    Default 2CV Handbrake pad removal

    Hi

    Advertisement


    I have an 87 2CV6 Special , can the handbrake pads be replaced without taking the calipers off ,

    Im hoping they can , and also where would I get this LHM hydraulic oil for the brakes ,, it has disk brakes on the front

    A very big yes though it is better to remove the front guards for better access.
    I remove the hand brake cables and then the levers then with a magnet it is easy to remove the old button pads.
    The adjustments can be time consuming but after you look at how they work it is a breeze.
    Most good auto parts places have LHM and the Citroen Club in your state will be able to help.

    Did you end up replacing the handbrake pads, or do you carry a brick around with you?
