3.20. Check in way

Check in way (after the first 10 000 km of a run or 12 months later) *

For definition of intervals of the subsequent checks address appropriate section of the schedule of routine maintenance of the car.

Devices and electric equipment


1. Check functioning of all devices of the electric equipment.
2. Make sure of correctness of indications of devices and of reliability of functioning of switches of all electric equipment in turn. Check functioning of a heater, the air conditioner, systems of automatic control of a microclimate.

Steering and suspension bracket


1. Make sure of lack of abnormal behavior of elements of steering system and a suspension bracket at the movement of the car.
2. Whether during the movement of the car pay attention vibration is felt in salon and whether unusual noise are heard.
3. Check whether well the car answers the helm, whether there is no excessive resistance or pushes at rotation of a steering wheel, pay attention to all noise published by a suspension bracket during turns at the movement on roughnesses of the road. Make sure of correctness of functioning of system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel. Check functioning of a control system of speed if it is established.

Running gear


1. Check functioning of the engine, coupling (the manual transmission), automatic transmission and power shafts. On the models equipped with system of a turbo-supercharging make sure that the arrow of the supercharger of pressure quickly moves to a red zone at sharp acceleration of the car.
2. Check whether there are no unusual noise published by the engine, coupling (the manual transmission) or transmission.
3. Make sure that the engine works at single turns smoothly and that at acceleration the engine works surely.
4. On the models equipped with the manual transmission make sure that coupling works smoothly, with smooth transfer of effort and that the choice of transfers happens freely. Make sure of correctness of the course of a pedal of coupling. Check whether there are no unusual noise when squeezing a pedal of coupling. Speeds have to switch smoothly, without noise, and the lever of gear shifting it is easy to move, without jamming.
5. On the models equipped with automatic transmission make sure that the choice of all transfers is carried out easily, without jamming and without increase in turns of the engine at gear shifting. Make sure that there is an opportunity to establish any transfer at the switched-off car. At emergence of any problems it is necessary to address the representative of SAAB.
6. Check whether the metal clang in a forward part of the car at the movement of the car is heard around, at a slow speed, with completely turned out wheel. Make this check at both directions of rotation. Existence of a clang indicates wear of hinges of power shafts, in this case it is necessary to apply for information in the head Power shafts.

Check of functioning and characteristics of the brake system


1. Check whether takes away the car aside when braking and whether there is no premature blocking of wheels at sharp braking.
2. Check whether appears when braking the vibration transferred to a steering wheel.
3. Check operation of the emergency brake. The course of the lever should not be excessive at raising of a brake. The brake has to hold reliably the car on a bias.
4. Check functioning of system of vacuum strengthening of brakes if it is established. At the switched-off engine squeeze out 4 - 5 times a foot brake for vacuum dumping. Holding a pedal of pressed, start the engine. After start of the engine, in process of formation of vacuum, the pedal has to leave to a polik. Let's the engine work within, at least, 2 minutes, and then switch off it. If now to release a brake pedal, then the hissing sound from system of vacuum strengthening of brakes will be clearly heard. After 4 - 5 pressing a brake pedal hissing has to stop.
