Exclamation HELP... My 307sw has advisories for passing MOT

Hi
Need some advice and guidance on the 3 advisories my car recieved with passing this years MOT in April - Pug have already quoted 797.00 to do the work for me but would prefer to do what i can myself to save money.
  1. Exhaust heat sheilds broken around turbo
  2. Both ns & os track rods steering rack side
  3. Oil leak from Air Doser

I have a Haynes manual but can't seem to find any answers in it... Can you point out where i can find each part and whether i would be able to replace myself.

I do have some ideas on the track rods but believe i need a special tool as to not damage the joint and the air doser could just be some leaky seals???

Thank you
Sarah

Welcome aboard!

1. You'd need to lift the car up and take off the old heat shield to see what needs doing. Chances are the mount holes have rotted away. You can get replacements cheaply enough on Ebay.

2. Track Rods are covered in the Haynes manual in section 10.13.

3. The Air Doser leak is a common issue on Peugeots.

They are supposed to be able to be re-sealed but I've seen a couple of 307s where this hasn't worked.

You can get a genuine replacement for about 90.

But search on here for "air doser" and you'll see the discussions.

Air dozier leaks can be cured with good quality sealer (and this is the preferred factory repair) make sure the unit is cleaned with brake cleaner before applying sealer though.

As regards the heatshields, this is very common. The inner top one can be temporarily fixed using a large washer or a spring.

Regarding the tie rods, you'll need a special tool to remove them and the tracking will have to be reset afterwards.

Thanks to both of you.
With the track rods being 'rack side' is that the inside or outer side (furthest away from the wheel?)
And just out of interest i had a very loose/slak handbrake the other week but has since gone tight again without me making any adjustments to the cable - Does this particular model self adjust?

Would you advise buying parts from Peugot or are pattern parts ok to use?

IIRC the handbrake is self adjusting.

As for parts, price up genuine and third party. Sometimes genuine parts can be the same price or very close.
