Wanted - Citroen BX tzi 1992 dash

Post by pdl1989 »

My dash (behind the steering wheel, above the screen) was shattered by a mechanic who tried to remove it. Looking for a new one, or failing that some sort of dash cover. Any help would be great

Hi, and welcome. That's a "mechanic" you won't be using again, I guess! :shock:
Are you after the large sweeping dash top, or just the curved instrument pod/surround?
Grey or black?

Thanks for the quick responses. To be honest I’m not that savvy when it comes to technical terms. The front dash is also cracked but at the moment I’m just looking for the part up behind the wheel. Here’s a photo of it. You can see it’s been taped up.

Funnily enough I am taking it back to the mechanic to get him to fix some of the other things he screwed up. When I got it back the remote locking had stopped working. Thing is I’m in Australia and every mechanic I’ve taken it to has sent it back without change or charge. They don’t want to know about it. Seems a difficult car to work on over here.

Anyway if the photos help this is the part I’m currently chasing. Thanks again

OK, that's awful, but don't despair.
Someone here will be able to help with the part, I'm sure, and advice on properly removing/fitting it.

On the matter of a BX in Australia, try this...

Call up "Citroen origins" on google...
https://www.citroenorigins.co.uk/en
Click on the BX image
> Discover
> Gallery - Your Citroen
> Explore the map
Find Australia

There you find 3 BX's whose owners have added theirs
2 in Melbourne
1 'just up the road' (I think) in Brisbane

Have chats, a beer or two, support...

There is the famous Aussiefrogs forum too. But I see that is closing down next year so be quick!
The Joy of BX with just one Citroën BX to my name now. Will I sing Bye Bye to my GTI or will it be Till death us do part.
