Thanks for these, have you tried pressing the
F5 lexia
F5 lexia
F5 button to see what lexia has to say about each fault?

Sometimes is a 'computer says no', but sometimes it comes up with some useful information.


Looks like faulty injector. You can get them reconditioned, after they have been tested, click here for injector reconditioning (delpi). Or new, but they are not cheap.

I did have a quick try on there, but it started asking about connecting measuring tools. I guess that's something the dealer would have?
I'm a bit of a biff with mechanicals and don't have tools or a garage to work in, so I've contacted a local diesel specialist to take a look at testing injector 4.
See how that goes :shock:

Update: 28/3/15

Injector 4 has been replaced. Smoke free, clatter free and performing well, no new fault codes :D
£200 worse off (including labour) :cry:
That said, thanks to members advice and Lexia, it could have cost me a lot more. Citroen dealer wanted £96 just to read the fault codes....

Thanks all!
