Steering with the hydraulic booster

GENERAL INFORMATION

All Frontera cars are equipped with the steering mechanism of the screw nut type on circulating balls with the hydraulic booster. As well as other knots of the car the design of a steering changed. Concerning a steering such change was carried out for cars since 1997 of release.

All collars of fastening of hoses of hydrosystem tighten the moment of 3.5 Nanometers.

Glues and hermetics have a certain service life. Do not apply the specified substances if service life expired them.

Cables after their detachment in the course of repair should be fixed by collars again. It is not allowed to suspend cables simply.
