About Window Regulator Mechanisms
The Citroen window regulator mechanism is the device which allows the person sitting in the car to open and close the window next to them.
Concealed behind the door panel, the window regulator mechanism is either manual or electric. Manual window regulator mechanisms are operated by a handle on the side panel of the door beneath the window. This handle is connected to the winder mechanism, and when the handle is turned by hand this causes the window regulator mechanism to wind or unwind the window accordingly, with the rotation of the handle. When the handle is turned the cable it's connected to is wound around a spool attached to a gear mechanism which winds the window up or down. Electric window regulator mechanisms are powered by a motor which is activated by a switch within easy reach of the driver, usually found on the dashboard, arm rest or door panel. All electric windows in the car can be controlled by the driver's controls but individual windows will usually have a switch to operate them individually too. The glass in car windows is held in place when the window opens or closes by track assemblies which assists with the smooth operation of the window.
If the Citroen window regulator mechanism is damaged the mechanism won't work properly and the window will move slowly and judder, or simply stop working and get jammed open or shut. When buying a replacement window regulator mechanism it is important to make sure you choose the right Citroen window regulator mechanism so it will fit the make and model of your car.
- 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.
- Buying Maserati was definitely a mistake for Citroën. The SM model didn't sell well, and that led to financial difficulties that meant the car company was eventually acquired by Peugeot.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
