Poddomkrachivaniye and towage

Poddomkrachivaniye

The jack which is included in a basic equipment of the car is intended only for performing procedures of change of wheels. When carrying out any other repair or scheduled maintenance the car should be lifted by means of hydraulic (or cart) a jack and it is obligatory to establish on the special props got under the bearing bottom points. If need for removal of wheels is absent, the car can be tired out on a viewing hole or a platform.

For a poddomkrachivaniye the car should be parked on a plain horizontal surface, whenever possible with a hard coating. In the presence of the slightest bias it is necessary will take care of precautionary measures against kickback. Try not to depart far from the poddomkrachenny car, especially if nearby there are children.

Before starting a poddomkrachivaniye of a front of the car do not forget to cock the parking brake firmly. At a poddomkrachivaniye of a back it is necessary to prop up wedges forward wheels and to include the first transfer.

The jack should be brought to the strengthened points which are specially intended for this purpose in a forward or back part of thresholds (points are marked with the special signs applied on the panel of each of thresholds). Between a head of a jack and the panel of a threshold for distribution of loading it is better to lay wooden whetstone with a special groove. Put on whetstone a groove an edge of the panel of a threshold and prop up from below a jack head.

When carrying out more serious than changing a wheel of repair work under the car, besides a jack, special props are usually got. Props can be established under actually domkratny points of thresholds with making of the same whetstone with a groove, or under any of the bearing bottom elements as it is possible closer to domkratny points of thresholds.


Do not get a jack under other points of thresholds, the pallet of a case, panels of a floor or directly under components of the steering drive or a suspension bracket at all!
Do not perform any repair work under the car, the lifted situation fixed in by means of only one jack! Surely use props!


Towage


For movement of the faulty car of a long distance it is necessary to address to evacuation service. If the point of appointment is not too far, the car can be towed off by means of any other vehicle with observance of necessary precautionary measures:

· Use at towage of the emergency vehicle the towing sling which is only specially intended for this purpose which can be got cheap practically in any shop of automobile accessories. On back glass of the towed car the alarm plate of the corresponding content has to be established.
· Do not forget to turn a key in the lock of ignition of the towed car in position of ON, otherwise inevitably there will be a blocking of a steering column. Besides, at the included ignition also indexes of turns and stoplights are activated.
· The back towing eye on the Skoda Felicia cars is covered with a decorative cover and located under an overlay of a bumper. The removable forward eye is stored together with tools in a well of a spare wheel, is equipped with the left carving and is rolled in a special opening near forward registration plate.


· Before towage do not forget to release the parking brake and to transfer the transmission to neutral situation.
· Remember that at the switched-off engine efficiency of braking of the car considerably decreases because the amplifier of brakes ceases to function. At the same time it is necessary to squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake with a little big, than usually by effort.
· On the models equipped with the power steering when performing maneuvering bigger effort it is necessary to put to a steering wheel.
· The driver of the towed vehicle has to try to hold constantly a towing sling tense in order to avoid breakthroughs and arrivals on a sling by wheels.
· 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 only with moderate speeds and along the shortest route. Avoid sharp braking, accelerations and maneuvering.
