Fault Help

Common or potential faults associated with the French & Italian range.


Having worked with our chosen marques for quite some time now, it stands to reason that we have come across a whole plethora of faults, failures and potential automotive hiccups. Sometimes they are quite clearly due to a lack of maintenance. Others are due to poor design. Then there is just bad luck.

Here follows a list (in no particular order) of some of the more common occurrences we have encountered. Included are our comments and/or opinions as to how 'we' have dealt with the situation or believe would or could be an effective solution. Our ramblings are by no means a substitute for competent professional diagnosis and should be regarded as bodhi for interested parties.

Citroen & Peugeot Pneumatic Suspension Woes

Friday, 23 December 2016  |  Mick

Affecting: [C4 Picasso C4 Grand Picasso and Expert & Dispatch & Scudo Vans]

There is much talk about this problem. No doubt you have already trawled the net for a glimmer of hope - like many others, to little avail.

The pneumatic system as employed by PSA on these vehicles is sadly fraught with problems. Having forked out for airsprings three times at the dealer's in 5 years and then being presented with a bill to replace the compressor was just the final straw for one of our spring conversion customers.  PSA honoured the warranty on vehicles of a certain age and did make a contribution on later vehicles. Alas, that has come to an end now and you are basically on your own.

Anyway, like knights in (grubby) armour  Eurocarcare charge to the rescue with a foolproof conventional spring conversion. To date we have converted well over 500 very sad Citroen Peugeot and Fiat owners to happy motorists again. Our kits can be installed quickly and easily with little more than a spring compressor.
