1986 Citroen BX RD Break 1.9 diesel from Germany
Changed accumulator sphere (main suspension regulator)
Original seats were finished - interior from higher spec model fitted - lovely.
These models known for electrical problems. No temp gauge, only flashing warning light (must be vigilant - this has finished a lot of these off) problem with dry connections.
Problems with diesel flow - ongoing.
Just fitted new distributor on Boxing Day!
Great design. Mk.1 BXs now very rare espcially the estate version.
Reliable, economical and stylish. Not overloaded with unnecessary gimmicks.
This car is for enthusiasts : it's eccentric and after twenty years fragile in places, but the engine is a tough old legend (just maintain it properly)
Great on long runs. I cross Europe in this beast, spending pence and oozing 80s style amongst modern generic blob cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
