Poddomkrachivaniye and towage
PoddomkrachivaniyeThe automobile jack is in an additional compartment under a trunk floor, near a spare wheel.
For the translation of a jack into position take it from the luggage compartment, wring out up and turn to the right against the stop a driving neck.
Before laying of a jack to the luggage compartment bring it to a transport state: develop a persistent finger to a jack support, wring out a neck up and turn to the left against the stop.
The heel of a jack should be rested against a plain and firm surface. At friable soil use a special lining (in winter season it is useful to have a piece of a wide board in the car).
Park the car on the flat horizontal platform, whenever possible with a hard coating.
Firmly cock the parking brake.
At the corresponding complete set transfer the AT selector lever to situation "P".
Take from a luggage carrier the necessary tool (a jack, a balloon key) and a spare wheel (see the Head the Operation manual). Make assembly of a two-section balloon key.
At the corresponding complete set take off a protective cap of a disk, then weaken bolts of fastening of wheels.
Rotating a driving neck, achieve a full separation of the wheel which is subject to replacement from the earth.
Put the failed wheel and the tool on the regular places in the luggage compartment of the car.
TowageTransportation of the emergency car on a tow truck platform.
For loading of the emergency vehicle on the tow truck towing eyes can be used, - at the corresponding complete set do not forget to transfer the AT selector lever to situation "N".
Fastening of the car is made only on wheels/disks.
Towage of the emergency carStrictly speaking, the emergency car should be towed with the driving (back) wheels which are torn off from the earth (even better - on a tow truck platform).
Models with ATThe cars equipped with AT can be towed by the forward course on all four wheels with a speed which is not exceeding 50 km/h and on distance no more than 50 km.
Before towage check the level of transmission liquid (see the Section Check of the ATF Level, replacement of the AT filter of the Head Routine maintenance), - at the insufficient ATF level, it is necessary to make necessary adjustment, or to tow the car only with the driving wheels which are torn off from the earth.
All modelsUse the towing cable which is only specially intended for this purpose at towage of the emergency vehicle. Use of modern synthetic materials allowed to market towing cables of the elastic design minimizing danger of breaks as a result of hit of a sling under wheels of the towed car.
The towing element (cable/bar) has to cling only to a special towing eye, - at all not to a bumper or elements of a suspension bracket.
At control of the towed vehicle you watch that during the movement the cable constantly remained tense, - manipulating a foot brake, try not to allow sharp breakthroughs and arrivals on a proslablenny cable.
Do not forget to turn a key in the lock of ignition of the towed car in position of ON, otherwise inevitably there will be a blocking of a steering column. Besides, at the included ignition also indexes of turns and stoplights are activated.
Remember that at the switched-off engine efficiency of braking of the car considerably decreases because the vacuum amplifier of brakes ceases to function. At the same time it is necessary to squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake with much big, than usually by effort. On the models equipped with the power steering when performing maneuvering the bigger effort should be put to a steering wheel.
Before a start of motion drivers of both vehicles (towing and towed) should coordinate among themselves a route.
The movement has to be carried out only with moderate speeds, along the shortest route and observance of traffic regulations. Avoid sharp braking, accelerations and maneuvering. Remember that at towage of the car on the region of the dirt road there is always a danger of demolition on a roadside.
Towage for the purpose of start of the engineBefore starting start of the engine by method of towage of the car, it is necessary whenever possible to try to use the auxiliary power supply.
Models with RKPPTowage for the purpose of start of the engine has to be made at the connected rechargeable battery and turned in the lock situation 2 by the ignition key.
Start of the engine by method of pushing or towage has to be made only at the cold engine and the catalytic converter. Avoid repeated long attempts of start.
Models with ATStart of the engine of the equipped AT by method of towage or pushing is not possible, - in case of need use the auxiliary power supply.
