Upgraded trafficators – Flashing LED festoon bulbs  Posted October 2017

From Graham Tulett  – A friend of mine bought a set for his Citroen and I have ordered a pair for myself. (my other car isn’t modern enough for trafficators). These turn your dull trafficator into a bright blinker, much easier to see and therefore much safer, and take 5 minutes to fit. Follow the link below to the sellers website inn the UK.
I think they’re an excellent idea. not cheap at nearly $50nz a pair including postage but they seem to last very well.

Silent Blocs for Traction Avant  Posted 30-11-2017

Brain Read purchased and installed silent blocs from Roger earlier this year.

The testing stations are aware they are rubber bushes and part of the suspension and can perish over time.

If you are interested in purchasing replacement Silent  Blocs for your traction please either contact Brian Read  at

Subject: Citroen Traction: Silentblocs for the Legere/Normale/Commerciale/Familiale cars

My grandson will be making a batch of silent blocs for the above cars, if there is enough interest, using the tooling that I made the last batch with.

His firm, is called ‘Yellow Box Engineering Ltd.’ and he will write to you shortly to see if you or anyone you know might be interested.

Best wishes
