Repair B3-B4/Passat B3-B4 Volkswagen Passat>> Steering>> General information
Depending on a complete set cars can be equipped with a mechanical steering or management with the hydraulic booster. Since 1992, the steering with the hydraulic booster is established serially. In a design the steering mechanism of type a shesternyareyka is applied. A steering column — telescopic type with adjustment of a departure and (or) an inclination.

Fig. 11.1. Knots and elements of system of a steering: 1–steering wheel of cars of option of a koplektatsiya of CL; 2–steering wheel of cars of options of a complete set of GL, GT; 3–a steering wheel of cars with the power steering; 4–podrulevy switches; 5–top shaft of a steering wheel; 6–bottom shaft of a steering wheel; 7–protective casing of a steering column; 8–case of a steering column; 9–fastening of the steering mechanism; 10-steering mechanism; 11-protective casing of a lath; 12-cross-section steering draft

The steering consists of a steering wheel 1, 2 or 3 (fig. 11.1) , a steering column, the mechanism of a steering and cross-section steering drafts 12. The steering wheel is fixed on a steering column and transfers effort to tooth reechny gearing. The gear lath of the steering mechanism from each party is connected to cross-section steering draft means of the spherical hinge. Steering drafts transfer effort through steering tips and rotary fists to forward wheels. Reechnoye a steering possesses an easy course and has no люфтов at rotation of a steering wheel from an emphasis against the stop. The steering practically does not demand service, however it is necessary to check constantly a condition of protective covers of spherical hinges.
As it was specified, on some cars the steering option with possibility of adjustment of provision of a steering wheel on height can be applied. When moving the operating lever the steering column is released. Under the influence of a spring the steering wheel is established in the highest situation. At the extended operating lever the steering wheel can be established manually in five various provisions on height. For fixing of a steering wheel it is necessary to release the operating lever. The system of installation of a steering wheel on height does not demand maintenance.
On some models the hydraulic amplifier of a steering can be established. It consists of the oil pump, a broad tank and oil pipelines. The oil pump is put in action through maple a belt. The pump submits oil from a tank under big pressure to the valve located in the steering mechanism. The valve is mechanically connected to shaft of a steering and submits oil depending on turn of a steering wheel to the relevant party of the working cylinder. Oil presses on the piston of a gear lath and at the expense of it supports movement of a steering wheel. At the same time the piston pushes out oil on the other side of the working cylinder via the returnable pipeline back in a broad tank.
On cars with the diesel engine and (or) central air of air the contour of cooling of working liquid of the hydraulic booster, executed in the form of the pipeline laid along a modular beam of the forward bridge is provided.
