Peugeot 207

Is there a type of plate maybe a heat plate under the car which can come loose? Can it be removed safely or is it essential?

Answers

Margaret, if it silvered looking thing then it will be head deflector or shroud protecting the bodywork, fuel pipes and perhaps other components from the heat produced in your exhaust pipes. They do suffer from deterioration.. they are usually aluminium and rot with road salt... and when they get loose, they rattle like mad sometimes. Some will say it is not essential and can be removed because as you drive there's enough draught to prevent overheating.. but.. if you get stuck in traffic jams, what happens then? I'd get it fixed and refitted.. it's a part that can be fettled and a bracket added to fix it.. cheaper than buying new one. R Evans from Caerphilly

The other thing is it will stop setting light to long grass if you happen to park on it with a very hot exhaust pipe. John from Essex

Boxer Harmony 1996 Petrol 270SWB. Can anyone out there give me some idea of what the tyre pressures should be. Previous owner seems to have inflated to around 43 Front and 60 Rear. Regards to all.

Answers

Grahame, Open your passenger door and there should be a small stick-on attached to the door pillar near the latch indicating the tyre pressures for your vehicle.. I have Cit Relay 57plate and mine are shown as 49psi front and 65psi rear. R Evans from Caerphilly

Check your tyres, they have the correct pressures written on them. Gary from Cambridgeshire

My 407 is the same, especially if the cabin is warm. It might be fine when you fist drive off, even in cool weather, but it will fade away eventually. You can buy a replacement LCD panel (sits above the radio) on internet auction sites like E-Bay quite cheaply, around £40. There are even instructions on You Tube on how to remove and replace them.

Peugeot 207 SW 2007

I have a Peugeot 207 SW 07 plate. The dash warning light for faulty bulbs keeps activating showing faulty r/h rear brake light, r/h rear reversing, r/h rear indicator, r/h rear fog. Has anyone else experienced this fault? I have spoken to Peugeot about it but they want me to fetch it to them which I don’t want to do because they will charge me an arm and a leg for something which I think can be rectified simply.

hi, how to cure the faulty warning light problem its the earth on the rear light connector, 2 choices, firstly open the boot you will find a plastic wing nut looking screw adjacent to the light panel, unscrew this this will enable you to remove the rear light unit , you will see a panel with all the bulb connectors pull back the locating tags which will release the cover exposing the connector, simply pull out the connector you will see the pin 2nd in will be blackish maybe even burnt you maybe able to scrap and clean this up also bend the pin slightly before reassembling, this might cure it if not, choice 2 on the p c bulb board there is a 6mm diameter hole you will need a 6mm nut and bolt plus wire and crimping connectors bypass the connector and bolt the earth wire directly onto the board , choice 1or 2 will cure the fault, p.s. try the right rear side light first hope this helps JOHN Beere from Surrey

My daughter had a similar problem on her 207SW. So start investigation from the previous tips. The connector was fine no signs of corrosion etc. After conducting a few tests, with extra earth wires etc. It transpired it was simply loose bulb connections, giving an intermittent signal setting off the annoying warning system. Remove all the bulbs and tweek up all the positive contacts at the base of the holders - this ensures there is increased tension to hold the bulb firmly against its earthing pin location. Half hour and no cost to fix.....been OK for the last week. RIchard Wilson from Hampshire

Well thank you John from Surrey. Spot on with solution and clear directions to achieve it. Recommend give this a go. Maggie Maggie from Somerset

These 'bulb faulty' warning lights nearly always relate to the rear lights. Most common fault I found was damp / condensation within the power connectors that plug into the back of the light cluster. It doesn't have to be much to cause the warning lights to activate. Pull out the connectors and spray a little WD40 into them, same with the light cluster socket. Should help. Always try the cheapest and simplest things first. Egryn from Gwynedd

Driving along and my van seems to want to stall. After a few revs it's ok! Drive off again and the problem reoccurs. When I'm stopped it runs ok then wants to stall again! Noticed white smoke on a few occasions from the exhaust. Please help

Answers

White smoke is probably unburnt diesel, I am no mechanic but could be an injector failing and dropping too much fuel into one cylinder. Take it to a specialist diesel engine centre - not a Peugeot dealer and get them to diagnose it. Likelihood is that if it is an injector it will fail dramatically soon and leave you stranded.

