11.16. The steering mechanism with the amplifier

All models Mondeo right after the factory conveyor already go for a drive, having onboard the steering mechanism with the hydraulic booster. It supports work of a steering depending on current loading: the more slowly you move, the more strongly amplifier support; at high speeds, on the contrary, such help is proportional to speed. Except a jobbing on servicing (such as check of hydraulic system on tightness, доливка hydraulic oil, etc.) on repair of the steering mechanism with the hydraulic booster it is better to dealer Ford to transfer works.


Safety pillow – basically a case for the "present" professional

Already after an exit for factory Mondeo gate protects your life by means of safety pillows. Therefore all works with a column of the steering mechanism and elements serving it transfer to workshop Ford is better. Only there the "present" pros, using special instructions under safety precautions at the reference with «bags of compressed air», can spend вывинчивание components of salon concerning this system. For at the inadequate reference the safety pillow can "blow up" in fractions of a second. Therefore here the best – to "clean" from such difficult "game" "fingers" if the switch and management elements on a rack of steering your mechanism Mondeo "are sick". Already transportation and storage of a pillow of safety should submit to strict instructions of safety precautions. Thereby we once again focus attention of fans – and it in their own interests: – a safety pillow – basically business for real professionals.

In practice – progressive support of the steering mechanism

During a parking and evolution the hydraulic booster helps you «on full force» – since 10 km/h, on the contrary, its effect continuously decreases. In practice the following makes sense: for in a range of high speeds efforts actually operating on a steering wheel and so are lowered.

Design of a column of steering mechanism Mondeo

1 — the Power absorbing element with a pillow of safety for the driver,
2 — the Separated column of the steering mechanism,

3/4 — the Bottom/top facing of a column.
