There seems to be two options for changing , partial change uses 3 litres, and then the full change. Full change must be made with "flushing", so it takes longer to do and more expensive. Might want to speak to your service dept. and discuss the message you are getting .

Thanks for your suggestion. Will follow it up with my service mechanic who has the same model Citroen for his personal transport. Will update this thread once a solution is found. Finally, thanks again.
