Like the rest of you, I used to keep quite a stockpile of various oddments from my many visits to the scrap yards, sadly alot of the scrapyards down here now offer a removal service, so you cannot actually get the part off by yourself (helping yourself to a few pocket fillers at the same time). There was a time where I never needed to pay for any bulbs as I had a tin full of them!!, same with fuses, I have a small tub full of them.

Mind you this is not helped by the fact that Citroen BX's are rare as hens teeth in the scrapyards down here - the odd Xantia crops up and 2 of the better scrapyards have my number in case a BX comes in - I still phone up regularly, just in case they forget to phone.......

After being made redundant again I actually considered starting up a French 2nd hand parts service, looked into renting a small industrial unit and everything - missus didn't want me blowing a large chunk of my settlement on 'cars' though - women, what do they know - this time next year I could have been a millionaire!!.

Having previously owned a Pug 505 family estate I soon founf out that alot of electrical parts were common to the BX, had problems with the central locking, so found a readily available stock of spare parts. Mind you this was a number of years ago.

Thank you all for your help anyway.

Vaxed the seats and carpets on the TRS, first time in 20 years! I emptied 20 litres of filthy water out of it, and there still grubby! :?
