9. Pre-Alignment Checks

For proper inspection and adjustment of the wheel alignment, do these checks:

Release the parking brake to avoid an incorrect measurement.

Make sure the suspension is not modified.


3.

Make sure the fuel tank is full, and that the tire repair kit, the spare tire, the jack, and the tools are in place on the vehicle.


4.

Check the tire size and tire pressure according to tire information.


10. Camber - Inspection

Use commercially available computerized four wheel alignment equipment to measure wheel alignment (caster, camber, toe, and turning angle). Follow the equipment manufacturer's instructions.


1.

Check the camber angle.


USA and Canada models

Camber angle:

 

Except Si:

   

Front:

0 ° 00 ’±30 ’

   

Rear:

-0 ° 45 ’±45 ’

 

Si (Without 18 inch wheel):

   

Front:

-0 ° 04 ’±30 ’

   

Rear:

-0 ° 52 ’±45 ’

 

Si (With 18 inch wheel):

   

Front:

-0 ° 18 ’±30 ’

   

Rear:

-0 ° 45 ’±45 ’

(Maximum difference between the front right and left side: 0 ° 45 ’)


Mexico models

Camber angle:

 

Front:

0 ° 20 ’±30 ’

 

Rear:

-0 ° 22 ’±45 ’

(Maximum difference between the front right and left side: 0 ° 45 ’)


If the measurement is within specification, measure the toe-in.

If the measurement for the front camber is not within the specification, go to front camber adjustment.

If the measurement for the rear camber is not within the specification, check for bent or damaged suspension components.


11. Rear Toe - Inspection

Use commercially available computerized four wheel alignment equipment to measure wheel alignment (caster, camber, toe, and turning angle). Follow the equipment manufacturer's instructions.


1.

Release the parking brake to avoid an incorrect measurement.


2.

Check the toe.


Rear toe-in: 2+2-1 mm (0.08+0.08-0.04 in)

If adjustment is required, go to the rear toe adjustment.

If no adjustment is required, go to front toe inspection.
