My daughter has recently bought a Peugeot 107 Automatic (5 doors) from a reputable dealer. It takes a few seconds changing gears from 1st to 2nd and when it does there is a reluctance for the car to "slow down" as if something is dragging it. Is this normal? I am just worried with the amount of fast and careless drivers she may find it difficult to make turns on the main road or roundabouts. Thank You

Fitted both new drive shafts. When cranking engine, a knocking sound can be heard, only once. Only left side axle is turning when in gear and clutch released. ( car's front wheels jacked up) Seems like right side drive shaft not engaging. * Want to know where knocking sound is coming from on starting * Why the axle is not turning Thank you in anticipation.

Started car and seemed noisier than usual, then every time I used the brakes the engine would cut out and all the lights came on (STOP, engine, battery, etc..). After driving for about 10min car doesn't cut out, but car still noisier than usual. No smell of burning, or any other unusual smells, no lights on dash that shouldn't be on. On arriving home opened bonnet, no visible steam or other leaks. Checked for oil patches on floor several hours later - nothing. Why is my car making this noise and why does it cut out?????
I have just been advised by my mechanic friend that it is probably the water pump, if not the alternator. He is going to take a look at it next week and confirm which it is. Isobel from Monmouthshire

When I bought my 2007 Peugeot it was fitted with an after market radio. I didn't like the look of it plus it wouldn't remember the radio stations and wouldn't turn on with the ignition. I bought an original radio for the car and re fitted it. However now it's fitted, I'm having the same problem. It's not turning on with the ignition and it's resetting the settings. Help how can solve this? Thanks

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
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.

I've bought a Peugeot 107 Allure and for some reason when the engine has been turned off the stereo doesn't remember settings. Like bass and treble settings and last settings used like it would reset to the radio even if I wasn't on that before I switched off the engine. Is this normal?

Hi i have a Peugeot 107 06 plate it is an automatic I've had it for about 6 months, the last month or so it has been making a beeping noise sounds like its coming from the drivers area however nothing shows of flashes on the dashboard. It mainly starts beeping after driving for about 25mins and doing longer journeys, it used to beep for a while then stop but recently the beeping has been continuos its not the seatbelt noise as have checked and doesn't sound like the "beep" noise. Today was when the beeping noise was continuous was driving for about an hour and after 20-30mins it started and didn't stop for about 40mins i slowed down and done under 50mph and it seemed to stop. Was just wondering if anyone had any idea what it might be and feedback would be great, many thanks!

When you turn the ignition on the windows will go up and down and the heating will work, but when you actually start the car the fuse blows straight away so the windows wont work and the heating wont either. Any ideas why

Hi Been to see a lovely 107 tonight. Only one problem with it... The engine management light is on (orange). The current owner has said it's to do with some sort of sensor in the exhaust and the car is booked in with a garage to fix the problem later this week. Apparently it will only cost around £30. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem??? Or am I being led up the garden path?
Kim, the explanation is feasible.. the lambda sensor is in the exhaust and affects the emissions and fuel adjustment values.. it would give an error message to the ECU which would light up the EML.. and it'd cost abt £30 to replace. However.. EML lights up for a multitude of reasons.. I'd wait til it's sorted and then check it out. If you're AA or RAC, contact them and ask about getting them to inspect and report.. it may cost you money but if the car is not good, it will save you money... Remember that French cars do not have good reputation for electrics.. just go into French vehicles section on here and see how many people get probs with electrics. Not saying to walk away.. but get it checked properly first. R Evans from Caerphilly

Can you tell me if these cars have a steering lock please because if they do mine's not working and I need to get it back to the garage. Thanks Carol
yes, Carol, your car will have a steering lock.. after you take the key out you may still be able to turn the steering wheel a little in either direction .. until it clicks.. then it's locked. If your steering wheel can make a complete revolution without locking.. it's not working. R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi, my cars quite old so it leaks a bit. I got these damp crystal bags to help with condensation. But today I was trying to see if the bags needed replaced and I stupidly opened it. The damp crystal went everywhere! Including down the gear stick. The cover is quite tight so I'm guessing only a couple got in. I checked if it still went into gear and it does. Will it be ok or is it more serious?
Kay, I believe that you mean that the crystals have gone past the gaiter that is fixed to the console at the bottom end and elasticated around the top end where it goes around the gearstick itself. If this is the case then none of the crystals would go INTO the gearbox from there so no worries there.. however, those crystals can be caustic.. they burn.. and may eventually cause some damage to the metal parts that are below that gaiter, even though you say that only a few went in .. (if any went in at all).. you usually can take hold of the gaiter either side and near the bottom and pull it upwards to remove the gaiter housing from the console,.. that will give you open access to what is underneath.. and if there are crystals there, they'll be liquid by now.. wipe them up and clip the gaiter back into place.

I keep getting water in the boot. I have had the lights resealed but is still happening. Also now I have found the back passenger footwell is soaking wet. There is no obvious signs of where the water is getting in. Can anyone help?
This was happening to me also - after re-sealing the boot frame and taking out the back lights and re-sealing we discovered the water was actually getting in via a faulty seal on the rear brake light situated at the top of the back window. Unscrewed light and sealed area, replaced the light and the leak seems to have stopped. cathy from Antrim
My daughter had the same problem with her 107 62 plate. We ended up getting both door seals replaced as the rear brake light (upper) was done first. She only bought it cash £4k from Arnold Clark in Northwich in May this year and we have had nothing but trouble. The first big issue was getting it into 1st and reverse, ended up getting the clutch replaced - sorted! Then we had the leak issues - sorted! Front window screen replaced as a result of a minor chip ended-up into a huge crack! I had to pay £75 excess through my Insurance. To top it all, we are now experiencing problems with the central locking as the key fob is not opening/locking the doors all the time. Don't know what's causing it?? I just wish I'd visited Arnold Clarke and checked the car out beforemy daughter handed over the money!! Lessons learnt! Mark Cox from Merseyside

Brake lights operate when ignition is off. Not a 'problem', as such, but should this be happening?
Mine operate when ignition is off.. Nissan X-trail,.. but ONLY when I press the brake pedal.. if yours operate without pressing pedal you have a problem.. possibly maladjusted switch.. otherwise, leave alone. R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi how much oil do I need to fill a Peugeot 107 after emptying it
The 1.0l petrol takes three litres and the 1.4 diesel takes 3.8 litres.. this will differ if you are replacing the oil filter too. Put in 3 litres first.. let it settle then put a bit more at a time until the disptick level indicates a level between low and high.. do not go over the high mark.. it causes more damage than leaving it just below low !

I have a 107 62 plate. While driving home tonight, every time I breaked both indicator lights & rear fog light lit up on the dashboard, all at the same time. Also, when I was indicating (both left or right) & breaking at the same time, the indicator lights on the dashboard flashed VERY quickly. The car passed it's first MOT at the end of Oct & the 3 year warranty ran out at the beginning of Nov. Does anyone have any ideas as to what the fault might be & will it be expensive to fix? Thanks in advance

Hello, my 107 cut out as I started it up on a slight downward slope, the engine went dead, then sprang back to life as I got onto the flat, but the engine light came on, and now won't go off! It's running perfectly well, but I am worried to take it far! Any suggestions as to what it might be? I have only just had it serviced!

I have a Peugeot 107. Whenever I brake hard the wheels seem to lock and the car skids on. I asked the agent in Malta and was told this was due to the ABS and you have to let go of the brake pedal and press the brake again for it to work well. I found this strange as in an emergencyoine does not have the time to do this. Could you please suggest what I should do. Thanks, Denis Micallef
