citroen c5 comms

PostSun Jul 04, 2010 2:57 pm

Hi all,i,ve got the old problem of a mark one c5 with comms problem - lights switching on when indicating etc.
Does any one know if i can swap a later version ie from a post facelift - after 2004 model wiper stalk (comms).
The wires are different colours but it looks the same.
Any info would be much appreciated .Chris
