Peugeot 307

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...

Peugeot Boxer 2008

I was driving my Peugeot Boxer van when I noticed the engine was lacking power and to my horror smoke coming as I thought from the offside of the engine. When I applied the brakes to stop the pedal was very hard to press down. I then noticed the smoke was coming from the offside wheel so I inspected all of the wheels to find them all very hot The four brakes had stuck on, explaining the lack of power. When the brake fluid cooled down all wheels turned freely but the brake pedal had no pressure as though there was air in the system. Can anybody help please? (Boxer van 2.2HDI diesel)

Peugeot 308 SW 2008

Hi. My Peugeot 308 SW`s clutch completely failed at the weekend and I needed a tow home. I have been told I need a new clutch, slave system, flywheel, the full monty so what can I expect the cost to be including labour? Cheers.

Had the same problem, with ours, after 30000 miles. I think Peugeot wanted about £1600, but I got my local garage to do it for £1200. It’s a nightmare job, and takes about 8 hours as it’s difficult to get at. So good luck. Now ours needs the FAP changed or removed as that’s failed as well. I’ll never buy another Peugeot Jon Morley from Cheshire

Had the same problem. The garage replaced the master cylinder and this solved the problem. Alan Rimmer from Lancashire

Same Problem yet again. Last year 12 September 2012 Clutch Master Cylinder failed. Again this year 12 September 2013 Clutch Master Cylinder fail. My local Peugeot Dealer. Tulketh Street Southport repaired it under warranty plus a courtesy car. Hope it last a bit longer this time! Alan Rimmer from Lancashire

Hi, I feel quite strongly about this as I have had my Peugeot 308 (09 Plate) for 3 years and have just suffered my third clutch related breakdown. The first failure was a hydraulic pipe which was covered under warranty. The next two failures were, both times, the clutch Master Cylinder. The work required £180 each time and I am more than a little fed up with 3 breakdowns in a relatively new car. Any suggestions please? Mark Williams from Somerset

My Peugeot 206 SW`s multifunction display light has gone out. How do I change the bulbs in the multifunction display?

Answers

I have Peugeot 206 SW, I experienced the same issue last month, actually you don’t need to replace the bulb, just tell your Peugeot dealer to check the fuse below the steering, and check fuse no 4, replace it, the best thing is that Peugeot company they put a spare. Mine is working very well, in fact, I’m very happy with this reliable Peugeot Serge Sendre from Kenya

ken i had to renew the three bulbs as mine was just dim with one bulb gone they are the basic wire ended bulbs that just push into each bulb hoder and then the bulb with its holder then just twists a quarter turn to lock and conect to the circuit boards track ps,, dont get the bulbs from a peugeot or a citron renault out[et as they will rob you get the 12volt bulbs from a general motors shop i think i got mine for 50p each as opossed to £3.each hi, it is a simple job and it is a plug in connection on thin wires the front and top will wigle off then 2 screws hold pcb in place simple hope this helps brian, brian from South Yorkshire

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

Can anyone give me details on how to replace the cambelt on my 106 1.1ltr?

Answers

Remove bolts holding on black plastic cam belt cover. Position jack under engine and take weight off the engine mount remove engine mount. Get large spanner and rotate engine while checking through hole in bell housing (clutch end) for a notch. When you find the notch lock off flywheel and camshaft with an m6 and an m8 bolt. Remove old belt and roller while you are there it would be foolish not to change the water pump as well. Put on new roller and new belt. Tension belt by putting 1kg weight at 80mm moment on roller. Assembly reverse of disassembly. Top up coolant you will need to make a header tank and find the air bleeds. Tim from Hampshire

The shaking over 60mph sounds like wheel balance. You've most likely lost a wheel weight. Just drop in to a tyre garage and they can sort it quitr quickly.

Hi, I had a similar problem. The problem is the door actuator, this can be bought on e-bay for about £12 - £15 pounds. The door card has to come off and the inside handle mechanism will be visible. You should be able to see the actuator and how it comes off. Just a few screws or bolts. The actuator is plastic and the connecting piece splits or breaks.

I had the same problem a while ago. If you open the bonnet and look down at the gearbox you will see the clutch slave cylinder. Check to see if it is wet with brake/clutch fluid, inside there is a small rubber o ring. The pipe very easily clips off, check the o ring, if it`s not there properly check inside the cylinder, do not fit two o rings. I replaced mine from a Vauxhall Vectra, the rubbers are interchangeable with many makes. Bleed the system out. Mark from Hampshire

Peugeot 206

Bought a 2005 206cc second hand knowing I had to fix this. Just the back bumper is faded and chalky, not glossy like the car. I was told it was parked in the sun every day ?? Not sure why the bumper faded and nothing else... anyone else experience this happening and did you fix it by getting it repainted or is it just going to happen again ?

