renovating 1997 executive

Post by partsman on Tue May 24, 2016 5:44 pm

Hi all , long time member but havnt contributed much. My van failed the mot yesterday with the dreaded worm so i have to strip apart the engine bay in order to get to the rust. Im thinking that this will be a long term project as i want to replace all of the suspension on the front as well as all the ball joints and stuff like subframe and anti-roll bar (allready got most of the parts and stripped and powder coated them in readiness).what confuses me though is what model of parts i should be buying, i think the van is a 230L but i dont know what payload weight it would come under, can any one help.

I'm sure that our '95 Exec was designated a 350 MWB on the V5 confused3

Most motor factor and main agents should only need you reg no to access a daterbase that hold all the base van information.

First, register on this site:
http://public.servicebox.peugeot.com/pages/index.jsp
It's for trade only so it's up to you how you go about it.
Use your VIN number to find the correct parts for your van. Once you have the manufacturer's part number, you can use this site:
http://www.findpart.org/
To find the part from other manufacturers - Quinten Hazel, Mintex etc. etc... or from your local auto factors.
Using your registration number is not always an accurate way of identifying your vehicle if its a campervan / motorhome.
