About Steering Column
One of the most important components in the steering system of any motor vehicle is the Relay Citroensteering column. The primary function of a car’s Relay Citroensteering column is to connect the steering wheel to the steering mechanism. This enables the steering system to translate the rotating movement of the steering wheel, as the driver steers the car, to the transverse movement of the vehicle’s wheels.
Although the operation of the steering system is the principle role of the Relay Citroensteering column it also has secondary functions, which include housing the Relay Citroensteering column electrical wiring, which is responsible for the operation of many of the vehicle’s accessories. The Relay Citroensteering column also hosts a variety of column switches, including those that are used to operate the windscreen wipers, the headlights, the horn, the direction indicators, the screen washers and, in higher range vehicles, the audio system, cruise control system and onboard computer.
Most modern vehicles also have a steering lock, which is housed within the Relay Citroensteering column and many vehicle models also have the facility to raise and lower the steering wheel, via a mechanism within the Relay Citroensteering column, to suit the height of individual drivers. Finally, certain steering columns, especially on older vehicles, also hold the gear shift control lever.
The Relay Citroensteering column is therefore a component with a variety of important functions.
