Sorry to resurrect an old thread but while draining the auto box the other day I noticed both strut returns were wet besides being done for the mot last year. Maybe they used GSF ones? I see Chevronics have started supplying these along with quite a few other Bx parts. No idea of prices though.

They're about £14 from your local dealer - mine even had them on the shelf last time I went there!

Yep, my experience too... consensus is that GSF ones are pointless - our local dealer had them and / or could order them quickly.. Worth getting a couple of spare metal clips too in case you're not able to reuse the old ones...

:o Well, if you want to pay over the odds with a £7.80 delivery charge. :shock:

A quick detour past the Cit dealer wont cost anything like that in fuel, unless living in the wilds somewhere. :wink:

Will pop to dealer soon. The new nearest one to us won't even know what a Bx is so won't waste my time with them.

That is certainly an expensive postage charge and wasn't that much when I ordered my pair, it would however still be worth it to me rather than spend an hour of my time going to the dealer.
