I wonder if anybody can help me? I have got condensation in my Peugeot Boxer`s front headlights. I believe it`s an MOT failure. Is there any way to remedy this without replacing the headlights? Also how easy is it to replace them if I need to? Thanks. (motorhome)

Over the winter it seems the scuttle drain filled the gearbox in my Peugeot Boxer with water. It (allegedly) froze, expanded and split the gearbox casing. Anyway therre was gearbox oil all over the floor. It might be just a broken casing, but will need a lift (pick up/towtruck) to somewhere they can look at it and once there will they say no problem? I expected hundreds of thousands of miles from a commercial Peugeot vehicle. It seems like, as a motorhome, 32k miles is pretty good going and scrapping it is not unreasonable. Is this the way it is? Thoughts would be much appreciated. I really thought a motorhome based on such a vehicle would last "forever". Any comments please? (Motorhome - Autosleeper)

My Peugeot Boxer`s clutch pedal sticks after about 40 miles of driving. It tends to squeak first and then as the pedal is pushed to the floor it doesn’t release. Could it be the release spring or is it something else?

Our Peugeot Boxer`s key code light is on and the engine will not start. We do not want to replace the diesel pump on so old a van but we need to move it though. Is there any way of bypassing the immobiliser? (350 LWB)
The immobiliser has gone into default mode. Find a garage who can rectify it with an electronic fault finder which can also rectify the problem. Just had my Boxer key problem sorted this way - Rob from Suffolk

Help! I have broken the catch on the centre glovebox of my Peugeot Boxer. I am trying to source a replacement at a reasonable price.

Hi, I currently live in Denmark and have a Peugeot Boxer van. I have problems with the fourth gear and cannot seem to figure out what is wrong. The only books available on it are in Danish or German, neither of which I have mastered. Any advice where I can find a manual in English I can use? Many thanks in advance.
Hi Maria. I too had problems with gear selection on my Boxer. Firstly 1st, 2nd, 4th and reverse went. There seems to be a problem with the cable gear linkage system. I sprayed lots of liquid grease on the links. You’ll have to get under the van to do it or put it on a lift. After a while 1st, 2nd and reverse came back! I didn’t have 4th for about 3 three weeks , then it came back! It is not a problem in the gear box. I now have other problems. I won’t be getting another Peugeot! It won’t start in cold weather and the red engine light comes on and it goes into limp mode! Tim Payne from England
Hi Maria. I have exactly the same problem and have found that it is the synchro that is faulty. I have replaced the gearbox with a recon and the problem solved - Clayton Davison from England

My Peugeot Boxer`s radiator has 2 fans, the one on the right as you look at the vehicle cuts in when the temperature reaches 100 deg . But I have never seen the left hand fan cut in. Are they supposed to cut in together or are they set for different temperature settings? (motorhome)
Probably the same as the 2 fans on the Fiat Ducato engine (motorhome). They are supposed to come on at the same time, but if you look you will see that one is mounted with the wiring at the top and the other with the wiring at the bottom. This means that the lefthand fan has a hole facing such that water gets into the fan and over time this fan seizes up. When I got a replacement fan I modified it such that the hole now faces the same way as the right hand fan - Anthony Oliver from Spain

Been there, got the T-shirt! Probably the nut that holds the synchro assembly has worked loose and so you cannot keep in gear: if it gets any looser the whole mechanism may jam so that you will be unable to change gear at all, so get this fixed urgently. 5th gear is in a separate housing outside the manin ’box and as I understand it, can be replaced without having to remove the whole box - Robert Napier from Staffordshire

I paid for a reconditioned gearbox for my Peugeot Boxer with a specialist repairer two years ago. After 11 months it went wrong and they said water had got into the box but it had not done any damage. It had never happened before they touched it but they charged £300.00+. In December last year the gears started playing up again and they had it in for a free "adjustment". It was adjusted every two months or so ( I have accurate dates) until August when I took it in again. A week later, after 16 miles only, it would not go into 3rd (gear problem varies from gear to gear) so I took it in again. Sorted but, on the way home having covered 6 miles a similar problem, it won’t engage and feels like pushing the stick through porridge. Adjusted and on the way home again a vibration sets up in fourth on slopes when you change down or up in low revs. I’ve only done about 60 miles in 3 weeks and this change has occured in their custody. It`s not us, it’s an engine problem. (They kept the van for four days to come to this). A gas specialist, new leads and distributor but no go, must be a shim problem with the valve clearances. I`m waiting now but is it a problem with the gearbox shims as somebody now suggests? (Motorhome W Reg. Gas converted 2008)

Look at the tyres, this will tell you the profile, width and diameter. For example, if you look on the wall of the tyre it will read something like this 225/75 16 - this means the width is 225 wide the tyre profile is measured from the bottom of the tyre to the wheel rim ie 75mm , and the 16 is the diameter of the wheel in inches OK - Nigel Wheeler from Dorset

