Hello,

Thanks for accepting me. I am new to Citroen having just bought a 2006 C3 Exclusive automatic that feels like an airplane cockpit with levers and switches I cannot understand - and it came without a user/workshop manual.

I have already posted my query and already received a few answers. Thank you. A suggestion was made to provide the VIN to aid helpers in identifying my vehicle more precisely than I am capable of, so, here it is. VIN VF7FCNFUC28721840

Very grateful for all and any help and advice to everyone. Thank you.

HI

It is a Citroen C3 facelift (post 2006)

The facelift were made from 2006 to 2009 and appears as the silver grey car in our header banner for the citroen C3 forum.

with a 1.6 i 16v 112 PS (82 kW; 110 hp) (TU5JP4) (NFU) engine

and a 'piloted manual gearbox 5 speed', which is the flappy paddle or sensodrive gearbox.

The sensodrive can have 'flappy paddles' (at the steering wheel) and is a manual gearbox with electronic solenoids for the clutch and gear selection.

Hi Mermaidnwuk.

I hate to be a pest again but now that you have the correct information, please go back and fix up your Bio as soon as possible.

If you need help with your car in the future we can look at your bio and see which car you have and someone with experience on that car can help you.

Welcome. :lol:

P.S. The sensodrive gearbox is very...um...quirky. So if you have some question about it just ask away.
