Angry 307 abs nightmare!

i have a 52 plate 307 with neverending abs problems, i have had the car about 18 months within a few days of driving it the abs light can on then abs brake fault and handbrake light! this turned out to be the megafuse.

Recently abs light came on again! and now intermittently braking fault and handbrake light! i have spent a fortune with different people and nobody really knows what they are doing, when plugged in it says right hand rear sensor fault, i have had this replaced but still not picking up a reading, also had the back plate cleaned, have been advised to check the wiring around heatshield , puta washer behind sensor to close air gap or clean connections on multiplug? obviously i am not a mechanic and desperately need someone who knows what they are doing to fix this once and for all.
P.s: apparently peugeot recalled the car prior to me owning it for water ingress to the pump, and my pump has a 'bag' over it, however they accept no liability and want to charge me 85 just to look at it.
Can anyone reccomend a competent mechanic with experience of this? i am in strood, kent.
Thanks.

Get them bitches to check that out because it doesnt sound like they did a very good during recall in the first place as for everything else, maybe try checking your brake light switch... not sure about anything esle as they seem to have tried most of things that usualy work. i would suggest testing the wiring cables, maybe some other than abs cable is broken between the abs sensor and the abs control unit.

Hi Tony,i had this problem with my car,you don't need to be a mechanic to fix it as long as you can remove the rear wheel you should be able to fix this yourself, so step 1,put the car in gear,chock the wheels so it wont roll and then jack it up and remove the offending wheel,then you'll see the 4 holes that bolt the wheel on,turn the wheel around slowly to the point where you can see the the allen key head that holds the ABS sensor on,(might need a flashlight to see it) at this point place ,i think a 5 or 6mm allen key in and undo the bolt and remove the sensor,then you need to find something very thin, i used a plastic guitar pletrum,(being plastic it won't corrode) cut out a small washer,put a hole in it and then place it behind the sensor and put it all back together. whilst its apart its probably worth getting some carb cleaner and spraying it in their and cleaning the copper coloured ring that faces the sensor. the thin plastic washer you have made or what ever you choose to use should close the gap between the sensor and drum to about .5 of a mm,all back together you should be good to go. hope this helps

Our 307 Xsi used to have a ABS fault all the time. It was the rear passenger side. All we did was unplug it and plugged it back in, and really made sure it was plugged in properly and its never come back on again. I think the connections are sometimes not quite plugged properly and, of course, driving on the road it could wiggle itself loose.

Hi Matt,
Thanx for that, will give it a go, why does the car need to be in gear? and chocked? why not engine off and handbrake on? also does anyone know if there is a multifuse actually on the abs pump 30w green one? someone suggested taking front passenger wheel off and wing lining to check a fuse in the unit itself? have checked the engine bay ones as the green one in there has been the culprit in the past.
Joys of owning a 307 dont think in the nearly two years ive had it i have had no lights on for more than a few months! one problem after another!.

If you are parked with handbrake on, how will you manage to turn the rear wheel?

Its good practice whenever removing a wheel to always park in gear and chock the wheels.

Sorry Tony my bad,chocked so it won't roll,handbrake off actually, so you can spin the rear wheel around,this way you can line up the wheel bolt hole with the ABS sensor bolt and then get your allen key in.
