Peugeot 207

To whom it may concern I have a Peugeot 207 Convertible car. The problem is the water evaporates but i don;t know where because there are no leaks. Every time I am driving from town to town with is 30min apart I have to check the water. It is normal. What can the problem be because it is not ok or fun to drive the car like that. Thank You!

Hi there Does anyone know if its right that you have to put your foot on the accelerator pedal in order to start your 207? I have one garage who I bought it from saying you do and the other garage who I bought it to have a look at said you don't... Thanks Lorcan

Answers

You do NOT have to put your foot on the loud pedal to start the car. The Peugeot engine has direct fuel injection so will start without any further aid unlike other engines that have a metered mixture of fuel and air to start the engine... The dealer you bought it from is telling you rubbish. John from Essex

Katie moore, France

Peugeot Partner Combi

Replacing central rear seat belt on Peugeot partner quicksilver: central rear seat belt is jammed causing the car to fail it's MOT in France. Have managed to find a replacement seatbelt, but it now seems in order to access the belt, the seat needs to be cut. Is this the case? Is there a way of accessing the belt without taking the whole back of the seat off, or cutting into it? Seems like a ridiculous design, as the cords to release the seat backs break easily, leading to a whole load of problems. Thanks for any advice.

Answers

hi no you dont have to cut the seat Katie, had the same problem? when i contacted Peugeot they said at the rear of the set there is a metal plate, on the edges of this is a grove, in the grove there is the seat cove, you have to prize this out all the way round and take the seat cover of, just so you can get into the seatbelt fixing/. repair it and re assemble it the way you take it of. i havent done it yet but i am going to. as far as the MOT is concerned if you fold he seats down, technaclly they cannot touch them to test the seat belt there not allowed, so i will pass the mot . mine did with the same problem!. hope this help.

Craig, South Africa

Peugeot 207 CC 2009

The outside temperature is generally mid 25. The temperature gauge in the digital display of my Peugeot 207 CC intermittently, (not permanently), goes to minus and moves alll over the show. When this happens the aircon blows hot air / doesn`t work. The display also comes up with an error message - risk of ice! Is this a faulty theromstat and where it is located?

Answers

Sounds like the thermostat needs replacing... I have bought the 2009 207cc, mine keeps flashing in the console , but not what yours is doing a j from England

Hi Craig, I had exactly the same problem that you are facing, it took me months to solve it, at the end it was simple. The wire that connects from the passenger side door, all the way under the mirror in your case, is likely to be broken. Not the sensor. I had to change the sensor twice before the geniuses in Peugeot found out that was just the wire that was broken from inside. (After I showed them where it was misconnecting) They simply cut the wire from the mirror to the dashboard, past the door brackets and replaced them with a new one. Then welded and melted some rubber to cover the copper wiring, a really nice job since I thought they would just cover it with tape... To give you a hint if the wire is really broken, squeeze/shake the wire tubing that passes the wires from the dashboard to the door. If that is the problem, the temperature sensor doesn’t need to be changed, just the wire from the sensor. Cheers! Victor Carneiro from Brazil

Peugeot 206

I have 2002 206 1.6xsi with 187000 miles on the clock and i would like to check the gearbox oil level but i dont know where the level plug is.Its petrol.

Answers

The fillerplug is on the left side of the gearbox, easy to miss it as it sits within a row of bolts that hold a cap on the end of it (it is slightly bigger and has a square hole in the middle so should be able to find it). when a little comes out, level is fine but in all honesty, the only way to really know how much is in it, you have to drain and measure the amount. However, with those mileages, would be a good idea to replace the Gearbox oil all together. On the bottom of the gearbox there is a drainplug. It needs 2 litres of 75W80 gearbox oil. NOTHING ELSE, no 75W90, you will destroy the gearbox with that. jochem from Netherlands

sounds like sticking brake pads. Either they forgot to put copper grease between the brake pads and the callipers or they should have taken an angle grinder and grind away the pointy edges of the brake pad material, that would probably solve the issue.

I think you should check the level of your steering fluid, level of your brake fluid and DEFINITELY your oil level. If it is a lack of oil pressure, it could either be starved of oil around bends or your oilpump is on its last legs. jochem from Netherlands

Peugeot 207

I had the dreaded devolution fault message for a few months the car was running fine so I ignored it. Recently it didn't seem to be dining well so I took it to Peugeot for diagnostics. They called and said the fault was 'piloted thermostat control fault' and that it needed the coolant outlet housing and coolant temperature sensor to be replaced - cost nearly £500, it's worth mentioning that there has never been an issue with the temperature of the car and the thermostat shows normal readings. I declined the work and went to pick up the car the temperature gauge shot up to maximum as soon as the car was started, a red warning light came on saying do not drive car, also the devolution warning light and check oil warning! The garage are adamant that this is the fault the car went in with - again it has NEVER had any temperature issues, the car is now at Peugeot, I cannot drive it and do not want them to replace the part they are suggesting as it does not equate. Any ideas what may have happened which is causing the temperature gauge to shoot to maximum in a cold car, could this have been caused by the garage, it seems to coincidental to me. Please help, we are at a stand off over this

Answers

A very common problem with Peugeots, first it is safe to drive with this warning light showing, It could range from several items that need attention, spark plugs, coil packs, lamba sensors, coolant temperature sender, I have heard that supermarket fuel can exacerbate the problem, Did the dealer mention that a software update may be needed to the ECU/BSI units... As for £500 for a hose / housing and sender unit that is laughable, parts on Ebay for under £50.00.

hi I have a 07 plate 207, i have had car around 5 months. When I purchased car 5 months ago I did top up oil and I have since done about 1,700 miles. When I checked the oil levels yesterday the dip stick was dry!! I had to put about 1 & 1/4 ltrs in to get the measurement to register half way on the dipstick. Is the oil consumption generally high on 207's?

