Can anyone kindly tell me how to remove the rear light casing please?

Answers

Open the boot and remove the plastic casing above the light cluster. You should then see 2 bolts which need to be removed. Slowly but forcefully pull the light unit towards you. Shash from Greater London

Recently purchased off my mate who has advised there is a leak. Water is lwaking from "somewhere" the question is where and how i can fix it?? Water is going only into the passanger footwell and only occurs when car is washed or heavy rainfall. My mate has advised that the radiator has been changed but problem still persists. I have taken to ATS and been advised could be the windscreen. Has anyone had this issue and can u help?? Thanks

Answers

I had water in the nearside footwell, My 406 had roof opening, the problem of water was caused by the draining tube getting blocked by leaves and debris. A length of suitable wire enabled me to push the blockage out. In my case a piece of welding rod. chas clayton from Hampshire

Hi I picked up my 207 57 plate yesterday however, when coming to starting my car I turn the key and cuts out straight away. When I put my foot on the accelarotar and turn the key it's starts. I called the garage and they advised thats how i start the car up. Now I'm no mechanic but even I know that this is not how you start a car. I have booked it back into the garage for the morning however, just wanted some thoughts as to what the problem might be? The car was fully serviced and MOT yesterday therefore, spark plugs have been changed. Thanks

I have a Renault Megane Expression DCi 106, Registration number HK59EZC. My problem is, when I open the Hatchback door after a storm it tips water into the car, it looks like it comes in by the back glass. My car has only 60,000 miles on the clock but I have no idea if it has been a problem from new as I have only had the car for just over a year. I'm told that Renault understand the problem and will see to it free of charge, how do I go about having them do this?

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

I have a Peugeot 3008 and the eco lights flash when standing at traffic lights but it does not turn the eco on. Why is this please?

Answers

I only got my 2013 - 3008 e-hdi last week. Reading through the manual the ECO light will flash to let you know the engine will carry on running, according to the manual this could be for a number of reasons. I have found once the car has been for a run and the engine has warmed up the function automatically reinstates itself, thinking about it it makes sense, when you first use your car the load must be high with with all the electrics on etc. Ade from Portsmouth

I have exactly the same problem with my Peugeot 3008. When I first picked it up it was fine, I drive with no heating or radio and it flickers but doesn't go into eco mode. I was wondering if it meant the battery was getting low. I have driven it for over 60 miles so engine was warm but still no eco mode. I would appreciate it if you find any further info.

Lisa Collins from Plymouth

Hi James since my last comment I have found out the problem. I noticed that I was getting an error on engine management , it only last for seconds so if you blink you will miss it. This only happened the once. I took it back to garage as still under warranty, they saw the fault but could not identify it. So they cleared all faults. 19 days later it happened again so I took it back and they said it would have to go to main dealer. Vospers in Plymouth the Peugeot dealer said the code was relating to the battery. On the ECO cars there is a main battery and like a reserve battery for ECO this voltage was down so I had a new battery last Friday. Now the Eco mode works all the time. Beware the battery cost came to just under a grand !!!! Luckily mine is still in warranty. I knew it wasn't right after a week of having the car so for your peace of mind check it out. I have the error codes if you need them. Hope this helps. Lisa Collins from Plymouth

Thanks Lisa. That's answered my question . Will get ours booked in while under warranty. Lyn Jonez from West Midlands

Hi Lyn Glad I could help. They gave mine a health check which I think is about £40-45, this picked up the problem as well. If you need the error codes or part numbers let me know. I have spoken to a lot of people who have said the ECO doesn't work and they have put it down to the list that Peugeot give you of all the things that must be in place , outside temp, inside temp, radio on, heater on etc . I knew it wasn't right so glad I got it checked. Good Luck ! Lisa Collins from Plymouth

The left rear indicator on my Peugeot 308 is not working but the light is fine. When I remove the bulb and put it back again and put the cover back in place it works momentarily but then stops again. What could the problem be? Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Answers

I had same problem, turned out to be an earth fault got it fixed for £10. Follow these instructions Take out the lights remove the bulb holder part, locate the earth bar, it’s the one common to all bulbs, drill a small hole near the top and through the earth bar and plastic bolt a spade clip on here, with 30 cm of earth cable fit one end with a spade clip, fit a ring clip with a 6mm hole on the other end. Looking from the rear of the car with the light cluster out at the lower part that would be under the cover there are 3 fixed unused bolt holes 6mm find a short bolt to fit then bolt the ring end of the wire on any of the holes, re fit the plastic and light cluster spade clip new earth and re fit lights Arthur from Lanarkshire

If it’s any help, I have had to replace both rear inducator wirings as the connector burns out, a known problem. Approximate £200 per time K Street from Surrey

Actually a question When I took the cluster apart the bulb holders are all one part to the base of the bulb and the other to the top or side of the bulb. I think they are all positive as the 308 is a negative earth. So where is this earth rod "common to all" as, as far as I am concerned, the positives are common to all bulbs and the earth is no where to be seen except on the loom connector. Can you or someone be specific as to where it is. Kind Regards Jon Jon from Hampshire

