Free Xantia spheres anyone?

Post by Baldbazza » Sun Aug 06, 2006 3:08 pm

Found some Xantia spheres that I never got around to fitting whilst clearing out the garage. Can anyone here make use of them before I put them on eBay?

They're 'new' but I bought them a long long time ago from Andyspares (yes, that old!). Haven't a clue if they're still usable.

Code XA 50 FH, dated 02-10-97; white box, can't see a brand name.

According to the table at http://www.wien-vienna.at/images3/KATAL ... N_2005.pdf they fit Xantia front hydractive 2.0i (to 10/93) and 1.9 Turbo D (to 05/95).

Yours if you can use them for the cost of postage (3.5kg), or collection from Eastleigh, Hampshire.

To test the spheres - simply screw them on the front of the BX - then jerk the BX a couple times.
If they have lost pressure - you will instantly feel it ...

Not sure - but would think they give even the heavy BX variants a harsh ride on front.
