    Default Independant Citroen Service Guildford NSW

    Hi all,

    I have relocated from the west back to Sydney. A good few years ago there was an independent Citroen workshop run by an enthusiast who amongst other things changed the timing belt and brakes on my First generation C5.

    I have some suspension problems now with my second generation C5, but I can't remember where exactly his workshop was. Somewhere along or near to Villawood Rd.

    Could any kind soul enlighten me please, if in fact he is still in business.

    Cheers

    I suspect you are looking for Mr Dolan at Citromet, Yennora. I'm not sure if he's still working either.

    Thanks Seasink,

    That might well be it. he had a factory unit with lots of older Citroens in various states of repair. I think it was around 2006 though. If he traded as Citromet I might be able to track him down.
    A search of this site found a post saying he had packed up and gone.

    cheers

    But only in those never-updated business directories. It's not in the phone book.

    I think Tom Dolan has retired. He was last at Yagoona.

    Thanks all.

    Looks like it might need to be a stealer then. Local bloke told me RHSF "shock" had gone. God help me............... Imagine him ringing Citroen and asking for one of them.

    Where are you? There are other options to consider before you empty your account.

    Seven Hills / Castle Hill probably, but Bathurst at the moment. Noisy front wheel bearing being repaired by normal garage novice, but NRMA approved repairer (hence shock diagnosis) to allow me to drive to Melbourne for a few days before starting new job at Seven Hills.

    Hit a large bump - speed hump size with RHSF wheel is like there is no suspension at all. Other 3 wheels normal.
    Car came over from Perth in 3 days from go to whoa like a dream. 6.7l/100km in a 2.7 HDI at the posted speed limit

    Sounds like a new suspension sphere on that side, but it is usual to replace both rather than just the one. Unfortunately it is not as simple to depressurise the hydraulic system on the C5s as earlier cars, so I would suggest a good independent.
    Choice of two in the general area, Penrith & Hornsby from my experience.
    European Autocare , Jamisontown : 0247316522 , Denton Christie .
    Jason Hantos : Hornsby. 0407281269.

    Thanks so much guys.
    New job has company car, so I won't really need mine. Money is short however - no work in the Great Western Sandpit for nearly 7 months................
    this has been a big help!

    Jason Hantos is at Hornsby Heights on the way to the gorge. A very long walk from central Hornsby should you have to.
