Are you talking about the strut tops? If you are, there is a company who refurbishes them in such a way as to prevent them from spearing through the bonnet;

Do Citroen still sell top mounts?
If so, what price is 5271 E4 and 5271 F6 please? I’m assuming that right means offside in the strut mount table otherwise I need the left one.
My offside one looks ready to collapse. Lots of daylight when putting alternator back in S2.
Hi Roger,
From your VIN ending 7785 (=RP6463), Parts has both L & R strut tops still available, which is amazing.
Not quite the part numbers you quote, but this is the correct page for the VIN:

Left and Right are always as seen from the driver's seat, not from the front.

Elastomer are the place to go for exchange/your own tops rebuilt. They do an excellent job. Full details on their website.

It’s the time it takes though Chris.

Be great if someone in the group has some kicking around that need refurb.

I wonder if citroenxm has any?

Also, it’s for the S2 VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]

Many thanks Chris.

Dare I ask how much they are...

I feel a long wait coming on whilst mounts are sent to Lithuania!
