I bodged my filler neck back together as even the best spare I had was a bit crap, and bugger me if I didn't just find a brand new one in a box of bits I've had for years, even got the later flap thing so ONLY a unleaded nozzle can go down it!

Part number: 96 127 564

It's the whole assembly!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Any Citroen diagrams available for TD air intake bits and bobs, more specifically the rubber/plastic pipe bit that is usually knackered and therefore bodged with tape etc?

Better with a 1.9 16v engine though. :) But yes, they are fun little cars. Even my girlfriend's 954cc 205 was fun although it didn't like hills very much.

Hugely envious of your sterling efforts. Well dons so far!

I think that you are in need of number 11: 1423C2 £19.48 and maybe 13 1425N8 £2.70. Both prices plus the Vodka and Tonic.
Cheers Jon, luckily it seems to be #13 I need, now to find a dealer with it in stock :? No doubt a stupid question but what does #35 represent?

Looking forward to seeing your beast (valver that is :wink: ) as it looked pretty hopeless when I saw it several months ago, following your blog with interest.

Can't you see from the diagram? :wink: It's a three-pronged pointy thing...

Either that or it refers to the 3 pipes as a unit?

Good work on the BX Jon, it is inspiring me to get mine sorted!

Could 13 be 3 x clips??

Either that or it's 1/3 of an octopus.....

Indeed though, Jon's car looks bloody ok, or at least it did the week before last, so it can only look better now!

Does that mean the end of the Bling? :twisted:

Good work that man.

I'm getting lackofpictureitis here!

Erm, what colour bumper trims do you need?

Red, chrome or black? I might be able to find some.
Cant really help on the bumper fornt though, the only non Phase 2 16v bumpers I have are all pretty FUBAR'd, but I will have a ganders in case theres something half decent lurking in the big shed of shite...

I'll try and pop over soon in my valver, might even lend a hand if the shoulder recovers a bit...
