Hi everyone!

My Dad and I are huge fans of citroens and my dad has recently acquired two XMs:

The first is a Red 1993 2.0 SEi Auto Turbo currently used daily.
The second is a Silver 1999 2.1 Turbodiesel VSX Auto Estate and it's currently sat in a garage in need of a lot of parts!

We also have a peculiar GS pickup conversion. :shock:

I have been struggling to find parts for the estate and I thought this would be a good place to continue the search!

Looking forward to being on the forum!

Michael

Hi Michael,

What parts do you need?

I recall the GS pickup being for sale a couple of years ago. I take it there has been additional strengthening added to compensate for it losing the roof.

Is the Mandarin Sei Turbo L413 GRX?
1992 3.0 V6-24.Rp 5713 EXY Black
1992 2.1SD M.RP 5685 in ENT Blue Sideral

Hi!

I cannot actually comment on the GS. I will look into it. I would assume it has, as it hasn't yet fallen apart! :shock:

A quick list of parts for the XM:
Rear Exhaust Box
Rear Discs
Steering Rack (RHD)
LHM High Pressure Pump and Seals
Positive Battery Lead
Glow Plugs
Bonnet Struts
Brake Pressure Regulator/Accumulator

The garage she's at right now said there's a Peugeot/Citroen specialist based in York but I am unable to find him.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

P.S. Our Mandarin SEi is L487 GRX. Dad and I drove her down from Liverpool!

Hi!

A quick list of parts for the XM:
Rear Exhaust Box
Rear Discs
Steering Rack (RHD) I have a spare 1992 rack in good condition, needs a track rod end and L/h gaiter fitting.
LHM High Pressure Pump and Seals
Positive Battery Lead
Glow Plugs
Bonnet Struts I probably have a pair in good order
Brake Pressure Regulator/Accumulator Brake Doseur valve or main system accumulator?

The below complete car was for sale, but needs engine work and welding, so Chris may be prepared to break it down for major parts.

TBH. It sounds like your garage may have gone a bit OTT with the part list. It would be interesting to see why a hydraulic pump and seals is required and doseur valve/accumulator, as these rarely go wrong and can be serviced with a seal kit.

Here is a link regarding your GS pickup. If it is indeed a factory built one it is very rare, though as far as I can find, there was never a genuine factory pickup, the proposal was turned down due to competition against peugeot pickups.

The proposer was Boyer and Fils, bodybuilders. I suspect yours is a cut down saloon, judging by the boot lid and uplifted sweep on the rear wings.
