xantia hdi sx spard life quick resto

Post by citroenxm »

1s said else where. As no one even wanted to take her away freely that prehaps a blessing for me in disguise the car will get put to Minimal requirements for an mot get a full Legal mot and sell for what ever she goes for.

had a look over and around and closly this afternoon..

heres what I came up with..

Off side track rod end play - Im sure Ive got one but cheap anyway.
Small hole in rear inner cill drivers side. - You wouldnt even see it! But need to pay it attention.
Tyres.. 2x 205 60x15 are just legal. - Need to find another two
Front caliper bracket for brake hose/abs sensor needed drivers side - Missing for some reason. Got loads im sure.
Poppers for drivers side splash guard for bottom pully - Again just need putting in. The liner is all there.
Passenger arch liner. - Its in the boot just needs fitting.
Air cleaner support bracket needed - Missing for some reason.
Back box - Its also in the boot, just needs putting on
Lhm needs top up - I robbed a load from it when it was on death row
General things in engine bay check and tighten - Like intercooler pipes, electro valves etc
Nuts for electro valves - I also robbed these ages ago, but found some more
that work too...
Pair front spheres - Rears have small movement, but fronts are on
Bounce state so need changing.
ABS light is on unfortunally. Hopefully a front sensor, easyer to change
So there we are, all TINY Things..
Oh, interior wise, radio needs re-fitting, Ill fit an original AND CD Changer back in her too..

Car has 186k on it, and even after it sat for six MONTHS in that cold weather she still started first time!

Runs amazingly, but as we all know on here, this is JUST Run in, and you'd see why I was holding on to her.

Well, back box fitted back on and boot lip plastic cover also refitted..

Some latest pics showing how bad the rusty bits are, but as said, nothing structual from what I can see, just cosmetic

Nearside rear arch:

Im not.. its a quick resto so I can mot and pass on for what ever she will sell for. They had a quick repair about 5 years ago.

they arent structure they are more cosmetic then anything..

who knows with a ful mot if she sells for 150 then so be it..

That should do someone a turn Paul, Northern_Mike's brother is after a cheap car on account of Rattiva II being potentially terminally ill.

If you want to contact Mike it might be best via me at the moment...
