Hi i have a 04 407 1.6 i smelt plastic burning i can see the timing belt ??? At the side of the engine has burnt through the housing and only sits on the pulleys properly when reving up what is this and is it expensive

The centre panel which holds the radio and allows you to select the parameters has a faulty display light. Sometimes the display light is on but invariably it dims and you cant read Radio Stations, settings etc. I am told I need a complete new centre panel which is very expensive. Can anyone give me some advice please
My 407 is the same, especially if the cabin is warm. It might be fine when you fist drive off, even in cool weather, but it will fade away eventually. You can buy a replacement LCD panel (sits above the radio) on internet auction sites like E-Bay quite cheaply, around £40. There are even instructions on You Tube on how to remove and replace them. I'm thinking about it. Egryn from Gwynedd

Good day, I traded in a 407 for a 508. Both cars seem to use a lot of cooling fluid and need regular topping up. Is this normal? Most cars nowadays seem to go from service to service without needing to top up coolant.

My 407 always shows FOG LAMPS faulty. Now it is showing speed control faulty, side lamps, air pollution filter, sometimes it flashes up that all the tyres are flat, the passenger side window control switch has stopped and the heater is blowing cold on the left hand side. Now usually I would take to peugot to be diagnosedand it has always turned out to be a simple fuse gone and making the computer go crazy - obviously costing me a fortune. Anyone has ideas on what I should be looking at ?? Once the car starts running everything goes off and no more bleeping...... thanks Helen

Hi I have a coupe with full screen Sat nav and tel but ever time I press telephone key i comes up on screen "as poorly inserted sim". When you look through the various options you can see it has a network but it won't let me highlight it as an option. The bluetooth on my phone is not able to find the system. I put the software disc in but it did nothing and some times even spits it back out. Not sure what to do if it is a lost cause. Thanks Nicola

Hi, my Peugeot 407, 2 litre petrol cylinder head was done because it overheated. When we try to start it, there is no sparks going to the plugs for ignition to take place. The heat sensor to the cylinder head is not yet connected, could that be the cause? Thanks for your help, be blessed.

I am having a problem with my power steering cutting out. this happens when in heavy traffic after a fairly long journey and the temperature gets over the 90 degree mark the power steering warning light comes on and the stop warning . The indicator displays power steering faulty. I have had the power steering fluid changed and the pump checked. after having rested the car for a short while on re-starting every thing works ok until the temperature rises again, although if I have a clear journey every thing is ok. could anyone help me with this. it only happens under the above circumstances.

Some times when I go to pull away from traffic lights the engine will not accelerate pumping the accelerator pedal makes not difference, sometime it will clear on its own, other times you have to turn the ignition off and back on again. What could be the fault that is causing this problem?
Your Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve is dirty and sticking in the recirculation position. you can test this by disconnecting the EGR electrical connector and taking it for a short drive. The fix for this is either 1: remove and clean the existing EGR. 2: replace the EGR with a new unit. 3: some places offer a blanking off plate to remove it from the exhaust gas cycle. 4: leave the electrical connector off. Some of these "fixes" may be illegal in your area. Colin Kleinig from Australia

Hi, I'm experiencing problems with my cooler fan. It suddenly started rotating on a cold engine and continues to rotate throughout the drive,it runs for roughly 30 seconds after ignition is switched off. I've had the temp sensor changed and the main fan relay but still no change. My question is this,does anyone else have this problem,or had this problem and how was it fixed. Kind regards.

using the key (not the remote) to open & close my 407 2010 won't operate the central lock any advice ? thanks
Ron, several modern cars that use remote control to open.. keyless entry... will not operate the central locking when the key IS used. If you know that your key entry used to open all doors, then there may be a problem. Wifey has a Clio and the key will only allow entry to the vehicle via passenger door.. that's normal, fella.
