    Default Citroen DS 20 - Spacers?

    Hi Guys,

    I found these two brackets or spacers in the boot of my car. Can anyone identify where they belong? They are about 3cm x 2cm in size


    Thx

    Damn Budge , do you think I could work it out? haha - took me hours without any luck. The previous owner must have removed them as they were lying in a tub in the boot. Thanks again bud.

    Badabec obviously had the same plan as me with the image from the parts diagram and got there a few seconds sooner. The parts book suggests that there is only a single spacer (rather than a pair) and does not give a selection of sizes for this. Sometimes Citroen offered a part in several thicknesses so that you could chose or combine to get the thickness you wanted/ needed. That doesn't seem to be the case with this 'vanilla' spacer - one size fits all.

    Agreed. My other (wrong) guess was that they were part of the little brackets that hold the top lip of the wing to the boot gutter. Now I've got to go and dig those out to see what they actually look like.....

    Yes Budge, my first thought was also that they spacers for the wing gutter brackets , seeing i had the 2 spacers - but my gutter brackets were not removed. So kudus to Badabec</p>
