The red stop light came on in my Peugeot 207 CC so I filled up with oil and let it cool. It was making a noise from the engine whilst stationary with the engine off. After filling up with oil, a message appeared saying temperature too high. Is this the water coolant? I`m not sure how serious this is, but loathe to go to rip off Peugeot garage.

How do you stop the roof from rattling? It is starting to get on my nerves.
It is most likely that the lock mechanism is not pulling the roof tight enough. Remove the 2 Torx screws in the plastic roof lining just in front of the roof hinges. Pull the roof lining down at the front just enough to get a Torx socket and ratchet in. You will see a bracket with 3 large Torx screws. Mark the outline of the bracket with a pencil to establish a reference point. Loosen the 3 screws and push the bracket towards the rear of the car a bit at a time. Bit of trial and error from now on. Tighten the 3 screws and push the headlining back until it clips into place. (leave the screws off for the time being) Drive the car and if the creaking has stopped you can put the 2 screws back. If it is still creaking repeat the process. You might have to this operation on both sides. - Paul Siddall from England
Not England/ Guernsey channel islands. I had a rattle in roof on the passenger side for two years, which drove me mad. I tried everything to stop it, but now I have found the problem. 1.Open roof half way eg. front of roof now vertical. The vertical trim each side of rear window is now in the horizantal position. 2.I found that this trim clips into place, mine was not fully clipped in. A firm push at bottom of trim towards rear of car and trim clicked into place. Rattle gone! Could also appy to the driver’s side. Good luck. - Colin Riou from Guernsey

Has anyone cured the rattling roof in a Peugeot 207 CC? When driving I thought it was in the boot but when I pressed the headlining the rattle stopped. I love the car but can`t stand the rattle. Please help?
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. At the bottom of the trim I pushed firmly towards the rear of car, then heard a loud click as the trim slotted into place. The result was no more rattles. 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

My 2008 Peugeot 207 CC is displaying and beeping the message Roof Operation Incomplete with the orange triangle warning sign. The roof goes up and down fine and when I close it it says Roof Operation Complete, BUT then the beeping and roof operation incomplete warnings start over again! Has anyone else had this problem? I would really appreciate any ideas of how to fix it. Thanks.
I only had this problem once and found it was due to trying to close the roof when the car wasn’t on flat ground. I reversed onto level ground and the roof closed another half inch, although it had already appeared to be fully closed. - Barbara Simmonds from England

My Peugeot 207 CC’s clutch pedal is sticking flat to the floor but can be pulled back up. It can be put in gear but the engine stalls. Is it hydraulics maybe and is this an expensive job? Thanks. (Diesel)
The exact same thing happened to me as I was approaching a roundabout and I stalled as I couldn’t get it into 1st gear. It turned out to be the clutch master or the slave cylinder had snapped, I can’t remember which one lol. The part is about £40 plus labour. - Adrian Jennings from Torfaen

Hi, I have got a Peugeot 207CC and it feels like I bought the worst car ever! Three weeks ago my depollution faulty light came on, so it went to the garage and had no fault apart from my timing chain which was then subsequently changed. I have had the car back 3 weeks and my depollution fault light has come back on. Also when I accelerate it makes the loudest noise and the engine sounds like it is struggling to run. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? It’s already cost me £500 to fix the timing chain! Thank you. (Sport)
Yes, I had that fault, which apparently means a number of things associated with the fuel system. In my case they simply replaced the fuel filter and so far no problems. That was the cheapest thing for them to change, but I believe the next thing would have been the fuel pump. - David Banbury from Somerset

The climate control LCD screen on my Peugeot 207 CC is no longer working. A new dealer supplied unit is £370 +VAT + programming to the car. If I buy a used unit from a salvage yard will it have to be programmed to the car before it will work? (coupe)
Have you tried holding a torch to the LCD panel? I’ve had it before where the back light has gone (just a 3 quid light bulb), so the writing could only be seen in daylight or with a torch on it. - Luke Biggs from Essex

My Peugeot 207 CC`s retractable car roof doesn`t seem to work, the sign comes up mechanical faulty. Is there anything I can do, trial and error to see if I can fix it without taking it to the dealers? Any advice will be helpful. Thank you very much.
Hi, is the mesh screen in the boot pulled forward and in its slots? - Bob Moffat from Lincolnshire
Hello, yes the mesh is pulled in its correct slots. The display still says mechanical fault. All I did was I accidentally pressed the windows button, which seemed to lock the roof’s button. A solution would be wonderful without taking to the dealer as they are charging so much. Thank you gratefully. - Summer White from London
My roof stopped working, turned out it was the battery as I always do short runs. We took it out for a long run, which charged the battery and then it worked after that! - Salsa Rich from England

