Just to clarify :

The 242 mm cluth for the massive ML5T gearbox is hydraulic operatede.
Seriously doubt that a petit mademoiselle could operate it any other way than hydraulic :wink:
To be beyond sure, i looked on my own, and on Servicebox via. the VIN, and this is the only option. It's factory installed.

The final drive and bellhousing is diffrent between the XU10J2TE and ES9J4 engine, and the hydraulic unit (slave and master) is also diffrent, but i guess that since the clutch itself is a smaller 230 vs. 242 mm. from the ES9J4, some variations are needed.

Happy Holidays :)

I stand corrected. :)

I had always thought that hydraulic clutch was used only with the TCT. Thanks for clearing that up.

It is my first s2 Activa, 6 or 7th s2 though after various estates and the
currently comatose V6 24v Xant! :(

Activa is a V reg and just passed 88,888miles but not the most recent
purchase though - latest Activa a week ago is another s1. :oops: :roll:

Nope not my Audi - mate's car. My old and now long gone TD VSX s1
sinker sat on trailer in the background and IIRC another very early L
plated VSX 2.0i auto pictured in the distance fitted with sequential LPG
injection and donut tank - lovely blue/grey ETW.

Wow! That must be around 8 Activas you have now? Fantastic. 8)

Are both the recent Activas road going?

I cant imagine how difficult it must be to chose a car to use each day, i have enough trouble :lol:

The recent s2 is OK but has a very raspy manifold so 'hostilities' will begin
shortly to make it a daily driver - I really am NOT looking forward to it
and don't have plansd to remove the engine. The other latest arrival
is due an imminent MOT and will receive a new rear silenser and new
full front brakes tomorrow:

The black slightly poorly A6TVA is still on the road all legal and driveable but
I mustn't get it above 1800rpm for fear of the bottom crank going AWOL so
it sits beside the V6 that's taken into it's head not to work randomly. So,
looks like two into daily use and two off. I've still got 3 Xm's (2x 2.0i's one
a turbo, and a 24v v6) and finally when I want to be sensible, a Xantia TD
estate. Then I wonder why there's always an empty wallet!! :roll: :lol:

If the manifold itself has gone, you wont be able to get turbo/manifold out without removing the engine, unless of course you can tip the lump forward significantly...?

The body is very straight - just bumpers have suffered! Recent
rad/rams and clutch too! But the roof was the deal clincher for me.
It's largely been a one family (fanatical Citroen!) owned car since
40k miles and shared a paddock with a Ds, Sm and briefly a C6!!
It is a great one to drive and the only one with adjustable side
bolsters ON BOTH front seats! :?

Seems I do too - unintentionally! :roll: There are x3 KPK blue one's now!
And I thought I liked the red best! Or maybe the green... :lol:

Sounds like a good one, bumpers are a small thing to put right, eaiser when they are colour coded on the Activas, not so with the black ones on Xms.

Adjustable side bolsters?

The bumper abrasions are quite bad in some places - one corner measures
about 4" diameter and looks like bike fairing plastics after a spill!

Citroenmad wrote:Adjustable side bolsters?

Take no notice of me - I'm talking total bollocks! Seems all the first series1
Activae do indeed have the very same thing and it's actually the s2 one
I've been driving lately that doesn't...

I think I am really losing the plot although in mitigation the adjustment on
my black A6TVA's seats was stiff and didn't seem to work very well until I
gave it a bit of 'provocation' so I've never had it adjusted right since I
bought it! :lol: :oops: :roll:

As you were everyone!

Well, for my money, KPK (Mauritius Blue) is the next best colour for any Xantia after KJA Rouge D'Enfer (Dantes' Red) but then I'm biassed!

I do like the dark green as well..

Not sure if this should go to the gallery, but on this vid you can see my V6 Activa being chased by a BX Sport (and a damn good driver) at Kemora race track, starting at about 3:55.
