Ford Focus>> Steering>> Check of gaps in a steering
Gaps in a steering can be eliminated as a result of adjustment of the steering mechanism or by replacement of its details. It is better to carry out this work in a specialized workshop.
Check of gaps carry out as follows:
- put wheels directly in the movement direction;
- look through open lateral glasses and rotate a steering wheel falteringly to the right and to the left;
- pay attention to lateral face of the left wheel, it should move rhythmically, to a step of rotation of a steering wheel. Elastic tires can brake a little its movement;
- if you notice that at extreme angles of rotation of a wheel jamming is felt, it testifies to wear of a gear lath. The steering mechanism should be replaced.
