The usual problem:
Over the last few years a common fault showing up on various Peugeot and Citroen models is of the indicators not working properly.
Common symptoms include:
* A tendency to start indicating left, on cancelling the right indicator.
* Loose or floppy feel to the indicator stalk
* Indicators don't cancel, or operate unintentionally.
If your main beam flashes when indicating, or your airbag light is on, please contact us first as these faults are not included in our normal service.
Inside the indicator assembly (known as Com 2000) on the steering
column (if it's been made by DAV, not Delphi), there is a
small nylon plunger on a spring, which clicks in to hold the
indicator stalk in one of the three positions: left, centre, and
With use, this nylon plunger becomes worn and the result is a somewhat unpredictable indicator stalk.
A worn plunger
You can replace the whole indicator assembly costing several hundred pounds new, or maybe you can obtain a used one - but that would have to be exactly the same model - and quite probably will have a worn plunger also.
We can supply you with a new plunger for your DIY fix.
Instructions of how to remove the indicators assembly from the steering column, and how to fit the new plunger are shown below.

The plunger and spring....
Whilst you have it stripped down, thoroughly clean the switch contacts on the arm and the pcb.
If the steering column is moved following removal of the
indicator housing, or the boss of the housing is allowed to turn to
a different position, there is a risk that the internal ribbon will
snap on full lock after reassembly.
If you suspect either has moved significantly, set both your steering, and your indicator assembly to half-way before reassembly.
