Rear Brake Pads

From Citroen SM Wiki

There are two part numbers for the rear brakes based on car manufacture date. They are not interchangeable.

These look interchangeable with GS brakes, but do not believe it!

  • DP244.....Citroen SM 71-72 (EBC lists it as 71-74, but don't believe that!)
    • Actual dimensions: 49 x 59 x 12mm
    • Textar V-1431 FF
    • No indicator wire
    • Early versions two-part (layer) back plate. These are obsolete.
    • later versions had material bonded directly to finned aluminum frame
  • DP245.....Citroen SM 73-on
    • Actual dimensions: 54 x 69 x 12mm
    • Indicator wire

Can I find the chassis number and date for switchover? Brucem -- Textar catalog implies that the switch date was 6/72.
