Location of coolant system breathers

Post by EJAP »

Hello.

2.0 HDi 2008 Citroen C5 (X7)

Just about to drain the coolant prior to new CB and water pump but can someone confirm the locations of the breathers for when I refill with antifreeze?

Thank you.

Joe.

Joe, pop up the VIN of this C5, as on the MK II (depending on engine) there were several modifications to the coolant system - specifically the coolant housing.

This is for a MK III (X7) not a 2007 MK II - have you given me the right VIN?

I've done a guide on this here in the resources section here for the DW10BTED4 engine on the X7:
