    More to the point, is anyone out there NOT having problems with the

    Electric sliding doors, windscreen leaks, door locks, PAF, and what a
    pain to work on the engine.

    I have the Citroen C8 (same car) and it has the same electric door
    problem, especially the offside door
    dead locks don't work, rear wash wipe has stopped working (the water jet
    not the wiper)
    and never mind the engine, have you tried the simple (NOT) task of
    changing a headlight bulb ?

    IMO the old 806/Citroen Synergie was better built, had a tougher
    interior and was way more reliable

    just fixed to rear wash wipe, for future reference the pipe inside the
    offside rear pillar has a push fitting that can come apart... as mine
    had /c;

  5. The 806 rides like a proper Peugeot. The 807 could have been built by
    anyone - the suspension and damper settings were probably signed off for
    production by someone from Fiat :-(

    There is now a modified set of contacts for the sliding door so that the
    thing works properly after a couple of wipes with a damp dog which is a
    considerable improvement.

    A good dealer can modify the rear wiper so that it doesn't miss out the
    centre of the rear window.

    There is an interesting thing going on with the tyres though: I called in
    at my dealers to complain that the 15" Pirellis were wearing out a bit quick
    and apparently there is a problem concerning alignment at the rear on some
    cars and mine is booked in for checking next week. For some strange reason
    16" wheels and Michelin tyres are involved in the cure - under warranty of

    we've had a problem with front tyres wearing on the outside, the
    tracking was towing in by 2 degrees so the garage set it to tow out
    slightly (according to the mechanic FWD cars should tow out slightly).
    I'll be keeping an eye on them to see if they still wear unevenly (on
    the inside)
    the rear tyres are wearing evenly but I think on the quick side
    we were running 15" Michelins all round, have just replaced the front
    with a cheaper make (and will on the back) to see if there's any
