About Steering Column Cowlings

A motor vehicle’s steering column contains a variety of electrical wires and connections. The operation of the windscreen wipers and the vehicle’s lights are almost always based in switches on either side of the steering column. In many vehicles, the horn, cruise control, audio system controls and even the gear shift are located in the steering column.

Because the steering column contains so many mechanical and electrical parts it needs to be protected and the way in which this protection is achieved is by way of the Jaguarsteering column cowling. In simple terms, the Jaguarsteering column cowling is a cover, typically made from plastic, which is used to enclose the contents of the steering column. Not only does this protect the electrical parts from the risk of damp and short circuits it also keeps moisture and dust away from the mechanical parts.

Most steering column cowlings come in two pieces, for ease of fitting and removal. Although a relatively cheap and straightforward component, it still plays an invaluable role in protecting the contents of the steering column and the steering assembly from the effects of damp and dirt and protects the driver from possible contact with the vehicle’s electrics. Replacement of a broken Jaguarsteering column cowling is relatively cheap and simple.

 

Jaguar trivia

  • The 2014 Superbowl advert for Jaguar featured Brit actors Ben Kingsley and Mark Strong, with a terrified Tom Hiddlestone hanging out of a helicopter as it flew across London. Not many people know that the driver used for this advert was The Stig (Ben Collins).
  • The iconic Jaguar ornament on the bonnet isn't included as standard anymore. Lots of people seem to think it's illegal, but they're not, as long as the ornament is spring-loaded. The jaguar ornament is known in-house as The Leaper, and you can still buy the Leaper as an after-purchase accessory.
  • The first-ever XK120 rolled off the production line and was delivered immediately to Clark Gable, who had preordered it well in advance. The XK120 came with a removable windscreen and could hit a solid 120mph..
  • PM Margaret Thatcher was determined to keep Jaguar as a British company, and in 1984 she announced that the brand was protected from foreign purchasing. The government retained a 50% share of the company until it became clear that foreign investment was essential as 1990 rolled around.
  • The Jaguar XJ has that luxurious leather interior, but did you know that all of that leather comes very specifically from Scottish Angus Bulls? Bulls don't get stretch marks, and they don't get bitten much by mosquitoes either. Belly and neck skin becomes the dash and door finish, while the backbone and the rump are used for the seats.
