Peugeot Partner

Hi, I wonder if anyone has any advice for me. I have recently bought a 2003 (03 plate) Peugeot Partner Escapade 1.6 Petrol and I have already noticed that the clutch is slipping quite often when in third or fourth gear. I'm wondering whether the clutch is on its way out? I've never had this happen on any previous cars I've bought. It'd done 135,000 miles so fairly average mileage for the age of the car. If it is the case that I need to replace the clutch, then I will probably have to scrap the car unless I can find a used clutch somewhere from a breakers yard. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

Answers

Fitting a used clutch is a false economy. 50,000 miles of city driving is a lot tougher on the clutch than 50.000 miles of motorway driving. Similarly if a driver slips the clutch excessively when pulling away it will wear the clutch out quicker than a driver who doesn't do that. Don't base clutch life expectancy on mileage.

stop start will not work on a april 2016 new car

Answers

I have a 2016 model. There is a switch on the rhs of steering wheel. Make sure the eco is switched on. To allow it to stop/start certain requirements need to be met. The stop/start runs off a separate battery which runs off the main car battery. If this see a drop in Amps it's will not allow the eco to work due its brain thinking the car won't have enough amps to re start. Also outside temp plays apart. If it's during a re gen it won't active eco either. Ayrton from Warwickshire

There is sometimes a clicking noise when automatic transmission is in Park position. It stops when put in drive or neutral. There are no error messages or fault lights but I am concerned about what it might be? Any ideas?

Answers

Hello, this sound come from Automatic Gear Selector; so when you put gear selector on P, you hear sound like clicking, when you hear this sound you, you cannot move selector until you keep pushing brake pad; actually you don't hear this sound while your car gear selector not on P position. By the way, sometimes you keep hearing this clicking sound come and go without any action from you; I mean you are not pushing brake pad; this happening while your car gear selector on P position because you have problem in the sensor control this mechanism. amjad from Jordan

Peugeot 3008

My Peugeot 3008 has developed a 'whining 'noise when being reversed. This appears to be coming from the rear offside. This was initially when on a left lock but has now has started on right lock and also on a level reverse. My local garage has fitted new brake pads and a new calliper but the problem remains. It initially appeared to be when braking at the end of the reverse but now it will do it with or without braking. The noise appears to be when the vehicle has been running for a couple of miles, so hot. I am wondering if the fault could be elsewhere and the sound travelling. Has anyone else experienced the same problem and if so could you let me know what the fault was. Thanks.

Answers

I assume you have had this sorted by now but I had a similar sound from my 2010 Peugeot 3008 about 2 months after I bought it second hand and got it looked at under the warranty. After much investigation and several trips to the garage they found a defect on one of the brake discs. I think it was something about the layers expanding when it got hot creating a gap which turned the brake disc into a musical wind instrument. Of course the discs weren't covered under the warranty but after I paid to get them replaced the problem went away. S Jones from Powys

Peugeot Boxer 1998

Our Peugeot Boxer`s key code light is on and the engine will not start. We do not want to replace the diesel pump on so old a van but we need to move it though. Is there any way of bypassing the immobiliser? (350 LWB)

Answers

The immobiliser has gone into default mode. Find a garage who can rectify it with an electronic fault finder which can also rectify the problem. Just had my Boxer key problem sorted this way Rob from Suffolk

We had this issue in France - assumed that it was the horror of an immobilser code key issue. Starter motor was turning over but not firing. However! Local mechanic found that it was a slightly faulty connector that entered the fuel pump (I belive a loine from the ECU into fuel pump) and we managed to get the code light to go out by sticking a screw driver in and wiggling at this juncture it appears to be an intermittent fault and I am told from Renfrewshire

I had the same problem last year with my 1999 Boxer. All I did was change evert fuse in the fuse box inside glove compartment(inside cab) had no probs since. Peter McNamara from Yorkshire

I am just asking where I can find the evert fuse 2? The year of my Peugeot Boxer. Thanks. Natina from Guinea

