Boost issue

Hi there,
I had my 308 at the Peugeot dealer for diagnostic. It is 1.6 turbo petrol 2008. The fault codes are p003 and p0299. They recon it is either fault with the wastegate or the turbo it self. They didn’t even open the hood. I did not noticed any strange noises out of the turbine, but noticed small decline in power. I have looked under the hood and around the turbo and found the hose (circled red in pic) to be disconnected. I have reattached It and cleared the codes. Road tested and I noticed slight increase in power and the fault didn’t come back.
My question is could that be the issue and what is called that part where the hose is plugged in.
Cheers, guys

I know nothing about these cars but I reckon you have found the problem and fixed the problem.

If I was you I would replace that piece of hose with a new one because it will probably come off again.

Won't comment on the lack of service you got from the Peugeot dealer, hope they never charged you.

I hope I have fixed it.
I wish they didn’t charge me, their min charge is one hour which is $125, bastards.

Wow that seems a bit rich. We got a coolant flush and change for $88 at the dealer inclusive of the coolant and labour, and that took about an hour. $125 for not much.. hmm, would think twice about going there again.

That looks like it - open circuit on the turbo bypass.
So do you think that the hose that was off from what it looks like some sort of vacuum unit could be the issue? And do you know the name of that part that the hose came off?
I have a login for Peugeot service box, but recently they have change to paid subscription even when I search for parts numbers.

The hose to the right of the circle is what you are questioning, is the fault. The hose is from the cam cover, which recirculates ERG gasses. All fixed. They should have seen that and charged you nothing. Don't take it there again.
 
The hose goes to the waste gate diaphragm that controls waste gate control rod. That hose commonly comes off when u r in there either replacing electric water pump or doing the oil filter housing oil seals.
waste gate failure is also common but can be diagnosed by removing o2 sensor from turbo exhaust section and a camera put inside to see condition of flapper. The flapper and turbine housing is now available seperate from turbo and doesn’t need a complete turbo replacement when wastegate fails.
as the above member said. Don’t to back to those fools.

Yeah the hose was split at the fitting and loose, no way going back to them

Good catch on the hose.

This is the reason dealers lose business. They could easily have built some good will out of that incident but instead they've taught you that they just couldn't care less. So they got $125 out of you but now they've missed out on potentially thousands of dollars over the next few years in repeat business. I just don't get the poor attitude to customer service.

I'm equally as frustrated by the removal by PSA of the free services on Peugeot Service Box. If anyone has a solution to this problem I'd be keen to hear it.

French Car Forum (UK) has a subscription to Service Box, and one or two members look up part nos. for people. They ask for a £10 donation, specifically for this service (the forum itself is still free).

Obviously you'd need to use their service more than once to get your money's worth, but that shouldn't be too hard!

Thanks for the tip. I guess that's an option. I've taken to calling the spares section of stealers and taking up their time, but even by calling different stealers to share the load I'm sure they'll get sick of the 'tyre kickers' pretty quickly.

AUD$18 is a big hit when you're looking at infrequent usage.