Answers

The rear bumper of your car will have been painted at some point and painted in 2 pack hi gloss or solid colour. 2 pack paints will weather or oxidise with the sun through time, like how you used to see red cars turn pink years ago. Nowadays manufacturers use base coat and clear systems which prevent this happening. Use a.good cutting compound like g3 or poorboys super cut compound and polish it with that to return the shine but through time in will continue to happen scott campbell from Falkirk

So the fading of the back bumper means it was likely a bad paint-job done by a previous owner and not a flaw in the car's original paint work? I wasn't sure what to do so took it to a professional car spray painter. Hopefully they have all the knowledge too. Car looks great! Annette from Australia

Today it did it again but this time I sat in it waiting and sure enough after 30 mins or so I heard a click from under the dash in the area of the fuse box, tried the ignition and it fired up perfectly. I have taken it into the garage twice and they cant find anything wrong, its not the battery (new one fitted) and they have tested both the starter and the alternator - all ok.

Hi there I have experienced this quite a few times with the Fiat Ducato. I had the vehicle for ten years, it can only be fixed by removal and then serviced. That is the solenoid because the copper pin inside the unit doesn't make contact because of temperature difference, that's why you have to wait for the temperature to decrease. You may see that it will work better in colder weather so do that or replace the solenoid to overcome it there and then, get a screwdriver and override it as if you are the solenoid. This will work. Hope this helps, it isn't an expensive problem.... preston young from Bridgend

Oh yes be sure the connection to the battery are tight as the current pull will be very demanding regardless to the voltage acquired at the time ,,its just wear in the solenoid ,,,I am an electrician I knows that this is the case .....all the best... preston young from Bridgend

Hi, my Peugeot 206 displays low oil pressure once I start the engine but this disappears once the revs are past 1. What might the problem be? I am also considering raisng the ground clearance. Would larger coil springs be the trick or would I have to also change the tyres? I currently have 195/45 R14. (1.4 petrol)

I have a 2003 Peugeot 206cc 1.6 16v it just failed the mot as the horn is not working, checked fuse that is fine, checked the horn with direct 12v and that is fine. Also noticed that the heated rear window is not working and I was wondering if they are related problems, are they both run through the BSI unit and the 40amp fuse for the heated rear window on the BSI is permanently live but the is no live on the cable on the glass. Any assistance would be helpful thanks.

Hi my car is completely dead, when i put the key in the ignition no lights come on, on the dash also when i turn it so it would be off then try again the speed dial flickers fast and my window wiper moves now and then really slow, sometimes it does nothing. Ive had the mechanic out and his changed my starter motor which needed to be changed anyway but ive also had a new battery. When he looked at it it started up but when i went to go in it the next day its all completely dead again. Can anyone give me any advice please.

Answers

the horn is located under the bumper drivers side, check whether there is a clicking sound when pressing the horn as it could be the horn switch in the steering wheel which has gone, common fault apparently ric from Bristol

I locked my car keys in the boot, have no spares. How can I get into the boot to get the car key or how can I move the windows down without the key so that I can move the roof which will open part of the boot and allow me to take out my keys? I have already tried the "0" button in the 307 cc logo at the back and have also tried the locking and unlocking button on the dashboard.

I did this too, I had green flag come out and they managed to somehow put a balloon in the boot and were able to get the keys out without any problem. Took them about 30 minutes in total from arriving. No damage at all. :) Lynne from City of Glasgow

Hello there. I'm assuming your car has cruise control. Check the cruise control stalk, you probably have it switched on the speed limit setting. Move it to the off position and your mileage will come back on. Peugeot Repairs from Greater London Peugeot Servicing & Repairs from Greater London

I have an intermittent problem with my 2005 307 SW AL4 triptronic. Sometimes the gear lever gets stuck in the Park position. The shift lock won't activate and release gear lever. Dash gear position indicator shows a flashing P and sometimes flashing R despite the gear lever being firmly positioned in the park position. Car drives perfectly when issue decides to resolve itself but unfortunately it returns unexpectedly, mostly when it's at operating temperature. Any ideas on what could be the cause of this issue? Thanks for help

Answers

Hello there. It sounds like the multifunction switch on the gearbox is out of sync, so although the gear lever is in a specific position on the gearbox side it's in another. It will need to be looked at by a specialist to rectify.Peugeot Servicing & Repairs from Greater London
