Part numbers in ServiceBox have the format XXXX.YY but this is rarely present on the part itself which usually has a sticker with a long number that begins with a 9.

My local independent former Citroen tech tells me that the long numbner that begins with a 9 is the real part number (and I can't remember what he said about the ServiceBox number.) and that there can be many (interchangeable, I presume) actual parts (identified by their 9- number) for a given ServiceBox id.

Have you heard this before?

Is there a way to convert a ServiceBox number into a 9- number?

You can use both numbers for Citroen parts. The 9 digit ones started as Peugeot ones and a few CIT were converted to 9 digit but you can still order on Citroen numbers.

A search in Service Box on original numbers on 'All Vehicle Families' would find what cars they are used on but a lot of C6 are specific to that model
