Sometimes the topnut works loose enough for the adjusting nut to come loose and then everything is loose. What usually happens though is that the bearings in the cages wear into the cups and you need a new headset. They come in various sizes and types so you will either have to take the bike in or take all the parts from your headset in to get a replacement. You should try backing the topnut off some more and then tightening the adjusting nut down as much as you need to remove the play and still not have any friction while your steering and then tighten the topnut back down. It will require a thin walled bicycle wrench the correct size to hold the adjusting nut in position so that you don't tighten it further while you are tightening the topnut with a second suitably sized wrench. Hope this helps.

Peugeot bicycle serial #604791 - what year is it?

Google "Peugot serial number" and do your own research. Nobody here is going to be able to help you any better than that. The year, frankly, is not that important. If it's a collectible bike the model is what's important, and that can only be determined by the original equipment on it. For more info see my tip:
How to determine the year value etc of your bicycle

Hi my freind has a peugeot 206 estate it is loosing water no leaks that i can see anywhere can anybody help pls many thanks jim

Losing water, you mean coolant right? If so and you have had the cooling system pressure tested and no leaks are present on the outside of the engine then you most likely have a leaking cylinder head gasket.

Assembly instructions

The brand would be helpful.
A Note: When you are assembling the bicycle be sure you tighten the steering-head and the handlebar screws and bolts properly.
Loose parts in this location is one of the prime causes of wrecks.

One of my spokes on the non drive side of my rear Aksium wheel has come out of the hub because the space that secures the head of the spoke has warped.

Has the hole warped, or worn?
Either way, you will have trouble with a standard size spoke!

Ask you Bicycle shop dealer if he could sell you a spoke the next size larger in gauge, but the same length-- And can yo determine WHY the hub has warped?
Perhaps there is somethig else going on, that needs checking, too--
Maybe you had best show the problem to your Bicycle repair man...
