Check of a condition of components of a suspension bracket and steering

Components of a steering drive and suspension bracket should be checked regularly – their wear can serve as the reason of excessive and dangerous wear of tires, deteriorations of running characteristics and controllability of the car, and also fuel consumption increase. More detailed information on components of a suspension bracket and system of a steering is provided in Head the Suspension bracket and a steering.

Check of shock-absorbers

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Park the car on an equal platform, switch off the engine and cock the parking brake. Check pressure in tires.
  2. Press a hand one of corners of the car and release a hand. Pay attention to body movement. It should cease to shake and come back to a starting position after one or two fluctuations.
  3. If the car continues to be shaken or did not come back to a starting position, the possible reason of it is the worn-out shock-absorber.
  4. Repeat the procedure described above for each of three remained corners of the car.
  5. To Poddomkratta the car and reliably establish it on props.
  6. Examine shock-absorbers on existence of signs of leakage of liquid. The easy film of liquid is not at the bottom for concern. In case of detection of leak make sure that liquid follows from the shock-absorber, instead of from where still. If it nevertheless leak from the shock-absorber, replace shock-absorbers in pair on one bridge (or all four).
  7. Check reliability of installation and integrity of shock-absorbers. Check the top support of racks on existence of damages and wear signs. In case of detection of those replace racks.
  8. In case of need replacements of shock-absorbers address for instructions to Head the Suspension bracket and a steering. Always replace both components on one bridge. If it is possible, try to replace all four components in a set.

Check of a condition of system of a steering and suspension bracket

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Examine components of system of a steering on existence of damages and deformations. Pay attention to signs of leakage of the liquid, the damaged laying, protective covers and shtutserny connections.
  2. Clear the bottom end of a rotary fist of dirt. Ask the assistant to grasp bottom edge of a wheel and to shake it, and at this time watch movement of the spherical support connecting a rotary fist to the lever of a suspension bracket. Examine protective covers of spherical support on existence of gaps. At detection люфта or the torn protective covers, it is necessary to replace a spherical support and its protective cover.
  3. Grasp each of forward wheels for forward and back edges and try to turn it a first line inside, and back outside to check existence люфта in a steering drive. If it is found люфт, check, whether weakened fastenings of the steering mechanism and hinges of steering drafts. Weakened fastenings tighten. Worn-out hinges (check at first reliability of a tightening of nuts) can be the reason of the weakened helmsmen of drafts. Additional information on system of a steering and a suspension bracket can be found in Head the Suspension bracket and a steering.

Check люфта steering

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Establish a steering wheel in the provision of rectilinear movement.
  2. Move a steering wheel here and there, watching thus forward wheels. The steering wheel can have maximum люфт 30 mm.
  3. At bigger люфте a steering wheel check drafts of a steering, the steering mechanism and люфт bearings of a forward suspension bracket.
  4. Strongly move steering drafts a hand. Spherical hinges should not have люфта, otherwise replace hinges or steering drafts.

Check of tips of steering drafts, spherical support and covers of the steering mechanism

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Shine with a lamp boots of the bottom spherical support at the left and on the right and check them on existence of damages.
  1. Shine with a lamp a boot of a tip of steering draft at the left and on the right and check it on existence of damages.
  1. In the presence of damages of boots for reasons of safety it is necessary to replace the corresponding hinge with a boot since pollution lead to hinge destruction.
  2. Strongly move steering drafts a hand in different directions. The hinge should not have люфтов. Otherwise it is necessary to replace a tip of steering draft.
  3. Check reliability of a tightening of lock-nuts of tips of steering drafts and a nut of fastening of a finger of the hinge, without rotating it.
  1. Check protective covers (3) helmsmen of the mechanism, if necessary replace them with the new.
