I want to change spark plugs and fuel filter, what is the trick to removing the fuel filter. How/what do you do to remove the spark plugs. Any help would be appreciated.

    Help! about four weeks ago I read a very descriptive solution( with photos of each stage) to replacing the offending part which caused a 2002 C5 gear stick to lock into Park. Can you recover it for me please and put it back on the Citroen Forum.
    Many thanks. BigD
  5. Oh man .... look at all the messages here.... I hadn't noticed any of them before. So I need to lock a thread, find what black paint I've used and get a trailer load of part

    The avatar is my 5year old daughter driving the go-kart around (not under it's own power, I'm towing it with the mower so I have some control over how fast she goes).

    Time to lock this thread Shane..
    I'm getting a bit sick of having to defend people slandering me and saying outright lies on a public forum.
    your job as moderator is to stop this personal attack on me.

    G'Day Shane,
    When you painted your Turbo, what paint did you use for the Black Out panel on the boot lid?
    You did paint it in acrylic didn't you? I need something that is compatible with PPG dulon and will last without the crazing that I have seen on some examples!
    Cheers Gerry
