Survey of components of a suspension bracket and steering drive, check of a condition of protective covers of power shafts

The condition of components of a suspension bracket and steering drive should be made regularly as their wear or damage can be at the bottom of reduction of service life of tires, conduct to decrease in controllability of the car and fuel consumption increase. The detailed illustrative material is presented also in Head the Suspension bracket and a steering.

Check of a condition of shock-absorbers

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Park the car on an equal horizontal platform, whenever possible with a firm covering. Firmly cock the parking brake and check pressure of a rating of tires.
  2. Press down one of car corners. At a corner otpuskaniye the body should come back to a starting position, making no more than one-two fluctuations.
  3. Body rocking with high degree of probability testifies to wear or weakening of the corresponding shock-absorber.
  4. Repeat procedure, serially passing to the remained corners of the car.
  5. To Poddomkratta the car also establish it on props.
  1. Attentively examine shock-absorbers on existence of signs of leakages of liquid. Existence of a thin oil film should not cause concern. Without fail make sure that a source of leak is the shock-absorber, in case of need make replacement of shock-absorbers in a set (forward and back).
  1. Check reliability of fastening of shock-absorbers on the support. In case of detection of defects replace shock-absorbers (also in a set).
  2. The description of procedure of replacement of shock-absorbers is provided in Head the Suspension bracket and a steering.

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

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Visually check components of a suspension bracket and a steering drive on existence of deformations and mechanical damages. Estimate a condition of sealing cuffs, protective covers and rezinometallichesky plugs — try not to pass signs of development of leaks.




  1. Clear of dirt traces the bottom surface of a rotary fist, ask the assistant to grasp bottom edge of a wheel and to pull it in the cross-section direction. Try to estimate visually люфт in spherical support of connection of a fist with a suspension bracket control lever. At existence люфта the worn-out hinge is subject to replacement.
  1. Grasp forward and back edges of a wheel, then press on a first line and pull for the back. In case of identification люфта in joints of components of a steering drive check a condition of tips of steering drafts. Wear of external tips can be revealed visually, internal — to the touch through a protective cover of the steering mechanism (when rocking wheel). Pass to other board of the car and repeat procedure, having pulled an opposite wheel.
  1. More detailed information on a design of components of a suspension bracket is provided in Head the Suspension bracket and a steering.
  2. Having lowered the car on the earth, estimate size люфта a steering wheel. From under the car visually estimate inertness of operation of a steering drive at rotation of a steering wheel (the help of the assistant is required).

Check of a condition of wheel bearings

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Pull a forward wheel both hands at the top and bottom edges — existence a little appreciable люфта testifies to weakening / damage of the wheel bearing or suspension bracket components. Ask the assistant to squeeze out firmly a pedal of a foot brake and repeat check — if люфт will disappear, or it will be reduced to a minimum level, therefore, it is necessary to be engaged in the bearing, otherwise check a condition of knots of a joint of components of a suspension bracket.
  2. Grasp forward and back edges of a wheel and repeat the check described above — if when squeezing a brake pedal люфт disappears, it is necessary to tighten or replace the stupichny bearing, otherwise check a condition of components of a steering drive (see above Check of a condition of components of a suspension bracket and a steering drive, item 3).

Check of a condition of protective covers of power shafts

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Established since both ends of each of power shafts the goffered rubber covers are urged to protect hinges of equal angular speeds (CV JOINTS) from the destructions connected with hit of dirt in them. Oil and greasing hit on a surface of covers can lead to their premature destruction. It is expedient to wash out from time to time covers solution of soap water. In view of a constant flexure at turns of wheels, covers of external CV JOINTS wear out quicker and should be checked more often and more regularly.
  1. Attentively check covers on existence of cuts, cracks and other damages, estimate reliability of fixing them bandage tapes. In case of detection of defects, or traces of leakages of greasing the damaged cover is subject to replacement (see. Head Coupling and power shafts).