Answers

If you have the 1.6 vti engine then yes this is normal, expect to use 3/4 of a litre for every 700 miles travelled. The 1.6vti engine was a joint venture between Peugeot and BMW, this same engine is also used in the Mini 1.. Not an ideal situation to use this amount of oil.

That sounds to me like a problem with your coolent temp sensor. If the guage is going high with a cold engine it will give the ECU the impresion that the car is over heating and to protect the engine best it can it will put the cooling fan on and keep it on until the ECU goes to sleep.

I have identical issue on my in-law’s five year old 207. Have you find a solution to the problem? The dealer talk me to come on Monday to get the sensor replaced. Will this solve the problem? Jozef Orpiszewski from Poland

If it’s DIY, first place to start is temperature sensor replacement: Google it to find its location, check wires for good connection/no corrosion. If that doesn’t work, bring it to mechanic, could be wiring short or damaged ecu AC Motors from Ireland

Exactly same problem - AA man said sensor at fault, plus engine warning light came on too, couple of days later! ! Well worried. Still under warranty (just) so taken to dealer today. Sensor replaced, BUT, told this fault is / was subject to a manufacturer's recall. i.e. Peugeot knew of the problem and will replace sensor automatically without cost to owners. Begs the question , how to know of this recall if no notification from Peugeot ? Was told only way to know was if taken to dealer if fault developed ! So if your car warning lights come on when there is no fault, you can have the sensor replaced FOC, but what if they DON'T come on , through the same faulty sensor, and you DO have a serious problem arising ? Get it checked with your dealer -Peugeot have issued a recall for this, so it should not matter whether of not you have warranty. P.S. It will be an automatic MOT fail if not rectified.

If you don't use it regularly then it is probably a fairly normal thing.. keep an eye on your water/coolant levels and if they go down then revisit the possibility of problem.. I get the same with my Relay when not used often.. the only thing that would be of more concern at this point is the missing.. the question is.. is it missing or is it because of increased fuel injection like running on choke, but if that symptom disappears after about 20 secs then it is probably ok R Evans from Caerphilly

Peugeot Boxer

1996 camper which has a gearbox issue. The parts are no longer made ! Any help will be appreciated

Answers

Chris, you may find that Peugeot have stopped making the parts but you should be able to get pattern parts.. or a replacement gearbox. Don't forget..it's the same van as a Citroen Relay and the Fiat Ducato... and most parts are the same for each. R Evans from Caerphilly

This happened to me when I brought the car second hand from a Peugeot dealers. Dispute the car being still under warranty, but they charged me a diagnostics for disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. They could workout what the problem was, but I have not had any problems since. Ian Robinson from Nottinghamshire

Peugeot 107

So I drive a 2011 107 and I'm planning a road trip to Devon which will take approximately 3 hours there and 3 hours back. It's only going to be my friend and I in the car do we think my car will be okay for that long distance ?

Answers

Ive drove from Newcastle to Edinburgh and my 107 was fine no problems what so ever. Check your fluid levels, if they are getting low top them up, or take the car to a trusted garage and ask for advice most times they will top everything up for you. Check tired for wear and make sure they aren't too worn, again you can get the people at the garage to do this and also you could take a half hour break gives you a rest and the car :) I hope this has filled you with confidence :) Shaun from Northumberland

Peugeot 207

Hi I'm having a car Peugeot 207.LAst night I went back after buy some groceries. When I tries to start my car. There was a blink light at panel and all turns off. I tried to start but unfortunately unable to start. When I turn my ignition on there is tickering sounds, may I know what shall I do. My car is still not repaired

Answers

I have had a similar problem, I had the car mot'd and serviced and a week or two later I got in and tried to start it, all the doors opened with the remote. There was a clicking noise from below the left hand side under the dash each time I tried turned the key to the start position so I left the car and got the bus to work. When I came home I expected that I would be spending some time looking at the problem but the car started first time. this is happening more frequently now and what I have found is that if the car won't start I put the clutch down and put the car in and out of reverse and then it starts most of the time. It has even been the case that I have held the key in the start position, put down the clutch and as I engage reverse it starts. I have been back to the garage who did the service (not accusing them of anything) and mentioned this and they found it hard to believe but this is not imaginary it actually does start if I do this when the car has failed to start in the normal way. once started it will run and start ok for a day or more. I don't know why it does this but it may be worth a try for you. J mccormack from Merseyside

cut out while driving try to restart nothing economy drive mode coming on depollution faulty system was coming on for a while but was driving fine

Answers

See response to Lewis Wardell. Could also be that EGR (exhaust gas recycling valve) needs cleaning. My engine (diesel) cut out recently because of this. Apparently the sensor concerned detects a change in pressure in the crankcase and closes the engine down. The valve was cleaned at the cost of 3 hours labour and all is well. Use only fully synthetic oil was the advice I was given to keep the engine working well. Also mechanic gave the engine a full flush. (80k on clock) PUGMAN from Surrey

Peugeot 407

Hi, my 407's engine light has come on. I have been told by a few people it is to do with some special oil (like a blood bag) which should be put into the car as it has ran out. Do you know if this is correct? If it is, how much would it be and could I put it in myself??

Answers

Could well be if its a diesel. There is a tank of additive which needs refilling c 80k. Interestingly I was told having owned a Diesel 407 for 9 years by a chap at Peugeot that the additive (which is not cheap) is injected each time you fill the tank. In other words best to fill up the tank 100% each time which is what I have always done. So far no warning light. Elsewhere on Google a chap describes how to refill the Oilio tank but it did not look easy for an amateur. Hope this helps. PUGMAN from Surrey
