Hi,, Just bought a 2003 C3 1.4HDi Desire... did this model come with a tow eye/hook as standard? If so then I cant find it so can someone advise where its located/stored when not in use.

Also whats the part number if I have to buy one?

This is an incomplete set, but you can see the towing eye in its home. Citroen call it a 'ring' and there are several part numbers for it depending on the age of the car.

6744.12 - until RPO 09974
and
6744.14 - since RPO 09975

are probably the ones you will be looking at, if you want to know about the RPO/ORGA (and the cars birthday) have a look at this post https://citroenc3owners.com/citroen-c3-t ... -t204.html
