Check of level of liquid of system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel

1 Periodically check liquid level in system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel in order to avoid emergence of problems with management of the car, such, as damage of the steering pump. Act as follows.

Do not hold a steering wheel turned against the stop in this or that party more than five seconds. It can put out of action the steering pump.


2 Tank of system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel is located in an impellent compartment and has an unscrewing cover with built in in it measuring the shchupy.

Model 320d: The cover of the tank of oil (the shooter on an illustration) is before the index of level of oil, at a look in the movement direction.

Petrol models: The tank is in the area between the engine and a radiator.


3 Park the car on an equal platform and cock the parking brake.

4 On the cold engine level of liquid should be about MIN label. A tolerance of level of liquid on щупе from MIN label ±2 mm.


5 Start the engine and warm up it to normal temperature. With the engine idling turn a steering wheel from an emphasis against the stop several times to remove air from steering system. Switch off the engine, uncover the tank, having turned it counter-clockwise, wipe measuring щуп dry and close a cover. Again open a cover and check liquid level. It should be between two labels.
6 Add liquid small doses while it will not reach the necessary level.

Do not allow a liquid modulation. If it nevertheless happened, remove surpluses with a pure syringe. Close a cover.


7 If the frequent dolivaniye of liquid is required, check hoses and shtutserny connections of system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel on existence of signs of wear and leaks (address to the Section Check of a condition and replacement of hoses of an impellent compartment).
8 Check a condition and a tension of a driving belt (address to the Section Check of a condition of driving ridge belts).
