The anti pollution fault is a royal PITA. I tried everything to get rid of it. It's common as muck with these things. Too much town driving makes the valves stick open a tiny amount, so the seals may need replacing. I swapped out the a/f sensors, used valve cleaner, flushed the oil, bloody everything, nothing. Just put up with it. Hated that car.

Hi all,
Purchased this car about 2 months ago for my girlfriend.

I'm a bit of a car guy and have tinkered but this is the first time trying one of these French cars.

Onto the bad stuff.
The airbag light comes on intermittently. After a quick Google tells me the connector under the seat or the harness inside the steering.
The connector under the seat has been removed and soldered by a previous owner.

There is a pollution fault that also pops up intermittently. I'd assume this is because the previous owner replaced the original exhaust with something terrible. Need to get it on the hoist and have a look.

It doesn't like cold mornings. Hunting idle and sometimes goes into limp home mode.

There are also other hideous aesthetic modifications that will be fixed. (Red mud flaps, red grill on the bonnet, red calipers)

Any suggestions on where to get it scanned in Hamilton? Or suggestions on which scan tool/software to get.

They have very reasonable shipping rates.
For performance parts, demon tweeks have the usual upgrade parts
I could be interested in a bonnet depending on how it looks, my red 106 could do with a new one at some point in time.

Ok thanks, yes been scouring that site already. Is it worth exploring Yousend or just what they quote? Might have a dig around for exchange rates too.
Any performance type parts sites of recommendations?

Yeah I have a spare bonnet now. A couple small dints but straight. I have no need for it(hopefully) if anyone wants it.

Keen to get this thing up and running now...

Nah no bonnets sold. Do you have a spare bonnet?
The door I have is red, send me a PM if you are keen.
For parts, 106parts.com is your best friend for cheap genuine Peugeot parts, they just about have everything you need, use the 10% discount code too.

I'm happy I got the chance to get this back on the road. I believe its savable. Kinda happy its not being used as a parts car.

I also got the speedo cable with this, he never got around to installing it, so that's a first job to do. I also saw a bit of glass evidence in the back so not surprised there either. Did you also sell him a bonnet?

Is yer door white? I might take you up on that, I kind of want to keep the paint as original as possible. for now.  If you have any other parts tips/suppliers/upgrades feel free to share, will be needing some very soon.
