Xantia Bump Stops

Post by peter306 »

Hello again.
I've read the previous posts but they are a tad dated. :lol:
My bump stops are just about gone, just the black bits left, anyone know where I can get some or if there is an alternative.

I had this problem about a year ago. I bought a bump stop for a c5 mark1. It's entirely soft rubber (no black plastic section like on a Xantia.) I was able to cut it across with a kitchen knife at a suitable point and then fit it into the black plastic section.

Peter, it may be worth having a word with one of the specialist Activa Groups on Facebook. I'm aware they're having quite a lot of stuff remanufactured and this may apply to bump stops, knowing how they are now failing.

Activa ones are the same ;)

Hello again
Xantianonstarter, I found a post that did show c5 ones getting converted so I've got 2 on order, should work then.
Jim, as above, would they let a lowly 1.8LX owner onto such an august site :lol:

Hello, got the c5 stops, cut a lip round the top and chopped the centre piece, bit of washing up liquid and they are now fitted with the plastic support, another job done, possibly the heater matrix when it's warmer, oh joy

That is how the Activa chaps do it.....OR....alter Estate bump stops which is what I did.
