Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

Unfortunately this work can only be done by a Citroen workshop.

If the car hadn't been moved, it would be enough to vacuum the container.

But since you drove, the water was distributed all over the system. To open it you have to depressurize it. This can only be done with a Citroen workshop computer. Then you can flush the pipes. Afterwards the system must be ventilated again via the computer.

Maybe you will have problems with the vehicle forever, because the sludge which forms with oil in connection with water is deposited in the dampers and valves that you never get out again, unless you exchange the whole system. But this is much too expensive.

I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
