Hi all is the abs wiring loom on its own?
Can I buy a new one?
If what kind of price am I looking at?
Thanks for any info :thumb:
I would suggest ebay... a car breaker would be the cheapest option surely?

Anyway what part of the loom are you referring to? Sensors to ECU?

have you checked its not the dreaded and well known ABS issue that peugeots seem to suffer. i.e check the sensors, where they sit and the gap between sensor and ring is 2mm.

I've been done by the abs sensor approx 12 months ago !!!! It was coming up on planet as rear passenger wheel... So my garage swapped both rear sensors, but still came up with the error, rear passenger side... We then went ahead and replaced the hub. Gues what ?? Error still there rear passenger wheel... After reading a number of forums I suggested to the garge putting a new washer on the sensor altering the gap .... Would u believe it. Error codes disappeared !! Dearest washer I've ever had to pay for !!!!!!

You should only have to replace the ABS wiring if your wheel arch liner is broken or missing, or the plastic bag surrounding the ABS unit missing.

How does it look visually? Can you post a pic?

I've ordered a pp2000 but a garage said it had two errors 1 was rear passenger sensor and 2 said something about the pump jamming!
The sensor was replaced and the abs fault is intermittent...
I've cleaned the terminals and plug to the abs pump but didnt change anything.
I haven't got a bag around the pump, but I do have a wheel arch lining.

As its an intermittent fault I thought it could be the wiring as it comes on/off when it's -C and when I go over a bump.

Probably a long shot but did yours ever go in for the ABS recall?

Recall Details for PEUGEOT - 307

Local dealers can tell you

But if you have no sealing around it then its a similar issue, think that's what they did when mine was recalled

I've only had the car since new year.
It had the fault when I got it but I thought it was just going to be a case of sensor but the garage said it needed a new pump :nono:

That's because a new sensor = ££ but a new pump = £££££££££££££££££££

and more £ = more profit for garage!

I'll stake my reputation on it being the air gap on the new sensor they've fitted.

They'll have got the code, just assumed it to be faulty and replaced the sensor, not knowing about the common gap fault which affects just about every 307 of your age.

The garage gave me the read out after the sensor was fitted is says:
ABS Bosch eps8,
19.01.2015

Fault code: 21376
ABS RETURN PUMP -disturbed function.....

As Gibbo said, the problem with a ted in a shed garage replacing the sensor is as simple as that, wheel off, sensor off, sensor on, wheel on, job done.

With this ABS fault you have to remove the sensor, add a little WD40 and scrape all the rust off the mount to make it a level surface again. It takes some chipping away too not just a wire brush.

Then the sensor is particular about being re-seated. It has to be parallel to the ABS ring with a gap no more than 2mm. Sometimes a washer indeed has to be added to close the gap.

Not as simple as the garages think so could well be your problem.

When they plugged the car in it said that about the pump and rear sensor,
When they fitted a new sensor they plugged it in again and just came up as the pump fault..
So I don't think it's the sensor but I will have a go at using the pp2000 tomorrow afternoon and see what codes I get from it

some times a stone will damage the sensor ring as well as the air gap. I have had both problems, and the main fuse blow on the pump too... I hate ABS!!! I love my heralds brakes!

but the garage seems to know what they was on about.
I have heard horrible stories about garages changing all abs sensors (sometimes twice) and abs pump just because the mounting surface for the rear sensors was full of rust, the tester shows a faulty signal from the sensor, but the fault isn't because of the sensor, but because of the gab.
My own car had both rear sensors changed at a Peugeot/Citroën specialist garage not long before i got it, and just a few weeks after the fault was back. After a cleanup like in the thread, the brakes have been faultfree.
PS: i cleaned the mounting surfaces without removing the discs and calipers.