Had exactly the same problem with my V reg 2.5Turbo boxer this morning. Code light not going out and not starting despite turning over well. AA suggested that the issue was associated with the control module as it works by cutting off the fuel supply. His fix to get me started was to put key in ignition, turn ignition on to first stop (ie dash lights on but not cranking), then with key in this position, disconnect negative battery terminal, wait a few mins ,and reconnect battery - magically code light now off, turn key to crank and she fired immediately and no problems for drive back home (but it wouldn't start again once I got back home and retried. At least i know how to get her running to get to garage. He thought problem either with key, pick up coil in ignition switch, faulty wiring (none of which he thought likely because it started fine and was stable after battery disconnect and reconnect) or the control module - he reckogned that the immobiliser can be rewired to be overriden on some ages of the van. Hope this helps anyone faced with similar problem to at least get started and home safe. Dave Johnston from Hampshire

I have been told that with Peugeot diesels, brand new good quality oil does wonders for the warning lights. First change to a cheap oil; it will mix with the old oil, an wash it away. then change to a quality oil, and the warning lights should go off. So it is 2 oil changes. Paul from Warrington

Sianne Whitehead, Derbyshire

Peugeot 207

peugeot 207 SW estate, 1.6cc outdoor, 57 plate 2008. central locking has been fine up until today. I believe i didn't close the boot fully (closed it manually) as i had lots of shopping in my hand. Went back for more shopping and it wouldn't open. I thought perhaps the car was locked but all the doors opened fine. so i tried to lock the car and then unlock to see if i could reset everything. However the car doors would not lock (via fob) but the boot remained locked. I then tried to lock and unlock manually (key in drivers door) didn't work. The lights were not flashing like they usually do when i lock/unlock (either fob nor manually) but it was making the "cachung" sound the central locking usually makes. I then sat in the car and closed the door and locked myself in via the central locking lock on dashboard. this worked, my daughter couldn't get in from outside the vehicle. This also worked for children's locks. she again couldn't get it. So my car doors do lock, just not when i am on the outside! which is probably the most important time for them to be locked! The boot however remained locked the entire time, through everything i have tried. I tried making sure the boot was completely closed by pulling it from the inside (using the little handles on either side of the lock) It did close a little more so i do believe it wasn't shut fully initially. So i then repeated the above actions but same outcomes on all fronts, except manually the key worked to lock one of the car doors (drivers) but the boot remained locked and the other doors open. I then read online to put key in ignition and hold down the lock button for 10 secs. didn't change anything. I then read perhaps the signal of fob was low so to sit in car with fob close to steering wheel near sensor and try the boot opening key that way... no change. After this i then tried to manually re-lock drivers side as that worked once previously, it would not work a second time. I thought about opening boot from inside, perhaps once its open it would reset everything but don't know how i could go about that?! So tonight i have a locked boot but everything else is open. As it will only lock from the inside and as much as i love that car, im not sleeping in it!

Answers

Don't know if you have found a solution to your problem yet, I had a similar problem with a 206 sw. You may find that when you were loaded down with your shopping and opened the boot you inadvertently released the opener for the glass portion of the tailgate, there are two boot releases one in the centre opens the whole tailgate the other which is located to the right hand side of the first boot release. This one opens the glass section only. The solution is to activate the right hand boot release ( for the glass panel) open the glass panel get your fingers between the glass and metal lid and lift glass panel then close again. Now using the centre tailgate release open the main tailgate and close should solve the problem. Hope this makes sense and helps. Pete Phelps from Gloucestershire

Answer this question

Stuart Hurst, Lancashire

Peugeot 208

My wife drives this car - she has told me now that whilst everything looks ok on the Screen display, there is no air blowing when she turns on the fan - she can turn the temp up and down. turn on air con, change where it's meant to be blowing, but nothing comes out. Is this likely to be the air blower motor or a fuse?

