The 'FDV' is the 'Block/item' in the middle of the image (Below) painted Green :wink:

The /\ image taken from THIS thread for ref. where you can see more of the internal bits !

Also read thro' THIS thread for more info, However the 'OP' images have gone though :(

('Mat F' , I wonder if 'cauchoiskev' has accidently deleted them from his 'Image-shack' account) ?

Without them it makes the thread harder to dechipher :(

Thanks for that it seems this must be the part I have one in my
spares dept. Its to do with the pas which is heavy due to some
mechanic pinching lhm pipe they drained fluid all ok but the
steering being heavy thinking this must be the part restricting
the flow being blocked up with muck don't know.

If they've drained the fluid are they sure they've properly bled the system when refilling?

Second that, and maybe bleed the brakes through so that the FDV near the back of the front subframe gets any air out. Normally not a problem if just emptying the reservoir, but if you take any hard pipes out, it seems worth doing. Usually I've had to bleed the front brakes anyway, ie flexys, front subframe (hard pipes changed) replacement so not noticed massive problem, only an airlock somewhere which resolved with enough playing with suspension height and releasing the pressure regulator screw. So worth a little more tinkering. Also the accumulator sphere definitely affects brakes and steering pressure so ensure it is at good pressure or replace.

You really need to get the car booked in with a garage that is conversant with citroens hydropneumatic system. There are a number of good citroen independent garages across the country but it's very difficult to give a recommendation as you do not list your location in your profile. If you update your profile or post where you are I am sure someone will be along soon to give a good recommendation of the most local specialist to you. :)
