Wouldn't have thought there is a repair kit. Try a car scrappy

Citroen don't show any spares for this, just the complete unit. I'd have thought a scrapper would be the best option, but if you put your VIN up (it will auto hide) we can give the part no / price, and if other engine options are the same unit.

No worries, at least you have the part number, so google that and you should get some results. Having said that be careful of postage costs on some listings, as they can be more than the dealer!

And appears to be only the Dispatch with the ML6C gearbox, so not that much choice of used donors!
