My garaged car has mildew on the seats. How do I get rid of it?

"Hi. I have a 2004 Peugeot 206cc which has been stored in a garage over the winter months. Once a month I start the car, operate the electric roof etc and everything is fine. However, the seats, steering wheel and trim are covered in a thin coating of mildew. I have tried wiping it off, but it always returns. A friend suggested getting some white wine vinegar and diluting it with water to 50/50 and spraying the affected parts and then drying it off. Do you think this will work or, if not, what would you suggest? Thanks."
Mould has likely grown because of damp conditions and a warm interior. The weather has been switching from fairly cold to mild in the last few weeks so if it got at all damp inside then when it heated up during the day, mould will have started to grow. The first thing we'd recommend is moving the car into the sun if you haven't already, but make sure you wear a dust mask - mould is no joke and can make you quite sick depending on which type it is. Open all the windows and doors to air out the car next time it's a warm sunny day, which you need because mould can’t grow in dry conditions. Next, check anywhere else that there could be mould (carpets and flooring, in all the corners etc). If you plan to clean it yourself, you have to be very thorough and ensure that you're wearing a mask and gloves. You can use a toothbrush to break up larger mould clusters if there are any and a vacuum to suck up some of the rest, but make sure you throw away the vac bag or empty the canister immediately after. White vinegar is a good treatment for mould as it's acidic and will kill it, so mix a distilled white vinegar and water solution 70-80% vinegar) and put it in a spray bottle for the easiest application. Spray all the mouldy areas and then let it dry completely. Vacuum up what's left and ensure nothing is left damp. To prevent mould from coming back, get all possible leaks repaired to stop the interior from getting damp, look into getting a dehumidifier if damp is a regular issue too. If you have a garage for a dehumidifier - we like Meaco's products. We reviewed one on Honest John Kit, so you can have a read of that and make a decision from there once you've done some extra research:

Why is there an anti-pollution warning light on my car?

"I have a Peugeot 206 CC 2.0-litre Sport. I left it in gear when I got out of the car. When I started it again I forgot it was still in gear. Later, the engine management light came on and anti-pollution fault flashed up on the screen. Could the vibrations from starting it cause the sensors to react and cause the above?"
This warning light could relate to any number of faults. Fixing it could be a case of just cleaning or replacing the air filter, but you could also find that you need to replace a sensor. You'll need to get it checked out by a garage that can read the fault code and ideally has some experience of dealing with this issue. The car won't pass an MoT unless that warning light goes out.

Have I fitted the clutch plate on my Peugeot 206 CC incorrectly?

"I've just replaced a clutch kit on a 2004 Peugeot 206 CC. Is it possible to put the clutch plate in the wrong way? I've bled the hydraulic system and can see that the clutch is moving in and out but when I try to put it into gear the clutch area makes a sandpaper scratching noise and won't go into gear at all while the engine is running. When the engine is off, the the gears work without the clutch. What could the problem be?"
It sounds as though you may have fitted it incorrectly. The clutch plate should be fitted with the flat surface towards the flywheel (the springs towards the pressure plate).

Why can I only feel one gear change in my Peugeot 206?

"I've just bought a 2001 Peugeot 206 automatic for a little commuter car. It has only done 28,000 miles from new but I'm concerned about the rpm. When I go onto the motorway (70mph) the rpm is about 4200 and at 56 about 3200, which is using a lot of petrol. I can also only feel one gear change at around 35mph. Please advise."
It's a 4-speed automatic and it is not changing into 4th. Get it to a member of
