Answer this question

TL, Essex

Peugeot 107

My boyfriend has told me that you need to push your foot down on the clutch to make the car start. However I have had no problem starting it. Is he right?

Answers

You are right in that the car will start without putting your foot on the clutch - any regular manual car won't need the clutch to be pressed in order to start the engine. However, it is always recommended that you do hold down the clutch while turning the engine on because, on the off chance that the car is in gear without the brake on, holding down the clutch will stop the car from shooting forward (or backward!) before you are ready to drive.

Answer this question

Peter, England

Peugeot 407 SW 2006

My Peugeot 407 SW’s multifunction display fades after 5 minutes of driving so you cannot read the display. It works initially. What might be the problem/solution?

Answers

Hi, I have found out how to do this from a helpful person. Firstly remove a battery terminal, undo the two screws on the inside edge of door panel, remove rubber grip inside door pull assembly to find the third fixing screw remove this, using a small tyre lever or large screw driver begin to work all the way round the door carefully prizing off the inner panel, there is a hooked bracket to lift this off in the corner near the mirror. Unplug and remove the mirror/window switches. remove door panel, lay to one side. Remove plug from socket of old mirror. Tie a cord to this. Using a number 13 mm extended socket, or box spanner remove the nut from the broken mirror and carefully remove it, tie the plug of the new mirror to the cord & pull through gently, fit the grommet & plug in the new plug to socket, offer up the new mirror fit the nut with the 13mm tool tighten nut, refit the inner door panel as before, re-connect battery, job done, and a small fortune saved in the garage, good luck Alan Glister from Norfolk

Wrong answer I think Peter from England

Hi, unfortunately early multiscreen LCD 2005 2006 models have a cheap and cheerful display. The screen is below the vents and a lot of heat gathers which weakens the solder on connections in unit and you end up with a failed screen. The only option is new or good second hand 120 euro; dealer will try 300 plus fitting and it has to be reset by dealer. Newer LCD are better Don O Neill from Cheshire

Mine started to do this and then a Anti Pollution System failure popped up - turns out the timing belt and water pump needed replacing but it highlighted that the turbo oil feed pipe was leaking and had to be replaced. Had it back 2 days and now the EMU is flashing up an incomplete roof manoeuvre warning (which it can't do as the screen isn't in place) - back into the garage for the next problem to be diagnosed.

Hi June I had exactly same problem and was flasher relay. Open glove box and behind it you will see a flap hanging down. Behind it you will see a grey plastic relay above the fuses. Carefully pull it out and take to a good car shop. Mine cost £12.99 and indicators worked straight away. Common fault apparently. Rang round a few places and all wanted me to book in for a full diagnostic. Funny how an old bloke running a shop can offer free advice that a highly trained mechanic tells me could be a big job which ultimately costs me £££££££££ to find out it was the relay.

Peugeot 207 CC 2008

We have a Peugeot 207 CC convertible but when the roof is on there is a noisy rattle/ knocking coming from the boot area behind the driver`s seat. We have had new boot struts fitted, but the problem persists. Any suggestions as to the problem?

Answers

I have the same. Open your boot and at the back you will see a flat-ish black plastic bar facing you, running across the boot as part of the roof mechanism. There’s 2 screws in this bar, and my money is on the one on the right being loose. Tighten it and job sorted. It will come loose again, and you will have to keep tightening it, but at least it’ll stop the rattle for a bit Kat from Lancashire

Hi, buy some lock tight thread locker from Halfords, this will save the repeated problem, and you can still undo the screw/bolt when needed a j from England

I have fixed my roof rattle with a piece of sponge about the size of a large eraser. On the top of the rear glass where it joins with the roof section you will see a black protrusion, as the two sections come together the protrusion slides into a hole on the roof section to lock both sections together. As the roof is closing, pause when the rear glass and roof sections are about 2 inches apart. Hold the sponge between the protrusion and then continue to close the roof, ensuring you fingers stay clear. The black protrusion will push the sponge into the hole. The sponge acts as a damper and has totally eliminated the roof rattle. When I lower roof I remove the sponge and repeat eact time I close it. trevor from Armagh

Your power steering is electric. It is very rare for the power steering pump to fail, its is however very common for the electrical feed on the back of the ignition switch to burn out the contacts, Peugeot will sell you a complete ignition switch ( ouch ) You can buyr the electrical connecetor assy from ebay for around £8. Peugeot now sell the connector block on its own as well but i dont know how much. It can be done with out having to take of the steering wheel. you need a competent mechanic to do it.

