Hi a work college has deadlocked his relay and the battery is totally flat so can't open bonnet to charge or replace battery as the passenger side is deadlocked. Is there away round this to open bonnet or passenger door thank u
Remove trim from inside where the quarter glass is on passenger side, it just pups off. Then you have enough room to release bonnet catch steve fox from Buckinghamshire

how do you remove the passenger seat/seats. i can see 2 bolts at the front base of seat but can't see how to remove anything at the rear of seat base ?? Cheers Ricki
the passenger seats if in bench form are held in place by two bolts through the floor at the front of seat. then go to rear and tilt the top of the seat backwards a little and slide the rear brackets forward and away from the mounting bolts which will remain fixed to the floor.. after the seat is out you can remove the rear mounting fixings R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help, I have just purchased a 2004 citroen relay 2179cc TD HDI..as soon as you turn the ignition key, even without starting it , the temperature gauge shoots to the top, right up there in the red. I am not a mechanic & dont have a clue why it does this as the engine has,nt even started yet, after driving any distance there is no evidence of overheating but the gauge remains right up there in the red ?
either a faulty sender unit, wiring short or the cluster is defective R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi, my light for "engine oil" flashing but I did change the oil a month ago and haven't drove more than a 100 miles . I was wondering if is that because I put in a bit thicker oil than usual one? Thank you
Just had the same thing, and as far as I know, if the engine oil needed replacing, you have the warning light. When you have replaced the oil, on start up the oil lamp flashes about 22 times, and then goes off. If this is the problem, it just needs to be re-set by somebody with the right equipment/. ie main dealer/Independant. John from Berkshire
oil light flashing when you start the engine IS oil service light warning.. it will flash four or five times... it needs to be plugged into diagnostic to reset OIL service light. You don't need main dealer to do this, just someone who has diag software that can talk to the citroen stuff.. not all systems can. I have the software and connections and did it on my 57 plate relay.. but in South Wales ! R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi 12 months ago I purchased campervan conversion with 12 months mot . Very pleased with it except except when i collected it the SRS light was lit. No luck with dealer regarding repair. Would this model of had seat belt wiring ? its been fitted with 2 swivel seats. cannot see any seat wiring . except an orange coloured plug with 2 pale blue wires leading into it, possibly from a double seat application as its near the center. where else should I look. Any help very much appreciated . rgds. ian
The Relay is fitted with two seat belt pretension buckles on the passenger double seat .I am converting my van and have fitted a single swivel seat but you can not unplug the double seat leads without it sowing a fault. What you have to do is fit a resister to the leads or as I have done leave them coupled and put the seat belt buckle behind the plastic step cover. Dave from Greater Manchester

The rear door on my Relay will open from the inside but not the outside. Peering inside both cables are intact on the internal and external handles and move the lock internally but I can't see far enough to see if anything else has come loose. Any ideas? It's driving me mad. PS if it needs a new catch is this an easy job? It looks fiddly to me!

hi the battery light stays on the battery is not 2years old would it be the alternator??
Quite possible, check that you have over 13volts at the battery when the engine is running and less when it is not. Thomas Rout from Caerphilly

changed fuel filter following MIL light showing on acceleration now experiencing a reduction of power when passing 2000 rpm
Hi I'm not a mechanic but do look after my own Citroen van like brakes and service etc. I had the same problem after changing the fuel filter!! Took it to be diagnosed on laptop at a specialist ( actually 3 specialist) they all said to change different sensors around the fuel system it didn't help! (The problem or my wallet) took it on myself by disconnecting the electrical plug on fuel filter scratched all terminals with tiny screwdriver & tightened female terminals with pliers then cleaned with a can of electrical cleaner & Bingo problem solved??

I have a 2.8 Relay on a 05 plate with an eml fault occuring at about 3000 revs the eml light will come on, sometimes the engine will cut out other times it runs in limp mode. If it cuts out it will not start straight away. I have checked the waste gate and that works correctly. The fault doesn't happen so much with the turbo hose disconnected. I have tried to find a suitable Obd. reader but to no avail if some one could recommend one I would be gratefull. I can not make it fault whilst not moving even if I load the engine on the handbrake. The engine has a map sensor on the manifold and a cam sensor on the top pully but I cannot see if there is a crank sensor fitted anywhere. I believe it is the Iveco engine. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks Tom.

The internal blowers only work on setting 4. What could be cause and how/ where to look to fix?
It sounds like the resistor pack has gone it is normally fitted into the fans airflow to help it keep cool. It looks like a hedgehog. Thomas Rout from Caerphilly
Thomas is correct about the part that's probably gone, but the speed control resistor as not necessarily a hedgehog shape.. there are many variants. On my 2007 Relay it was not a hedgehog like thing but a small green blade shape.. but in checking, I found that the cables at the plug that connects to the resistor had overheated.. cut and re-wired and it was fine.. cost.. a little bit of time. Either way, you can just get to the part that is under the passenger side of dash without dismantling anything.. again depending on which variant you have R Evans from Caerphilly

Hello , 2007 citroen relay SWB standard van Everytime i turn to the right or when a car passes the van Makes a beeping sound . similar to handbrake/ seatbelt but it just beeps randomly and when i have a small load say 250kg it gets alot worse. All that is wrong with it currently is the renowned crappy central locking . Any ideas its driving me mad !
Open side door, remove rubber plastic 3 metal pin mechanism and bend the metal surrounding out slightly and then pop the unit back into place. Should be tight and you should hear the unit clip back into place, this should hopefully solve the issue Tony L from Hampshire

My Relay L2H2 (puma engine) has recently started being hard to release from 6th gear (or even 5th depending on traffic) after a period of steady driving , and after forcing out of 6th (or 5th) to change down the clutch bites with little movement from the bottom of the pedal but every other clutch action afterwards in quick succession is normal ( about half way out on the pedal ) i.e. junctions & lights etc When this happens the clutch feels lighter than normal but always returns to normal feeling after that 1 change of gear , but this happens regular after each period of steady driving i.e. anything after 5 mins as if the hydraulic clutch looses pressure Any thoughts or help appreciated !!!!

Hi all, Yesterday my Relay suddenly broke down. Although the engine remained ticking-over, there was a loss of power and the engine wouldn't rev above 1100-1200rpm (also the exhaust smoke was excessive and didn't smell like it was burning right). After calling the RAC, they diagnosed that the EGR valve needed replacing. I have now replaced the EGR valve, but the problem remains the same. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
My Cit Relay (2006, 2.2 Puma) used to come up with EGR valve fault and MAF sensor fault.. changed them both and still got error messages. fault lay with the MAP sensor.. also known as turbo boost sensor.. was gunked up big time.. cleaned it and all went well. R Evans from Caerphilly

Seems weird as I only had van a week and drove back from Wales and lights were great now they are pooh. Also the clock is out by 45 mins so any help in adjusting this be appreciated. Many thanks Ian

Hi There I'm getting rain water in quite badly through the top of the side door. Tried putting gaffa tape down on the top surface of the side door to lessen the gap between door and seal but to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks Andreas
peel off the door seal and check the tightness of the bit that actually fixes to the metalwork.. I squeezed along that part of my seals and got a tighter fit. On some vehicles they also put a bead of sealant in there. You also should check the rubber itself for perishing and wear. R Evans from Caerphilly
Thanks R Evans! Do you mean that you took off the seal, then put it back on and squeezed to get the better fit? andreas from Bristol
