C5 - X7 - 2.2 HDI - service schedule?

Post by 2cvandy »

Sad news this Christmas, after 10 years faithful service, my 2002 C5 estate was fatally injured in a fire.
As a result of which, I've bought a C5 Tourer. Originally a French model so LHD, I bought it in UK as that's where the old one died, so currently going through the process of re-registering it here in France.
It's a 2012 2.2HDI Exclusive Automatic, a bit "techy" for my tastes, but it's growing on me.
I'm sure there'll be questions as we get to know each other, but let's start with the basics;-
The owners handbook doesn't give any service info but does say "refer to the service booklet" - anybody got one for sale?
In the meantime, I'm going to assume that it's not that different to the 2002 2.0HDI ;-
Oil & filter change - 20.000km ?
Change fuel filter & Pollen filter - 40,000km ?
Change Air filter - 60,000km ?
Cam belt - 150,000km ?
I've always used Total oil in the previous C5's engine, as recommended in the Citroen handbook, is Total still Citroen's recommendation? What grade? Synthetic or mineral? Capacity?
Also, it states in the handbook "the automatic gearbox does not require any maintenance (no oil change)" - really?
TIA for any info,

I'll need the VIN of the new vehicle to give you accurate details of the specific servicing times for the main components outside of standard interim and major services.

PSA say no, every other make that uses the same box says Yes. Change it, not sure which box you have, I have an AM6 in my 407, but either way it's more to protect the electro-vannes than anything else. Oil type/spec is very important.

PSA say it's sealed for life, but that's really not the case. It should be changed say every 40k miles or so, but as you can't drain it totally, about a third of the oil remains in the torque converter, so generally needs 3 changes to get to a near complete change as you can.

The oil counter then needs resetting in Diagbox afterwards.
