Hi. I have the problem where the wires aren't the same length. Where do I find the auto adjuster? Also does it need to be changed or can it be fixed? I have looked at the diagram but it's just full of letters/numbers. Which one refers to the auto adjuster? TIA

There is more than one type of automatic handbrake adjuster system fitted to the rear drums of an A51 Citroen C3.

Look in the passenger door shut for the 'RPO (Birthday)' to pinpoint which system is employed in your model.

I don't see a 1.2 Diesel engine listed, so that doesn't help either. Please update your CAR BIO to reflect the correct information about your Citroen C3.
