About Seat Motor Electrics

This motor is the device by which the driver’s seat set-up can be altered to allow for drivers of differing size and shape to choose their ideal driving position. The Citroen seat motor is usually located under the seat. There can be up to three different motors which will alter different sections of the seat. The height of the seat, forward and backward movement of the seat and the backrest angle can all be changed using the motors.

The motor can be activated by pressing buttons or switches on the left side of the driver’s seat or by the operation of a separate, stand-alone mechanism. The motor is powered by connection to the Citroen vehicle battery.

If the seat motor fails to operate this may be due to faulty wiring, poor terminal connections or the motor itself may have burnt out or be faulty. To service or replace the motors it will probably be necessary to remove the whole seat to gain access to the wiring or the motor itself.

Citroen trivia

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • At a recent count, Citroën cars have appeared in just under 1,800 films, with the most famous being the Citroën used in the James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only. That film even had a tie-in car, a special edition Citroën that was emblazoned with the 007 logo and optional bullet hole stickers for the windows.
  • The Citroën 2CV Safari had some crazy extra features. It was a four-wheel-drive vehicle, and Citroën decided that four-wheel drive meant that it would be better to have two engines...one at the front and one at the back. The fuel cap sticks out of the driver's door, and the tank was right under the driver's seat!
