The steering mechanism - the general data, removal, major repairs and installation

The general information

On cars Citroyon Xantia the steering mechanism реечного type which, depending on a model complete set, can be equipped by the hydraulic booster is used.

The executive cylinder of system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel is established between the case реечной transfers and steering draught.


The steering mechanism with a manual drive

1 — Carter реечной transfers
2 — the Remote plug in the thickness of 9 mm
3 — the Bolt of fastening of the steering mechanism

4 — the Internal hinge of fastening of steering draught
5 — the Counternut (45 Nanometers)
6 — the Nut of a spherical finger of a tip of steering draught


The steering mechanism with a hydraulic drive

1 — Carter реечной transfers
3 — the Bolt of fastening of the steering mechanism (70 Nanometers)
4 — the Internal hinge of fastening of steering draught
5 — the Counternut (45 Nanometers)
7 — the Valve-regulator

8 — Fastening of the hydraulic cylinder on assemblage of the steering mechanism (90 Nanometers)
9 — the Emphasis (the course terminator) steering drive (not on all models)
10 — Fastening of the hydraulic cylinder on steering draught (60 Nanometers)
11 — the Remote washer in the thickness of 3 mm

Removal

The divider of the spherical support, new nuts of spherical fingers of hinges of steering draughts and new coupling bolt of fastening of an intermediate shaft of a steering column to приводной is required to a gear wheel реечной transfers. On the models equipped with the hydraulic booster of a wheel new sealing elements штуцерных sockets of hydraulic tubes be required also.


Fastening of an intermediate shaft of a steering column to приводной to a gear wheel реечной transfers

1 — the Nut of a coupling bolt
2 — the Coupling bolt
3 — the Fixing collar (to unclench in the directions specified by arrows)


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. On the models equipped with system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel, dump pressure in hydraulic system (the Uniform hydraulic system see the Head), then turn a steering wheel from an emphasis against the stop on purpose опорожнения the executive cylinder of a hydrodrive.
2. Prop up противооткатными boots back wheels, then поддомкратьте redock of the car and establish it on props. Remove forward wheels.
3. Make sure that naves of forward wheels are developed in rectilinear position.

4. On models with a manual drive of the steering mechanism disunite spherical hinges of fastening of three draughts of a drive of a gear change.

5. On the models equipped with system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel, release штуцерные sockets and disconnect from картера реечной transfers hydraulic tubes. At once закупорьте the open ends of tubes and reception unions of the steering mechanism for the purpose of hit prevention in dirt system.

6. From one of car boards ослабьте and partially turn away a nut of a spherical finger of the hinge of fastening of steering draught on ступичной to assemblage. By means of a divider of spherical support liberate a finger from the reception nest, then definitively turn away a nut.

7. Repeat procedure of division of the spherical hinge for the second steering draught from an opposite board of the car.
8. Remove thermofilters from assemblage of the steering mechanism.
9. Under the car give a nut of a coupling bolt of fastening of an intermediate shaft of a steering column to приводной to a gear wheel реечной transfers (Fastening of an intermediate shaft of a steering column to приводной to a gear wheel реечной transfers see an illustration). At a corresponding complete set shift aside a fixing collar and disconnect a shaft from a gear wheel.

10. Turn out two bolts of fastening картера реечной transfers to a stretcher. Remove the remote plugs/washers established between a stretcher and support of the steering mechanism (try to remember their landing position) (see an illustration — the support of the mechanism with a manual drive is shown).

11. Cautiously take assemblage of the steering mechanism from under the right board of the car.

Major repairs

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Attentively examine assemblage of the steering mechanism on presence of signs of deterioration and mechanical damages. Check up moving freedom рейке in all range of its course: рейка should move without jerks and excessive люфта). Major repairs реечной demand transfer from the executor of high qualification and its performance should be entrusted to experts of car-care centre. The unique components which replacement can be made forces of the mechanic-fan, tips of steering draughts (Removal and installation of tips of steering draughts see) are.
2. On the models equipped with system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel, examine all штуцерные sockets of hydraulic tubes on presence of traces of leaks. Make sure of reliability of a tightening накидных штуцерных nuts. Also examine on presence of signs of development of leaks the executive cylinder of the steering amplifier. In case of need replace the failed components.

Installation

Installation is made upside-down. Pay attention to following moments:
   a) Before installation of the steering mechanism on the car centre position gear рейки, having resulted it in the position answering to rectilinear position of operated wheels;
   b) Track correctness of installation of remote plugs/washers of support of fastening of the steering mechanism on a stretcher. Do not forget to put a washer under heads of fixing bolts;
   c) For fastening of spherical fingers of tips of steering draughts use new nuts. Replace also a nut of a coupling bolt карданного the hinge of a steering shaft;
   d) On the models equipped with system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel, replace sealing elements штуцерных connection sockets to картеру реечной transfers of hydraulic tubes;
   e) Track that the steering wheel and рейка the steering mechanism was occupied by positions. Answering to a rectilinear arrangement of operated wheels of the car, only after that start fastening of an intermediate shaft to приводной to a gear wheel реечной transfers;
   f) On the models equipped with system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel, after car lowering on the earth do not forget to tighten спускной the gate of a regulator of pressure and will move a control lever a suspension bracket in position "Maximum";
   g) In summary check up adjustment of corners of installation of forward wheels (Corners of installation of wheels - the general information, check and adjustment of convergence of forward wheels see).
