GENERAL INFORMATION

Prevention

In 1989 a part of cars were made with height of installation of a pedal of a brake on 15 mm above a coupling pedal. Normal installation of a pedal of a brake on 4 mm is lower than a coupling pedal. If necessary adjust height of installation of a pedal of a brake for what change length of a pusher of the vacuum amplifier of brakes, rotating a fork on a pusher.


Distance measurement from a steering wheel to the center of an overlay of a pedal of coupling (a pedal in a starting position)

Distance measurement from a steering wheel to the center of an overlay of a pedal of coupling (the pedal is pressed against the stop)

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. At replacement of coupling or a cable of coupling it is necessary to make initial adjustment of a cable of coupling.
2. Using a roulette, measure distance from the center of a rubber overlay of a pedal of coupling to a steering wheel in a starting position of a pedal of coupling and write down the measured value. Press a coupling pedal against the stop and carry out similar measurement (see fig. Distance measurement from a steering wheel to the center of an overlay of a pedal of coupling (a pedal in a starting position), distance Measurement from a steering wheel to the center of an overlay of a pedal of coupling (the pedal is pressed against the stop)).
3. Define a course of a pedal of coupling for what subtract the first measurement from the second. The course of a pedal of coupling should correspond to technical requirements. Otherwise adjust length of a cable of coupling as follows.
4. In a motor compartment remove a bracket, fixing a carving tip of a cable of coupling to the squeezing lever and rotating a regulator, adjust a coupling cable. Regulator rotation clockwise increases a pedal course, and counter-clockwise – reduces it. Make repeated measurement of a course of a pedal and establish a bracket fixing a carving tip of a cable of coupling.
5. If coupling is maintained a long time, probably, adjustment of a cable of coupling will not give result. It testifies to wear of frictional overlays of a disk of coupling and need of replacement of a disk of coupling. Keep in mind that correctly adjusted pedal of coupling should be established slightly above a brake pedal. If the pedal of coupling and a pedal of a brake are established at one height, it testifies to need of adjustment of a cable of coupling. The pedal of coupling has no free wheeling.
