Abbreviation mean ? (ex. BVA,BVM,MAD..)

Post by David_CH »

Anyone can explain me (Givemeabreak for sure can :-D ) what does the abbreviations BVA,BVM and MAD found on the service manual (or Servicebox) mean ?

BVA and BVM sound to me like "automatic gears" and "manual gears", but MAD ? (for example descriptions like "Since MAD 1036789")

thanks
Dave

Yes, BVA is an automatic gearbox, BVM is a manual gearbox and DAM is the old Peugeot build date code. It is now replaced with RPO as Citroen always had.
