Unhappy Peugeot 107 semi-auto problems

Hi everyone

I've just joined because I have a problem with my 2010 Peugeot 107 semi-auto which has been a really good car but things have gone wrong.

First I noticed that the clutch(?)was slipping so took it to the local garage where it has been serviced. They said I needed a new clutch which I agreed to.

When they returned it the car was awful to drive. It seemed to want to leap forward and shuddered when in gear. I rang them and they came and took it back. Next day they said they had changed all the transmission fluid (?) and that if it wasn't ok in a weeks time to take it back and it would need a new gearbox.

I have only done 18000 miles in it since new so I am not sure why these things have gone wrong. The clutch cost me 600. The car is long out of its warranty.

I don't know what to do. Sell it or scrap it to cut my losses? Or go ahead with the gearbox replacement?

Any advice would be appreciated!

What you should do..... first of all, never go back to that garage again. 600 is around what a Peugeot dealer would charge!

More likely that they did not have the tools to reset clutch actuator and the bodged it to get it working

I doubt the clutch was slipping after 18k either.... like you said, the clutch actuator needed to be reset and they ended up replacing the clutch itself.

Which makes me wonder why they changed the gearbox oil.... surely they would have changed it when doing the clutch change anyway?

Something smells really fishy here and it's not my salmon dinner.... Did they replace the clutch at all... and just attempt to reset the actuator... fail miserably and try again? Then smelling an easy payout... blame the gearbox... for which they will just take it somewhere else and charge for a new gearbox... hmm

Where are you located? Hopefully someone will know a specialist who can help you out or at the very least, get a valid, second opinion.

Thanks for all the advice, I am getting a second opinion from a Peugeot specialist.
