I got a 19 plate 308sw 1.2 puertech 130bhp last month, sorry to find this thread!
Thanks for the updates, looks like I'll need to change my timing belt in 40,000 miles (have about 23,000 miles on the clock), does anyone know the cost for this? I do quite high mileage so that's probably in about 2 years.
I switched from diesel to petrol as I do a lot of town driving and thought petrol was better suited as it doesn't have a dpf to clog up, but it seems this puretech has it's own clogging-up issues with bits coming off the belt!
What a shame, the engine is great to drive.
Hi.JZR recall campaign for the Puretech 110 / 130 finally hits the UK ( already rolling out across Europe ) - measure / check the timing belt & update the software.
Failure of the timing belt can damage the brake vacuum pump which can lead to loss of braking assistance.
UK owners can check there VIN on the link below.

My 308 has been recalled by Peugeot but it's not on the DVSA database yet.
Concerns March 2013 - April 2017 built Puretech 110 / 130 engines.
Yes, As a 2019 model owner I can’t say my mind is at rest about this issue, let’s hope the new belt is up to the job.I just wondering which is major upgrade for Puretech built after april 2017 ?
My 9/2018 308 runs Dayco belt with yellow letters. Engine with gasoline particle filter.
If you get a recall letter then YES it needs to go in.Hi all, my Peugeot 308sw 1.2 had a completely new engine last year - car was using oil and no explanation could be found. Quite worrying regardless that a 4 year old car would require a new engine.
Software aside, would the other elements in this recall apply to this car due to the new engine? (I don't know what exactly was replaced, although I have asked for documentation)
