About Steering Rack Manuals

The Citroenmanual steering rack and pinion system consists of two main parts. The first of these is the pinion. This is a toothed, circular “gear” that connects to the steering column of the vehicle. The pinion rests on a linear “gear” known as the rack. When the steering wheel turns it causes the pinion to rotate. This rotation translates to linear movement of the rack.

The ends of the Citroenmanual steering rack connect to rods, which are known as tie rods. These, in turn, are connected to spindles located on the vehicle’s wheels. When the rack moves from side to side, when prompted by the rotation of the pinion, the wheels are caused to move, thus translating the driver’s operation of the steering wheel to the directional movement of the vehicle.

To keep the mechanism of the Citroenmanual steering rack in good working order it is essential to keep the ends clean and dry and also to ensure that they are adequately lubricated. This is achieved by encasing the steering rack within a set of rubber boots or gaiters.

If there are any problems with the Citroenmanual steering rack as a result of wear and tear caused by water or dirt or lack of effective lubrication it is likely to require replacement if the steering system of the vehicle is to be restored.

Citroen trivia

  • The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Citroën was the first company to offer credit for buying cars! André Citroën registered a consumer credit company for the sole purpose of providing car buyers with the credit they'd need to buy one of his cars!
  • 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.
