I had a mice nest in the chassis too. Maybe citroen got rid of mice by luring them into the chassis... ;-))

Amazing mouse trap, I wonder if it's patented!

Batteurs.....

I thought they were serviceable.....Mine appear to have a rivet rather than a removable plug...

That's ok, the later ones were riveted. If you move them up and down vertically and there are no scratching noises you can re-use them.

Learning something every day. Never seen a riveted one.
But no noises might also indicate it's seized... When moving up and down vertically(shaking), you should feel the weight
moving in there.

Yes you should feel the moving weight but it should not scratch..
Here a pic from a Dyane batteur NOS.
