    It looks to me like the height adjuster, ours of course on RHS. Car appears to be a Manual, with clutch pedal and foot operated park brake.

    The thingy is above the height adjuster... I can only assume handbrake.
    Fleeting glimpse. Pause the vid for a closer look.

    The height adjuster is obvious as he operates it in the video, I think Garyk means the lever directly above it and above the bonnet openers shaped like a 2CV gearstick, I also don't know what it is and have never seen one in a DS either.
    Garyk: handbrake is foot operated

    Left drive foot (parking) brake release lever. RHD BVH's have a similar device to the left of and above the pedals under the Dash. Only they are usually a knob that locks in a similar gate not a lever!

    From top to bottom:

    Heighten adjust lever
    The wobbly knob/ lever immediately above is the bonnet release lever.Pallas cars have a moulded plastic end.
    Right at the top is the hand lock/ release for the foot-operated parking brake

    Correction ---- levers from bottom to top!

    Yes, I stand corrected too. The "thingy" above the height adjuster is the bonnet release for LHS. My DS Pallas has the same end to bonnet release on that side, although with our familiar release on the other side.

    Cheers

    I assumed it was the handbrake release lever too, but I don't recall seeing one like this.
    Car in vid is a manual, prolly a 5 speed.

    Hello, my LHD Dsuper5 has that kind of handbrake release lever. Apply brake with foot pedal, press down on lever to release.
    It is shown on page 12b of the DS manual pdf
    I haven't been able to finesse releasing the handbrake, it is either on or off.
    The little button can be flicked across to lock the release, same as the 2CV

    A couple of artsy D videos on Youtube:
    https://youtu.be/gYRPLdOYuTs DS drives to Berlin.
    (and what is notable around the 1 minute mark???)

    https://youtu.be/MNoLQmL_olc Decapotable in summer.
    (The camera location around the half minute mark could get you arrested here!)

    CitroŽn DS - Bob Neyret et Jacques Terramorsi

    I've not watched it all but interesting...!
    A tip - for those who don't speak French, you can turn on the subtitles (CC button) and then in the settings (the cog) you can turn autotranslate on to English - it does a reasonable job...!

    Cheers,

    Mark....
