the answer would be to slacken off the screws. if the screws are metal and the bumper is plastic, generally there'll be no nut behind.. you'll sometimes get a nut if the screws are plastic... if the screws are metal.. there'll almost certainly be no nut R Evans from Caerphilly

Peugeot 207 2011

When I close the passenger door my Peugeot 207 automatically locks. How can I switch this off?

Answers

You have lock button on your 207 dashboard. Press and hold it for few seconds until you here click, that solves your problem, the doors will not lock automatically anymore Vlada car from Serbia

Please does anyone have a solution to this problem? Just for clarity, this is not the drive away auto locking that people are giving a solution to, that is not a fault but having the car completely lock itself when you close the passenger door " is". I am thinking it is the passenger door latch/cdl motor assembly. Has anyone actually solved this by replacing that part? patto from Berkshire

Spray some Wd40 into the door lock, use your key to lock and unlock both doors several times manually and this should fix it. We put ours into a garage and £84 for a part and it still locked itself! I have read loads of threads about this problem and this worked, good luck. alan tait from Dorset

I had exactly the same fault. Every time I closed the passengers door it locked all the doors. I thought I would put up with it until the wife locked the keys in the car cleaning it today. When she closed the passenger door after hoovering the floor, all the doors locked with the keys on the drivers seat. The spraying of the WD40 into passenger door lock (best to use the straw attachment and poke it right in the lock), then putting the key in and turning the lock back and forward several times fixed it. Saved me the £84 garage bill. Thanks Alan Carl C from Buckinghamshire

Peugeot 407 SW 2006

Hi. I`m looking to purchase a Peugeot 407 2.0 SW diesel Estate year 2006 with 134K miles on the clock but it all Peugeot dealer services and has had the fly wheel and clutch replaced last year at 114,000 miles. However the MOT shows a couple of advisories. One is the power steering warning light indicating possible failure. Two is the nearside front suspension has slight play in a lower suspension ball joint. Three is the nearside rear brake shows signs of overheating.

My Peugeot 407 SW’s multifunction display fades after 5 minutes of driving so you cannot read the display. It works initially. What might be the problem/solution?

Answers

Hi, I have found out how to do this from a helpful person. Firstly remove a battery terminal, undo the two screws on the inside edge of door panel, remove rubber grip inside door pull assembly to find the third fixing screw remove this, using a small tyre lever or large screw driver begin to work all the way round the door carefully prizing off the inner panel, there is a hooked bracket to lift this off in the corner near the mirror. Unplug and remove the mirror/window switches. remove door panel, lay to one side. Remove plug from socket of old mirror. Tie a cord to this. Using a number 13 mm extended socket, or box spanner remove the nut from the broken mirror and carefully remove it, tie the plug of the new mirror to the cord & pull through gently, fit the grommet & plug in the new plug to socket, offer up the new mirror fit the nut with the 13mm tool tighten nut, refit the inner door panel as before, re-connect battery, job done, and a small fortune saved in the garage, good luck Alan Glister from Norfolk

I have a 2014 peugeot boxer motorhome diesel engine I have an intermittant starting problem. plenty of power in battery but wont fire up if towed for short distance approx 12 ft and jump start it will start first time and then ticks over and runs no problem it is still under warranty have taken it into dealer three times but because its running they cant find the fault unless it is not running faulted. but I have to get it started to get it to them. as its 23 ft long it turns over no problem but wont fire up its like there is no fuel getting to the engine but there is.could it be the plugs or the fuel pump

Answers

What voltage have you got at the battery before you try to start it? Have you experimented by spraying some 'easy start' (I prefer the Aussie name for it - Start You Bast##rd) down the air intake and trying to start it? Mick from Portugal

Thanks mick for the tip called out the AA and he did what you said with the easy start spray down the air intake exactly what you said and it started right away not sure how to check the voltage on the battery the dealer fitted a new battery the first time it happened but there seems to be plenty of power in the battery I use a cut-off switch when Im not using the motorhome to save the power in the battery thanks again Paul p steward from Greater Manchester

The fact easy start got it fired up would get me looking at the cold start sensor and injector (burst of extra fuel for starting - easy start is a burst of highly inflammable fuel) or the glow plugs (heat the combustion chamber to aid starting from cold, aren't usually active when starting a hot engine) and then the crank position sensor. You can check the battery voltage with a multi-meter but as easy start worked there's no need to do it now. Mick from Portugal

Yes I had the same! Carly Hughes from Worcestershire

Open roof halfway, rear side trims are now horizontal (from vert). I discovered the trim was not fully seated.

This was on my passenger side, but would also apply to the driver’s side. I hope this fixes it for you. Colin Riou from Guernsey

There is a Peugeot modification part "Finger" available to stop the rattle I paid £22.02 inc vat for the part from a Peugeot dealer.

