Richard if you just want the pouch you can do what I did & thats to go to a camping shop & buy a camel back pouch the kind you put in a back pack filled with water, I did this with mine & I put a piece on here of what I did if you do a search for it, the Citroen pouch holds 2.4 ltrs & is shaped so I bought a 2.5 ltr pouch & only put 2 ltrs in so it would fit in the holding tank, it was easy to take the connectors off the old pouch & transfer them to the camel pack & it was only about £10.

That's a brilliant idea! Thanks very much, I'll give it a go.

It needs Lexia or Diagbox, both specialist Citroen software.

Is there a specific version for Citroen?
OR can someone recommend a link to one that it good for them?

Diagbox replaced Lexia. I suggest buying from someone in the UK in case you need support.

Thanks Trev, the bag worked a treat! I'm guessing the car will know there is fluid in it now and turn off the warning message?

Again, no! You need to use diagbox to tell the car that the fluid has been replenished.

is diagbox different to lexia or are they part of the same package?

Just a thought, the cars clever enough to know when the fluid bag is empty but not when its full! Not so clever C4!

It doesn't know the bag is empty, it just gives the warning after x number of fuel cap openings, and the assumption is that the fluid has been used since it squirts in a tiny amount each time.

Diagbox replaced Lexia.

Lexia was the Citroen diagnostic software, Peugeot Planet 2000 was the Pug version. Diagbox combined them with an updated interface & covers newer cars

OK guys, thanks to some great advice I have succesfully replaced the additive bag. While I was at it, I treated myself to Diagbox/Lexia which I have now installed. I tried it but can't find the option to clear the 'low additive' warning message. Any ideas?

Thanks
