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.

Could anyone tell me what is underneath the screw that says: "WARNING ! don't touch this screw"? I know it says "It regulates the pressure at full lock, and would need special equipment to calibrate.", however I think that I have a leak from behind it, so if this is the case, I'm going to need to remove it.

Would it be possible to mark the screw and FDV with tipex for instance, and put it back in the same place? also, is it just the actual screw that moves or does the actual collar move too?

I would count the revolutions when opening, and close to quite exactly similar depth. But hey, I've broken a lot of things :D .

I also did it this way with no problem. Measure the depth and make a mark on the edge of the screw. I don´t think the car will explode :)
