Suspension bracket and steering drive


Forward suspension bracket and steering drive


1. Поддомкратьте redock of the car also establish it on props.
2. Make visual check of a condition dusterов spherical support and protective covers картера the helmsman рейки. Replace the worn out or supposing leaks covers - hit inside dusterов a dirt or a moisture conducts to acceleration of deterioration of spherical support and components реечной transfers.
3. On the models equipped with system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel, check up a condition of hoses PAS. Examine on presence of signs of leaks штуцерные connections of hydraulic lines and covers картера the steering mechanism. Podtekanie oils through protective covers at pressure increase inside картера the helmsman рейки usually testifies to deterioration of epiploons.

4. Grasp a forward wheel of the car in points on 12 both at 6 o'clock and sharply pull it. Presence of any appreciable люфта demands carrying out of investigation of the reasons of its occurrence. Continuing to pull a wheel, ask the assistant to squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake. If люфт thus will disappear or it will considerably be reduced, hence, deterioration ступичных bearings takes place. Otherwise it is necessary to check up a condition of hinges and support of components of a suspension bracket.

5. Now grasp a wheel in points on 9 and at 3 o'clock and repeat check. Люфт, besides, it can appear connected with deterioration ступичных bearings. The second possible reason of a weak point is deterioration of tips of steering draughts. At deterioration of external tips usually takes place visual люфт wheels. For an estimation of degree of deterioration of the hinge of an internal tip put a hand on a protective cover картера реечной the transfers, the second hand grasp draught. If now to pull a wheel, it will be possible to feel люфт in the worn out hinge.
6. Having taken advantage of mount or the big screw-driver, estimate degree of deterioration of plugs of support of a suspension bracket: get the lever between a corresponding component and its reference point. Presence small люфта quite naturally also speaks elasticity of rubber inserts, however the excessive weak point testifies to deterioration of a support. In parallel, visually estimate a condition of all rubber pillows opened to access and inserts. Pay attention to such defects, as cracks, stratifications, ruptures, signs of ageing of a material, etc.
7. Lower the car on the earth and ask the assistant повращать a steering wheel approximately on 1/8 turns in each of the parties. The delay in reaction of operated wheels to steering wheel rotation (люфт) should be very insignificant, and in an ideal to be absent at all. Otherwise check up a condition of hinges and support of components of a suspension bracket and a steering drive (see above). Estimate deterioration degree карданных hinges of a steering column, and also components actually реечной transfers.

Check of a condition of hydraulic racks of a suspension bracket


1. Check up racks on presence of traces of leaks of a hydraulic liquid on the case, rubber dusterе and through a piston rod. Leaks testify to internal defect of assemblage and necessity of carrying out of its replacement.
2. Check up a condition and reliability of fastening of all hydraulic tubes and hoses. In case of revealing of the slightest traces of leaks of a liquid immediately try to reveal their source and to eliminate the reason. The description of procedures of replacement of hydraulic tubes and hoses is resulted in the Head Uniform hydraulic system.
3. Check up also an external condition of hydraulic valves and sockets.
4. In the presence of suspicions on infringement of serviceability of functioning of hydraulic system immediately address for the help to experts.
