  1. Yes, the car was clearly identified as a diesel Parts Gateway does that based on the registration number.
  2. I bought a replacement fuel tank from a breakers via Parts Gateway. They clearly had the correct details of the car and supplied a tank, which I had fitted by my local garage. When we came to fuel the car up, we found the nozzle wouldn't fit in the filler neck, because it was obviously a petrol tank, which has a smaller nozzle than the diesel. Where do I stand will this? Clearly I could claim the cost of the tank back, but it's on the car and I'll be getting a bill for 3 hours labour very shortly, which will be about £120, and I'll have to pay for more labour to take it off and send it ba
  3. I thought that warranty periods did not have an impact on the SOGA, but it was about reasonable expectations of durability? If these kind of injectors are becoming servicable items, then surely they would have to be listed in a service schedule (say the 50,000 service), and again there would therefore be a reasonable expectation that you don't have to smash half the engine to bits to replace a servicable item? Do you have any info on the reliabilty on the HPCR engines that I can get at?
  4. I have the 2.0 HDI engine in mine, and the service manager told me exactly what you've just said - the cylinder head will not come off it you can't remove the injectors first! The technician from the dealers emailed me this: I'm going to try using the SOGA, but I'm unsure about whether to claim for damages and force the dealer to repair it, or take it to a diesel specialist that has been recommended to me, and then try to claim those costs back. The first option could leave me carless for a long time, the second leaves me out of pocket (although less that if the dealer does the repair).
  5. Hi I have a Citroen C8, bought from new, that is now just over 5 1/2 years old with ~62,000 on the clock. It has a full service history that was only done by the dealer during the entire warranty period of 3 years. It developed a problem with a loss of power below 3000rpm about 5 months ago, and since then I've been dealing with the dealer and Citroen trying to get this resolved. I've quickly detailed the timeline below of the last few months: June– loss of power begins to appear July – dealer looks at it and diagnose a sticking variable vane turbo – offers fuel additive
