I have just had a towbar fitted. I now find that when I connect a trailer the sound of the indicator repeater changes from the normal click-click sound to a higher pitched beeping. Can anyone tell me if this is normal and if not what may be causing the change. As far as I know the wiring to the 7 pin socket does not run through a relay.

Is it possible to disable the 5 indicator flashes that happen when you nudge the indicator stalk? The problem is that at night it is very difficult when dipping the headlights - which are on the same stalk - to avoid inadvertently trigger 5 flashes, which can confuse other drivers.

My Boxer is a Equitrek 4tonne two horse lorry. When driving it with a horse in there is a problem with the speed limiter in that you climb up the speed and it pulls back at you as if it has reached the limiter speed (90km/hr or 58 mph). Though you are only driving between 39-50 mph. It doesn't do it without a horse in though!! Garage has replaced the speed recorder sensor but the problem remains! Any ideas??

I've had a problem with my Boxer van mileometer for a while now. I took advise and changed the bit on the side of the gearbox, and checked the gearbox oil. No water present. Sooooo I then changed the clock cluster KNOW WHAT ??? It still isn't working. The bottom set of numbers change BUT not the top set....Any clues???? It's on a 2002 boxer van conversion as a motorhome and I love the drive etc so this is really annoying .... ANYONE know what to do next??? ANY clues???? (The actual speedometer works, so please don't suggest that) Thankyou

Year 1999 Boxer Petrol MWB Motorhome. Radiator Fan Supply Failure. / Petrol Pump Fuse Postion I have lost the 12v supply to the single fan on the radiator. Reads about 4v suggesting bad / corroded supply. The fuse for this does not seem to appear on the glove box fuse diagram ( only the heater fan ) Can anyone help in locating this fuse or indeed from where the 12v is taken off and fed to the radiator fan. I have checked out a few other fuses located under bonnet bur no luck as yet. If all else fails I will have to wire in another fused but continuously on 12v supply to this unit. As an aside if your Boxer petrol pump appears to fail then first check the fuse... mine.. surprise , surprise is located hanging in the wiring loom , under the bonnet close to the airfilter asy. also there is a red fuse holder in this location also which I have yet to discover why its there. However any help in locating fan radiator fuse / supply line much appreciated.

Answers

Since posting question I have solved it. Radiator fan fuse 30 A is mounted in a very difficult to get at position in a green holder with a black cover / clip just above battery and alongside a multi point battery junction point. Peter from Devon

Hi, I have just lost my passenger side electric / heated wing mirror in a minor accident and are having problems locating the wiring 'plug'. Has anybody got an idea where it might be located? The van is a Peugeot Boxer 2004 290 MWB Diesal. The mirror was ripped away leaving a broken 'mount' plus the loose wiring. I presume when I buy a new mirror there will be a connector on the end of the wiring to attach to the one on the van........if only I could find it! Do I have to take the plastic door bits off? I would be really grateful for any help! Thanks in advance...

Hi In general do users find the breaks on a Peugeot Boxer motor home (1999) are very sharp or efficient? I have checked mine over and everything seem ok but I would like more stopping power. Do I need to change the setting of the regulator valve to the back breaks? or does the type of front break pads make a difference? Any help welcome. Cheers Keith

Peugeot Boxer

where is the level plug on the gearbox! and what oil viscosity can i use? ...and can you top up gearbox oil with an oil from a different manufacturer? please help! and thankyou! ;)

Answers

Hi I recently changed the oil in my gearbox. I have a Peugeot Boxer 270 MWB, YEAR 1999. I was sold a Total Oil OIL 75W-80. The gear box takes about 2 ~Litres. If you don't know when the oil was changed I would recommend a full change as mine was filthy and full of sludge. The level plug can be seen if you look over the front left tyre at about 10 o'clock. It is removed with a male square drive. The drain plug is the same type and located at the back of the gear box on the underside. By the way don't drain the oil until you know that you can shift the refill level plug as they can seize. The job is best done with the front left wheel removed. As far as I know provided the specification and grade of oil is the same there should be no problem. Hope this helps. Cheers Keith Marchant from Surrey

Can anyone help Ive had an ongoing problem with the drivers side electric window on my 2005 boxer for a while . It started operating slowly going up at first then stopped working. I stripped the mechanism out of the door found nothing connected it up whilst out of the door all worked ok. It continued to work ok for the next 6 months then started operating slowly again until it failed completely. Again I stripped the mechanism but this time wouldn't work at all. I purchased a replacement tested it as before but this time not working .I tested the unit with a 12v supply and works ok . I have no power to the mechanism connector although the coils in the relay are working . Could the PCB in the relay be at fault. Has anyone had similar problems. Thank You

Blair, Buckinghamshire

Peugeot Boxer

I have an Autocruise Stardream motorhome based on a Peugeot Boxer 2011. Someone smashed my wing mirror, so I have bought a replacement. It is the type with twin mirrors that are heated and they are electrically adjustable. I have managed to get the old mirror off and know how to put the new one on, apart from the electrics. The cable on the old one passes through a hole in the outer side of the door and connects to the controls in the armrest. How can I get the top of the armrest off? There is a panel that runs across the top and another on the corner furthest from the hinge, but there doesn't seem to be any give if I try to lever either one off. I don't want to damage it, so I haven't tried to force it. Does anyone have any ideas please?

Hello I have a Peugeot Boxer motorhome and lost the speedo but on further investigation of the gearbox to find the speedo cable I found that the gearbox was being infiltrated with water as I had had the speedo cable end disconected from the gearbox and spun it by hand and confirmed that it was showing a reading on the speedo I knew it had to be something in the gearbox so spoke to a local fitter who told me these speedo drives were made of plastic and possibly the water in the gearbox oil was affecting the drive so advised draining the gearbox oil completly and refilling with new. the reason the water gets in the gearbox was via the (well) that collects the water off the windowscreen if the seal of the tube that runs from the bottom has gone it leeks all over the gearbox instead of running down the back of the engine, when the water sits on top of the gearbox for any length of time it seeps in through the joints and will in time ruin your gearbox and cause a problem with your speedo I renewed the oil in the gearbox and the speedo started to work again soon after, I now put a plastic bag over the gearbox when not in use I also sealed the pipe in the bottom of the Well with silicon sealant. If you want to ckeck first to see if you have water in the gearbox just drain a little off you will soon know if it has water in it by the colour and the water should run out first. yours denis denis from Cambridgeshire

This is all very interesting as my Boxer Motor home did not have a pipe to drain water from the windscreen well and as already stated any rain water goes all over the gearbox. When I asked about this no one new if there should be a pipe so I thought it was just poor design and decided to make my own. A word of caution though, the rain flow off the windscreen and roof gutters can be quite considerable and if your drainage is not big enough the windscreen well fills up and back flows into the air vent and then into your fan motor housing before leaking all over the passenger side floor. Yes I got it wrong first time round. Cheers Keith Marchant from Surrey

In one of the two fuse boxes. On the 06 model it is in the one under the bonnet. The location of the fuse boxes should be shown on your instruction manual and inside the lid of the box is a legend to show you which relay is which. Dunney from Greater London
