Centralization

Steering mechanism

1=325,0 mm

The steering mechanism is centralized for installation of a steering wheel (the model with right-hand management is shown).
Top coupling bolt

The arrow specified the provision of the top coupling bolt of flexible connection of the steering mechanism (the model with right-hand management is shown).

Forward wheels are established directly when distance from the middle of a lock plate of a bolt of fastening of steering thirst for the steering mechanism to the middle of a ledge on the right fixing clip (for models with right-hand management) or on the left fixing clip (for models with left-side management) the steering mechanism such as it is specified in the drawing (see rice. Steering mechanism). In this situation the top coupling bolt of flexible rubber connection has to settle down horizontally over shaft of a steering column (see rice. Top coupling bolt).

If the steering wheel is displaced more than on 5 °, remove it and turn on the required corner.
