Поддомкрачивание and towage


Entering into a standard complete set of the car the jack is intended only for performance of procedures of change of wheels! At carrying out of any other repair or preventive works the car should be lifted by means of hydraulic (or тележечного) a jack and it is obligatory to establish on the special props got under bearing points of the bottom. If necessity for removal of wheels is absent, the car can be tired out on a viewing hole or a platform.

Do not start the engine of the lifted car it it is dangerous!

In order to avoid serious damages of units do not get a jack under картер, a transmission or a back axis!

For поддомкрачивания the car it is necessary to cock a lay brake and, for safety, to enclose under диагонально located to поддомкрачиваемому to a corner a back wheel противооткатный a boot.

At поддомкрачивании a back corner of the car instead of a lay brake it is necessary to establish transmission on transfer.

If work is made on a slope, establish an emphasis from that party of a wheel which is more low.

Before поддомкрачивать the car, remove a decorative cap and баллонным a key ослабьте bolts of fastening of a wheel subject to replacement. Prepare запаску.

Try to establish a jack on a firm covering, in case of need try to get any firm lining with enough developed surface (for example, a board piece).

The jack should be got in strengthened points specially intended for it in a forward or back part of thresholds.

Points of installation of a jack

On models with lateral elements of furnish of thresholds before jack installation under the car bottom it is necessary to remove a furnish element, - pull for its bottom edge, develop upwards and remove.

Take care of reliability of input of a head of a jack in gearing with a ledge of an edge of rigidity of a threshold.

Special groove on a jack head

Rotating the jack handle, lift the car so that the wheel subject to replacement has come off the earth, - watch, that подпятник a jack constantly leant against the earth all surface and settled down strictly under a head. Having thrown off fixing bolts, remove a wheel and establish on its place spare. Screw wheel bolts, then lower the car on the earth, clean a jack and hold on bolts of fastening of a wheel in a diagonal order with demanded effort. Establish into place a cap. Combine and clean the tool. Do not forget to take and clean противооткатные boots.

At car fixing in the lifted position of a head of props/paws of the lift it is necessary to get in a few outside (on a car axis) домкратных points of thresholds.

Towage of an emergency vehicle

At absence in РКПП or АТ трансмиссионного oils/ATF the car should be towed only with the driving wheels torn off from the earth!

Strictly speaking, the car should be towed with the forward wheels torn off from the earth (is better in general on a platform эвакуатора). If it is necessary to make towage of the car without a separation of forward wheels, turn the ignition key in position OFF, in order to avoid damage of the lock of blocking of a wheel.

The cars equipped АТ, can be towed by a forward course on all four wheels with the speed which is not exceeding 80 km/h and on distance no more 100 km. Before the towage beginning check up level трансмиссионной liquids (see the Head of Adjustment and car routine maintenance). Make following preparatory procedures:


  1. Release a lay brake;
  2. Start the engine;
  3. Translate the selector lever in position D, then - in neutral (N);
  4. Muffle the engine;
  5. Turn the ignition key in position OFF (at all do not leave it in position LOCK).

Never tow equipped АТ the car back without a separation from the earth of forward wheels!

If there is a necessity for towage of the car equipped РКПП without a separation of wheels from the earth, do not forget to translate a control lever on neutral transfer and to release a lay brake.

Use at towage of an emergency vehicle only towing sling specially intended for this purpose which can be got cheaply practically in any shop of automobile accessories. The sling should cling only for bearing кузовные elements, - at all to a bumper. Cars considered in the present Management are equipped back and forward by towing eyes.
Towing eye in front of the car
Towing eye behind the car - models of Hetchbek
Towing eye behind the car - models Combo

For installation of a demountable forward eye it is necessary to remove preliminary established on a bumper заглушку, or to cast away a cover (depending on body type). Take from a cover stored in a niche under запаску a demountable eye and screw its carving part in a nest against the stop.

Do not forget to turn a key in the lock of ignition of the towed car in position ON, otherwise will inevitably work блокиратор a steering column. Besides, at the included ignition indexes of turns and stoplights are activated also.

Remember that at the switched off engine efficiency of braking of the car considerably decreases because the vacuum amplifier of brakes ceases to function. Thus it is necessary to squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake with a little big, than usually effort. On the models equipped with the hydraulic booster of a wheel, at maneuvering performance большее the effort should be put to a steering wheel.

At трогании from a place and a gear change the driver of a towing vehicle should give particular attention to smoothness отпускания couplings. The driver of a towed vehicle should try keep constantly a towing sling tense in order to avoid jerks and arrivals on a sling wheels, - in an ideal it is necessary to use a sling of an elastic design, and it is better - a rigid bar.

Before a start of motion drivers of both vehicles (towing and towed) should co-ordinate among themselves a route.

Movement should be carried out only with moderate speeds, on the shortest route and observance ПДД. Avoid sharp braking, accelerations and maneuvering. Remember that at car towage on a roadside or a narrow dirt road always there is a danger of a pulling down for limits проезжей parts.

On both cars external lighting devices according to ПДД should be included.
