    Default C5 X7 2013 2l HDi particle emission filter additive

    Hi AF brains trust

    The C5 presented a ‘Particle emission filter additive too low’ warning on Good Friday. Am trying to find out the right fluid to get my local mechanic to refill with. The handbook is spectacularly unhelpful and I can’t find anything on the AF threads, so can anyone help please?

    Thanks

    You will need your VIN number but EAI in Sydney or Melbourne could probably supply.

    Cheers, Ken

    Thanks Ken - do you (or anyone) know if there is a publicly accessible Citroen website or database where you can enter your VIN and find out such tech specs etc?

    I will list some info below the late c5 runs a specific fluid but in saying that a lot of my customers have insisted on the jlm stuff probably due to price and I’ve seen no bad affects.
    Also if your sat Nav isn’t upto date I can get you the 2018 Australian map (the latest) just pm me.

    The Citroen service website is at Service Box

    It runs in English as well as French, and is intended for mechanics.

    Hi all - looks like I may not get the fluid refill for a week or two, depending on delivery and workshop bookings. I’ve used the C5 very little since the warning light appeared, but wondering if there are any problems likely to arise by driving it? They would be largely country kms - at present it’s still using the same tank of fuel as when the warning appeared, if that is relevant.

    Grateful for any advice

    Thanks HDi

    You probably have 1/4 of a litre left so business as usual don’t forget it only injects what 3.0 L\ 150 =20ml per full tank so you should be good unless you decide to do a Dakar rally type run in the next week.

    Advice to me from Greg at Con Cars when our C5 brought up the warning was "you've got at least 5,000km in it yet - no panic".
