Default My first Peugeot- issues.....

Hi all, new to the forum, and indeed new to Peugeots! Up until now I've been an Italian car guy but fiat/Alfa had nothing big with a small engine, so I went French! I'm loving my 407, it's a 1.6 HDI ST Comfort with all the Bells and whistles! However it has what sounds like a fan belt noise which I assume is no biggy and I'll get it sorted. But if I apply a bit more revs than usual when pulling away the car will make an odd noise when I bring up the clutch. The clutch feels good nothing out of the ordinary- should I be worried about the noise??

Yes. Its a dual lass flywheel system and very expensive to repair.

crumbs!! The garage i bought it from gave me a 3 month engine/clutch warranty, would you reckon this would fall inside that warranty?

I'd check first. Clutches often come down as wear and tear because of use. Their warranty cover might be only for a failure due to a part breaking.

ah yes the ol "wear & tear" fine print!!

Just on the noise. just went out to the car started it up etc.... on start-up there is a short squeaking sound & its the same on shutting off the engine, is there any chance it could be anything other than the DMF?? The clutch feels fine, no vibration, it shifts into gears easily also.....(ok I'm hoping it's not DMF!!)

Is the noise then when you start it and:

The car is in neutral and pedal is untouched

The car is in neutral and the pedal is pressed down

?

its when i start the car & the clutch is fully pressed to the floor, its a force of habit that everytime i start a car i press the clutch fully to the floor - it was something i read in a handbook once & have always followed it. (sorry the car is also in neutral)

here's an odd question, how does a garage go about confirming if the DMF is the issue?? Is there an inspection hole (for want of a better term) or do they have to dismantle half the car???
