Tank arrangement with liquid for the amplifier of steering


The probe for measurement of level of liquid in the amplifier of steering


Liquid level in the amplifier of steering can be checked in a cold state or heated at operation (" 50 °C). It is offered to check liquid level in the amplifier of steering in a cold state.

On the car which was not operated at the switched-off engine establish forward wheels for the movement directly forward.
PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Unscrew a cover from a tank of the amplifier of steering.
2. Wipe with pure rags the probe which is in the lower part of a cover.
3. Screw and again unscrew a cover.
4. Check the liquid level which has to be about MIN tag (see rice. The probe for measurement of level of liquid in the amplifier of steering). A liquid level tolerance on the probe from MIN tag ± 2 mm.
If necessary add fresh liquid.
Do not allow a state at which the tank of the amplifier of steering will be empty.
5. Screw up a cover on a tank of the amplifier of steering.
6. Make a control trip at which liquid of the amplifier of steering will get warm up to the temperature about 50 °C. Check the liquid level which has to be between tags of MIN and MAX.
