Citroen C5 2.0 Hdi 2008 Exclusive rims size

Post by vodnasol »

Hi all,
I will be buying rims for my car, but don't know how much of an offset is acceptable. I found out that the original rims are 17" x 7j ET32 with 5x108 PCD and CB 65.1. Also could someone tell me if I have a Mk2 or Mk3 car, because there is a leak in the AC unit and there's a difference of 150g between both generations for required refrigerant?

Regarding your A/C That depends on what vehicle and what engine you have. Best to pop your VIN up so I can see what you have (automatically masked).

The difference in capacity of the A/C refrigerant is not 150g difference in either case.

C5 X7 (MK III)
C5 X7 Euro 4 (Except DW10BTED4 vehicle): 625
C5 X7 Euro 5 (All Types): 525
C5 X7 Euro 4 DW10BTED4 specifically: 525

C5II
All Vehicles Except DW12B: 625 +/-25
DW12B: 525 +/- 25

That's strange at the local shop for A/C repair it was 500g and 650g. My car VIN is VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]

Ok from your VIN you have a C5 X7 (MK III) with DW10BTED4 engine that is EURO 4 Emissions standard. So in your case you need:

C5 X7 Euro 4 DW10BTED4 specifically: 525 g of refrigerant.

This is what the official Citroen requirements state. Over-filling it can cause damage. The 625g are for later Euro 5 vehicles not your car which is why it specifically states except DW10BTED4 C5 X7s.
