Yes I did thanks dude, and much appreciated again for going out of your way to help me out, your a legend mate. I'll sort something out next couple days !
That dephaser link doesn't work just says site can't be reached.
ill share my experience even if it doesnt help (i had the same code reading).
i brought a 207 cheap off a neighbor since he said a garage had the timing chain changed and it just needed a new inlet dephaser (£50). so i started stripping the engine to investigate and found that the top chain guide was snapped off and was loose in the top of the engine and the timing was out by a couple of teeth (probably because the tensioner had snapped)
I changed the timing chain, guides and tensioner (apparently bmw modified the tensioner because it was faulty) i also changed the inlet dephaser just to make sure but after putting it all back together after 3 days of driving and lack of power the code came back on.
i started messing with the engine once again and found that both of the solenoid mesh's were clogged up with metal filings which came from the broken chain guide (you could see the wear on them)
i feel stupid that i didnt check them sooner but you live and learn. the car has ran fine now for over 6 months after cleaning the solenoids
i hope my experience helps.
quick note. The timing chain was never changed before i brought the car... any idiot could tell it wasn't. the white chain guides were stained dark brown with wear and the plastic was brittle and snapped very easily for example. never trust a car seller haha iv learnt my lesson.
Hi guys rang my local garage and have been quoted £350-400 for this job and just out of curiosity I rang my local Peugeot dealer and have been quoted £30 for the cam dephaser (is this the correct part) and £65 for fitting which seems unusual Peugeot are cheaper than my local can anyone confirm that Peugeot are looking at the correct part to replace for this fault please ??
Just been to Peugeot and checked the quote and they quoted me for a cam position sensor, how on earth they got that from me asking for a price on the dephaser solenoid lol, anyways the dephaser solenoid is £75 +vat and fitting and said an 1-2 hours and at £100 labour per hour could be a big bill.
Can I replace the solenoid myself or does it need any adaptions or software sorting afterwards ??
And yes the other quite was for full dephaser gear swapping and fitting hence the big price.
