    Just used this thread to get our 2002 C5 (stuck in park!) mobile, thanks for the pictures and explanations etc.

    Only problem was when I tried to order the replacement guide pin part #240778 ... the part did not exist!

    Turns out until now the dealer has been replacing the whole gearchange mechanism @$900, as per parts guide as they did not know about the guide pin part #0000240778 @$13.50 The key was the leading zeros on the part number (must be 10 digits). The dealer parts data does not describe the part #0000240778 as a gearbox guide pin, but at the price they were happy to order it in just in case! As I was collecting my $13.50 part they were deciding to order one in for stock.

    Want to send a great big thank you for the question and the brilliant instructions. I'm a 50-something woman and this happened to my beautiful C5 this week and my car was set to be towed away, and god knows how much it was all going to cost. Then I did a bit of googling and found this! Phew! Thank you!

    I got the spare part for just $17 (the Citroen spare parts guy reckons that they keep these parts in stock because it's a common problem!) and I managed to replace it and get it all back together again. Only problem was the rubber blind that didn't want to go back in position and so it's gone and cracked and split. I'm going to have a go at sticking it together with duct tape and see if that works. I'd be interested to hear opinions on whether it's okay to do without it.

    Great info. My car, C5 HDI 2003 195000 Km - I found this tread after I had diagnosed the problem to its source and found it was the Detent Pin where the plastic part on the bottom where it is it is locked was broken. Now to locate a replacement but during the disassembly the black gear trim cover (part that keeps the dust out) because of age had disintegrated. So will need to see if I can also locate one of these. Also in the process of replacing the 4 Spheres. Looks like the UK is the place to source these from. Again, tx for your very informative, detailed info. Regards, JM (Sydney) NSW

    Hi Guys,

    I have a spare new solenoid for Series 1 & 2 C5's, and as we no longer have those models in our fleet, Happy to sell it to anyone in need.

    I've needed to replace the solenoid on both our previous Series 1 & 2 cars.

    Our X7 has the Shift Relay problem, and I have a new one to fit, but I'm yet to find where its located, but I have it on good authority that it's between the BSI and the firewall. Isn't it great that Citroen make these things so accessible? They don't seem to have learnt anything since the CX?

    Best regards,

    Greg

    That detent pin is best bought via the part number 240778 from a dealer. See post 27 above.
    In Sydney, Trivett's Parts division and Continental Cars (now an independent specialist) would be most likely to have it on the shelf.

    The part that I am trying to locate is the Rubber that is fitted around the SILVER GEAR COVER.
    Be careful when removing this as it may break apart due to aging.
