The engine code is within the letters in the VIN. As an example our C5 starts VF7RE4HTH and the engine code is 4HT. You should be able to use the VIN though when buying parts.

To get the right Citroen part numbers you should use your VIN in the parts diagrams. These can be seen as a free service if you register on service.citroen as an other professional non emergency services and as a member of the Citroen Owners Club http://service.citro...angerParametres You might need to select your language first. Once on the site use your VIN (VIS) top left to find your car.

I tried accessing service.citroen but I need to find how to change the language. I'll have a go at that tomorrow.

Change the language in a box bottom right. Once on the site, put in your VIN (VIS) top left and on the left side look under characteristics (these are specific to your vehicle) and it will probably give you the engine code.

One other place to look will be on the engine block. If you can find the engine number there may be others there which give the code. Have a look on the block, probably at the front corner under the cylinder head nearest the gearbox. It will not be EW since that refers to petrol engines.

We had a 2005 Picasso with the 2.0 hdi 90 bhp engine and in the VIN it had RHY and that was a DW10TD with I think a single camshaft., so probably similar to the RHV one.
