Its quite funny how I work on cars all the time yet I contemplated someone else to do the work on my own

I borrowed a rather nice wrench for doing my fronts did the job nicely. I do like the way my car handles at the i’ve managed to turn the neutral (for fwd) into a very light when really pushed car

many many miles / / probably not ever!

I’ve had the car for over a year and done 6k in it. my dad had it me and did 20k odd in it and if it didnt break he didnt fix it!

I’d shudder to suspect its original fluid in there from what i topped up changing the spheres a year ago near side failed, and on dropped alot of high lhm everywhere! somthing the dipstick didnt really warn you it said there might be a leakage on removal so i had a wadd of roll ready, alas it was a wee bit than a little bit)

due an oil change soon too, any on that one. it’s got castrol gtd magnatec (10w-40 synth) in it which should be for 10k but im going to change it at the norm 6k as my dad had done past 10k when i got it. so much sweeter on the new black

i was tempted by the castrol edge last time but couldnt it!

I’ve just completed a cycle.

Getting the resevoir out was the bit as it’s got a peg out the bottom which snuggly in a hole.

The pipes on the side of the resevoir sit in a unit which is just to the side of the resevoir, so you can unclip and with a bit of effort (delicate remove the filter unit and put it in a coke bottle with the top cut

There’s a shop in Leighton that sells plastic containers, and one they do is ideal for oil it’s about 50x75x15cm.

I the contents of the resevoir into as a coinsized disc of plastic have fallen off the filter along with a small clip which holds the filter in place. The disc is the bottom of the float chamber, and sloshes causing false as you drive.

My fluid came out really which isn’t good, so I someone used hydraflush and forgot to replace it with blood after 600 miles!

out the resevoir and filters (bol to use petrol) and fight with it into place.

Repeat in 600 miles with nice blood.

What year is As the way the system is depressurised is different those with anti-sink and early ones without.

Using a one man brake/clutch bleeding and bottle made bleeding the much easier, just someone in the driver’s seat to the brake pedal.

Oil changes 6K and I use fully synthetic too, an engine flush, no idea if helps but it’s not … any of my so far!

When the cambelt on mine last year, I the coolant too (as I needed to take one of the pipes off to get it out the way) which what I’ve read is on XUDs as otherwise they can a head gasket.

Talking of they can be done yourself, is a pain in the backside, but Citroen by providing locking holes for the cam injection pump and crank flywheel, 6mm hole behind the motor) which you just M6 (I think) bolts into.

Hardest part is the covers, if you them a complete set is only from Citroen, the top back has a bolt at the back, 11mm if serves.
