    Default C5 v6 how to bleed coolant?

    Recently acquired a black C5 2007 as a daily drive. Just renewed the starter motor which was a bit of a job, never seen a starter that well hidden. Car is back together now with the correct coolant ( red) after a reflush.
    could someone tell me where the bleed points are? Found one above all the hoses on motor, one on radiator and the coolant reservoir.
    any info would be great.
    thanks,
    john

    Hi John,

    It's not even mentioned in the C5 mechanics handbook that I have. The Xantia Mechanics Handbook has one page that says to use a filling funnel, open all the bleed screws, fill it up closing bleed screws as required and then run engine up to fan cut-in temperature, then remove filling funnel - it doesn't even have a picture of where the bleed screws are.

    I don't think the Haynes C5 book covers the V6 in detail. I think you have probably found nearly all of them but check out for one near where the heater connects through the firewall.

    Maybe someone else can help with more specifics.

    Cheers,

    Ken W

    It's in the Carnet de Poche, 2008 edition, for motor XFV (3 litre petrol) pp 80-83 in French.
