Peugeot 3008

I am currently about to have a go at replacing my passenger side electric wing mirror on my 61 plate 3008 1.6 hdi sport, due to someone smashing into it and driving off at night time. Does anyone know if this is a skilled job or whether someone with a bit of common sense should have a go? Before I start, if someone has done this before are there any good tips that would come in handy and also any attachments I should unplug beforehand? Also I`m a bit worried about whether the bolts that hold the mirror are easily accessible or not? Any tips, good or don`ts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all for your time and website.

I took my ns mirror off on a wheelie bin whilst parking the other day, I'm no genius but it wasn't hard to replace, hardest part was putting the back plate back on, push the mirror in the footed position to do this as it's much easier. Steve from Merseyside

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

Hi my 207cc had a loud rattle coming from the roof where it meets the windscreen, I sprayed the catches on the top of the windscreen with mr sheen cleaner and the noise has stopped. There are similar catches on the bottom of the roof near the boot so it could be a similar fix. Wayne from Cheshire

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

Peugeot 207

My 2009 207 1.4 vti had "check oil level" come on last week so I put some oil in - less than 0.5 litre so not over-filled. Used the car later (early evening and outside temp only about 18 degC max) and the fan stayed running after turning off the engine. Since then every time I start the engine and turn it off (within 5-10 secs) the same thing happens. Looked on-line, lots of suggestions that it could be damaged oil filler cap, so I just replaced it (from Peugeot garage) but the fault`s still there. What else could it be please?

Peugeot Boxer 2004

My Peugeot Boxer keeps putting on the engine management light then just stops. It will reset itself after a few minutes, then start up again and drive. This could happen maybe 6 times a day. I had it on a computer and it is saying there is a fault with the immobiliser. I’ve been told you can have this disconnected, the cost I’ve been quoted is 220 pounds. Does anybody know anyone with the same problem? I can’t get anybody in Northern Ireland to disconnect it, I have to send it to the UK because it has a double socket ECU unit.

Answers

I am having the same problem. First it stops 2 times then day by day. More n more. Now it stops 7 times or more. One thing I notice is after that fog lamps stops working. I think it could be short wiring. But not sure Jas from England

Ian Hudson, Australia

Peugeot 206

Hi, I purchased a 2004 Peugeot 206 SE about 8 weeks ago and it seems to have developed an unusual intermittent problem. Changing down as an example from fourth to third, taking foot off the clutch and accelerator it speeds up, sometimes quite dramatically, but in recent days it has become a lot worse. I have also noticed that while it is speeding up it doesn't show up on the rev counter or the speedo. I have had the electronics of the accelerator checked, the carb cleaned, "Fi", a new fuel sender "under the back seat". The clutch was checked today. I am still a bit suspicious that there is something wrong here, "noting that the car was in first without the accelerator being touched and the clutch pressed to the floor, it gathered speed by itself". At idle about 750-800rpm, when it accelerated in first it rose to 1000rpm. I`m not sure if this is an electronic issue, I can't find a similar problem anywhere else on the net except when it may cut out but mine doesn't cut out. So could there be a sensor not working or giving out false info to the carb?I did consider it had to do with turning or braking, even the power steering, but it happens in a straight line with no braking or turning. I am not gifted at cars these days so if anyone can offer me some advice it would be very much appreciated. I`m supposed to go on holiday tomorrow and am not sure if I should due to it getting worse. Thank you in advance for your help, besides this issue this is my third Peugeot, perhaps the one with more problems than the others, but I love them anyway

Peugeot 307 CC 2005

Hi, can anyone help? I have a Peugeot 307 CC with the antipollution light on and when the engine is warm it feels sluggish and chugging . It feels like it`s not firing on all cylinders. What should I do?

Answers

Check for blocked exhaust or faulty catalytic convertor or 02 sensor (so long as 98 grade fuel is being used) Paul Andrews from Australia

I’ve got a 307cc and have had this problem from the very day I bought it. Only by reading up on the internet about the 307cc Anti Pollution Fault, did I realize there are thousands of 307cc owners who have the same problem. Peugeot refuses to accept this problem and it costs at least gbp 75 by Peugeot to put it on an electronic instrument to have it tested "result - no problem". Just to find it happens again. So... I went to the garage, put the best petrol in my car and have never had this problem again, until just recently, when I put the normal leaded petrol in... Now my 307cc is sitting in the garage trying to be repaired. Advice; Put the best petrol in.... then there should be no problems... Or just sell it Lynda Seehaus from England

I’ve had the problem for the last 3 years. After reading on the internet, changed to the Super Unleaded petrol. Drove without a problem for the last year. 3 days ago, the Anti Pollution Fault reappeared... Had to have the car towed to the garage. Electronic reading was completed, with "9" faults... According to the garage, its now the "Throttle"... Its a beautiful car, but I think its time to part. Even Peugeot won’t admit there is a problem with the ´"Anti Pollution "... they say there is nothing wrong. Try changing to the best petrol.. but it can be lots of reasons...usually something to do with the mixture of petrol and air.... Lynda Seehaus from Wiltshire

Had the same prob with my 307cc 2ltr. Do not take to dealer, they will rob you and give you you a load of bull. The cause is the reading between the exhaust sensors caused by incomplete combustion. Carefully remove the injector rail you will get a small amount of fuel shoot as you release the fuel pipes, put a circuit tester on each injector to test for open circuit my fault was a faulty injector, got one from my local breaker yard, £25 problem solved. At the same time change the spark plugs as I did. The ecu will reset itself overnight, if not disconnect battery, leave overnight like I did and it resets itself. Hope this helps Terry from Nottinghamshire

Hi, can anyone help, our side light on one side always stays on, even when they are switched off, when we put switch to Auto the same we have to have the lights on side light mode all the time. Can anyone offer a solution and as anyone had the same problem, it's driving me insane?

Answers

Hi, I can only think that one side of the sidelights (front & rear together) will stay illuminated if you park your car with your indicator stalk to one side.......... by this I mean, are you leaving the car parked with your ignition off & key removed but have your indicator stalk in either the left or right turn position?????? glen from Tyne and Wear

I have a 55 plate 1.6 auto. Had it only a few days. Like the car , and pleased with it. I notice it has sports mode, and when I press it on you can tell from the revs it's in sports mode, my question is, is there no light or sign come on to tell you?? With auto's in the past it either shows on the dash or the "S" has a light on it...

hi had cluth stick down when depressed garage came and took it away said it was the slave and changed it. now they claiming the 3 rd gear pops out and must have done for ages ass its a gear box fault. This has never happend before it the clucth got stuck, Is it possible the garage has moved or moved the gear cables to cause this as i dont see how a gearbox can go with only 40k on clock and was working perfect before clutch repaired thanks for any advice.

Answers

On my 2012 308 to get to the slave cylinder meant removal of the gearbox, changing the cylinder and then gearbox replacement. I'd put money on the garage not refitting the gearbox correctly causing a problem with the gear selector linkage. Seb from West Sussex
