    L'Aventure Peugeot classic https://www.pieces-de-rechange-classic.com/fr/20-505 My "Adventure" in trying to get a correct Tie Rod end lead me to Peugeot Classic Parts. While they didn't have the tie rod either, they do have a lot of otherwise unavailable parts (Like Glass).
  2. Hay Rabin. You've referenced "vendors below" but I don't see anyone (might be a phone thing). That said, I too need a 5812.59.
  3. Sure. I must say for a 405 guy your collecting a lot of 505 stuff.
  4. Not in very great shape. Good for Man Cave. 15" x 22.5" 2 sided $15 includes postage (North America only)

    Part'z is Part'z

    Maybe one could develop a reference guide as to where we get parts for our cars going forward.
  6. 1) Jessie Dubarr is retiring 2) Ukit will retire 3) Brian Holm will retire 4) Myles of Western Hemisphere is still working So who else is left to get parts from? Speaking of Jessie DuBarr, here is his Peugeot Ebay auction link. https://www.ebay.com/sch/dubarr/m.html?_ipg=200&_sop=12&_rdc=1
  7. One owner base model European delivery with steel rims, no Sunroof or power windows. Interior and carpets good. Alternator and starter rebuilt and fresh battery and freshly serviced. BUY IT AND DRIVE IT FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TO ANYWHERE (Follow Mollie). Yes, paint faded and typical minor corner of windshield rust. NADA price guide says $4k high and $2.6k average and $1.7k low. Make offer but no it's not free and it's a good car. TELL YOUR FRIENDS Call Dono @ (310) 995-6709
  8. Thanks. It's good now but who knows.
  9. Deuce slowly began to ride and handle worse and worse. So I got under it but did not see or feel anything loose or leaking. Eventually I concluded that the right front strut was not dampening correctly. Inasmuch as the '87 ABS strut is not serviceable, like the earlier non ABS car, it was necessary to replace the whole strut. Being a bit of a gambler I found that Holms had a used one. Most would replace both but this right front strut had no signs of leaking and actually passed the bumper bounce test so I bought the one used strut. What I found was that the original strut worked correctly - except for the first 20% of compression travel from fully extended. Fully extended the piston would move up and down with little resistance but any compression beyond that it was functioning perfectly and remained dampening all the way to fully extended. Again there was no signs of leaking and having put 80k miles on it for a total of 148k miles it had not leaked out at some time earlier. The valve inside, I believe, had some kind of issue. I guess I must have been too aggressive on some speed bump somewhere. So Deuce is fixed but I share this as it's an unusual failure. You could have a shock valve fail or you can loose fluid but this was a partial valve failure. IMHO

    Catastrophic Peugeot Failure

    Hard to tell now as it squirted oil all over and even though it's never need oil added and never drips on the ground, it was usually wet there.
  11. ...and I hate it when that happens. Broke the power steering fitting that goes into the Ram Cylinder (pn 4011.16) because one of the rack bushings had perished. There was no issues with steering, alignment or noise that would have warned me. So, get under there and check out the bushings (pn 4059.07) before they break the pipes (pn 4020.E3 & E3). The pipes can be fabricated but they have double flares at both ends.

    505 Quick Reference Parts Manual

    There were 66 scans that needed 15 separate steps per page then the down loading of three PDF programs (cheaper doesn't mean easier).. Others that already have PDF and newer computers won't have as much trouble doing this as I did.

    505 Quick Reference Parts Manual

    This was a ton of work. PDF file of 85 MB. But it's done. I have other manuals but I'd rather mail them to you and let you scan and PDF'em Peugeot 505 Parts Manual.pdf

    505 Quick Reference Parts Manual

    I have a scanner but it doesn't give me an option to set as PDF. I've got a call into a friend that should know.
  15. Yikes, it's 75 pages. Can you spell tedious? I thought you could.
