    1998 306 d'turbo
    bought new clutch cable. Really a bitch to fit as the turbo and AC get in
    the way plus the hole in the bulk head is behind the servo.
    Fitted it to the gearbox end and the pedal is still on the floor. Pull pedal
    up and cable seems about 4 inches too long and gearbox. Rang dealer who siad
    it was the right cable for the build code etc
    Any ideas?

  2. Maybe theres something to do with the routing of the cable; maybe theres
    something it needs to go through somewhere you didnt know; only a

    Yep, it's a real pain to fit even on non-AC models but on the AC
    models it's a nightmare. I ended up just putting the old cable back on
    my car and got Peugeot to change it. They did it while I waited and
    even the mechanic there struggled.

    Right, just fully read your post now. Check the clutch cable because
    there are two types. When I took my clutch cable to Peugeot to fit
    they also claimed it was the wrong one and ordered another. When that
    cable came in it turned out to be the wrong one and my one was right.
    If you can take the clutch cable out, just place it against the
    original and you'll know straight away.

    Also, did you seat the rubber grommet properly into the bulkhead? That
    may be your problem.

  6. that's typical mate; and its not just the motor trades either; i had a guy
    coming to replace my hard drive, last year, he came on time and with a
    little box along with his tools, he started by shutting the PC down then
    opened up the tower unit after unpluging all the cables, got the hard drive
    out, and picked up the box he'd brough with him to get the new hard drive;
    opened it and found it was a kettle element!!
    I was mad! i had waited two weeks for the guy to do the job, and it took
    another week till he got the right part!!
    It was the right box, all the descriptions were right, all printed on the
    box, but some numpty had put the wrong item in the box!!
    All the same i'm sorry this happened to you!
    regards, mark.
