1.6. Poddomkrachivaniye / posting and emergency transportation of the car

The regular jack is intended only for short-term raising of the car when replacing a wheel; before performance of any works under the car it is necessary to establish it on special props!

The spare wheel, jack, forward towing bracket and tools are stored in the hatch of the luggage compartment. The handle of a jack lies in a bag about a spare wheel. For access to the hatch of a luggage carrier lift a cover. The lifted cover can be fixed for the upper edge of a wall of a luggage carrier by means of the hook located on it.


  1. Park the car on the flat horizontal platform, whenever possible with a hard coating.
  2. Cock the parking brake and install the AT selector lever in situation "P" (on models with AT) or turn on the first or reverse gear (on models with RKPP).
  3. In case of need turn on the alarm system and expose a sign of an emergency stop.
  4. Prop up antiretractable boots the wheel located on diagonal from a subject to replacement.

At implementation of the procedure on a bias it is necessary to enclose boots under both wheels of a serviceable axis from descent.

  1. Prepare the necessary tool (a jack, a balloon key) and a spare wheel.
  2. At the corresponding complete set take off a protective cap of a disk, then give bolts of fastening of the failed wheel.
Points of a poddomkrachivaniye and installation of safety support.
  1. Get a jack head under the corresponding point under a threshold beam, - track that the jack settled down strictly vertically, and his heel rested all the surface against soil, – at friable soil enclose a suitable lining under a heel (it is useful to have a piece of a wide board in the car in the winter). You watch as well that the groove in a head of a jack entered the corresponding cuts in a car threshold.

Regardless of existence of a bias the jack always has to hold strictly vertical position!

  1. Working with the jack handle, raise the car, – the damaged wheel has to come off the earth completely.
  2. Turn out wheel bolts and make replacement of a wheel.
Points of installation of lifting devices.
  1. Check pressure of a rating of the established wheel, in case of need make the corresponding adjustment.
  2. Remove the removed wheel and the tool on the regular places.
  3. In conclusion evenly tighten wheel bolts in a diagonal order ("star") with effort of 110 N • m.

Posting of the car

For posting of the car the elevator with four paws resting against reference points for a screw jack or the garage elevator which can be installed both on the same points, and under a forward stretcher of the car or under the platform of the back towing device is used.

Transportation of the emergency car

Transportation on a tow truck platform

It is the most reasonable to transport the emergency car on the tow truck. Such transportation can be made:

For fastening of the emergency vehicle on a platform of the tow truck it is necessary to use towing eyes.

When transporting the car with the sports chassis on a platform of the tow truck you watch to damaging body elements.


Start of the engine by method of towage is impossible, for start use the auxiliary battery.

The forward eye for fastening of a towing cable is stored together with a spare wheel in the hatch of the luggage compartment. For installation of a forward eye remove a plastic cover from a fixing opening and reliably screw in it an eye.

Installation of a forward towing eye

For this purpose it is possible to use a key for wheel bolts. Do not leave a forward towing eye established if in it there is no need since at collision, for example, with a bolt of the sidewalk it is possible to damage a stretcher. After removal of an eye do not close its opening a cover.

The back eye is established in the center of a back of the car.

If it is not possible to avoid towage, it is the most reasonable to make it on a rigid hitch.

Back towing eye

Before towage on the emergency car it is necessary to include ignition, to establish transmission in neutral situation and to release the parking brake.

At towage on a flexible hitch use the cable which is only specially intended for this purpose. Use of modern synthetic materials allowed to market towing cables of the elastic design minimizing danger of breaks as a result of hit of a sling under wheels of the towed car.

The driver of the towing car has to try to move as much as possible evenly, smoothly releasing coupling at gear shifting and, especially, at start-off from the place.

At control of the towed vehicle you watch that during the movement the cable constantly remained tense, try not to allow sharp breakthroughs and arrivals on a proslablenny cable.

Remember that at the switched-off engine efficiency of braking of the car considerably decreases because the vacuum amplifier of brakes ceases to function. At the same time it is necessary to squeeze out a pedal of a working brake with much big, than usually, effort; when performing maneuvering the bigger effort should be put also to a steering wheel since the pump of the amplifier of steering will also not function.

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 along the shortest route. The faulty car with AT is allowed to tow with a speed no more than 50 km/h and on distance no more than 50 km. Observe traffic regulations, avoid sharp braking, accelerations and excess maneuvering. Remember that at towage of the car on the region of the dirt road there is always a danger of demolition on a roadside.

Before towage of the faulty car with AT check the level of transmission liquid (see the Head Nastroyki and routine maintenance of the car), – at the insufficient ATF level, it is necessary to modify it, or to tow the car only with the driving wheels which are torn off from the earth.
