Hi there,,, the end of the engine oil dipstick (all plastic) has brocken off and there appears to be two part numbers for a replacement

1174.85
and
1174.E7 RP ( replaced by ?) 1174.G3

car is a 2003 C3 1.4HDI 8v

local dealer isnt too sure on the difference and they dont have either in stock to check.

Any ideas team ?

cheers

The 2 part numbers refer to 2 different length dipsticks. The longer one is for the extended service engine?

1174.85 is 488/502 long (possibly length in millimetres) and labelled "MAINTENANCE 20 000KM"

where as the 1174 E7 / RP 1174 G3 is 452/488 long and marked "MAINTENANCE 30 000KM"


You can find both 1174.G3 and 1174.85 new on ebay quite cheaply.


This is the dip stick from a 16v HDi engine:

Not sure why there should be two part numbers seemingly dependant on the service interval as I thought the service interval for 1.4HDI 8v was fixed at 20000KM (12000 miles).
I found both on ebay but I thought best to check as whose to say that some previous owner in the distant past hadnt swapped the dipstick to the wrong one (apparantly the plastic is prone to becoming brittle and breaking).

Anyways the 1174.85 looks like the option for me ,

Asante Sana
