    Hi all,

    I currently own a 205 GR 1.4 (1992) and it's been having some issues. The father in law has had a look and has diagnosed an issue with the throttle body/potentiometer. The car over-revs when idling and occasionally cuts out. Other than that, it's a nice little car.

    The two photos attached show what is suspected to be the issue, however, as I'm not much of a car enthusiast I couldn't say for sure. The worn tracks (first picture) have been rubbed with graphite in an attempt to fill in where it is worn and this seems to work for a short period. The second photo shows what I suspect to be a very, VERY temporary fix.

    If anyone can suggest where I can get hold of the above parts for replacement, that'd be great. Or, if someone happens to have the same model car for sale I'd be interested in discussing a purchase price.

    Thanks in advance,
