Plastic cover for Citroen C5 HATCHBACK 2.0I 2006 LHD

Post by NeaU »

HI

I've been looking for a plastic cover located under the car in driver's side some what more or less at the same point as the rear door (not a sill trim) but, it seems to be very hard to find. Now if someone have knowledge wherefrom to buy/order/steal it as a spare part (new or used in good condition) and is willing to deal his/her knowledge I would be very grateful and become very happy 😊

P.S If anyone tries to offer me an under engine cover plate one more time so I'll get mad 😠

They are known as underbody air deflectors. I had to replace them on my C5 Mk1 (I got them from a scrap yard, after getting the relevant information from this forum). I believe that the part code is 7013 T3 (if this is for the left hand side of the car, and for a Mk2), although it may have a later code (I checked using my copy of DocBackup from 2012).

Page 12 of my C5 thread shows the parts that Marc looked up for me. Remember that this was for a C5 Mk1, and NOT a C5 Mk2 (which is what you have), fourth post down;

I think it might be better to provide a photo of the area in question - as there are engine air deflectors for both sides in addition to the under engine protection panel you mention. Then there are heat shields for the exhaust system going from front to rear, and further there are panels etc., like these:

so without a visual clue or part number it will be hard for anyone to know exactly what you are referring to.

I found this pic of C5 X7 Under body trays elsewhere from the forum viewtopic.php?t=61782

It's the part I marked with the red arrow. It seems like the right one but I'm not 100% sure if it's exactly in same shape and dimensioned to fit into my car. Anyhow now when I know what I'm looking for so the remaining question is where to find...

Then it MIGHT be 7013 V7 (but I am NOT certain). According to MY copy of DocBackup it is NOT the same shape as the item you arrowed in red, but it is the closest I can find. Looking in the underbody protection there is an item for the left that has the name "Air Deflector Left". It does not show up on ebay, but I did a search for Citroen 7013 V7 and found this webpage (it is item 3);

Although you can order almost anything from the Russians nowadays, unfortunately they don't have the part I need either 😔

I just wonder if I have to spend rest of my days hanging around at scrap yards :?:

Pop your VIN up and I’ll take a loo, but the older C5s don’t have the same parts as the X7, so there will be lots of these covers that won’t exist for the earlier models.
