GENERAL INFORMATION

Prevention

At removal of the bottom forward frame it is necessary to use the adaptation for engine support. For removal of spherical hinges it is necessary to use a stripper of spherical hinges. At installation of the spherical hinge it is necessary to use new шплинт, fixing a nut of fastening of the spherical hinge from unscrewing.


Removal

Arrangement of a forward bolt of fastening of the bottom forward frame

Arrangement of a bolt of fastening of a back part of the bottom forward frame which also fixes a back part of the bottom lever

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. The bottom forward frame acts in film together with the bottom levers and the stabilizer of cross-section stability.
2. Before removal of the bottom forward frame support engine weight from the left support. For support of the engine use the special tool shown on fig. Use of the special Opel No. KM-263 tool for engine support. Alternatively support engine weight, using the load-lifting mechanism.
3. At existence remove caps of forward wheels, then weaken bolts of fastening of wheels. Tighten the hand brake, then lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports. Remove forward wheels.
4. Remove a reception exhaust pipe. On models with DOHC engines unscrew from the right side of a podmotorny frame an arm supporting a hose of an oil radiator.
5. On the one hand the car take шплинт, then unscrew the koronchaty nut, a fixing pin of the spherical hinge which connects the bottom lever from a resistant forward suspension bracket.
6. Using a stripper of spherical hinges, take the spherical hinge from a rotary fist.
7. Similarly remove the second spherical hinge on the other side of the car.
8. Check reliability of support of the engine, then unscrew two nuts, fixing a back support of the power unit to the bottom forward frame.
9. A jack through wooden whetstone support the bottom forward frame.
10. Unscrew six bolts, fixing the bottom forward frame to the car bottom. Thus keep in mind that back bolts also fix the bottom levers of a forward suspension bracket (see fig. An arrangement of a forward bolt of fastening of the bottom forward frame, the Arrangement of a bolt of fastening of a back part of the bottom forward frame which also fixes a back part of the bottom lever).
11. Lower a jack with the bottom forward frame and take a frame from under the car.
12. If necessary remove from the bottom forward frame the stabilizer of cross-section stability and the bottom levers of a forward suspension bracket.

Installation

Installation is made in sequence, return to removal taking into account the next moments...

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. If acted in film, establish стабилиза Torahs of cross-section stability and the bottom levers of a forward suspension bracket.
2. Tighten all nuts and bolts the demanded moment. Thus remember that bolts of fastening of a back part of the bottom frame to the bottom of the car should be tightened in some stages.
3. Fix the nuts, fixing pins of spherical hinges new шплинтами.
4. Establish a reception exhaust pipe.
5. On models with DOHC engines establish an arm of support of a hose of an oil radiator on the right side of the bottom forward frame.
6. Establish wheels and lower the car on the earth. Tighten bolts of fastening of wheels the demanded moment.
