Andrew - How did the scrap men take your estate without you wanting them to? They just turned up and took it?!
Strange about the VSX and Athena badging, why would they try and make the car look cheaper than it is, rather than just saying we're selling cheap to get rid of old stock? It's funny that we think the OKV series of cars were registered by Citroen UK, it's the same story with my Activa, with reg EKV, KV being Coventry. Seems such a shame that Citroen (presumably) struggled to sell so many good Xantias.
I'm fairly sure that apart from the anti sink and accumulator spheres, the hydraulic system is in good nick, even with the electrovalves off there is still a decent amount of movement in each corner, much like my Activa with new spheres.
In other news I've silicone sealed the scuttle, which has stopped the passenger footwell getting wet So thanks for the advice on that one folks.
I'm afraid it might be sold, I don't want to though as it's a very good car, much better condition and less abused than this VSX . Ideally I'd stick a 2.1TD in the Activa and use that as a commuter car, but I havn't really got the time.Citroenmad wrote:That looks to be a tidy Xantia TD, a good buy. So your Activa is going the journey soon?
A quick question about the new car however. I've noticed that the back box is wet, with what looks like LHM on it. And when you look further you can see that LHM has dribbled on the plastic that runs along the bottom of the car, holding the metal LHM pipes in place (if that makes any sense??) The rear electrovalve is dry as a bone, so I'm not sure what could be causing the leak? Any thoughts?
I'm off to the scrapyard in a bit to acquire some parts for the car, need an indicator side repeater, tailgate seal, possibly a door seal, a parcel shelf, and some C pillar covers as mine have a hole in for some reason! If anyone else has any of these parts could you let me know as my scrapyard is pretty greedy and seems to take the p**s with prices sometimes!
Cheers for reading, I'll give an update when I can.
