Citroen DS3 ac compressor

Post by vroomscot »


Quick question folks as I am travelling a few hours to do a job for a family member tomorrow. Replacing the AC Compressor on a 2012 DS3 1.6 HDI.

Is there room to get the compressor out without taking the bumper off if I jack the vehicle up and remove the drivers wheel?

Assuming it’s Etorx bolts x 3 holding compressor in and probably an Etorx bit for the pipes?

Also, is the tensioner for the belt a 17mm?

Not wanting to leave any tools that I need.
