  1. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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
