Removal and installation of the transmission



1. Prop up back wheels antiretractable boots, cock the parking brake, then a front of the car and establish to a poddomkratta it on props. Remove both forward wheels and a cover of access from a cornice of an arch of the left wheel.
2. Merge gearbox oil (see Replacement of gearbox oil). Screw into place drain and jellied/control traffic jams and tighten them with the required effort.
3. Release the gate of the regulator of pressure and transfer a suspension bracket to position of LOW.
4. Remove power shafts (see the Head Power shafts).
5. Remove the battery with the pallet and a basic plate (see the Head Elektrooborudovaniye of the engine).
6. Remove a casing of the air cleaner and/or an inlet air duct (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).
7. Remove the tank of hydraulic liquid (see the Head Uniform hydraulic system).
8. Disconnect a gas cable from the throttle/TNVD case.
9. On petrol models remove the throttle case (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).
10. Depending on a complete set remove components on the left side of a head of cylinders, including the vacuum tank and the valve of stabilization of turns of idling.
11. At the corresponding complete set give fixing nuts and shift the hydraulic ABS modulator aside. Remove an arm of fastening of the modulator.

12. Release from clamps from the forward party of the power unit the soaking-up and returnable tubes of hydraulic system, disconnect tubes from the pump (see the Head Uniform hydraulic system). At once to a zakuporta the open ends of tubes for the purpose of prevention of hit in system of dirt.

13. Otboltite the regulator of hydraulic pressure and the distributor of supply of liquid from a forward wall of the engine also tie up assembly by a wire aside, or lay on a suitable prop.
14. Disconnect from the transmission all electrical wiring, including tires of grounding and power supply of the sensor switch of fires of a backing.

15. Disconnect a drive cable a speed sensor speedometer/electrical wiring.

16. Having hooked the screw-driver with a flat sting, accurately release three drafts of the drive of gear shifting from the spherical hinges on transmission.

17. Remove a cable guide, a metal arm and the VMT sensor.
18. In a motive compartment release the core and a cover of a cable from a basic arm. Disconnect a cable from the top part of a case of transmission.
19. At the corresponding complete set screw fixing bolts and remove a plastic arm from the top part of transmission.
20. Otboltite also remove a speedometer drive cable arm.
21. Prop up the engine a jack (for the purpose of distribution of loading lay wooden whetstone between a head of a jack and the pallet of a case), or hang out the power unit by means of the winch or a cross beam.
22. Prop up a jack transmission (besides through wooden whetstone) and slightly shift it towards a radiator.

23. Give the central nut of the left support of the power unit, remove a washer.

24. Turn out two bolts of fastening of assembly of an arm of a support to a car body. Remove an arm. If the arm is welded, give nuts (do not forget about washers) and remove a rubber pillow of a support.

25. Remove the remote plug and turn out a hairpin.

26. On models with coupling of "exhaust" type (see the Head Stsepleniye) beat out a finger / turn out a fixing bolt.

27. Remove the switching off lever from the top end of an axis of a fork of switching off for the purpose of ensuring freedom of rotation of the last for release of the release bearing at separation of the transmission from the engine.

28. Mark the provision of an axis of a fork of switching off concerning RKPP case.

29. Turn out fixing bolts and remove a plate of the lower cover of a flywheel from transmission.

30. Turn out a bolt of fastening of transmission from the back party of the block of cylinders.
31. Accept all weight of the transmission on a jack, then turn out bolts of fastening of a case of transmission to the engine. Try to remember the adjusting provision of each of bolts and the arms fixed by them. Once again make sure that nothing prevents dismantle of a box.
32. Having turned out fixing bolts, shift a jack with the transmission installed on it to the left, removing assembly of transmission from the directing pins, then incline a box in differential for the purpose of office it from a stretcher up.
33. Lower a jack and take assembly of RKPP from under the car. Take freely put directing pins and remove them to the reliable place.

34. On models with coupling of "exhaust" type put one more marking of provision of a fork of switching off of coupling concerning RKPP case. Pay attention to a corner under which the fork is developed. this marking will help to enter correctly a fork into gearing with the release bearing at installation of transmission.



Installation is made upside-down. Pay attention to the next moments:
   a) Vents of main shaft RKPP before installation have to be greased with refractory lubricant (try not to allow hits of lubricant on a frictional clutch plate;
   b) Track that all directing pins were established;

   c) On models with coupling of "exhaust" type before installation place the release bearing so that the tag put on it in the form of an arrow specified up (grooves of a fork of switching off have to are turned on the engine forward); achieve combination put in the course of dismantle of landing tags of an axis (a fork have to will develop approximately under 60 ° to a case surface). At the same time the release bearing has to enter with guarantee gearing with a fork at installation of transmission. At the correct gearing of a fork with the bearing the tag on an axis of a fork has to be combined with put on a case;

   d) Before a vvorachivaniye of a hairpin of the left support of the power unit do not forget to grease its carving with the fixing sealant. Tightening of a hairpin has to be made with the required effort;
   e) Also tighten all other fixture with the required effort.
   f) Do not forget to replace epiploons of power shafts (see Replacement of epiploons). The description of procedures of installation of power shafts is provided in the Head Power shafts;
   g) Do not forget to adjust a coupling pedal (see the Head Stsepleniye);
   h) In conclusion, fill in necessary amount of gearbox oil of the required grade in the transmission (address the Head Routine maintenance).
