Hello Sir,
One of my Uncles still has an immaculate Peugeot 309 which has done around 42000 kms. As usual he is looking for a dashboard panel as the one he has developed a few cracks courtesy Indian Summer. Also he has a problem with the starter. The vehicle fires up in the first crank when in cold, but when the car has been heated up the starter just does not crank. I suspect that it might be the starter's bushes which warrants a replacement. The starter is of Lucas make and any help in guiding them to nearest reliable lucas service station should be good.

Would you have any knowledge of good service stations/mecahics in Bangalore who can work on it?

The horn at the end of the indicator stalk was quite common in the old Mahindra Jeeps too. CJ500 jeeps with the Peugeot engines!

Hi,
Both the problems came imminent with a 309.Even my 309 has the same problem.
You can reach out fellow team Bhpian Pavan Kadam.He is a very helpful person and will give you good leads in Bangalore as he restores old cars.
Best Wishes.
