Hi All,

I have tried searching but could not find anything.

My neighbour has a C1 and has asked if I could service it for them, as Cit are asking silly money to do it!

Trouble is I am not sure what would normally be done on a 30K service. I have said to them that I will probably do an oil change, change Air and Fuel Filters and plugs!? Plus do a quick check of tyres, belts, wipers and fluid levels?

Is there anything I have drastically missed (not that I think there can really be much else to such a small car!!

TIA :D

Phil

Is a good start, and should be cheaper than you'll get it locally.

Plugs, too.

That should do really, for a home service.

Check the brakes, the fronts can wear very quickly.

Thanks for the info. Will do the oil change the air filter and plugs and do a general check.

Will post back here anything that might be useful to others.

Thanks again.

Citroen recommend you change the brake fluid at 2yrs, which may be a consideration depending on the vehicle's age.

Thanks for all your responses, it's appreciated!

I did the basic service, Oil change, plugs, air filter. All pretty simple really, nothing difficult at all. I especially liked the fact that the oil filter and the drain plug were right next to eachother! Saves dragging the oil can all over the place, can be done in one hit!

I checked the fron brakes and they will need doing soon, they asked me if I would do them and I obliged! Is there a special caliper bolt? An odd sized allen key? Just so I have the right tool when the time comes. Will have to check the rear drums when I do the front.

Thanks again!

Blimey brakes need doing?! My pads and discs were only just over halfway through their life at 30,000 miles. Do the owners do emergency stops for a living? :lol:

easy job...
jack, wheel out, you'll need a Torx key 20 or 25, and 2 M8 35mm bolts that will work as extractors, 13mm hexagon key, and lots of old clothes for clean up.
if your discs need to be replaced, then before you start, you'll need a big screwdriver, place it between the worn pads+disc,and PRESS the caliper in order to move it back....
watch your brake fluid bottle !

I use normal jack stands and everything happens in my own garage. Also worth mentioning, I do inspect and change oils and fluids more often than the service manual states. This is due to snow, roadsalt and temperatures below zero 6-7 months a year AND a lot of what I call small town driving conditions. The car is started/stopped often and every drive seldom takes more than 15-30 minutes. So harsh driving conditions :-) Every now and then the car is driven over a couple of hours in more than 50mph just to clean the intake system a bit. I have also replaced the cars regular bulbs with LED bulbs. That was a great improvement, since it is pretty dark here during winter times. No need to have extra LED bar with those new headlight LEDs.

Points marked in bold, means you have to buy the item.

I=inspect, A=adjust, L=lubricate, C=clean, R=replace, F=fill

Every 30 000km / bi-yearly (whatever comes first):
    A full 15 000km service and...
    Battery function (i)
    V-ribbed belt (i)
    Clutch function (a)
    Throttle body (c)
    Gear oil (r)
    CV boot and joint (i, replace if showing signs of wear)
    Wheel bearings (i)
    Rear brake pads and drum (i, measure pads)
    Parking brake function and clearence (a)
    Brake fluid (r)
    Wheel alignment (i)

Every 15 000km / yearly (whatever comes first):
    Tires winter/summer (i, measure depth og grooves)
    Break pads and discs (i)
    Engine oil and filter (r)
    Air filter (r)
    Spark plugs (r)

    Coils and wires (i-c)
    Coolant G13+ specs (i, replace every 5 years)
    Washer fluid (f)
    Break fluid (i)
    Battery poles (c)
    Pollen filter (r)
    Wipers (r)

    Seals around doors, windows etc (L)
    Light bulbs (i)

Every 7-8 000km
    Engine oil and filter (r)
    Air filter and visible housing (i-c)

Please comment if you find something to improve on the list, other than the obvious, I replace and inspect things twice the rate that is stated in the service manual.

Here is a list of what items I use and their specs.

    Engine oil: I have used both ACEA C2/C3 and A3/B4, API SM/SN with 0W30, 5W30 or 5W40. I use the cheapest I can find since I change my oil pretty often instead. I buy 30-40liters in 5ltr canteens at a time. I believe I paid 4,33 GBP last time per liter.
    Coolant: Use the cheapest G13+ specced coolant on the market. I think I pay about 2 GBP pr liter.
    Break fluid: Again i use DOT 4 spec fluid from a typical Walmart company in Norway. I think I pay about 8 GBP pr liter.
    Spark plugs: I use Ridex plugs from Autodoc. Have used NGK earlier, so wonder if Ridex is different. Paid 2,50GBP per plug.
    Pollen filter: I use cheap Ridex bought from Autodoc. Paid 4,50 GBP.
    Air filter: Again cheap Ridex filters from Autodoc. Paid under 3GBP pr filter.
    Oil filter: I use filters from Stark or Japanparts bought at Autodoc. Paid approx 3GBP for it a month ago.
    Gear oil: I use Mobil 1 75WFE API GL-4 (same as manufacturere use). I paid about 8GBP pr liter at Autodoc. You need 1,8liters

I believe that for a 30k service I will have to pay maybe 30-40GBP in parts and DIY.
