System of the power steering

For the cars equipped with safety cushions:

  • Service of the components "air bag" systems, adjacent systems or conducting has to be carried out only at the official dealer of Suzuki. Non-compliance with security measures can lead to inadvertent operation of system or an exit of system out of operation. Any of two circumstances can lead to personnel injuries.
  • Works can be begun not earlier than in 90 seconds after switching off of ignition and only after shutdown of the rechargeable battery. Otherwise the system can work by means of the energy which is saved up in the control and diagnostic module (CDM).

  • Some knots in a case of the hydraulic booster of the steering mechanism cannot be sorted or adjusted. For detailed information see Carter of the power steering.
  • All fastenings of the mechanism of the hydraulic booster are important parts which can negatively influence responsible knots and systems and can affect the cost of capital repairs. They have to be replaced on identical, with the same number or equivalent spare parts if it is necessary. Do not use spare parts of more poor quality or analogs. At assembly, values of the moments of an inhaling have to meet the specification to provide necessary service life of these parts.
  • Though on pictures levorulny cars, the same repair manuals and information are shown in this section it is applied to cars with the right wheel.
