1.48. Towage of the car


Always take with yourself in the road a towing cable. It is recommended to use a cable from artificial fiber or similar elastic material.


You fix a towing cable only for special eyes. Turn on the light alarm system according to Traffic regulations.

If tow your car with the idle engine, insert a key into the switch (lock) of ignition and include ignition for switching off of the anti-theft device (do not switch off ignition at all, differently the steering column can be blocked).

At the idle engine you should brake with big effort as the vacuum amplifier does not work. If the engine is serviceable, launch it that the amplifier of brakes operated, the rechargeable battery was not discharged and it was possible to use a heater in cold time.

You watch signals of the towing car. Try to support constantly a cable in the tense state, braking the car. If you the car tow other car, provide at start-off from the place a gradual tension of a towing cable (visually by means of a rear-view mirror and on increase in load of the engine) and only then smoothly increase the speed of the movement. Do not allow sharp accelerations, braking and turns. You stick to the right row and needlessly do not change a lane. Earlier, than usually, include indexes of turn. Do not exceed the towage speed specified in Traffic regulations.


The forward towing eye removable, is stored in a toolbox.

Removal and installation

1. By means of the screw-driver wring out two clamps (places of their arrangement are specified by shooters) the right ventilating grate 1 (since the clamp, next to the center) and remove a lattice from the forward buffer 2.
. 2. Screw an eye 1 in axis 3. Implant, for example, an assembly shovel into an opening of an eye and tighten an eye (2 – the forward buffer).
3. After towage of the car to the destination remove an eye 1, put it in a toolbox and establish a ventilating grate, having reliably recorded it in the forward buffer.


The back towing eye 1 is located under the back buffer 2 on the left side.
