Xantia aerobics

Post by froggy »

Hi, my S2 Xantia, just doing a bit of Citroen Aerobics. the back of the car refuses to go from the lowest setting into the middle. it will go from the lowest straight to the highest quite happily. wondering why it doesnt like going from low to middle , only on the back, front is fine. many thanks in advance Terry. :?

Probably the plastic "dog bone" has come off the rear height corrector, maybe the linkage is also seized.

IF (not sure from your post) it goes all the way up from low and only goes to "drive" height after being at the "service height" then I would suspect a sticking/dirty/rusting pivot height corrector
