    Thoughts on buying a DS23 Auto (2017):
    Potential purchase of a DS 23 1974 Pallas Auto...would appreciate some info.

    Some useful information on the DS power rack:
    Hoogy's DS 23 Pallas

    DS suspension issues, including choppy ride, stuck up and the wire in DS hydraulic pipes:
    2005: DS Ups & Downs
    2013: Stuck: front suspension stuck on high
    DS lost her bounce
    DS height corrector to anti roll bar connection
    DS is leaning to the left

    DS Spheres: DS spheres

    Consider replacing DS 2-piece accumulator spheres and servicing the regulator:
    DS/D Special - failed two piece accumulator sphere

    Dealing with an insurer. Relates to hail damage Sydney Feb 2017.
    Hail damaged C5 potential write off

    PRV Bearings - Durability

    A thread (with linked threads) regarding the brake valve in Xantia, XM, most BX and probably CX post-82"
    Citroen Xantia Brake Control Valve Leak

    Useful C4 threads, some applying to others:
    C4 1.6 HDi - considering purchasing - advice on engine & vehicle in general.
    Bungling Amateurs, C4 HDI injector, please help
    Dealing with a failed DV6 turbo - links to other threads in included in this one:
    Getting to know my new 07 C4 HDi - with your help please


    A long thread that may assist with the AL4, or maybe just provide a lot of reading around the topic ...
    03 Citroen C5 2.0 HDI auto HELP
    That thread relates to an early C5 HDi, but there the material applies to others.

    Another early C5 HDi long thread that ended in a partial rebuild using parts from another AL4 gearbox:
    Update on C5 non starter
    followed by ...
    AL4 converter query
    and the follow on thread re the AL4 C&P. Link to useful manuals in post#12 if not already found elsewhere
    URGENT: Final drive needed 25x68 from 2L HDI AL4

    C4/C5/C6 Eolys variations and refilling:
    Lexia and EOLYS?

    On changing the Al4 fluid. Original pictures were lost. There may be a better guide now.
    Please re-post C5 AL4 transmission refilling guide
