Jim hun
in completely :? :? :? :? now

as the part No. on the kit i have comes back in an all family search as to only fit

"1 document(s) found for C1"

doing the same search with the part No. for the front bumper that comes up on your chassis/VIN No. it also comes up with

"1 document(s) found for C1"

although looking at the image for each type ( C1 and C1 (B4) the actual lamp's in the kit i have match the C1 (B4),

so in the words of

we have a c c c c c conundrum

You're a better man than me Malc, I couldn't find any trace of it on service.citroen.... That must be for a MK1 C1 though, and service.citroen lists the same part number for all Mk1s I think.... :?

Confused? Service.citroen certainly appears to be....

The lights you have Malc must be a for a MK1 - the B4 will be the current version, which is different on the front end.

So, there are 2 front ends on the Mk1 - the one shown on your box with the small ellipse shaped pockets under the bumper insert, and one with larger squares, which I believe Jim has. The front end shown on the box appears on the bumper page as 'RANGE ACTIVITY' from the RP date on the box (11711). There is a blanking plate shown for Jim's type with a hole in for a fog light - but if you look under fog lights, they are only listed for the RANGE ACTIVITY - but the pics given there are of a sloped, handed, type which doesn't align with what you have in the box, and the inset pic of the car shows the type with the square bumper inserts. So, take your guess as to what they will fit :rofl2:

If I search on your part number it comes up under corresponding parts, but if I click on the link I just get an error page....

although these fogs are Citroen, my pug dealer tells me he puts items on a list after they have been on the shelf for one year, them moves them up the list till they have been there 5 years, then he flogs them of as insurance wright off,

he also recons ( although i have been told since ) that PSA in there wisdom allocate new part No.s to items and dont leave a trace of the old No.,
so if/when he looks a part up for a car/customer or the workshop he doesn't realise he has the item on the shelf/in stock, so orders it in under the new number,

although this is different to what my Citroen dealer tells me, he says PSA make it clear on of the old number against the new one

I saw this in the other place, and it was so obvious I didn't even bother asking if I was right :)

EDIT: That was after I'd had to do a double-take to check it wasn't a clever photoshop of yours wearing both those plates...

Mike, I'm not clever enough to even open Pgotoshop much less do clever things with it....

Gosh, seems I can't even spell it :roll: :lol:

Anyway, thinking about it, I'd have thought you'd use that other Photo-editing software that's free with Linux, that I'm not going to type the name of, because it'll get Malcolm going again :rofl2:
