A complete range of parts for the electricity and lighting of your 2CV
The generations of 2CV saloon cars and vans that have succeeded one another over the course of history have undergone several changes in their electrical systems, but the most important was undoubtedly the switch from a 6-volt to a 12-volt electrical system. This changeover took place progressively between August 1965 and February 1970 with the arrival of the 2CV 4 and 2CV 6, which made the adoption of 12 volts on the 2CV saloon general. This is why we offer two main product families in our parts catalogue, our references for 2CV electrical and lighting parts
for the 12V circuit and those for the 6V circuit fitted to the oldest models. As far as lighting and signal lights are concerned, you will find here the different models and shapes of headlights and lens that have been fitted by Citroën throughout the history of the 2CV. For example, the rectangular headlights that appeared in 1974 and were fitted as standard on the 2CV 4 until 1978 and the 2CV 6 until 1979, or the rear light lens which also evolved at the beginning of the 1970s to adopt a trapezoidal shape. These car parts are all offered to you with notably numerous original references which are exclusive to our shop and which make the joy of collectors. As far as spare parts specific to the electrical environment of the engine are concerned, you will find them in the 2CV engine chapter on two separate pages: one dedicated to ignition - coil - spark plug
and the other to alternator - starter.
Optimal lighting while maintaining the original appearance
The quality of car lighting is a driving comfort and safety feature that has improved considerably over the years. Indeed, the 2CV designed in the 1940s cannot claim to have as powerful and efficient lighting as a modern car. This is even more the case for cars with a 6-volt circuit. Fortunately, you can now take advantage of our range of LED bulbs
specially developed for the 2CV and its derivative models such as the Dyane or the Mehari. They offer multiple advantages such as a higher light intensity than filament lamps, a very low power consumption and a much longer life span. By adopting this technology, you will have the comfort and quality of modern lighting for your 2CV
without modifying its historic look, particularly if you adapt our range of headlights or original indicator lights.
A reliable electrical system
The electrical system is an essential part of any car's functioning and needs to be maintained and checked periodically to prevent breakdowns. The battery, especially in cold weather, should be monitored and the electrolyte level should be checked every 5,000 km and topped up if necessary. Also check the correct functioning of your headlights, signal lights, indicators or lights. To fit these various spare parts, you can consult our technical sheets
(in French). Concerning the windscreen wiper, another accessory which benefits from an electrical power supply even if the very first 2CVs needed to operate the windscreen wipers by hand, you will also find it in a specific section by clicking here
