11.1.7. Spherical support



On each lever of a suspension bracket about 2 support are provided.

Check and replacement

1. Lift the car.
2. Check a condition of covers of support. At detection on covers of anguishes, cuts or leak of lubricant assembled with support replace the lever. Support separately in the spare part are not delivered.
3. Check wear of spherical support, having shaken the lever the mount inserted between the lever and a cross-piece (or a rotary fist). At detection of a side play the lever is subject to replacement.
4. If when rocking a wheel in the vertical plane the noticeable side play in the place of a nut of a finger of a support is felt, then wear of a finger or expansion of an opening under a finger in the lever or in a rotary fist is the reason. In this case it is necessary to replace both the lever with support, and a cross-piece or a rotary fist.
