What bits do I need to fix this leak?

Post by sifaan »

When getting some other repairs done on my C5 mark 1 the mechanic showed me this leak at the boot of one of the rear spheres; what do I need to replace (apart from the boots)? (Part numbers would be helpful)

It’s been quite a while (maybe 60k km) since the spheres were replaced so probably would get them changed too- if I’m sourcing used ones are they the same in all mark 1’s with hydropneumatic suspensions?

Thanks!

When mine leaked they just replaced the boot, wasn't expensive.
The spheres last for ages. Never needed any replacing on either of my C5s.

Would be great if it's only the boots that need replacing - could someone help me with the part numbers for it?

527265 is the part for the rear boots (Saloon and Estate) and are still showing as available from Citroen. £13.92 Inc VAT as of today, but they may have to order them in.
