I've not had a good experience mainly of garages so far - I know not everyone is like that but I feel I have to be extra cautious in this regard. Citroen models are: c3, C4, ds3 and ds4. These should be checked and replaced a. Through the conversation we realised it was the same car. Thu 26 May 2016 18:53 Citroen C4 Grand Picasso - Faults on recently purchased used car - Falkirk Bairn Neighbour had a 06 model - twice in a 6 month period the car suffered rear suspension faults - low down at back and then more on one side than the other - cost a lot to fix on the 2 occasions. He said it did exist but I didn't need it because I'd decided to go down the legal route I asked him if he could scan evidence of it over to me via email as I wanted to see it. An oil and filter change is inexpensive and could save you from a costly, inconvenient repair to renew the turbo.
I stuck it back together and was able to immediately start the car. I understand that the car is 9 years old too and don't expect it to run like something much newer but do still think there should really be no problems at this stage. With this cost plus fitting, it demonstrates that it is definitely worthwhile bringing your car in early if you suspect a fault! We have also been getting more and more C3 Picassos with water damage in the fuse box the one that lives under the bonnet. Some actuators only work under certain driving conditions which are difficult to re-create in the workshop. Just had the car bunged on the diagnostic kit and the gearbox cooler checked. The source of the fault is usually found with the air bags that lift and support the car, as they are susceptible to leaks and wear relatively early in the car's lifetime. At the moment you're just rejecting it on the basis that something is wrong with it.
Neither I nor anyone else has fiddled with it so far as I know - not the sort of thing to fiddle with, is it? Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system. Connect the negative lead in one swift movement. However, the other day there was a clunk from the gearbox and the warning appeared. Am going to take the gearbox off the car as the report from a dealer says that either a fault with the bands breaking up or the valve block inside has a problem. Does the coolant look clear and colourful, or is it mucky brown? The Fuel filter will be dirty and require replacement. It is more likely to be un or partially burnt fuel coming out which would tally with the misfire error codes.
Looks like my diagnosis was wrong after all. They did exactly as above, squirting fire suppressant under the rad before cracking the bonnet open and sending in another dose. It has had a couple of fails in the past. So , you can have a refurbished automatic gearbox replaced and running for less than the suggested price of just a gearbox itself from Citroen. There is a guide on site to injector replacement.
Once triggered, the system flashes the headlamps, the parking lamps, the alarm indicator, and sounds the horn. The cure is of course to replace the bearing. F22 3 A Rain and sunshine sensor, windscreen camera. Diagnosis is a faulty valve block, fluid found to be both ok and of correct level, no swarf from 'box evident. You really have to decide if you are going to stay with it or get rid because it's got all the signs that it could be a money pit.
. Hence it's still at the dealers pending another 'looksee' after the weekend. The car is booked in for a Citroen diagnostic on Thursday but I will be paying for it myself. Funnily enough I took a screenshot of the autotrader advert for the vehicle as I knew they were taking the ad down for the car and wanted to show a picture of it to a relative. They've told me to also dispute the payment with my bank, which I have not been able to do yet. Thu 11 Apr 2013 12:01 Anyone had problems with Citroen car fires? The battery, the fan motor, fuse box, that type of thing. If so, then the drain points at the corners of the panel will need to be unblocked.
The dealer completely ignored my court papers so I'm waiting for the court to award judgement. Citroen C3: the car stalled turning into a drive the other day. You are only entitled if it is something which a reasonable person would consider makes a good unsatisfactory. It seems to point at the potential recall I read about to do with wiring wearing through, this I'm unaware of whether we ever had notice for to be brought in for repair. This morning I went out and the car started fine but driving away it sounded a bit like a a motorbike when I pressed down the accelerator, with the noise stopping when I took my foot away.
Citroen Picasso: airbag light staying on. But don't give up just yet. I've spoken to someone who provides independent engineers reports and he has advised to get the car diagnosed at a main Citroen dealer at the expense of the place I bought it from and then go from there. Looks like my diagnosis was wrong after all. We have had it serviced and a new fuel filter was fitted.
Lessons to be learned all around I suppose. Its a thin blue wire that rot's, it can look like its in one piece but if you give it a tug it breaks apart. Only too pleased if it's another one somewhere which is cheaper. Do I let them have a chance at fixing it or give it back an ask for a refund? All of the above happened when the car was just out of warranty. I'd be more inclined to ask the seller for £500, accept £300 and just get a new exhaust part and radiator union. He mentioned if I wanted to go through the refund avenue that I would be off the road for months, they knew their rights and they weren't just going to roll over and offer the refund.
I submitted my court papers and while I was waiting for confirmation that they'd been served, I found another lady who had recently taken the dealer to court and won seeing as they didn't bother to turn up. On a new car that would probably be enough but on a 9 year old one it isn't. Heard from the legal side of our home insurance today and they don't cover motor issues go figure so if it does go to small claims court then we'll only be able to get legal advice off them. As well as concentrating on Peugeot, Citroen and Renault brands, we also deal with many different makes of cars. Nothing to report they said. But as with most makes of car, there are a few common faults with Citroens.
