11.2.1. Introduction


Steering of rack type, consists of a wheel, a column, in bulk with the cardan hinge, the steering mechanism, the hydraulic booster (on a part of cars) and the drafts connecting the steering mechanism to suspension bracket levers.

Steering is rack, rotation from a wheel is transmitted through the cardan hinge and the steering mechanism. Teeths of a gear wheel of the steering mechanism enter gearing with teeths of a lath which will mix up in the horizontal direction at turn of a wheel. The lath is connected to steering drafts which are in turn connected through tips to rotary levers which are executed with cases of racks of a suspension bracket at the same time. A part of cars is equipped with the power steering. In use care of steering comes down to check of level of liquid in the hydraulic booster and pump drive belt tension. However, after the considerable run fingers of tips of drafts, cardan hinges of a steering shaft and also the rubber coupling of the driveshaft wear out. These details are not under repair and are subject to replacement. Before drawing a conclusion on malfunction of steering check pressure in tires and a condition of tires. Check also a condition of the top bearings of racks of a suspension bracket, bearings of naves, and also suspension bracket details.
