Presumably the non turbo ones are just left to fall apart as far as Peugeot is concerned.
At the moment yes.

Peugeot are only doing this recall due to the possible loss of braking assistance due to turbocharged versions requiring a engine driven vacuum pump to operate the brake servo assistance.

Hello everyone I’m new to the forum, really impressed with lots of great helpful advice. I’ve a 2017 GT Line 110 ultimate red - similar to a previous posted i had engine light and oil warnings in October 2020. Low compression on all three cylinders, nee engine under warranty at 29,000 miles. A shock I’d have to say as I check my car oil and fluids weekly as I enjoy the maintenance side. Literally was quick. Just had the JZR recall letter through myself and booked in, will be interested to see if any issues with the new engine in mine now. Will find out in 2 weeks! I’m curious how many others with same engine have had same failure requiring a new engine? Thanks everyone

Very similar to my story! We have a 2016 Peugeot 308SW 130 1.2 Puretech, bought in August 2019, and following 3 dealer investigations for unknown oil consumption, a new engine was issued in January/February 2020.

Like you, I'm also concerned about the new engine. This car has been the worst I've owned, the exhaust more or less fell off last year as well - on a 4 year old car!

Following this thread with interest, got my 2015 308 booked in for the 12th March. Be interested to hear how others get on that have the recall work done.

Hi everyone, wondering if anyone can help or has similar issues. I have received the same letter for the JZR recall.

So for just over a month my EML goes on then switches off after a day or 2 then back on and off, once going into limp mode. I had taken it to a peugeot specialist, diagnostic check the code p0011 inlet camshaft dephaser came up and said the timing belt would need changed etc. Taken to peugeot who done the update but didn't change the belt and next day EML comes back on again.

I need the car for essential work wondering if its caused by the recall issues as peugeot want £125 for a new diagnostic check and prob more for the work to fix it.

Any ideas, much appreciated

Peugeot won't replace the timing belt unless it fails the width check with there official measurement gauge.

Hi JJ,

I had the fault code P0011 come up too, so I bought 2 timing solenoids and relplaced them myself. No problems since then !

Thats perfect Mike, cheers, I was thinking the solenoids might be the issue but wasn't 100%. Bought the car recently so still under warranty so will get it sorted

You will likely find just removing the solenoid & cleaning the bits of timing belt rubber out from it will cure that issue.

So I received the recall letter myself a week or so ago, the car is booked in to be sorted at the local dealer next week.
On the way home Friday I pulled into my drive and the engine management light came on. I have a warranty through Hartwells, which is who I bought the car from. I phoned them up and they have diagnosed the fault as the timing being off. Had to give the go ahead to have the engine stripped down to find out why, I believe the mechanic is aware of the faults as the first thing he was going to do was drain and remove the sump to check the lift pump isn't blocked.
They told me that if it turns out to be the cam belt then it is not covered under the warranty as it is a wear and tear component. Car has only covered 40k miles.
I'm genuinely concerned that Peugeot will not pay for the repair as it is not at a main dealer, its at a general Hartwells garage and my warranty will not cover it.
I had no choice but to take it to them as I was unaware of this fault and thought it would be a separate issue.
Peugeot have been very coy with their wording of the issue, blaming the braking system for the recall and not the cam belt failing, causing the loss of the braking system.

Do you think peugeot will pay for the repair?

Having dealt with Peugeot " lack of " customer service last year over another Puretech design issues - I'd say highly unlikely.

Took Peugeot UK 3 weeks after pressure from myself & the Peugeot main dealer for them to finally agree to an out of warranty repair to a Peugeot approved used vehicle with full Peugeot main dealer service history & only 34k miles on at the time.

With receiving the recall letter Peugeot have admitted there's a fault.
Your vehicle was already booked in for the recall before it broke down.

If you can prove the service history is up to date, done on time & only Peugeot approved oil was used - you may be able to get a repair contribution from Peugeot UK.

There have been plenty of Peugeot / Citroen owners that have already paid out to have the failed timing belt replaced, some done outside the PSA dealer network & now getting a recall letter admitting there's a known fault.
Theres going to be plenty of people out of pocket over these timing belts failing / destroying engines.

Got mine back this morning. The belt was within tolorences and there was a software update. With only 25500 miles on the clock I wasn't expecting any problems. I wonder if this check will become part of the normal checks during servicing.
Hi, took mine today ( Tuesday ) at 10 am, said it would take no more than 6 hrs, when I phoned they said it won’t be ready until Wednesday, it is a 2016 208 puretec with 21.500 mls on the clock seem‘s like a long time to me. Did it take that long for yours to be updated? TIA

Has your timing belt failed the measurement check & required replacement?

Hi,thanks for your question, I’ve no idea they haven’t told me anything yet, is that down to me to pay for that, I wouldn’t have thought so with have such low mileage.

If it fails the check during the recall visit then Peugeot should pick up the bill for replacing the timing belt.
