Hello,
My wife has a Peugeot 107 (55 reg)automatic. She was waitning at a queue when the car started to sound strangely and felt like "wanting to go" although the barke was on. Then there was a smell from the clutch. She moved forward and stopped a couple of times and when she finally accelerated, the problem was gone. I have tested the car after the incient and it looks fine. I assume that the gearbox did not switch to neutral when the car was stopped and the brake was on. CAn anyone help me with an advise or similar experience. I had booked the car for a diagnosys but would prefer to sort the problem by myself if possible.
Thanks

I assume she did actually disengage "E" ? I only ask as I used to sit at lights with my foot on the  brake until a mechanic pointed out to me the car was always waiting to go so I was putting extra wear and tear on the gearbox and should put it into neutral and apply the handbrake every time.

Having said that, it doesn't seem to take much to confuse the s/a gearbox (see s/a gearbox crunch) and I wonder if it's mostly to do with it only being a 1l car.
It's also not a true automatic - the car continues to roll forwards or back whilst in Neutral so handbrake starts are now the norm, no Park mode which led to my car rolling down my driveway when I switched off my ignition even though the handbrake was on - the garage said it was within tolerance but funnily enough they did tweak it a little and it's never happened since.
I had a s/a 2l Mondeo and never had any issues like this and was never forced into using the manual option unlike in the 107.

Hello again, i was just going to update the post. I had a second test drive on the 107 and discovered what the problem was. The accelerator pedal was sometimes not returning fully when you take your foot off. Although it appears to be an electronic pedal, there was some friction which caused it no to return fully up sometimes. The effect was as though you were applying  brake and gas at the same time. I sprayed some WD40 where the pedal axel and the problem was gone. Cancelled the booking at the garrage and saved some money! I have to point that the car is low milleage and there was no dirt arround the peddal, so the problem had to do with engeneering.

On the Newalk's post, my comment is that the 107 auto gearbox seams to switch to newtral when you stop the car and have your foot on the brake (without switching to "N" manually). If you carefully listen to the noise and feel, about a second after you stop, the gearbox seams to switch to neutral and I believe the clutch is not engaged before you take your foot off the brake again. So I assume you are not putting more wear and tear to the gearbox if you don't switch to "N". I drive a Subaru automatic and the gearbox in this car has different feel. It does not seam to disangage when you stop, and when you take your foot off the brake, the car pulls immediately (not like the 107 which needs a fraction of a second before the gearbox is engaged after you take your foot off the brake). I assume these are different types of automatic gearbox management and may have to do with the size of the car and the engine.

Sorry, I should have clarified that the gearbox wear and tear I mentioned was on a standard auto (vauxhall astra) and not the 107 I now have.
I agree there is a slight dip when you stop which certainly suggests it is in neutral - perhaps an anomaly of the tip-tronic?
Glad you sorted your problem out!
