    Default Arcane 2CV question

    I dont have a 2CV on hand for reference, and I need to know something about the mounting of the triangular infil panels between the bonnet and front guards. The front of these panels is secured by a M5 setscrew and the the top rear has a slip-in bracket, but how is the bottom rear retained - does it just sit there, is there a buffer?

    Hi,
    there are two brackets on the rear of the panel that attaches to the bulkhead. One on top and one on the bottom.
    Can post a picture if you like.....

    regards,

    Hi,
    here are some photos of how the triangulat guard is attached.
    The bottom bracket is identical to the top bracket.
    On the bulkead/firewall itself is a welded bolt hole into which the bolt goes. On the guard itself is a small welded bracket.

    You'll probably find the bolt hole and bracket are still there but you're just missing the bolt and bracket.

    these are pics on my 2CV but I'm pretty sure it is standard on all 2cv's.

    The hook of the bracket that slips into the slot on the triangle usually has a rubber sleeve to stop it rattling. A centimetre of any small rubber tube that can be stretched onto the bracket will do the trick.
