You might have to take a trip to Donny and spend the day wondering round.
407 HEATER BOX REPAIR - Specialising in Peugeot expert E7 Taxi RHK engines supply and fit 2008-2012 or supply only. recently recommended on here and I think cost wise was around £260ish.
Peugeot Planet owner, Doncaster
£240 actually and a 2 hour job (2 men).Not a lot to do in Edenthorpe on a Saturday Morning so I sat in the garage and chatted about golf with the boss while they worked their magic. Highly recommended. It's free according to the website lol. Perhaps they are taking pity on us poor 407 owners. Well worth a drive from Wigan I'd say, just take a thick blanket to keep your legs warm on the motorway, you'd enjoy the drive back :)

I have just done this sort of and yes it is a full dash out job but its not the worst dash to remove although the pipes will be hard to get to with engine in place if you are removing whole heater with dash like I did as I was stripping the car !

It looks like the dash can be removed without the heater attached but I did not try once dash is off you can see the broken flaps and the repair looks easy enough remove lots of screws remove broken flaps and refit

Certainly would not be scared to tackle job if needed in future.

My repair. As done by RTN. Flaps not replaced but repaired. Still going strong, probably better then replacing them although they did say they would have to remove the heater box to replace the flaps if the broken off motor end bit bit had disappeared but I've heard there is a way of getting new ones in without doing this. Luckily they managed to fish mine out, I had prodded it further down while trying to get it out through the top vent with a stick and blu tack :(

Dead easy fix, its getting at them that's the tricky job. Shame they weren't manufactured correctly to start with.

Yes they are a great bunch of lads and I'm sure you will drive away happy, they can do this job with their eyes closed they have done so many. Please report how you got on.

New flaps from peugeot are strengthened. They are around £60. Pity you werent in N.Ireland. Did they just glue the old ones?
They were glued together then reinforced along the shaft with a steel strip drilled and screwed on with holes filled with araldite. It looked solid enough and I'm happy with it. They said they would have to take the heater box out to put new ones in and it would be twice the price.
