Instrument Panel

Note on Readout at bottom of Speedometer

when you first turn the ignition on; and before you start the car, you get a short display in the little window at the bottom of the speedometer that tells you (by six "0's that show for 5 seconds) the engine oil level followed by the number of "miles" (read on) to the next service.

If any of the 0's is replaced by a "-" then it means the oil level is a bit down - if several (or all of) the 0's are replaced by -'s then check the oil level by the dip stick and top up.

Peugeot say that UK vehicles should do 20,000 miles between services; in fact it should be 20,000km and they simply didn't change the software for the UK. This can be corrected via PP2000 to get a true miles readout. Yes, I know it says a tiny "miles" on your screen; they changed that but not the 20,000 - which SHOULD have started at 12,500 or thereabouts.

This is the reason for the ridiculous 40,000 miles expected of the spark plugs - and probably the cause of many failures to start or run properly. Changing plugs at 25,000 miles would have been far more realistic!

Removing - Refitting : Instrument panel

a thin spatula will be very useful to unclip the panel from the dashboard

Raise the column to the maximum (outlet at the bottom) for better access to the instrument panel.
(1)=Instrument panel binnacle. (2)=Instrument panel

Using tool [1] : Unclip at (A) : The binnacle (Front structure)
Unclip at (B) : The binnacle (Rear structure)
Detach and remove : The binnacle (1).

Remove : The securing bolt (3) (Instrument panel (2)).
Unclip : The mountings (4).
Detach : The guides (5).
Detach the instrument panel (2).

Unclip the connector (6) (At the rear of the instrument panel (2)).
Remove : The instrument panel (2) .

Unless the same panel is reinstalled, the replacement instrument panel must be initialised using the diagnostic equipment.
