1.4.3. Car evacuation

Fig. 1.174. Ways of evacuation of the car

We recommend to involve for car evacuation only specialized services of technical assistance on roads which belong to official dealers of Mazda or operate independently.
In order to avoid damages of the car it is necessary to carry out all operations on lifting and car towage in strict accordance with instructions. Besides, it is necessary to observe all operating rules regulating towage and evacuation of cars.
Towage of the front-wheel car should be carried out with the lifted forward wheels. If damages available on the car or other reasons do not allow to make it, it is necessary to use basic carts for forward wheels.
At towage of the front-wheel car with a support on back wheels switch off the parking brake.
It is forbidden to tow the car for back wheels with a support of forward driving wheels on the road. It will lead to a transmission exit out of operation.
If it is impossible to cause specialized service of evacuation, the car can be towed with an opiraniye of all wheels on the road, using a forward towing eye. It is thus authorized to tow the car only on roads with an advanced covering, on short distance (to 5 km) and on small speed (to 25 km/h).
At car towage with an opiraniye of all wheels on the road carry out the following instructions.
1. Include a neutral in a mechanical transmission, transfer the switch of ranges of automatic transmission to neutral situation (N).
2. Turn the ignition switch in the situation "ASS" (auxiliary consumers of the electric power) to prevent inclusion of blocking of a steering wheel.
3. Switch off the parking brake.
Remember that at the idle engine of the car the steering hydraulic booster and the vacuum brake amplifier do not function.

Towing loops are intended for use in emergency situations (for example to pull out the got stuck car). When using a towing loop it is necessary to watch that the towing cable or a chain were directed parallel to a longitudinal axis of the car always. It is forbidden to load a towing loop with cross-section efforts. It is forbidden to use back loops for car towage. These loops are intended ONLY for car fastening at its transportation. Use of these loops for towage of the car will lead to damage of a rear bumper.
