1.3.31.1. Check of level of electrolit

GENERAL INFORMATION

Arrangement of the holder of safety locks over the storage battery

1–fastening of a minus wire;

2–six-sided nut;

3–fastening of a positive wire;

4–safety locks.

The storage battery under normal conditions car operation almost does not demand service. At high temperature of air it is recommended to check from time to time electrolit level in the battery. Also it is necessary to check electrolit level at a battery charge.

The storage battery is located in a motor compartment.

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. For access to the storage battery open a cover.
2. Level of electrolit should be always between labels of MIN and a MOVE, put on the longitudinal parties of the battery.
3. At decrease in level of electrolit it is necessary to add in the relevant banks the distilled water to a mark the MOVE.
4. Average jams of the storage battery are closed by the holder of safety locks. From two parties as it is specified by shooters, compress a cover of the holder of safety locks and cast away it aside.
5. Unscrew and remove from the storage battery minus a wire (1, see fig. An arrangement of the holder of safety locks over the storage battery).
6. Weaken fastening of a positive wire.
7. Cast away at first a forward clip and then a back clip from the battery. For this purpose it is necessary to wring out some clips from the battery.
8. Remove up the holder of safety locks together with a positive wire from the storage battery.
9. Unscrew jams and add the distilled water in banks of the storage battery.
10. Do not pour electrolits above necessary level, otherwise the electrolit will follow through a ventilating opening. It can lead to damage of a paint and varnish covering and to body corrosion.
11. After a dolivka of electrolit it is necessary to close densely the relevant storage banks jams.
