This one's for sale on Leboncoin at the minute for 30 euros, but I suspect postage might make it at least double that!

Hi Kev, do you have the link to that advert please? I have a friend that goes over to France quite often, could be worth checking on the remote chance that he can arrange something for me.

Incidentally, I see that the type that bolts on to the towing eye is still available new
http://www.just-tow.co.uk/towbars/citro ... owbar.html not sure I like the idea of relying purely on the towing eye fixings tho............ [-X

Can't see the one I was refering to, but there are plenty more, like this one:

If you search for 'attelage bx' you'll come up with plenty - crochet d'attelage in French literally means towing hook.

My OE one (circa 1988) is slightly different with only one take off for the lighting socket. It has the curved tubes going right forward to the attachment. However it is similar in allowing the spare wheel to be deployed.
