Plastic nut thingumys

Post by Pogo »

Does anyone know if you can still buy the black plastic nuts that hold the lining each side of the boot?
I would be willing to try with Citroen if I could find a part number for them.
Or is their an alternative way to hold the trim on, something I could use instead?

I need a set of these too, I have just the one present! Perhaps the best way would be to procure some from a BX that is being broken.

Typical, Malcolm Lockwood had a load of these available, i think i've got some in my spares stash somewhere, not sure on price as i suspect they've probably appreciated in value since i purchased them. I can have a look to see how many i've got, how many do you both need?

That would be great, I will have to check how many, but I think 4 probably, black if possible, but I would be happy with any colour.

I have some of these spare, but they never seem to work as intended anyway.

I was going to invent something better, but there is always something more important or interesting to do on the car.

Would putting a rawplug through the hole allow it then to be screwed onto the boot thread? It'll obviously have to be cut down to size so that it fits flush with everything.

I bought two packets of these from malcolm lockwood at wetherby, it might be worth trying him to see if he has any more.
I can give you the part number tomorrow (they're in work).
