Sorry can't give you the exact location - just wanted to mention the resistor gets hot in use and in order to keep it cool enough to prevent melted plastic and possibly fire it is sited in the heater air intake, often before the fan.
Peugeot have possibly been the only manufacturer to use a solid state motor speed control instead of the resistor so don't be surprised if the resistor when you find it, is a large power transistor...

Several of the Peugeot cars I have dealt with have the fan motor and speed control resistor/unit behind the dashboard above the passenger footwell and is easily accessible after removing some air trunking. I can't comment about whether that is where it is found in your vehicle.
Final thought; over many years I have found the fan motor to invariably be the heater trouble with Peugeots and have never needed to replace the speed control resistor or whatever. Due to the dust and dirt they gather the motor bearings become tight and semi-seized so the motor turns slowly at low speed settings or not at all...

Hope this helps.

Appears that the central door locking motor in the drivers door has either failed or become disconnected!

Remove the drivers door card and investigate!

Peugeot 308 SW (2008) LH & RH brake lights not working

Was told by a colleague at work following me in that my brake lights were not working. Both side brake lights didn't work but the high level brake light strip at top of rear hatch did. I checked the bulbs but made the mistake in thinking the top most bulbs were the rear lights then next ones down were the rear & brake - as both locations are same dual element bulbs. Based on some forums I thought it might be the brake switch. My mistake...hence this post. The brake & rear light bulbs are the top most bulbs in the clusters, the next bulbs down are the additional rear light only (as the brake element is unused as there is no contact strip in the cluster).

If the LH & RH brake lights don't work but the high level lights do - then it will be the cruel coincidence that both bulbs gone, and unlikely to be the brake switch (which is a dual switch with press to break press to break contacts).

The clue is if all the brake lights don't work, as in the LH & RH and the top strip high level lights then it is most likely the brake switch (which is located in the passenger side below the glove box behind a piece of trim that can be removed by taking out 3 studs. The switch has a green end and the rod of the switch is pushed by a rotating shaft connected to the brake pedal {plenty of info on youtube about this}. The brake switch is available from euro carparts at about Ā£10.

Oh - the LH & RH light clusters locate in to the car's bodywork with 2 pins, and are held in with T30 (torx 30) bolts.

The Haynes repair manual contains a couple of typical diagrams - I usually make a diagram before I start such a job after learning the hard way...

There is usually only a couple of choices of belt routing and sometimes three - one leaves the belt loose and one is impossible. The right way is also impossible unless the tensioner is fully retracted.
Late models, incidentally, use a stretchy belt and has no belt tensioner. Manufacturer recommends cutting off the belt when work is needed and a new belt is wound onto the pulleys using the special tool provided with the new belt.

Unlike other cars, the lever to pop the hood open is on the passenger's side. Open the passenger-side door, locate the gear on the sidewall and pull it up - you will hear the hood release. Then, find the latch on the front by moving your fingers, press on it, and open the hood.

If you have caught it in time, Particulate filter is clogged, motorway driving, (keep revs up above 3000RPM) for 20 minutes should clear the filter otherwise your dealership can program the ECU to rev the engine at 3000RPM for half an hour for an astronomical fee.
