The Citroen C3 models are often fitted with a steering wheel height adjustment. This works well in conjunction with the seat height adjustment to provide a comfortable driving position.

You may not know how to adjust the Citroen C3 steering wheel height but if you have the hidden lever shown in the photo, it means the steering height can be adjusted.

  • Pull the lever towards the driver to unlock the mechanism.
  • Adjust the steering wheel height, also known as the steering rake.
  • When the adjustment is correct push the lever away from the driver to lock the steering wheel position.
