10.11. Driving belt of the generator

MAPLE NEREBRISTY BELT

Removal

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Disconnect an air branch pipe and the air filter and the air chamber or the case of a throttle and remove it.
2. The correct tension of a belt provides its long operation. Do not draw a driving belt of the generator as generator bearings in this case can fail.
3. Periodically check a condition of a belt of the generator. If the belt is worn-out, torn or разлохмачен, it is necessary to replace it. It is recommended to have a spare driving belt of the generator in the car.
4. On models with the amplifier of a steering the driving belt of the generator also puts in action the pump of the amplifier of a steering.
5. For removal of a driving belt of the generator on l models 1,8 and 2,0 first of all remove a driving belt of the pump of the amplifier of a steering.
6. Weaken bolts and nuts of fastening of the generator so that the generator could be moved to the engine.
7. Remove a driving belt of the generator from pulleys.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Using a belt of a demanded standard size, establish it round pulleys. Adjust a tension of a driving belt of the generator, moving the generator from the engine, and tighten bolts of fastening of the generator.

Adjustment

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. For check of a tension of a driving belt of the generator it is necessary to use special devices, however manually it is possible to define a generator tension approximately. For this purpose, using moderate effort of a hand, press in the middle of the longest branch of a belt of the generator and check that the deflection of a belt makes about 13 mm.
2. Weaken bolts and nuts of fastening of the generator and, using wooden whetstone, take away the generator from the engine before achievement of a demanded tension of a belt of the generator and tighten nuts and bolts.
3. At existence establish and adjust a tension of a driving belt of the pump of the amplifier of a steering.
4. Establish an air branch pipe.
5. At installation of a new belt in process extra earnings it will be stretched, therefore it is necessary to check and repeatedly to adjust a belt tension through 400 km of run.

RIDGE MAPLE BELT

On later models with the amplifier of a steering the belt with automATI the chesky mechanism of a tension is established ridge maple. After installation it is not required adjustments of a tension of a belt.

Removal

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove the air filter and air a zabornik.
2. If the belt is repeatedly established, chalk note the direction of rotation of a belt.
3. Using a wrench, turn a roller of the automatic mechanism of a tension clockwise if to look on the right side of the car, and fix it in this situation. After reduction of a tension of a driving belt remove it from pulleys and return the tension mechanism to a starting position.
4. A jack through wooden whetstone support the engine.
5. Under the car unscrew the right support of fastening of the power unit from a body.
6. Lower a jack so that it was possible to take a driving belt between an arm and a body.

Installation

The correct arrangement of a ridge maple belt on the engine

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Pass a new belt between an arm and a body and lift the engine in a starting position.
2. Using a tap of the corresponding size, clear a carving for bolts of fastening of a support of the power unit. Put on a carving of bolts of fastening of a support of the power unit a thin layer of structure, to a prepyatstvo yushchy to unscrewing of bolts, then screw in bolts and tighten them the demanded moment.
3. Using a wrench, turn a roller of the mechanism of a tension counter-clockwise and establish a driving belt on pulleys (see drawing). Correctly place a belt on pulleys and release a roller of the mechanism of a tension.
4. Establish the air filter and an air inlet.
