Changing the chassis on a Citroën 2CV
In Belgium, there is strict legislation regarding work on the chassis.
When a chassis is rusty or even has holes, this can have negative consequences for the technical inspection (MOT). Filling in holes is often not an option because the chassis may exhibit severe weakening due to the rust. As a result the chassis may fold or even break. If the 2CV has failed its inspection because of the condition of the chassis, then we are able to give a professional judgement about its state and to replace it if necessary or desirable.
The law about chassis numbers is not as straightforward in Belgium as it is in neighbouring countries. If the chassis number on a 2CV is not correct or is incomplete, you can get a negative technical insepction or even be forbidden to drive the car on the road!
The 2CV Mehari Factory has been authorised by Citroën and the ministry of transport to put in chassis numbers on the new chassis, if it is purchased from us. This means that you can come to us to buy a new chassis (also available to buy from Citroparts – your online webshop for 2CV spare parts).
We then put in the chassis number into the new chassis based on your car documents and issue you with a certificate. This certificate then has to remain with your car documents.
You can then fit the chassis yourself, or of course we can do it for you.
