    Haynes manuals or Google king required

    Ok, if you've owned a few cars, you've probably bought a haynes manual.
    After you sell the car, for some reason you always manage to keep the manual.

    Well I'm hoping that the good people of Hexus may have a Citroen ZX manual amongst their collections.

    Essentially I'm trying to find the difference in Suspension (Front anti-roll bar, rear torsion beam) between standard 1.9TD and Volcane TD.

    Tried google - Came up with diddly squat.

    The Volcanes are the sporty ZX, so in theory should have uprated suspension. Diesels, being heavier, generally have uprated suspension when compared to base models. However, there was a Petrol and TD volcane; Now from a manufacturing point of view, are you really going to do one lot of suspension for the diesel, another for the Petrol Volcane and another for the diesel Volcane? or as I suspect (and need confirming), one lot of suspension for the TD/Volcanes, but give the volcanes stiffer shockers.

    Whew!

    We used to have a ZX but it was the 1.4 petrol 'Advantage', and I doubt the Haynes manual would cover the diesel models or the Volcane (which was a pretty awesome car by the way, back in the day!). Will check later though if we still have the manual...

    I have NO idea but you might want to try these guys:

    They might have an idea as they see a lot of older Citroens and the owner / head mechanic has a 306 GTI-6 which might be closely related to the petrol version...

    I've read that the Volcane (the 1.9 petrol at least) shares the same floorplan, suspension and running gear as the Pug 306 XSi, so that might help

    well ZX/306 are pretty close bedfellows - there were obviously differences (rear suspension is mounted differently to apparently allow for a little bit of rear wheel steering).

    Have mailed PTS - see what that brings in.

    Shad, if you've still got the manual, then please have a look - Looks like Haynes did two manuals - one for the petrol range, one for the diesel - so we may be able to find out about the petrol volcane at least

    Maybe someone here: http://www.citroenet.org.uk/ could help?

    Otherwise - silly question, but have you thought of asking your local citreon dealer?

    My sis had one.
    I'll ring her and find out if she still has it.

    Edit
    Dad thinks they sold it with the car as he can't find it. Next time I'm in Gloucester I double check. He reckons it was a halfords purchase but I doubt they carry it now.

    Diesel you want ain't it? -

    Volcanes -
    2 flavours, 2 eras.
    Early versions have the 1.9 petrol or 1.9TD, later facelifted ones the 2.0 petrol or the same diesel. My guess would be similar suspension settings as all Volcanes were stiffened and lowered (unlike the high-rise Aura) though how I've no idea yet.

    Found the answer on another forum - Rear torsion bars and antiroll bar are 2mm thicker. Shockers are stiffer.
    Front struts are shorter and stiffer. Antiroll bar thicker.

    Whew! Looks like I'll have a few weekends work on!
