The kit 95 669 034 and the filters 95 534 068 have been Not Found in Paris (NFP, not available) for a long time. Where did you manage to buy these please? Thanks.

Whilst that post looks new it is in fact a re-posting with missing photos of the original post dated Thu Jun 22, 2006....................

The last FDV I refurbished had filters which were ruptured. I just left them in and the FDV is still working normally so I don't think it is a show stopper not being able to fit new filters as they seem to rupture in use anyway. Of course I would still fit them if they were available from Citroen.
They do look like a standard part so may be they could be sourced from a supplier of similar small conical filters.
