Default Evidence of a 'botchup'?

Could anybody throw some light on to the images below? Bought the car from a main dealer nearly 3 years ago with 10000 on the clock in the first 8 months from registration. The car has been impeccable and sailed through its first MOT and has run and still does with no problem. It has now 30000 on the clock. However about a fortnight ago the 'anti pollution is faulty' together with red engine warning light appeared on startup - the red light remaining on but the anti pollution warning disappearing on driving.

Thankfully there is a fellow forum member who lives locally with planet peugeot (Vorn) - unfortunately he could not get the system to work. But he did have a bluetooth code scanner. It produced a P0342 code - Camshaft Position Sensor "A" Circuit Low. So I think I can get the problem sorted.

But I would be grateful if any fellow forum members could look at the images and tell me what they think.

What is it you suspect?

The only thing that I can see is evidence of a repair on what looks like the dash by the glovebox. Can't see what that would have to do with an anti-pollution fault. Agreed the repair isn't the best in the world and doesn't look very pretty but if it's a solid repair and is hidden under normal circumstances it could be lived with. I'm curious as to wether you have just found this fault and do you think it is relevant with the fault as you have lived with it for three years without issues so far without any previous problems.

Don't think it has anything to do with 'anti pollution faulty warning' - but was curious as to why the wires would appear to have been reconnected ie evidence of taping on each of the sets of cables. Is it a sign that the car has been 'clocked'? or am I just being paranoid?

Default Evidence of a 'botchup'

Looking at the last photo, it looks like the panel has broken and someone has tried to hot weld (melt ) the plastic back together, or it has melted due to burnt wiring.. Think it is the former rather than the latter.

I think the wiring looks perfectly normal, there are bits of insulating tape all over my wiring, I don't see a reason to be suspicious, the plastic repair is a bit messy but otherwise good.

The OBD socket looks wonky, but the plastic clips that hold them in are crap and any exuberance in removing a scanner could break a clip.

The cam position fault has been documented on here many times, the sensor can be removed and cleaned and put back in place as a first check...

That tape is how the loom is made. It keeps the loom tidy and helps protect the individual cables from being accidentally pulled. Nothing wrong with the loom and clocking is done with specialist electronic equipment with no need to cut wires so yes - you are being paranoid.

Many thanks to fellow forum members who have taken the time to look at my post, and especially to those who have offered their opinions. You have put my mind at rest.
