I'll guess maybe not then ;) Thought the warranty was 6-7years on them though you see so even if just out of warranty i would be giving Citroen UK a gentle call to see what they would do for their flagship model car as its plainly a manufacturing defect unless its been hit??

:oops: :oops: Sorry Will, I thought you were talking about the ZX..........

The problem with the corrosion warranty is that it has to be checked at some point, I think, around the 3 year mark, but judging by the service manual, it hasn't!! therefore I suspect that Citroen UK will just laugh at me, especially given that I'm the 3rd owner and can't prove the check was done.

I'm going to put it in the hands of my bodywork guy, Oz, who did the front bumper and door for me, it needs to go in for a bit of lacquer to touched up, so 2 birds with one stone, etc....

Fingers crossed its not too bad then and hopefully he can find out whats caused it and if a design issue maybe warn others but I'd still get pics and stuff taken by him iff possible and let Cit look themselves and then see if they will offer anything back as GWG as there are much older cars with lots less rust not needing to be checked about the roads with chevrons on the front ;)

Well, this is turning into quite a busy month, I travelled down to the D Rally last weekend (seems longer than that) and throughly enjoyed myself, despite a bad attack of hayfever. More about the rally in the column (Note to self...... start writing). :roll:

Just before the rally we found out that an Uncle of Sarah's had passed away suddenly, so on Thursday we're off down to Bristol for the Funeral, There and back in the day, This thing is just a 'mile muncher' :wink: so another good long drive. And, of course, the National is coming up in under a fortnight.

The plan for the ZX is still there (don't worry Mark :wink: ) just a bit on the back burner at the moment what with one thing and another. I got the insurance quote the other day to find, yes, you've guessed it, it's gone up :roll: ...... but having said that, once I'd checked, by a massive amount of £3. So, no I won't be sat filling in digital forms or making endless phone calls. For the sake of £3 I can't be A..... err.... bothered.

Sarah and I had a discussion the other night about what the car needs money wise, to put it back into pristine condition, and to be honest there's quite a few things, but all 'odds and sods'. Wheels needs refurbing, type pressure sensor, humidity control sensor, tyres, bit of body work and a couple of bits of lacquer need attention. My biggest problem, like most people is time, I haven't got any!! 8-[ 8-[

To say that I'm absolutely 'bouncing' would be an understatement, came home from work yesterday, parked the car on the drive and thought nothing more about the car, SWMBO and I went shopping and took her little 'go kart' as it wanted fueling, backing off the drive I noticed the front of mine, and there's a scrape along the front bumper, where some toe rag has obviuosly been to close and thought nothing of scaring my car. :evil: :evil: :evil:

I doesn't look to bad, but given that I've not so long had the front bumper resprayed, I'm livid. I'm going to have a proper look this afternoon, when I get back home. I'm hoping I can T-Cut the scrape out, if not, I may be calling on the services of the 'The VINCEmeister' the sort it.......

pictures to follow.............

I've thought about something like that but not sure if it would work when I'm parked up. I've asked for a download of the CCTV and reported it to the police on the off chance there's something to see, hopefully it can be back tracker by the CCTV guys and a reg number pulled, but we will see......

Just off out to take a couple of pics for posting later
