It's the 3rd time i did eveade an accident. The 2 other times it was a bicycle and a moped that came from an side street without watching. I ended up on the sidewalk at the other side from the street those times. A pedal from the moped just touched my hubcap and dented it. ;-)

I had the rear fog light switch blocked in the on position...annoying. Even with force i couldn't push it back in. So i tried to spray a bit of silicon oil in the switch along the buttons shaft. Happy that it started working immediatly. So i don't have to take the dash apart... pfff.

Yes it wasn't a electric problem but the button was just stuck in place.
It was one of this old type switches.

Ooh haven't seen one of those before. I've actually only ever seen late model 2cv cars in the flesh. My first was a drum brake 1980 and then I had the 1989 I still have. Never seen anything older than that! Funny eh.

It's from a normal 2cv6 special. It is an old type switch that they used also in the 60's. Even my wiper switch is the same as was used in several citroen models from the 60s.

Just scored 3 michelin tyres and one innertuber for 100 euros. One tyre and the innertube were new. The two others were used for one summer on a VW beetle's front wheels...

Had to move around all 3 deuches. Wanted to drive a while with the green 57 that was at the end of the garage. So pushed the ivory 57 out, then the green. That had rather low tyre pressure so i had to pump it up. I wanted to start the green but the battery from 2014 was dead. Even the chargers am meter didn't move. So took the blue in the first place and pushed the green back in. Then i wanted to start the ivory, it turned well on the starter but nothing happend. A few light coughs that was it. So had to check around. Cleaned the carb and spark plugs. Nothing. I found that the connectors on the coil where rather oxydised. After cleaning it came struggeling to life... The amp meter was on full charge all the way home. Hooked it up to charger for now. ;-)
