Hello, first post, so be nice 😂.

My gf left her C3 standing for 3 years as she is a muppet, anyway, she wants it back on the road, so new timing belt, oil, filters, coolant, brake flush. I want ot change the gearbox oil as its been sitting for long, just not sure of the size of copper crush washer I need, looked everywhere online, any idea?

Also, it is a desire model, the badge is pretty grim, I want to put a new one of for her, is this only a main dealer jobby?

What is the VIN please (if you really want to change the gearbox oil). I would suggest you leave the oil where it is as many of the later gearboxes are sealed for life and not designed for refilling or even worse, topping-up.

Reply here and then you an PM the VIN :)
