Six months ago I purchased my Peugeot 207 CC. I`ve taken out an extended warranty. My roof would not fold completely into the boot and I`ve been told, although everything apart from the hinges is covered, if I want my money back and go somewhere else I can. They are working on trying to find the problem and have said if I want my money back I can cancel the warranty. Please can anyone tell me what are my chances of the hinges failing and if they do what kind of expense am I looking at? Thank you.

I thought my Peugeot 207 CC would have an SOS and a roadside assistance button (with Peugeot symbol on it). I have looked under the cd player and on the driver`s side, (by the window operation buttons and on the steering wheel), for any buttons resembling such an operation, but cannot find any. I rang my dealer and they said I should have a red button with a phone symbol on it, but there was no sight of that button either. Can you tell me if my car is meant to have these buttons, or not? If it does, then please tell me where I can find it, because it doesn’t appear to be anywhere in the car? Thank you. (1.6 VTI (120bhp) allure)
This link will be useful to identify the button. http://www.peugeot.com/en/technology/#connected-services If fitted its £910 with satnav otherwise £715. The button should be on the dashboard, either in a little red lion on a black button or a RED SOS button, press for 3 seconds to call, in a crash it will call out automatically.

The outside temperature is generally mid 25. The temperature gauge in the digital display of my Peugeot 207 CC intermittently, (not permanently), goes to minus and moves alll over the show. When this happens the aircon blows hot air / doesn`t work. The display also comes up with an error message - risk of ice! Is this a faulty theromstat and where it is located?
Sounds like the thermostat needs replacing... I have bought the 2009 207cc, mine keeps flashing in the console , but not what yours is doing - a j from England
Hi Craig, I had exactly the same problem that you are facing, it took me months to solve it, at the end it was simple. The wire that connects from the passenger side door, all the way under the mirror in your case, is likely to be broken. Not the sensor. I had to change the sensor twice before the geniuses in Peugeot found out that was just the wire that was broken from inside. (After I showed them where it was misconnecting) They simply cut the wire from the mirror to the dashboard, past the door brackets and replaced them with a new one. Then welded and melted some rubber to cover the copper wiring, a really nice job since I thought they would just cover it with tape... To give you a hint if the wire is really broken, squeeze/shake the wire tubing that passes the wires from the dashboard to the door. If that is the problem, the temperature sensor doesn’t need to be changed, just the wire from the sensor. Cheers! - Victor Carneiro from Brazil

My bluetooth works well in my Peugeot 207 CC at low speed in the suburbs. However, at high speed (110km) on the highway it starts to drop out. This is a problem as I am a sales rep. Does anyone know of anything I can do to help the situation? I have taken it back to Peugeot but they did nothing to help the problem. I also took it back to the warranty service mechanic but they did not believe me so I asked them to take the car for a drive at 110km but they did not want to do that. If anyone knows what I can do to fix the problem I would be very grateful. Maybe changing the bluetooth like amplification of the signal?
For some reason the software is not powerful enough in your car to transmit the signal. Either the receiver or transceiver is having packet loss or bandwidth thinning. Basically losing the signal or breaking the bandwidth to your hardware. Does this only happen when the top is down? If it does this makes sense. The fluttering will affect the bluetooth. Options: Buy more powerful software in your car. To signal it.

On our Peugeot 207 CC Convertible Sport automatic 2007 (07) 22,700 miles, the ABS light came on when in reverse then and stayed on. We were told that the ABS Ecu was faulty. The unit was sent away to be sorted and replaced in the vehicle. It has done less than 50 miles and now we have the same problem again. I have read that many of these Peugeot 207s have thee same problem which has been rectified in different ways eg. clean or renew sensors, new brake light switch, the faulty connection of the Ecu to it`s terminals also by an upgrade of the ABS software. Is this software upgrade necessary and if so where is it available? Do peugeot know of this? This si costing us a fortune for ABS and de-pollution lights staying on, also the wrong fuel pump being fitted at the factory! Can anyone help? (Sport automatic)

My Peugeot 207 CC`s engine is not getting warm enough for the heater to blow warm air into the cabin. I`m having to leave it ticking over for 30 minutes, then the oil and water temperature gauges get some sort of reading and it blows warm. Could it be the possiblly wrong thermostat or a sticking one, but surely temperature gauges would read something after 20 minutes?
I would call this an efficient engine. Sounds like your work journey is less than 20 minutes and your cold feeling cold there lol. It’s the engine warm up time... normal. With anti freeze this may extend at cold start - s d from England

Hi, I had to drive through flood water today and straight after my Peugeot 206 CC started juddering, I had a cat converter and anti pollution fault and the engine light lit up on the dashboard. I drove it home and even though I had my foot right down on the accelerator it wouldn’t go much faster than 30 mph. Could there be water in the fuel tank or another problem? If water in the tank what should I do? Thanks for any help.
You have either water or fuel in your catalytic converter. Clogging a thing they call Cops. Catalytic converters are used in internal combustion engines to reduce harmful carbon monoxide emissions. They also break down nitrogen oxides to nitrogen and oxygen and hydrocarbons into water and carbon dioxide. Catalytic converters accomplish these tasks by causing chemical reactions with the exhaust emissions as they flow through. The catalyst used most often in converters are platinum, rhodium or palladium, as these are very reactive metals. The core of the converter is often ceramic or stainless steel. They are formed like a honeycomb to increase the surface area, which increases the effectiveness of the catalyst. Many problems can arise with catalytic converters, which can affect how the engine runs - a j from England

