Information - Shock absorber boots

If dust is collected and penetrates the car units, be prepared for function disturbance and wear out augmentation. In order to secure the vehicle components and assemblies from dust, the hydraulic tank mouths of the clutch brakes should be covered with special transparent bags, made from high-quality pellicle.

After that you must fix them with a rubber band. By doing so, you will surely protect the transmission from dust. Some cars are already provided with such protection bags. Mud and dust will certainly not get into the cars systems. When the crankcase ventilation system is running, dust will definitely be absorbed by the engine through the control openings of the oil meter.

In most modern cars these openings are sealed, but the older models are not provided with such items. You can secure this part by using a very simple rubber hose or cap. If you happen to drive on very dusty roads, it is necessary to protect the ignition distributor from dust and dirt. To do this, wrap the distributor in a special dense tissue, collect all the wires together and tie them to a cord. In case you use a plastic bag instead of a tissue for isolating the ignition distributor, moisture will condense in the generator, and will negatively affect the work of the ignition.
