Can anyone help with the location of the windscreen washer fuse in a 2006 1400cc C3SX 5 door hatch. I'm hoping that replacing the fuse will cure my problem but as I do not have a manual I do not know what fuse to change.

Welcome to the Citroen C3 forum Mikeandjudith

If you have a first generation shape Citroen C3, then the fuse box you should be looking at is under the bonnet (the BSM):

Where to find the fuse boxes on a Citroen C3 are in this topic (click here).

and check fuses:
F7 20A Headlamp washer
F14 10A Windscreen wash pump - Front
F17 30A Windscreen wipers - Front

All the engine fuses for 2002-2006 are here (click)


Later generation C3 (post 2006) fuse for the wipers will be under the bonnet again (the BSM)

Check fuses:
F12 30A Wipers
F3 10A Screen wash

It's always worth have a pack of spare fuses in the car, you can get a full kit of the most used sizes for the C3 from Amazon (click here) for the kit.

Thanks for the information regarding which fuses to check, however, as I do not have a manual I do not know which number fuse is which. I really need a picture identifying the fuse numbers.

I am rather surprised that the numbers are not embossed in the moulding (like the previous version car) or embossed in the underside of the lid.

I have uploaded a layout diagram of the citroen C3 fuse box in the engine bay for late model cars here:



Hope this is enough help. You never said what problem you are getting with your wipers?
Good Luck
