New BX owner!

Post by roughfactory »

Picked up my first BX today!

1989 1.9D

Looking forward to getting to know the car and no doubt spending money on it 😉

First job - alternator

Had lights and wipers around 10 miles from home and felt like the car lost quite a bit of it's power.

Turned lights and wipers off and car got its grunt back.

Welcome! That's a well known car, that's been passed around a bit as of late and, started to look at little tired, we also have a busy Facebook page, finding a drivers seat may be doable,
Lots of Motors, mostly semi broken....

Hi Tim,

Ye I thought as much through doing some research on the car.
I can gladly say it's in safe hands now, I will be looking after him definitely (car was named Claude apparently)

I suspect it has a tired alternator, oil leak (still trying to find the source) and boot struts are knackered.

It's a shame though because it's service history is probably one of the most dedicated and complete I have ever seen. Literally invoices documents and forum stuff all very neatly presented in a folder.

It's my first BX and usually I'm Volkswagen through and through. I am now playing catch-up as I've never been remotely interested in Citroen but, I absolutely love the BX !
