Suspension bracket and steering drive


Forward suspension bracket and steering drive


1. To Poddomkratta a car front also establish it on props.
2. Make visual check of a condition of boots of spherical support and protective covers of a case of a steering rack. Replace the worn-out or allowing leaks covers — hit in boots of dirt or moisture conducts to acceleration of wear of spherical support and components of reechny transfer.
3. On the models equipped with system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel, check a condition of hoses of PAS. Examine on existence of signs of leaks shtutserny connections of hydraulic lines and covers of a case of the steering mechanism. Podtekaniye of oil through protective covers at pressure increase in a case of a steering rack usually testifies to wear of epiploons.

4. Grasp a forward wheel of the car in points on 12 both at 6 o'clock and sharply pull it. Existence slightest appreciable люфта demands carrying out investigation of the reasons of its emergence. 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, therefore, wear of stupichny bearings takes place. Otherwise it is necessary to check 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 wear of stupichny bearings. The second possible reason of a weak point is wear of tips of steering drafts. At wear of external tips usually takes place visual люфт wheels. For an assessment of degree of wear of the hinge of an internal tip put a hand on a protective cover of a case of the reechny transfer, the second hand grasp draft. If now to pull a wheel, it will be possible to feel люфт in the worn-out hinge.
6. By means of mount or a big screw-driver estimate degree of wear of plugs of support of a suspension bracket: get the lever between the corresponding component and its reference point. Existence small люфта quite naturally also speaks elasticity of rubber inserts, however the excessive weak point testifies to wear 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, gaps, signs of aging 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 response of operated wheels to rotation of a steering wheel (люфт) should be very insignificant, and in an ideal to be absent at all. Otherwise check a condition of hinges and support of components of a suspension bracket and a steering drive (see above). Estimate degree of wear of kardanny hinges of a steering column, and also components of actually reechny transfer.

Check of a condition of hydraulic racks of a suspension bracket


1. Check racks on existence of traces of leakages of hydraulic liquid on the case, a rubber boot and through a piston rod. Leaks testify to internal defect of assembly and need of carrying out its replacement.
2. Check a condition and reliability of fastening of all hydraulic tubes and hoses. In case of identification of the slightest traces of leakages of liquid immediately try to reveal their source and to eliminate the reason. The description of procedures of replacement of hydraulic tubes and hoses is provided in Head Uniform hydraulic system.
3. Check also external condition of hydraulic valves and sockets.
4. In the presence of suspicions on violation of serviceability of functioning of hydraulic system immediately address for the help to experts.
