Poddomkrachivanie/posting and emergency transportation of the car

Поддомкрачивание by means of a regular jack at change of wheels

The regular jack is intended only for short-term lifting of the car at wheel replacement; before performance of any works under the car it is necessary to establish it on special props!

The spare wheel, jack and key for wheel nuts are stored in a luggage space.

Branch for tools
1 — the Spare wheel
2 — the Bag with tools
3 — the jack Handle
4 — the Jack
5 — the Key for wheel nuts


  1. For access to branch for tools lift a cover. The lifted cover can be fixed by means of a hook located on its bottom party.
  1. Park the car on an equal horizontal platform, whenever possible with a firm covering.
  2. Cock a lay brake and establish selector AT lever in position P.
  3. In case of need expose a sign on an emergency stop.
  4. Prop up противооткатными boots a wheel located on a diagonal from subject replacement.

At procedure performance on a bias it is necessary to enclose boots under both wheels of a serviceable axis from outside descent.

  1. Prepare the necessary tool (a jack, баллонный a key) and a spare wheel.
  2. At a corresponding complete set remove a protective cap of a disk, then give nuts of fastening of the failed wheel.
  1. Get a jack head under a corresponding point, - track, that the jack settled down strictly vertically, and its heel rested all surface against a ground, - at a friable ground enclose under a heel a suitable lining (it is useful to have a piece of a wide board in the car in the winter). Watch as well that the groove in a jack head has entered into corresponding cuts in a car threshold.

Without dependence from presence of a bias the jack always should occupy strictly vertical position!

  1. Working as the jack handle, raise the car, - the damaged wheel should come off the earth completely.
  2. Turn out wheel nuts and make wheel replacement.
  3. Check up pressure of a rating of the established wheel, in case of need make corresponding updating (Specifications to the Head Controls and operation receptions see).
  4. Clean the removed wheel and the tool on the regular places.
  1. In summary in regular intervals tighten wheel nuts in a diagonal order with effort of 103 Nanometers.

Car posting

For car posting the lift with four paws resting against reference points for a screw jack (see an illustration) is used.
At lift installation the special lining is used.

Lift paws should be centered concerning reference points on a longitudinal axis of the car (to the left and to the right), and for alignment of the lift concerning a cross-section axis of the car it is necessary to adhere to the following sequence:

  1. Level edges of a rubber overlay on a paw of the lift with bottom edges (A) a special lining;
  2. Level an upper edge (B) a special lining with forward cut in an installation site of a screw jack;
  3. Clean linings.

Transportation of the emergency car

Transportation on a platform эвакуатора
Most reasonably to transport the emergency car on эвакуаторе. Such transportation of all-wheel drive cars can be made only with a separation of all wheels from the earth: or a method of full loading of the faulty car on a platform эвакуатора,

Or having placed one axis on a pendant shelf эвакуатора, and other axis – on the special cart.

Thus the lay brake should be released.
For fastening of an emergency vehicle on a platform эвакуатора it is necessary to use fixing eyes.

Do not use for this purpose towing eyes.



  1. If to avoid towage it is not possible, it is the most reasonable to make it on rigid сцепке.
  2. Before the towage beginning on the emergency car it is necessary to turn the ignition key in position ACC or ON, to translate selector AT lever in position N and to release a lay brake.
  1. (A cable or a bar) it is necessary to hook on a towing element only for a special towing eye, but at all for a bumper or suspension bracket elements.
  1. At towage on flexible сцепке use only cable specially intended for this purpose. Application of modern synthetic materials has allowed to adjust release of towing cables of the elastic design reducing to a minimum danger of breakages as a result of hit of a sling under wheels of the towed car.
  2. The driver of the towing car should try to move in regular as more as possible intervals, smoothly releasing coupling at a gear change and, especially, at трогании from a place.
  3. At management of a towed vehicle watch, that during movement the cable constantly remained tense, try not to suppose sharp jerks and arrivals on прослабленный a cable.
  4. Remember that at the switched off engine efficiency of braking of the car considerably decreases because the vacuum amplifier of brakes ceases to function. Thus it is necessary to squeeze out a pedal of a working brake with much big, than usually effort; at maneuvering performance большее the effort should be put also to a steering wheel since the pump of the amplifier of a steering also will not function.
  5. Before a start of motion drivers of both vehicles (towing and towed) should co-ordinate among themselves a route.
  6. Movement should be carried out on the shortest route, with a speed no more than 50 km/h, on distance no more than 50 km and with observance ПДД. Avoid sharp braking, accelerations and superfluous maneuvering. Remember that at car towage on dirt road edge always there is a danger of a pulling down on a roadside.
  7. Before the towage beginning check up level трансмиссионной liquids (see the Head of Adjustment and car routine maintenance), - at insufficient level ATF, it is necessary to modify it, or to tow the car only with the driving wheels torn off from the earth.

Towage for the purpose of engine start

Start of the engine of the cars equipped АТ, a towage or pushing method is not obviously possible, - in case of need use the auxiliary power supply.
