About Steering Column Adjustables
The steering wheel is one of the most frequently used controls in any motor vehicle. It is therefore important that the driver is able to operate the steering wheel comfortably. It is for that reason that the Citroenadjustable steering column was developed.
The first Citroenadjustable steering column took the form of a tilt wheel, which was developed in the early 20th century. Originally a luxury item on cars, the tilt steering wheel operates to adjust the steering wheel by moving it through an arc in an upward and downward motion. The mechanism involves a ratchet joint that is situated in the steering column. By disengaging this lock, the wheel can be adjusted upward or downward. In certain designs of adjustable steering columns, the pivot is positioned slightly forward, which permits a degree of vertical movement with minimal tilt, whilst in other designs the pivot is positioned virtually inside the steering wheel, enabling the angle of the steering wheel to be changed with virtually no alteration to its height.
Other, modern types of Citroenadjustable steering column permit the steering wheel height to be adjusted without any significant change in tilt. The majority of those systems operate with compression locks or electric motors rather than ratchet joints.
Whatever type of Citroenadjustable steering column is employed; it can make the driving experience considerably more comfortable for the driver.
- 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.
- 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.
