Citroen stands for quality, style, and dependability. The brake system in the Citroen vehicle is the most important feature of the car, as it allows for safe and secure stopping. Unfortunately, like all car parts, sometimes issues can arise which can lead to brake failure. To be able to keep driving safely, it’s important to be able to disassemble and repair your brakes.
Fortunately, there is a Citroen Brake Disassembly and Repair Guide that provides an easy-to-follow process for removal and repair of brakes. To begin the disassembly process, you must first park the car on a flat, solid surface and make sure the parking brake is engaged. The Citroen process starts with the removal of the calipers. To remove the calipers, you must use a wrench to loosen the securing bolts on the back side of the caliper. Once the caliper is off, the brake pads should come off easily.
Next, use a wrench and an adjustable c-spanner to remove the caliper bracket from the brake assembly. Unscrew the inner and outer bolts to remove the bracket, and then remove the inner pads. With the pads removed, you must then clean and inspect the brake rotor. Cleaning should be done with brake cleaner and a rag, and use a flashlight to check for any signs of corrosion or damage that may affect the brake rotor.
Once the brake rotor is clean and all corrosion or damage is fixed, you must assemble the new caliper. Put the new pads in place in the order specified in the guide, and replace all the bolts. Finish the assembly process by replacing the caliper bracket and the dust seals. Once the new pads and brackets are all in place, you should check and adjust the brake fluid reservoir.
With the initial disassembly and repair process complete, you will now need to bleed the brakes to ensure that the brakes are functioning properly. For this step, you will need an adjustable wrench, brake fluid, and a container to catch any spilled brake fluid. Follow the guide to slowly and carefully bleed the brakes, and use the wrench to adjust the brake pedal height and pressure.
Finally, you must then test the brakes for proper performance. To test the brakes, have someone apply the brakes lightly and squeeze the brake pedal from both extremes. All of the brake components should move evenly, and the brakes should feel smooth and firm with no spongy spots.
After following the Citroen Brake Disassembly and Repair Guide step-by-step, you should have a functioning brake system that keeps you safe while you’re on the road. Make sure to keep all the necessary parts and tools handy in case any future problems arise.
