Hi everybody, I'm a newbie so hope this is posting in the correct place.
I have a 65 plate (December 2015 build) C4 GP and have an electrical issue, first noticed that blind spot monitoring had stopped working, went through the settings but it wouldn't let me activate it, then noticed that the o/s repeater in the mirror housing wasn't operating, so if anyone has had this problem or similar and can help I'd be very grateful, bit more detail below.
As car was due for service (Independent Citroen garage) left it for them to check at same time.
They checked and said need to replace repeater and see if that was causing the problem and quoted £172.87 (£55.56 for repeater plus 1 1/2 hrs labour!).
Being a sensible type, I decide to see how much I could buy a repeater unit for and a troll around youtube for how to videos, couldn't find any for C4 but found one for a Peugeot, so ordered correct repeater (non OEM) from eBay for £25.79 with free shipping. Part duly arrived and I set about removing mirror glass and rear cowl, which although it looked exactly same as the Peugeot in the video, had different clips, but off it came and I unplugged and snapped out the repeater, fitted the replacement and thought best check it's working before reassembling, and no it wasn't working, so thought best reconnect all wires, but no difference.
Hopefully one of you brilliant members can point me in the right direction, or should I find a good auto electrician?

I had my drivers side indicator mirror fail, took it to my main dealer to replace the led light bulb and this didn't fix it. On investigation they noticed that the folding mechanism pinched the wire and broken the connection. £780 for a new mirror or £160 to fix the wire, I went with the cheaper option. I'm guessing you've pinched a wire in the same loom, mines a 2014gp

Thanks for the info, I think the auto electrician route is going to be the best option.
