WANTED - N/S Front Caliper

Post by Vanny » Tue Nov 01, 2005 12:25 am

hmmm, think i know what i did to fubar the caliper! Ooops, might need the Citroen tool 228-T to fix it (around page 280 of the old haynes should give it away!), and while it doesnt look to hard to overcome, think i'll just get a replacement, any offers??


Need it in liverpool/cheshire preferably without the caliper frame bit.

Citroen tool 228-T ? Would that be the one for compressing the spring washers?

If so, then you can overcome the problem with a sturdy vice and a screwdriver......as I found when I stupidly removed the cross-bar on a front caliper.
Relying on two wheels and musclepower since the last BX (or any car) had to go.

thats the one, stupidly removed the cross member, shoved everything back together!


can probably fix it, but im rapidly running out of parts if i screw it up again!



However i did by the pentagon socket for £3 so that speeds things up!

How soon do you need it Vanny? I`ll almost certainly have one though probably not for 2-3 weeks.

I may have one. I know I have several but all the same side, dont know which side :oops: trouble is they're burried deep in the garage, thats why I haven't responded before, I figured by the time I'd dug it out you'd have probably got one. Theres one in a local scrappies, probably get it for a tenner, let me know.
