you could try clenaing them up but chances are you have a dead sensor. If there is no one in norfolk with planet is it worth you purchasing it yourself? it will pay for itself within two code readings.
I have changed front and rear sensors on a 407 in the past, front need drilling out, think i used an 8.5mm drill. The rear need the tank straps lowering about 10mm to allow the plugs for the sensors to pass over it.

Norwich and Wymondham. I'm guessing you didn't read the instructions properly:

If there's nobody close, there is a similar map on frenchcarforum.co.uk - they may be Citroen drivers though, and may not be able to help with specific Peugeot technical queries - but it should be enough to get a diagnostic and bring the information here.

I had three ABS sensors fail within a month of one another. The problem was that this activates a safety feature where the power steering pump keeps running even after you switch the ignition off, presumably because the car can't determine whether the wheels are actually turning or not. A rather expensive episode.
