  • Which relay is the starter motor relay to the Xsara 1.6?
    David CURSON

  • May have a Citroen XI Picasso 1.6 HDI 2009 none of these fuse boxes look even close to what my fuse box looks like underneath the driver side I’m looking for a fuse to control the heater blower as I’ve changed the resistor and nothing works at all
