Citroen C3: Checks

Citroen C3 Owners Manual

Unless otherwise indicated, check these components in accordance with the Maintenance and Warranty Guide and according to your engine. Otherwise, have them checked by a CITROËN dealer.

Battery


The battery does not require any maintenance.

However, check that the terminals are clean and correctly tightened, particularly in summer and winter.

When carrying out work on the battery, refer to the "Practical information" section for details of the precautions to be taken before disconnecting the battery and following its reconnection.

Air filter and passenger compartment filter


Refer to the Maintenance and Warranty Guide for details of the replacement intervals for these components.

Depending on the environment (e.g. dusty atmosphere) and the use of the vehicle (e.g. city driving), replace them twice as often if necessary (refer to the "Engines" paragraph). A clogged cabin fi lter may have an adverse effect on the performance of the air conditioning system and generate undesirable odours.

Oil filter


Replace the oil fi lter each time the engine oil is changed. Refer to the Maintenance and Warranty Guide for details of the replacement interval for this component.

Particle emission filter (Diesel)

It is imperative that the maintenance of the particle emission fi lter is carried out by a CITROËN dealer.

Following prolonged operation of the vehicle at very low speed or at idle, you may, in exceptional circumstances, notice the emission of water vapour at the exhaust on acceleration. This does not affect the behaviour of the vehicle or the environment.

Manual gearbox


The gearbox does not require any maintenance (no oil change). Refer to the Maintenance and Warranty Guide for the details of the level checking interval for this component.

Automatic gearbox


The gearbox does not require any maintenance (no oil change). Refer to the Maintenance and Warranty Guide for details of the level checking interval for this component.

Brake pads


Brake wear depends on the style of driving, particularly in the case of vehicles used in town, over short distances. It may be necessary to have the condition of the brakes checked, even between vehicle services. Unless there is a leak in the circuit, a drop in the brake fl uid level indicates that the brake pads are worn.

Brake disc wear


For information relating to checking the brake disc wear, contact a CITROËN dealer.

Parking brake


Only use products recommended by CITROËN or products of equivalent quality and specifi cations.

In order to optimise the operation of units as important as the braking system, CITROËN selects and offers very specifi c products. To avoid damaging the electrical units, the use of a high pressure washer in the engine compartment is strictly prohibited .
