    Now I am beginning to wonder if a dodgy EXC wire was the source of your problem in the first place. Anyway, glad you got it all sorted out.

    Nuts, I thought I had solved it for you...

    I am still concerned it may be wiring, rather than the new alternator. A third dash BVM car should not have the battery mounted starter relay. That...

    I surmise from your description of the yellow light coming on and staying on (even with the key off) is that your car has a BVH transmission and what you have done is to stumble onto the infamous BVH...

    It is actually a function of the physics of the trailing arm suspension. When you stop, the center of gravity of the car is above the contact patch of the tires. This creates a torque moment that...

    If there is really no battery access hatch, then yes you will have to disassemble a fair bit of the RF side. Be especially careful with the brittle plastic bits of the turning/self leveling...

    The bare wire appears to be what happens when the poor quality insulation Citroen used for a while has crumbled completely away. I am guessing that your car is in the 1968-1970 model years, when...

    Farting from the brake pedal is caused by gas in the fluid. Confirm that your brake accumulator has not failed. Rubber gum from a dissolved brake accumulator bladder can cause all sorts of...

    If you are not a slave to originality, 4mm motorcycle bullet connectors like these sold on Amazon come pretty close. You can always use 3/16 rubber tubing and colored shrink tubing to make them look...

    Use a tarnish removing solution to restore the copper bits. Then neutralize the tarnish remover with a weak solution of baking soda in water. You can also use a Dremel with a bit of flappy...

    My understanding is that the bracket for holding the washer fluid bottle under the LH wing is very difficult to source and is unique to IE BVH with air conditioning, so relocating the washer bottle...

    FWIW, here is a more recent installation in a DS23 IE BVH. The factory had to move the air filter and windshield washer to make room for the A/C compressor. None of this is necessary if the...

    Not true. I installed this in my 67DS about 15 years ago. Two belts, no idlers, works a treat. Look carefully at the photograph. The first V belt carries the A/C load and has about 120 degrees of...

    Look closely at the photograph. The rear belt has about 120 degrees of contact with the air conditioning compressor. The front belt has about 90 degrees of contact with the alternator. The front...
