Just realised, didn't mention that those peg bolts are standard M8 thread, so Citroen must have had an off day by not using their preferred choice of b'stard thread. :lol:

How does this part work? Doesn't appear to move..

Have lubed it so hopefully it frees off. I am guessing its headlight adjuster, should it pull or twist from inside the car.

haha! as a new found expert on this particular element of the car, I can answer that!! :D

on the right hand side (in your case) under the top dash you should see a big knob! , it turns to raise and lower the headlights when weight is in the rear, its a simple system of a thread in a brass barrel, wd40 on the thread I guess if its stuck...ohhh feeling pleased with myself I can answer a tech question!!

Yep. I have a right hand drive rubber mat with cut out for organ pedal accelerator. It's got a couple of splits, but is basically sound. £10 secures plus postage. Whereabouts are you?
