SOURCE: power window not working, motor and electric good, whats wrong?

Well either the gears aunt lined up correctly or the motor old and tired. Doesn't have enough power/torque to spin gears. might just need a new motor.

SOURCE: transmission passing gear keep either getting

this could be relative to many things, however you should check a few things before asessing the possibilities. When you put the truck in gear from park, Drive (overdrive) Should be the third notch you come to. so your in park, pull down clunk you're in reverse, clunk you're in neutral, clunk, now you are in drive. If you dont feel/ hear four notches/ clunks, you should be in overdrive. If you take off and it over revs 1st ( you shouldn't see more than 15 mph before it shifts on a stock transmission unless your flooring it and taking off fast) and then hard shifts to second gear, progresses to third gear normally, but wont progress into overdrive, it may be related to your vaccum advance, your shift linkage, or even possibly your timing. From the sounds of it, I would say vaccum advance is the likely cause, if it is otherwise in stock condition. If this is the case it could be as simple as reconnecting a vacum hose to the distributor. Should be to the left hand side of the cap, between the cap and intake manifold as you are looking at the firewall.

SOURCE: gears stick

If your car is a manual gear change, your clutch may need adjusting or repair or the gearbox oil may need changing.
If your car is an auto check to see if you are using the correct transmission fluid , Peugeot autos do not use normal ATF and will fail if the correct fluid is not used.
Hope this helps Marshall

Hi recently very cold weather gear box froze!! any way to stop this happening

you do not mention if automatic or manual so I will give you freezing points for atf and gear oil
the freezing point of atf oil used in automatic transmissions is -62.5 degrees F so unless the oil is very old and is contaminated with water the oil would not be frozen
gear oil(Shell used in diffs and gear boxes 68 grade ) has a pour point of-24 degrees c
however as a petroleum product, all types of non-synthetic oil will not freeze solid
if you mean that the gear selection was impossible then it may be tolerances that are affected by the cold
how to stop it--- possible to house the car in an insulated garage with a simple bar heater operating to keep the room above freezing point

Not a Peugeot expert, but there should be a safety switch to keep you from cranking the engine in gear.

The drivers window on my mercedes E200 is getting stuck when it gets half way up. The window looks like it is falling forward but it looks like it is the houseing unit. Anyone come across this before and...

You don't need to go to a Merc dealer, take out the panel and have a close look at the window mechanism, it might have just pop out from the rail, if not you can get a mechanism in a motor parts shop (non genuine) with a 12 months warranty, and fit it by yourself or with some help.

How to repairdriver side window motor for a 1998

Assuming the window motor runs BUT doesn't move glass.......carefully remove the door trim. unhook electrical connectors,remove water shield plastic, access inside the door and locate motor,( pushing glass up if required) on the inner panel locate #3 DIMPLE marks, this is where the motor bolts are at...use a drill and drill thru slowly (drill for the size of socket you have).....CAUTION: place a block/bar/etc to keep the window from falling down and cutting your arm off when the motor is removed.... Now with the motor out, remove the cover at the gear,clean and remove the plastic gears, there are 3 round inserts (may be broken now) that needs to be replaced..purchase at your local parts store...kragen/napa/etc.... reverse steps to assemble...hope this helps careful...GL

Gear stuck in neutral

check linkage bars from shifter to transmission you will find 2 of them generally what happens is that the ball or pivot gets worn and ends up falling off.
