The BX octopus job

ER Classics Desktop 2022

The BX octopus job. That is often a prayer without end. But now that BXs are carefully coming out of the damn corner, you can no longer buy a nice BX for change, it pays to take a good look at it.

The large and small octopus are the hose bundles that control the hydraulics of the BX. The hoses and connections become obsolete and leak. That is also allowed. After all, the last BXs are also from 92-93.

Many of these octopuses have already been provisionally patched, taped, shortened or fitted with pieces of new hose in the course of their lives.

But now is just about the last chance to have your BX supplied with fresh octopuses. There are still some new copies (NOS), but the stock is quickly becoming smaller. And before BXsen become so popular that there will be 'reference' octopuses? That will take a while.

Searching for and finding fresh octopuses (the large cost around the 200 E, the small usually a little more) is usually not done via the local Citroen dealer. He often does not want to invest the time and effort.

But specialists such as Bart Ebben from Malden, Garage Berben from Ulft, Garage 80 from Leeuwarden, van Ven from Roosendaal and Garage Hydraulique from Raamsdonksveer.

The assembly of those hose bundles can be done yourself. Climb the Matterhorn on clogs too. We recommend outsourcing the assembly. But after that you will not remember your BX!
