    Complex bundles of multi-tube and multi-diameter hydraulic return hoses from suspension, steering, pressure relief etc for Citroens like CX, BX, Xantia. They last for years and years and then start failing and aren't too amenable to patching. The BX ones are suddenly hard to get.

    Cheers

    Thanks for that and I'll call him. Mark Dyson has been looking for one for a while for a customer too, so it seems that sources have suddenly started drying up.

    Our Peugeot 306 is back from the panel beaters - Precision Panel and Paint have done their usual excellent job. How's the CX coming on?

    Cheers

    Citroen Andre still has some, and here are details from Andre:

    Part Number Description Quantity Price excl. VAT Price incl. VAT Total incl.
    VAT Selection
    # 2 - 96030258 OIL BACK HARNES 46.72 GBP 54.90 GBP 54.90 GBP # 1- 95603421 OIL BACK HARNES 76.14 GBP 89.46 GBP 89.46 GBP

    Both still available. For reference see picture (=BX ORGA <-05167)


    As far as I can work out, these are late model BX petrol with power steering octopuses.

    Every other direction I went gave NLA.

    Back to you..................................
