3. Enter a Subject: for your Question. Make it relevant and precise. This will become the title that visitors see first.
Choose a relevant Subject
Choose a relevant Subject
(e.g. 'Help !!' is a poor choice of a subject,


'Will not start but goes click click when I turn the key' is a good choice if this is what your C3 does)

Do not add 'Citroen C3...' to your title, they are all Citroen C3 problems around here 8-)

If you fail to follow these instructions you may find your post is delayed in processing due to overloading the work for the moderators.

4. Add detail to the Question in the 'Message body:' area.
Add detail to your Question by adding text to the Message body: area

Good detail will include a list of work already attempted, more detail of the problem including when, where or how often the problem arises.

If you think a picture would help explain, please add them to the question. CLICK HERE to Read the topic on 'How to attach images to the forum'.

Please note that there is a policy of 'one question per topic'. If you fail to follow this policy you may find your posts are edited, delayed or rejected depending on the workload of the moderation team at the time.

5a. If you want to see what your new question will look like (without making it permanent), press the 'Preview' button to see a preview of your question.
