This can be the result of grease or oil leaking onto pads--likel for example a bad grease seal.

SOURCE: Hi ive got a citroen dispatch van 1.6 hdi 07

you surprise me,these vehicles are bullet proof under normal circumstances and yes the syncros can wear out like any make of vehicle ,but this old grandad who passed his test in a viva with no syncro on first gear ,and passed his hgv on a vehicle with no syncros at all was taught to drive in a different era and rule one was neutral and handbrake on when stopped ,not holding it on a hill by slipping the clutch ,secondly to not put a vehicle in first gear whilst moving ,well it wouldnt go anyway ,double the clutch between gears so as to reduce the wear on the syncros and gears .not to ride the clutch between changing gears and also change down using double the clutch to save the brakes and stop vehicle slipping or skidding on a wet road ,not fly up to a roundabout ,slam on brakes force it into first gear at 30 mph then try to imitate evil kenival by going around on two wheels .This sort of driving will only damage the gearbox like syncros and clutches not lasting very long .

SOURCE: Hi, I'm thinking of fitting

fitting rear flaps is a simple job depending on the kit you buy......you may find the rear window gets dirtier with flaps fitted,due to spray being finer.(citroen is the same a puegeot)

The Caliper Adjustment Lever is what adjusts the caliper - ensuring the brakes pads are in proper placement to the rotor for effective braking. The lever must be cycled in order to keep the calipers adjusted properly. The only way the lever is cycled, is by the usage of the e-brake.

Remove the cable from the Caliper Lever. Be careful when handling and removing the spring.

The Caliper Adjustment Lever is what adjusts the caliper - ensuring the brakes pads are in proper placement to the rotor for effective braking. The lever must be cycled in order to keep the calipers adjusted properly. The only way the lever is cycled, is by the usage of the e-brake.



Initial testing: After you have removed the ebrake cable - kneel in front of the rotor and give it a gentle shake (as if you were removing it). Do you notice any PLAY between the pads & rotor?? Make note of this.



For the TSM kit caliper adjustment instructions - visit here: Troubleshooting.htm#2 and click on "Adjust Caliper Parking Brake".

Good luck.

My 2006 1.6 hdi citroen c4 with DV6TED4 engine came out without an auxilliary belt tensioner.Apparently a stretch belt was used can you please give me the correct belt number?


check that the belt tension is not by moving the alternator on a pivot with a bolt through a slot on a stay
it is necessary to have an adjustment method as all belts stretch and no belts are manufactured exactly the same length

Citroen c4 judder


Hi Sarah
Believe it or not the thing that causes most of the running problems on the C4 is the brake light switch,It is located under the left side of the dashboard 4 wire plug,If your C4 is left hand drive then it will be under the right side of the dashboard,These switches fail and cause all sought's of problems including running problems,silly messages coming up on the dashboard,But the brake lights still work,The switch is very cheap 17 pounds in the UK and 15 minutes to fit.
