Following on from the post about the Xantia 16v engine, I also have some
various questions regarding the Xantia which I'm hoping someone may want to
1. Does anyone know if a portable CD player will fit in the space between
the Keypad Immobiliser and the bottom of the ash tray thingy? Otherwise what
is the best way to connect a CD player?
2. On the top-spec cars, what are the three buttons for to the left of the
steering wheel? My Xantia just has plastic button covers.
3. What is the strange tiny grill just to the right of the digital clock?
4. Why is there a grab bar on the dashboard? This seems quite useless unless
it is meant to be used as a magasine rack.
5. What is the orange light with a "K" on it which lights up just before
As you can see I am very excited about my new-old Xantia.
I have the VSX edition, whic also haves some plastic covers. One of the
covers will be used if you have an alarm system. Another one may be
necessary if you have a tow hook in the rear (indicator for trailer)
I got my old new Xantia one week ago, and I still am excited!

Just buy a new Radio/Cd player, should cost some 100 to 140 euro for a good
one here in the Netherlands or Germany. Connecting it in the car is easy,
is equipped with a ISO-connector, so take out the old radio and just plug in
the new radio.
Can be anything optional, like electrical heating for the mirrors, front
The Xsara also does have this grill (Type 1 Xsara, before 2000?)
If your have climate-control (automatic airco) in your car, then you
find the temperature sensor behind this tiny grill
You can use it as a magasine rack, or as a grab bar like in a roller coaster
your passenger :-)
