I had a good look and was stumped.

I tried cheating a bit with google translate.
Now I think its a tool for testing spheres without removing them.
How it does that is beyond me.

So I found a thread on club_xm which explained.
It's a Testing and control kit for on vehicle sphere and battery pressure rating, made by BEM Muller.
Still no idea how it works though.

Would 'battery' be better translated as 'accumulator'' perhaps?

And control would be better translated as test.

Yes, that wasn't google though or my French.

Heres where I found my info, check the post about halfway down by xmexclusive.

I wasn't sure about putting in a link to another forum but I don't think I can do a very good job of explaining what I read without plagiarising terribly.

After a careful look you have three transparent vessels each with marked volumes against time or pressure and maybe components on graphs, bottles are marked with vehicle types and have a taper connection to suit varying sizes of rubber pipe, they are also colour coded in the universal traffic light colours sooooo.
Is it a hydraulics diagnostic tool for measuring acceptable levels of return fluid from different components on different vehicles to ascertain whether a hydraulic component is worn out or not.

It strikes me as the sort of rare dealer tool you would get all excited about but once you have paid a fortune for it by bidding against similar excited citroenists you find that you could of made it your self for £5 and the reason its imaculate is because not even the dealerships found it usefull.

If it is what I think it is it would be fairly useless as well as experience would tell you that part X is Jeffed beyond repair without having to faff about setting all this kit up and waiting for the leakdown test.

Is it time to put us out of our missery? This isn't the tool mentioned in Johns thread anyway, I don't think.
