Octopus wanted for Meteor

Post by peterwight » Tue Sep 25, 2018 1:29 pm

Please search your unwanted kit for this multi~limbed junction box/return valve in the BX hydraulic sysrem. My Meteor has sprung a leak, and I'm effectively off the road. I don't know if they're all the same (please advise) but the Meteor is a 1.9 non-turbo diesel. Thanks in advance. Peter Also at 07580 805727

You can get new repro ones from Chevronics I believe.

Dear Defender, just the news I needed. Chevronics can supply, although I'll have to wait a few weeks for their next batch (of 2 hundred). Members please note; you need to ring them. I'd have given up had I relied on the website. By the way, that wing mirror I bought from you on-spec came in handy soon afterwards. Thank you. PW

I thought they had been N/A for a few years at Citroen hence Chevronics having them reproduced?
