Spark plug gap

i’m trying to find out what my spark plug gap should be for a citroen saxo 1.1 v-reg(1999). can anyone help? thanks

Most of the folks here are in the U.S. and they haven’t sold Citroens here since I can’t remember when. Have you tried a Citroen forum?

…or try looking in the Owner’s Manual.

If Citroen issues a decent manual with their cars, it will specify the plug gap, as well as the recommended brand and model of plug.

Or look under the hood.

0,9 mm., no more, no less.

And guess what? 0.9mm = 0.035", the old standby.
