Citroen C5 Mk2 55Reg Offside rear Suspension Ram

Post by chrisso1959 »

Hi, I think I need to either replace the drivers side rear suspension ram unit or replace seal on it as I have mot test due Oct 1st
and as it is leaking fluid regularly its likely to fail test. I've tried everywhere I can think of to source a new one
even second hand on ebay and Im at a loss as to where to get one other than a main stealer?
Much thanks in advance as to where I can get one.
Cheers.

Have you determined that it is actually the ram leaking.
Usually it is just the gaiter and they are relatively cheap to replace.
The ram is designed to leak into the gaiter which returns the LDS to the reservoir.

New rams are very hard to get. There were some available from Poland.

If it is the rear leak back boot, these are still available from Citroen and are only about £14
