Re: No heat out of the heater

Thank you to everyone who replied. Very strange as its never happened before. I revisited the car some time later, the heat has returned. I can only assume it must be a sticking thermostat.

Re: Air-conditioning fault?

I would love to be able to help you on this problem. I bought my Cactus from a year old (demonstrator) . The A/C was always going off, every 6 months did it need refilling. This was done under warrantee, they replaced every part of the system, compressor, condenser, refrigerant, more refrigerant and...

Re: Display doesnt work

Occasionally when I start the engine my display remains black. It can take up to a minute before it boots up. This does not happen very often. What I have noticed is if there are changes to the system which are noticed by the ECU pre checks eg after refuelling that it can take a few seconds for the ...

Re: Wiper Blades

Mine were the originals and the metal pivot point had discoloured and looked unsightly so I had no issue with replacing them but you're right, other options do exist and I did take the time to remove the old rubbers from the old ones to see what the process involved. It was straightforward enough. ...

Re: Wiper Blades

What a pity. You could have replaced them for £2.25 off eBay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/28-Wiper-Blade-Refill-Universal-Cut-To-Size-Replacement-Rubber-Wiper-Strip/133116251907?hash=item1efe58cf03:g:XgYAAOSwBVpdMPNB Have some confidence my friend, re-thread them yourself. Save yourself pounds. Only ...

Re: Disks or drums?

My 64 came with disks, they were corroded and didn't offer much braking effect. I replaced them with new disks and pads, Citroen had a special offer which subsidised the costs. What a difference in braking efficiency, the only thing is when the parking brake is applied overnight I have a sudden rele...

Re: NoX sensor

My 1.6 BlueHdi has thrown up the Nox sensor fault code. Originally I cleared it and it stayed off for about 3000 miles but it came back on last week. I removed it and cleaned it/checked for broken wires or anything else obvious but couldn't see anything. I have now ordered a new one which I'm waiti...

Re: Ad blu

Reading everyones experience concerning Ad blu related issues. This is one more thing I personally don't want a repetition of. I thought it prudent to buy a quantity from the garage and top up my reservoir. It took about 2.5 litres to fill it but with the limited mileage I am now going to be doing i...

Re: 4 years old beggining of next month now first issue

Air Conditioning issues, tell me about it. Yes its me but my complaints are justified. I had an issue from day one with my Cactus. Every service required a top-up. Done under warrantee. Citroen garage replaced the condenser as they claimed it had suffered stone damage. Done under warrantee. Another ...
