Citroen C3: Advice on care and maintenance / General recommendations

Observe the following recommendations to avoid damaging your vehicle.

Exterior

Citroen C3. General recommendations Never use a high-pressure jet wash in the engine compartment, due to the risk of damaging electrical components.

Do not wash the vehicle in strong sunshine or extremely cold conditions.

Citroen C3. General recommendations When washing the vehicle at an automatic roller-brush car wash, be sure to lock the doors and, depending on version, remove the electronic key and deactivate the “hands-free” function (“Hands-Free Tailgate Access”).

When using a pressure washer, hold the lance at least 30 cm from the vehicle (particularly when cleaning areas containing chipped paint, sensors or seals).

Promptly clean up any stains containing chemicals liable to damage the vehicle's paint (including tree resin, bird droppings, insect secretions, pollen and tar).

If justified by the environment, clean the vehicle more frequently to remove salty deposits (in coastal areas), soot (in industrial estates) and mud (in wet or cold areas).

These substances can be highly corrosive.

Contact a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop if you require advice on removing stubborn stains requiring special products (such as tar or insect removers).

Preferably, have paint touch-ups performed by a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.

Interior

Citroen C3. General recommendations When washing the vehicle, never use a water hose or high-pressure washer to clean the interior.

Liquids carried in cups or other open containers can spill, presenting a risk of damage if they come into contact with the controls in the dashboard and centre console.

Take care!
