DS and the Gearbox

One of the features that made the DS world famous is the extensive application of “hydraulics.” The first models were therefore equipped with a hydraulically operated clutch and gearbox, also known as semi-automatic or B.V.H. (Boite Vitesse Hydraulique). Later models  also came with a manual transmission.

Despite the more complex technology of the semi-automatic, it is reliable and robust but requires proper adjusting. We show you how that works in practice.

The entire gearbox is covered in this course. So you will get a good insight into the operation of the manual gearbox and also into the hydraulic control of this part of the powertrain.



For the 2018 and 20219 edition of this course Chyparse in Almere  kindly allowed us to use their facilities.
The location for the 2020 edition is not yet decided.


A fee of € 50 is requested for this one-day training. Lunch is included.


The planning for 2020 is still pending.
