Motor compartment



Be especially attentive at work in a motor compartment!

Switch off the engine, take out the ignition key from the lock.

Reliably tighten the parking brake.

Put the lever of gear shifting in neutral position, the selector of control of the automatic transmission – in a position "P".

Give the chance to cool down to the engine.

So far the engine keeps working temperature:

 – avoid hit of your hands in a zone of rotation of the fan of the cooling system of the engine – the fan can suddenly begin to rotate;
 – do not open a stopper of a broad tank of cooling liquid; the cooling system is under pressure.

Try not to spill any liquids on the hot engine. These liquids can will ignite.

Avoid short circuit of electric chains – especially on the rechargeable battery.

In need of holding examinations on the working engine there is an additional danger from the rotating parts for example, pulleys of maple belts, a pulley of the generator, cooling system fan etc. – and from high voltage in system of ignition.

If work on fuel system or on electric equipment is necessary:

 – always disconnect the rechargeable battery from onboard network;
 – you do not smoke near the engine;
 – never work near naked flame;
 – always you hold near at hand the fire extinguisher, ready to the use.

At a dolivka of liquids it is impossible to mix them at all, otherwise not to avoid serious violations in operation of units and systems.

In due time to find defects of consolidations, it is regularly necessary to examine the surface of that place where there is a car. If spots of oil or other liquid operational material are found, it is necessary to send the car to the service enterprise Volkswagen for identification and elimination of malfunction.
