    Default C5 To good to wreck

    Newest car to be wrecked. This ones a 2007 model Series 2 c5 hdi. It's the 2 liter 6 speed auto. Engine and gearbox perform very well. Reason for wrecking is it needs a power steering pump. With citroens ridiculous prices and the lack of availability of second hand ones has made this car un economical to repair.

    The gross dealer pricing could be worse - think Subaru or some German makes. I worry that he GST stuff-up will make simple importing of things like this impossible.

    If it was mine it would have a PSP from another vehicle fitted.

    Or the the existing pump investigated at least. There are motor rewinders able to be found.

    Better still there is a pump currently on ebay Australia

    Someone has overlooked the obvious it would seem.

    It came from one of Melbournes leading French car specialists and he went down the path of second hand verses new or rebuildable. Basically did everything he could to convince the owner not to sell it but when people get there mind set that it's time for a new car no one can stop them.

    We sell them cheaper than that ($330) so us and the repairer did everything we could.

    I guess in a consumers mind a 2007 vehicle can be considered quite old.
    And there are, of course, owners to adverse spending any money on an old car.

    I daresay the "french car specialist's" labor would add a considerable amount to the bill.

    Wouldn't it be financially worthwhile for you to fit a pump and sell it as goer ?

    If it was detailed it would look a million dollars. Warranty requirements should be minimal on a car that age.

    There's no warranty on our cars, we sell cheap, as traded, No RWC, No Reg. Problem is C5's are worth more in parts to us so we'd rather wreck it.

    If someone did want it as is we'd let it go for $1000 and they can find or fix there own pump.

    I'm sure you could replace the pump for about $250 aud with the pump delivered to your doorstep!