Answers

I have same problem as Stuart Hurst, Lancashire. I drive a 152 DL Peogeot 208. This is the second 208 I have owned the other one was 131 DL. Both cars have very poor heater. You have to travel at least 10 miles before the heater hand actually move and I have to put the blower on to at least 5 before it even blows. Then it blows mostly cold air. Had it checked in both cars but to no avail. Its very frosty now in the mornings and if you leave the car running for say 10 minutes it still doesnt even heat slightly. Even when you are driving it seems to mist up inside. Love the 208 but this is very annoying especially in Winter. Margaretta Donegal from Donegal

I have had same problem. If you remove the grey panel on the passenger side that covers the air con unit, and look on the left behind or just in front of the next panel trim there is a grey wire and earth wire in a connecting block. This comes from the fuse box and is the live feed for the blower. The wires on the joining block are red and earth. I have found that this block over heats on full power and the wires are black at the connection It is likely the terminals have overheated and not contacting properly so using more power to jump the small gap,arcing. I have had the whole system checked and they couldn't find this connecting block has it is hidden away . This can be replaced with a new block and triming the wires or just with a crimped connector Will cost around £90 to replace, bit you are looking at £250 to replace the wires from the blower has it cannot be accessed easily. I only noticed this was the fault has it was red hot when I has another look for this connector. This is the likely cause or the connector at the blower. But if the red and earth are discoloured then this. Is your fault Peugeot would replace the unit at £450 but that is not needed. A good electricical garage will fix this just show them the connection has the wiring diagrams that are provided by Peugeot fail to show this clearly. Steve from Nottinghamshire

That connection is on the right not left, sorry. Lift carpet and will see grey and earth wires from fuse box. They are not with the main wiring. Steve from Nottinghamshire

If it's not heating then the control module behind the blower has gone most likely. £35 USB for a new one. And 20 mins labour. Can do yourself, it's hidden between a gap on the passenger side floor and inside the cold air feed from the filters. Looks like a black box, 2"by 3" twist anticlockwise band feed thru the pipe and wires behind the panel trim. Steve from Nottinghamshire

Nice to know I’m not the only one who has this problem. I don’t have an answer but my 308SW Sport 1.6HDi (09 plate) has been doing this for some time. Local Dealer had it in a couple of times, once for a week, but couldn’t find fault - said it may be something to do with the battery level, but this was clutching a straws a bit I think. Surely something else would show up first before the ABS/ESP warning lights and a ’Brake System Failure’ message keeps appearing!! Dealer has said there is nothing wrong with the brakes and they will still work, but it is still worrying that the warning keeps coming up, especially for unsuspecting passengers. Something must be causing it. I’ve also started to get a strange smell through the ventilation system, AC on or off and re-circulation switched on or off. It does have an over heated brake smell to it, and is more promanent when starting the car than when braking. Any ideas? Paul from Dorset

Had a similar problem on my 307SW. Turned out to be the rear wheel hub sensor mounts had become corroded and were sitting too far from the hub. Hub has a magnet that passes the sensor, if the distance becomes too great the sensor fails to detect the magnet passing it and so the fault symptom. Removed sensor and cleaned up corrosion, so that sensor sat virtually touching hub, problem solved. Hope this helps.

Peugeot 807 2006

Does anyone know how to put a Peugeot 807 automatic gear box into neutral? Ours has broken down and we have to tow it to the garage.

Answers

Hi. Forget about getting it into neutral as you should never tow an automatic car. You will cause more damage. Have your car put on a low loader to get it to its destination. Steve Bing from Essex

Turn the ignition on then you should be able to move the lever into the NEUTRAL position, BUT don't tow it far, use a LOW LOADER. CJ from Surrey

Hi folks can anyone shed any light on y my speedo and also my mileadge doesn't work . At all wen van is moving . Thanks guys col .

Answers

I had same problem, the speedo drive is electric on mine, a small rotary gear driven generator is fitted in the top of the differential, held in place with one bolt, if you remove the unit wit the ignition switched on and turn this does the speedo work. ? if so the electrical part is ok, the drive is by 2 plastic gears these are cheap to buy, unfortunately the gear inside the differential is not easy to get to. depending on what transmission is fitted, some have a removable diff carrier than can be removed once the engine is pulled forward and the drive shafts removed. the gear just clips in. you can feel the gear inside if its loose with a small finger.
