Depends where you are Alan, you need to find a trusted specialist and be prepared to travel, I take my cars to either Bourne or Hitchin, both of which are 90 mins away from me but its worth it.

..that_ Main Cit Dealers now have limited knowledge of the BX as so much time has passed since cessation (20+ years).
You would be much better served by an independent who was trained in that era and carries the expertise forward.

..that_ I'm not even sure a modern Citroen main dealer would know what a BX was still less how to actually repair one?

They certainly wouldn't want to repair one!