My 350 Peugeot Boxer`s engine keeps going into limp mode. The speedo started working when ticking over, I put a new earth cable on and it has stopped working. Would there be a sensor or fuse which runs these?
I have a Peugeot Boxer 2003 and was stuck in limp mode. Could be a sticky turbo wastegate (was for me). Switch your engine on and pull off various vacuum hoses at the front of the engine (have to remove a cover) and block them off with your finger, on and off several times, hopefully this will jar open the wastgate, it did for me. I then sprayed some domestic surface cleaning chemical into the air intake (engine running) with the view of lubricating any rubber seals that had stuck - Gavin Goff from Aberdeenshire

Sorry, missed your reply, however I am told there is only one heater plug in my vehicle and it is working fine.

My Peugeot Boxer`s central locking has stopped working, only on the side sliding door. I assume there must be a pick up switch within the door locking mechanism that has ceased to function. It will still lock manually by key. Can anyone help?
We have a 2009 Boxer . The side door was not locking either . We had new contacts and door hinges (all the door stuff) renewed . The garage showed us all the worn contacts/parts so that may be what is causing your problem. Usually garages are expensive here but it only cost us 240 euros - MJ from France

I would like to change the double passenger seat in my Peugeot Boxer for a single one. Is it okay to buy a driver`s seat, would it fit and would the seatbelt fixings have be changed? Many thanks for any help.
Yes you can. If you use a early unit (pressed steel) the front bolts should fit. If you use a tubular frame seat mount you will need the correct, longer bolts as fitted when in the drivers position. The seat belt mount is bolted to the frame and the belt mounted on the passanger door pilar should fit. And your passanger gets a arm rest. The bolts are high tension steel! Don’t use anything that fits, it’s only a few quid for the correct ones from a Peugeot dealer - Bernard from Norfolk

My Peugeot Boxer engine emission control system light is on. Is it anything urgent? I had it serviced in February 2012. Also the engine oil light comes on when starting and then goes off. Does anyone know what the problem is?
I have a 57 plate Boxer and my oil light flashes for 10-15 seconds after starting then goes off, I’ve been told it’s just a faulty sensor - Jeff Weaver from Newport
The sensor also tells you that your oil is dirty as well as oil level. Change the oil and filter, that should fix it - Dave F from England
The oil light flashing means the oil has degraded and needs changing but the system needs resetting as it doesn’t reset itself. Will need plugging in to pp2000 to do this. Also with the engine light on means it needs checking as fault with fuel/emission system. Get checked asap to avoid further problems/damage - Jon from Derbyshire

I am having tremendous problems starting my Peugeot Boxer. After switching on the ignition, after a couple of seconds, I get the little amber "car with padlock" light on. If I try to turn the engine over I get the message ABS Unavailable. I have been told this is probably the EGR valve. Can anyone give any info on this, if a temporary repair can be made until a replacement can be obtained and finally where on earth on the engine is it located. Many thanks.
Don’t fix it, forget you own it, leave it in a wooded area so people can’t see it, you are going to need to take a mortgage out to keep it alive. Luckily I bought 11 of these heaps, I hate them so much and cost of repairs is mad. Anyway back to your problem, egr valves are about £162 from main dealer, £50 to check it is that plus £50 to see if they fitted it right. Hopefully your garage are not in South West so they may give you a good price. It’s an easy fix but be prepared, it may need one every b.day.

The heater on my Peugeot Boxer has suddenly stopped working! No cold or hot air at all? Does anyone have any ideas how I might fix this problem?
Yes, I know the feeling mate, it happened to me. You need to take out the heater nobs first of all and remove any star head screws you see but there are some hidden ones where you have removed the three control nobs when your heater section is loose you need to then remove three more screws located on the heater switch as the switch connection over the years has worn thin. Remove the switch and open it up. There will be a few copper connections you need to clean and after you have done that, you need to put a solder on the main connection that has the spring on, put a good solder on the tip of it as this is the main problem. When done, I suggest you put it back together securing it with super glue and some electrical tape then test and refit. Problem solved mate unless you’re unlucky and the heater matrix has completely had its days. Hope that helps - Robert Massey from England

Recently bought a 2003 camper van converted 2.0HDi diesel Boxer and I have a question about the alarm/immobiliser which is fitted. I assume it is not a Peugeot type but I have no other info. There is a light on top of the dash and depending on how set shows either flashing red light or solid green. Any idea what is being set in each case? But also new battery fitted (has leisure battery too). Not used for 2 weeks after decent run and battery had drained and van wouldn’t start. Re-charged with C-tek trickle charger and fine again. Could the immobilser/alarm drain battery in 2 weeks? Alternator seems fine. Or could leisure battery have been culprit and should be disconnected when van not in use? Have fitted battery isolator and leisure battery is not now connected. Any thoughts welcome.
I had a similar problem with my 2003 Boxer motorhome but I don’t have alarm but main battery was flat after leaving overnight with nothing switched on. I don’t think your problem is connected to the alarm. Fortunately, mine was fixed under warranty and I don’t know what was found. I suggest taking it to auto electrician as I think it is a problem with a short on wiring system. Sorry I can’t be of more help - Brian Walker from Yorkshire
Thanks for the help. Looks like I’ve cured it. Seems it was the leisure battery Combi Master self switching unit. I noticed it was always warm (therefore doing something) even though I’d isolated the leisure battery. So I have started disconnecting it and only connecting when I’m using the camper - top up the leisure battery with trickle charger now and then. Battery now staying charged for as much as you can expect if not used. Cheers - David Davies from Yorkshire

