Re: Noise when reversing

I used to get a drone or groan noise when I had a 2017 Allure 1.6 bluehdi auto. Eventually the noise disappeared. It happened immediately after selecting reverse but also with a very slight turn of the steering wheel. I thought it was maybe from the brakes?

Re: Android auto/mirror link

Flemtyke,
Android Auto will only work with a USB cable. If you don't have Android Auto on your phone, then you need to install it. Once you have installed AA and connected with a good quality USB cable, there will be some settings to use. YouTube is a good source of the setup.

Re: Towbar

Kev,
it makes sense if you want to mount a bike take. After a few bruised shins, I went detachable. Also I do prefer my rear end to be neat and tidy. Lol

Re: Towbar

Kev, I can't comment on a fixed towbar as I have a detachable. When I drive with the detachable installed it does not interfere with the sensors. I would be surprised if the fixed towbar gives any problems. The detachable is unobtrusive when disconnected and the electric socket swings up out of view...

Re: Mudflaps

Car manufacturers go to great lengths to provide a decent paint finish to reduce chances of corrosion. In fitting these mudflaps you'll be drilling part of the body thus exposing bare metal which will eventually rust, Why ruin a car body to fit something as non sensical as mus flaps? Official OEM m...

Re: Mudflaps

Hi Kevie, I amin the same position as you. I have decided to discard the pop rivets and use large head screws instead. These require a 5mm drill. The front flaps can probably done without removing the wheels. The rears will need to wheels off as there is no room. I have a right angled drill adapter ...

Re: Strange noise when turning off car

I think from previous turbocharged car's that I have owned, the turbocharger is cycled by a servo motor. This is to make sure the vanes are free moving. Maybe someone with more technical knowledge will explain it better?

Re: 2019 model 3008 GTLine 1.5d auto.

You can turn off the internal and motion sensors. The button is on the right of the steering wheel at about knee level. I use it on the ferry to the Isle of Wight, works perfectly. I think you get 10 seconds after pressing the button to get out of the car and lock it? Install the Scan My Peugeot app...

Re: Engine start / stop not working

The stop/start system has to have a number of criteria met for it to work. Battery charge condition being the one of the important ones. Winter is the time of the year that stops it working the most, due to power used for demisting, heating and short trips. My stop/start has not worked since late Oc...
