    Brian,

    I have bought most of my SM spares from L'atelier and service has been good. They automatically give you the ex GST price.

    Check out what else they have - lots of interesting bits but lots missing too.

    LHM front dust cover - from sept. 66 - L'Atelier 524

    Cheers,

    Ken W

    beware... the rear boots for SM are the DS Safari boots not the sedan

    you can get the sedan boots to fit but you will be doing a lot of cussing

    i got mine from Blondeau

    Julien is the son of Jean Blondeau the boss

    emails in English are fine and he replies quickly in perfect english

    his english much better than my french

    pay by credit card

    parcel here within a week

    always well packed and carefully sealed

    Parts books shows a 35mm rear cylinder for DS sedan and SM, but 40mm cylinder for Break. Has someone fitted Break rear cylinders to your SM jonf? Or was there a change during production sometime? It looks like the parts books specifies the same rear boot an cylinder for SM and DS sedan. They are still listed by the factory for some reason.

    p.s. I suppose the outlay might have alternatively bought a decent doorknob for the kids???

    Genuine Citroën boots for a sedan will work on a break. I've done it.
