I have a 2006(facelift) 307 1.6hdi sport, and if I park upto a wall turn my headlights on and adjust them (say 0 upto 3) I see them move but if I move it back the other way no movement? After a while if I do it again I see it move up again??

Are these headlights self leveling by any chance, or is there a fault?

better late than never reply.

Hi,

Sound like you have the same issue that I have had on my car twice now.
The peugeot dealerships dont seem to understand how the car is wired in this issue and have constanly tried to flog off expensive items my way to fix it.
Turns out its relatively a simple fix.
If you have your headlights turned on and pull out the ash tray, there should be a red light glowing, if it isnt, that is the problem, the globe is blown.
This globe sets the reference voltage for the potentiometer in the headlight adjuster. If the globe is blown, the headlights will raise but wont lower and there wont be any lights glowing inside the headlight adjusted.
To fix, Pull out the ash tray, then starting at the rear, lift the gearlever gaiter up and then pull back, then remove the tray under the stereo head unit (or remove cd Stacker if you have one), this should just pull out towards you.
Then the lower half of the silver surround that goes all the way to the gearleaver needs to be removed. You need to start at the top levering it out on both sides and then it should just pull out with no hastle.
Then you should see a couple of torx head screws that you pull out and the surround for the ash tray will pull out and you will have access to your problem - the blown globe.

Hope you still have the car and havnt spent money paying peugeot to fix this.
Mine luckily happend while still under warantee.

Are you sure thats the fix and wasnt just a coincidence?

I have no light in my ashtray but my levellers are working fine

I also cant see how it'd make the light on the headlight adjuster die, again mine is working as expected!

trust me, not a coincidence, its not the headlight adjuster that makes the globe die, its the globe blowing (as they tend to do) that causes the headlight adjusters to drive up and not down. I have had the fault twice and had peugeot look at it and only when they had tried all other avenues did they change the bulb. I happened to have my dash apart for a different fault and proved the theory beyond all doubt. When there is no bulb they dont work. Mine is a 307 HDI my06., maybe some models have a different wiring loom.

nah not a part time fairy. Enlisted fairy. worked on the orions as an avionics technician. I specialised in electrical and armament, did a bit of comms and radar though. All good fun, miss the tech a bit, but the pug is a beast of its own with some pretty interesting circuitry when you get into how it all ties in together.

it was the RADAR equipment that did my head in, when i was there...working on a massive solid state phase array was a pain :lol: especially in the commcen, having to pass people on the phone and speak to the yanks about circuits :lol:

i know what you mean about your pug, my ford is the same...but im getting my head around it all :lol:
