Steering consists of a steering wheel, a shaft of steering, the steering mechanism and cross steering drafts. The steering wheel is screwed on a shaft which conducts to the steering mechanism. Thanks to gear gearing in the steering mechanism the gear lath moves.

Each end of a gear lath is connected via the sharovy hinge to steering drafts. They transfer force from a steering wheel via hinges of steering drafts and rotary fists to forward wheels. Rack steering has to have the easy course and not have a side play from an emphasis against the stop. It is not served, but it is necessary to watch a faultless condition of sealing cuffs.

Depending on model and equipment steering can be equipped by the hydraulic amplifier. Thanks to steering with the hydraulic booster (servoupravleniye) force necessary for turn of a steering wheel is insignificant. The amplifier of steering consists of the oil pump, a compensation tank and oil pipelines. The pump is put in action through maple a belt from the engine. The pump podsasyvat oil from a compensation tank and gives under high pressure to a valve body. The body of the valve is in the steering mechanism. The valve is mechanically connected with shaft of steering and gives oil depending on turn of a wheel to the relevant party of the working cylinder. There oil presses the piston of a gear lath and supports the movement of management. At the same time the piston pushes out oil on the other side of the working cylinder on the returnable pipeline back in a compensation tank.

Always to replace the self-stopped nuts. Welding and leveling works on steering are inadmissible. At insufficient experience, and also a heavy repair it is necessary to address in a specialized workshop.
