The book will guide you through everything from removing and stripping the engine to bodywork restoration, as well as regular servicing & maintenance issues. Including hints and tips from someone who has "been there, done that". The book also includes chapters on understanding the hydraulic system, practical repair of the hydraulic system and a guide for newbies on buying a used DS.

CitroŽn DS The Complete Story 

by Jon Presnell

Does the world really need another book on the DS?  The definitive works are Olivier de Serres' "DS Le Grand Livre" and John Reynolds' " The Original DS".  This book adds little new but if you don't speak French, then it is an essential purchase, along with "The Original DS".
