Hi,

I'm hoping someone can help me. I've got a 15 plate 308 SW

The usual UREA warning message come up a couple of days ago and after a bad experience at my local dealer I decided to top up the system myself.

I've followed the manual but I'm still getting the warning message pop up when I start the car. Also the UREA light is still present on the dash.

Is there a reset procedure that's not mentioned in the manual?

Thanks in advance

Did you put enough in? I think I read somewhere that you need to put in at least 3.8 Litres or something like that amount when the light comes on, that's 2 bottles.

I think the dealer is trying to get some extra money out of you to be honest,
the message on mine cleared automatically after I'd topped up enough.

Last week 4 days after a service my Adblue light came on so went back to Peugeot dealer and I watched at least 12 ltr of Adblue go in but light remained on.
Eventually fixed by a software or is it firm wear update being input.

I was under the impression that replenishing of AdBlue was part of the service!

It is meant to be yes.

But depending on the number of miles you do it may run out before the service is due as I think the tank only holds enough for about 15,000 miles.

Certainly the case with me, I've had to top it up twice now between services.

Also, I have to be honest, the service I've received at the dealer hasn't always been what I expected....for example, after some repairs I found the light level switch had been re-fitted upside down and the first time I needed AdBlue topping up they charged me just under £50...hence why I've topped it up myself since...£11 and 30mins of my time.

I was charged £30 outside service, mine needed topping up a few weeks before the service..

Have always done mine myself is very easy to do. My dealer didn't do mine when it had its 2nd service and 4 days later I had the warning come on. Took the car back to them and complained as I thought it was part of the service (was on my service receipt) and they wanted to charge me another £9.99. Said bye and do it myself now. Also use a different dealer now who seem to know alot more than the other one and so far have been pretty good.

Its the same stuff in petrol stations. The one to avoid is for lorries/commercial vehicles.
If its Adblue its Adblue, but beware og the fluid rate, here is A quote;
The price of AdBlue® is not an indicator of quality in that all the branded diesel exhaust fluids are of good quality and conform to VW, DIN 70070 and ISO 22241-1 standards. For this reason it is strongly not advised to try and make AdBlue® yourself from high-grade urea. You should use AdBlue® approved by the manufacturer and packaged in the original containers. The AdBlue® brand is a registered trademark of the VDA (Association of the Automotive Industry).

To use the lorries Adblue in persons car you need an adapter, wv got one, This adapter have A build in magnet, That make the Adblue flow.

It also pays to shop around a bit - mine needed topping up a couple of thousand km before the service was due, and I saw some in a local service station for around €14 for a 1 liter bottle. I wasn't prepared to pay that, especially since I knew you needed to put in about 4 liters for it to be registered by the system. I found some at a different service station along my commute at €8 for a 10 liter bottle, and that I was more than willing to pay.

Seems to be a rip off item.
I bought 2 x 10 ltr. via Ebay and delivered it worked out at £0.80 per Ltr.
A word of warning I would not recommend handling larger than a 10 ltr. container to pour from as it is quite heavy so glad my 20 ltr. was in 2 containers.
I did read the ones you buy on forecourts have a shorter use by date on then necessary to cover the fact they may well be in sunlight, so mine are stored in a place they get no sun.

My warning came up on my dash a few weeks ago. Yesterday after a long trip away it seemed to drop from the originally stated range to something a lot less.

As I don't pay (company does) I dropped into Days Haverford West Peugeot garage. I was charged £9.98 to top up and I had my car washed too - whilst they gave me a 20p to get myself a coffee from their nice coffee machine.
