Your car has a large filter in the exhaust , it cleans itself when you do a long run on the motorway but gets blocked quickly if you only do short runs , there is a tank of fluid under the car as well that helps the cleaning process,

this fluid runs out between 80,000 to 120,000 miles , the filter blocks and you have a couple of options ,

1, clean filter yourself , refill fluid and with diagnostics reset fluid counters (around 60 -100)

2, remove filter and remap car (around 300)

3,bring to Peugeot who will do number 1 above and screw the life out of you.( around (600- 800)

Option 2 is the technically the only permanent fix, as arguably the option 1 and option 2 lend themselves to it happening again, depending on how long you own the car for.

But as betty says, those are your options.

Default Re mapping

Hi does anyone know of re mapping actually working to correct the problem i have with the 407 to turn the warning light out for the particle filter. I have been told that i can have the FAP removed and the car re mapped. Is the FAP the catalyst. If so surely it won't pass an MOT? Thanks.

That depends on your location. Also some CAT/FAPs are a sealed unit, others are not, like mine. I removed the FAP, then I removed the CAT, I'm glad I did.

Here in the UK for diesels we only have a smoke test, you will pass on the first acceleration if you come in at 1.5m-1 smoke density, if it doesn't then 3.0m-1 (for Turbocharged engines) is all that is required for a pass.

There is no legal requirement for a CAT on Petrols or Diesels, the legal requirement comes from meeting the emissions standards... a petrol is highly unlikely to do this without it's CAT so you could say removing the CAT is illegal. Diesels remain unaffected, my car still barely smokes having a complete straight through system.

Just be clear, I don't work in the legal system, this is entirely based off the research I've done in the UK.

Phil
