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?

Hi. I have an RT4 Multimedia system in my Peugeot 207 CC which stopped working about 6 months ago. The garage advised that the only solution was to send it back to France to have it re-programmed. This was done, but now I have a message on the display, "Emergency and breakdown calls deactivated". 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
My 207cc has just had timing chain done, back at Peugeot. It had smoke coming from the exhaust and failed its MOT, due to too much CO2. I had to pay for timing done as was not aware of recall. Jenifer Watson from England

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)

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?

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?

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

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 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
