Important Differences

With the introduction of the “Xantia II” (as Citroen call the post-1998 models), the design of the strut mount was changed, supposedly to make collapse (due to failure of the rubber-steel bond) less likely and less catastrophic. The obvious and important difference between equivalent Mk1 and Mk2 strut mounts is the larger diameter of the Mk2 gaiters under the wing (that's why you have to buy new boots/gaiters).

However, strut monts for non-Hydractive, Hydractive/Activa and V6 models are not interchangeable due to more significant differences:-

  1. Non-Hydractive cars have small (3.5mm) bore pressure feed pipes to the strut mount. The connection thread is M8 x 1.25 or, from RPO 08209 to 08518, M9 x1.25.
  2. Hydractive/Activa/V6 cars have large (10mm) bore feed pipes and the mount thread is M16 x 1.5 (check!)
  3. The V6 cars are unique in having a larger diameter strut shaft (with a larger nut). The visible difference in the strut mounts is that the V6 ones have a 20mm top hole, all others are 17mm.

With a little ingenuity, non-Hydractive and Hydractive strut mounts can be converted; a competent machine shop can fairly easily make an adaptor to reduce the larger pipe bore or, slightly more demanding, drill and tap a non-Hydractive strut mount to take the 10mm diameter Hydractive pipe. V6 mounts are unique.

Old strut mounts can be refurbished by elastomer.eu formerly Kingas.

NOTES

  1. The original strut mounts are NFP. When fitting the replacement S2 type Strut Mounts listed below for S1 cars, Strut Boot 5271 92 must also be fitted as the original design boots won't fit the later Strut Mounts.
  2. “Active anti-roll” = 'Activa' models.
