I phoned Peugeot, and gave them the VIN of my prospective purchase. The part number of the camshaft cover for the 7mm chain system was found in the parts list for the car, and the one for the 8mm wasn't - so I didn't even need to pop the bonnet.

It's going to Peugeot to have an oil leak from the top of the engine seen to before I buy it anyway, so the Peugeot people can hopefully take a look at the chain then. If there's anything that needs doing it's probably easier to get sorted while it's with the original owner, even though the guarantee has just expired.

Hi Is there any chance to get a TSB (B1AW0145Q0) from you? I have a same problem with my Peugeot Partner 1.5blue HDi.
I have a diagnostic appointment for Friday 03-11.
The engine is currently at 32k and starting to hear strange noises from the timing area. I hope they don't tamper with it as it's a known problem and PSA have known about it for a long time.

TSBs are specific to the vehicle, so I can't help you with that as they are chargeable. You'll have to advise them as to the knocking near the timing area - tell them you believe there is a Technical Service Bulletin for this on the 1.5 Blue HDi engines. They will be able to check from your VIN. But make sure the Service Manager is aware of the issue. Make sure they record it down on the booking-in paperwork under other work or customer concerns, as you will want to make sure this is written down for evidence of the concern and any warranty issue later. I think they are covering the engines for an extended period, but won't do anything about it until one of the symptoms starts.
