Problem description:

A faulty connection between the fuel lines and the diesel injectors may cause a leakage of diesel which then accumulates in the hollows at the base of the cylinder head. When these hollows are full, fuel might spill over onto the surfaces of the exhaust system, resulting in a fire hazard.

The recall affects vehicles manufactured between January 2012 and May 2013.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Citroen dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
