    Default GS Rear Brake Pads.

    Hi all, Number One. Does anyone have any idea if rear disc brake pads are available for a 1974 GS 1220 Break available anywhere in Australia. Number Two. Thank you for info regarding tyres arrived from UK in five working to my front door. Now the Registration and a nice drive.

    1015 handbrake pads are different as well.

    I don't know of anyone who'll mail you a new set, but I've always bought parts from Franzosiche Klassiker in Essen, Germany and tend to get enough useful parts to fit within a certain shipping bracket like plugs, filters and such.

    Good to see you've got yourself some Michelins... or at least that's what it sounds like you got.

    Let me guess, you have been kicking yourself for 30years for stocking rear citroen brake pads I didn't know you could wear out **rear** brake pads in any GS/CX/BX/XM/Xantia lifetime

    Thank you all, yes a full set of Michelin's for her. Rear pads are a bit low so thought give her a new set at the same time. Sorry I did not think of you David but will contact you shortly. As for the tyres I could not believe how quick delivery was, and postage was not that expensive, actually cost me less than a full set of CV boots and Steering Boots from Essen Germany. Many thanks for all of your help.

    I have replaced two sets of rear pads on my CXs. thats two sets in 650,000km and they weren't new at the start of each so that is probably a bit harsh to say they only last 325,000km per set. Dave, I hope the ones you have are asbestos free?

    Yeah they are the asbestos is free we don't charge for it:

    They are ok, we did have some asbestos pads for old R10's and stuff like that, there all gone now.

    My father paid a lot for CX rear wagon pads many years ago.... The wagon seemed to use rear pads/discs as rapidly as front. Given I have a spare set of wagon pads here, and no CX wagon, I think I"ll pass thanks

    I recall replacing the rear pads on the XM at about 200,000km. I did the job one morning before I went to work. One of the easiest jobs ever on the XM!

    tizzy - congrats on the Michies. I assume they are 145x15 XZX. Fantastic choice. They're a bit like cycling parler where a new Campagnolo groupset is more beautiful than any women. I'm biased, but they are a very attractive tyre.

    I'm running Vredestein 155x15 Sprint Classic's off my donor car at present and while they are great, they just don't have the smoothness of Michies. I'm getting more surprised every day how these little GS's can handle. Even with the Vredesteins, you can throw these little cars into corners, the front digs in and the back has this lovely, poetic body roll that's so akin to a 2CV - magic!

    I know people will say with the power available in the GS you don't need a specific tyre, however I just like to keep my cars as they were meant to be warts and all. Now I need to replace the rubber rings that support the foam rubber in the seat bases , these are available from Europe but am sure how many are required as both seats have none. Sit a bit low without the support of the rings.

    Default GS Rear Brake Pads.

    There are two layers of rings - one on the bottom and in the middle (on ones I've seen). You'll need quite a few. May be a good idea to redo the bottom part of the frame with some wire and hessian so you don't stress the rubber rings out too much.

    Happy driving!

    Thanks Donat think I will order around 100 plus the ones I have here will hopefully have some left over . They are .86euros each. so not bad really. Am enjoying getting things done. The surprise being the Nissan loving son in law who cannot get over how brilliant this little car is.
