8.1. Features of a design

Install steering with the steering gear wheel lath mechanism on the Chery Amulet cars. 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 – hydraulic system 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 installed in podkapotny space and fixed on a cross-piece of a forward suspension bracket by four bolts.
Steering is equipped by the hydraulic booster.
Pressure of working liquid in the hydraulic booster is created by the pump of bladed type which is installed on the engine and given from a pulley of a bent shaft by a maple belt. At failure of the steering amplifier the possibility of driving remains, but the effort on a steering wheel increases.

Fig. 8.2. Steering column: 1 – intermediate shaft; 2 – lower 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 – understeering 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 a steering shaft from turn. On a steering column governing bodies of light of headlights, are also placed by indexes of turn, a washer and screenwash.
On a nave of a steering wheel the safety cushion is established.
