Now it is second time the factori is calling our C3 back because of problems
with the camshaft. Last time we got a new cylinderhead for the motor
We olso have trubbles with the lamps I do not understand why H7 55W lamps
only last 3 months I have asked the workshop but the answer was that it was
normal ??? The battey olso has been caput .It only lasted 1½ year ???? We
got a new before the garantie run out. I am quiet sure there is something
wrong with the voltageregulation from the generator .
At the workshop they tells us it is normal ?????
I am ofraid they will not find what is wrong before the car is run out of
garantie ???.But then they find out and I have to pay ?
Can anyboddy help me.
Bee carefull that your car has been cheked before it is run out of garantie
H7 (and also H4) lamps in a Diesel engine doesn't seem to have
a long life. I have had this problem also with my previous cars
a Peugeot 306, Citroen Xsara, Citroen Saxo, all with a Diesel engine.
I hear the same story from other people with a Diesel car, it seem to
be the heavy vibrations caused by the Diesel engine.
It is a pity that H7 lamps are not so cheap as H4.
djindivik ( email@example.com) gurgled happily, sounding much like
they were saying :
Yes, that'll really help.
If you buy a Ford TDCi diesel, it'll be such a vastly different engine to
an HDi PSA car...
Clue - Ford buy HDi lumps off PSA and rebadge them to TDCi.
I have had my 405 td for 8 years now, and have hardly ever had to change a
headlight bulb. I have never changed the driving light bulbs.
It is possible that you have a vibration problem around the headlight, but
the one thing which kills bulbs is too many volts.
It seems to be somthing that effects the new cars only, 1998 and up.
The Peugeot dealer and Citroen dealer did check the power circuit, but
find anything. A friend of me with a C5 HDI, also has the same problem with
his light bulbs. It must be something with the heavy diesel vibrations.???
