citroen c5 comms

Postby axford » Sun 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

Hi,thanks for the info but could you expand on ye oldie metal ring - did you have to buy the whole comms unit and where does it sit in the unit and is it easy to replace ? thanks
