Great question.

Nothing yet, so I have blasted an update request to the Ombudsman. Fingers crossed eh

Hi Mark,

Could you tell me which EU directive of 2015 you're referring to? I want to write an e-mail to Frans Timmermans, my fellow Dutch countryman and EU politician, and ask him directly why I can't get a free repair manual from PSA.

Hi

I had a response from the motor industry ombudsman yesterday. Not the best news. They told me they settled on the side of Peugeot. Agreeing they had fulfilled their obligation by providing a web portal. I will challenge this.

Meanwhile you asked for the eu directive. I’ll see if I can load this

I hope this helps

Than I'm afraid we won't get a manual because PSA provides their DIAGBOX information when you buy "tokens" that give you access to their information system. My independent garage-workshop-car dealer does get their information when they buy those "tokens". It give them access for a certain amount of time.
Now we just need someone that has direct access to that PSA system and put it online ;-)

It sounds like you need to purchase the token and then download every scrap of info there is in the time allotted. If its in PDF format it can be rebuilt as an electronic book. I've done similar for other cars. Takes a while but can be worth it

After several months of waiting it looks like I may have a positive result. However, it still hasn't actually happened but it has left me hopeful for the moment.
I was informed on 22nd May 20 that if I contact my local dealer they will order me a copy of their own service & workshop manual and it will take between 5-10 days to arrive by post.
I will report back if this actually happens!!

good work that man,
better order about 1000. could be a lot of us wouldn't mind one.
I'm planning to get 10 years out of the cactus so would be useful.

Being serious! thanks for the post I'll be on the phone to my local dealer as soon as they are back of the Covid holiday.
Regards

Don't go in yet.

Let's get the first one with my emailed authority. If you try after that there will be a precedent they are pressed to follow. I'll also see if I can scan and share the manual electronically. Maybe via Dropbox
