want to change heater matrik ,started to dismantle dash,do i need to do this to get to matrix ?thanks

Answers

If you have the 2006 onwards Relay then yes Merlys, you do. This is quite a time consuming task... you'll need to strip the dash completely, and remove the dashboard crossmember... remove the heater unit to get access to the matrix. If you give your e-mail address I'll send you the Citroen workshop diagrams. R Evans from Caerphilly

David Rudd, Worcestershire

Does anybody have any advice as to how to fit the sliding door lower rollers as I don't seem to be able to obtain the whole roller mechanism for a UK vehicle?

Answers

Dave the whole mechanism available on THE popular auction site. R Evans from Caerphilly

David, if you're just fitting new rollers and pins to the existing arm then the old pins are removed with a drift or press.. the new ones are inserted the same way and punch-locked into position, but you have to make sure the punching actually puts pressure on the pin or it will vibrate and rattle in its housing and you'll be no better off. If you are just changing the rollers then I think they are fitted with a circlips to remove old rollers, or they are pressed on and pulled off.. but you'd have to be careful not to damage the new roller bearings.

You should have all the retaining screws exposed.. undo them and lift the handle casing upwards and away from the door.. the handle release cable should still be attached, but in you case it may be free to remove. completely.

Hi i"ve just changed my battery and the engine management light stays on what could be causing this ? The old battery had a breaver pipe coming out of it, the new one is a sealed battery and has no pipe could this have anything to do whith it. Could you let me know thanks Mike

Answers

Mike, it won't make any difference whether you have a breather pipe on the battery or not.. and where the battery is situated on a Relay is fine for either.. because there are dropouts in the battery hold. Changing the battery shouldn't make any difference to engine management.. but it may have caused a surge in a component or there simply may be a new fault. Get it plugged in to a diagnostic machine.. not necessarily by Citroen (armandleg and more) but a car tuning centre will almost certainly have the diagnostic software that will work.

Hi, my 59 plate relay has a problem with the side door runner. The door works fine but one securing screw on the runner is quietly rusting away leaving a large rust streak on the body work. I've been living with this. But I have found some rust starting from under the runner which I can't live with and will need removal of the runner to treat. How do I remove/refit the runner?

Answers

If it is the steel runner that goes along the side of the van there is an allen bolt accessed when the sliding door is open and six or seven nuts accessed from inside the van.. take them off and the rail comes off. Remember to address the seal when u reinstall. If it is the roller mechanism there are two Allen bolts fitting it to the door and the roller mechanism comes off by removing the rear plastic cover at the end of the runner and slide the roller mechanism out. Installation reversal of removal. Remember to adjust the door height or your door won't lock R Evans from Caerphilly

Answers

Andrew, if your Relay is one of the variants that had the 'glowbox' then it is fitted as part of the air intake system and will be attached to the air inlet manifold. Yes there IS such a thing as a glowbox.. which Cit refer to as a resistance box.. your variant's part number is likely to be 0348-Q9.. it looks like a small radiator that is electricall heated at startup. Other variants on the 2.8HDi had a single glowplug fitted to the air inlet manifold. If u want, I can send u the parts diagram, but need e-mail addy..and this site auto-filters them.

Graham Willis, Devon

Citroen Relay

Can anyone tell me when starting my van having a bit trouble misfiring then white smoke come out for 15 seconds when its ok clears

Answers

Graham, white smoke on starting is generally acceptable for a diesel, but accompanied by misfiring is not. Problem is, there are so many factors that could influence your problems. I'd take it to an engine tuning specialist and have them carry out a diagnostic. While doing this, ask them to verify that there is no message saying "injector mismatch" or the like.. i.e you're trying to verify that the ECU has been correctly programmed with the correct injector numbers for the correct cylinders. Most manufacturers number their cylinders 1 at belt end to 4 at gearbox end... but in France, zey do zis a little different.. opposite in fact. Mine were 2/4 wrong.. and I had similar symptoms to what you're having. I have now verified injector programming and carried out a cylinder compression balancing via the diagnostic tool and .. woo hoo ! :-) A lot of continuous white smoke could be a sign that water or coolant is getting into the cylinder bores.. head gasket gone, but your info suggests it;'s gone after 15 secs. Also bear in mind that the engine fitted to most 2006- Relays (Ford Duratorq or Transit Mk7 engine) can be a pig to start anyway. R Evans from Caerphilly

