Peugeot 207 CC 2008

My wife`s Peugeot 207 CC had a timing chain fault at 18,000 miles, 6 months out of warranty but within an extended warranty period. Peugeot said it was fair wear and tear so not covered. I know Mini have done a recall for a tensioner and chain problem and as it is the same engine I thought Peugeot might do the same. Does anybody have any info about a recall on this engine? Has anybody had a similar problem that Peugeot have accepted responsibility for? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Answers

Hi Mike. I bought my 207 four years ago and have so far spent £1500 on repairs for the catalytic converter failing, and the problem with the anti pollution system. This week the engine has started knocking and my mechanic assures me the timing chain has gone, I have done less than 40,000 miles. Without question it has been the most unreliable and expensive car I have bought, needless to say it’s going and I won’t be having another Peugeot. Customer Support has been rubbish. Good luck Alison Lee from England

This car has a timing belt not a chain, anyway the belt lasts at least 80k - why do you want to change it? Chucri Kayal from France

Same happened to me, really noisy and engine running badly two weeks after purchase, car only 3 years old with low mileage. It was a failed tentioner on timing belt and luckily the garage agreed to have it fixed for me. The cost of the repair was £458 for parts + labour (which I imagine was VERY high as it needed collecting and transporting to garage and then whole engine out of car! Rreally pleased that I bought the extended warrantee!) Roy Wareham from Kent

The same just happened to me on my Peugeot 207CC with only 57000km on the clock. The Peugeot specialist has just told me that it may be part of the recall that was done on this model for this exact problem. I will find out tomorrow if it is and if so, I will not have to pay for it. I will keep you posted. And I’m sorry, Chucri, it has a timing chain, not a belt... Marc dos Santos from South Africa

My 207cc has just had timing chain done, back at Peugeot. It had smoke coming from the exhaust and failed its MOT, due to too much CO2. I had to pay for timing done as was not aware of recall. Jenifer Watson from England

Yep I have had this problem too, Anti pollution warning. Garage did diagnostics, it`s TIMING CHAIN. My car is Peugeot 207 sport SW 2010 with 32k on clock. Dawn Jenkins from Milton Keynes

Peugeot 107 2007

I just bought a pre-owned 2 tronic Peugeot 107. My problem is it rolls back slightly, even when I am moving off from the slightest slope. It makes me panic and now I am scared of driving it in case I encounter a steep slope and it rolls backward and hits the car behind me. Does anyone have a similar problem and do you know what causes this?

Answers

Hello, You have probably solved your problem by now, but yes the 107does roll. I never thought I would manage hills when I have to stop and start. I would really panic. My husband took me out for a few 'lessons' and it doesn't take long to get the hang of the brake/accelerate and 'biting' point. I still prefer my old automatic though, it did the thinking for me! Joking apart, it is only legal for me to drive an automatic, but this is more like a geared car, and would not have chosen it had I realised. June from Kent

Peugeot 407 2005

I have just had my brake pads replaced on my Peugeot 407 but still get a warning light saying that the brake pads are worn. I also get a warning for the direction indicators but all are working okay. Any ideas please?

Answers

2 things pop in to my mind 1: the breaks fitted did not come with sensors if done not at a pug dealer, your mechanic taking a chance. 2: the sensors not connected or faulty Anton Pug from South Africa

Same as me, the garage has not reset the management system (computer) to let it know the brake pads have been changed so it still thinks the brake pads are worn. Some garages only have limited information / when resetting the diagnositics it has to be done by the dealership unfortunately. I also have a problem with the directional indicator failure this is a faulty sensor again get it into the dealership Steve Grimes from England

These problems are often caused by poor continuity on the earth wire of the rear light cluster setting off the sensors. Check the plugs and sockets of the clusters and clean off any corrosion / burning damage from the pins, specifically pin 4 which is usualy the earth cable pin Steve from Yorkshire

Gary, the rear light cluster has a known problem with the earth wire failing, mine had the same. There is a DIY fix see link below, although I had mine done by a car electrical engineer for about £35. However before doing any work try taking the connector apart as Steve said, but also spraying some electrical contact fluid into the connections. Can't help with the brake pads.http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20359976/rearbulbs.pdfhttp://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20359976/rearbulbs.pdf Good luck MartinMartin from Kent

Our Peugeot Boxer`s key code light is on and the engine will not start. We do not want to replace the diesel pump on so old a van but we need to move it though. Is there any way of bypassing the immobiliser? (350 LWB)

