Why are there no Haynes manuals for the recent citroen cars?
And what do people use for looking up torque values for nuts an bolts?

Not many do. No
Have you tried contacting Citroen and asking where these values are published?

I was in citroen today, they say they get them direct from their own online technical systems that only citroen can access.

It's probably a volume thing. Apparently Porsche sell more cars than Citroen do in Australia so without a market, why produce a product.
That said I purchased a 'soft' copy of the factory manual which runs within a virtual machine.
Let me know what specific data your looking for and I'll try to find it.

I need to change the front shocks, so the torque for the shock to hub bolts, and arb links would be useful. And I'll probably just change the rear when at it, so rear shock bolt torques. Thanks.
where did you get the soft copymanual?

It's odd as there are a lot of citroen in Europe, about a third of the cars in france are citroen, I'd even settle for a "le haynes" version, numbers are numbers.

Thanks a lot, saved in case of problems.
Just to double check, is "pivot" the citroen name for the hub carrier?
