Control of a condition of a casing of the steering mechanism

Check of a corrugated casing of steering on cracks: at extension of folds (shooter) most simply it is possible to make out untight places.

In a motor compartment the steering mechanism which gear lath is protected by a casing behind is below located. It needs to be checked regularly. The cracked corrugated casing opens access in the steering mechanism for moisture and dirt, and this mix in a combination to lubricant filler forms some kind of grinding paste from which the guide of a gear lath and a gear wheel of the steering mechanism strongly suffer. Thus, timely control saves money:


  1. Hands to stretch a corrugated casing or to turn a wheel to the right to make out cracks or gaps.
  2. Whether both buckles on the ends of a rubber casing densely adjoin?
  3. The defective casing needs to be replaced immediately.
