Hi Maarten I hope you are well. I’m sorry to hear your having issues with your Peugeot and I totally understand how frustrating this is. The code is P11A8 indicates that the Camshaft position (CMP) actuator, exhaust camshaft has a malfunction.
On your engine this is commonly caused by Variable valve timing (VVT) solenoid piston sticking due to metal swarf contamination.
