Citroen gearbox reconditioning kit  Gearbox reconditioning kit (Citroen 2299 45 “Repair Kit”) £239.78 (inc VAT 15%); this includes all seals, cotter/dowel/roll pins and bearings. The biggest costs here are the bearings, so I decided to shop elsewhere for these as Citroen would use a specialist bearing manufacturer. I only bought the small...

Overview The idle regulation stepper motor is mounted on the end of the inlet manifold or on the throttle housing; it is controlled electrically by the ECU. This stepper motor controls an air flow taken in parallel to the throttle with the aim of: • providing an additional air flow (cold starting), • regulating an idle speed as a function of...

Overview The catalytic converter is designed to reduce, by catalysis, unburned pollutant gases at the exhaust: • CO: carbon monoxide • HC: hydrocarbons • NOx: nitrogen oxide Catalysis is a phenomenon which, by using a catalyst, encourages chemical reactions without the catalyst itself being involved in the chemical reaction. As it deals...

The alternator is a very important component of the engine. It's function is to charge the battery whilst the engine is running, meaning that any energy consumed by having the headlights turned on, heater blower running, etc will be put back into the battery whilst you drive.

The coolant temperature sensor has two functions: • it informs the ECU of the coolant temperature in the cooling circuit and therefore the temperature of the engine, • it transmits the coolant temperature information to the temperature gauge on the control panel for non multiplexed vehicles. The ECU uses the coolant temperature...

This sensor is mounted on the exhaust manifold, at the inlet to the catalytic converter and permanently supplies a voltage to the ECU representing the oxygen content of the exhaust gases. It has a green 4 way connector. Two of these four connector pins supply current to the sensor's internal heater. The other two provide a voltage from the sensor...
