You mean Octopus? Are you planning to use an old one? Better you bought new, false economy not to do so as the rubber will be old and therefore likely to perish. These are still available from Citroen. There are differences between power and non power steering i believe.

Since changing an octopus is really a tricky task, only new one is a propper solution. There is a difference between power steering and non-power steeting octopus.

Power steering (part No. 96 030 258):

Unless it's actually an arachnid, that's taken up residence in his shed. :)
