Default 1999 Peugeot 1.8 16v SR couple of issues

This is my 1999 Peugeot 1.8 16v SR is has a couple of issues



The brake pedal seems to be loosing pressure. We checked the vacuum hoses we could access from the top using brake cleaner (my colleague is a bit of a tech guy) and we imagined we heard something in the manifold area but are not sure. Made an appointment with the shop, they will inspect the brakes next week Thursday. Now I have to floor it to get the car to slow down, an MOT failure for sure. Any help/suggestions appreciated very much.

Checked the fuses as the window wash doesn't work, no luck, all fuses look ok. Could not discover which one is meant to be for the washer motor.
Don't have a Haynes but guess the front wheel and a panel have to be removed in order to be able to access the fluid motor? Or can it be fixed another way? Any help/suggestions appreciated very much.

The rear floor mat behind the driver seat was soaking wet with water, no clue if it entered the car from top or bottom.

Can't get my obd2 to work, protocol error, colleague said to plug in/unplug several times to clean the contact surfaces, will try asap.

One of the hub caps damaged, ordered a used one.

Radio is not in good nick, have a nice spare Kenwood to replace it with. Pitty the car only has 2 front speakers.

That's about it I think. This car puts a smile on my face every time. This morning while driving to work I got the urge to drive straight to the Franch Alps

Brake problem could be a loose fitting diaphragm in the servo.

Thanks Gibbo.

Would that mean a servo replacement or can a servo itself be repaired?

No luck w. obd2

Oh I forgot, the center display as well as the clock are completely black, not showing any info.

Am very curious where the fuse of the window washer motor is, any clue please?

There's a couple of threads on a 306 forum. You can pop the diaphragm back in place with a pencil. But on some if the seals have gone in the reservoir then brake fluid seeps in and causes damage.

Brakes seem to work ok again

As the transmitter doesn't work I've been using they key to open and close the car, now it looks like the lock itself is turning around, had to lock it on the passengers side.

And water rear behind driver seat in passenger footwell, ohhhhhhboy

Manuals here:

INFOTEC - Service Box Peugeot

Get a Haynes from Ebay:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Peugeot-4...gAAOSwi0xaBBSv

Water in rear footwell could be a bad rear passenger door seal was on my 306.

See my thread on the 307 boot leak and how to clean up the rubber and re-attach.

Thanks again Gibbo, I own the user manual, no mention of the fuse I am looking for.

Ordered a Haynes last week, it's been shipped and should be delivered next week. I need to know all there is to know abt this pump.

Will check the seal, all ready inspected but will take a closer look.

Meanwhile the brakes fixed themselves and car has adequate stopping power and that in a straight line, must have been caused by it not being used the last two months or so. It is an old car and old stuff needs to be kept in motion.

Thanks again.
