About Heater Matrix
A Relay Citroen heater matrix is a small box located behind the dashboard of the vehicle and is built in a similar way to a radiator, and has hot water/coolant running through it, but instead of radiating heat it has air passed over it by a fan and the air is heated. When the driver turns the heater controls in the vehicle, the Relay Citroen heater matrix operates and the passenger compartment of the vehicle is heated.
The most common reason for Relay Citroen heater matrix damage is blockage. These are difficult to unblock, and it is often easier to replace the Relay Citroen heater matrix rather than attempt to have it unblocked.
Signs that the Relay Citroen heater matrix is damaged can include a lack of heating in the vehicle, or finding coolant in the front passenger side footwell of the vehicle. If you turn the controls and only receive cold air, it is possible that you have an issue with coolant and the Relay Citroen heater matrix should be checked. You may also notice a fine mist of coolant on your windscreen if a Relay Citroen heater matrix fails. This is caused by the coolant being found in the ventilation system.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
