The fuel runs back at night? could it be the fuel pump weakening? is it manual or electric and can I get through the passenger side floor to get to it?

Answers

Not sure what's causing the problem but your fuel pump is in the tank.. the access point is between the two seats..remove the floor panel then remove the metal panel's and the top of the tank and connections are visible.. the fuel pump is incorporated into the fuel level sender unit and changed as one. R Evans from Caerphilly

Sounds like an air leak into the system If you've had the fuel filter changed recently make sure the pipes are tight, on the 2.2 make sure the top is fully tightened......there may be no sign of a fuel leak, but it can draw air in overnight John H from Cornwall

i own a 2.5 turbo diesel based motor home ,which is fitted with twin cooling fans, and want to know are there 2 sensors fitted ,so basically one for each fan ,or just one

Answers

Mike, I believe that there is one sensor (but may be corrected).. the one fan cuts in when engine idling and getting warm, but the second is like a booster if the engine temp goes higher.. however, there are two fuses, one for each so it is possible there are two circuits but run off one sensor R Evans from Caerphilly

DHi there, I have a 2015 Peugeot boxer. I broke the win mirror - how do I remove the whole unit please and thanks

Answers

Open the door wide... remove the plastic cover from the inside of the quarterlight.. gets you access to the fixing bolts. undo them and go to outside and lift the mirror unit by abt 2cm to free the mounting hook(used to help you put it back on) and remove it.. but if you have electric mirrors then it's a bit more complicated unless your wiring is just long enough to unclip .. you have to remove the upper door panels to access the multiplug connector. hex screwdrivers or bits will be needed.. take off all the screws/bolts that you can see fixing the moulding.. then the hidden ones are - prize the speaker cover forward to remove.. remove the three screws holding speaker and remove speaker.. there's one!! ... behind the inner door release theres a plastic bit comes off to reveal another.. on the upper corner piece.. prize it upwards to reveal another.. the electric window switch.. screwdriver at the rearward part to pop it up.. then pull it out and release the front bit, unclip wiring and remove and you have two more fixings. You don't need to go as far as removing the doorcard itself.. just the plastic mouldings which then lift upwards and away enough to access the wiring plug. Been a while since I did this..but think it covers it. Take care with the moulding.. a lot of it is plastic welded and can pop easily.. but if so.. clamp it together and a soldering iron will melt a blob of plastic to repair it R Evans from Caerphilly

How do I remove the battery? Is it just the one nut on the negative terminal(easy to see/access)and the one small nut on the positive terminal? There are many other nuts near this terminal. Many thanks.

Answers

Yep, just the very difficult to access 10mm nut on the +ve terminal. Undo the clip that hold the plate to the battery, loosen the wee 10mm nut and the whole plate lifts off. DON'T touch the other nuts on the plate - that's a load of fuses! steve ellwood from Highland

Hi Where is the fuze for the cigarette lighter on my 2015 2.2 130 hdi Boxer.. The handbook I have is wrong.

Answers

Thomas, the fuse for your cig lighter will be behind the small panel under the right side of the driver dashboard.. two screws to undo, remove the panel and expose the fuses.. I don't know which fuse it is but if you think the fuse has gone check the blue ones (15A) by one until you find the faulty one.. if no joy then go to the yellow ones (20A) then the blue (10A) ones. It is unlikely to any other colour, but may be white (or clear) at 25A R Evans from Caerphilly

Flyer5, Durham

Peugeot Boxer

Hi any ideas what might cause this? 1997 2L petrol. Had the cam belt changed, new plugs, filters, liquids etc. When I went ot pick it up it started and died. It would start, as soon as you pressed the throttle it died. Mechanic came out and said it had previously been botched to make it run (it was running on the throttle all the time) He said it may be MAP sensor so had to leave the van. Got charge 70 quid for a map sensor and told the van was ok so went to pick it up. Started it up and it started and ticked over, as soon as I put pressure on the throttle it cut out. It did this for 5 minutes then started running ok mechanic reckoned he spent 4 hours fault finding and found a dry joint on the ecu. Mechanic reckoned it had been running rich for ages and needed a run out. drove it home and it did seem nippier and to run smoother than before. Parked it up (a week ago - its a motorhome) went to start it today; It started and ticked over lovely, no spluttering or change in tickover. Put it in reverse and started pulling off the drive and had to stop. Tried to continue and it died. Now, every time I start it it starts ok and ticks over, but on any pressure on the throttle it dies. Im asking the wider audience, any ideas what this could be? Cheers

I have an elddis motorhome based on the Peugeot boxer. I have noticed that when the cruise control is turned on, and the green cruise control lights, so does the water level and airbag with a dim glow. As soon as the cruise control is turned off these lights go out. The voice was registered in March 2013 so wondered if this a problem that is covered under warranty

Answers

I had the same problem with my then 2.5 year old Elddis in April 2015 and the dash was replaced under warranty. I now have the same problem with the second dash after 10 months and further 4,000 miles. The solution is a third dash at a cost of approximately £800 which Peugeot are asking me to pay £500. We are in dispute with Peugeot at the moment. Not happy!!!! Jeff from Northamptonshire

Just had ours replaced under warranty at under 1000 miles. Apparently, a not uncommon occurrence. Good luck with Peugeot. Paul from Lancashire

i have a peugeot boxer 2.2 diesel auto sleeper symbol camper van 2006. it takes ages to get engine temperature up to normal . i think the thermostat needs changing, like to know were it is and how to change it, please can you help.

Answers

If your vehicle is the type II relay then the thermostat is to the right of the engine as you look in the engine bay from the front.. there are three screws fixing the housing.. take them out and the thermostat is underneath that. Thermostat part number is 1338-23 and gasket is 1348-48. On the Type III Relay the part number is 1338-F5 and gasket is 1340-90.. the location is much the same.. to the right of the engine, but there are a few more pipes to get out of the way to access it properly. Both housings are fixed by three screws to remove the cover and then take out the thermostat and gasket. To change either, you drain the system .. move pipes out the way to access the fixings for the housing... remove the pipe that goes to the thermostat housing then the three screws that fixes the housing and pull it away.. on Type II it pulls upwards.. on type III it pulls forward. clean the area tidy before putting the new parts in.. there is likely to be some dirt and corrosion. When you refit the three housing screws, put some copper ease on them for future ease of removal. The part numbers given may differ, depending on your specific spec of vehicle... with the VIN number known, the exact part numbers and fitting could be given. R Evans from Caerphilly

My Marqis Motorhome with a 2015 150 hp diesel flattens the battery if left parked up for a few weeks, so I took the motorhome manual's advice and disconnected the negative terminal. An easy to remove clamp is supplied to facilitate this. On reconnecting the radio/nav and climate control consoles are both dead, any ideas?

Answers

I have experiencedsom of these symptoms in my Autosleeper motorhome on a Boxer. Battery drain was proved to be cab radio and TV aerial amp continuing to take power from the battery when everything is switched off. If there is a faint glow on the radio on/off button, the radio is in standby mode and consuming power. Autosleeper fitted an isolator switch as standard to prevent this. Once I was aware of this and used the switch - problem half solved. The other half was solved by fitting a switch in the 12 volt supply to the TV aerial amp myself. You can get the radio back up by inserting a four figure code. This code should be in your vehicle documentation and instructions in your handbook. Sorry I do not know anything about your climate control. Steve Lawson from Cornwall
