Removal and installation of power shafts


The wheel ABS sensor with the thermofilter

1 — the Termozashchitny screen
2 — Bolts of fastening of the screen
3 — the Wheel ABS sensor

Removal

Performance of this work will require a divider of spherical support, and also a new nut of the lower support.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Prop up antiretractable boots back wheels. A car front also establish to Poddomkratta it on props. Remove the corresponding forward wheel. On models where for access to a nut of fastening of a power shaft it is enough to take off a protective cap of a rim, the otdavaniye of a nut should be made before the car is lifted above the ground:
   a) Prop up forward wheels and take off a disk cap;
   b) Firmly cock the parking brake;
   c) Perform the procedure described in item 4;
   d) Weaken a nut of a power shaft by means of the face key suitable by the size.
2. Merge transmission oil / ATF (address the Head Routine maintenance).
3. On the models equipped with ABS give a fixing nut and a bolt and remove the thermofilter from the holder of a nave. After the screen remove the wheel ABS sensor (address the Head the Brake system) (see an illustration the Wheel ABS sensor with the thermofilter).

4. If the nut of fastening of a power shaft was already weakened (see item 1), pass to implementation of the procedure described in item 6 otherwise take a R-shaped clamp and remove a lock cap of a nut.



5. Screw in a nave and strongly tighten at least two of bolts of fastening of a wheel. Ask the assistant to squeeze out firmly a pedal of a foot brake for the purpose of prevention of a provorachivaniye of a nave, then use a face key of the suitable size and give a nut of fastening of a power shaft. alternatively blocking of a nave can be made by means of easily made of two metal plates, one bolt and three nuts of adaptation. Remember that the nut is tightened very hardly, and therefore, its otdavaniye is connected with risk of sliding of the car from props. In the presence of such opportunity (see item 1), weakening of a nut should be made before the car is lifted above the ground.

6. Weaken and partially turn off a nut of the lower spherical support of a forward suspension bracket (the nut is left on a shaft of a spherical finger for the purpose of protection of its carving). Now use a special divider for a support partition. Finally remove a nut.

Left power shaft

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Carefully delay stupichny assembly outside, accurately releasing from it an external pin of a power shaft. In case of need the shaft can be beaten out from a nave by means of the hammer with soft brisk.

2. Tie up a shaft, then take its internal pin from transmission. Try not to damage an epiploon. Remove a shaft from the car.

Right power shaft

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Give nuts of two bolts of fastening of the intermediate bearing.

2. Then develop bolts under 90 °C the purpose of release of their asymmetric heads from an external holder of the bearing.

3. Having accurately pulled stupichny assembly outside, release from it a pin of the external CV JOINT of a shaft. In case of need the shaft can be beaten out from a nave by means of the hammer with soft brisk.
4. Tie up the external end of a shaft and pull for internal section for the purpose of release of assembly of the intermediate bearing from a basic arm.
5. After release of a shaft from transmission remove from it an internal dustproof cover (try to remember the adjusting provision of a cover).

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Before installation check a condition of an epiploon in a transmission case. In case of need make replacement (see the Head Transmissiya).

Authors of the present manual recommend to make replacement of epiploons of power shafts regardless of their state.

2. Carefully wipe vents since both ends of a shaft and an opening under their landing in transmission and stupichny assembly. Slightly grease with dense lubricant of a sponge of an epiploon, vent and a persistent coat hanger of a pin of a shaft. Check reliability of tightening of bandage tapes of fastening of protective covers.

Left power shaft

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Bring an internal pin of a shaft to transmission, having entered the corresponding vents into gearing. Trying not to damage an epiploon, push a shaft in differential against the stop.
2. Accurately enter external vents of a shaft into gearing and push assembly in a wheel nave.
3. Correctly put the lower spherical support in the lever, screw and tighten a new fixing nut with the required effort.
4. Oil pure motive inside and a carving part of a nut of fastening of a power shaft. Screw a nut on a carving part of an external pin. Block a nave from a provorachivaniye, having used one of 5 ways described in the paragraph. Tighten a nut of fastening of a shaft with the required effort. Check freedom of rotation of a nave. At the corresponding opportunity (see the subsection "Removal", item 1) the stupichny nut has to drag on after lowering of the car on the earth.
5. Put a lock cap on a nut so that one of its cuts was combined with an opening in a shaft pin, then block assembly by a R-shaped clamp.
6. At the corresponding complete set install into place the wheel ABS sensor with the thermofilter (address the Head the Brake system).
7. Establish into place a wheel, lower the car on the earth and tighten nuts of fastening of a wheel with the required effort.
8. Fill in necessary amount of transmission oil / ATF of the required grade in transmission (address the Head Routine maintenance).

Right power shaft

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Check freedom of rotation of the intermediate bearing (the bearing has to be turned without breakthroughs, at the same time the relative side play of its external and internal holders has to remain uniform). In case of need make replacement of the bearing (see Replacement of the intermediate bearing of the right power shaft). Check a condition of a dustproof cover, in case of need make replacement.
2. Slightly grease with dense lubricant an external holder of the bearing and internal sponges of a boot.

3. Pass the internal end of a shaft through a basic arm of the bearing and accurately put on the regular place a boot (a flat surface to transmission).

4. Accurately fill an internal pin of a shaft in a side gear wheel of differential. Try not to damage an epiploon. Put the intermediate bearing in a basic arm, then push a shaft in transmission against the stop. In case of need use the hammer with soft brisk for landing of an external holder of the bearing in an arm.
5. Pass vents of the external CV JOINT throughout a wheel nave.

6. Make sure of correctness of an arrangement of a power shaft, then develop under 90 ° asymmetric bolts of fastening of the intermediate bearing. Tighten fixing nuts with the required effort.

7. Check density of landing of a boot on an epiploon.

8. Perform the procedures described in the subsection "Installation — the Left Power Shaft", subitem 4 — 8.
