Front flexible brake hoses

Hi good BX people, I have been sharing my story about getting my great BX16V back on the road - done a couple of thousand miles now and enjoying every minute. My mechanic (all I can do is drive - I can't fix...) tells me that my front flexi brake hoses urgently need to be replaced - but he says that...

Re: Who's on the road (or could be), who is Not?

Hi Guys, I have enjoyed owning and driving my white 1990 16v G441AKX ever since I bought it in August 1995 for £ 3250. It was the family car for many happy years and shared the garage with my 65 Lotus Cortina. I bought a new VX220 in 2003 and sadly could not afford to keep the 16v on the road due to...

Hello Mike,

That sounds great, this was going to be a spare for me to keep for future use so if it does get collected no worries, but if not, you know that it will have a good home with me and be reserved for Citroen use.

I will await your news in due course...

Cheers,

Pete

Air inlet pipe

:lol: Big thanks to you all for your thoughts on my problem, it has led to me getting a solid pipe from Jez which should last a bit better than the flexible type which I have been using - and which seem to disintegrate after a few years.

Cheers, Pete

Hi Vanny, thanks for your advice, I did have some air intake trunking from other cars laying around, but the end that fits over the radiator bracket was quite a complex shape and hard to fit in the space available - hence asking what other people thought about it. I will try my local Citroen dealer ...

Air intake pipe from back of radiator to air filter

Hi everyone, just washing and checking over my daily driven 16valver when I realised that my air intake pipe behind the radiator has disintegrated. Anybody got a new one for sale or know where I can get one ? Cheers - Pete

:twisted: Hi Tobbe, I wasn't sure about posting a reply on U Tube as you asked but I really enjoyed the clip. Don't our cars make a great noise ! maybe a bit less music and a bit more engine would have been good for me. I have had my 16v since 1995 and used to see 7200 in 5th now and then, but with ...

Exhaust for 1990 16v

I am interested in replacing the exhaust on my 1990 car which is still in daily use. It has been "noisy" for a couple of years now and keeps amazing me by passing it's MOT without comment. As this is our sensible family car I would be interested in buying any new or good quality second hand exhaust ...

quality speakers to go in rear c pillar

I am looking for some reasonable quality speakers to fit in the rear c pillar mounts without any alteration. I have an Alpine head unit but my original speakers have given up the struggle and shredded - I think Alpine used to offer "custom fit" speakers many years ago that replaced odd sized o/e stu...

I live in the Preston area and would be happy to pay a good price if I could get one of these quickly - anybody got a good one sat clean and ready to be collected/posted. Of course I have c...

Hi Mechuccio, sounds like a good plan - you are always very welcome to call in if you are passing. I run a pubmeet for petrolheads on the last Wednesday night of every month so that would be a good time to be here. I run a Lotus Cortina and a VX220 (and my wife a Smart) as well as the Citroen - we h...
