At each maintenance of the car check a condition of a protective cover 15 (see fig. 5.1), caps of 8 hinges of drafts and density of their landing. They need to be replaced in the presence of cracks, gaps and other defects breaking their tightness.
Make sure that at the rectilinear provision of wheels of the car the spoke of a steering wheel settles down horizontally. Otherwise define a cause of defect and eliminate it.
Turning for a steering wheel from an emphasis against the stop, check visually and aurally:
– reliability of fastening of the steering mechanism and steering wheel;
– whether there is no gap in rubber-metal hinges 23, in hinges of 1 steering drafts and in rivet and shlitsevy connections of the elastic coupling of a shaft of a wheel;
– reliability of an inhaling and latching of bolts of the 10th fastening of thirsts for a lath and nuts of fingers of spherical hinges 1;
– whether there are no jammings and hindrances interfering turn of a steering wheel.
If knocks and jammings are found, disconnect cross drafts from rotary levers of telescopic racks of a suspension bracket and repeat check. Having convinced that knocks and jammings proceed from steering, remove it from the car and check gap size between an emphasis of a lath and a nut (see the head "Check of a gap between an emphasis of a lath and a nut").
The most admissible gap between an emphasis and a nut of 0,2 mm. If necessary replace worn-out details and adjust a gap between an emphasis and a nut.
