I just purchased a C8 2.2 petrol 2004. The cambelt tensioner failed apparently at 15 miles an hour. Previous owner sold it to me cheap.

Seems to be everything on net about 2.2 diesel engine but nothjing about 16v petrol.

With the diesel engine valves parallel to piston so breaks rockers aparently I am assuming petrol engine probably more damage and probably engine rebuild, about to remove head any advise would be helpful. Possible damage wise etc.

Welcome to the forum.


If you need a workshop manual the Citroen service box is worth getting and comes on 3 dvds to put on your computer and includes parts and wiring diagrams. It can be obtained through ebay.


Timing belt failure is a common thing on the C8 due to rain getting on to it and a part is available to prevent this.
