The Peugeot 406 Saloon was introduced into the UK in early 1996. At its launch, the 406 was offered with a choice of 1.6 (1580cc -not available in the UK), 1.8 (1761 cc) and 2.0 litre (1998cc) petrol engines or a 1.9 litre (1905cc) turbo diesel engine. In the summer of 1996, a 2.0 litre petrol turbo model was introduced, also a new 2.1 litre (2088cc) turbo diesel engine was introduced into the range with the new diesel engine being a 12-valve version of the XUD engine which has also been used in other Peugeot/Citroen vehicles. In early 1997, Peugeot introduced an Estate model, and also introduced the V6 petrol engine into the range.

This manual covers the facelifted models introduced in March 1999 which were available with the 1.8 litre (1761cc) petrol engine used in tho earlier models. New engines include 1.8 litre (1749cc) and the 2.0 litre (1997cc) petrol engines. The new diesel engines are 2.0 litre (1997cc) and 2.2 litre (2179cc).

The engines fitted to the facelift 406 range are all versions of the well-proven units which have appeared in many Peugeot/CitroSn vehicles over the years. The engines are based from the XU engine series, the petrol engines are of four-cylinder double overhead camshaft design. The 2.0 litre diesel engine is a single overhead camshaft 8-valve unit and the 2.2 litre diesel is a double overhead camshaft 16-valve unit.

The engine is mounted transversely at the front of vehicle, with the transmission mounted on its left-hand end. All engines are fitted with a manual transmission as standard (automatic transmission is available on certain engines). All models have fully-independent front and rear suspension arrangements incorporating shock absorbers and coil springs.

A wide range of standard and optional equipment is available within the range to suit most tastes, including central locking, electric windows and front and side airbags. An air conditioning system Is available on all models.
Provided that regular servicing is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, the vehicle should prove reliable and very economical. The engine compartment is well-designed, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible.

Your Peugeot 406 manual

The aim of this manual is to help you get the best value from your vehicle. It can do so in several ways. It can help you decide what work must be done (even should you choose to get it done by a garage). It will also provide information on routine maintenance and servicing, and give a logical course of action and diagnosis when random faults occur.

However, it is hoped that you will use the manual by tackling the work yourself. On simpler jobs it may even be quicker than booking the car into a garage and going there twice, to leave and collect it. Perhaps most important, a lot of money can be saved by avoiding the costs a garage must charge to cover its labour and overheads.

The manual has drawings and descriptions to show the function of the various components so that their layout can be understood. Tasks are described and photographed in a clear step-by-step sequence. References to the ’left’ and ‘right’ of the vehicle are in the sense of a person in the dnver’s seat facing forward.
