First of here little info about my 307,I got my 307 1.6 hdi sw 2006 from carcraft 18 month ago after 5 months the turbo went and got fix by carcraft for free,and then 12 month later the turbo went again and just cost me £1057 to get new one plus pipes and engine flush,

now ive got another 2 problems

Problem 1 is big oil leak from camshaft seal

Problem 2 is electric i think coz when i got start car nothing will happem just dead no noise but will bump start fine

The airbag warning light could possibly be the wiring under the front seats, as i believe its a common problem.
If carcraft replaced the turbo and it's only last five months, are you not covered by at least a 12 month warranty?
If it's only bump starting, is the battery and starter motor ok?

When I hear a turbo goes on a 307 I immediately start to think the car concerned is a lemon. There is absolutely no reason a turbo should fail prematurely unless the car has not been well serviced and been mistreated.

Unfortunetly tied in with your other issues, I would say the car you bought is just that and the engine is not in good condition (multiple turbo failure is usually caused by something else within the engine) nor your car in general.

I think the car would need a lot of diagnosis to confirm the reason for multiple turbo failure, possible engine overhaul, and a decent amount of labour to warrant a bill more expensive than the car itself. With your electrical issues, diagnosis again prefably by the Peugeot dealer themselves would be most ideal.

I dont mean to scare you but I have seen this too many times before and money will no doubtably have to be spent to fix your car appropiately.

The moral of the story; service the car at the intervals recommended religiously to minimise issues with reliability.

I don't think it's the battery or starting motor coz I had same problem few month back when I got turn key nothing would happen and at same time was having trouble with door locks and windows,and then after few days like that everything just starting fine again.

I've phone Peugeot dealer and they said will do diagnostic for £90 so might have to do that

The car has been service twice in the 18 month I've had it and only done 18,000 ,but when the turbo went no local garage would touch it coz they said its common problem and would only go again so had take it to turbo specialist

First time the turbo went in that car the engine was rubbish. Incorrect or bad quality oil and a poor service history is usually to blame thats my opinion based on experience.
Service intervals on that engine highly reccommended at 8k. They very rarely give trouble with this interval.

Carcraft - they don't have a good reputation - and have been on 'Watch Dog', 'The Ferret' and all them lot.

Sometimes you've just got to be brave and cut your losses.
