About Power Steering Pulleys
The power steering pulleys function is to drive the power steering pump on a vehicle. It is usually made of solid steel because of the amount of strain that the pulley experiences through use. They operate at faster-than-engine speed. A power steering pulley will experience a huge amount of torque and speed so lightweight materials are not recommended for its construction as it could break or bend under the strain of the load. Because of this strong material it is unlikely that a power steering pulley will malfunction, and removal will only usually be in order if replacing the power steering pump. In the event that you need to remove a power steering pulley you should use the specialised tool for the job.
There are two different types of power steering pulley in operation and are powered either by the serpentine belt or single V-Type belt. The benefit of the serpentine belt is that it is less likely to break than the single V-type, meaning that the power steering pulley is more reliable.
Signs that the power steering pulley is not operating correctly could include squealing noises when driving or steering which tends to veer or shift to the side.
- Unfortunately, the founder of Citroën went bankrupt in 1934, even though the cars they produced were selling well and incredibly popular. The company exists today because tyre company Michelin bought the majority of shares in the company.
- Citroën cars have been put through their paces and all in the name of advertising. Citroën vehicles have trekked huge distances for promotional reasons, including expeditions across the Sahara, throughout Africa, all over Asia, and even across Alaska.
- The founder of the company, André Citroën, is renowned as something of a genius when it comes to marketing. He specifically targeted adverts for the 1922 Citroën Type C at women owners, and soon after the car became very popular, earning the nickname 'Petit Citron' after the distinctive lemon yellow paint job.
- Between 1925 and 1935, the Eiffel Tower was just a big, pointy billboard with the word 'Citroën' in bright lights from top to bottom. This was the first use of lights to advertise on the tower, and Citroën renewed the adverts every year until they were bought out by Michelin.
- 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.
