Carol, East Lothian

Peugeot 207

I have recently purchased a 4 year old Peugot 207cc Automatic with 12,000 miles on the clock. It have now just developed a whine coming from the engine area. I have had two mechanics have a listen to it. One tells me it is a gearbox problem, but he did not work with automatic gear boxes. So took it to an automatic specialist who tells me it is an engine problem - not the gear box. Now booked it in with Peugot, who without looking at it, tell me it could be a fan belt problem. The car is under warranty for another 6 weeks and I desperately want to have it fixed before the warranty runs out. Has anyone experienced this problem? any help appreciated.

hi, i have a 2008 peugeot 207cc sport. can anyone tell me where the headlamp alignment adjusters are situated.? I need to raise the right side.

Answers

Check the bulbs are seated the correct way up. The faulty one is probably the side that shines too high up when the knurled adjustment knob to the right of the steering wheel (RHD cars), on the dash, is set to 0. i.e., it's probably the left that's been put in upside down or not seated correctly.

car not starting, starter motor ok, have got spark and fuel. Car was fine last night but would not start this morning. Called AA he thinks the timing has 'jumped', is this likely? car sounds like it is trying to start

Answers

i would not think timing would have jumped over night.when you say has got fuel you mean in the tank or to the engine. need to make shur fuel is getting pumped up to the engine. may be fully charge the battery aswell. i carnt see it being an immobiliser problem if you have a spark and fuel etc. could try checking comprssions are ok on the engine and maybe try a toestart. ithink it would be worth getting the engine fault codes checked first then this could point you in the right direction. jayboi from Cheshire

Hi, I was changing the break pads on my Peugeot when I snapped the brake fluid cable, the metal just above the screw connection to the calliper. I want to have a go at replacing the pipe and bleeding the system but have 3 questions before I begin. 1. Do I have to replace it as one complete cable or is there a join under the wheel arch? 2. Is it a fairly straightforward task or would I be best taking it to a garage? 3. Where would be a good place to get the cable and bleed kit from? Thanks for your help Scott

In relation to the problems the 206 had with its roof, do I REALLY need to extend the warranty on my 207cc?

peugeout 207 57 plate why does the computer say faulty power steering and faulty anti pollution when there is nothing wrong. It Keeps giving warning beeps and stating the problems on the dash board, but there is absolutely nothing wrong. It is very annoying as the beeps are constantly coming on

Answers

Hi Claire, We had this very recently on our 207 (59 plate) you might also see the ABS warning on the dash too. I Googled this problem and found it was quite common and a £1000.00 bill to boot... I went to a local garage gave the guy a drink and asked him to clear the fault codes showing. This worked for us so no more problems. Andy from Bristol

I am experiencing problems with the drivers door on my 207cc The door is excessively noisy when opening and closing and the hinge action is not smooth. There would appear to be a resistance in the hinge action although nothing obvious. Could the door have dropped slightly although this is not apparent . Also due to the usage of the car the door is opened and closed probably more than normal. Could it be wear of the hinge mechanism ?

Answer this question

Helen, Worcestershire

Peugeot 207

Out of the blue my ABS, power steering, traction control, speedo, anti pollution system and auto headlights have all gone faulty. Peugeot say this is two separate problems. My car is May 2010 and has only done 14,000 miles. The only thing that happened a few weeks before was I had a flat battery, but the car was fine for several weeks afterwards. Peugeot say the parts alone will be £1300 which seems horribly expensive. Has anyone else had the same problem and does the cost for the parts sound right?

Answers

I am having similar problems but with braking system, abs, power steering and pollution control. It's usually an ecu which is nearly £500 plus VAT, mine is still not fixed though. I took it to an independent dealer, the ecu was faulty and was replaced but problem came back so they have had to take it to the main dealer who have had it for 4 days so far. Peugeot electrics are not good and of course there's not a lot you can do, the labour charges will be high to if it`s a main dealer. Not good news, sorry Nigel bull from Nottinghamshire

Hi.., just had one of these in for repair last week with all of the same problems. Turned out to be the fuse-board under the bonnet was faulty. Remove this, disconnect the block connectors, & check for dirt or water ingress..., you'll probably find the brown coloured block on the box is discoulored. You can't repair the board, so replace it and you should be sorted, & it's not labour intensive as "Main dealers" would suggest. I work in an independent garage..., that's where you'll always get more help. Dave williams from Cumbria

That seems to be exactly what has happened to mine The independent has had to take it to the main dealer who failed to sort it but my man argued the case and eventually they looked at the fuse board. They actually replaced it free of charge as it was a fault in manufacture but apparently fuse boards are really far more expensive than they sound. It`s all taken over a week and still no car. Totally agree though, you get far better value from an independent Nigel bull from Nottinghamshire