My Peugeot 407 has an ABS + Esp warning on the dashboard. According to the manual this won’t affect the brakes. Any ideas?

Answers

Yes, it will have it seen to. The most common fault is the clutch switch or the break sensor. Both quite cheap to repair Anton Pug from South Africa

Have a diagnostic check done in most cases it’s normally a damaged or failed abs sensor lead but theres 1 sensor fitted to each wheel so best to find out which one has failed and replace one instead of all 4 Terry Miller from Cardiff

I have the same problem on mine, the diagnostic check came up with a faulty pre heat control unit, still trying to find out if this is correct and where it is on my car Kevin Firth from Powys

It will NOT affect your braking performance, I had exactly the same problem for months and brakes were as sharp as ever. The fault was with the ABS sensor which is coupled with the ESP. You need to get sensor replaced, mine cost a few hundred pounds (sterling). If either of these lights are on during an MOT it is an instant failure Steve M from Neath Port Talbot

mine had the same problem. get a diagnostic check and that will tell you which ABS sensor is faulty. mine was one of the front ones, i bought a brand new one from Euro car parts for £22 +vat. easy to fit problem solved. Jason Catterall from England

I went to get in my Peugeot Partner Combi 2-litre HDI recenly after it not being driven for a couple of weeks. The central locking is not unlocking doors so I had to get in manually. The car started OK but doors still the same from the c/lock dash button. Did a BSI reset as per manufacturers instructions. Still not working correctly, the back sliding doors will lock from the button, the drivers internal push down button on the door or the key fob. The front doors will not and neither will the rear hatch. Once locked you cannot unlock back doors except by doing it manually from the inside. All other BSI functions working correctly. When locking or unlocking with the fob the lights behave normally. Do you think this is a BSI problem and if so any idea on the costs of them? Thanks.

When I start my car the mirrors have stopped folding out into their driving position, I have tried to manually move them ou tbut they are locked rigid, so driving with no mirrors at the moment, can anyone advise please?

Answers

Sorry my car mirrors dont fold in but i suggest checking your hand-book and identify where the fuse is for your mirrors. I know my peug 307 sw has 2 fuse compartments. 1 is in the glove box left hand side. and the other is under the bonnet. Hope this helps. dj kwik fit from Dumfries and Galloway

Have you tried the button that moves the lens make sure it in the middle and slide it toward the rear of the car if this works it my reset your if not then it's. The fuse inside the car London prudence from Kent

When I close the passenger door my Peugeot 207 automatically locks. How can I switch this off?

Answers

You have lock button on your 207 dashboard. Press and hold it for few seconds until you here click, that solves your problem, the doors will not lock automatically anymore Vlada car from Serbia

Please does anyone have a solution to this problem? Just for clarity, this is not the drive away auto locking that people are giving a solution to, that is not a fault but having the car completely lock itself when you close the passenger door " is". I am thinking it is the passenger door latch/cdl motor assembly. Has anyone actually solved this by replacing that part? patto from Berkshire

My Peugeot 308 SW`s seatbelt warning alarm keeps going off even when noone is sitting in the seats. This only happens with the three seats in the back of the car. If I have every seat occupied and everyone fastened in it also does it then. Any ideas why?

