Lovely looking car!

glad you're getting it restored

i notice, Teesside.....i'm also in Teesside

so, there's an another XM in Teesside, how wonderful!
I haven't seen an XM in Teesside for quite a few years, is yours on the road and what area are you in? I used to see a burgundy one around and about, is that one yours? Good to hear from you...
Mines a grey 2.1 td auto, only been here since April

Currently sitting at a garage in Thornaby awaiting repairs to start on Monday

I'm in Middlesbrough, hoping to have mine on the road around this time next week, feel free to have a drive of her, she does need some work

I'm so pleased there's another local one, should meet up and get both the Teesside XMs together, I can't see there being any others
Hi again, I was wondering how you got on with getting your XM sorted. Are you now running around in it? There is a group on Facebook called “Retros of Teesside” (it is a big group, worth joining) and I notice a guy has a beautiful looking blue XM. So when mine gets done, there will be 3 XM’s I’m Teesside, that we know about. Cheers Derek
Hi

yes it's on the road and i've been driving round in it a fair bit lately

yes indeed, i'm a member of that group, and i'm meeting him on wednesday to get them both together

i do wonder if there's any more hidden away? must be
That’s great news, I don’t know when but I hope to become the third XM guy at some point. Enjoy your meet up, I am sure I will see some pictures posted on the group👍

It might be a bit too heavy to push🤔🤪

Paul (citroenxm) is kindly supplying a replacement starter motor. So when it arrived in Wisbech, it will be fitted and then Peter will get the XM running. He can then tackle the suspension system.

I think it might be slow going, because Peter is a busy man😄

Hi All, looking for a bit of advice for my mate Pete. The starter Paul kindly provided, arrived in Wisbech and is working great. Today Pete installed it but there is still an issue with the car. The car won’t turn over on the key (correct code entered), just some dash lights go off. However, it will spin if the starter is shorted. That indicates a possible problem with the starter relay. So first question, does anyone know the location of the relay, or any other suggestions regarding the possible problem? Cheers….Derek

Try holding the key in the start position and move the gear lever from P to N..I've even just sort of pulled the lever towards R then bavk to P.. But bringing it to N will also allow starting, If the selector is out if adjustment it may not quite put the inhibit switch in the correct position when in P
The inhibit switch is on the back if the box.. I can't remember if the Autos have an additional start relay.. If so its obevof the relays behind the Headlights.
Projects:(eventually if theres any bodywork left)
92 L Xm 2.1t D auto project

Many Thanks for your reply, I have sent it over to Peter. You reply makes a lot of sense....Derek
