16.20. Replacement of the plug of the longitudinal lever of a back suspension bracket
(models with SOHC engines)

GENERAL INFORMATION

Cutting of an internal flange from the plug of fastening of the longitudinal lever of a back suspension bracket

The correct arrangement of ledges on the plug of the longitudinal lever on models with the SOHC engine

Replacement of the plug of the longitudinal lever of a back suspension bracket can be made without removal of a back torsionny beam.

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. At existence remove caps, then weaken bolts of fastening of back wheels. Lift a back part of the car and fix on supports. Remove back wheels.
2. On models with a being self-leveled back suspension bracket remove pressure in system, having let the air out via the valve in a luggage compartment.
3. Disconnect brake hoses and the back ends of brake tubes from the car bottom.
4. A jack through wooden whetstone support a back torsionny beam.
5. Unscrew nuts and take the bolts, fixing forward parts of longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket to the car bottom.
6. Lower a jack so that access to plugs of longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket was possible. Be careful, that when lowering a jack not to deform brake tubes. For removal and installation of plugs it is desirable to use the special Opel tool. In the absence of the special tool replacement of plugs can be made with use of a long bolt, a nut, washers and a piece of a steel tube of the corresponding diameter.
7. Before removal cut off since the internal end of the plug a flange (see fig. Cutting of an internal flange from the plug of fastening of the longitudinal lever of a back suspension bracket).
8. For simplification of removal of the plug heat up a plug casing in the longitudinal lever of a back suspension bracket to 70 °. For heating do not use an open flame as a row located a fuel tank.
9. Take the plug from the longitudinal lever of a back suspension bracket.
10. Moisten the new plug with soap water and establish it into place so that ledges at an end face of the plug were located as is shown in fig. The correct arrangement of ledges on the plug of the longitudinal lever on models with the SOHC engine.
11. Similarly replace the plug from the second party of the car. Replacement of plugs should be made in pairs.
12. Using a jack, lift a back torsionny beam and fix bolts. Screw on nut bolts, without tightening them it is final. Take a jack from under the car.
13. Fix brake tubes and brake hoses on the car bottom.
14. Establish back wheels, then lower the car on the earth and tighten bolts of fastening of wheels the demanded moment.
15. On models with a being self-leveled back suspension bracket increase in system pressure to 0,8 bar.
16. Establish the car on an equal horizontal platform, then arrange cargo in weight of 70 kg on each forward sitting and shake the car in order that all elements of a back suspension bracket rose on the places.
17. Working under the car, an okonchatel but tighten nuts on the bolts, longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket fixing forward parts to the car bottom.