Answers

Did you find any resolution to this problem? Have exactly the same problem myself and garage can’t come up with a diagnosis or solution... It’s driving us crazy... Lesley G from Ayrshire

I also have this problem on my 308SW. First happened about 3 months ago - hardly ever use the rear seats - and no one sitting in the rear at the time. First one sensor went off - to stop I fastened seat belt and it was fine then after a couple of days the next sensor started giving problems ended up fastening all the seat belts. Then after week or so they started to go off again even with the belts fastened. After removing the seats and putting them back in to see if this cleared the problem booked the car in for a diagnostics check but before putting in I had to unfasten all the belts and amazingly all was fine so cancelled the diagnostics. OK for over a month then started up again. Currently I have two belts fastened and one not and have again got the car booked in. Extemely annoying fault. Did you get a solution?. What’s the problem and how do I fix it? (1.7cdti) Graham Tennant from Renfrewshire

Rear seat belt problem drove me mad as there seemed to be no rhyme nor reason for the alarm to keep going off. After a month of it with no ideas from various garages I took out the middle row of seats pulled up the carpet and disconnected the sensors from the wiring loom. Trouble is I can hear the wife nagging again now!! Jason from Lincolnshire

Mine started doing this today (20/2/13). If you take the seats out, detach the plastic trim from in front of, and behind the seats, and lift out the carpet panel, you will see a black plastic strip with a connector at the near side end. Disconnect the plug to disable the system. It’s less frustrating to disable the system and check any passenger’s have done up their seat belts then to try and sort out a random problem that I doubt will show up in a diagnostic check and will probably be expensive to repair. I suspect the fault is where the plug connects to the flexible PCM in the plastic ’strip’ rather than the wiring... Laurence from Dorset

My Peugeot garage had the car when the alarm was being issued, but said they couldn’t find the fault! All three seats started alarming yesterday (05/03/13) even though the seat belts were connected. Garage can’t book my car in till next week - and when I asked them to disable the alarm in the meantime, they said they couldn’t. Something to do with Europe regulations. Anyway, thanks to this helpful post I have now successfully disabled the alarm. Note - you only have to take off the front plastic strip - and to do so you just need a small screwdriver to release the clips over the metal bar. If Peugeot find the real reason for the problem, I will post here too. THANK YOU! Tony from Sussex

I have had the intermittent seat belt fault with 2 of the three rear seats in my 308 SW. After two visits to the Peugeot garage (first time said they couldn’t find anything wrong) they now say it needs a seat belt pickup, apparently a bar with sensors and transmitters, fitted. The quoted price £128. Asked if they could disconnect and they said no as may cause other faults. After reading this I will be disconnecting it myself. There is no guarantee that after being replaced the same fault won’t develop! Rather not waste my money CLC from England

I wish I had read this forum before I booked my car in - it is now in the garage for the 4th time. I have paid to have one seat belt stalk replaced (and labour!). Then it was reccomended that I replaced the ariel base unit (after the garage spoke with Peugeot in France). I also did this. I’m over £300 out of pocket and it hasn’t resolved the problem. The seat belts alarmed the day after I got the ariel base unit fited and now the seats don’t alarm when my passengers don’t put their seat belts on. So frustrating... Diane Hedlund from Mid-Lothian (Edinburghshire)

My wife has this problem with her Peugeot 308 SW, the rear seat belt alarms keep going off. I have read the above posts but cannot find the correct plastic trim to remove? Could some one please a little clearer and explain how to locate and remove this trim to get at the connector? Mark Smith from Berkshire

Thank you so much for your answers, this problem has been driving me mad. On my 308 under the nearside rear seat, lift the carpet, remove plastic cover and slide the connection apart. No alarms, but peace at last. Well done all. Norm from Sussex

Had the same problem. Warning light stayed on along with the very loud alarm beeping even if nobody was sat in the seat. Tried taking the seats out as some have suggested and it made no difference. Took the car to my local garage. Using WD 40 with the plastic arm attached to the canister, the mechanic sprayed a liberal amount into the offending seat belt connector. He then clicked the seat belt in out a number of times and then the warning light went off. So far no alarm either. He then did the same for each seat belt just to be sure. He thinks the fault is caused by poor seat belt connector contacts. I’m assuming it’s my kids dropping god knows what food/liquid into the seat belt connectors. If any of you have kids/messy people, it might be worth a go. Hope this helps Chris from Caerphilly

