 I wil look for a place that can revive them.
I think I remember that Anders had his Koni shocks reworked. I don't recall where, but it was cheaper than new.

I don't think mine are Koni, so Iam checking for price for new ones.

Indeed I did. As described in this thread: http://www.matrasport.dk/forum/index.php/topic,1414.0.html

I need a new fanbelt on my 2.2 and saw this on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BELT-10x910-AUDI-100-80-A6-VOLVO-240-740-2-3-BX-MURENA_W0QQitemZ220556189083QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item335a2c5d9b

That belt is 11.2 mm wide by 866 mm long and that does not agree with the size on Roy's alternative parts page: http://www.matraclub.org.uk/PartNumbers.html.

Roy say 9.5 mm X 913 mm. I tend to believe Roy, but want to make sure. Who has measured their fanbelt? Huh

Something strange in the auction.
The headpicture has the right belt, and in the description is a picture with other sizes.
The most common belt used is from Gates.
Stil available in the shops.


10x913 wich is about right.

I need some lockable wheel nuts, is it a special thread for the Murena or a standard Citroen item?

Standard 12mm x 1.5mm thread as used by Vauxhall etc.  Not sure of the length - take out one of your wheel bolts and measure it!

I ask because I'm in the process of getting my original wheels refurbed, I had some more modern Momos on but am going back the originals. I currently have locking nuts but they look rusty and if I'm spending this money on getting the alloys looking nice and new, I might as well replace these too! On the original Murena bolts you had plastic covers to hide the bolts, half the ones with my wheels are missing or damaged, anyone got spares that they would sell or swap?

Do a search in Ebay for "wheel nut cover" and you will find a bunch.

Just came across this site where they had an 80 AH alternator for the Murena. (I cross referenced a Lucas LRA592 80AH alternator)

http://www.alanko.de/Alternator/Generator/Alternator-generator::447.html

"Only" 100.99€, but since a 80 AH cost 250£ at MatraMagic, it must be a good price. Wink

It could come in handy when I start my Peltier air condition projekt. It will require lots of Amps.  Grin

UPDATE! I talked to the company and unfortunately, the alternator they point to is only 55 AH according to the guy on their hotline.  Angry
He will write me when he finds out what number to use instead.

Not that I expect you have to replace this part very often, but the sun visors in the Murena turn out to be manufactured by Volkswagen/Audi!



The type number stamped on it is:
Left sun visor 431 857 551 C
Right sun visor (with mirror) has 2 numbers: 431 857 552 / 432 857 552

Maybe someone could check at a VAG dealership what Volkswagen or Audi are also using these sun visors. Once again, I don't expect them to fail, but I'm very curious what car they came from.

(edit: I have replaced the picture with a better one, this is a clearer view on the back of the part which is fixed into the ceiling with two screws)
