I have a newly acquired Peugeot boxer motorhome- 2004. 1) Pulling away in first gear on a full lock - juddering. I was told it was the power steering kicking in- need plenty of oomph! Read i could drain/ flush power steering fluid- might be bits in it? -and then put new fluid in- might this help? 2) Also when i turn the ignition on i get a brief view of a spanner few noughts where mileage shows up!- then disappears - the mileage then appears- all seems ok. Thanks, if anyone can advise- sorry- just trying to get used to my motorhome. General very happy with it- drives really well. Still under guarantee- have owned it now for 3 weeks.
The judder when you pull away on full lock is more likely to be caused by worn engine mounts or the clutch plate worn or contaminated with oil. Can't comment about the warning lights. Hugh from City of Glasgow
On full lock could just be strut top bearing,top of the damper in the engine compartment. Phill Smith from Yorkshire

I have a Peugeot Boxer with a 2.5ltr engine and the fuel economy seems to be high, I have filled the tank and after 210 miles it is down to quarter of a tank. There does not appear to be any leaks so I can only assume it just drinks it Any ideas how I may solve this to get more mileage out of it.

Hold the tyre pressure button on the dash for 5secs the light should go out Dean Wilson from Armagh

good evening... my van has done 35000km since new and just last month, the dpf filter sign lite up, after an hour or two the check engine lite came on and it went to limp mode.. the garage I took it to removed the dpf filter and cleaned it completely.. I will be able to get my van back over the weekend and hopefully back in use by Monday as a courier van... I was wondering if there is anyone, who uses their van as a courier service and only doing city loops and short runs, have any recommendation for its maintenance... do you add any additives to the fuel to prevent the dpf from building up? if so what brand do you recommend and how often do you add it? any advice would be appreciated to prevent any further breakdown or going to limp mode... thanks.. kennedy
Get the thing on a up to date diagnosis machine,that should get to the bottom of this, f it wasnt on limp mode i would just put amatchbox over the cab warning light,they notoriously come on when theres no problem at all. Phill Smith from Yorkshire

I have a 2016 Elddis motorhome fitted with a factory alarm. All has been fine until today when I went inside the van via the passenger cab door.. I started the engine to top up the battery all fine. When locked the van up the alarm set as normal but went off after about 30 secs. This now happens each time I lock the van. The blue alarm light starts flashing after a few seconds - 3 quick flashes in succession, followed by a short interval & then flashes 3 again - this repeats until the alarm goes off. I have checked all doors & bonnet are closed. Any ideas?
2016 = still under warranty.. take it back to dealer.. besides, you ought to get it seen by someone who knows how the alarm is fitted, not how the vehicle works R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi. My 2001 Boxer served me well, still is... Bought new without any serious problems I came across the first one! When turning the ignition key the dash board lights comes on as usual. The fuel heater light goes off and when trying to crank thr engine nothins happens! There is no sound coming from the starter nor any dashboard lights dim. If I try to do this with the head lihgts on (xenon lights) then the head lights dim but not the dashboard. Is it the starters fault, the ignition key, a fuse or something else. I very much appreciate your opinion Regards Kiri

Hi Folks. Checking the 1996 AS Harmony over prior to my first trip in it and I've just found that the Thereford Cassette toilet is not as described in the AS Owners Manual - it's a C3L instead of the C2. The only difference as far as I can tell is where you fill the flush tank with fresh water. The C2 has a filler which you swing out to fill the tank but mine, the C3L doesn't appear to have such a facility. Can anyone out there please enlighten me as to how I get water to flush the loo. Do I have to fill the main water tank and does the main pump have to be switched on. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading and regards to all. Grahame
Hi folks. I never thought I'd be able to resolve a problem posted by myself, but I have. I can confirm that the toilet flush for the Thetford C3L Cassette is supplied from the main water tank in the 1996 AS Peugeot Boxer 270S Harmony. Fill the tank, turn on and prime the pump, press the Flush button on the bog, and away you go. Thanks to all who were about to respond. Regards Grahame Grahame from Hampshire

After a journey the filler cap will make a "burbing" sound intermittently for a number of hours. Sounds like pressure release either low pressure or high pressure, I can't make out which. Continues even after removing and replacing the filler cap. Seems more prominent when the fuel tank is above half full. No other noticeable performance issues.

I have a problem with my campervan based on the 2000 Peugeot Boxer. When pulling away from a standing start such as traffic lights the revs climb but then suddenly drop. I have to drop back a gear and then speed up slowly. It is most noticeable in 1st and 2nd gear.

Hi I have a 1997 Boxer Motorhome, 1.9td, I think its a 230L but that wasnt an option in selecting model for this question. Looked at radiator and a lot of the front rows have perished so I am going to replace it. My query is I thought I might replace the water pump whilst everything was drained, but in my book it says that the cam belt has to be removed, does anybody know if i have to touch the cam belt as i am not to keen on that. Thanks Daven to go there
Dave, on the 1.9td engine you have to remove any auxiliary belt AND the timing belt.. the water pump is toothed and timing belt will have to be removed... but then if it ain't broke, why fix it... if it's not leaking and performing ok don't bother. R Evans from Caerphilly

I have a Peugeot Boxer 2.8 HDi motorhome 2007 with 30,000miles on the clock, when I rev the engine to 3000 revs the particulate/emissions light comes on and whilst on when I try to change up he gears it seems to go into limp mode, it drives perfectly below 3000 revs. I have a had an auto electrician test , sent me for a smoke test, no leak, changed the censor but it still comes on and looses power. It has cost me £160 so far and he tells me there is no particulate filter on my vehicle. Anybody can help please.
Well I can tell you that there is no particulate filter on yours.. they were introduced on much later models to comply with Euro rules. What you should have is a lambda sensor also known as oxygen sensor.. they can fail and give false readings to ecu about the condition of the exhaust fumes... if it is faulty it won't tell the ecu that... so won't come up on diagnostics. There is an egr valve that can clog up and give this outcome, also a boost pressure sensor that clogs up that could also give you issues. You can take them off and clean them yourself at no cost... replace and try. Careful you don't damage the egr valve gaskets.. or get new ones anyway, they are cheap enough R Evans from Caerphilly

I am trying to obtain a Certificate of Conformity for my Boxer Autosleeper Nuevo motorhome. I took the boxer to france and registerd it,now i am living in Wales and need UK plates and the DVLA is requesting a Certificate of conformity,I contacted Peugeot in France and their website is asking for NRE of the vehicle.I cannot find anything to match this,can you help me please?
Reg, contact the VOSA people at the testing depot in Llantrisant.. their nearest test centre is behind Corner Park garage on the A4119. All I think they are looking for is a full test by VOSA to show the vehicle is safe for UK roads... something like MOT really. R Evans from Caerphilly
