The power steering on my wife's 61 plate Peugeot 207 1.6Hdi sportium has stopped working and the steering is very heavy.

I am trying to locate maxi fuse MF10 to check if it has blown but can only find the other maxi fuses under the main fuse box (MF1 - MF8).

Can anyone please tell me where the MF10 is located.

I have also checked fuse F7 (10 amp) and that is ok.

Reading other posts on here, I suspect that it may be the main steering pump/rack that has gone faulty.......not what you would expect after only 33,000 miles and extremely dangerous :mad:

Thanks in advance

I took a guess at an RPO for your car, and looked up the system wiring diagram for Power Steering. No MF10 shown.

Also checked Documentation, based on some guesses about the car's equipment. No extra fusebox shown, so no MF10.

If you care to let me have your VIS (last 8 digits of the VIN) I can eliminate the guesswork. PM me if you wish.

Hi Ian - thanks for your reply and help. The last 8 digits of the VIN number are BE071153.

According to the owners manual the fuse should be an 80amp maxi fuse for the electric power steering and is located in box 2, position MF 10.
To be honest I think it will be the actual steering motor that has failed - there seems to be a few other instances of this highlighted on here.

I have contacted Peugeot UK customer services and will take it to the Peugeot Garage tomorrow......this car has been a nightmare from day one :mad:

Once again thanks for your reply - most appreciated :thumb:

I had a peek on Google, and it seems that there are some Maxi Fuses in front of the BSI, which I suspect is where they may be found.....

I may have got this information wrong in the translation though....

Thanks guys - I will see what the garage says tomorrow :confused:

There should be an error code available when it's plugged in to the diagnostics machine as there is also a warning light illuminated on the dash.

Hopefully all will be revealed :rolleyes:

My local Peugeot Garage looked at it today and confirmed it was the steering motor that had failed. Apparently they had two other 207s in last week with the same fault - thankfully Peugeot are covering the cost of the repairs as it is a recognised problem.

Thanks for your previous replies and help - all should be good now - Happy days :)

Me too!

A quick note here to say 'thanks' for all the advice - my 207SW developed the same fault, and I was getting ready for a massive bill...a quick call to my local dealer, a visit, and sorted!

More details, though - initially they said that they were not aware of any issues with steering motors, and wouldn't there have been a recall if it was a 'known issue'? I quoted some of the comments here to them - they went away and phoned Peugeot, and phoned back to say that they needed to stick it on the diagnostic machine (£89!), but if it threw up one of a number of known codes then all would be repaired free. They also said that it was extremely rare for these codes NOT to appear.

In I went, then, hopeful, but no more. An hour later - yes, it's one of those codes, yes Peugeot will cover all costs (inc. the £89 diagnostic fee). A day later the car is fixed.

So - thanks to all here for nudging me to make the call in the first place...and, since we're all (quite rightly) happy to moan about terrible service from garages, a loud 'thank you' to Stoneacre for their amazing service, and their keenness for Peugeot to cover it all. And, I suppose, to Peugeot too, for not quibbling or trying to get out of it.

Happy days!
