    Default 307 2.0 hdi

    Hi All,

    I have a 2006 2.0 HDI, currently sitting in the shed waiting for 4 new injectors and injector pump thanks to some bad diesel I am told (a great use of $4k in parts). Anyway, whilst I have some extra room in the engine bay, thought it would be a good time to renew the radiator coolant and thermostat (as it did get rather hot recently).

    Have been google'ing away, have also purchased Haynes manual. Everything is telling me that I need to loosen some bleed screws

    From Haynes:
    9 Slacken the bleed screw at the heater hose bulkhead connection, and the screw at the coolant outlet housing. On some engines, a third bleed screw is located at the top of the heater matrix outlet fitted to the base of the air cleaner housing (see illustrations).

    A thread on this website also shows some bleed screws:
    307 coolant capacity

    However, my car seems to be a slightly different model. I can't see any bleed screes at all. Please see attached pictures. Can anyone help me with some guidance as to how to replace coolant and the location of any bleed screws?

    appreciate any help!

    Interesting one, the Service Box diagrams don't show much either. I'd be making sure the O-rings of your small tube fittings are healthy, then popping a few of those tubes off to assist in purging air immediately from startup. As they bleed up, clip them back in.

    thanks, will have a go and post any updates. do you know if there is a drain plug on the engine block for the coolant?

    I must say as much as I like my pug, I have never been able to find a good Peugeot mechanic.

    To generalise on drain plugs, they seem to be mostly found on the alloy block engines and then infrequently disturbed. If you want to backflush, consider disconnecting the lower hose at the radiator.

    Interesting you should say that about technicians; I have a Peugeot from QLD that has been badly hacked by "European specialists". Broken bits, general incompetence and hamfisted repairs charged at high prices. Maybe shoot a message to James 504 - he might have an idea on who's trustworthy.

    Can only sympathise with you re good mechanics. I have a troubled 407 and seek someone that has lateral thinking to complement the scan tool clues. Have recently been told there is a pair of ex Peug master mechs out on their own in Toowoomba, a very handy auto elec/computer fellow in Sth Bris and the Nambour dealer has 2 good-uns in that garage.
    If you PM/email me I'll give you more details. Cheers

    thanks for comments above, will PM kelpiebat and james 504 for some names / contact details. As I would probably prefer a good mechanic put the new injectors in etc.

    thanks
