About Door Handles
The Citroen door handle is a vital component of the car door, enabling the person to get into the car.
A car door will have both an internal and an external handle. Most car door handles are made of strong plastic or metal. The Citroen door handle is an exterior door handle, fixed to the inner door frame with the aid of bolts, which are hidden by the inner door panel.
Door handles work with a pulling and latch mechanism, and are usually attached to this mechanism by screws. The door handle mechanism consists of a latch, a toothed wheel and a rotor which are contained behind the door panel. When the door handle is opened this causes the latch to release. The person can apply pressure to the Citroen door handle and, holding on to the handle, pull the door open (aided by the hinged mechanism of the door). The person can also push the door shut with the help of the Citroen door handle.
There are many different shapes, styles, materials, finishes and colours when it comes to car door handles. Purchasing a Citroen door handle will ensure you get the right part, designed to fit the make and model of your vehicle. There are also various car door handle accessories, which, like the door handles, are usually specific to car make and model, and not an option for all, such as a handle guard and handle cover.
If the door handle isn't functioning properly, sticking, jamming or refusing to open, it's a sign that you may need to replace the Citroen door handle with one that is compatible with your vehicle.
- The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
- In 1968, Citroën bought control of the Italian car firm Maserati. That purchase led to the design of the Citroën GT, which came with hydro-pneumatic suspension and a V6 engine. It did well in terms of sales, but production of the last version, the DS23 Pallas Electronique, was stopped in 1975 after the '73 oil crisis.
- Buying Maserati was definitely a mistake for Citroën. The SM model didn't sell well, and that led to financial difficulties that meant the car company was eventually acquired by Peugeot.
- John Lennon appeared in an advert for the Citroën DS3, many years after his death. The advert caused quite a lot of public criticism for Yoko Ono, who agreed to the musician's likeness being used.
- After WWII, Michelin owned Citroën and wanted to make a car for the people. The Citroën 2CV was designed for driving on French roads, so it was incredibly sturdy, and tests were carried out by driving through ploughed fields with trays of eggs on the seats. Although changes in design happened, some version of the Citroën 2CV was in production from 1949 all the way through to 1990.