Susan Stearn, Bournemouth

Peugeot 207

I took my car for the MOT this morning. There were no warning lights on or anything else that would alert me. When I picked my car up, the info.alert was telling me there was 'faulty anti pollution' and the engine management light was on. As I said the car was perfectly ok before I took it for the mot. I took it back to the garage, the guy plugged the computer in and everything went back to normal. I drove it home and everything was normal. When I went back out again the same thing happened, the light came on and warning system alert came on. The car passed all the emissions test, I don't want scamming for unnecessary work as they wanted to charge me £30 to plug the computer back in!,

Answers

The light / message that you have on now is typical of the Peugeot models - because they have an anti pollution device called a DPF - Diesel Particulate Filter system installed ... and they need particular service every so many thousand miles - usually around the 80,000 miles mark... Basically what will need doing if its around that mileage, is to have the system serviced as I say - which includes cleaning of the DPF system filters - and replenishing of the special injection system fluid ... Then when the whole procedure has been done - they use diagnostic equipment to reset the "timer" on the Ecu - control unit computer system on the car - and thats that for the next 80,000 miles or so... Peugeot dealers are best used for this because its a specialised job that requires specialised equipment ... Some smaller garages are equipped to do the job - you would have to ring round locally... Typically Peugeot will charge around 90 - 100£ for this job.. What you can try -if the mileage is not close to 80k... is to do this... Take the car on a run - you need a good clear road - motorway ideally - where you can drive the car - in 4th gear - for a sustained period of 15 - 20 miles at 60 mph. This has the effect of getting the exhaust particulate system hotter than normal and so if its just clogging - this will generally clean the system up. If that works, on the next start up, the message will be off... so you can try that as I say.. but if it is close to the 80,000 , you may as well have it done properly as it will need the new fluid - tank replenishing , the light ( message ) will not go out if this is the case. We see a lot of Peugeot 207 ECUs failing, causing the 'anti pollution fault' message to be displayed, failure of the coolant temperature sensor/gauge, with a constant overheat warning light on the dashboard, this will also cause the coolant fan to run constantly and may cause engine idling problems, also fault codes stored for the thermostat heater control. This also applies to petrol models. John from Essex

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.. Manuel from South Africa

My peugeot 207 10 plate had exactly same problem oil warning light came on 5 month after purchase topped oil up approx week later the car had a catastrophic loss of oil and had to be towed to garage it now won't hold any oil in engine at all currently with peugeot for investigation but timing pinion was mentioned. KP from Northumberland

We also had this problem with our 2009 Peugeot 207. It only happens in the summer when it's very hot weather and we have the aircon on. It was pretty scary, driving at 90 kmh and the engine just cut out. Pulled over and within a few seconds could start the engine starts again. Didn't happen once all winter and today, as it was quite hot, we had the aircon on and it happened again! Checked oil level and it is fine. Tonia from France

I had exactly the same issue. After investigating, it was because the earth cable had rusted and fallen apart! As the earth cable got worse and worse, it kept cutting out causing the beeps to come up. I’d advise you to have a look at the lights cluster and check the connector for the cables.

Hi. Can my Peugeot 3008`s clutch pedal height be adjusted as it is too high and gives me knee ache? Regards.

Answers

Sorry but this car has a hydraulic clutch which is not adjustable. glen from Tyne and Wear

Same problem with my new 3008 and now having it fixed at Hartwell's Dunstable as clutch pedal SHOULD have a limited that allows the pedal return to about 1cm above the level of the brake pedal. Graham from Bedfordshire

Clutch pedal problem resolved. It had become unattached at the hydraulic cylinder allowing the pedal to rise two inches higher than brake pedal although it continued to work. Graham from Bedfordshire

hi , for the antipollution have to change the oxygen sensor bank one and for the fan continuous running at high speed the problem may be the thermostat or the maf sensor raj.seewoodin from Mauritius

Richard, England

Peugeot 308 2008

My Peugeot 308 has an intermittent loss of power. At times I can press the pedal to the floor and the speed stays the same, but II can’t seem to reach 30mph at full throttle. At other times it goes like a rocket. There are no warning lights and nothing showed during a diagnostic check at the local garage. Any ideas? (THP 140 Auto)

