    Default Reliable source of parts for my BX

    Alas, my BX is off the road with a flat battery. I noticed on my ttrip to Adelaide that the charge light would hang around a while after starting until I gave it some revs so I think the alternator needs attention.

    Seeing as I'll be pulling it to bits anyway I've decided to do the cam belt, water pump and tappets at the same time. I'll not be in any hurry, the job will be spread over however many weekends are required to get the job done properly. I'll be on the lookout for other things to fix/replace as I go. There will probably be a steady stream of posts from me asking 'What does this thing do?'

    What I need is a good supplier of parts who can deliver by courier/mail. They don't have to be the cheapest. So long as the prices are reasonable and I don't get stuffed around I'll be happy.

    The obvious first choice is to call a large Citroen dealer. Any recomendations? They don't have to be in Melbourne. Even overseas is fine for hard to get stuff.

    Thanks, Trevor

    I have dealt with him for years, can't speak highly enough of him and yet to hear a bad ord against him.
    Quick reliable and prices are the best. He can supply new or second hand.
    I'm in Queensland and I have no problems with service or delivery times.
    He's as honest as they come.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Prices for new parts from Caravelle in Melbourne seem pretty keen too.
