Being self-stopped bolts and nuts surely replace with the new.

Operation of lifting and car installation on supports is connected with danger! Therefore before carrying out operation familiarize with Poddomkrachivaniye's Section and Introduction towage to the management.

1. Lift and establish the car on supports.
2. Remove a back part of system of release, address to the Section Removal, installation of system of release and tightness check.

3. Unscrew screws of fastening and take out the thermofilter (1).

4. Diesel engine: Remove the bottom facing of the car.
5. RKPP: Disconnect a rigidity edge at the central block of gear shifting.
6. AT: Disconnect an edge of rigidity (2). (3) – driveshaft.

7. Unscrew screws of fastening (1) and disconnect the forward driveshaft from a check point. Thus the coupling should remain on the driveshaft. That the driveshaft was not turned, hold it a tape key.

8. Disconnect the back driveshaft from the main transfer. Thus the flange should remain on the driveshaft.

9. Weaken directing plugs in driveshaft flanges by means of a cylindrical drift (= 10-12 mm, length = about 150 mm).

Bring a support under the driveshaft that it at removal did not bend under a big corner. Otherwise, in particular, at the hinge of equal angular speeds protective casings can be crumpled.

10. Unscrew bolts of fastening of an intermediate support, keeping her from a provorachivaniye. If necessary remove washers from bolts. At installation it is necessary to establish them on former places.

11. Remove the driveshaft from aligning pins on a check point and on a flange of the main transfer and take out a shaft back.
12. If it is necessary, disunite forward and back driveshafts on shlitsevy connection.



13 If forward and back driveshafts were disconnected, connect them. Thus pay attention to the markings put on both shaft. The ledge of a forward shaft should be between two ledges on a sharnirny fork. Before assembly shlitsevy connection grease with Molykote greasing. Close connection by a protective cover.
14 Fill cavities of both aligning plugs, each 6 g of universal greasing (MERCEDES 267/0, for example, to "Aral Langzeitfett H" or «Elf Multi») and establish the driveshaft into place.
15 Fix an intermediate support of the driveshaft the moment 30Нм.
16 Fix the back driveshaft to the main transfer by the efforts specified in Specifications.
17 Fix the forward driveshaft to a check point the efforts specified in Specifications.
18 AT: Fix a rigidity edge in front the moment 23Нм.
19 RKPP: Fix a cross-section edge of rigidity to the central block of switching the moment 23Нм.
20 Diesel engine: Establish into place the bottom facing of the car.
21 Fix the heat-shielding screen. If necessary replace nuts.
22 Establish a back part of system of release, address to the Section Removal, installation of system of release and tightness check.
23 Lower the car on wheels.
