  1. This might help but it is possible the screen picture you have seen is only on dearer models such as the exclusive. On the picture you have shown, note the trip mileage is 6214 miles. On Citroens the trip computer only goes this high and needs resetting - it is a conversion from 9999 km and to go higher would need an extra digit adding. Any trip values once it reaches this distance are unlikely to be accurate.

  2. We had 2 Citroen C3s with petrol engines and they did not have fuel filters. Possibly Citroen only put them on diesel cars. However, if you put your car reg into such as the eurocarparts site, if it has a fuel filter they will list one. There is also your Citroen dealer parts dept as a last resort. If changing the spark plugs and oil, make sure you use the right ones as recommended By Citroen. The puretech engines seem to be prone to spark plug problems.

  3. From your screen shot it looks as if your car is a 1.4 petrol. How many miles has it done ? If it is the vti engine I would suspect the timing chain is worn and needs replacing. We had a 2010 C3 with the 1.4 vti engine and that needed doing at 50k miles and if you do a search you will find it is common for the timing chain to need doing at a low mileage. Your fault codes in a search all suggest a cam timing problem, possibly a cam shaft sensor but when we had one fail the fault code was a clear cam shaft sensor one and a check of the resistance across its pins were different on the good a

  4. If you look in the car handbook it should say how to replace the battery in the fob. This should include an initialisation procedure. I suspect you might need to do this on both fobs at the same time or open the car with one fob and initialise the other and see if they both work together without the rigmarole.

  6. I have no idea about the modulation. If it is just the case that needs replacing and the internal electrics are still working then I would only buy a case and put the existing electrics and key blade into the replacement case - I have done this a few times on Citroen cars. If the remote just needs a new battery then the car handbook says how to replace it. Something to be aware of, a replacement will likely not work with the car immobiliser, the immobiliser chip will need to be removed from the old remote and put in the new one but if it is built into the circuit board I do not know how y

  7. If it is a dash board mount then it is likely to be an after market one such as a Tom Tom or Garmin. You could remove the mount and take it to somewhere like Halfords and see if it can be identified to see which sat nav fits. The other option is to just buy one that you like best at a price you are happy to pay. We have used a couple of Garmins on cars without a built in sat nav and they worked well enough with a mount that clipped them to the central air vents. The power lead was simply plugged into the nearby 12 volt socket. When not being used they were removed from the car.

  8. The forum is not watched 24 hours a day by anyone so new posts are only seen when people log in, whatever section it appears in. If the same request is in more than one place it just means some are deleted and it has wasted the time of the poster and admin/mod writing/reading/deleting. It is not like a job and is voluntary out of interest. I have a look most days unless away or too busy. Even then, if it needs a think or some checks on how to reply to something, it might be another time before I come up with any help.

  9. We had a 2003 1.4 petrol C3 where the first part of the accelerator pedal did not raise the revs smoothly and that was fixed by replacing the pedal and probably its electrics had worn. This had made setting off tricky. If you have a code reader that does live data you can watch the revs increase as the pedal is pressed to see if they increase smoothly as well as the % increase. We also had a C4 that did not accelerate well and a Citroen diagnostic found a specific fault code that showed the fuse box on the battery had a fault and needed replacing. If the pedal is not the fault then you ar

  10. Welcome to the forum. I can not help other than ask a Citroen dealer to listen to the engine to see what they think. Out of interest, which engine do you have ?

  12. Welcome to the forum. I can not answer your question but we had a C3 with that engine and it was lacking in power when on motorways so I understand wanting more power.

  13. According to the handbook, to replace a no. plate bulb in the rear door or the tail gate: insert a thin screwdriver into one of the cut outs in the lens, push it outwards to unclip it, remove the lens, replace the bulb (W5W), to refit press on the lens to clip it in place. If you do not have the handbook, it can be read/downloaded from the service.citroen site https://service.citroen.com/ACddb/ You may have to select your language by clicking on the flag top right and then selecting your vehicle.

  14. If you have a look under the car you should be able to see how the part is fastened in place. Then decide how easy it will be to replace it. It seems an odd thing to break, maybe a petrol filling nozzle has been resting on it and put it under stress or the petrol tank filling pipe has done this so a bit of checking is needed. A look in the Haynes workshop manual for our C5 calls this part the filler flap assembly. To remove it from the C5 it says to remove the wheel arch liner, reach up inside the wheel arch to remove a fastening clip and to push it out from inside the wheel arch. Th

  15. I think it unlikely the design of the car does not allow it to be filled up with petrol. It could be the pipe may have deteriorated as well as its normal fastening clip (assuming it did have one). If it were me, I would be replacing the pipe with a new one. However, if the pipe looks in good condition then you might get away with just fitting a new clip on it from Citroen or any other car accessory shop such as in this link https://www.eurocarparts.com/p/petrol-pipe-clips-8-10mm-BAR260A but make sure you get the right size.

  16. If the pump is running and there is water in the bottle then the pipes to the washer jets must be blocked. In winter this can happen if it is freezing weather but when it warms up the frozen water in the pipes would melt and I am sure this will have been checked by now. It is more likely the washer jets are blocked though so you can check this with a pin by poking it in the washer jets and then seeing if water comes out. You can also disconnect the piping to see if water will come out. I have read cases where the tank outlet has blocked with mould but since the pump has been replaced this woul

  18. paul h. good luck with your MOT tomorrow , I took the car for a long run on the motorway & heated the engine just before the 2nd emissions test today but it failed again , to get it to pass the mechanic took the exhaust off to reseal it, he also cleaned the bottom oxygen sensor ,that did the trick , that's me for another year ,

  19. You seem to have changed the obvious culprits. On our 2015 C4 we had a knocking which turned out to be a common fault with a batch of shock absorbers. The chrome shaft gained some play in it and knocked as it went over bumps. It had only done 25k miles but was out of warranty so I replaced both sides myself. To test for the play in situ I was told was not easy but involved trying to move the shaft. Once off the car the play was obvious. On a 2003 C3 I had knocking due to wear in a drop link. Later after a front coil spring had been replaced knocking started and it turned out the bear

  20. With the door open, you could try closing its latch against a screwdriver. If it works then it could be the latch pin on the door pillar needs adjusting. When the locks lock/unlock straight away it is due to any one of the doors not being fully closed so all of them need checking including the tailgate/back door - the dash might indicate if a door is open and show which one.

  21. This ebay listing for a C5 front suspension strut shows the fluid return hose on it and can be checked to see if it is the same as the one you have leaking https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293503038433?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=293503038433&targetid=1278447512867&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1006876&poi=&campaignid=12689626702&mkgroupid=124353408922&rlsatarget=pla-1278447512867&abcId=9300529&merchantid=137623798&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIu5bA8aTt8QIVlAIGAB0DigsfEAQYBSABEgIJBfD_BwE If the suspe

  22. A photo would help but it sounds as if it could be a suspension fluid return pipe which is fastened to the strut. Have a look at the other side of the car since that also has one. Best place to get parts will be a Citroen dealer but you could try somewhere like GSF. The suspension LDS fluid is an orange colour and if it is this that is leaking you will also need to top that up. A Haynes manual explains how to do this but it requires the suspension lowered to its lowest setting, then gradually undo the LDS fluid tank cap (pressure will be released) and the correct level will be at the bottom of
