Further update on the n/s outer rack gaiter. Thought I would try my local dealer NT Shaw on the offchance and they are still available at a cost of £14.72, so ordered one and it should be here Weds. Parts man said they still have a few XM parts in stock, I'll see if they'll do a deal to clear whatever's left.

That gaiter price is way below any of the sellers marketing old stock parts.
Please update us on their stock items.
I was led to believe NT Shaw cleared all their Xm parts years ago.

As your car exists on the Dvla lookup, V65 was the correct form to apply with.
You should have received your V5 by now.

I called again this morning and spoke to Edward on the parts desk. Apparently they have some items in stock but don't have a list as such, he suggested emailing part numbers required and he will have a look (parts@ntshawlouth.citroen.co.uk).

Not sure if they do mail order, I might be able to help with collecting / posting things if not.

Just as a follow up to the previous posts I had a good chat with Ed at N T Shaw last week. Apparently they have the space to keep some old stock particularly for XM and BX models.

This includes a good quantity of spheres, unfortunately none suitable for my car though. The inner nearside rack gaiter is also still available to order for around £16. Having fitted a neoprene one I can see it gets very bunched up on full lock. Should have gone there first!

You will have your chance in a couple of years as that's how long the neoprene ones last before falling apart.

I'm pleased to hear that, not a job I would want to repeat in a hurry.

Genuine inner track rod end cover is now fitted. The pattern one was a complete waste of time as it wouldn't sit properly and kept slipping around.
