Poddomkrachivaniye 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 any other repair or preventive work the car should be lifted by means of hydraulic (or telezhechny) a jack and it is obligatory to establish on the special props got under bearing points of the bottom. If need for removal of wheels is absent, the car can be tired out on a viewing hole or a platform.

For a poddomkrachivaniye the car should be parked on an equal horizontal surface, whenever possible with a firm covering. In the presence of the slightest bias it is necessary will take care of precautionary measures against kickback: prop up located on a diagonal from a subject to removal a wheel protivootkatny boots, firmly cock the parking brake and transfer the selector lever to the situation "R". Try not to depart far from the poddomkrachenny car, especially if nearby there are children.
Before поддомкрачивать the car, remove a decorative cap and a ballonny key weaken nuts of fastening of a wheel subject to replacement. Prepare запаску.

On some models the cap fastens on a disk wheel nuts which at this stage should be weakened only!

Get a jack under the car. Take care of reliability of gearing of a head of a jack. Rotating the jack handle, lift the car so that the wheel subject to replacement came off the earth. Having thrown off fixing nuts, remove a wheel and establish on its place spare. Screw wheel nuts, then lower the car on the earth, clean a jack and hold on nuts 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 clean protivootkatny boots.
At carrying out more serious, than replacement of a wheel, repair work under the car, besides a jack, are usually got special props.

At all do not get a jack under car thresholds, the pallet of a case, the panel of a floor or it is direct under components of a steering drive or a suspension bracket!

Do not perform any repair works under the car fixed in lifted situation by means of only one jack! Surely use reliable props!


Strictly speaking, the emergency vehicle should be towed with the driving (forward) wheels torn off from the earth (best of all in general on a wrecker platform). In emergency situations car towage for towing eyes is authorized. If it is necessary to make car towage without a separation of lobbies or back wheels, disconnect the corresponding driveshaft from assembly of differential of the bridge, transfer the selector lever to neutral situation, and the switch of interaxal differential – in the situation OFF (Otkl.).

If the car is towed with a separation from the earth of back wheels, lobbies should be blocked in rectilinear situation by means of the special adaptation, and the ignition key should be turned in the situation ACC or ON in order to avoid damage of the lock of blocking of a wheel. At the corresponding complete set disconnect naves of free rotation.

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 to bearing body elements, and in which case not for a bumper.

Do not forget to turn a key in the lock of ignition of the towed car in the situation ACC or ON, otherwise inevitably there will be a blocking of 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 power steering (GUR), at maneuvering performance the bigger effort should be put as well to a steering wheel.

The driver of a towed vehicle should try to hold constantly a towing sling in the tense situation in order to avoid breakthroughs and arrivals on it wheels.

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

Movement should be carried out only with moderate speeds, on the shortest route and observance of traffic regulations. Avoid sharp braking, accelerations and maneuvering.