Answers

Try to change the fuel filter first Choukri Kayal from France

Hi Richard, I have experienced the same with my 308, in fact I have had the car actually lose complete power and switch off while driving. Peugeot advised me it is relating to dirty diesel. I argued that this is a safety issue, especially if travelling long distances in Australia. I nearly killed myself on one trip where the the car just would not give me enough power when attempting to overtake a road train and then when arriving at the nearest town, the car was just shutting down. After being advised it was dirty fuel, I contacted Peugeot Australia to advise that the car is not safe. They took no responsibility and told me to take it up with the fuel company. I would love to know how many other 308 drivers have been experiencing the same issue. Granted I have become more selective with the fuel stations I fill up at and this seems to be ok but still not good enough on Peugeot part as every now and then I still get momentary loss of power. Anyway, best to ask your Peugeot service centre to give your fuel system and filters a bit of a cleanse then fill up on some fresh diesel at a service station which has a high turnover of diesel supply Aussie 308 from Australia

I too have had car cutting out at low speeds. I have 308 diesel and I also have an Expert van. Both go to same fuel station which serves Shell diesel. 308 had diagnostic check and had clear all fault codes but none related to this issue. I asked machanic at Peugeot to look at fuel filter which was a little dark so decided to replace and car has been good so far. Also tested battery which failed. Will replace just in case that is playing up with ecu. Some days the car ran beutifully and other days was very sluggish and 6 speed auto very slow in changing as well as reduced power Paul Kelly from Australia

My girlfriend had a similar problem and after much strife it turned out to be her cat/converter. Expensive as she had only had the car 3 months. On replacing it the mechanic said if he had a penny for every 308 that came through his door with the same fault, he would be a rich man Ian Mac from Ayrshire

Hi, I think it could be the catalytic converter as it happened to my Peugeot 308 @ +/- 15,000 klm which was replaced by the Peugeot dealer as it was under warranty, it is really a sluggish and frustrating situation when on the road and cars behind u are impatient not realising your snail paced scenario. I hope this will help. Cheers Keith Johannes from South Africa

Yep my 308 seems to be doing the same thing, at first the engine would only switch when off when I was almost stopped, last time it shut down while I was about 30km going up a hill. Scary stuff with a 2 yr old in the back! Anti-pollution faulty comes up, after it was serviced and they adjusted the sensor it did the same thing. Hope it's not like what happened with that VW. I'm not driving it now, too dangerous. I hope Peugeot will trade it in for a newer model. cally from Australia

Hi. Had loss of power with my 308 peugeot , wen we stopped we could rev the engine, but as soon as we went to drive it, lost it again , called breakdown as we were on motorway , they towed us to service station to have a look , fitter could not find a problem ,after lots of checks, he gave the engine a rely good rev up that clear'd some sort of filter lots of black smoke , and it has been ok ever since done 5000 miles no prob . Have been told by local garage this often happens to diesels it needed over 3000 revs short burst . Hope this helps. Andy Andy from Berkshire

Karen, South Lanarkshire

Peugeot 107

The exhaust has fell down on the right hand side of my car , I think it only requires a clip can anyone help me get the correct clip I need. The exhaust looks and sounds ok, just needing clipped back on Karen

Answers

Karen, it's likely that your exhaust mounting rubber has perished and snapped. If one has gone the other may not be far behind so change both just to make sure.. don't worry, you'll not need to rob a bank to replace them they're less than tenner on 'popular auction site'.. for two.. just type in "peugeot 107 exhaust mounting rubber".. yours will be round in shape with two distinct holes.. one hole for exhaust one goes on car mounting point.. use washing liquid neat on the rubber to help slide old off and new on.. rain will wash it off. You will have one rubber mounting each end of the rear box.. in other words one towards passenger side and one to drivers side. R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi, thanks for that ! I've just had a look under the car it looks like a metal bracket has snapped, it feeds through the rubber mounting! There is a piece of metal through one side but rusted at the other end ! I think I'll need the metal part . Thanks again Karen Karen from South Lanarkshire

Karen, in that case it depends which metal bracket has broken off.. the one on the exhaust box itself or the one on the car.. more likely to be the exhaust one than the car one.. if it's the car one, you'll need a bit of welding to get it back on and you could do the same with the exhaust one, but to be honest, if it's corroded that bad that it's broken off, you'd be better off getting new back box.
