Hi. My Peugeot 207 CC`s passenger door is playing up and I’m just wondering if anyone has experienced the same problem and what you did to fix it? When I use my key fob it will unlock/lock all the doors in my car except for the passenger door which can only be opened by the key or from inside the car. I was under the impression that none of the doors would lock if one door was still opened, but my boot and driver’s door will lock regardless of what the passenger door is doing. Can anyone suggest what may be happening? Thank you.

Answers

Hi, Sounds like you need a new door lock mechanism, it comes in a complete kit from the main dealer. It went on mine but was still under warranty, luckily. Not sure of cost. Richard from Warwickshire

My remote fob won`t lock my Peugeot 207 CC. The battery has been replaced and the boot won`t open. The roof is working fine and the key opens doors and starts the engine fine. There have been no warning signs to say there is a problem, Any ideas please?

Answers

Hi Jayne, Welcome to the team with the same problem. I have seen (and also posted) this question several times on this site. If you keep the remote very close to and just below the steering wheel and press "open trunk" it may work. My remote does. This tells me that the right "code" is sent but the signal from the remote is to low or the reciever's antenna does not pick up the signal under "normal" (from the outside of the car) conditions. I do not have the solution to the problem but I know we are quite a few with the same problem. One day, somebody will hopefully tell us. Anders from Sweden

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.

Answers

Hi, This sounds like the same problem I had with mine. The red light came on, temp gauge went to hot and and STOP light came on - luckily the car was under a warranty. The car went back to the main dealer and after 5 days was returned, fixed. On inspection, the Sump had been off and I was told that a sensor within the sump needed to be replaced. If you’re having to repair/pay for this yourself, it’s going to cost a lot. So I’d suggest that you go to a local independent who you can trust! Richard from Warwickshire

Answer this question

Shaun Kenyon, Yorkshire

Peugeot 207 CC 2008

How do you stop the roof from rattling? It is starting to get on my nerves.

Answers

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

I took mine to several garages then in the end a good lubrication to all accessible areas sorted it. Apparently it’s the plastic squeaking together. Sharon Glasspool from England

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

Lauren Riddle, Hertfordshire

Peugeot 207 CC 2008

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)

Answers

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

Hi, if this is a diesel car (1.6 turbo 110hp) depending on the mileage the FAP fluid may be empty, which will need replacing at £200 ish (not at a main dealer otherwise you’re looking at £1000!) Richard from Warwickshire

Peugeot 207 CC 2007

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)

Answers

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

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.
