The general information

The car body is fixed on the bent frame of a ladder design.

Principles of the organisation of a suspension bracket and steering drive are in detail described in Sections the Estimation of a condition of components of a suspension bracket and a steering drive, the Back suspension bracket and Removal of air from a working path of system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel accordingly.

At performance of repair or service of components of a suspension bracket and a steering often there are problems with отпусканием "the become attached" bolts and nuts. Located under the bottom of the car fixture elements constantly are exposed to external influences and there is nothing surprising that in due course they begin коррозировать and partially to collapse. Application of a brute force at отпускании such "become attached" fixture it is interfaced to risk of its damage. To begin with moisten not giving in отворачиванию an element with a small amount of a special getting liquid (a liquid key), having allowed last to impregnate a rust layer properly. A wire brush remove external adjournment from accessible sites of carving surfaces. Sometimes sharp blow by a hammer on a nut through выколотку helps to destroy a rust filling backlashes between coils of a carving joint, - try not to admit carving damage as a result соскакивания выколотки. Use at отворачивании "the become attached" fixture long воротка allows to increase considerably a put twisting moment, however it is necessary to remember that application of extension pieces complete with drives of ratchet type is interfaced to risk of failure of the returnable mechanism, not to mention possibility of reception of a trauma.

Damaged in process отпускания the fixture is subject to replacement without fail.

As the majority of procedures described in the present chapter is made with a separation of the car from the earth, it is necessary to take care beforehand of variants of reliable fixing of a vehicle in the lifted position, - prepare strong props. For поддомкрачивания the car use hydraulic jacks подкатного type, - remember that the onboard jack entering into a standard complete set is intended only for time поддомкрачивания the car at replacement of the failed wheel. The hydraulic jack can be used also for posting of separate components of a suspension bracket at performance of this or that procedure.

Under no circumstances do not perform any works under the car kept in lifted position only by means of a jack (ов)!
