Question about 2005 Peugeot 405

1 Answer

Hi, peugeot 206 clutch/engine problem..

Had car trouble the other day. while driving there came noise (rattling then clunking)from the engine then when i was changing gear the clutch gave out and lost pressure with the clunking noise again but louder at this point..had to stop and dont want to start the car again as when I do the noise is still there. Not looking for a solution but an opinion on what the cause may be would be much appreciated. The car is a Peugeot 206 1.1 petrol 2003.

Thanks in advance

It seems like the clutch pressure plate has given in. Best would be to replace the clutch pro-kit.( Clutch pressure plate, clutch plate and release bearing)

I have a peugeot 206 allure I have clunking noise when changing from 1st to 2nd and from 2nd to 3rd but not when changing to forth or coming down the gear I have had a new gear box clutch and thrust

It could be a loose/failed engine or transmission mount. Look at the tranny rear mount and check the bolts and condition. Also check the bell housing bolts AND the bolts connecting the engine flywheel to the clutch pressure plate.

A rattling noise has suddenly appeared

Hi Graham,
I think you should look at the heat shields often attached to the exhaust, sometimes when at idle they can vibrate and rattle and make a hell of a racket. Have your mechanic take a look at these it shouldn't cost very much if that is the problem

Hi I just replaced the starter motor on my peugeot 206 and it is making strange noises when the engine is turning over and not starting the car. I removed the old one first so that it could be matched

Did you compare the length of the starter drive shaft of the new and old? Sounds like the armature is to long and not disconnecting when released...older models sometimes require shims to correctly set the length...

When I am accelerating or changing gear my Peugeot 206 is making a rattling noise Any ideas what it could be

It may be one of the heat shields on the exhaust system is loose, and is causing this intermittent rattling. With the engine cold and when the exhaust system has cooled, check to see if the shields or other components are loose.

Peugeot 206 NEW clutch pressure and clutch plates were replaced including the bearing. Clutch is making a rattling noise but not when pedal is down. Having difficulty getting into 1st and 2nd gears....

its likley to be the clutch center plate cush springs are loos and the center plate is warped so wnen you try to get into gear the clutch is draging the gear box around,,,bipping the clutch stops the clutch spinning so no noise! all you can do is strip the lot down again and fine the fault and fix it

Our peugeot 206 2001 model diesel broke down the other day after a clunking, rotating noise started. I've only had it 6 weeks, garage says it needs new engine. What could it be? And no, we didn't put...

I still don't know what caused the problem, but there is no longer the need to find out as the dealer who sold me the car has accepted responsibility and is replacing the engine. Thank you.
