What are these?

Post by saintjamesy89 » Wed Mar 06, 2019 9:53 am

Hi everyone, i'm listing some bits from a box of random (supposedly) MK1 parts I bought off of Leboncoin, does anyone knopw what the following bits are?

Looks like it could have originated from within the dashboard. Part number (9561135080) doesn't bring any matches up from the internedt or service citroen.

Possibly something to do with radiator fan switches? Originally thought it could be headlight loom, but the two four pin ends are too close together. Otherwise no clue! Looks new though.

The connectors in the bottom pic look like halogen H4 bulb ones. The smaller white connectors could be for side lights.
Edit:
Oops just read your comment on the loom :oops:

I'd guess it's all part of a towing pack?

The black box looks like it plugs into the rear lamp loom and the wiring could be for dual fans?

Maybe...

The smaller one looks like it forms part of the connection in the o/s rear light. The larger resembles the wiring in the grill area that connects to the fan and temp switch, similar colours and connectors within the cable shield. Perhaps for dual fans as mentioned above.
Prefer it to the Lamborghini, like Signor Gandini!

Thanks folks, on the facebook page it has been suggested the black box is either a Digit or CX series 2 bulb-out detector, that does indeed plug into the rear lights.

Hope the loom is for dual fans! As part of the a/c ocnversion on my GT i'll need twin cooling fans - what luck!
