I bought a 307 1.6 rapier petrol 2002 second hand less than a week a go. It had a year's mot and service history. However after driving it only twice the engine management light came on the dash and immediately the gear box failed. I managed to free wheel it to a safe place and there it has stayed.does this mean the gear box has failed and will need replacing or is there another reason this could happen?

On the left hand side of steering wheel you will find the controls for your cruise control,it looks the same as your radio remote control,on the stalk is a part you can turn with your fingers,you need to turn it until it turns your cruise control off and your speed limit off,usually in the middle setting,I hope this helps.

I use to hear squeaky noise for a while when in drive gear and idling. This noise got worse particularly at the start, at traffic light and worse at turning at slow speed. No noise at normal running and high speed. I took it to the garage. They suspected and changed two pulleys and the belt without success. Then they suspected and changed the alternator without success. Now they suspect some electrical fault and my repair bill is mounting up. I am going to see the manager this morning (22/04/2017). Please advise if anyone came across similar issue.....Thanks

Peugeot 307

Hi, I have a Peugeot 307 1.4 petrol and recently the Anti-Pollution Fault light came on out of the blue. After the first time I took my car to my garage, they put it on a computer and read the code. My mechanic told me that the catalytic converter will need to be replaced if the light comes on again. They put an additive in the fuel tank to clean out the system and told me to drive home on the motorway which I did. The car was fine and no light came on for a week but after doing around 1000km driving the warning light has come on again. I have to say that my car drives without any problems, no shuddering, no smell from the exhaust or anything else that feels different than before the warning light first came on. I understand from reading various forums that in other cases the problem was solved by changing the O2 sensors, coil packs, spark plugs or faulty injector but NOT the catalytic converter. So I am wondering if my mechanic is wrong by saying the cat is the problem. Please can somebody enlighten me? Claudia

Answers

If you have a faulty oxygen sensor or a fault in the ignition system it will result in excess fuel going into the CAT which can damage it. They read your fault codes then did the right thing in putting an additive in the fuel to see if it would clean out the system but it doesn't appear to have worked. You can mess around changing parts but it seems like they told you the CAT would need changed. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Many thanks Hugh for your reply! I will get the cat changed as recommended. Claudia Overy from Cyprus

my heating will work on setting 1 and 2 but when I turn it up to 4 I have no heating sometimes banging the side panel of dash it starts to work can anyone tell me whats up thanks

Answers

If you are referring to the heater fan then the switch internals are making a poor connection, unplug the switch at the connecting plug and use contact cleaner, if that fails try and open the switch itself and clean those internal contacts, if that fails buy a new switch. The fact the fan works fine on the slower settings indicates the fan motor is OK, when they start to fail it's usually the slower speeds that give up the ghost first. Mick from Portugal

I have a damp problem in the nearside front footwell and cannot find where the water is coming from. The carpet gets wet even when the car is standing and it rains. Can anyone help please

Answers

I had this problem and was advised it was a fault with the heater matrix. It would be water from the cooling system that is entering the footwell. KevM from Cardiff

Hello, First question: Does it get wetter if it DOESN'T rain? This will allow you to rule out a windscreen/body leak. I've just had a similar issue fixed. For me, it was the o-rings between the radiator and the heater core. During my own investigations, discussions online and with mechanics suggested several options. Not I only noticed the moisture after a large downpour so thought it a body leak issue first. Anyway, options are: 1. Windscreen or other body leak 2. Drainage holes underneath wiper assembly blocked (e.g. with leaves) - I had this checked and the above checked first by a windscreen place 3. Radiator / heater core pressure test - radiator service place. In my case, this found and fixed my O-ring problem 4. [would have been next] Air conditioning overflow Item 3 will be evident if you are loosing coolant. This will be gradual if it is the O-ring problem. Good luck! Carl from Australia

My front indicator on the right doesn't seem to be working. The back and side work fine. When selecting the right indicator it ticks twice as fast. I was advised to replace the bulb and that I can do it myself but I don't know how to. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Answers

Sounds like your front right indicator bulb has blown. How to change this is explained quite well in the manual, in mine on page 125/126, section "Changing a bulb", dot item 4 "Direction indicators". Remove the trim (above the expansion vat) to get access to rear of light unit. Turn the bulb holder one quarter of a turn (anti-clockwise seen from inside) and pull out; replace bulb and put back in. Test, when OK then put trim back. If not OK, maybe fuse? Patrick from Australia

Hi everyone! Hoping that someone can help me! I have recently bought Peugeot 307, 2002 Automatic and for the last couple of time I drove it there's this strange beeping coming out of the radio screen with a message saying Storing Automatic? I'm assuming it's saying Automatic as it doesn't show me anything else on the screen. Today when it happened, the car kinda slowed down and it took me a good 10 second to build up speed again. I have read that lots of people saying it could be anti pollution thing but it doesn't say that on the radio screen and there's no light showing me anything on the dashboard! Anyone knows what it is? I'm scared to drive it as I don't want to break down. Please help!
