Ah well, as long as the ecu and stuff are happy with what they see from the other sensor as the temp reading variance I'm seeing on this one is about 10-15'c difference so that would tally with a location differential :)

Yep, I'd say that was OK Will..

Headlamp washers fixed. It was the pink relay.

What a place to put it though, in the relay box under the front RH wing. It means wheel off and arch liner down to get at the box :twisted:

I'm sure the designers could have found a better place for the two relays it contains. At least they did in the S2...

I expect the old relay just has the usual problem of dry joints. I've not looked yet as due to the location of it in the car I've taken the easy option and fitted a NOS one I had in stock..

Always worth repairing when you get a chance at some point Jim incase you need a spare in the future :)

Cool I'll not worry too much although the fans are annoying!

Is it possible to just connect the wiring for the dash sensor into the engine sensor or have they possibly done it this way to avoid it yoyo-ing too much?

I'd be very tempted to leave it just as Citroen intended Will.. I would imagine there's a good reason...

I spent many hours tracking down the location of that relay when I owned the car as I had the very same problem and only found it after getting a very good friend to look on Autodata, I wonder where that NOS relay came from :lol:

I was very grateful to have one Richard as it's not a quick job to swap it again so many thanks indeed!

At least can repair the old relay at my leisure now and test it very easily in the V6 where it is very easily accessible in the engine bay fuse box...

Why oh why they never put the relay there in the S1 will always be one of those French mysteries I guess. It was not for lack of room...

:?

Fingers crossed now for the MOT [-o<

Jim knowing you I would be very surprised if any of your cars even got advisories at MOT time other than for things like undertrays or engine covers lol

Excellent Mike and I assume Tapatalk is working as I've not had a chance to test it yet.

The new forum is running under 64 bit CentOS 7 on a fairly well-specced server..

Now to carefully watch and observe..

Let me know of any problems seen...