The radiator fan has started staying on when I switch ignition off, to such an extent it appears it would stay on until the battery flattens. So after about 5 minutes, I’ve been pulling the plug to the fan out when it obviously is not going to go off. Later, when the engine has cooled down I plug it back in and it’s okay. It happens even after about five miles. Am I correct in thinking that it has a sender unit that’s possibly going faulty and is it situated in the radiator? It’s a temptation to just carry on and just pull the plug out, but I’m probably tempting fate and it might suddenly fail altogether. Be glad of any help. (Motorhome)

Turned out I had a small leak from my radiator hose connection and there subsequently wasn’t enough water in there, so especially after longer journeys, the engine was beginning to overheat so when i got home and switched off, the fan stayed on! A real shock when it first happened and I got out with my keys in my hand and it sounded like the car was still on and going to drive off on its own! Fortunately it hadn’t got too bad to make the temp light come on or damage anything. So it may just be a simple check on your water level and hoses, or check your rad for leaks - Susie Susie from Essex

The horn on my Boxer sounds intermittently whilst driving for lengthy periods (until I pull the fuse). It doesn’t half frighten the natives and increase the laundry! Probable cause(s) would be appreciated.
Hello, Peugeot Boxers have what I describe as "err....mmm!" wiring looms. By this I mean the faults that can occur make you go "err....mmm!". Sorry, they are good as a rule but can be a headache. I suspect your problem is either a foreign supply to the horn (via fuseboard, or chaffed wire within the loom), or as I have said before, it may be the relucter ring beneath the steering wheel if your horn is on the steering wheel. They deteriorate and contact is made when not required, or the power supply wire touches the ring/earth thus resulting the same inappropriate sounding. Start by removing the steering wheel and have a look, remove the battery earth cable first if you have a steering wheel airbag, and use caution whilst removing and refitting it. Hope this helps, thanks - Rich from England

Could someone please tell me the exact location of the "relay damper" which stops the fluctuation of the petrol gauge. In a previous answer, it was said that it is under the dash on the passenger side but don’t know how well it is hidden. I understand that this relay causes problems with the accuracy of the needle. Thanks. (Autocruise motor home)

I have a 2001 Boxer 1.9 diesel non turbo that I need a cylinder head for. I know the engine was used in Citreon and Peugeot cars. I would like to know which cars and from what year. Also, I’m having trouble locating the engine number. Many thanks.

Van serviced September, now December. After starting, oil warning light flashes 4 times then goes out. Checked manual, says soot detector, take van for service. The oil used is Mobil 1 - surely should not need oil change already?

Hi, if you have serviced the car first (otherwise it’s too easy to ignore!) with the ignition key off, hold down the trip mileage button and turn ignition on (don’t start the engine) you will see the miles count down to zero and then 20000 will be displayed, then release the button. Your service caption should disappear too. Have fun - Andy from Hampshire

I have a Peugot Boxer motor home. The clutch in the van keeps falling to the floor and to fix it you have to reach down and lift it again. Is this a common problem or is it a one-off? I only purchased the van in 2008...
I have exactly the same problem, and am stuck in France awaiting a repair. I am told by the garage that the master and slave cylinders need replacing. My master cylinder was replaced only 10 months ago!! It will get worse, until undriveable, so you need to get it fixed before you too are stranded - Michael Field from England
This could be the master and slave cylinders but may be a leak or failure in the seals on the cylinders - thus it may not actually need the cylinders themselvers replacing. Alternatively, it can just be the pressure in the hydraulic clutch system, suggesting a possible leak at some point in that system causing depressurising - a split pipe or failed seal could cause this - Dave Bonner from Yorkshire

My Boxer is the base vehicle for my Compass motorhome. I am curious to know if anyone else has experienced the following... After 28,000 miles, we were touring France when we had a problem with noise in the area of the passenger side front wheel. It turned out to be a wheel bearing which had to be replaced, along with the hub and circlip at a cost of 489.47euros plus tax. I have been home just a week and now have to spend a similar sum in Sterling to have the drivers side wheel attended to. How common is it for both to go and why the expense? Wheel bearings are not made of gold. I have heard that there was a recall but can find no detail about this. £800 for two wheel bearings seems to be excessive in the extreme.
