I have no clue if this is what we need, because I didn't need any yet, but if to big I order the smaller to.
They will come in handy anyhow.

I have also ordered some, because I am sure it will fit in the Murena.

After the order I got a new message from the seller. He checked it and it fits in a 6mm hole.

A bit dusty, but looks better and better... Smiley The revived spotlights are very shiny. I had to paint a black frame on the covers to hide the yellowish edge, and I changed the glass inserts.

Wiring still looks a bit bushy, because cable ties have not been installed yet. Windscreen washer pump works, but the tank is not so nice. Maybe this will be changed to a similar universal one.

And some photos of the new headlight mounting. I think it is better than the original.

Hopefully the new mounting will bear bad roads. Originally it was designed for normal headlights but I think it is tough enough to keep the lamps when the from eyes are closed and the lamps are hanging almost vertically.

The engine is still not perfect, when idling it sounds the car may suffocate. I have a repair kit for the Solex so the carburettor will be removed for an overhaul.

No vac leaks?
A overhaul is not a bad idea after all those years.
I was lucky.
When I bought it there was a new carb mounted.
I am still thinking to revive a old type carb because teh after market carb are not always for the Murena.
Mine has the number CIC 34 161 an original is CIC 34 141
I still have the feeling there is a gap in acceleration with the new carb.
It is not a big problem but when I find some time......  Roll Eyes

I will take a look at the one way valve before the vacuum tank, I suspect it stuck maybe...

Can it cause the problem?

Yes it can.
Disconnect the vac-hoses from the engine and close the connections on the inlet.
Try if it goes better at idle.
You can also try to look for leaks at the inlet seals by spraying some water at it when running.
If a leak is there you will notice.

Does anyone have any photos of the parts of the door lock mechanism? (marked with red ellipse in the picture)

Something is wrong with them. I suspect something is missing there in my car... Maybe the painter lost a small piece when he removed the lock mechanism during respray...
When the bolts of the part 14137/14138 are thigthened, the lock mechanism does not work. Should be there any shim or something like that underneath these parts?

Thanks in advance.

Back in time for me so digged up from the catacombs of my memory...

I think te clue is the special bolts and rings the lock is mounted with.
If the ring is wrong or missing you have that problem.

Cant remember where I placed the rings, but a picture from the parts manual makes it clear (part32).

Thank you very much!
The picture is very informative. Now I know what can be the problem...

As you always have photos of everything.... do not you have some of Murenas whiches have original decals (stripes) on the bonnet?

Edit:
I found 2 photos what I mean. Is it original decal?

'Doesn't look like original, but this is better asked to Roy G, that knows the cars from the beginning.

I have seen some Murena's that had a striping decal over the botom side with the letters MATRA MURENA cursive written on it.
The car from Razorback has a nice decal but it's more Peugeot/Talbot.
If you really want to, you can put them on your daily vehicle. Cheesy
