Yikes, I've never had much good luck with French cars either. Still like the old XUD 1.9 diesel engine from 90s though. For a diesel estate the 405 had some go, the ZX wasn't bad either.
Shame the rest of the car wasn't up to much, strangely the clutch went on my Citroen too Undecided

Fingers crossed it's a cheap one Cool
