Default 1.2 puretech 130 servicing

Fast approaching my 2-year service with 6,200 miles on the clock but cannot find any documentation on exactly what is required for this service.
Using the Peugeot app on my phone and online, it seems that Peugeot want to charge me 200+ for a 'standard service' plus also wanting to do spark plugs, brake fluid, air filter and pollen filter - total just under 500.
This seems rather excessive to me for a low mileage car. Additionally, I would have expected spark plugs and air filter to be included in the standard service.
Can I ask what other owners have paid for this service please and what should be included.
Many thanks.

How much??!!!
My RCZR is cheaper to service (2 year) than that, and that has 4 expensive spark plugs!

For reference, the service schedule is in the service book, if you dont do the miles then go by the age of the car to what needs doing but 500+ quid is taking the p a bit. Go up north, have a nce weekend break with a bit of shopping, drop your car off for a service (this includes hotel btw) and it will be cheaper than what you are being charged for! (Honestly, do it, at least you get to have a nice break as well 😉 )

This thing about changing brake fluid every 2 years - I'm doubtful it's necessary. I've never done it - my oldest car is 25 years old and I've had it for 18. It's supposed to be because the fluid absorbs water, but no-one explains how the water is supposed to get into it.

the water get into the brake fluid by air. The air contains humid and humid becomes water. water inside the fluid makes bubble (sort of) and when you hit the brake, the pressure can not be transferred strongly into the piston.

Hi..as above...with modern braking systems the fluid must be at its optimum due to a.b.s. and traction control and emergency braking and anything else....the fluid in the calipers gets very hot as well....so good fluid is required

Hi again...I asked if the service contract I have was mileage based...no...so at any service i will ask for the old parts(not oil filter)plugs/pollen/air filter and hang onto them and reuse when the contract ends...yep im being tight...but to change parts before they have done much mileage seems a waste...

As above brake fluid is hygroscopic so it absorbs moisture from the air (via the breather hole in the cap) and you can get creep from moisture on the caliper pistons.

The other issue other than lowering the boiling point of the fluid is the water travel through the fluid and causes internal corrosion of caliper and wheel cylinder pistons and ABS valves.

I change my fluid around every 3-4 yrs based on the readings of my brake fluid tester. It's a easy job with a easibleed or similar and does not cost a fortune normally 500ml-1ltr of fluid is enough. You can see the degradation in the fluid as the old fluid is darker in colour when you bleed the brakes

You change the brake fluid every 3/4 years, so you are saying doing every two years is a bit excessive.
Mine is now over 2 years old, brake fluid still looks as new compared to a new bottle of the stuff.

But everything is now on safety overkill.

Based on my brake fluid tester yes two years is over kill. I only get an amber warning after 3 or 4 yrs so change it then.

I do not know how accurate the tester is as it is only a basic one from eBay but but appears to do the job.

I did also check an old bottle of fluid that was over 6 yrs old I found in my grandads garage and that gave a red warning which to me shows it works ok

Yes, old brake fluid in a bottle doesn't last either. Maybe if it is really well sealed and full. But half empty, the shelf life is no longer than the fluid in the braking system.

Though I thought the later Dot 4 fluid was less hygroscopic than earlier versions.

Didn't know about testers, had a quick look and they cost from just under a fiver on Ebay. Are those any good or did you buy a better one?
