Citroen C3 Tyre pressure

Post by kubby »

Hi,

I am struggling to find the correct tyre pressure for my 2011 Citroen C3 VTi 1.6 Auto.

My tyre size is 185/65R15. I can provide the VIN # if you need that.

There is no label on the car. The manual says to check the label on the car. :?

Different websites provide different tyre pressure for my tyre size (185/65R15).

What is the best way to get the correct information?

Thanks,
Kubby

185/65R15 T88:

Front: 2 BAR / 29 PSI
Rear: 2.1 BAR / 30 PSI

If you ring the dealer and quote your VIN, they'll be able to order you up a new label. In the UK they cost £12 including our VAT at 20%.

No worries, when you get the new label, make absolutely sure the area is spotlessly clean and free from grease before sticking it on. I’d also photo copy it and keep it safe just in case! 😄

I only say that as the same thing happened on one of our cars - missing tyre label and the new one also 'disappeared' some time later!

Might I also suggest you clean the area (that you want to stick the label) with isopropanol alcohol, and then wait ten minutes before applying the label. IPA should get the area clean, and waiting then allows it to evaporate completely (and not affect the glue of the label).
