Poddomkrachivaniye and towage


 If need for removal of wheels is absent, the car can be tired out on a viewing hole or a platform.

The jack which is included in the standard package of the car is intended only for performance of procedures of change of wheels. When carrying out any other repair or scheduled maintenance the car should be lifted by means of hydraulic (or cart) a jack and it is obligatory to establish on the special props got under the bearing bottom points (regular domkratny points).

Do not get a jack under car thresholds, the pallet of a case, the panel of a floor or directly under components of the steering drive or a suspension bracket at all! Do not perform any repair work under the car fixed in the lifted situation by means of only one jack! Surely use reliable props!

The scheme of an arrangement of points of a poddomkrachivaniye of the car is given on illustrations below.



For a poddomkrachivaniye it is necessary to park the car on an equal horizontal surface, whenever possible with a hard coating. In the presence of the slightest bias it is necessary to take care of precautionary measures against kickback: prop up the wheel located on a diagonal from a subject to removal by antiretractable boots), firmly cock the parking brake, include a reverse gear (RKPP), or transfer the selector lever to situation "P" (AT). Try not to depart far from the poddomkrachenny car, especially if nearby there are children.


When performing change of wheels before poddomkrachivat the car, take off a decorative cap and a wheel wrench weaken nuts of fastening of the wheel which is subject to replacement. Prepare a zapaska.

 On some models the cap fastens on a disk wheel nuts which at this stage should be weakened only!

The scheme of an arrangement of a spare wheel and jack in a luggage compartment of the car is shown on illustrations 36 and 37. The spare wheel fastens in a special niche under the panel of a floor of a luggage compartment, the jack is fixed in the special pocket equipped with a cover in the right lateral panel of finishing, also the wheel wrench is usually stored in the same place. For extraction of a spare wheel it is necessary to turn out the special fixing screw.

 On the Outback models the spare wheel is equipped with the special holder serving for simplification of procedure of its extraction from a niche, - do not forget to dismantle a holder and to rearrange it on the removed punched wheel.

For extraction of a jack open a cover of a side pocket, then, rotating counterclockwise, release the jack screw.

Get a jack under the car. Take care of reliability of input of a head of a jack in gearing. Rotating the jack handle, lift the car so that the wheel which is subject to replacement came off the earth. Having thrown off fixing nuts, remove a wheel and establish on its place spare, previously having cleared a nave and an internal surface of a rim of dirt. Screw wheel nuts, then lower the car on the earth, clean a jack and hold on nuts of fastening of a wheel in a diagonal order with the demanded effort (78 ÷ 98 Nanometers). Establish into place a cap. Put and remove the tool. Do not forget to clean antiretractable boots. Track reliability of fixing of the wheel removed from the car.

At a car poddomkrachivaniye for the purpose of its fixing in the lifted situation when performing more serious, than replacing a wheel, repair work the head of a hydraulic jack should be got under a forward stretcher or a case of differential of a back axis. For the purpose of distribution of loading between a head of a jack and a surface of a domkratny point it makes sense to lay the wooden block. Props are got under regular lobbies and back lateral domkratny points.


Strictly speaking, the emergency vehicle equipped with the full drive (AWD) the automatic transmission (AT) and VTD should be towed with a full separation of wheels from the earth on a wrecker platform.

 Towage of all-wheel drive (AWD) models with a separation from the earth only of lobbies or back wheels can lead to that the car owing to rotation of interaxal differential will make an involuntary turn, besides, at such towage load of differential that is fraught with premature wear of internal components of the last considerably raises!

As it was already told above, it is best of all to carry out transportation of the failed 4WD-car with a full separation of wheels from the earth. At installation of the car on a platform of the wrecker it is necessary to include the first transfer (models with RKPP) / or to transfer the selector lever to situation "P" (models from AT), to cock the parking brake and it is reliable to fix safety chains. Watch that chains were not tense too strongly as it will lead to excessive compression of elements of a suspension bracket and it is fraught with destruction of the last when jolting during the movement. Schemes of breaking-out of the car on a platform and admissible corners of extension of safety chains are submitted on illustrations.

 Transportation of the car with the failed transmission has to be made only with a full separation of wheels from the earth on a wrecker platform!

It is in urgent cases allowed to make towage of the emergency vehicle without separation from the earth of all four wheels.

 Make sure that the towing car is heavier towed.

Use the towing sling which is only specially intended for this purpose which can practically be got cheap in any shop of automobile accessories at towage. The sling has to cling only to the eyes which are specially intended for this purpose which should not be confused to safety brackets at all.


 Do not make towage of emergency vehicles a backing.

Do not forget to turn a key in the lock of ignition of the towed car in the situation ON, otherwise inevitably there will be a blocking of a steering column. Besides, at the included ignition also indexes of turns and stoplights are activated.
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 foot brake with a little big, than usually by effort. On the models equipped with the power steering when performing maneuvering the bigger effort should be put also to a steering wheel.

The driver of the towed vehicle has to try to hold constantly a towing sling in the tense situation in order to avoid breakthroughs and accidents of running-down him wheels.

Before a start of motion drivers of both vehicles (towing and towed) should coordinate among themselves a route.

The movement has to be carried out only with moderate speeds, along the shortest route and observance of traffic regulations. Avoid sharp braking, accelerations and maneuvering.
