Hello Dave, Thank you for your reply to my inquiry :

Listings for C6 Accessory belt are confusing :

What is the source of your listing ?

Original OEM Citro├źn part# may be 5750XC.

Lengths for accessory belt for C6 2.7L vary: 1885, 1887, 1890 and your suggestion 1888mm.

In your opinion, will all of these serpentine belts fit?
1888mm is not available here in the USA, but 1885mm is.

All of those will fit!
The tensioner has more than enough movement to cope with 5mm total difference in the initial length of the two extremes listed above.

Thank you Mike.
Is replacing the belt a messy job?
Directions on how to do this from you would be helpful : downloads has factory directions which seem lacking in explanation .

The factory directions are perfect!

You'll need a suitable pin to hold the tensioner in the removal position. You'll also need to remove the engine air intake pipe which is a PITA and don't use an electric ratchet on the tensioner as it'll jam against the chassis rail. Ask me how I know

TBH, unless it's slipping, I would leave it until you need to do the timing belts.
