Hello the issue is a creaking noise from the rear I had the car checked out by a local garage who have confirmed it's the rear axle. They say it's not been welded properly.

There is a modification for the early 308 T9 rear axles that involves injecting foam in to the axle to stop the noises.

Peugeot changed the manufacturing process for the rear axle to cure the problem.

I would take the car to a Peugeot main dealer & ask there advice as there service department will be a wear of the issue.

If the car has a full Peugeot service history you may even get an out of warranty goodwill fix.

I agree. I'm pretty sure they will fix this for you as it was common in 14/15 plates.

If not, contact customer services and complain, they'll get it sorted.

They might try to change a rubber part called flexible joint but the problem will be fixed only with changing the rear axle. I also made a complaint to both France and Australia Peugeot and got my axle changed.

Took mine in for service 2 days ago and asked peugeot to investigate a creaking sound at the rear of the car , on my invoice it says......axle creak - cross member requires repacking with foam , estimated cost of repair , 230.00 , will need vehicle over night to cure .

So i've booked car in for next week .

Who is picking up the 230 repair bill seeing as it's a known manufacturing defect?

I can't say for UK, but in Denmark, it was covered under warranty with no questions asked, they even have a "Issue number"/Campaign number or something for it.. i think this has also been sent out as a recall.. so there should be no question of who is paying the bill.

I have mine "fixed" with the foam solution.. and so far it is working without issue. I have asked my Peugeot dealer to write on the invoice, if this foam solution does not fix it, i want the whole rear axle changed without cost to me.. they told me this will not be a issue and they will change it without any questions.

Minor disclaimer: I have bought my car and have done all services at the same dealer - this could be the reason of all the goodwill.. but im not sure.
