After Homecoming, Check the Conditions of These Two Components

DAPURPACU – Re-checking the condition of the vehicle after traveling back and forth to his hometown or going on holiday is a factor of obligations that must be carried out by the owner.

This is done so that when it is used for activities again, its conditions remain optimal as when driving it when it traveled hundreds of kilometers during the last homecoming season.

The roads that are traversed during long trips often wear out components quickly, such as the condition of the tires and the suspension system. Cobbled streets and potholes are believed to have been bulldozed.

Especially if the route taken passes through functional toll roads, the full route has not been fully worked out. Usually this path has not been asphalted perfectly.

In this condition, the tires and suspension are the components that are most affected. Generally, this route is still dominated by a rough asphalt surface, not infrequently there are even small sharp stones.

This was confirmed by the Head of the Astra Peugeot Solo Workshop, Dwi Budi Utomo, who said that both components need to be checked regularly.

“Especially after going home, tires and suspension need to be checked so that the condition of the vehicle is prime when used on a daily basis,” he explained further.

Rocky roads can make tires wear out if there are sharp surfaces that can injure the tires. If the tire has been scratched or punctured by a sharp stone, you should replace it.

While problematic suspension conditions can be detected by experiencing changes in sound when the vehicle is running. This change can be from an abnormal sound and can disturb the driver.

In addition, other symptoms that appear such as the steering wheel feels vibrating, unsteady at high speeds until the car is difficult to control at low speeds.

Generally, what needs to be done is to replace the shock breaker support if it is worn out, ball joints, tie rods, bushings, bearings, stabilizer links and damaged shock breaker.

In addition to the components above, you can check the body parts that may have been hit by thrown stones or sharp objects during yesterday’s Eid homecoming. [dp/TH]
