Noiseless locks as an alternative to factory solutions
I must admit that the domestic car industry so faruncompetitive. It's not unfortunate, but the terrible shortcomings of Russian cars make you think about the advisability of buying a car of this segment. However, in the absence of large funds, many motorists still buy classic models from AvtoVAZ, GAZ and UAZ. Our citizens are already accustomed for their money to refine the products of the domestic automotive industry, so let's talk about how to install silent locks on the doors of classical models.
First of all, it should be noted that the processthis simple and special skills are not required here. Enough to arm with a screwdriver and a bit of patience. When installing and dismounting locks, be careful, as some parts may fall into the door. To get them, you have to remove the paneling, and this is an additional time and strength.
Why do factory locks emit a strong sound? The answer is simple: metal locks can not be closed in any other way, their clangs will be heard everywhere in the radius of 500 meters.
Noiseless locks are made as usual,only in their design are provided plastic sections. Thanks to them, at the moment of contact of the latch with the latch the noise is muffled. Why the domestic manufacturer has not yet solved such a simple task - a puzzle even for the manufacturer itself. However, attempts to rectify the situation were already in the latest developments from AvtoVAZ, but until the end the problem was not eliminated. Therefore, the installation of silent locks on the classics and is not only relevant to this day.
You can buy silent locks in almostall stores specializing in the sale of auto parts. It should be noted that the concept of such locks is available only in Russia, and on foreign portals it is difficult to find something useful on this request. Probably there slipped that period when this problem was actual even before the advent of the Internet.
To install silent locks, do not change the door handles, larvae, order new keys, cables and locks of central locks. It is sufficient to replace only the element where the fixation hook is located.
The procedure is carried out in several stages. Initially unscrew the two bolts that hold the lock. The element is dismantled so that it does not fall through the door. To do this, the lower bolt is unscrewed first, and the lower part of the element is withdrawn to the side. Then the upper bolt is loosened, the element is removed. It remains to establish a noiseless analogue in the same way, only in the reverse order.
Then, on the stand where the lock is located, the bolt is loosened and the pin is dismantled, and a new one is screwed in instead.
Thus, noiseless locks are changed at alldoors. After the installation is complete, it will only be necessary to adjust the elements so that they close tightly and do not damage the body paintwork. Finally, the doors will cease to make a frightening sound, and neighbors can sleep peacefully, your swallow will not disturb their peace, even at night.
