Check of level of liquid of the power steering


1. Unlike the steering mechanism of usual type, in the rack transfer equipped with the hydraulic booster working liquid which begins to need replacement eventually is used.

2. The tank of hydraulic liquid of the steering pump is located on the internal panel of a mudguard of an arch of the right forward wheel, i.e. in the right forward corner of a motive compartment, slightly ahead of the top support of the shock-absorber.

3. For check of level of hydraulic liquid it is necessary to establish forward wheels of the car in rectilinear situation and to kill the engine.
4. PAS tank walls on all models are made of translucent material that allows to check liquid level, without uncovering. You watch that liquid level constantly was between the corresponding top and lower marks in tank walls. In addition the cover of a jellied mouth of the tank is equipped with the measuring probe.
5. If necessary liquid is added in the tank through a mouth of the last by means of a funnel. Use only hydraulic liquid of the recommended grade.

In order to avoid hit in hydraulic system of dirt before uncovering, wipe the surface of the tank surrounding it with pure rags.

6. If need for adjustment of level of liquid arises regularly and often, check the steering pump, a case of rack transfer, and also all connecting lines of a hydraulic path of the PAS system and their nipple connections for existence of signs of leaks.
