Note I put "p/x"
The rarity of tailblazers is a bit of a running joke on here so you probably copped some unfair flak there ( sorry :D ). I recently found a brand new, boxed one on Leboncoin and nearly had a heart attack when I saw it - cost me 150 quid too! :( But if you're happy to have one with one or two cracks in it (but complete) then 40 or 50 quid is a reasonable price (so swapping one for a set of wheels and tyres wouldn't be that unreasonable really) They do come up occasionally - I think Todd had one going recently - but you might have to do a bit of digging and be patient. Once you have one fitted, opening and closing the boot of your car becomes a kind of neurotic hell as they crack if you look at them funny. Hope that helps - and good luck. :D

After market wind deflectors for the windows are still readily available, try your local factors, don't think the sunroof ones are though. I personally think tailblazers look hideous and tacky1

sunroof deflector, citroen but not bx specific

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CITROEN-UNIVE ... 3c9c74ffba" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

or you could measure the hole and see if something like this would fit as it looks more age appropriate ( contact vendor for dimensions )


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-su ... 481wt_1398" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I have it on good authority ( having measured the one on top of my wardrobe),

that to fit a bx the outer bracket holes centres are 89 cm apart and the overall width of the sunroof deflector is 96cm , don't forget bx's also have a centre hole and bracket

Ye- :D can get the "Climair" deflectors new - just thought I'd like the "citroen" marked ones if there're any out there.
As for the tail blazer (I like them :lol: )- will keep on looking - unless someone has one "in their shed".
Thanks =D>

Andy - sorry but I must beg to differ ! Surely the person with "first dibs" is me as I actually put the post on the forum ? (and - we're not in the classroom.)
Or do we have to be "in" with people ? :(
It's looking that way - sorry just a comment of a newcomer.
How to scare new members off - take the p*ss and criticise their requests in a cliquey manner. :?
Malcolm or anyone - if you have a tailblazer - please pm me with a price. :D
If you want to start a bidding war , fine , I won't be looking at this thread anymore - I have other things to do with my time . =D>