Answers

If it's electric power steering then it may be water ingress into the loom and also the fuse box if you are getting other spurious lights etc. The windscreen washer pump leaks water and causes problems with the wiring and connectors etc due to shorting out and corrosion.

Peugeot 307

Hi, I have a Peugeot 307 1.4 petrol and recently the Anti-Pollution Fault light came on out of the blue. After the first time I took my car to my garage, they put it on a computer and read the code. My mechanic told me that the catalytic converter will need to be replaced if the light comes on again. They put an additive in the fuel tank to clean out the system and told me to drive home on the motorway which I did. The car was fine and no light came on for a week but after doing around 1000km driving the warning light has come on again. I have to say that my car drives without any problems, no shuddering, no smell from the exhaust or anything else that feels different than before the warning light first came on. I understand from reading various forums that in other cases the problem was solved by changing the O2 sensors, coil packs, spark plugs or faulty injector but NOT the catalytic converter. So I am wondering if my mechanic is wrong by saying the cat is the problem. Please can somebody enlighten me? Claudia

Answers

If you have a faulty oxygen sensor or a fault in the ignition system it will result in excess fuel going into the CAT which can damage it. They read your fault codes then did the right thing in putting an additive in the fuel to see if it would clean out the system but it doesn't appear to have worked. You can mess around changing parts but it seems like they told you the CAT would need changed. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Peugeot 207 2009

My Peugeot 207 has a display which says that PLIP Battery Spent when I switch the ignition on and disappears after a few seconds. Can anyone tell me what is the warning about? Thanks.

Answers

It’s the battery in the car keys. This is also called the PLIP key. Your battery power in the key is low, that is all James from Ayrshire

The warning is regarding the battery in you key fob remote, used for central remote locking and alarming your car and registering the key to the car. It takes a small flat battery like a watch battery http://www.amazon.co.uk/Panasonic-CR1620-Lithium-Battery-Blister/dp/B0042JI5M0. You may have to reprogramme it after changing the battery though. I THINK putting in the key, turning it to position 1 or A then within 10 seconds press either button, the car should be unlocked during this process, although, you may want to check that out im not 100% sure Colm McK from Ireland

Hi. Your Plip battery is the one in the key fob remote, change battery and problem solved! Hope this helps Geoff from Warwickshire

Just get new batteries for your keys and change quickly then put them in ignition as normal and it will rectify itself. It is just telling you it is time to change the batteries in the key remote. Do not leave batteries out for long as otherwise you will have to reset the keys Sarah Bateman from Cambridgeshire

Peugeot 407

which years were fitted with feul pump+sender and which years are just feul sender thank you.

Answers

All 407's have a both a fuel pump and a fuel sender unit, without a fuel pump no fuel will get to the engine. A fuel sender just sends a signal to the fuel gauge to show how much fuel is in the tank, it doesn't send fuel as such. Mick from Portugal

Why not say what year your car is and whether it is petrol or diesel? For example the 2005 407 with 1.6 2 kitre HDi engines with Siemens pump do not have the combined fuel pump and sender unit you are referring to, they do not have a pump in the tank. There is a rubber bulb under the bonnet to prime the system during filter changes etc and for normal operation the suction side of the injection pump acts as a fuel lift pump to feed the high pressure side. .

Hello, I have a peugeot 207, when I put my foot on the accelerator after changing gear there is a whining noise that is getting louder. It is only noisy when I press on the accelerator. The mechanic said it was nothing to worry about, but I feel that it is a problem. Can someone please give me some advise. My husband is a non driver so he can't help me. Hope this is clear enough to someone who knows cars. Thank you.

Answers

Does it whine when you press the accelerator when the car isn't in gear (stationary)? If so it could be a slipping fan belt or the water pump or alternator are on the way out. If it only does it when in a gear is engaged does it do it in every gear or just one particular gear? If its any gear then it's probably the clutch or the gearbox main bearing, if it's only in one particular gear it could be wear in the gear rings for that gear. Mick from Portugal

Peugeot 3008

Hi I've got a 3008 active 1.6 on a 13 plate, message reads on dash above stereo Parking assistance faulty. I've checked the fuses with a meter and they're all fine. I've put my ear up against them when in reverse (ignition key in and turned but engine not on obviously!) none of the sensors are doing the 'ticking' sound like they should be. I've had it in a garage and all they've managed to do is tell me what I already know. The Auto electrician is saying the module needs to be removed and examined which is a couple of days work. The code reader is bringing up a fault code reporting that the reversing module isn't communicating with the ECU. Would one faulty sensor throw the lot out? My mechanic seems to think if one is out the others should be fighting against it and you should hear a ticking noise. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Matt

