French Diagnostic Services Telford

Welcome to our Citroen C3 Pluriel roof repair, parts advice section.

If you are experiencing problems with your Citroen C3 Pluriel roof or just have a few questions you would like to ask then you’ve come to the right place.

As an independent Citroen Peugeot specialist, French Diagnostic Services can carry out any major roof repair to the Citroen C3 Pluriel for a fraction of the main dealer price. With over 15 years training at Citroen UK and after over 200 roof repairs we have customers who come from all over the UK and Europe to have their cabriolet roof problems resolved by our expert. No job is too big or small and the majority of the time the C3 Pluriel roof can be repaired rather than having a new roof fitted which is what most garages will quote you for as they are unable and unqualified to repair the roof to such high standard.

Aswell as offering a repair and fitting service for the C3 Pluriel Roof, we are also able to diagnose faults with your C3 Pluriel as we use the latest main dealer diagnostic equipment to cover any fault with the Citroen C3 Pluriel. Please visit our Diagnostic area to read more information on how we diagnose your vehicle.

We stock new and used Citroen C3 Pluriel roof parts which can be posted next day in the UK or shipped worldwide. Please check out our feedback page to see the comments left by our happy Citroen C3 Pluriel customers and i f you have any queries please contact us .

We supply all parts for the Citroen C3 Pluriel and stock the fabric roof, runners and cables, motors, rams, struts and ECU’s. See below for a full list of the parts we can supply.

*If unfortunatley you have come to the decision that your Pluriel is beyond economic repair and you are thinking of selling or scrapping the vehicle, please contact us as we would be more than happy to consider purchasing your Pluriel from you.*

At FDS we use the main dealer diagnostic equipment to re-initialise the roof in the event of it being dammaged, jamming/jammed or when the ECU shuts down so we can safely work on and repair the Citroen C3 Pluriel roof without further damage. Do not attempt to close or force open the Pluriel roof by hand as you will damage the roof further . If you need any advice on the Citroen C3 Pluriel then give us a ring, it only takes a phone call. If you would like some help on how to operate your C3 Pluriel roof then take a look at our Citroen C3 Pluriel Modularity Guide . It gives you all the information on how to operate the roof and how to take off the arches to create the cabriolet style.

If the roof does not close then use some strong tape to secure a plastic sheet over the roof and do not attempt to open the boot as it will not open. The ECU will not know where the roof is and as a precaution will disable the boot.

The Citroen C3 Pluriel roof uses cables, ECU’s and micro switches to enable the folding action. We have built no end of these on a daily basis and most of the damage is a direct result of the owner forcing it shut because the roof has stopped operating for some reason. At French Diagnostic Services we use the Diagnostic equipment to safely operate the roof to either open or close the roof slowly.

In stock we have new and used Struts – Sliding Kits – Hinges – Sun Roof Motor Gears – Trims – Roof Slides – Cables – ECU’s – Repair kits for plastic sliders – Motors – Micro Switches – Roof cassette hinges – Rams – Top Hooks for rear cassette – Rotatory Switch – Rear badge flaps

When our local garage in Manchester quoted us £4000 for a new roof mechanism plus a boot lid hinge we were ready to say goodbye to my wife’s much loved Pluriel but then we found FDS who did the whole job for £1086. So thanks Stuart for being so positive in your inspection of the damage and making it possible for my wife to have her Pluriel back.You chaps have a great operation down there – Fantastic.

Amazing experience, had a small problem with our roof and a cat. and an insurance company. Contacted Sean and Stuart who were so helpful, Muriel (as we call her) was booked in for two days at the begining of september. We booked a hotel for 3 nights as we were setting off from Kent and decided to have a look round the area while we waited. Sean was helpful,(did not meet Stuart as he was on holiday) nothing was too much trouble. The car was fixed in two days as promised.

We cannot thank them enough and would reccomend anyone with a pluriel with roofing problems to contact these two lovely men.

Absolutely fantastic service. One quick phone call and my problem stuck roof was sorted .Would highly recommend this site and the staff .Thanks so much

THE BEST BY MILES My knight’s in shining overalls! Bank holiday weekend looming, rain forecast – the roof won’t close and is deader thank a dead thing. Search for help on the internet and up pops French Diagnostic Services which I call immediately hoping at 4pm they haven’t knocked off early and that the panic in my voice doesn’t make me sound a total idiot.

