All models are equipped with 2-planimetric brake system with a drive from the main hydraulic system of the car (see. Head Uniform hydraulic system) by means of the valve of the management playing a role of the main brake cylinder in brake systems of usual type. Pressure upon forward brake mechanisms moves directly from the main hydraulic system (through a pressure regulator). The contour of brake mechanisms of back wheels is connected to a hydraulic path of a back suspension bracket. At such scheme of distribution of pressure the main brake effort is the share of forward wheels of the car while the effort developed by back brake mechanisms depends on extent of loading of the car.
The pedal of a foot brake is mechanically connected with assembly of the valve of management.
Forward brake mechanisms are equipped with 1-piston supports of floating type influencing disks of ventilated type.
In back brake mechanisms the fixed supports equipped with two pistons, providing a clip of blocks to continuous disks are used.
The parking brake has a mechanical hummock drive and influences forward wheels of the car. The control lever is located the parking brake on a floor between forward seats.
The system of anti-blocking of brakes (ABS) is included into a standard complete set of some models and can be established in addition on any models. The design and a principle of functioning of system are described in the section System of anti-blocking of brakes (ABS) - the general information.
In extreme situations use as a working body in hydraulic system of SAE 10 or SAE 20 engine oil is allowed, however in such cases on arrival to a repair/parking place the hydraulic path should be emptied and at the first possibility is filled with standard LHM liquid.
After removal from system of liquid of a doubtful origin the hydraulic path should be washed out by special structure which it is possible to get in firm Citroёn company service centers. Having pumped over system, leave its filled with flushing structure which should be used throughout about 1000 km (600 miles) run. Then it is necessary to empty and fill system with standard hydraulic LHM liquid again. In case of failure of rubber consolidations as a result of use of the non-standard liquid, all damaged components are subject to replacement. It is necessary to charge performance of this work to specialists of car repair shop.
As replaceable components it is necessary to use only firm details of production of the Citroёn company which are usually painted in white or green color and are intended for use in contact to LHM liquid.
One of the basic rules which should be observed at service of components of a hydraulic path, the most careful observance of purity is. Carefully wipe components subject to a detachment and surfaces adjoining to them. All opened after removal of a component of connection at once cork in order to avoid hit in system of dirt and extraneous subjects.