Thank goodness for this web-site my rear seat belt alarms have been driving me and everyone else in the car nuts for months now. I have tried the seats up, down in and out of the car I shall try all the options mentioned here and keep my fingers crossed. Paul from Suffolk

At last, I found somebody else who suffers from this crazy faulty beeping in Peugeot 308 SW’s. I live in Turkey and have one 2009 model 308 SW, it was very good, in the beginning, but then suddenly it started beeping randomly. It is very same problem I have, one of the rear seat belt alarms goes off even when nobody sits on it. I asked this stupid problem many times to local service stations around, but no solution came out. But what I have really realised is this problem goes off when the weather is particularly wet or rainy as well as during a couple of days after it rained or snowed, in my opinion. For example in summer when the climate is relatively dry there is no such problem ever. But especially in winter it goes crazy. I think it is really connected to the humidity level at medium. I am really curious about your experiences in summer and winter - has anybody noticed this difference yet? Enbiya Türedi from Turkey

I had exactly the same problem with the intermittent rear belt alarm going off on my Peugeot 308 SW. The alarm was completely random and would sound with/without someone in the seats and with/without belts. As I commute every day this was doing my nut. After various failed fixes I read this thread and I followed Tony's advice and removed the three rear seats; popped out the plastic clips over the metal bar with a screwdriver; took the carpet up; located sensor connection on nearside (ie. passenger side) and disconnected it. I put the carpet back down, clips on, seats back and sanity restored, for free!Iain from City of Edinburgh

Finally, others with the same problem as me! This has been happening with my Peugeot 308 SW for over a year now. It has been in the garage 4 times. (Thankfully Peugeot paid for last 3 visits). We have been without the bleeping for a few months but lo and behold, it has started again! I have always said it's the rubbish seat belt connectors so will definitely be trying the WD40 trick or failing that disconnecting the lot. I was told by the garage that if it is disconnected the car may fail its MOT, but I think I'll just reconnect it before the test! Such a stupid problem for quite a decent car! Rachel from Cornwall

Just got my 308 four days ago and side lights are on all pf the time. I can`t find how to turn these off in the manual, just wondering if they are supposed to be on all of the time and if not how do I get them to turn off?

Answers

Is it just your front lights? If this is the case they are daytime running lights. Now a legal requirement on all new uk cars. You can turn them off, using the menu button on the stereo scroll through to find "vehicle parameters" vehicle lighting should be in there somewhere. However for safety I would leave them on. 1811 from South Yorkshire

Hi, my 206 has a problem, as soon as it starts the temp gauge shoots straight to the top and stop light shows. I have replaced 2 relays, engine temp sensor and coolant temp sensor but it`s still doing it. If I erase codes the temp gauge goes to zero for a few seconds then shoots straight back up. Any help please?

Try starting the engine with the coolant lid off (cold engine obviously) then start and run the engine until hot and watch for any bubbles we emerging from the pod this could be the cause it worked with mine 1.4 sw saam from Staffordshire

Peugeot 307

Just bought a used 307 (80k miles) and it moves off very slow, it judders when attempting to move off with just the clutch and creaks when reversing, when I've moved off I have no issues moving in between gears and everything else on the car is fine.

Answers

My 307 does this and I have been told that if there is/has been any oil/grease getting on to the clutch it will cause those kind of symptoms, as the clutch slips on the oil/grease causing the judder. DON`T take my word for this but apparently you can put the car in high gear and ride the clutch for a bit to burn any rubbish off, like I say don`t take my word for that though. My clutch was replaced about 6 months ago and as it was a cheap car I put in a national 3 piece clutch kit. Valeo is the correct clutch for the car though so I`m not sure if my cheaper option is the cause of this judder? If you do need to replace the clutch on it and have to pay someone to do it at any time then shop around and don`t pay a lot over £200 for the job, as a Valeo kit for 1.6 petrol 03 plate (not dual mass, thankfully) is around £80 quid and it`s a 2 to 3 hour job for a mechanic with ramps etc. m.d from Devon
