Re: Wiper Blades

Each to their own, I don't scrimp on parts that I consider important, if anything I'll gladly pay a little more to upgrade them over the compromised ones from the manufacturer but that's a habit I've carried over from driving performance cars that I want to get more performance from I guess. I see n...

Re: Wiper Blades

Mine were the originals and the metal pivot point had discoloured and looked unsightly so I had no issue with replacing them but you're right, other options do exist and I did take the time to remove the old rubbers from the old ones to see what the process involved. It was straightforward enough. T...

I would have gone to the local main dealer but they aren't selling parts currently. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-CITROEN-C4-CACTUS-FRONT-WIPER-BLADES-161...

Re: Front wiper blades fixed price

Sorry to bump an old post but this seemed like the most active wiper blade one other than the sticky (https://www.cactusforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=1797). While washing my wife's car at the weekend to curb the boredom I noticed one of the wipers is split - I'd like to replace the pair. Unfortunatel...

Re: Puretech dangerous fault

Until you've found out what the cause of the oil consumption is can it be regarded as a design fault?

Looks like the Citroen GS from the back, a hearse in the middle and the Citroen Visa from the front. :lol:
