Hello, we have 110 hp Peugeot 307 HDI 2003 For some time there is a problem with the startimg. Trying to start the engine and a click sound and everything turns off like the battery is flat. We have to remove the two terminals of the battery to lock and unlock the car and then start again and will go. Does anyone have any ideas where the problem is and how it can be resolved? Is it the starter motor? Thanks in advance!

Hi Just finished a clutch change on our 04 2.0 L 90 diesel. During that job the earth cable has to be un bolted from the top of the gearbox. When reassembling it was done up nice and tight and the first start was fine. Then next time dash lights all on but nothing from the starter so head scratching time. Eventually turned out to be a poor connection of the earth at the gearbox, presumably 10 yrs of corrosion had left a film of oxide. Cleaned it up and away; so worth checking that before shelling out for a new starter.

As for actually doing any of this work Peugeot like all manufacturers these days design for cheapest on the assembly line and sod the 3rd owners maintenance issues. Removing the starter entails taking the air cleaner box out to get access to the fixing bolts (Allen heads by the way). The captive washer on the bottom bolt fouls the clutch slave so ideally that needs taking off. Then there is the problem of getting to the cable terminals on the starter. Totally obscured by endless pipes and cable trunking. I gave up when doing the clutch and just left it tucked up out of the way.

Also did the timing belt/water pump while at it and that's another nightmare for access. Getting the belt covers off is next to impossible with the engine in the car due to inadequate clearances where the engine is tipped backwards. Then to re-time it correctly the starter has to come of to get at the flywheel timing pin hole. You just can't rely on not disturbing the crank as they have made the keyway in the bottom toothed pulley far wider than the key. With considerable difficulty I again shoved the starter to one side and made up a looonnng L shaped bar and managed to get it into the almost invisible timing hole.

A further grump is the Haynes manual - it jumps back and forth between the various engine options and the photos are more hinderance than help.

Spleen vented. So just to suggest that a careful check that all's well with the earth strap would be worthwhile.
