Re: Steering wheel not straight when driving straight

For those who have been fortunate enough to never had their lives depend on the quality of their tyres, here is the video of my second write-off crash. Note the wet road. Also note that in this case my Michelins didn't make much difference, but I'd like to think that they gave me a bit more braking ...

Re: Steering wheel not straight when driving straight

Nothing to worry about as its easily corrected. If your Citroen garage won't do it, take it to a back street garage (like I did) and it is now driving straight and the steering wheel is also straight. £25 compared to £70+ from a Citroen garage. There is a lot to be said for smaller independent gara...

Re: Steering wheel not straight when driving straight

And i thought I had fixed this....for the MOT I needed two tyres so went for two Efficient Grips, both are on the front axle as I remembered this issue and now the car pulls to the left. Tracking is the first thing to check, which was "way out" but it seems that with the tracking correct it still p...

Re: Touch screen cutting out

Many people have found that a software update sorts it. You can do it yourself and save money. Unfortunately the other options are to find out what is causing it and avoid it, put up with it, or pay to get it sorted.

Re: Emission and Engine Fault

Trouble is the new cap isn't a fix, it is supposed to help prevent the problem. You shouldn't have had to buy a new cap. If it had full Citroen history it should have been replaced at service as the cap was subject to a recall which should have shown up at service. You don't say what year the car is...

Re: Touch screen cutting out

There are so many threads on this issue on several sites. Latest appears to be that the cars can be sorted with a software update. Are these FREE software updates, or the £100 + some seem to have been quoted? Some have been charged. It is possible that some have done it themselves, although I would...

Re: ECU fault with NOX Sensor cabling

Hi, I've been having the same problem. I had the UREA light on, Service light and engine management light on altogether. Booked it in to Robins & Day and had to pay £84 just for a diagnostic, got a call today saying it was the oxygen sensor in my exhaust and will cost £476 in total. WOW!! £476!! Ou...

Re: Spare wheel/space saver

For small holes you can get a plastic plug kit which will allow a temporary repair and allow the tyre to be repaired ( subject to the puncture being in the repairable tread area.

Re: ECU fault with NOX Sensor cabling

Each time the Adblue/Emissions warning light has come on, I always top up the tank but the alarm remains and I have to take it to the garage. For those who may be having similar issues, if the Adblue alarm is on and you attempt to top up, note that you need to put a significant quantity in before t...
