First i would try adjusting the clutch cable because commonly people with think that they're clutch is going out when really just the cable has gotten stretched....try adjusting that first and if that works then you should be fine for another couple thousand miles but if you want to not have to worry bout it for awhile i would just replace teh clutch assembly....usually ranges from $200 to $450 depending on the clutch set and the mechanic that does the work for you. Let me know what happens. :)

This is how to adjust the clutch correctly

NOTE: From mid-94 an automatically adjusted cable was progressively introduced. this has no nut type adjusters at the clutch end

SPECIFICATIONS: 1988 TO 1996
Models up to 1992 .... 145mm
Models from 1993 on .. 162mm +/- 12.0mm

The clutch adjustment is checked by measuring the clutch pedal travel.
1. If a new cable has been fitted, settle it in position by depressing the clutch pedal at least 20 times.
2. Ensure that there are no obstructions beneath the clutch pedal.
Depress the clutch pedal fully to the floor, and measure the distance from the center of the clutch pedal pad to the floor.
Now release the pedal and again measure the distance from the pedal to the floor.
3. Subtract the first measurement from the second to obtain the clutch pedal travel.
If this is not within the range given in the specifications, adjust the cable as follows.
4. The clutch cable is adjusted by means of the adjuster nut on the transmission end of the inner cable.
On some models, access to the locknut is limited and, if required, the air cleaner duct or housing component can be removed or disconnected to improve access.
5. Working in the engine compartment, slacken the locknut on the end of the clutch cable.
Adjust the position of the adjuster nut, then re-measure the clutch pedal travel.
Repeat this procedure until the clutch pedal travel is as specified.
6. Once the adjuster nut is correctly positioned, and the pedal travel is correctly set, securely tighten the cable locknut.
Where necessary, refit any disturbed air cleaner duct/housing components.

the alarm control unit is fitted under the drivers seat can be accessed from the rear foot well by putting seat fully forward .unscrew the two nuts holding the cover the relays are inside the unit.

this unit interfaces will tell the fuel stop solenoid to release (by applying 12 volts)

the fuel stop solinoid is on the main diesel pump under the bonnet - the exac location on the pump will depend on the make - but it should be cylindrical and have one wire connected to it - (i dont think peugeot were using multi wired coded soleniods in 93)

obivously if your car has the keypad immobilser you will know where this is - if it is the remote alarm immobilser the reciever is in the over head consol near the interior front light

206 w reg fitted new clutch but now have no biting point so car will not pull away help


Hello, Who installed the clutch"? Were there a new pressure plate installed? Were there a new throw out bearing installed. Does this 1991 Peugeot 405 have hydraulic or mechanical clutch linkage?
There a couple of reason why the Peugeot wont move and engine is running and the transmission is in gear.

1.. Pressure plate is installed backwards.--Remove transmission and reinstall pressure plate in the correct orientation to the clutch. There is two ways to install it, but one way correctly.

2. Adjustment for the clutch linkage from the pedal in the driver compartment is adjusted to tight and not releasing the clutch to where the clutch pressure is on the pressure plate.



I hope this helps. GB....stewbison

No acceleration, minimal movement of accelerator pedal.


hi, test your turbo pipes,
these are common to split, its the big fat pipe o/s is the 1 that splits, feel around it im sure it has a large split. to test the turbo squeeze that large pipe and get some 1 to rev, it has to inflate very hard and open your hand, if not listen for hissing if not check the turbo and air filter as might be sucked up, again its common
