"soft" engine cover on 2.0 HDi: How to remove?

Post by Paul73 »

Hi

Basic question but I dont want to break it.... How does that soft cover come off on the 2.0 HDi in a C4 grand spacetourer? It appears to have three (or more) rubber ovals that look like they should be rotated...

All help gratefully received :-)

If they're the same as earlier ones they just pull off, but they can be tricky to remove as they sort of close up as you try to pull them off.

Hi Paul73.
If its similar to the engine cover on a Citroen DS4 2.0HDi (2011) then it does just pull up from the mounts.
A bit of careful vertical tugging is necessary, to just ease out the locating pegs, ..... so steady as she goes. It is quite tight but flexible so it shouldn't crack or break.
Have done it numerous times when I had my DS without any issues.
