You don,t say if the clicking is when moving the wheel or not , when does it occur ?.
I also have a 1997 Xantia td 1.9 with a hdx engine and no power.
After many hours spent under the bonnet , reading these pages and the
manual I have come to the conclusion that this lack of power has been put there by Citroen. Even though the block is the same as a 405 D8A
it has only a fraction of the power, and also uses more fuel.
To make it go properly would require the removal of the ECU and the CAT and the addition of a high pressure turbo and an injector pump
from an earlier non ecu car.
Too much trouble I know, just have to suffer it and not make the same mistake again.

mAY SOUND A SILLY QUESTION BUT ARE YOUR CARS DEFINATELY TD MODELS AND NOT SD MODELS A LOWER PRESSURE TURBO.
