So do I look for a matching part number?I don't think this is a serial number - 964398880 looks like a part number.
Mines a 16v? does that make a difference?The Citroen C3 1.4 8v 2003 is listed as being fitted with a Siemens unit, from initial production with the same unit through to 2009.
I'm not really any the wiser as I still don't know whether to rely on BSM B-3, 964398880-00 or the new kid on the block, 6500Y3 to be assured of getting a part that A. fits in the box B. does what it should do in terms of functioning.
Many BSM B-3 fuse boxes are fitted to many vehicles, according to ebay listings, that makes me nervous as some are delphi, some are seimens some are from C3s
The part/serial number throws up very little on a google trawl
and 6500Y3 comes up with a photo of a BSM B-1 fuse box which looks identical to mine, is Seimens and may or may not work.
At £130, I can save at least £90 buying used, and if I had the money I'd buy one of each and sell two on but as I am skint, I only intend on having one shot at this and need to get it right first time.
Sorry to appear "picky" but see my front strut debacle if you need to understand my reticence,
How about this one ebay item no.140909354718, listed for a Peugeot 307? but not at that price!!!!!!!!!!!
or this one seimens T118470003 (same as mine) BSM B-3 (same as mine) £40! free postage, but listed for a Peugeot 206 Petrol!!!
