To get access to it, remove the lower glove box door and surround. For your safety, respect the pressure levels recommended by the manufacturer, which apply to cold tyres. Under-inflated tyres can overheat, reduce road-holding capacities, and suffer wear and damage, even blow out. I run my tyres at 45psi in all conditions and I have been doing so for many years. High tyre pressures Cause reduced comfort, less grip, greater risk of impact tyre damage and reduced stability in braking and cornering. For this, carry out just the following 6 points.
I have a c3 Picasso 2010 1. This feature is designed to prevent the vehicle from rolling, either forward or rearward, during vehicl. Greetings all, new member and first time poster here - apologies if I'm trading on toes or disregarding protocols, but I will learn! If this is the case your insurance may not pay out. First press the left button and keep it press till display flashes. To remove the cartridge, turn it a quarter turn at its cap and pull off. You need… You need to use both the buttons on the display screen. Release the plastic shroud that runs over the top of it by….
This definition is not very helpful, but correct tyre pressures are vital for safe handling and optimum braking, grip and tyre life. When I took the car for a drive yesterday I found that the steering was indeed a bit heavy and do recall that the tiers looked a bit under-inflated, which would account for it. The folloowing are also for your reference. Detach the connector wires of the bulb. If you think that the manufacturers engineers are stupid for recommending the pressures that they do, when the sales people would bite their arms off for a better mpg to advertise you must be mental. Children should be in the rear seats and in an appropriate restraint.
It shows how to remove this unit on the C3 owners' forum. Very good in that it even stated the tread depth for the spare--??? The expiry date of the fl uid is indicated on the cartridge. Of course there is always somone who knows better,never mind the vast amount of time and money that is spent in determining the optimum settings. Almost as good as the brake fluid change that they failed to do ---until i kicked up a real stink. Pressure falls when the temperature drops, so remember to regularly check and adjust the pressure of your tyres, particularly when the temperature drops sharply in winter.
Believe me, they would advise me if they thought I was unsafe. I think we all forget all the bits and pieces we do carry also, junk in the boot, glove compartment, floor storage boxes, door pockets, etc. Have the tyre inspected by a technician, who can then advise you whether it can be repaired or should be replaced. A long press on the right button scrolls down the possible values. The sealant cartridge is designed for single use; even if only partly used, it must be replaced. However, the label on my X-Picasso shows the fronts to run on a minimum of 2. These people must have more money than sense, couldn't care less about fuel savings with fuel costing £1.
Hi Guys, I thought my power steering had devoleped a fault as the steering felt a bit heavy so I checked the tyre pressure and found it to be 30 ish at the front, called into nearest gas station and pumped them up to 38 yes you guessed it, hey presto, new car to drive, lesson learned, watch your pressure. Thanks to this tread and all the posters, I now can have a better steering motor. It is a proven fact that over inflation of tyres increases stopping distances on a wet or dry surface and will probably increase the cars tendency to understeer , read any tyre manufacturers recommendations on tyre pressures. I run my tyres at 45psi in all conditions and I have been doing so for many years. Press the left button to store the value before going to the next parameter. Following my last shitroen service i was handed a work sheet where it stated the tyre tread depth. This product is harmful if swallowed and causes irritation to the eyes.
. Two faulty tyres could cost six penalty points, loss of license and a £5000 fine! It is designed to repair holes of a maximum diameter of 6 mm, only where the puncture is located on the tyre tread or shoulder. Handbook makes repeated mention of the necessity to maintain the correct tyre pressures, but never gets to tell me what those pressures are. I have just bought a citreon c3 sx and when going up hill i lose power and when going round bends on a hill. I have worked for 30+ years for a motor manufacturer not Citroen and can assure anyone reading this post that the greatest care is taken to ascertain the best pressures for the tyres in order to maximise grip and maintain steering and suspension geometry hence increased pressures for increased loads. You will find drivers using tyres bought at Oponeo all across Europe. After being well and truly done over by them many years ago, they are the last place I'd trade with, but I'm not averse to using their information for free.
Having the right car tyre pressure is important. The relay is well hidden under a curved plastic shroud which is very difficult to remove fully. If i stop at a juntion on ia hill it take time for me to pick up power. See the related link for more information. .
Hi everyone - New to the forum. Thanks for the tip re the KwikFit site. If this is the case your insurance may not pay out. Have you tried any of these manoeuvres in extreme conditions? I very much doubt that your expensive Citroen agent actually check your tyre pressures. To me it seems the sensible thing to run at 2.