My car is a Peugeot 207 sport CC convertible. I have a noise coming from the front of my engine and I have been told that it may be the camshaft. Is this a big and costly job to put right? Can anyone give me an idea as to what I could possibly expect?
Hi Susan, had the same problem with my wifes 07 plate. However the garage discovered that the problem was worn cam shaft bolts and it was done under warranty as there had been a recall on later models. It would have been a very expensive job. Kind regards - Bob Moffat from Lincolnshire

I bought a Peugeot 207 CC 2 months ago and all was good for a week. Then I started having a problem. On the dash when you turned it on it read oil okay, then later on in the day I turned it on again and this time it read "oil ----". I have taken it to 4 different garages and they all say different things. Now the dealer has given me a another 207CC and after just one day we have the same problem,"oil----" has just come on. Now on the first car we had various ideas what it could be but none resolved it. Please can anyone help? (GT)
Hello Kent. Sometimes the oil reading does show a flashing -- 3 years ago when I bought the 207cc for my daughter I went back straight to the dealer when she told me that the oil was flashing and until today it depends on the angle where the car is parked, the outside temperature and the time between engine startups. Ours sometimes shows a flashing, but do not be worried, if there’s an real issue with the oil level you will hear a loud beep (that annoying one when the fuel reaches reserve) and a CHECK OIL LEVEL on the multifunction display followed by a triangle that doesn’t come off from the gauges until it’s reset by Peugeot mechanics when you take it for servicing. That happened once when I did an engine oil flushing and the genius mechanic forgot to add an extra 0.25 liter of oil as per manual. Then, after replenishing it, we waited for a few minutes so the oil could go down again, we checked the dipstick, the level was perfect, we started the engine and the warning message disappeared :) 60.000 miles so far. This flashing oil ---- often happens, but there’s nothing to worry about. It’s actually written on the owners manual as well. Hopefully I could help. Cheers! - Victor Carneiro from Brazil

My wife`s Peugeot 207 CC GTI has the red leather trim on the dash. It just seems to be stuck over the original black dashboard. The red trim is coming unstuck and curling back and the stitching is coming apart on the top left hand side. It looks very unsightly. Is it possible just to buy the red trim? Peugeot are quoting £2,000 for a whole new dashboard top. Can anyone help please?Regards.
I cannot help Bob as I have the same problem with my 207. I have just signed up with MyPeugeot to see if the could help but the Customer Relations Manager has never heard of the problem. Despite the fact that I have found 5 identical problems on different forums in 10 minutes. Keep me informed. Thanks - Janet McGown from Surrey
Hi Janet, just had a letter back from Peugeot HQ at Coventry ref the red trim problem. Basically they say the car is out of the 3 yr warranty and some cars of this age may display similar symptoms at some stage. They can’t assist any further. Regards - Bob Moffat from Lincolnshire

I purchased my Peugeot 207 CC a few weeks ago with 20,000 miles on the clock and I noticed today that the trip computer that shows the range keeps changing up and down. I assumed that it was adjusting because of the different speeds I was driving. Also current consumption does not stay constant and seems to be continually searching. The distance remaining to be travelled just has white dashes with no information at all. The manual says that if dashes are displayed continuously while driving in place of the digits to contact a Peugeot dealer. I will do that but has anyone had the same problem or know what it is?

When I turn my Peugeot 207 CC`s engine on a warning comes up that my remote control battery is flat and it`s the same with my spare key.

I called into Halfords and the man said I might need a code but he wasn’t really sure. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
It needs to be re-initialised. There are instructions in your owners manual. I don’t have mine with me at work otherwise I would copy it here. - Kerri from Australia.

The glow plug dash board light on my Peugeot 207 CC 112 bhp diesel 1598 CC has not come on since the garage steam-cleaned my engine, after fitting a faulty oil seal which caused a major oil leak. The garage says it can’t have as it doesn’t have one. I know that`s not true as I have been driving this car for 2 years and have used it to start my car when it goes off. Can anyone with a 2011 207CC tell me if they have a light on the left hand side of the speedometer, which comes on when the car is started and goes off after a while, so that you can start the car by turning the key to the second stop?

