10.4. Check of level of electrolyte in the rechargeable battery, service of contacts.

Service of contacts



The rechargeable battery is located under a back seat on the right side. She does not demand maintenance. Nevertheless it is regularly necessary to check the level of the electrolyte consisting of the sulfuric acid diluted with the distilled water. High external temperature or malfunction of the regulator of tension of the generator can lead to decrease in an amount of water in the battery. Besides, can be the reasons of it a self-discharge (a long break in operation) or a strong discharge because of the connected powerful consumer (for example, the refrigerator which is switched on in the lighter).
For a dolivka it is necessary to use only the distilled water: tap or boiled water contains electroconductive salts and other mineral substances which cause damages of the battery.

       PREVENTION
Electrolyte of the battery is dangerous. At hit in eyes, on skin or clothes wash away its large number waters. If necessary see a doctor.

If the car is equipped with the unattended battery (on the top part there are no openings), it is not necessary to carry out service of the battery. In such batteries special gel electrolyte therefore there is no need to check the level and density of electrolyte is used. Such batteries cannot be disassembled.

1. Electrolyte level has to be in the battery not below a tag of "MIN" on the case (the top edges of electrodes have to be covered with electrolyte).
2. At the insufficient level of electrolyte turn out a stopper or hook the screw-driver.
3. In the charged battery add the distilled water to the top tag (about 15 mm over the top edge of electrodes).
4. In strongly discharged battery water has to cover the top edge of electrodes only. At charging level strongly increases. After charging add waters to the top tag.
5. Do not allow a modulation — in this case electrolyte will contact to a cover or to follow from side air vents. It will cause corrosion and formation of crystals of acid on the surface of the battery and the platform on which it is established.
