2.8. Car towage

The forward towing eye is behind a cover on the right on the buffer. A cover open fingers advance. At installation of a towing bar for rigid сцепки enter its hook into the car middle (in an arrow direction) to provide sufficient manoeuvrability.

The back towing eye is located on the right under the buffer.

Towage rules

Include ignition not to block a wheel of a steering and it was possible to put in action a sound signal and screen wipers.

Transmission establish in neutral position, at cars with an automatic transmission establish the lever of its management in position "N".

Include emergency and light alarm systems at the pulling and towed car.

As the amplifier of a brake drive and the steering mechanism with the amplifier functions only at the working engine in the idle car it is necessary to press a pedal of a brake and a steering wheel more strongly accordingly!

We recommend to apply a towing bar for rigid сцепки as there is a big danger of arrival at application of a flexible towing cable. This cable should be elastic to save up from collision among themselves towed and pulling cars. Apply only cables from an artificial fibre or cables with elastic intermediate links.

Features of towage of the cars equipped with an automatic transmission

The maximum speed towage: 50km/hour! The maximum distance of towage: 50 km!

On the big distances raise behind the car by means of the car for towage of faulty vehicles or load completely on it.

To tow the faulty car without трансмиссионного oils it is possible only with the raised driving wheels.

Features of towage of the cars equipped in automatic blocked differential (ASD) or system of regulation проскальзывания of driving wheels concerning a basic surface (ASR)

At cars with ASD or with ASR it is impossible to establish the ignition key in position II (ignition is included) if towage is carried out with the raised forward bridge.

Car towage (emergency трогание from a place)

The prevention

Towage (for the purpose of engine start-up) by means of the car being in movement is impossible at the cars equipped with an automatic transmission. Cars with the catalyst can be towed only at the cold engine and at test carrying out, otherwise there is a danger of damage of the catalyst.
