Hi I've just bought a 16 plate HDI auto expert van . On spec sheet , air con was also in glove compartment on HDI models . Peugeot has just changed spec sheet today . Not including air con glove compartment . Also does anyone have a light in their glove compartment and air con. On receiving my van , I noticed both blind spot mirrors were marked , thinking it was just sticker residue , but turned out to be misty and badly scratched when sunlight shines on them from behind van . Just need to know if you have light and air con in your van . Kind regards Andy

My van went into the garage last week they said it was the fuse n diagnostics now it's happened again how can I fix it without it going back to the garage please

Answers

Graham.. what you don't tell is why the van went into the garage... what was wrong in the first place? You can check all your fuses yourself one at a time til you find a dead one.. then find out what circuit it relates to.. narrows the problem finding. R Evans from Caerphilly

Driving along and my van seems to want to stall. After a few revs it's ok! Drive off again and the problem reoccurs. When I'm stopped it runs ok then wants to stall again! Noticed white smoke on a few occasions from the exhaust. Please help

Answers

White smoke is probably unburnt diesel, I am no mechanic but could be an injector failing and dropping too much fuel into one cylinder. Take it to a specialist diesel engine centre - not a Peugeot dealer and get them to diagnose it. Likelihood is that if it is an injector it will fail dramatically soon and leave you stranded.

Answers

Hi, if its the same fault I had it sounds like your door lock regulator solenoid is worn out,i had mine out a couple of times to clean it and oil up the moving parts to no avail, I had to lean on the door lock to get it to stay locked but sometimes it would open on its own or not lock at all, try a lean whilst locking then gently release ur pressure on it, it will only get worse as you cannot repair the unit, only option is a new one or ebay breakers,£50 to put mine right, hope this helps ?? moz from Lancashire

mick nicholson, Kent

Peugeot Expert

Hi bought the van back in november and been trouble free until no, engine cut out yesterday and wouldn't re start so pumped the fuel primer pump and all was good again for a couple of hours then had loss of power when putting foot down puffs of black smoke, changed fuel filter and smoke went from black to white, i suspected and injector problem so changed one of the injectors that i thought was the problem, made no difference at all, there is no water in the oil engine never got hot and no engine management light the only fault code showing was glow plug relay when mate put on diagnostic machine any help would be much appreciated can't find any air leaks on any of the pipes either

Answers

the problem was being caused by a faulty ear vale blanked it off and now runs better than when i first got the van mick nicholson from Kent

Mick.. having blanked off your ear vale have you had a diagnostic to tell the ecu that you no longer have an ear vale.. plus.. your ear vale might not have been faulty.. just a bit clogged up.. though they are quite problematic. What you may find is emissions testing at MOT may be issue.. ear vale is part of the cleaner air thing in emissions testing... though blanking off an ear vale will show better performance and probably get better MPG too.. you're no longer sending half burned gases through the ear vale and back into the engine.

The RAC came to fix my car a few months ago and the mechanic disconnected my servo pipe. The next day when I drove my car my car the breaks were solid and I was unable to break. I have made a serious complaint to the RAC but after 3 months they have not acknowledged this fault is due to the mechanic disconnecting the pipe. Can some one tell me if am right in my assumption that disconecting the pipe does result in this deadly fault? Thanks

Hi Paul. I have exactly the same problem. I've had a new turbo all injectors taken out and checked. I've been told it could be worn piston rings or valve stem seals. Mine also burns around a lt of oil every 800 miles or so. Does it run lumpy for the first min or so?? Danny from Kent

Hi my peoguet expert tepee hdi 1.6 2008 heater working on full i cannot slow it down but works on number 4 position any help plz.

Answers

This is caused by the blower speed control module.. or resistor.. some people call it e rheostat.. but it is pretty easy and cheap fix.. getting to it may be a bit of a potch because it is fitted to the heater blower housing.. you can get replacement on popular auction site but be aware that there may be variants for your vehicle.. changing old for new is disconnect power, undo a screw and remove the old resistor, replace with new and do everything back up... but you'll probs have to remove half the lower dash and glovebox to get to the heater blower. Not cost effective to get a used unit because you'll never know how much life is left in it. However, may also be worth checking the wiring connections to the module.. sometimes the connection is dirty and that can be all it takes. re from Caerphilly

Answer this question

Ruth, Cornwall

Peugeot Expert

I have water pouring into my passenger footwell after it rains, it isn't blocked drainage channels under the windscreen. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm wondering if it's the windscreen seal. It only happens when it's rained and the van isn't losing water at all so it's coming in from somewhere. If it is the windscreen seal any idea how much it would be to have it replaced or can I seal it myself? Thank you.

Answers

Ruth, try removing the glovebox and soundproofing to identify from underneath the dashboard where it is coming in.. you may find that there is a grommet feeding cabling or wiring into the cab, from the engine compartment. There is also a weatherstrip that seals the engine bay from inside cab at the point where the heater hoses enter the cab.. if that seal fails, you'll have water coming in. Removing the plastic dashboard trims may just allow you to see water marks where it's coming in. If it's the windscreen seal, then it will almost certainly be bonded.. not likely to leak unless incorrectly installed.. but that is not impossible.. happened on wifey's Clio after the rear screen shattered and was replaced.

Hi. Please can somebody put me in the picture when it comes to the odometer on my Peugeot Expert. For several weeks now the display has been slowly fading on the small display that tells me how many miles Ive done etc. I have of course gone through the usual checks, bulb, fuse etc. I have even been to the scrap yard and bought a completely new dash. Every thing else works fine. Clock,Speedo,Fuel Gage. Even with the good secondhand one it is still the same. No display. or very little. Ive got half numbers and then some numbers. It is really strange. Please can somebody help. I have an MOT due and I will need a good reading of my mileage for the MOT. Many thanks Andy
