Diagnostics

Initial diagnosis is carried out by visual inspection and assessment of your own feeling of the steering system performance. Using a dynamometer you need to measure the necessary effort level required to turn the steering wheel. A value greater than 1.5 N indicates a malfunction of the power steering. Besides, steering play should not exceed 10 degrees or 35-40 centimeters. Liquid leaks of the power steering can be determined by the condensation forming on the power steering surface. You also need to check the condition of seals and gaskets and pump belt tension. Deep diagnostics of the entire system needs to be done in a service shop. Analysis of the steering system must be done at least once every six months or after 50 000-70 000 kilometers.

It is highly recommended to replace the defective elements of the system. However, this does not apply to the gaps removal between the parts, you can just pull up the fastening to the required level. Increased clearance in the bearings can be removed using special pads. Replacement of steering system components has to be done by professionals, because it requires the work of several people, experience and skills of the repair and special equipment. This is a very time-consuming and responsible task.
