Re: citroen xantia starter motor problems



Probably starter motor. A problem on Xantias is the earth strap from the
battery to the engine. It's bolted onto the gearbox housing. Make sure it's
tight.

Please help....I have a citroen Xantia turbo diesel, which up untill
now has never had a problem.

Over the last couple of days whilst trying to start, instead of the
engine turning over it just clicks.... after trying a few more times it
eventually fires up. However it's taking more and more attemps each
time. Can any one tell me what might be the problem? Is it the starter
motor??

many thanks
Charly
