About Brake Master Cylinders
The Citroen brake master cylinder is a crucial part of the vehicle’s braking system. It is used to convert the mechanical force from the brake pedal into hydraulic pressure in order to stop the vehicle. The brake system is split into two circuits and the pressure in each circuit is controlled by the Citroen brake master cylinder.
The Citroen brake master cylinder consists of two reservoirs for brake fluid and two pistons, and is attached to the brake lines. When the driver depresses the brake pedal, this pushes on the first piston which causes pressure to build up in the Citroen brake master cylinder. As this pressure builds up it causes the second piston to compress the brake fluid. This pressure should be even in both cylinders. If it’s not, it is most likely caused by a leak. In the case of a leak, the Citroen brake master cylinder to operate using one piston. This will cause the driver to have to press the brake pedal down further and further until eventually the brakes will fail. Any damage to the Citroen brake master cylinder should be minimised and the master cylinder should be repaired immediately.
- The Citroën 2CV Safari had some crazy extra features. It was a four-wheel-drive vehicle, and Citroën decided that four-wheel drive meant that it would be better to have two engines...one at the front and one at the back. The fuel cap sticks out of the driver's door, and the tank was right under the driver's seat!
- Unfortunately, the founder of Citroën went bankrupt in 1934, even though the cars they produced were selling well and incredibly popular. The company exists today because tyre company Michelin bought the majority of shares in the company.
- The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
- Citroën was the first company to offer credit for buying cars! André Citroën registered a consumer credit company for the sole purpose of providing car buyers with the credit they'd need to buy one of his cars!
- The founder of the company, André Citroën, is renowned as something of a genius when it comes to marketing. He specifically targeted adverts for the 1922 Citroën Type C at women owners, and soon after the car became very popular, earning the nickname 'Petit Citron' after the distinctive lemon yellow paint job.
