1.14. Adjustment of height of a back suspension bracket


Adjustment of height of a back suspension bracket provides possibility at various level of load of the car behind including at driving with trailer, to support height approximately at constant level and considerably improves passableness of the car.

Manual adjustment is made by means of the automobile pump or the compressor. The nipple of the pumping-up device is on the right side of a luggage compartment.

At full loading for reasons of safety it is forbidden to go by the maximum superfluous pressure.

At a full load of the car pressure in the device should correspond to the minimum value of 300 kPas (the 3rd bar). By no means pressure should not be below base value of 80 kPas (0,8 bar). Pressure is necessary for supervising periodically.

1. Not loaded car establish on an equal horizontal platform. Fill the device with pressure of 80 kPas (0,8 bar). Measure height of a rear bumper over earth level, subtract from the received value of 5 cm and write down it.
2. If when loading car this size becomes less, increase pressure before achievement of former value. Do not lift pressure above a mark of 500 kPas (the 5th bar).
3. Before a trip on not loaded car surely reduce pressure to 80 kPas (0,8 bar).
