Question about 1989 Peugeot 405

Open Question

Gents/Ladies, my diesel Peugeot 205 makes a grinding sound on full lock (both ways), & I would like to know what is causing this. I shall try as best as possible to list the symptoms. Firstly, the car has PAS & has done 75000 miles. Apart from the noise it is in fairly good condition & there is no undue or odd wear on the tyres & the car behaves as it should through bends & over bumps - no wander or obvious clunks. The noise only appears when full lock is applied & it is possible to keep turning the steering wheel even though full lock has been reached! Vibration can be felt at this point. A rudimentary examination of the roadwheels revealed no undue fore/aft movement & turning them by hand was noise free. Jacking up the car & turning the steering throughout its full travel saw no improvement either. My main questions to you Gents/Ladies, are: Why doesn't the steering 'stop' at full lock? Could it be play in the track rod ends & steering rack? Or could it be worn outer CV joints causing the racket? Or both? Or something I haven't thought of? The power steering fluid is topped up & the car got a new MOT last month. No gaiters are split & there is no evidence of grease/fluid loss. I don't really want to drive the car until I know whether this could be dangerous. Thanks, Boo. PS, it's a 205 on a K plate not 405.

When I turn or go over a dip in the road it makes a pop and grinding noise

I would say it sounds like cv joints need replacing.also check bushes and ball joints for play. If ok turn steering on full lock both ways.start with full lock on right turn pull away slowly if you get knocking noise you will know it's that side is worn and then do same on left turn on full lock.

How to change timing belt peugeot 205 1.9 Diesel

It is a bit fiddly (your local library will get a Haynes manual in for you) you need decent tools, Halfords or Stanley will do, Argos or B+Q will not! you need a length of 10mm or 3/8 rod about a foot long to lock the crank. get back to me when you are ready and I will write more. email me at citroenchrisATmacDOTcom (I write it that way to stop spam)

On a Peugeot 205 diesel (1995) the preheater light is not coming on on the dashborard and appears the plugs are also not being heated, so the car will not start. Can you please advise what is likely to be...

I would personaly say the glow plugs are the issue. Part of the system has a coil that is more than likely burnt out. Look at the complete sysytem with a test light. If you have any questions please ask.
