8.1. Features of a design
On Chery Amulet cars establish a steering with the steering mechanism of type a gear wheel lath. The steering drive consists of two steering drafts connected by spherical hinges to rotary levers of telescopic racks of a forward suspension bracket. A steering column safety, with adjustment on a tilt angle.
|Fig. 8.1. The steering mechanism (it is for descriptive reasons shown established on a cross-piece of a forward suspension bracket): 1, 9 – external tips of steering drafts; 2, 8 – steering drafts; 3, 7 – covers of steering drafts; 4–bracket of fastening of the steering mechanism; 5–case of the steering mechanism; 6–hydrosystem pipelines; 10, 13 – nuts of bolts of fastening of the steering mechanism; 11-cross-piece of a forward suspension bracket; 12-pillow of fastening of the steering mechanism
The steering mechanism (fig. 8.1)
is established in podkapotny space and fixed on a cross-piece of a forward suspension bracket by four bolts.
The steering is equipped by the hydraulic booster.
Pressure of working liquid in the hydraulic booster is created by the pump of lopastny type which is established on the engine and brought from a pulley of a cranked shaft by a maple belt. At failure of the steering amplifier possibility of driving remains, but the effort on a steering wheel increases.
|Fig. 8.2. Steering column: 1–intermediate shaft; 2–bottom arm of fastening of a steering column; 3–steering column; 4–the top arm of fastening of a steering column with the mechanism of change of a tilt angle; 5–steering shaft; 6–steering wheel; 7–nut of fastening of a steering wheel; 8–contact ring of a safety cushion and sound signal; 9–podrulevy switches assembled with a connector; 10-lock ring; 11-remote plug; 12-spring; 13-switch (lock) of ignition
The steering column (fig. 8.2)
is equipped with the power absorbing device increasing passive safety of the car, the device for adjustment of provision of a steering wheel on height and the anti-theft device in the ignition lock, blocking from turn a steering shaft. On a steering column governing bodies are also placed by light of headlights, turn indexes, a washer and a windscreen cleaner.
On a nave of a steering wheel the safety cushion is established.
