Check of level of transmission oil (model with RKPP)

On some models the otpuskaniye of a jellied/control stopper of a case of RKPP is made by means of a special prutkovy key of square section. Similar keys always it is possible to get in firm Citroёn company service centers.


1. Park the car on an equal horizontal platform, whenever possible with a firm covering. Check of level of transmission oil should be made before the trip first in the present day, or not less than 5 minutes later after engine switching off. If to make check right after a car stop, the part of oil will appear distributed on surfaces of internal components of a transmission and for accuracy of measurement it will be impossible to be charged.
2. Release fixing clamps and uncover access a loker of an arch of the left forward wheel. At the corresponding complete set it is necessary to remove also protection of a case.

3. Carefully wipe a jellied/control stopper and a surface of a case of RKPP adjoining to it.

4. Turn out a stopper, wipe it and replace a sealing washer.

5. Level of oil should reach the bottom cut of a jellied/control opening. A small amount of liquid usually accumulates under a stopper and follows at extraction of the last from an opening that at all is not a sign of correctness of filling of a box. For check of level wait the terminations of its effluence, then start to fill in through an opening the fresh. Continue liquid filling until it will not start to follow too much openings. It is possible to consider level of liquid given to norm when the effluence of its surplus will stop. Use for correction of level only transmission liquid of a demanded grade (see. Specifications).

6. Transmission filling with transmission oil is among enough troublesome procedures. Besides the other it is necessary to remember that oil distribution on internal cavities of RKPP occurs to a certain temporary delay that it is necessary to consider at intermediate checks of level. Having finished correction of level of oil, make on the car a short trip during which oil should be distributed finally in a transmission. Then muffle the engine and repeat check.
7. Remember that check of level of transmission oil should be made on the car established in strictly horizontal situation. Prepare suitable drain capacity for collecting following surplus.
8. Having finished correction of level of oil, replace a sealing washer and tighten a stopper with demanded effort. Carefully collect the spilled oil, then establish into place an access cover, having reliably fixed it clamps.
