Citroen C5 mk1 roof rattle soud - find and fix

EN

In that article will describe my “adventure” of finding the source of annoying sound from the roof rear area. Or at least that was the initial thought about it.
So here is the story: driving below 90km/h (sorry EU driver don`t know how much is in mph) have no impact or showing the trouble unless there was cross wind. Going above 100 or even 110km/h and start small rattling sound from the roof area.
More precise - somewhere above the rear right passenger seat, roof handle. Hope you can imagine the place. If not, then see the rear slot for roof bars and put about 15cm toward the rear. I believe you already get it that I speak for the hatchback version.

Make Xantia`s Clarion radio bit more modern

EN
Maybe like me, you have seen few articles over the internet that explain similar idea what I have done.
Actually, my base intend was to try to crack (somehow) the CD changer input and to add there Bluetooth / AUX function but after few days it come to my mind: why not try to make it over the TAPE place. And as the rest found you can`t just remove the TAPE control. Then, thanks few web forums I follow the guidelines and here below it is the result.

Xantia Mk2 Ball-joints replacement

EN
Hello,
That is “my way”(without Sinatra), of changing them ball-joints. Just for the “fun”,there was also CV joint boot.
Probably you already saw in some youtube video, or in forum people using few meters arm and some belts to do the job. Well, that might also be home solution but for sure the torque gun do much better job and there is no need of converting the wheel hub into mummy.
