Prevention

Before definition of malfunction of a suspension bracket or steering check pressure in tires, lack of a podtormozhivaniye of wheels and that on the car identical tires are installed.


The car takes away in one party

• The tire is faulty.
• Strong wear of elements of a suspension bracket or steering.
• The angles of installation of forward wheels are incorrectly adjusted.
• Accident damage of an element of steering and suspension bracket.

Beating and vibration of a wheel

• Forward wheels are not balanced. At the same time vibration is felt on a steering wheel.
• Back wheels are not balanced. At the same time vibration is transferred to all car.
• Damage or deformation of wheels.
• Damage or deformation of the tire.
• Wear of spherical hinges, plugs or elements of steering or forward suspension bracket.
• Bolts of fastening of wheels are weakened.

When braking and on turns the loud scratch appears

• Shock-absorbers are faulty.
• The spring of a suspension bracket is damaged or sank or suspension bracket elements are faulty.
• Damage of the stabilizer of cross stability or elements of its fastening.

The car takes away in different directions

• The angles of installation of forward wheels are incorrectly adjusted.
• Wear of spherical hinges, plugs or elements of steering or forward suspension bracket.
• Wheels are not balanced.
• Damage of tires.
• Bolts of fastening of wheels weakened.
• Shock-absorbers are faulty.

Hard steering

• The spherical hinge of steering or the spherical hinge of a suspension bracket is jammed.
• Damage or the wrong adjustment of a tension of an auxiliary driving belt on models with the amplifier of steering.
• The angles of installation of forward wheels are incorrectly adjusted.
• Steering draft or steering transfer are damaged.

Side play in steering.

• The elastic coupling of a steering shaft and steering transfer is worn-out.
• Spherical hinges of steering drafts are worn-out.
• Steering transfer is worn-out.
• Spherical hinges of the plug and elements of steering or a suspension bracket are worn-out.

Efficiency of the amplifier of steering is reduced

• Damage or the wrong adjustment of a tension of an auxiliary driving belt on models with the amplifier of steering.
• Low level of liquid in the amplifier of steering.
• Hoses in hydraulic system of the amplifier of steering are hammered.
• The pump of the amplifier of steering is faulty.
• Steering transfer is faulty.

Strong wear of tires

Strong wear at the edges of a tire protector

• Low pressure in tires. At the same time tires wear out from two parties equally.
• Disorder or a corner of a longitudinal inclination of an axis of turn of a wheel are incorrectly adjusted. At the same time the tire only on the one hand wears out.
• Spherical hinges of the plug and elements of steering or a suspension bracket are worn-out.
• Accident damage of an element of steering and suspension bracket.

Razlokhmachivany side surface of a protector

• The convergence of wheels is incorrectly adjusted.

Wear in the center of a protector

• Pressure in tires is higher than norm.

Uneven wear of tires

• Wheels are not balanced.
• Shock-absorbers are worn-out.
• The tire is damaged.
