Hello

The coloured parts you have arrowed are plugs.

They will be part of the engine bay loom, particularly the BSM loom or harness.

I don't think you can buy just the plug as they come from Citroen as a complete harness.

But if you need to butcher a loom, then look for the engine bay loom or engine bay harness.

Best to compare the ones in the picture with the ones on your car. Disconnect the battery and slide the clip to remove the plug.

question...
I'd like to check the status of those connectors too...

is there any downside in unplugging them (battery disconnected) or any sort of procedure that needs to be followed after it to re initialize something?

There is no problem disconnecting the battery to remove the BSM plugs because that is the same procedure to change the BSM.
