The Citroën BX was introduced in France in October of 1982 and became available in the UK in September 1983. The original models available in the range were the BX, BX 14 E, BX 14 RE, BX 16 RS and BX 16 TRS. The types of engine, transmission and equipment fitted being dependent on the model and the body design being that of a Hatchback.
For the 1985 model year, the BX 19 GT was made available for the driver requiring a higher performance model. Also in 1985, the BX Leader replaced the BX and BX 14 models, the Leader being fitted with the same engine and transmission as the BX 14. In the second half of 1985 the Estate was introduced, two versions being available, the BX 16 RS Estate and the BX 16 TRS Estate.
Changes for the 1987 model year included the introduction of the BX 16 RE Hatchback, the BX 19 GTi (fuel injection and ABS braking), the BX 19 GTi 16v (16 valve engine) and the replacement for the BX 19 GT, the BX 19 TRS. Also, a BX 19 TRS Estate fitted with automatic transmission became available. The facia and instruments were modified on all models, with round instruments being used. Other aesthetic improvements were made to improve the external appearance of certain models.
For the 1988 model year, all BX 14 models were equipped with the K1G engine with 2CA type 4 or 5-speed manual gearbox.
For the 1989 model year, BX 16 and BX 19 models were equipped with the ВЕЗ 5-speed manual gearbox to replace the earlier BE1 5-speed type.
In early 1990, BX 19 TZi Hatchback and Estate models became available, these being equipped with catalytic converters.
In late 1992, BX 16 TXi catalytic converter equipped Hatchback and Estate models were added to the range. On all models, the engine and transmission is mounted transversely and drives the front wheels through two driveshafts. The transmission available (depending on model type) is a 4 or 5-speed manual gearbox or a 4-speed automatic unit.
All models are extremely comfortable to ride in, thanks to the hydropneumatic suspension and luxurious interior trim. The unique design suspension is self-levelling and the ride height is maintained automatically over all road conditions. A ground clearance lever inside the car may be used to adjust the ride height when travelling over rough ground, this also makes changing a roadwheel much simpler.
Your Citroen BX Manual
The aim of this Manual is to help you get the best value from your vehicle. It can do so in several ways. It can help you decide what work must be done (even should you choose to get it done by a garage), provide information on routine maintenance and servicing, and give a logical course of action and diagnosis when random faults occur. However, it is hoped that you will use the Manual by tackling the work yourself. On simpler jobs it may even be quicker than booking the car into a garage and going there twice, to leave and collect it. Perhaps most important, a lot of money can be saved by avoiding the costs a garage must charge to cover its labour and overheads.
The Manual has drawings and descriptions to show the function of the various components so that their layout can be understood. Then the tasks are described and photographed in a clear step-by-step sequence.