Answer this question

George Kerr, Aberdeenshire

Citroen Relay

I had to move to the side to avoid a large tractor, and hit a storm drain rather hard. The Instrument panel warning lights lit up and then settled down, leaving only the 'emissions system' light showing. The van kept going perfectly OK. Later, the temp guage suddenly shot up and the high temp light came on for a second or so, before returning to normal. First thought is that a cable plug has become loosened at EGR valve / temp sensor/ instrument cluster oe ECU. Don't know where to locate these and local garage is closed for Xmas/New Year. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Answers

Cit Relays 2006 up to 2014 have ecu in engine bay to the right, just behind the nearside headlamp. The engine is probs Mk6 Transit engine.. if so, the egr valve can be seen about four inches from the radiator.. go to the middle of rad (from o/s to n/s) and a few inches to rear of veh.. you'll find egr valve.. the connector is to the offside of the valve itself .. the temp senso is a potch and involves moving a few components and removing high pressure fuel pump.. don't go THERE !!

Cheers Road evens think it was the light .disconnected it put new battery on St turn the key ignition lights come on but still won't even try to turn getting a bit annoyed with it now pal John from Northamptonshire

How recent was the starter changed and was it new or remanufactured??? Relays are renowned for eating starter motors.. mine had one changed in 2013 and I just put another on it a few months ago... but also noted that the old starter electrical contacts were quite badly gunked up with electrical efflorescence (could not have been cleaned when changed in 2013 and could have contributed to the starter going again.. straining to get the power through, perhaps).. cleaned the contacts for the new motor which works fine (so far). You could also look at the battery terminals too.. if they are dirty, corroded or not tight enough you may not be getting enough power through to kick the starter... relays take a hell of a lot of power to start, so when you replaced the battery, did you get one with correct power rating? Also, on the battery pos terminal there is a fuse for the starter that may have blown. On older versions of the Citroen Relay, the earth strap to the battery was quite rigid.. it was woven strands but the plastic coating was so thick that the whole lot was stiff... and taking it off and on would bend the metal eyelet where it fits to chassis.. and eventually begin to fracture and cease to function sufficiently for starting... Cit replaced the part with modified version... the new version at Citroen is about £60 (WHAAAAT!!!), but get the part number and take it to Pug dealer and they'll get it for less than £20 (how?... don't ask me.. it's the same part !!)

IF you take it to Citroen they will plug in a diagnostic computer to the ECU ... charge you a fine ransom for telling you the same.... instead, contact a car tuning and remapping specialist and ask them about it.. tell them what you think it is.. and ask if they can reprogram the ecu NOT to look for factory audio system..

Answer this question

Nick, North Yorkshire

Citroen Relay

How do you remove the heater and fan switch from the dashboard as it only works if you push inwards. Thanks

Answers

Hi Nick, According to the Citroen manual this seems to be quite a bit of a task... Two preliminary operations it states you have to do is remove the fascia and then the dashboard crossmember.. a lot of effort, but apparently necessary to get to the connections for the cables that are fitted to the control selector either side of the heater itself.. the actual switch panel is attached by two screws that are accessible after you remove the radio/cd unit. List of actions necessary to remove the crossmember include: 1. removal of fascia 2. The built in systems interface 3. A selection lever 4. THE STEERING COLUMN ! 5. the heater Citroen quote a FIVE hour job for removing the crossmember ! and 3.5hrs to strip the dashboard. I don't know if this would work, but you could try this - removing the radio/cd to access the upper heater switch mounts, remove the switch panel below the heater controls (there is a splined bolt hidden under the rubber base of the cupholder that allows the removal - I've done mine). If you wanna get to the fixings for the central console, remove the heater vents either side of it by pulling them towards you, remove the top storage (the moveable clipboard - the fixings are under the clipboard so lift it upwards to get to them), remove the gearstick gaiter by pulling it up along the direction of the gearstick.. that will get you access to the fixings for the central dash trim (6 screws).. once the screws are removed you have to unclip the central fascia panel which is in between the two screws that you have removed from under the clipboard part. Removing the central glovebox may give you enough access to the other ends of the cable connectors on the heater controls.... but looking at some Citroen diagrams, you'll have to remove the lower dash panels either side of the central console.. it does seem a massive job to change a relatively small component... and for what sounds like a loose connection in your case.

Answers

Donald, does sound like your battery is goosed.. but it could also be electrical issue... the Citroen Relay takes a hell of a lot of power from a battery to start it. Using a "battery I had laying around" may have helped your van battery.. but, unless this one was in peak condition, it too would get frazzled quite quick. But you should also consider why the battery has gone.. is it because it is well worn.. and just had its day, or could it be the alternator faulty... I had a faulty connection on alternator that was not charging my battery (on a '57 Relay), but the battery warning light did not illuminate on the dash.. it was just that I knew the battery was quite new so shouldn't have discharged which made me check other bits.. and connections.

