Hi all, trying to locate a suitable radiator for above. Chassis VF7XBXB0059XB. Would have to be sent via carrier due to current restrictions.

I have a good s/h rad from a gti8v, not sure it fits 16's, I know it fits variants of 19/19d plus others
I'm sure someone else will know fitments to answer this.

Check out Mister Auto as well.
Usually a good choice of makes there, including Nissens.
The site accepts original part numbers as well, so have that handy. If unsure, post your full VIN number, and we can look it up for you.
Mister Auto is owned by PSA.

Is it? I thought their A/M division was Eurorepar?

Mister Auto is a division of PSA (ultimately Stellantis, now) specialising in the on-line 'sales of detachable parts' for PSA vehicles. There's a Wikipedia.fr page about them: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister-Auto.

Do post your full VIN, if you'd like the Citroen part number, which will allow an accurate Mister Auto search, among other places.

The 1.6 petrol manual had a smaller radiator than diesel and 1.9 petrol but one could be fitted I guess.

Ebays always worth a try as is the Facebook group

The range of radiators fitted to BX was/is lengthy.
Cit parts lump all these together (even for your VIN there is more than one listed), but my best find was
95 495 038 22dm² LAR600
for 1580cc with A/C (which yours is listed as having; it is also listed as a Millesime).

On Mister Auto, 95495038 throws up these two as replacements:
Nissens 61660, listed as 600mm
NRF 58683, listed as 600x378x34mm
Both, unfortunately showing Out of Stock on MA UK, although MA.es show 3 NRFs available.

If you need more help, can you post a photo of your existing rad (particularly to show the top of it and filler) and check dimensions of it?

BX 16 didn’t have a/c fitted unless it was a Mk1
