Finding the colorcode of a Citroën, DS, Peugeot

Looking for a color code can take you a while if you don't know where to start. To order used body parts, a color code is an important factor. This manual contains a number of useful hints to facilitate the color code search.

Color code on A Pillar or B Pillar

For many of the current models, the color code can be found on a label on the A Pillar of the car. By opening the driver's door all the way, you can find this usually white sticker. Then you have to look for the color code at the bottom of the label, usually 3 or 4 letters. This is the case, for example, with the Peugeot 307.

You can also look for the color code on the B Pillar on the driver's side, this place is also widely used. For example with the Peugeot 206. Here too, the code is usually displayed with 3 or 4 letters.

An exception to this are the Peugeot 107 and the Citroën C1, here the sticker is low on the B, but on the passenger side.

More examples A Pillar: Peugeot 407 Sw & Citroën C2, C3, C4, C4 Picasso, C5, C6, Xsara, Xsara Picasso and Berlingo up to 2003.
More examples B Pillar: Peugeot 407 coupe, 607 & Citroën Verlingo, C3 Picasso, DS3 and C3 Pluriel.

Color code on the door

On the door on the driver's side you can also look for the color code Peugeot or Citroen, this is still a frequently used location. An example of this is the Peugeot 207. Here too, the code is usually displayed with 3 or 4 letters on a sticker on the inside of the door.
Other examples: Citroën Jumpy and the Citroën C8.

Color code in the engine compartment

With the now somewhat older models such as the Citroën Xantia or the Peugeot 306, you have to look for the Peugeot or Citroën color code in the engine compartment. To do this, simply open the hood and look at the body around the struts or on the bulkhead (body part between the engine and the dashboard). You will then see a paint code in 3 or 4 letters, but this is now painted separately on the paint in a different color.

Color code Citroën Xsara Picasso

The first models of the Citroën Xsara Picasso  were an exception to the above. Here the color code was placed on the back of a flap in the dashboard. So if you can't find the color code on the door jamb of your Xsara Picasso, this is most likely where to look.

Specify color code when ordering used parts

By stating the required color code in your request for a body part, our employees can assist you quickly. Also in our online parts stock, the color number is usually stated in the description, so that you can see for yourself whether there is a direct match for a door, bonnet, tailgate, front screen, rear screen, front bumper, rear bumper or exterior mirror. 

Finally, some examples of Peugeot Citroën color codes:
EYC = Gris Quartz (grey)
ETS = Gris Cendre (grey)
EZR = Gris Aluminium (grey)
EWP = Blanc Banquise (white)
EGE = Blue de Chine (blue)
EGJ = Blue Santorin (blue)
KPK = Blue Mauritius (blue)
KNC = Blue Amiral (blue)
KPU = Blue Oriental (blue)
EKQ = Rouge Lucifer (red)
EKB = Rouge Vallelunga (red)
EXY = Noir Onyx (black)

From the color code it is not only possible to determine the color, but also whether it concerns a unicolour, a metallic or a mother-of-pearl paint.

Color code on the website

If you look up a part on the website, you will see a color code for each part (where the color is important). Below you can see exactly where that is:
