Had my heart set on a C1 for a while. Love the design, the compactness, fuel efficiency and generally how economical it would be to keep on the road. For me it seemed liked my dream car. Until I took one for a test drive ! I know it only has a 1 litre engine but I hoped that it would s…

New to this - have a bit of technical knowledge but not much! I have a V reg Citroen Xsara West Coast - done 69000, well serviced, good condition, runs well. Ever since i've had it under heavy load the temperature gauge has crept up slightly - not greatly and i've tended to ignore it - and there'…
Apparently a common problem on the C3 is leakage of eolys fluid. It is held in a plastic bag which deteriorates over time and then red fluid drips out on to the floor. See this topic from the Picasso forum http://www.citroenpicasso.org.uk/picasso/index.php/topic/21455-red-goo-coming-out-of-my-c3/#en…
Just putting this post here so as not to interfere with the important work of technical matters and problems and fixes.

Has anybody had a problem trying to add a photo (avatar) to their profile ?
As far as I remember, I put mine on the site by browsing the files on my computer but the photo had to be a small size and is only 34 kb. For adding other photos to a post this is done by putting them on another site and …
I must admit to not reading my handbook but we was driving back from Wiltshire, the sun was shining and it was very humid, we had the front windows down to let in air, mainly for our little dog on the rear seat.
Just a couple of miles outside Ludgershall black clouds and then rain, Reg was driving a…
Unlocked the car this morning and the rear hatch unlocked and opened.
So removed the inner hatch lining (you will need new clips) and took a look at the lock mechanism and the operating lever.
It was simply a matter of cleaning the road dirt around the black plate you press to open …

I thought Ford used the identical Peugeot hdi engines in the Mondeo (hdi becomes tdsi), but they seem to have worked some magic on it.
The numbers are better than Citroen- better claimed MPG ( although i don't believe those numbers anyway), but undeniable is their 163ps econetic emissions
Appreciate any advice you can provide on my issue.
I become a 1st time Citroen owner a few weeks back. The last couple of days the car would not start on a few occasions, but did start after 3 or 4 attempts.
Last night whilst 30 miles from home the car just wouldn't start. When I sa…

Hi Guys, I've just bought a C5 HDi LX Hatchback Reg '03. It's quite low mileage and in excellent condition. Only niggle I can find on it is that the wipers don't return to their parking position, but stay raised about 3". It's not a major issue, but I would like to get it sorted if at all possible. …
My mechanic has just done a bunch of repairs to my 2003 C5 2.0 Hdi, but ran into trouble trying to replace the handbrake cables.
He tells me that there is some sort of sleeve where the cable has to be fed through under the car, but he simply cannot free the old one to feed the new one in.