Answers

The immobiliser has gone into default mode. Find a garage who can rectify it with an electronic fault finder which can also rectify the problem. Just had my Boxer key problem sorted this way Rob from Suffolk

We had this issue in France - assumed that it was the horror of an immobilser code key issue. Starter motor was turning over but not firing. However! Local mechanic found that it was a slightly faulty connector that entered the fuel pump (I belive a loine from the ECU into fuel pump) and we managed to get the code light to go out by sticking a screw driver in and wiggling at this juncture it appears to be an intermittent fault and I am told from Renfrewshire

I had the same problem last year with my 1999 Boxer. All I did was change evert fuse in the fuse box inside glove compartment(inside cab) had no probs since. Peter McNamara from Yorkshire

Keith Evans, Northern Ireland

Peugeot 407 SW 2006

My Peugeot 407 SW has a bad intermittent misfire, spluttering and running rough when starting from cold, which improves as the day goes on, but there is no engine light. I have hooked up a code scanner, but there are no codes, not even one for misfire? I have an intermittent ESP light but I fail to see how this might cause a misfire, it may be that the misfire is causing this light to come on even. I’ve changed the spark plugs, which sorted the problem for one day but now it’s back. I don’t want to get into replacing injectors, coil etc. unnecessarily. It must be something relatively simple if there are no codes thrown up. Does anybody know why there isn’t even a misfire code or has had a similar problem? Thanks for listening. (1.8 Petrol)

Answers

This might be due to a mistuned automatic choke Arne from Norway

Keith, sometimes it`s difficult to understand. Today the whole car is electronically controlled and it`s very, very difficult and even the agent will not be able to identify them. My opinion is since you have replaced your spark plugs and it lasted for a day, the suspicion would be your spark plug high tension cable is corroded or loose. Check them and clean with a smooth sandpaper and clam it slightly to ensure when you slot it in you should hear surge, feel that it is properly seated. If all goes well then it should be ok. Check also the coil connectors as these connectors do get corroded and contact loose. Should all be well then it should start quite easily. If it persists then undoubtedly it would be the ignition coil. The new ones come in a set, coil and high tension cables.Good luck.Paul Paul from Malaysia

I got a 2.0 petrol engine on a 2005 car. All normal checks were done regularly. When I start the engine, it gives white burned plastic smell from the exhaust system and the engine must be revved to 2000rpm so it won't Stall. Any thoughts?

Answers

Guy, It could be the petrol that you are using is adulterated. Change your fuel to 97 Ron. The sparks plugs need replacement or dirty. Check the colour of the tip of the spark plugs and if black then too much fuel which may be the fuel injectors are problematic. Another is the high tension cable and coil which comes in a set which might be faulty. Paul Paul from Malaysia

Answers

Peugeot has an inherent problem during cold start. One way is to replace your spark plugs to Iridium. The plugs have to be adjusted to cold start. The contacts on the high tension cables could be corroded or the coil is not supplying the correct amount of current to the spark plugs. Another thing could be sticky injectors. Put in 97 Ron petrol and push your car for 10 to 20 miles at 60 mph and that should push the rubbish out of the exhaust.Paul Paul from Malaysia

Have been quoted £1500 to replace a defective fuel injector ( Engine still running on 3 cylinders) Is this a reasonable charge for what seems to be a minor repair?

Answers

Had same problem with a 1.6hdi ...... was quoted over £2000 by a Peugeot Dealer to replace all 4 !!!!! so I purchased a used injector (low mileage) from Ebay for £89 then got a local mechanic to diagnose which one was faulty and change it..... cost £50, then lastly you have to take it to a Peugeot main Dealer to reprogram the BSI and Injectors , this cost £95. Car now runs like a dream, total cost £234 Mick from Lincolnshire

Peugeot Boxer 2012

I have just taken delivery of a new Peugeot Boxer camper van based on the Boxer 2.2 diesel. The mile odometer on the digital readout constantly flashes, which I am told is incorrect. I have been back to the camper van supplier who has not been able to correct the fault and they suggested that I contact a Peugeot dealer. Can anyone help please? (Camper Van)

Answers

Contact Cartronix, look up their web page they will fix any problem with speedo. I know this is true, they just fixed a problem on my cle 500 merc, that noone had any idea about it, except the merc dealer and they wanted £1400-00 for a new console. Cartronix fixed it for £120-00 all in, they are quite brilliant. Good luck Nigel Wheeler from Dorset

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
