the slave cylinder on the bell housing or bending /lengthening an actuator in some way? im desperate!
