Mrs Jude Awdry, Buckinghamshire

Peugeot 308

Shortly after buying our Peugeot 308 direct from the dealer (it had been a demo model for 12 months) a telephone rang from what seemed like the glovebox. This happened 3 times in one day. We took everything out and could find nothing. We contacted the Peugeot dealer who said they knew nothing about it, nor did the technical people at Peugeot HQ. Silence for 3 years and now yesterday it did it again. It is extremely unnerving. Does anyone have a clue about this? And, no, we do not have Bluetooth.

Peugeot 308

My engine fault light is on and the on board computer says anti pollution. I have put a diagnostic machine on and it indicated a faulty cylinder coil which I changed. The fault is the same and the new coil made no difference. symptom's are miss firing, car goes to limp mode and the fan kicks in and remains on for a few minutes after the engine is switched off. I also checked the radiator hoses after a drive as I thought it mat be a thermostat problem and the top hose was hot whereas the bottom one was cold. Any ideas please? Matt

Answers

HI MATT I had the same problem but without any warning lights. We took it the Peugeot work shop and left them scratching their heads. They solved the issue on the 4th visit and i couldn't blame them due to intermittent limp mode. I was so frustrated and very angry but they came through. Now this may solve your problem...change the whole four coils at the same time. They changed one coil at a time and it worked for a short period of time. Someone decided to do all four coils and LOW BE HOLD it worked. Two years and no issues. Good luck mate and i hope this helps memet from Australia

Hi, my 308 struggles to start, first time it starts, the engine goes off. It's not that cold outside 12 Celsius degrees) and I drive it every day. At the same time engine warning light comes on and switches off as soon as the engine is running ok (usually the 2nd or 3rd attempt to start it). It's a 1.6 turbo diesel, 6yrs old car. This has happened now 3rd time within last 2 months. Any ideas please? Thanks!

There is a Glow plug Issue, one not working, you can purchase off ebay £18, I have just purchased a set, change the 4 at the same time, these on the 308 are a sod of a job to do if you intend to do the job yourself, allow yourself 6 hrs to do the job, the Glow Plug is 10mm & I understand when doing the job the plug can snap within the head causing the Head to be removed to complete the job.

Answers

There is a common problem with the rear lights and indicators caused by faulty connections at the connectors of each light assembly on 407's. The common earth pins have to carry more current and these may give up. An easy and effective solution is to run a separate wire from the common connection inside the light unit and bring it out to the earth stud nearby. Do this on both light units and you should be right. Trevor from New Zealand

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

Spray some Wd40 into the door lock, use your key to lock and unlock both doors several times manually and this should fix it. We put ours into a garage and £84 for a part and it still locked itself! I have read loads of threads about this problem and this worked, good luck. alan tait from Dorset

I had exactly the same fault. Every time I closed the passengers door it locked all the doors. I thought I would put up with it until the wife locked the keys in the car cleaning it today. When she closed the passenger door after hoovering the floor, all the doors locked with the keys on the drivers seat. The spraying of the WD40 into passenger door lock (best to use the straw attachment and poke it right in the lock), then putting the key in and turning the lock back and forward several times fixed it. Saved me the £84 garage bill. Thanks Alan Carl C from Buckinghamshire

Peugeot 106

What would cause the brakes to stick on my 52 plate 106? After i have been driving for a bit the brakes stick on and the car will hardly move. I have recently had the discs and pads changed to the front but when this happens the front wheels get really hot.

Answers

It is almost always the flexi hoses between the Caliper and the brake pipe. They degrade inside over time and eventually they stop allowing the caliper to release. Also, conveniently they are easy to replace. It can often happen if perhaps, someone unbolts the calipers and lets them hang down on the flexi hoses when working on the pads or bearings and such. Ian turley from West Midlands

Its NOT the flexihoses - I found its incorrectly lubricated slip pins or a cracked slip pin or grit in the rubber shroud - take off, clean, oil, put the stainless steel retaining clips back, and remove the rust on the shoe plate retention - the caliper is being held by rust or grit close to the disk, heats up, expands the brake fliud and locks on. Make sure to bleed out the now failed brake fluid! Ensure also that the numbty doing the pad replacement has installed the springs correctly and not tight! Unless they have almost unscrewed the hose, the sideways pressure of the hose will not be the problem. Stephen Roesner from Devon

Hi, that button on the right hand side stalk is to reset and change the trip meter/mpg, the small square screen in between the dials at the bottom, if you press it a few times it changes the screen. If you hold the button in it resets the mpg, if you want to turn the screen off (distraction at times) on the left hand stalk there`s a small roller button, put this in the middle to turn it off.

