306 1.8 16v Cabriolet

Post by Simon on Thu 22 Dec 2011, 05:52

I bought this last month with the idea to replace/fix/repair the engine/starting fault give it a really good clean up and sell it on for about 800-1000 getting a quick sale BUT having got the car home, charging the battery and doing the 1st thing you do with a cabby try the hood, i was shocked to find it didnt work, as i'd asked the previous owner 3-4 times about the hood working off the button and everytime he replied YES it works great, so i just pushed the car in the shed and left it on charge thinking maybe there wasnt enough V in the battery, but i then found there are parts missing to operate the hood, which has left me thinking if he's lied to me about that what else has he lied about so.............

Up for sale in as complete state as i bought it but with an honnest advert is

Peugeot 306 1.8 16v
Mileage 72k
condition Average

The engine turns over but doesnt fire up, while turning over or if a door is opened the hazzard lights flash, the car doesnt have a remote fob to switch alarm off i think this is the problem here but i can not 100% say it is im just guessing, also the power steering pump is missing when i viewed the car i thought a new pump would only cost 10-20 on the bay but on getting the car home i found the pump to have been removed by a chimp with a hacksaw cutting through the pipes so new pipes from pump to resevoir and pump to rack are needed.

Interior is in good condion half leather cloth leaf patern (same as 306 XSI/meridian) leather is good with only very slight ware on drivers bolster IMO these are worth 120+

Electric windows both passenger side 1's work but are slow drivers door motor makes a noise but glass doesnt move (I havent removed door card to see why) drivers rear went down fine a bit slow but it went down but now wont go up Sad

Rear screen is damaged and will need replacing as its holed these are on ebay for 85-90

Hood is in excellent condion previous owner says it was replaced just before he bought the car and its condition doesnt make him out to be a liar (on this 1 thing) IMO this on its own is worth 150+

Cyclones with 4 good 195/55/15 tyres all in great condition but will need to have the locking bolts knocked off as there isnt a key IMO these in this condition are worth 180+

Dents on both rear wings drivers a big dent but i think would pop out and not be that noticable passengers 2 small dents by the aerial doubt these would pop out though and on drivers front wing i would fit a new wing bonnet has been key'd and a very poor effort to fix has been made which i think has made it look worse than if it was just left









Last pic shows the hood storage compartment you can see the bracket that the ram bolts to to lift the cover is missing and that is why it doesnt work, however i cant guarantee that a motor or ecu (for hood) isnt also needed

For the whole car im going to put an asking price of 450 this is what i've paid out anything less and i will break it from just the few tidy parts i've listed above (wheels, seats & hood) that money could be made back plus there is the engine/brakes/suspension/hood ecu/motor etc etc etc so at that price a small profit could be made if broken
