    The best way is to choose your vehicle (upper left area), which is quite specific as it makes you pick the engine version. Then you can ask it to display all parts for that vehicle/model combo. It's a bit like going down a rabbit hole at times and not always 100% correct, but it 's fairly reliable. They've changed the layout a few times and I think it's a little harder to get a list of parts now than it was, but once you have set the vehicle, you should be able to pick an option for the sort of parts you are interested in. After you do that the first time, you should also see a dropdown listbox near the top left that allows you to pick other areas of the car you want to look at listed alphabetically.

    If you were chasing, say, disc rotors and they do not have any, the option for brake discs won't show. Pad will be under a separate page. I think they do this because they may have half a dozen brands to show. Also, be aware that they may not show all brands by default, so you look down the left side and see if there are other brands they can show.

    What are you chasing and for which of your cars?

    David, I can pick make, but not model and of course therefore not engine type. The model option fails to appear. Dodgy site?

    Timing kits for which car?

    It works OK for me at www.micksgarage.com
    Assuming C5X7, after picking Citroen you should see:

    Micks Garage-mg_citmodels2.jpg C5>> Micks Garage-mg_citc5s.jpg X7>> Micks Garage-mg_citc5_x7.jpg

    Pick the engine type in the last dropdown list.

    Also works for me for Peugeot 205, for parts that they carry.

    I see "1" for make, so I press that and select Citroen, and then go to the "2" for model and nothing happens.

    Try a different browser, the site works fine for me using Chrome. . .

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Some websites indeed only work with some browsers.
    I keep a few handy in case this happens.

    I avoid Google based ones cos the tracking is somewhat evil.

    I'm using Firefox, Opera, Safari ... and I use DuckDuckGo for searches also coz (allegedly) they don't track you.
    Once upon a time:


    Many R4s (incl. fourgonnette), R5LS, R16TS.


    GS 1015, 1220, sedans and wagons.
    CX 2200, 2400.
    ID 1966, 1969, DS21H, DSpecial, DS23 Pallas.
    C5 2002, 2004 petrol and diesel.
    D Special 1974
    Xantia Activa 1998 (look out Gulargambone)
    GS 5 speed sedan (what a tale)
    1986 2CV6
    CX25GTi 1985 auto
    CX2500 IE Pallas 1985 auto
    DS23EFI 1975 Pallas

    And now:

    C5 2.2 HDI 2005 wagon
    DS23 1973 Pallas

    At least Chrome don't need/use/ cooperate with Java (unless you add the ATO plugin)

    Firefox and opera always seem to have the Java plugin installed.