Citroen Relay

Hi all I'm hoping someone could help me I'm having difficulty trying to find out why my heaters don't get warm only blow cold air I've checked all fuses and all are ok. Could it be a relay that's at fault as I've found one under the bonnet that's a 50amp relay and the under side of the fuse box lists it as t07 heat 2 I have no idea if this relates to the internal heater any advice appreciated 2006 pre facelift

Answers

Hi Andy, by your heaters, I assume it's the interior comfort heater you're on about.. if so, the fuse you found in the engine bay relates to one of the cooling fans for the radiator. If your heater/blower/demister is blowing air (albeit cold) rule out the electrical part.. so no fuses, resistors or relays What is more likely is that the coolant may have not been changed in a while.. it does get gunked up.. and it may have blocked your interior heater matrix.. try draining the coolant and flushing it a few times. Also, you could consider that the thermostat in the water system may have failed.. but you'd probably be noticing the engine getting too hot and the cooling fans on most of the time. The thermostat stays closed while the engine is cool, to ensure that the engine reaches temp early... then once it does, the thermostat opens to allow coolant into the rad to maintain the temp as it is.. but.. coolant then also passes thru the heater matrix for you to get warm inside the cab. Also, not sure (yet) if the pre-facelift has a bleed screw.. if it does, it is possible you have air in the heater matrix causing a lock... I'll try and check that one out and get back.

Answers

Jalal, it is more likely that the sensors on the sliding door are at fault.. not necessarily faulty, .. they may just need a good clean.. but also check that the sliding door hasn't dropped to cause the contacts on the sensors not to meet. The rollers have a habit of wearing which results in the door dropping just enough to cause this problem... as it did on mine. (57 plate) R Evans from Caerphilly

Not quite sure but does sound like the connections to the rheostat may be incorrect.. to change the plug to the rheostat (the speed control module, you'll probably have cut the old wires.. are you 100% that the new plug wired up correctly? 1. Heater does blow = heater itself not kaput 2. Heater blows at faster and slower speeds = rheostat/speed control unit not kaput 3. Able to select different speeds = dashboard selector works 4. blows faster or slower where it perhaps shouldn't - possible to be incorrect wiring or a loose wire or short somewhere R Evans from Caerphilly

Hello, I hope someone can help. my engine management light has started to come on and I lose power but as long as I stay at 2000rpm it will still carry on running but won't go above 40. I have taken the maf sensor clip off to see if it is the maf, but I started again. Any ideas anyone please.

Answers

Sean, it could be a million and one things, mate. The EML comes on and engine goes into 'limp' mode (limits the engine rev capability and thus the speed) when the ECU (the brain) gets sent an electronic signal from a wide range of components saying something is not quite right. To protect the engine from potentially serious or catastrophic damage, the ECU puts the engine to limp mode. It will need plugging into a diagnostic machine where the diagnostics can read the data in the ECU and it should advise what 'error' was detected.. but be prepared for a list of error codes.. not all necessarily at fault... one faulty component could give rise to error codes for other components. Get it plugged in to diagnostics and there is no need to go to Citroen (ching-ching) for a diagnostic... there are many engine tuning places that are much cheaper and with the right knowledge can give you a much better diagnosis.

Hi can anyone help me I have but a new diesal filter on my relay minibus and I can't start it up now, has it a fuel cut off switch fitted and if so were is it located!

Answers

Hi Trevor... as standard there is no fuel cut off switch installed, unless someone added on as a security thing. When u had the diesel filter changed.. who did it and did it start immediately after the filter changed... thing is, on a 2006- relay there is generally no fuel bowl primer fitted which means that when the paper filter is put back in the bowl, it should be filled with diesel, left for five to soak into the paper and then topped up before putting the lid back on... and once all final checks done, turn ignition on for three secs, then off for three, then on and so on.. three or four times to pressurise... then it should start. Citroen recommend a series of pipes and stops and all sorts of rigmarole to prevent airlocks in the diesel system when changing a filter.. (may be just to justify their charges), but they are not really necessary.. however.. filling the bowl is... the fuel pump in the tank will not fill the bowl quick enough to prevent the airlocks going into the system. Some variants have a primer bulb which after reconnection you need to squeeze repeatedly until there is good resistance felt.. when the system is filled and initially pressurised.
