I lost the pairing with bluetooth. I've tried with many other mobiles and cant pair although they see each other. We have spoken to dealers and they want us to bring it in. The option is to update the software at a cost and cant guarantee that it will work. One dealer said that the radio for 308 doesnt have a pin code if you disconnect the battery. IS THIS TRUE ?

Can anyone help? I have the warning fuel cap not locked keep flashing up on my car. However when you check it it`s locked. I took it into Peugeot and was told it`s fault code P2408, it cost me £84 for this, the parts they want to order are almost £200. Is there a cheaper way? It says on the quote it's a faulty sensor

Answers

What year is your car? Within reason contact Peugeot UK regards this part, if the car is a couple of years old they may change it FOC, other than that take the cap off with the key in place, spray WD 40 into the locking chamber (where your key goes in), also where the connectors are visible.

Hello, I have a Peugeot 308 Sportium 1.6, it has the vti engine. Two days ago I noticed as soon as I started the car there was a noise coming from the engine which then went away. After some investigation I think it is either the friction wheel or the water pump and I am also getting a noise like a light squeal. Could anybody please confirm if I am on the right track to solving this? The car drives great apart from this, thanks.