Hi guys, just a quick question. After driving my Peugeot 106 in rushhour traffic, so lots of revs and no higher gear than first, my fan comes on. This has only started recently and I was wondering if the coolant needs changing or something? Also when starting up cold with the heater on I hear this horrible screaming noise when releasing the clutch, which goes after 5 minutes or so. Can anyone help? Thanks. (1.1 look)

Perfectly normal - there has been no through air so the fan turns on. Stephen Roesner from Devon

I`ve just purchased an S reg Peugeot 106 and on starting in the morning the car needs to be revved or the engine cuts out. Is there anything to stop this so that it starts without revving? Cheers.

Have you tried changing the plugs? I had the same trouble on my s reg 1.5d. I replaced the heat plugs and it fires up first turn, well 90% of the time anyway. After all it is a 15 year old car :) Nathan Taylor from Yorkshire

At that age would also suspect an air leak in the diesel line - so it`s one by one replacement time until fixed. One thing the garages rarely know about is the fuel filter preheat is fitted but blanked in the UK - and after time the seal fails. I fixed mine as follows - Get some Brake cleaning fluid, arldite, paper towel and a piece of plastic bag. At the rear of the filter head at 90 degrees to the intake pipe there will be a hole/depression with a plug in it. When the diesel priming bulb is squeezed, there may be a dribble of diesel from this area. Using the brake cleaning fluid and paper towelling clean around the plug, at least three cycles, and allow to dry after the last towelling (DO NOT SQUEEZE THE BULB). Mix about 5cc total arldite and stuff it into the gap around the plug, then put the piece of plastic bag (2cm x 2cm) and place your thumb over the filling and hold in place until set. Peel off the bag cover after 1 hour. Replace as well the intake rubber to valve on the intake side of the filter - it should be replaced every 10 years as it ages. (Cycle 4 service - the BIG one that includes for diesel the cambelt idle bearing, water pump etc). Last of all (unless it`s obvious) replace any split bleedback pipes on the injectors - the clear pipes with bubbles are the clue here. Pressure the system after bleeding and start the car. Mine was hell until the leaks were cured. Stephen Roesner from Devon

Hi there. I have a problem with a fuse that keeps blowing whenever I put it in reverse gear. I never had problems with this before because I only recently discovered the car actually had a reverse gear light, so I asked in a garage why it wasn’t working and they told me that it needed a new switch. They fitted the new switch. It worked for a while, but now it keeps blowing the fuse again. The fuse is F7 in the fuse box at the front just below the steering wheel on the left. Of course, when the fuse blows, the speedometre doesn’t work and neither does the petrol gauge or fan. As soon as I change this 10 AMP fuse,for a new one, it works again but then blows again whenever I put it in reverse gear. For now, and so that everything else works I just want to disconnect the reverse gear light, which I believe I can do by disconnecting something in the bonnet, isn’t that right?

It`s the clipped plug behind the clutch cable rear mount, beside/behind the gearbox oil filler plastic cap, in front of the speedo cable. Press in the wire clip and pull up. Stephen Roesner from Devon

My Peugeot 106 Zest has a large amount of water in the rear passenger`s footwell behind the driver`s seat. The interior is not wet in any other place. The heater, windscreen, boot and sun roof have been checked and are okay. Any ideas?

Answers

Mine was the rear light clusters letting water in. I took them off, cleaned the black seal, then smeared vaseline around them and secured them back on, job done, no water in the rear of my car Dave from Dorset

The front door rubbers are misaligned / not inserted correctly / failed, or the bonnet rear rubber seal is missing, rarely is it the rear door rubbers. GET THE FLOOR DRIED OUT FAST as it rots the inner sills (then is an MOT failure.) The inner/outer sills are only available as a full door/side panel - they should NOT be welded as the undershutz and outer sill stoneguard are difficult to remove, and the internal construction complex - such as the lower seam is welded, spot welded, infilled, glued and arldited for strength - it took 6 months of serious engineering to replace mine and still have the cough.

The battery warning light on my Peugeot 106 1.1ltr petrol intermittently comes on, then goes off again. It is usually after driving 15 to 20 miles. The car starts first time, all lights, wipers and electrical systems work perfectly. The battery is approx. 4 months old, less than 1000 miles since the battery was fitted. Does anyone know why this is happening? (Zest 2)

Answers

Are all your nuts tight on your battery? Or you may have a loose wire on the battery or altenator. Martin from England

It also sounds like imminent failure of the alternator brushes / slip rings. If the alternator is Valeo then it`s an easy but not for the faint hearted fix. While the brushes are the same for the past 40+ years the slip rings differ (in keyway and shaft diameter) so get the right one - the slip ring height placement is, however the same. There is a youtube video of how to do it. Stephen Roesner from Devon
