2.1. In due time take care of spare details
Still before you start to work, all necessary spare details should be already got and be on a place of works. Beforehand make the list of spare parts which includes all necessary for you for detail operating repair. Thus consider not only directly details, but also corresponding collateral materials (linings, safety rings, sealing rings for radial shaft, самоконтрящиеся nuts, greasing, a liquid sealant and so forth) which concern repair periphery. At occurrence of doubts or for большей confidence address to the seller of spare details – to it are known the majority of working processes, and it will help to make for you an appropriate repair set.
If you cannot estimate in the beginning precisely enough volume of spent repair make the schedule of works so that in it still there were time "openings" for off-schedule visiting of shop of spare parts or service centre Ford. Thus never recognise that in the service centre in a warehouse all details necessary for you will be stored – count as well time for drawing up and order execution.
It will help you to work more effectively
Not to run into a temptation expressing attention to the Mondeo a possible gift in the form of "a defective" spare detail, put in order and preliminary clean a workplace from «the old inheritance».
Basically display the dismantled details as their dismantling. It will essentially facilitate to you in the subsequent installation process.
Fine details are better for putting in separate boxes or other capacities. Screw in screws after dismantle at once in a corresponding carving. Thanks to it each screw will sit in the native place, and you will not get confused in a puzzle with screws.
If near to your "scene" the drain settles down or an oil separator cover them in an operating time – the rust on a lattice renders «magic force of an attraction» on fine details.
Before the beginning of works study documentation attentively entering into standard item on repair and maintenance service. At work hold this documentation always near at hand.
Prepare on various works the corresponding sketches concerning separate working steps. Further it will help you to reduce time of installation and to facilitate search of malfunctions.
At performance of works in wheel niches, with shock-absorbers or under the car bottom do not settle down on crude to a floor: the old blanket will protect you from a cold floor. Well and that at oil or greasing was not chances you to soil spread in addition also a polymeric film.
After the work do not leave on the earth oil traces. For this purpose first of all it is possible to use caustic house cleaners or washing-up liquids for ware. However is better to use, certainly, special удалитель the oil stains, on sale in shops of spare parts.
Depending on a numerical code – "a correct" spare detail
During industrial time some details of serial equipment change, but from it still at once there can not be «a new car». That who independently is engaged in repair, this fact should be considered, for here often solving there is not so much year of release, how many month of manufacture which defines at that point in time a required spare detail. Thereby you facilitate as yourselves, and the seller of spare details work on list drawing up if at once will give it the passport on the car or the data from the factory tablet. The competent seller will receive the information about ought for yours Mondeo details and will quickly find it on a numerical code. Well and if you wish to be assured of such number bring to the seller the washed and pure old detail completely.
Engine number: depending on type of the engine the alphanumeric code in Duratec-HE "decorates" facing of a gear belt, in Duratec-VE accordingly right клапанную a cover and in DuraTorg-DI – the right area of facing of a chain of a drive of a camshaft.
The factory tablet (VIN-label): settles down in Mondeo on the right average rack below a door-lock pin. The following data is brought in it: a digital code of a point of production, car type, weight of the car, identification number of the car and all units established at factory.
Identification number of the car: it is looked through through a windshield and settles down on the memorable table at the left from above on the instrument panel or in a motor compartment on closed metal sheet. On the table also there is an alphabetic additional information on the established system of pillows of safety.
Safety first of all – check authenticity of spare details
All spare details which are necessary for carrying out of your repair Mondeo, get at dealers Ford. However not ALL OF YOU should get there: shops of autospare parts also offer a wide choice. Among them it is possible to find details of those manufacturers which deliver them Ford for primary equipment. Thus, it is possible to spend comparison of the prices – in the assumption that service services, quality and expenses on delivery are almost comparable. Never run risks, getting the goods "not marked".
The sums saved on it often appear small, and in the subsequent cannot compensate reliability lack. In sense SAFETY during movement you receive reliability only at use of spare details in the corresponding scale of quality of factory-manufacturer.
The obvious fact – cheaply yet does not mean cheaply
In a question of reliability connected with spare parts, экономность can turn back a negligence: brake overlays, brake disks, wheel bearings, power shafts and hinges basically should be got at factory-manufacturer or with quality of the original detail having corresponding Ava-NUMBER tests. The majority of cheap products do not reach a necessary minimum level of quality. And their application, undoubtedly, will be reduced further to showdown both with itself, and concerning safety of others.
If you, for example, use cheap disk brakes from unknown sources of an origin which have the oval form the subsequent expensive repair can expect you or – is even worse – at sudden full braking they can directly burn down at you in the face of.
Ford co-ordinates in Mondeo structure of frictional overlays with properties of a material of disk brakes. () for this purpose you can find code number in «the General permissions to operation» (Ava). If you Mondeo after enough serious failure is exposed to examination and the expert will establish that details of the brake mechanism do not correspond to Ava he can notice that you should pay damages under the car insurance. Therefore do not concern thoughtlessly only the prices – your safety, and also safety of those who NEAR TO you, – here the main thing, on what it is necessary to pay attention.
Replacement of details – inexpensive alternative
Use of second-hand details in some cases sometimes brings benefit. Original replacing details from Ford possess the same quality, as the new detail, however is much cheaper, and on it the same guarantee certificates extend. Shops of autospare parts also offer a wide choice of replacing details. Company Bosch реализовывает by means of the авторизированных workshops the prepared electric equipment. Besides, solid autodealers in many cases is also good addresses, at least, when better to refuse cheap repair and not to give great value to formalities. It, for example, concerns such details of a body, as to a door, буферы and cowls of engines. Sale second-hand быстроизнашивающихся details brings benefit, certainly, only when they on quality essentially exceed details used in the car. Sometimes you should dismantle independently a necessary spare detail from the specified place. In this case it is necessary to request its price at once in the beginning: the used detail should, the greatest cost cheaper half in comparison with a corresponding new detail. Never pay for быстроизнашивающиеся details more a quarter from its initial price for a new detail.
