5.14. Broad tank and sensor of level of cooling liquid



1. Fastening of a broad tank is carried out by one screw. If it is necessary to move a broad tank aside, unscrew the screw and, without disconnecting hoses from a broad tank, move it aside.
2. Disconnect two top hoses from a broad tank and, having lifted up, tie up them in this situation to reduce loss of cooling liquid.
3. Unscrew the screw, the fixing tank, and raise a tank up as far as possible.
4. Install the corresponding container under a broad tank, then remove the lower hose and merge cooling liquid from a tank in a container. Tie up the lower hose of a broad tank as above for reduction of losses of cooling liquid is possible.


1. Installation is made in the sequence, the return to removal.
2. Check level and if necessary add cooling liquid.


The sensor of level of cooling liquid is installed in a cover of a broad tank. If the sensor is faulty, it is necessary to replace it together with a cover of a broad tank.
