    Citroens usually have high bite point (from my personal experience)

    I had the older style C1 55 plate and the biting point was hardly non existent. You had to rev its b******s off to get it going, otherwise it'd stall. It used to wind me up how rough it sounded.

    My daughter has a Peugeot 107 which is basically the same and her clutch has always been high and the clutch is about a year old as we have receipts but the previous owner said it was always like that so maybe yeah...

    I had a 2010 Citroen C1 it did have a very high bite point, whenever my dad took it for a drive i noticed he revved it loads. I think it just takes time to get used to it.

    Our C1 (58 plate) developed a highish biting point over the 5 years we owned it. I adjusted it using the method shown in several videos on Youtube and brought it right back down.

    garage54 on youtube, fitted a door opener to their clutch, so that when you released the pedal, the door opener slowly let the clutch out, genius.

    My daughter has a 2010 C1 and the clutch was replaced about a year or so ago (there's an uprated 190mm clutch from the original 180mm that had problems, maybe yours still has this). Clutch bite is way down almost to a point where just barely lifting your foot will engage it.

    EDIT - just noted the thread is over 4 years old! (edited)

    Clutch bite points can be adjusted, but I find I just adapt and get used to it.
