For Sale - estate TD back box

Post by saintjamesy89 »

Hello all, I was going to see if this could be shoe-horned onto my TXD, but I think it'll stick out too far so it's up for grabs. It's a brand new (albeit dented in one place) Walker item, don't want much for it, so first reasonable offer secures it, I can post or bring it to the CXM in September (7+8th).

Also for sale, a genuine Citroen tow bar complete with fixings and scotchblock wiring harness and warning buzzer :lol: it also has the rubber ball cover. It's dirty and has some surface rust, but is very usable and solid. As above, first reasonable offer secures it, also will post at cost/bring to CXM.

PM sent regarding the exhaust section.

EDIT - Looks like you beat me to it while I was typing...I'll let Tom see whether my PM came before your post!

EDIT 2 - If you're in need of the box Matt, you have it. I'm only after it for a spare on the shelf, as the 4 year old box I have on at the moment is still OK.

The tow bar is for a saloon Matt, and as Mat (note number of t's) says, he got his PM in first - but I shall leave up to you Mat(t)s to come to a gentleman's agreement. Then we can talk dosh.

I've already mentioned that an estate one will fit the hatch, you'll just need to reduce the length of the pipe thats sticking out, i've got one on my TXD because the garage ordered the wrong one. I did point out that it shouldn't be sticking out from the bumper as much as a couple of feet, doh!!!

But then the pipe will stick straight out rather than angled down. My understanding is so that the exhaust gasses (and soot) will be directed into the fast moving air under the car rather than the low pressure area behind it, and hence your boot will stay cleaner. The only similar back to back comparison I can think of was on the BXagon where the Green Hornet had a straight rear section, and the rear of that was noticeably sootier than mine after 3k miles over the same roads. I'd guess the difference is less pronounced on a NA diesel though.

I didn't know that that was why the tail pipe points downwards

Hello, the tow bar came free with the TXD, so name your offer - it's just in the way for me really. It's no problem for me to bring it upto the CXM.
