Due to the unsuitable design of the dynamic tensioner of the accessory belt, slip-resistance efforts will increase over time which may lead to cracks in the area of the tensioner strap. The strap could consequently break and the belt fall, resulting in a loss of power steering, the battery discharging and the engine overheating.
The vehicles affected were manufactured between 20. 3. 2008 – 15. 11. 2011.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Peugeot dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
