    Just picked my 307 sw up from the dealership for its 3rd replacement com
    2000 module in 4 and a half months and 5000 miles... anyone else have
    multiple problems with this module??????

    If you mean the indicator mechanism broke, then yes, I think we had 3 in the
    end. Car is a 2001/51 plate. The last one has lasted a good 6 months now.

    I've had mine for a month now (2000 km) no problems at all. Anything I
    should test or look further into ?
    (Mine is a 2.0 gasoline)

    I am from DK.

    What's Bad
    Mini MPV attributes do not extend to a flat floor and no centre console as
    in the much better packaged Honda Civic. Doesn't shift the goalposts set by
    the Ford Focus. Wipers and footwell designed for left hand drive. Problems
    developing include total power failures, total electrical failures, trip
    computer failures, service indicator failures, poor starting, brake pedals
    falling off, steering column stalk malfinctions, splits in seat covers,
    rattles, screen leaks, cracked screens, complaints of poor ride quality even
    on 1.6 and 1.4HDI versions. ECU problem with HDIs causes flat spots and
    hesitation. A permanent cure seems to be slow in coming through. Shocking
    4th from Bottom of 100 models for reliability in Auto Express 2002 survey.
    One Backroomer's list of problems:- "electronic service indicator counting
    down very very quickly, carpet coming adfift of the trim, exterior door
    rubbing strips coming adrift of the door, a breakdown whilst driving,
    steering lock/ignition key recall problem, glovebox release mechanism
    broken, horn intermittently not working, paint chipping on bonnet despite
    mainly slow speed driving, hatchback would not close until shut several
    times, rear seat velour stitching not finished, remote central locking
    intermittently not working, electronic oil level indicator reading empty
    despite being virtually full, etc." Fault in indicator stalks very common on
    307s from May 2001. Many owners force and break them. Free fix available in
    France from December 2002, in UK from January 2003. On HDIs, rubber
    cushioned timing belt pulley needs replacing at same time as timing belt
    (60k - 70k miles) otherwise can separate. Odometer over-reading problem
    cured by dealer sofwear upload via OBD2 port. Clutch judder can develop on
    2001/2002 diesels, caused by wear in internal damper of dual mass flywheel.
    Needs replacing with modified unit to solve the problem. Petrol models avera
    ge for breakdowns and faults but poor for problems; diesels average for
    breakdowns bur poor for problems and faults in 2003 Which survey. 3rd from
    bottom out of 137 models in 2003 Top Gear survey. 307 3rd bottom model in
    2004 JD Power Customer Satisfaction Survey.

    Late 2001: TSB issued to check all common-rail to injector unions on HDIs
    for leaks. 30-4-2002: 28,441 307s recalled because ignition lock could get
    stiff or seize and this could lead to starter motor burn out. Complete
    steering lock assembly of affected cars to be replaced. 23-8-2002: 643 307s
    VIN 82136270 to 82155798 recalled because front shock absorber lower yoke
    may not be to correct spec and may fracture. Affected cars to be checked for
    cracks and new parts fitted where necessary. 8-11-2002: 89 307s recalled
    because filled with wrong brake fluid. Brake and clutch fluid to be
    replaced. 5-12-2002: 289 307s recalled because front left hand anti-roll bar
    linkage may contact and chafe on the brake pipe when turning wheels to left
    full lock. Inspect, reposition and if necessary replace left front brake
    pipe. 8-1-2003: On automatics the transmission control wiring loom may
    become pinched making it possible to start the engine while the car is in
    gear. Check for pinched cable and repair and reposition where necessary.
    September 2003: Repeat of 2002 ignition switch recall to try to catch cars
    which escaped because when the switch jams, the starter motor remains
    engaged and this can lead to a fire. 2-9-2003: on 554 307s may be cuts in
    sidewall or treads of one or both right hand tyres. Check and replace tyres
    as necessary. February 2004: 307s not voluntarily taken to dealers for
    odometer softwear upload will be recalled for it.

    Mine is 2.0 petrol as well, issues started pretty much straight away, first
    the horn was intermittent, then didn't work, then the ESP stopped
    functioning... 3 modules later these problems have been resolved, but i am
    sure more will arise.

    That said, i am still pleased with the car overall... it is quicker than my
    last motor (a 306 d estate) and seems to fit far far more camping stuff in
    the boot... handles OK as well for the type of car it is...
