Re: Spec. of 'identical' cars across EU countries

I doubt whether there is any truth in the statement that all EU cars are the same spec. You do not say which engine you have, but stop/start is more to do with the power output. An 87 bhp petrol will not have stop/start, but a 110 or 130 bhp car probably will.

Re: No Bluetooth in my C4 Cactus Puretech Touch? PLEASE HELP

My advise: 1. Get in your Cactus and switch on its multimedia system 2. Go to your phone Bluetooth menu and start Bluetooth search 3. The search should return your a new bluetooth device found 4. Tap on it to pair 5. On the screen of the Cactus multimedia system you should see a pairing request and...

Re: New to Cactus'

Just bought a new Cactus, then noticed the C4 Cactus was conspicuous by its absence in the Citroen model list. Such is life. Previous car was a Dacia Duster which I added lots to. I would say if it's electrics, get the Citroen loom as it will usually just plug into the socket. Check YouTube for how...

Re: Air-Conditioning

Modern air con compressors are engaged all the time, hence no click when switched on, there is a control valve which allows the passage of refrigerant, when required, contact an air con speciallist, forget dealerships and tyre garages I really think that is not correct. There isn't the thump there ...

Re: Emissions fault!!!

Part of the issue here is that all Adblue caps should have been replaced under recall. As this is not a safety recall it is left until the car goes in to Citroen for service. If you don't take your car in for regular service then the issue will not be found. It is all very well saying that the servi...

Re: Air Con - How loud should it be?

It doesn't suck the air in. The engine fan comes on to cool the returning aircon fluid. It is quite normal. Should be quite quiet inside the car.

Re: Taking an oil reading

I suppose it may depend on how the oil is changed. The earlier 1.6HDis had a very specific regime for changing the oil. This entailed ensuring that the oil was drained hot (not unusual) and that all of the oil was removed from the sump. The theory was that contaminated old oil would cause problems w...

Re: NOx Sensors

Usually when the Adblue pump fails, you get the 'Urea' warning light on the dash. Hopefully it will be a sensor (expensive enough). Have you any warranty?
