OEM part nos for C3 parts, anyone got access ?

Post by charentejohn »

I used to be able to log on but they changed it and now I think it is pros only. As ever various options so an OEM would help. I need new front shocks, and may as well fit rears at the same time.
Car is CITROËN C3 I (FC_) 1.4 16V VIN : VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]

For example there are two sets look the same and decommended when I put in my reg no, but they have different OEM lists ? https://www.oscaro.com/jeu-de-2-amortis ... Wzeg4EsNsE

Last but not least I apparently need a load of bits at the top of the strut such as rubber pad and metal bit. All in good order, a new rubber pad may be worth it, question is why do different shock absorbers have different top fittings since the springs are the same ?

Any help apprecieted John

I see the vin has been blanked out, no problem sharing it. If the check can be done by reg no (French) it is DN 839 WT

I appreciate the need for a charge but will skip it if you don't mind. Just that I don't work on cars anymore and this is just a one off as they are being awkward, how it works here proper dealer parts or forget it. Most garages won't fit parts you buy, inclined to have one last go and do it myself but would rather a garage did it. :) No worries John

No problem, it's just that PSA now charge us for this data - and for what it would cost you for half an hour of timed access yourself gets you up to 2 years of parts enquiries via the Forum.

At least you know there is an option in future.
