It might fit or they might do one for my V50 as well - I can't use it unless I have the car garaged though (it's sleeping outside).
Volvo wants a ridiculous amount of money for a block heater.
DEFA 412512. It costs about 100Ä, I got it for 90Ä through a mechanic with a discount (my brother-in-law). But you should have an extra 50-100Ä ready for the cables/connectors from DEFA

Which Peugeot models have it ?
I'm willing to bet that you do, since it seems to be paired with the DPF. My 307 left the factory for southern France in May 2005, one of the last pre-lift units (so I have a few post-lift details, eg the electrical system is CAN-CAN instead of VAN-CAN, whatever that means). I don't think I've seen a 2007 or later 1.6 HDi without the EGR cooler, but I have seen earlier models with it (not only Peugeots, but also CitroŽns and Fords). I'm not sure whether there were cars with a DPF but without an EGR cooler. It looks like this:

Here's the back of an engine with an EGR cooler:

And one without (like mine):

(The arrow shows where I think the heater goes.)
You will have to look at the back of your engine. Almost everything is in the back, and getting there is a Royal PITA, so a mirror will help after you've taken pretty much all the ducts and filters off. The EGR cooler I ordered cost 50Ä used from a Peugeot 307, but the exact same cooler was available for 60Ä (CitroŽn C3 1.6 HDi) or 70Ä (Peugeot 308 1.6 HDi). Now that's marketing!
