Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

The holes are plated thru in the circuit board. There are components on the bottom surface and above the waffle plate that are inaccessible without removing the plate, hopefully nothing fails there or within the plate.

The snubber caps are connected in parallel across the output of the diode rectifier bridge, POA and NOA, seen in the schematic shown here:

i used the diode function of the DMM to check all the diodes on the plate and found a short in the bottom left H-bridge.

Sounds like my idea would work then. It should be possible to unsolder and extract the caps via the top then, carefully clean the hole out, and solder the caps via the top with the leg of the new caps partially inserted into the hole. You'd want them raised up off the board a little higher than usual to give a little bit of naked leg to get a fine soldering tip onto and also for doing the continuity check afterwards.
The snubber caps are connected in parallel across the output of the diode rectifier bridge, POA and NOA, seen in the schematic shown here:

If they're in parallel that makes it easy to check the top-of-the-board soldering technique succeeded as you can just check continuity between the legs of the two capacitors...

Let's hope mrbleepy is lucky and it's only the caps and fuse...!

I think a collective thanks is in order for Kiev's presumed part in making this happen! :ugeek:

So far, so good - it seems to be charging fine after replacing the 2 capacitors and the fuse.

No problem - and thanks to you and everyone else who has contributed information and experience in the "DC to DC..." thread :D
