Loyal to the classics
Zhiguli has been out of production for a long time. The last “seven” rolled off the assembly line 10 years ago. But for many owners, these machines are in good technical condition and continue their daily service.
On the other hand, more and more enthusiasts are restoring, cherishing and cherishing “penny”, “troika”, “six” and other cars of the classic family. And all owners, whether they keep their Zhiguli as a rarity or mercilessly exploit them for utility purposes, need high-quality consumables.
VAZ cars of the rear-wheel drive family are no longer young and need high-quality consumables.
The car does not drive much – change the oil in the engine once a year. And on long journeys, it is advisable to change the oil at least once every 7000 km. When you replace it, you will of course need a new oil filter.
Previously, for Zhiguli engines, it had a noticeably greater volume than for the front-wheel drive family. Then a general unification took place and mainly “universal” filters of a smaller size remained for sale. But it is much better to use a large oil filter with a large curtain surface: older engines take advantage of their large dirt capacity. Handelshuis “Za Rulem” offers exactly such – large – filters for your car.
The “Behind the wheel” oil filter has an original design with a larger area of the filter curtain, which is most suitable for older engines.
A very long time ago, the engines of “classic” VAZs began to be equipped with a fuel injection system. They need an air filter, as they say, “square”. It has a high dust holding capacity and curtain strength, as well as low airflow resistance.
Air filters “Behind the wheel” are of excellent quality and are manufactured using the most modern technologies. They can be used on both Zhiguli and front wheel drive models.
For reliable operation of an engine with a fuel injection system, it is very important to ensure high-quality gasoline cleaning. But many Zhiguli are operated in the outback, where substandard fuel is sometimes found at gas stations. That’s why it’s important to install a high-quality gas filter and replace it more often.
To prevent this procedure from getting into your wallet, we recommend “Behind the wheel” filters – high quality and inexpensive. The range includes specimens for both carburettor and injection cars.
Fuel filters “Behind the wheel” are excellent for Russian operating conditions. There are consumables for both injection and carburetor engines.
Take care of your brakes
Brake pads are a typical consumable item. And with their replacement with significant wear, it is not worth pulling. If the brake pads are completely worn, you can “pull up” the brake disc and destroy it. Yes, and it is harmful to the cylinders if the pistons come out almost all the way: this shortens the life of the seals.
For replacement, we can recommend the “Behind the wheel” pads, which have an optimal geometry, non-squeaky pads and a reasonable price.
Brake pads “Behind the wheel” do not creak, effectively stop the car and prevent premature wear of the brake discs.
Take care of your Zhiguli, don’t start any problems, stick to the maintenance deadlines. And the car will serve you well.
For Zhiguli restoration enthusiasts, we have released a range of consumables for VAZ carburetor models.
