About Power Steering Boxs
Power steering, also known as power assisted steering, makes steering a motor vehicle easier for the driver by reducing the amount of force that is required to be applied to the steering wheel when trying to manoeuvre the car and almost every vehicle that is built nowadays has some form of power steering system.
Although electric power assisted steering is rising in popularity, by far the most prevalent system at present is hydraulic power.
Hydraulic steering employs a pump, which is normally driven by a belt. The pump generates pressure and the driver’s control is provided by either a rack and pinion or a Citroenpower steering box. Whichever of the two systems is used, the basic operation is the same. The fluid pressure generated by the pump is used to push against a piston. When the steering wheel is turned, pressure flows to one side, causing the piston, which is attached to the steering gears, to move. The driver is thereby able to allow hydraulic pressure to do most of the work involved in turning the steering wheel.
Although the rack and pinion system is felt to provide lighter weight and greater control precision, the Citroen power steering box is considered to be harder wearing and possess greater durability.

- French president Charles de Gaulle's life was saved by Citroën not once, but twice. In 1961 a Citroën DS managed to stay intact despite there being a bomb made of plastic explosive, dynamite, oil, and nails. It even managed to drive away from the scene. In 1962, de Gaulle was attacked again, this time with machine guns, but the Citroën again managed to get away from the would-be assassins.
- In 2019, the Citroën DS was voted in the UK as the 'coolest car ever', with writers and marketers calling it the Brigitte Bardot of cars. In second place was the E-Type Jag…
