this seemed to be the right sort of forum for this sort of thing? I've come across this place randomly a few times over the years, as again just recently. It seems most other forums are dying on their arses at the mo so it's good to see this one thriving!
A friend has just bought a 3 door ZX for spares for his other one. It's an MOT failure due to tin worm and pretty much nothing else. It was advertised locally on Ebay for a wheel nut but we went and had a look and decided the whole car seemed like a better prospect?
The story goes that the old boy who owned it had "upgraded" to a Citroen C5. The remarkable thing about that was that he was apparently 92 when he bought his new car! Apparenty she's called Betty.
His grandson had been given the car to sell but after seeing the rust had decided it was worth more in bits. A shame as it's not especially high mileage, starts brilliantly, drives very well, has power steering and overall it's not too bad. Apart from a couple of places...
Typical spot for a ZX
Chassis rails too.
The sills seem to be a favourite spot too due to Citroens frankly ridiculous idea of what constitutes a jacking point.
I'm pretty sure this isn't meant to be removed from the car with just your fingers?!
