    Default 306 - Mould under headlight problem

    Hi there froggers!
    I have been looking at this for ages and it's finally got to me! The strip mould under the headlight, on each side it looks like the outer clip is broken on each on, cause them to poke out...
    Does anyone know where I can get these two clips from? Or how I can fix these moulds from poking out?

    Quite often these are called eyebrows. Wrong side of the eye, but who cares!

    They are available at various peugeot wreckers, as well as the plastic clips

    Default cable ties

    Yes, it drove me crazy too, pushing it back in place every time I walked past.

    When I had to replace a driving light I discovered that if you take the front bumper off... not that hard,
    you can use a small cable tie on each side instead of the breakable hard to get clips. Sweet (and permanent ) relief from this aesthetic annoyance.

    Good luck...

    Default Grill fixing clips 306

    These grill fixing clips should be readily available from any authorised Peugeot dealers parts department for around $5 ea.

    The 306 N5's (7/97 on) are different to N3.

    The N5 type are also available from "Paragonpug1" in the UK for $2.60ea. plus $2.90 post with extra ones sent for almost nothing extra. Buy several at a time !

    The trick to fitting is to attach the clip to the "eyebrow" first then snap onto the front of guard .

    Default 306 headlight mould fix.

    Hi Brad

    Assuming yours is an N5 mod. lift the bonnet and remove air intake duct screw on RHside (torx T-30 from memory)
    Remove the 4 inner plugs from along top of grill locating plugs (2 small screw drivers) and remove larger plugs carefully, then the screw under or beside the centre badge
    Very gently prise (flex) out the grill complete with eyebrow on the affected side.
    If the eyebrow is securely fixed (usually are due to dirt build up) spray along under headlight with WD or soapy water and wriggle about for a bit. (they are fixed to base of headlamp by 3 expanding clips which you don't want to break) If you have problems releasing these try squeezing these tangs from under bumper if possible with needlenose pliers or a long small diam. screw driver.
    Its a good idea to clean the parts once dismantled
    Make sure eyebrow securely fixed to grill, attach new clip to eyebrow and gently feed the tangs back into headlight, then snap the end back into front of guard.

    Voila!

    Well bought the clips online only to snap one while putting them on. $15 down the drain, instead used 2 cable ties and fixed in 30 seconds. 406 bliss thanks for the tip.
