Xantia V6 plug change

Post by superloopy »

Anyone know the part number of the inlet manifold gaskets which are recommended to be changed alongside plugs?

I've looked on service.citroen but am not that savvy with the V6 side of things.

Thanks

Now why couldn't i ind that?

But ... surely i need 2, one for each bank?

That part number only shows 1, could it be part number 13 which does show a quantity of 2?

Guessing i'll need to take it apart to see but would rather have the parts to hand if poss.

You only need one (see it has 6 holes), but they sell them in packs of 2....
It would not hurt to have some spares, in case Citroen stop selling them in the near future.

\\\\\\as above

part 13 (2) is for the inlet stubs2head inlets...you do not unbolt these for the plug change.
