My 2007 1.4 HDI has one rubber missing from the top of the front strut, IE- the one you can see with the bonnet open.
The other side has split and it won't be long before it falls off too.
Can you buy these rubber washers as a single part or does it come with the steel washer or is it part of a kit?

Hi jbz2079,

Its part of the top mount kit as you can see in the picture of this Citroen C3 top strut kit on ebay.

I think you would be advised to do the whole kit, because these bits don't really wear for no reason, probably some other worn bits at the top of the strut are causing the excessive wear.

Find the Citroen C3 top suspension parts on Euro Car Parts


The part does have its own part number from Citroen though. '5033.75 Shock absorber control cup', so Citroen parts counter may be able to source some.
