Peugeot 307

Can you tell me what type of power steering pump a Peugeot 307 xsi 51 plate petrol uses and where it is located, because I have lost power steering in my car? Thanks

Answers

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.

Hi I experienced the same problem with my 2007 V6 407. The problem was dealt with under warranty and was to do with a switching device linked (somehow) to the throttle fly by wire technology. This is evidently a problem found in similar vintage Hyundai Sonata's which I was lead to understand use the same switch. Once fixed I had no further problems. Hope this helps Cheers from NZ Neil Attwood from New Zealand

Peugeot 407 2005

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

Had abs/esp light come up intermittently, car went into garage nff, also repeated brake light bulb fail coming up, after spending several days trying to find the fault, in desperation I decided to check the wiring from the foot pedal, removed the pedal switch , opened it up to find the contacts carbonised, a quick soaking in a cup of cokacola and hey presto!, 18months later all is working fine still!! chris b from Switzerland

When I've finished driving and removed the key the display for the milage counter is still lit up. Is this normal? I'd assume that since the key is removed there's no need for this to still be on.

Peugeot Partner Combi 2004

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.

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

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

Hi, mine is also wet on the left side rear seat carpet. The leak it due to poor door/roof seals. You will discover that the carpet is actually wetter than you think.

Mine slowly seeps in from 2 different places. Temp solution - I have a 4mm drainage hole drilled in the floor so when the water comes in it then drains out. Also I have fitted some damp proof membrane under the carpet so the carpet does not actually touch the wet floor, works perfectly. I had to dry my wet carpet area first by placing a 2kw heater in the car for 5 hours with the door closed. Success in the end though. Had endless problems with this car Phil Moran from England

You can have the door and roof seals replaced, this will stop the leakage also. Save you drilling your car’s floor. When sunroof seals go, vaseline can make the rubber more supple. I am buying a 2009 207, and have been told, the seals may need replacing one day. See Peugeot for the professional thing to do a j from England

My Peugeot 207 CC (2011 plate) was purchased January 12 and is currently in the garage. Initially I was told the door seal was blocked with grit but after I collected the car the leak was still there and the floor was still soaking. I returned it for them to say they had done the wrong side. A few hours later we get a phone call saying all the seals need replacing for £700! I have written a letter of complaint and am waiting to hear back but I am not paying that - what a complete rip off.... Lisa from Essex

Bought a second hand 206, the warning dash light for the air bag has been coming on for a couple of weeks. Now there is an audible alarm made up of 5 double beeps that sounds at intervals once engine turned on. I don't know what the repeating alarm is as the airbag just gives two single beeps and then doesn't sound after those two beeps. Any ideas please?

Having same problem, comes on a while after it gets to normal temperature. Took it to the dealers, they had it 2 days but nothing showing on diagnostics. They had a test run to prove the light did come on. Took it in again today for one of their more experienced technicians to look at it. Waiting for their findings if any. Did you sort yours out?

Gemma, Yorkshire

Peugeot 207 2007

I have started to get a warning light saying "STOP Oil pressure too low" on my 2007 Peugeot 207 with only 24,000 miles on the clock. When I am driving the car the light goes off but as soon as I stop the car it comes back on and starts bleeping. Does anyone know what is wrong with my car and is it a big job to fix? I will never buy a Peugeot again as I have already spent £700 on various things for this car that should not be happening at this age. Can anyone help?

Answers

Hi Gemma, we had exactly the same problem. When we took it back to the garage, they said the head gasket had gone on the car. They changed this, we got it back and within 20 minutes, the same thing happened. It went back again and they discovered the wrong oil filter had been fitted. This was changed and it’s been fine since Simon Hoole from England

Hi, I too am having the same issue - only had the car since Saturday! Been in for a full service and all new filters etc, and again back in the garage - they think it’s a wiring problem and I shouldn’t worry. Kinda scary when it beeps at me though. Oil is all correct! Gemma from Northamptonshire

I have had the same problem for 3 years and still not resolved! Ive had the pressure switch changed 3 times,re-wiring, numerous oil changes and filter changes and its fine for about 3 months but then the cycle starts again.This time round I have now got a tapping noise coming from the engine alongside the warning coming on again. Its booked in with a peugot dealer next week so we'll see what they say..... Dave from West Yorkshire

Not something to treat lightly, as I've just found. Also had the warning as well as the engine oil pressure warning; both seem related in this particular problem. Technician could not diagnose directly, so went through a number of expensive replacements on a trial and error basis (catalytic converter, oil pump, then told timing chain tensioner broken... fortuitously broken part had not ground the engine to smithereens). On further investigation technician found this is a fault with Peugeot 207 engines (Mini too), subject of a recall to replace the crankshaft timing chain sprocket (timing pinion)... seems to be the common problem, showing up with rather innocuous seeiming warnings..

Hi everybody! My car is brand new. It uses to work perfectly until I took it to the first maintenance service (only with 2000 km on it). Now I feel the car slower and less responsive. One things that really concerns me is that in neutral, pushing the gas to the bottom i does not revs beyond 4500 - 5000 RPM. Is it normal? I did not test the car maximum speed before take the car to the service, but now, in 5° gear flat bottom gas it only reaches 145 km/h maximum speed. In every web site say that shuld run to 175 km/h. Any feedback. Any peugeot owner that can tell me his car maximum speed? Any advice would be appreciate. That you all! Sebastián

I have a Peugeot 307 it's been perfect until recently. I Left it parked flat for a day and when I started it up it was fine but the steering had all but locked. I had to physically tug it with both hands to make it turn, no leaks, had a new power steering pump fitted which didn't solve it, have found that the only way to fix it is to disconnect the fuse and reconnect. This solves the problem for a day or two but then it goes again, this has happened once when driving. Does anyonE have any idea what wrong or how to fully fix it?

I was reading about a problem within Peugeot and i suggest you contact your nearest Peugeot Dealer and explain the problem. I am positive they done a recall due to this fault. Dont drive it until the problem has been rectified please. This is dangerous. dj kwik fit from Dumfries and Galloway
