Citroen Relay 2.2 Hdi Hi-top bigish van £400 - Lincs

Recommended Posts

Van duties for reloaction of skattrd_towers to skattrd_acres are pretty much complete, so I no longer need a big shit van. I can do the rest with Volvo and/or Espace






I bought this from Wuvvum of this parish about a month or so back, I've done a few hundred miles in it and fixed a couple of bits and broken another. I runs fine, starts on the button, handles as expected, it's high top, so I can stand in the back of it, it's not really LWB, more MWB than short.Clutch is on it's way out, very high, not slipped for me, but barmatt said he felt it slipping whilst reversing it.



1x new tyre, yes new.

1x new wheel bearing, fitted by my local garage



Speedo - I use gps on the phone. it worked before the garage fixed the bearing, so prob a cable knocked out/broken when doing wheel bearing.


MOT June 23 2018

Work needed for next MOT, unknown.

The sills might need welding, depends on the tester as it has a chassis the sills aren't stuctural, but that's just my opinion.


It's got some miles on it, some diesel in it (not alot) taxed to get you home.


£400 near Bourne Lincs - can collect from local train station - Grantham/Spalding are nearest, P'bo also possible


More details and pics on Wuv's thread: 



Is there a cartakeback thing for vans? As I'd like it gone soonish if none here is interested.

Tuesday would have to be evening for me, I don't get home until about 6pm.

It looks worse in the metal and is a former builders van, I'll try and get some pics to make it look less desirable tomorrow.

Ok, if you could do that it would be great. I’ll make a decision yes/no when you do.

You could have a look at my original thread for pictures of the less desirable bits...


Surprised about the clutch, it never gave a hint of slippage when I was using it, even when accelerating like a twat.

Ok, you’re on. You can’t expect the moon on a stick for £400! I’ll send you a PM.


Well …  as many on here can attest, some of the general population do expect the moon on a stick for not a lot ;)


Now, where did I put that V5, it's in a box somewhere ….

Train booked and ADAC card at the ready.


Don’t worry, I’ll spend an hour looking over it with a fine-toothed comb then ask to use your computer to do an HPI check before handing over the cash.


...only kidding. Someone once did that to me after coming from Birmingham to Newcastle for a sold-as-seen Passat tdi that was £800, and I’d picked them up from the station too. That was before they froze my Paypal account then couldn’t reply to my response, then, three months later tried as credit cards chargeback....grr.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
      Therefore, funtime!
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 

      99p anyone?
