Places of raising of the car

  • Before a car raising on the elevator, always estimate it on equilibrium state.
  • Balance of the car can be broken depending on spare parts which have to be removed.
  • Before a car raising, check that paws of the elevator did not touch brake, fuel pipelines, arms or other parts.
  • When using the frame elevator, you make a pull (elevator paws from the left and right parties are symmetrically rather central axis of the car). Lift the car until wheels slightly come off the earth, and make sure that it will not fall by its rocking extensively. Work can be begun only after successful passing of check.
  • Do not forget to fix the elevator, after a car raising.

Use of the elevator

1 — a forward point of rise
2 — a back point of rise
3 — in front of the car

When lifting a forward or back part of the car on a jack, establish a jack strictly on the center of a stretcher of a forward suspension bracket or the back bridge respectively.

  • Never lift the car on a jack for suspension bracket details (i.e. the stabilizer etc.) or for the bottom, they can be deformed.
  • When lifting only of a forward or back part of the car, for safety, check that the wheels standing on the earth are blocked.
  • After the car is lifted, fix it retaining racks. It is very dangerous to carry out any works on the car lifted on a jack.

Use of a floor jack

1 — a forward suspension bracket
2 — a case of the back bridge

For performance of work with the forward or back parts of the car lifted on a jack establish props under a stretcher so that the body was reliably supported. Then, for safety, make sure that the frame of the chassis will not move down from struts and that the car is rigidly supported.
