Currently reading: C3 brake problems spark 20k recall
More than 20,000 C3 Picasso's have been recalled due to a fault with the brake system

Citroen is recalling more than 20,000 Citroen C3 Picasso’s following the discovery that the car’s brakes can be applied from the passenger footwell.

The fault stems from the manufacturing process during the C3 Picasso’s conversion from left-hand drive to right-hand drive for the UK market.

The brake cable - which is transferred to the right side of the car from the left - is covered by a thin piece of felt on the left side, which can be pressed easily by passengers, applying the brakes.

Recalled cars will be fitted with an additional brake isolator to eliminate the problem.
