Wanted, Front Brake discs & other

Post by hvanman »

Hi, I am slowly getting to grips with my new BX 19RD, although I seem to find more challenges at every visit....

I have a bit of an initial list of parts I need to try and get it through an MOT and also generally improve her and have just purchased new track rods, belts, filters and brake pads, but....

The front discs are pretty rough, so before heading into eBay I thought I should check here...


Less important parts needed include:-

A rear washer bottle as mine has split.

A light grey glove box lid as the hinge has broken.


Cheers, Simon

The brake discs are readily available from your lolcal factor, buying discs on ebay is problamatic because of the weight hence high postage costs.

Simon, whereabouts are you located? That might help in club members possibly being able to offer you some of these parts if they are localish to you.

You should be able to find front discs for around £20 the pair, i'd be surprised if local factors can match e-bay prices even taking into account the postage. Again, brake pads should be available for under £10, off e-bay rather than motor factors, but who knows, you might find somewhere local to you that comes in a bit cheaper if they are wanting to get rid of old stock. My last pair of discs were citroen oem & inc postage cost me £20. I think i got lucky with the pads & they cost me £6 inclusive of postage :D

I don't agree with you Kevan !

A pair for £17.90 (BIN) on E-BAY delivered to your front door, it will save you the time/fuel driving to your motor factors, also a pair of REAR discs for £13.25 (BIN) if anyone needs a set (Very reasonable IMHO) :wink:

:lol:

Those listings are a bit misleading, the front is just for a single disc, so its a bit priicey in my book, the rears don't look right to me. Whats that different colured corrugated pattern on them?? Never had rears with that on, so its either a picture of the wrong one's, or they aren't for the bx?

Anyway's, i agree with you Richard, theres plenty of cheap discs front & rear & pads which i don't think a local factors can touch on price. I'll stand corrected of course if a local factors near to a club member has some cheap deals going.

Matt you may/may-not be correct as I did look for a pair as it does state
E-Bay seller wrote:Citroen BX Pair of Front Brake Disc #4884
But then in the general description it does state "Here we have a brand new Front Brake Disc for the following ....." so if it's not for a pair the seller is crafty being ambiguous (But you could always call them first 01732 810224 , before buying/committing to a purchase) !

So if the above, is only for one ? go for a safe bet with the GSF listing at £13.80 each with free delivery !

Hi simon,
I have just checked my spares stock and I do have one available complete with a working pump !
However as both front and rear washer bottles are of an identical moulding (other than which side the pump is mounted) I need to choose/select the correct one for you, PM sent !

:D

My local factor is a real "old school" joint, but have often beaten the internet for things like batterys, so I might give them a try, but the best deal I found on eBay was for a pair sub £18, which is not bad going...

In that case to prove my point; my local factor in Manchester sells them for a tenner a pair but doesn't do mail order or delivery! :wink: :lol:
