Default Emissions fault - new fuel tank?

Hi I have a 2016 2008. Yesterday my engine fault, UREA and adblue lights came on. The car was serviced in June and adblue was added. I took it back to my garage and they checked it and said that the valve is stuck closed and I need to bring it back to the dealer. The fuel tank may have to be replaced. They said it was a peugeot manufacturing issue. Before I contact the dealer does anyone have any similar experience and can I argue that its a Peugeot fault? Thanks!

Thanks so much for replying. Hopefully it will be an easier fix than that.

It's the Adblue tank which may have to be changed not the fuel tank. All because Peugeot didn't fit a cap which vented, so as the adblue level dropped a vacuum is caused in the tank, thus overloading the adblue pump which is a part of the tank assembly.

There are several threads on this in different sections of this forum.

So, having just bought a 15 plate 2008 diesel, is it worth drilling a small vent hole in the adBlue tank cap?
