    Default DS brake pads.

    Does anyone know of a local supplier for DS brake pads?
    Before I buy some overseas, thought I would check if there's some here?
    Repco list themselves as a Ferodo stockist, but they didn't have DS 65-75 on their list.
    This close to xmas would much prefer to source from Australia.

    Yes, try Roger Parker. Also Dapco - AutoFrance. EAI could possibly have a set.

    The CCCNSW had a rebonding exchange system. Is there something similar in Melbourne?

    Thanks Chris,
    I posted that note before I read the "Sticky" list of suppliers above, Roger looks like the best bet.
    The list could use a tidy up there's probably less than a page of relevant (current) info on it. Quite nostalgic after reading through all those old posts....... Getting old.

    Not sure that there is anyone down here doing it David. It does sound familiar though. I'm hopeful Roger will have some new pads on the shelf. Could put them in Wednesday evening if all goes well.

    Thanks

    Sorry to bump this thread.

    But I need some replacement brake pads. Would like an Australian supplier but happy to look at overseas. Tried contacting Roger Parker but he hasn't responded. Any leads would be great. It is for my 1974 Citroen DSpecial.

    Paris Motors in Richmond certainly used to have brake pads and spheres on the shelf but it's a fair while since I checked with them.

    You could try contacting CCC NSW Treasurer and organiser of exchange brake pads, Gus Robinson. email him at [email protected]

    Note it is exchange - you must supply old pads as exchange etc.
