hello. Just going to have the spark plugs changed on my C6 3.0 petrol and was wondering what the spark plug gaps should be? I have tried Google and owners manual without luck. Cheers

Do you know which plugs are fitted?
There's a good chance they'll be pre-set multi electrode plugs which give a high mileage (75k+) service interval.

Hmm, lets see what (junk) they send you
If you ordered the bosch ones you should be okay.
Post a pic of what you get and we'll give a recommendation..

hi MGMike..in fact, ECP sent 5 of one type and 1 of another. In the meantime, Citroen (Palmers Group) kindly sent me a diagram of the engine with part numbers. Original part number RP5960-G0 (now discontinued) and Bosch FR8SPP332. I have ordered the latter from Ebay
cheers

Got the spark plugs. I understand the inlet manifold has to be replaced to change 3 of the spark plugs, necessitating renewal of the gaskets. Does anyone know the part numbers for the gaskets that I will require?
thanks
