Поддомкрачивание and towage


Entering into a standard complete set of the car the jack is intended only for performance of change of wheels (see more low). In all other cases it is necessary to use a jack тележечного type, or after поддомкрачивания to establish the car on strong props.

The jack of a standard complete set got in special домкратную a point of a threshold

Paws тележечного a jack or the hydraulic lift should be got under standard домкратные car points or as it is possible more close to them.

For car fixing in the lifted position it is necessary to use the special props established near to amplifiers домкратных of points of thresholds of the car

For loading distribution between a jack and a car threshold it is necessary to lay wooden брусок. To raise redock of the car a jack head it is necessary to get under the central part of a forward stretcher (besides do not forget to lay the wooden block).

For loading distribution between a head тележечного a jack and a car stretcher it is necessary to lay the wooden block

At all do not get a jack under the pallet картера or components of a steering drive/suspension bracket!

At поддомкрачивании a back of the car composers of the present Management recommend to get a basic beam under towing eyes. If possibility to take advantage of a beam is absent, follows serially поддомкратить and to establish on props at first one bolt of the car, then second,

At all do not get a jack under a spare wheel as the panel of a floor of the car will be in this case inevitably damaged!

At using a jack of a standard complete set watch correctness of input of its head in gearing with amplifiers of thresholds.

Do not start at all performance of works under the car, fixed in the lifted position by means of only one jack!


In case of serious damages there can be a necessity for emergency delivery of the failed car on a car repair shop. Any motorist in the practice necessarily faces situations when it is required to carry out towage of other vehicle. Towage on the big distances should be carried out only by forces of experts эвакуационной services. If the distance is rather insignificant, towage can be simply enough carried out own forces with attraction of the second car. Only strict observance of some special rules Is required:

• Use at towage of an emergency vehicle only sling specially intended for this purpose which always can be got cheaply practically in any shop of automobile accessories. On back glass of the towed car the alarm tablet of the corresponding maintenance should be established.
• do not forget to turn a key in the lock of ignition of the towed car in position ON, otherwise inevitably there will be a wheel blocking. Besides, at the included ignition activation of indexes of turns and stoplights becomes possible.
• the Towing sling should be clung only for eyes specially intended for this purpose.
• Before the beginning of towage do not forget to release a lay brake and to translate a transmission in neutral position.
• the Driver of the towed car should try to keep a towing sling constantly tense in order to avoid arrivals on it wheels.
• Before a start of motion drivers of both vehicles should co-ordinate among themselves a route.
• Movement should be carried out only with moderate speeds and on the shortest route. Avoid sharp braking, accelerations and turns.
• Remember that at the switched off engine efficiency of braking of the car considerably decreases because the amplifier of brakes ceases to function. In view of told, habitual efficiency of braking is reached at the expense of applying to a brake pedal большего, than usually (at the working engine) efforts.
• On the models equipped with the hydraulic booster of a wheel большее effort it is necessary to put and to a steering wheel at maneuvering.
• On models with АТ it is necessary to observe some special safety measures, neglect which performance can lead to a transmission exit out of operation, — consult in the firm service-centre of company Citroyon.