Amanda, England

Peugeot 307 2002

I seem to have a problem with my central locking,(Peugeot 307, 2002 model) and I am unable to unlock my car. The remote buttons (unlock and lock) are unresponsive on my key remote. Ten minutes before this issue I successfully locked my car via the remote, but when I came back to drive home I couldn`t unlock it. I first assumed it would just be as simple as replacing the remote’s battery but I still cannot unlock it with a new battery. The bigger problem is that I cannot get into my car manually. There is no keylock in the driver`s door where it should be but there is a hole there where it should be. This is the condition I purchased it in 7 months ago (foolishly - I realise now), so I have had a mobile mechanic take a look at it. He was able to manually get under the bonnet to check the car battery, fuses etc and they are all fine, but he had no luck getting into the car from the driver`s door to find a solution. I hit the bottom of my car quite hard going down a flat then steep driveway and I am not sure if this has anything to do with it, maybe it bumped the wiring or something? Or maybe it is possibly a failure in the remote of some kind other than the battery. Is there a way to separate the two to know if it is the remote that has failed, or if it is an issue from inside the car? If the mobile mechanic cannot get into the car, is a locksmith going to be able to? I’m unsure what the best service will be to use. I just don`t want to have to keep spending money for call out fees and then still not be able to solve the problem. Also, there is no other key lock in the car unfortunately. There is no point of entry for the key to get into the boot or the passenger door. The boot only opens when the central locking is unlocked. Can anyone suggest a solution or what I can do next please? Thanks for any advice.

Hello. Amanda. I am having the same problem as you have had with your 307. As I can see the post is quite old, thus I presume you fixed the problem somehow. Could you please help me with some information regarding this issue? I can't seem to find anything on the web and mechanics don't seem to figure what is wrong either. Thank you very much.

Hi I have just taken my car for a service too David Hayton, Morecambe and they have told me that it needs a new clutch due to wear and tear. It's done 23000 miles and 2 years old. I have been told that same make and model has had problems with the clutch. I gave been estimated over £800 to replace. Any ideas.

Answers

If the car is only two years old maybe its worth checking the warranty? I am pretty sure they come with three year warranty as standard. Gavin from Cardiff

Hi all. My rear parking sensors when in reverse say I'm close to an object but there`s nothing in sight. I have cleaned them with a dry cloth, but they still constantly bleep. I now have to turn them off. Is it a faulty sensor, if so how do I find out which one of four? Many thanks.

Answers

I have this problem with mine. The sensors beep continuously to indicate I am directly in front of something. When I get out and look there is a clear 3 foot gap. I assume this is purposely done to allow room for error. What I tend to do is wait for the beep and then continue for another second. This is done at a risk of course. Andy from Greater Manchester

Hi, mine does the same. When I pop it into reverse the sensors beep like mad, even though there is absolutely nothing there. I cleaned the sensors but it still does it. I sent it in and they said there is nothing wrong with them, mad eh?. I now have got used to it but use more caution when I`m parking. I think the invisible man must be behind the car coz it drives you nuts! jo from West Midlands

noticed a loud scraping grinding knocking sound from the front right side..recently had bearing done and new discs and pads fitted , but the noise getting louder and louder,,,,any ideas folks,,,heard it might be bearings again or bushes ,drop links or suspension,,,???

Answers

Check the wheel inner plastic cover, has it dropped? Check your disc, there may be a stone stuck between the pads and the disc. Are the pads ok? you will get a grinding sound if the pad wear is down and the pads are down to metal, that touching the disc will cause the grinding sound. Trebor from Lancashire

I`ve just changed the windscreen washer pump on my Peugeot 307, but now it’s only working on the front windscreen and when I try to wash the back screen the water comes out of the front washers. Please can anybody help?

Answers

I’d double check your hoses on your washer pump one feeds the front the other feeds the rear, it’s a good place to start Kev from England

the pumps are rubbish and can fail in many ways. On yours the shuttle valve is stuck. If it is new, exchange it. If it is from a breakers then you can take it apart. The shuttle valve is the piece that the pipes connect to. You can lever it off the pump (On the bench!) Then lever the valve assembly apart and unstick the shuttle piece insIde. When it is free to move, you are sorted. Put it back together and it will work fine. The rubber on the ends of the shuttle can stick to the port if they don't get used for a few months - usually it will block the rears. ray W from Warwickshire

Hi my Peugeot 307 have the worse problem anyone could ever dream of. It will drive ok for half a day and when I turn the engine off to start again later it slows down very very badly. during this time it is unable to climb any hill efficiently, the meter will go as low as 10 miles an hour, often times I've to pull over to give the other road users way. It is a nightmare, no mechanic seem to know what's wrong with it as nothing shows up on the dash board. Has anyone out there ever experience this nightmare?????? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Answers

Yes, I have the same problem whilst driving the car, it will just automaticallyslow down until it struggles to get back power then it will just start again. Sometimes causing me to switch the engine off and then to start again. I do not know what causes this and neither does my mechanic. sharon from Bristol

hi, when i leave off the accelerator in 3rd and 4th gear as the engine slows i can hear what i can describe as a hollow turning sound , its quite a faint noise but its a noise thats only just appeared this last week , ive already out ruled this been a bearing as ive had that checked , does anyone have an idea what this could be ? im hoping its not the gearbox many thanks joanne

Answers

Is this sound present when you are turning Left / Right? if so, possible U/J. Drive shaft couplings. Trebor from Lancashire

Hi Trevor, no it`s also when slowing down on a straight road approaching traffic lights as well. When I put the clutch down the noise stops, also when I accelerate it stops. I can only hear when in gear once the engine slows.joanne from Yorkshire

Hi Joanne, if the sound goes when you depress the clutch it may be a thrust bearing. I am not scaremongering, but from what you say that`s what it sounds like. For your sake I hope it is not, but if it is, it`s the gearbox out. Trebor from Lancashire