I would imagine that just having one sensor out would cause the whole system shut down on safety grounds owing to it not being able to perform its function without all the sensors working. Mick from Portugal

Answers

Try this; 1) Having opened the bonnet open the drivers door window fully so you can reach the ignition without opening the car door. 2) Remove the positive battery lead and wait for at least one minute. 3) Reconnect the positive lead and again wait at least a minute. 4) Lean through the window and put the key in the ignition and turn to position two (ignition lights on) but don't try to start the car, wait for a while (I'd suggest another minute) then lean in and try to start the car. If it starts let it tick over for a couple of minutes, or take it for a brief spin, then you should be sorted and future starting will be the usual easy process of just jumping in and turning the key.

Hi. My 2001 Boxer served me well, still is... Bought new without any serious problems I came across the first one! When turning the ignition key the dash board lights comes on as usual. The fuel heater light goes off and when trying to crank thr engine nothins happens! There is no sound coming from the starter nor any dashboard lights dim. If I try to do this with the head lihgts on (xenon lights) then the head lights dim but not the dashboard. Is it the starters fault, the ignition key, a fuse or something else. I very much appreciate your opinion Regards Kiri

Answers

Hello, Kiri did you get your issues solved? I do have almost exactly same phenomena going on with my 2001 Boxer 2,8 hdi. No staring signal reaching out to solenoid and starter. BR, Michael Michael from Finland

Herein is the problem of people not updating the site when they solve their problems. It could be immobiliser, ignition switch or starter motor. You have said no signal is reaching the starter, is that confirmed with a multi-meter or just an assumption because it's not starting? Mick from Portugal

Hello Mick, Still it is an assumption. I did a couple of times earlier, but then always cranked in the end. Funny thing is also that the oil level light is lit, even when I remove the keys. I would like to begin the fault searching with inspecting easily accesses areas then continuing with removing items one by one. //Michael Michael from Finland

With that additional information I'd look at the starter motor solenoid being the cause of the non starting. An old trick used to giving it a tap with a hammer whilst someone is trying to start it, if it then starts it's definitely the starter motor. Mick from Portugal

Need to replace the Brake Servo, because I had a faulty EGR Pipe that cracked when in France. A garage patched it up, but it ended up melting the fluid reservoir and Cam Belt top cover. Managed to obtain replacement parts but even though I have removed the master cylinder and vacuum pipe, the Brake Pedal Clevis Pin and the 4 nuts that secure the Servo to the Bulk Head inside the van, but it is stuck. I cant lever it away, Ive made a PULLING BRACKET that fixed onto the Master Cylinder studs and tried to pull it away using a heavy duty ratchet strap, and tried to knock the studs with a copper mallet. ANY IDEAS PLEASE ?

Answers

Have you disconnected the clevis pin that secures the brake rod to the brake pedal and undone the nuts securing the pedal bracket (4 nuts around where the brake rod enters the vehicle interior)? Mick from Portugal

Sorry, I just re-read your question to see you have done all that already except for removing the pedal bracket itself (which needs to be done, the air cleaner also needs to be removed). Have you tried running a sharp knife between the servo and the bulkhead to cut any mastic sealant that might have been used between the two faces. Mick from Portugal

The Air Filter is on the other side of the vehicle, so i don't think i need to touch that, but I did not realise that i would need to remove the pedal bracket. I will have a go in the morning. Thanks for your help Mick. Duncan Brierley from Lancashire

WHAT A BLOODY JOB. From the advice from Mick, I removed the o/s lower dash facia panel to gain access to the Pedal Bracket. I could not believe my eyes when I found that behind the Pedal Bracket, there are 4 more nuts and then another 2 to remove from the engine compartment, located higher up from the servo. Then I had to remove the EGR Pipes and Valve and the o/s engine mounting in order to lower the engine to allow the servo to be pulled out. Took ages. However, its all back together. ONE POINT, when lifting the Pedal Bracket away in order to gain access to the 4 nuts behind, I recommend to remove the plastic stop light switch as it would get damaged. Hope this helps others. Duncan Brierley from Lancashire

Thanks for posting the solution, so many don't bother which doesn't help others. Mick from Portugal

hi mick, the engine cuts out when turning on the headlights or main beam, but not everytime. Also it starts immediately after cutting out.

Answers

In that case I'd be thinking along the lines of there being some sort of voltage spike causing the ECU to throw a hissy fit. I don't know what the exact cause would be but I'd start by changing the light switch on the grounds that it wouldn't be too expensive and it is in effect the thing that causes the problem to manifest. Mick from Portugal

Should have said try changing the relay first (even cheaper). Mick from Portugal
