    Default DS23 parking brake handle

    I have snapped the release handle for the parking brake and cannot find a replacement. Do I need to make one?

    Citroen Classics website in UK have them, you could try Jason Hantos at Hornsby his business is called Pallas Motors phone is 0407 281 269. Denton at European Auto Care Penrith also. Those guys either remake them or get them made up.

    sorry I read it as cable.


    You could try Andre Pol at Citroen Andre, he did have NOS RHD handbrake levers in stock awhile ago, just looked at site but couldn't spot them.

    Some time ago I made one out of a block of aluminium.

    On the down side, it took a lot of filing and shaping.

    On the plus side it hasn't broken since! It's rough, but serviceable.

    With any luck there should be some piccies here.

    Cheers, Pottsy

    Worth trying him, but the one he previously listed was sold to someone on here with a similar problem about a year ago.

    Inspirational stuff Pottsy. I saw this excellent post and idea - but if I can find one for a reasonable price Iíll go with it.

    Update: Citroen classic have used ones available for £20 and they are getting either NOS or replicas this week.

    Hmmm any tips on how to get the parking brake handle in its proper location without undue force?

    Do I need to spread the handle to get the plastic level in situ
