Car was serviced today and cost me a few quid! Oil leak suspected from the gearbox, but when I explained that Richmond Citroen of Portsmouth (name and shame), had replaced a crankcase seal in June and I doubt very much whether they would have bothered to clean up residual oil. They might even have spilled more during the refilling of the box, such is my confidence in their abilities. I paid to have the oil cleaned up with a view to returning in a couple of hundred miles to see if it was spillage or a leak. If it is a leak, it will have to go back to Richmond,
, for a re repair.
West heath Citroen Garage also found turbo pipes had been wrongly refitted at some point and were rubbing against an engine cover locating peg. Fortunately, it hasn't rubbed right through and should be OK. Paid to have them re-routed as specified in the book.
Lower front suspension wishbone bushes cracked (rear) which he said must have been like that when I bought the car. Apparently they don't change bushes now, just the whole arms. Cost? £538.
. So total cost around £280 for today's little adventure.
I've kept the best to last though.
I now have Sat Nav firmware version 2.86 B1, Loaded from Citroen supplied CD no problem. The service manager gave me the CD and said as far as he knew, it was ordered for the Nav system without needing a code. I have my doubts that it would work in any other car though. Now all I have to do is save up my pennies for the new maps. I have noticed that Citroens map download site no longer advertises UK maps as stand alone download for £61. They are now lumped in with "Europe maps" at over £120 (I think). When I've paid the credit card bill, I will investigate further.
