Electropneumatic suspension bracket (at a corresponding complete set)

 Do not lift the car a jack, the lift, and do not spend other works on servicing when the ignition key is in position ON, and also within a minute after поворачивания it to position LOCK or ACC, - the system of a pneumatic suspension bracket intended for alignment of a body of the car, it can unexpectedly be activated that is fraught with car damage, and also reception of traumas of attendants!


Do not include ignition if the car lifted over the earth is not in horizontal position. If it is required, that the ignition key was in position ON, preliminary take a safety lock of protection of a chain of a pneumatic suspension bracket. If the safety lock was taken for the period of performance of works and ignition inclusion was made, on termination of works turn a key in position LOCK, for a second or more disconnect a negative wire from the battery, then connect it back, - as a result of performance of the given procedure there is a restoration of function of self-diagnostics in system of an electropneumatic suspension bracket.

 The height of position of a body of the car over a road surface can automatically change within the first minute after ignition inclusion, or a conclusion of a key from position ON.


The electropneumatic suspension bracket gives possibility of a choice of one of two variants of position of a suspension bracket on height of a road gleam, and also provides the automatic control of the chosen height without dependence from degree of loading of the car.

Installation of size of a road gleam

The suspension bracket design allows to choose one or the other possible positions of a body: Normal (NORMAL) and Lifted (HIGH). Switching is made by means of the special button. For transition from position NORMAL in position HIGH it is necessary to press the switching button at the working engine. Return to normal position is made by repeated pressing of the same button at the included ignition and is not dependent on that works or the engine is muffled.


Position NORMAL

The given position is used for movement in normal conditions.

Position HIGH

In the given position of a suspension bracket the body rises approximately on 30-40 mm above normal level. The mode is used at movement on roads with a rough covering. The remark: Transition in position HIGH is possible only at speeds of movement below 80 km/h. At excess of the stipulated limit there is a suspension bracket machine translation in normal position to return to position HIGH at decrease in speed below 50 km/h. Besides, switching of a mode of a suspension bracket is blocked during fulfilment of turns and also when car wheels are at different height (for example, at arrival by one wheel on a border or at movement in cross-country conditions).

Suspension bracket transfer in position HIGH can be accompanied by the short-term characteristic sound which is starting with an impellent compartment and being a sign of serviceable functioning of system. In cold weather, it is especially direct after engine start, loudness of a sound can raise that should not cause anxiety.

The choice of position HIGH of a suspension bracket is accompanied by activation located on an instrument guard of light indicator HEIGHT HI (see Has undressed the Arrangement of working elements). At the moment of switching the indicator functions in a flashing mode, and the appreciable increase in frequency of a blinking of the indicator testifies to infringement of serviceability of functioning of system and necessity to drive away the car on firm HUNDRED Subaru.

The automatic control of the chosen height of a road gleam

The given function of system provides подержание the set height of position of a body (depending on the chosen mode, - NORMAL or HIGH) without dependence from presence of passengers, luggage or cargo. Function operates only at the included engine and within one minute, after key turn in position АСС or LOCK.

 Function of updating of height of a body is blocked during fulfilment of turns and also when car wheels are at different height (for example, at arrival by one wheel on a border or at movement in cross-country conditions).
