Airbump(s) drivers side.

After the mess up getting my doors resprayed, the insurance gave me 2 airbumps which are surplus to requirements. These are as good as new despite being fitted for a few weeks. All thats missing is the nuts (2) which will be on your old airbumps. These are on eBay for £45 (cheap) and £7 postage to U...

Respraying C4 Cactus doors.

Regrettably the wind caught the door of another car which decided to park next to mine in an empty car park. My Cactus's rear door suffered a small dent just above the air-bump. The paint was undamaged. I was sat in my car when it happened. The other party's insurance is paying for its repair but th...

Re: Engine management light came on.

Final Update:

The problem was with the Adblue, the urea which squirts into the exhaust. There were issues with the tank and adblue injector. Citroen replaced the parts under warrantee, it has been fine since.

Re: Rusty Rear Brake Discs

Personally I'd be taking it to another dealer for second opinion. Regardless of how much "use" the brakes see in normal daily life, any use should be enough to clear any surface corrosion. Braking efficiency isn't regulated by load or frequency of vehicle use - a press of the pedal compresses the e...

Rusty Rear Brake Discs

My rear discs have been rusty from new. The front discs are smooth and shiny. My Citroen garage don't seem concerned and say it all boils down to braking efficiency. Now the car has gone in for its 18,000 mile service and the agent says the back wheel brake discs are rusty and I need to drive the ca...

Re: Engine management light came on.

[/quote] Hopefully it's nothing. Let us know! My local Citroen agent said the Cactus is guaranteed for 3 years. It doesn't sound like anything which could damage the engine, it may clear itself BUT if its still on on Friday, (today Monday) ring them back to book it in. The car was picked up after a ...

Re: Mpg test

I have found the MPG display on the cactus 1.6Hdi display screen to be absolutely correct. The best I have ever achieved was 97.1mpg but I took this photo at 94.0mpg. Strangely there is another pic showing the same mpg. On another occasion when I rimmed the car on filling up, the computer said 78.5m...

Re: Engine management light came on.

That sounds scary. Have you booked it into a garage? Latest news on the management light situation. Local Citroen agent say its to do with the adblue or urea and they are purchasing a tool to check this out. Then they will require the car for a few more days to fit 'new parts' presumably to the exh...

Re: Engine management light came on.

I'd see if it comes on again when you start it. The one light covers a multitude of error codes. sometimes little things cause an error code and then it clears. I had that problem with my Picasso years ago, usualy when it didn't know if it was hot or cold. after ten starts the code cleared from the...
