5.14. A broad tank and the sensor of level of cooling liquid



1. Fastening of a broad tank is carried out by one screw. If it is necessary to move aside a broad tank, unscrew the screw and, without disconnecting from a broad tank hoses, move it aside.
2. Disconnect from a broad tank two top hoses and, having lifted up, tie up them in this situation to reduce loss of cooling liquid.
3. Unscrew the screw, a fixing tank, and raise a tank up as far as possible.
4. Establish under a broad tank the corresponding container, then remove the bottom hose and merge cooling liquid from a tank in the container. Tie up the bottom hose of a broad tank as it is possible above for reduction of losses of cooling liquid.


1. Installation is made in sequence, return to removal.
2. Check level and if necessary add cooling liquid.


The sensor of level of cooling liquid is established in a cover of a broad tank. If the sensor is faulty, it is necessary to replace it together with a cover of a broad tank.
