Repair B3-B4/Passat B3-B4 Volkswagen Passat>> Steering>> Replacement of liquid of the hydraulic amplifier of a steering
Liquid level in the steering mechanism with the amplifier is checked at the provision of the wheels established in situation «movement directly forward», and the working engine.
Be convinced that liquid level is in a tank between the labels «Мax» and «Min». If necessary finish liquid level to norm.
On the cars made till February, 1989, in system of a steering drive with the amplifier ATF liquid is used. On later models hydraulic oil is applied. When refueling system it is desirable to use the same liquid or oil which were already filled in in system.
Replacement make in the following order:
– disconnect soaking-up hose on the pump and merge liquid in the container;
– at plum of liquid turn a steering wheel from an emphasis against the stop to remove as much as possible liquid;
– after the termination liquid plum repeatedly connect soaking-up hose to the pump then fill a tank to the upper edge with new liquid;
– several times start and switch off the engine that will allow to fill system quicker;
– check level of liquid and continue to add liquid in process of level reduction in a tank;
– when level of liquid is stabilized, start up the engine and let's to it work on idling turns;
– turn a steering wheel several times from an emphasis against the stop, without leaving a steering wheel in extreme situation not to create the maximum pressure in system;
– check liquid level in a tank, and in case of need add liquid in a tank to the label «Мax»;
– after stabilization of level of liquid in a tank and absence in liquid of air bubbles, switch off the engine and establish a cover on a tank.
After an engine stop level of liquid should raise slightly.
