It is a BIG pain. The price differs with the part of the country you live in. Call a couple of local garages. If you can find a doner car it will help.

people do it all the time you need a automatic flywheel a donor car would help you need some what to shift the tranny but they sale the parts at most auto stores the drive line will have to be changed shortened or lengthened which means you have to have it balanced donor car will have all of that keep you old parts you remove alot of people what to go to a manual and need the parts you will take off ebay the parts

You cant change the actual manual transmission into an Auto howeverr you can take out the manual and put in an automatic transmission instead. You can but it will take time and can carry a high price. The 'simplest' way is to get the equivalent engine/gearbox as a complete unit and do the transplant. If you can get a donor vehicle so much the better. There are always those little bits you need that are difficult to source.

Do you need to change automatic transmission on Peugeot 206?

I assume you mean the automatic transmission fluid? Peugeot automatic gearboxes are "sealed for life" and *they state* you need only to "top-up" the transmission fluid. However, ask yourself, what do Peugeot define as "life"? It's probably 10 years. In which case, I would much advise to get the transmission fluid changed, it's not too difficult and can be done yourself if you pick up a haynes manual. Unfortunately, as the gearbox is "sealed for life", you can't change the gearbox fluid filters.
