but if that fails, who's Chris? Is he on here?


She! Malcom was a regular on here with a huge collection of Citroen parts, Chris is his widow, she's been steadily selling off his collection since he died.

Chris is the late and lamented Malcolm Goldberger's daughter.
Malcolm was "Citronut" and Chris is "Citronut Junior".
Most of Chris' posts are dealing with the disposal of Malcolm's stock.

Apparently a couple of clips are winging their way to me now, thanks to Rob Moss @ Chevronics, so Mods, thread can be closed,

Both now fitted. Plus a useful tip:
It's very awkward to fit these properly into the CV joint ao a bit of a ponder was needed; if you get a thin strip of thin metal (I used a scrap tube of a garden light), wrap it round the fitted clip and use a tie-wrap to compress the clip so it fits the splines, the CV joint can be gently tapped on until the clip is heard to go into its groove on the joint; then just pull the tie-wrap and piece of metal off and bin it.