Explain my concerns and speak to Sean who is friendly, understanding and most of all knows his stuff. He guides me through a step by step workaround and makes it sounds child’s play, but it is and IT WORKS – PHEW. Wish I lived closer to thank you in person but would recommend you to anyone with a Citroen. Might call again when I take the bars off if that’s ok.

Thanks again.

This is really my wife’s car, but I love driving it. We got it because there was and is nothing else comparable: it is just what we would have tried to design ourselves. When Jeremy Clarkson said ‘do not buy this car’ I knew it was just right for us! After five years withut any fault the roof and rear door failed to work. When our local dealer gave us the blank look and true to form started on about a new roof I knew it was time to do an internet search.

FDS jumped right out from the screen and I was duly impressed by the testimonnials. Although based in Pembrokeshire I have business in the west Midlands so called first for a diagnosis when in the area. Sean stroked and probed the roof like a chiropractor. I could see immediately that everything I read on the screen was true! He and Stuart completely inspire confidence and richly desreve everything written about them.

I left ‘Chunky’ for the day and picked up Sean’s loan car, returning to find everything done on time and working perfectly. Great guys, wonderful service. It made my 8-hour round trip well worth it. Otherwsie Chunky would have been on the scrap heap beyond econimc repiar.

I will be contacting my local dealers to tell them to send anyone with a Pluriel roof problem straight to FDS.

Exceptional customer service, explained in detail what was needed, and how it was to be achieved. I wish more so car service and repair centres were run like this one. 5 star service with a five star price.

From. Dennis Lee (01st Jun 2013)

We would highly recommend the French Diagnostic’s to anyone with a convertible roof problem / issue. The lads were great from start to finish. Good help and advice over the phone, then a perfect diagnosis in about ten minutes of seeing the car. It was fully repaired at very reasonable cost in under two hours.

Thanks for the excellent service. Den Lee Brennan

If you have a problem with your pluriel roof or boot there really is a solution. Dont use a Citroen UK dealer, save money get it fixed properly. Take it along to FDS; we cannot recommend them more highly, a great garage and ideally located for visiting Telfords Ironbridge.

Well worth the travel from Yorkshire. Many Thanks from Bob Joan Ellis

From. Richard Matthews (25th Mar 2013)

Rear window hinge on daughter’s Puriel snapped and caused roof to twist and cease to work. Citroen Dealer fitted new hinge but advised me not to use sliding roof again. Dealer quoted around £3K plus expensive fitting costs for new roof as the only option to get roof working again. That cost was far more than value of the car. but sun roof. cabriolet / spyder option is kind of the point of having a Pluriel.

A little time on internet lead me to FDS site and a quick look at the site and also at other Pluriel owners comments convinced me to make contact. Called in to talk to them on my way to a meeting in Kent from North Yorkshire and arranged to drop car off on return journey which I completed on train after Sean dropped me off at station. Without even attempting to open roof. but having listened carefully to the tale I told.

Sean quickly and correctly diagnosed what needed to be done. what parts required. and provided quote there and then. No new roof required after all. main dealer. Really impressed by helpful. friendly. honest and above all knowledgeable attitude of FDS. Sean knows all there is to know about Pluriel roofs. and judging by other comments is excellant on mechanicals aswell. and not just on French cars.

Our vehicle was repaired within 2 days. I collected it by coming down on train from Yorkshire. cost was as per quote and fraction of cost of Dealer’s new roof. I was shown broken parts. given advice on forward maintenance and do’s and don’ts.

Really impressed. well worth the travelling. an astonishing example of customer service combined with outstanding knowledge and ability. Well done Sean. Stuart and team. Thanks.

Comment: Absolutely brilliant – do not take a Pluriel anywhere else! After a very stressful experience with an ‘approved repairer’ who clearly had no idea and had tried to charge me for a job not done, FDS have sorted my leaky boot which would not open. Everything was explained to me and the cost was very reasonable compared to Citroen. Well worth the drive from London, my car won’t be going anywhere else.

Thank you so much!

From: gareth and jeff lloyd

Comment: we brought our citroen pluriel with its broken roof from chesterfield derbyshire because our local garages could not fix it, the main dealers wanted to put on a new roof at the cost of £4000+, FDS fixed our roof for a fraction of the cost, at all times they kept us informed and were extremely efficient and courteous, i would certainly use them again and would recommend them to everyone thanks so much jeff and gareth
