Check and leaving
1 Care of the battery is very important procedure, allowing to avoid stops in a way because of its discharge. Performance of procedure of service needs some tools. On cars with the 4-cylinder petrol engine the battery settles down in an impellent compartment, on cars with the diesel and 6-cylinder petrol engine the battery settles down in a luggage carrier behind on the right under a cover.
2 Before the beginning of procedure of service always at first switch off the engine and disconnect all electrodevices, then disconnect a negative wire from the battery.
3 your car is equipped with the battery which is not demanding leaving. It is possible to remove covers a banok and to add the distilled water. Some models can be equipped with the batteries which not are not demanding leaving which are completely sealed.
4 Remove covers and check electrolit level in each of a battery banok. It should be above plates. Usually on everyone bank there is a level index. If level of electrolit is lower than norm, add only the distilled water and then close covers a banok.
5 If the positive plug and a collar of a wire of the battery of your car are equipped with a rubber protector, make sure that it is not torn and not damaged. It should close the plug completely.
6 It is necessary to examine periodically an external condition of the battery on existence of such damages, as cracks in the case.
7 Check reliability of a tightening of collars of wires of the battery, providing good electric connection. Check each of wires on all length on existence of cracks and attritions of isolation and wires.
8 At detection of traces of corrosion (usually representing a friable raid of white color) disconnect wires from plugs, smooth out them a special brush and again connect. Emergence of corrosion can be minimized by installation of specially processed washers which are available on sale in shops of auto parts, or by drawing on plugs and collars of wires of a layer of acid-free vaseline or suitable greasing after their connection.
9 Make sure that the pallet of the battery is in a satisfactory condition, and the bolt of a fixing collar is reliably tightened. If the battery acted in film from the pallet (address to materials of the Section Removal and installation of the storage battery), track, that in an installation time on it details or other extraneous subjects did not lie. At a latching of a fixing collar do not tighten its bolt too hardly.
10 Traces of corrosion from the pallet, cases of the battery and surrounding surfaces can be removed by means of water solution of baking soda. Put a mix with a small brush, let's to it stand and then wash away plentiful quantity at its finest.
11 Metal surfaces of the car which have undergone corrosion, it is necessary to cover with a first coat on a zinc basis and then to paint.
13 Remove all covers about a battery banok (if they are available) and close openings pure rags to prevent an electrolit spillage. Disconnect a negative wire of the battery and connect charger wires to its plugs (positive to positive, negative to negative), then turn on the charger in a network. If it has the switch, make sure that it is established in situation of “12 volts”.
14 If you use the charger with a current more than two amperes, regularly check the battery during a charging to make sure that it did not overheat. Using the slow charger, you can quietly leave the battery to be charged on all night long after regular check within the first two hours. At a charging of the batteries which are not demanding leaving, certain precautionary measures (for example, use of very nizkoamperny charger) can be demanded. On such battery can be precautionary шильдик but if it is not present, address for consultation in representation office of BMW or to the electrician from a repair truck.
15 If banks of the battery have the demountable covers, each hour within the last several hours of a charging cycle check electrolit density by means of the areometer. Inexpensive areometers are available on sale in shops of auto parts - at their application follow enclosed instructions. It is possible to consider the battery charged if within two hours indicators of density of its electrolit do not change, and the electrolit in banks freely bubbles. The electrolit density in separate banks should be almost identical. If this not so, means, one or several banok of the battery failed and it is necessary to replace them.
16 Some batteries not demanding of leaving have above built-in areometer having a window - the color indicator of degree of a charging of the battery. The usually brightly painted window means that the battery is completely charged, and dark color testifies to need of an additional charging. More exact instructions are provided in the instruction of the manufacturer of the battery.
17 If the battery is sealed and has no built-in areometer, you can check charging degree by means of connected to plugs of the battery of the digital voltmeter. Completely charged battery will show 12.6 and more than a volts.