We have a Peugeot 207 CC convertible but when the roof is on there is a noisy rattle/ knocking coming from the boot area behind the driver`s seat. We have had new boot struts fitted, but the problem persists. Any suggestions as to the problem?
I have the same. Open your boot and at the back you will see a flat-ish black plastic bar facing you, running across the boot as part of the roof mechanism. There’s 2 screws in this bar, and my money is on the one on the right being loose. Tighten it and job sorted. It will come loose again, and you will have to keep tightening it, but at least it’ll stop the rattle for a bit - Kat from Lancashire
Hi, buy some lock tight thread locker from Halfords, this will save the repeated problem, and you can still undo the screw/bolt when needed - a j from England

My Peugeot 207 CC`s carpet is wet on the floor at the rear behind the passenger seat. Does anyone have any idea where this might be coming from? I would appreciate any advice on where to start looking, thank you.
Hi, mine is also wet on the left side rear seat carpet. The leak it due to poor door/roof seals. You will discover that the carpet is actually wetter than you think. Your sound proofing underlay under the carpet will be totally soaked. You are best removing the passenger seat and then pulling the rear carpet back to get a good luck where the water is coming from. Mine slowly seeps in from 2 different places. Temp solution - I have a 4mm drainage hole drilled in the floor so when the water comes in it then drains out. Also I have fitted some damp proof membrane under the carpet so the carpet does not actually touch the wet floor, works perfectly. I had to dry my wet carpet area first by placing a 2kw heater in the car for 5 hours with the door closed. Success in the end though. Had endless problems with this car - Phil Moran from England
You can have the door and roof seals replaced, this will stop the leakage also. Save you drilling your car’s floor. When sunroof seals go, vaseline can make the rubber more supple. I am buying a 2009 207, and have been told, the seals may need replacing one day. See Peugeot for the professional thing to do - a j from England

My Peugeot 207 CC has a broken rear exhaust bracket. Do I need to buy a new rear box to repair it or can I just buy a bracket? (1600 gt)
Hi, mine broke on the exhaust bracket too when it had only covered 12000 miles. Peugeot dealers said exhaust is not covered under warranty, bandits! I think they wanted about 400 pound for new system. Try a local garage who will be able to weld the bracket back on the the exhaust, expect to pay around 30 - 40. The bracket snaps due its poor design in the first place - Phil Moran from England
Hi, you can get a new bracket for about 20 pounds, from looking on line, you can buy just the bracket. Don’t be told you need new back box etc, just a way to make more money out you, simple to fit as well - Gary Risk from Hampshire

My Peugeot 207 CC has the red leather trim. It just seems to be stuck over the original black dashboard. This is coming unstuck and curling back. Has anyone else had the problem and found a solution as it is difficult to actually get at it under the slope of the windscreen? Peugeot garages don’t have any ideas.
Hi Chris, wy wife’s stiching on the left hand side of the dash has rotted and the front of the red trim is peeling back from the top near the windscreen.

I have a Peugeot 207 CC hdi 1.6. After driving for about 200 miles there is a lot of blue smoke. I pull over, switch off the car and wait 5 minutes and start it up and the smoke has cleared. Can anybody tell me what can be wrong?
Because your engine is burning oil. That, in turn, means your engine has worn valve guides, piston rings. An engine that burns a lot of oil (more than a quart in 500 miles) is an engine that needs to be overhauled. Normal oil consumption should be a quart or less in 1500 miles. Most newer engines consume less than half a quart of oil between oil changes (every 3000 miles). So if your engine is burning oil, it’s essentially worn out and needs to be repaired. An engine that burns a lot of oil will also eventually foul the spark plugs. Thick, black oily deposits build up on the plugs until they cease to fire. Then the engine misfires and loses power. Cleaning or changing the plugs may temporarily solve the problem, but sooner or later they’ll foul out again - a j from England

Ask what the damage is on the cam shaft. And why is it happening. Assess the damage, ask why is the damage happening? Is it the cam shaft design? Is an interacting component affecting the cam shaft?

I have just bought an 08 reg Peugeot 207 CC and am very pleased with it so far, apart from the roof making a very noisy rattling noise when it is closed. It’s under a three month warranty and I’m taking it in to the garage next week to be "diagnosed", but I`m curious to know if this is a common problem. It sounds as though something is loose in the roof closing mechanism and it’s driving me nuts. Can anyone help?
Hi, I have a 2008 gtcc and have had the car back for the same problem. It is adjustment of the roof and dry catches on the front fastenings. I have had it back to the dealers on 4 occasions, twice for the roof and climate control display plus automatic lights on all the time. At 25,000 miles on the clock and 4 years old I was told the gearbox was worn out and had to have a new one which, after threats and contacting BBC Watchdog, they agreed to replace as long as I paid the labour cost - £950. Now I have a warning on the display every time I start it saying the de-pollution system is faulty. It goes in on Tuesday as it has been diagnosed as a faulty cam sensor but I’m not convinced.
