There's a knob (fnaar) on L' Aventura peugeot citroen site for 29 euros without the plate. A bit pricey.

You could try Dean who has shit loads of Pug stuff. Not cheap either. Can't remember what his site is 

called but I have a phone number if you need it. D Spares has broken a couple over the last year or so,

he's the first person I call for spares first, so he might have one.

 

Yeah i was thinking of buying the knob without the plate and maybe try 3D print the top plate or make a mould and try copy the original. 

Yeah Ive bought a few bits off Dean H but found him expensive and also the parts were extremely poorly packaged.. sometimes just parts thrown into a shitty box with no bubble wrap or tape on the box.

Agreed about Dean. Had a couple of bits off him a few years ago. 

One was a £60 heater matrix that was clogged. Haven't used him since.

Try D Spares and Tyres. If anyone has a knob, he has. Fnar, fnaar.

So sort of related to this but what's it like in Ireland for unusual stuff surviving there?

I mean is there a site like how many left etc?

BTW it is nice to see what you're doing to it and why.

They introduced a stricter national car test that wiped a heap of chod off the roads, that's why UK stuff is often exported there.
I travelled Ireland extensively nearly 10 years ago and didn't see much of note unless you like Corolla saloons.

As was mentioned not a lot of unusual stuff survived due to a couple of scrappage schemes and also the strict vehicle testing (NCT) , every now and again something pops up like a citroen BX van that i'm currently trying to... ahem... aquire. 

That's why I found anyways that a lot more interesting chod has survived in northern Ireland, just its a hassle and sometimes expensive to bring a car from northern Ireland into the south.. tax and customs charges etc.

Yeah I keep an eye on his Ebay just incase. My last few purchases off him have put me off. 

Where are D Spares and Tyres based? or have a website?  Google is giving me no result.

D Spares is on here and lives Ludlow ish.  See his thread For Sale Plug 205/305/ 306.

He's broken a couple of 305's in the last year or so. I'll be heading his way weekend 26/27

this month for a rummage so if there's anything you need let me know and I'll see if he's 

got it.

I've seen only two ever, but it could have been the same one for all I know.

One South Dublin somewhere and the other was in Westport.

One was used by an electrical shop in Dundrum / Windy Arbour until around 2008 and lay until 2012 at the Alfa garage on South Lott's. Then disappeared