My Peugeot 207cc (2008) suddenly doesn’t want to start from cold unless I rev the engine. It’s just had a full service but annoyingly behaved itself even though they kept it overnight to see the problem. Otherwise it drives well. There was another owner on this website with the same problem and someone came back with a few ideas but most of them were checked as part of a full service / MOT. So is there an owner out there who has had the problem actually solved and if so what was it?
Hi yer. I’ve had the same problem on mine. I’ve tried dipping the clutch, that worked for a short spell so now I just dip the accerlaration pedal down a bit. Once it runs it turns off and on fine. Hope that’s helps a bit - David Reed from Northamptonshire

I have an annoying message on my Peugeot 207 CC`s display " sidelamp bulb(s) faulty" which keeps beeping and showing up. It`s strange as ALL of the sidelamps work perfectly! It happens on starting up and at regular intervals, sometimes when hitting a bumpy road surface and even when the lights are not on. I imagine a sensor is faulty. Does anyone have any ideas please? (thp)
Hi Roy, I had the same message from my 207 cc and it was in fact the right rear bulb that was broken. But if I tapped it gently it worked again for a while. This could explain your situation. I suggest you look at those 5 W/12 Volt bulbs. Maybe also the front ones because the message is somewhat misleading. Best regards - Anders from Sweden
Hi Anders, I had exactly the same problem on my wife’s 207 cc, I changed the bulb and this fixed it. Regards. - Bob Moffat from Lincolnshire.

I have a Peugeot 207 CC Sport. I have had it for two weeks and the car has had a new exhaust fitted which has a deeper noise, a little like blowing from the tail pipe. I have noticed the tail pipe is wider on the 207 CC Sports model, would this explain the deeper blowing type noise, a little like a bore exhaust but not as bad?

I can only get rid of if this by pressing ’escape’ everytime I start the car, which is getting really annoying! Any ideas how I can stop this happening please?

Hi, I have a Peugeot 207 CC. When you close the passenger door it locks the whole car itself straight away. It will even do this with the ignition key in and when the engine is still running. This became very frightening when, miles away from home outside a supermarket, I put my 18 month old daughter in the passenger side while the engine was running and shut the door. Bingo - one trapped baby! It always does it and I don`t know what to do, possibly a full lock reset procedure if one exists. Does anyone have any ideas please? Cheers. (207 CC 1.6 Sport)

My Peugeot 207 CC does not want to start when it’s cold. It takes 3-4 times to start, then I have to rev it and it spits and chugs. If I start it from warm then it’s fine and it drives fine once it has warmed up. I`ve taken it to two garages now and they can`t find anything wrong but obviously there is. Any ideas would be gratefully received. Any suggestions?
1. Change your air filters... fuel filter, oil filter. 2. Check for holes in the hosing. 3. Check spark plugs. 4. Check exhaust is not loose at the manifold. Do you have any smoke from the rear? Sad cases... piston wear... bent valves. Put it in for a service - a j from England

My wife`s Peugeot 207 CC had a timing chain fault at 18,000 miles, 6 months out of warranty but within an extended warranty period. Peugeot said it was fair wear and tear so not covered. I know Mini have done a recall for a tensioner and chain problem and as it is the same engine I thought Peugeot might do the same. Does anybody have any info about a recall on this engine? Has anybody had a similar problem that Peugeot have accepted responsibility for? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Mike. I bought my 207 four years ago and have so far spent £1500 on repairs for the catalytic converter failing, and the problem with the anti pollution system. This week the engine has started knocking and my mechanic assures me the timing chain has gone, I have done less than 40,000 miles. Without question it has been the most unreliable and expensive car I have bought, needless to say it’s going and I won’t be having another Peugeot. Customer Support has been rubbish. Good luck - Alison Lee from England
This car has a timing belt not a chain, anyway the belt lasts at least 80k - why do you want to change it? Chucri Kayal from France
Same happened to me, really noisy and engine running badly two weeks after purchase, car only 3 years old with low mileage. It was a failed tentioner on timing belt and luckily the garage agreed to have it fixed for me. The cost of the repair was £458 for parts + labour (which I imagine was VERY high as it needed collecting and transporting to garage and then whole engine out of car! Rreally pleased that I bought the extended warrantee!) - Roy Wareham from Kent
The same just happened to me on my Peugeot 207CC with only 57000km on the clock. The Peugeot specialist has just told me that it may be part of the recall that was done on this model for this exact problem. I will find out tomorrow if it is and if so, I will not have to pay for it. I will keep you posted. And I’m sorry, Chucri, it has a timing chain, not a belt... Marc dos Santos from South Africa
