GENERAL INFORMATION

Prevention

For removal and dismantling of a rack of a forward suspension bracket it is necessary to use a stripper of spherical hinges and the adaptation for compression of springs. At installation of a rack of a forward suspension bracket it is necessary to use new самоконтря щуюся a nut of fastening of the spherical hinge of a tip of the steering draft, a new lock ring of fastening of a power shaft to a transmission and a new nut of a nave.


Unscrewing of a ring nut

Removal

Unscrewing of a nut of the top fastening of a rack of a forward suspension bracket

Removal of a rack of a forward suspension bracket together with a rotary fist

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. At existence remove caps of wheels, then weaken bolts of fastening of forward wheels. Tighten the hand brake, then lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports. Remove the corresponding forward wheel.
2. At existence, remove the ABS sensor from a rotary fist and disconnect its electroconducting from a forward rack.
3. Remove from a rotary fist a support of a forward brake. Without disconnecting from a support a brake hose, using a soft wire, tie up a support to a body, thus do not stretch and overwind a brake hose.
4. Unscrew самоконтрящуюся a nut, a fixing pin of the spherical hinge of a tip of steering bent for to a rack of a forward suspension bracket.
5. Using a stripper, take a pin of the spherical hinge from a rack of a forward suspension bracket.
6. Unscrew a nut and take the external end of a power shaft from a nave of a forward wheel. Using a soft wire, adhere the end of a power shaft to a body.
7. In a motor compartment unscrew a nut of fastening of the top part of a forward rack. Thus hold a rod of a forward rack from a provorachivaniye a wrench (see fig. Unscrewing of a nut of the top fastening of a rack of a forward suspension bracket). When unscrewing a nut support a rack from falling.
8. Take a rack of a forward suspension bracket with a rotary fist from under a car wing (see fig. Removal of a rack of a forward suspension bracket together with a rotary fist).

Repair

Removal of a rubber element of the top fastening of a rack of a forward suspension bracket

Removal of the bearing from the top part of a rack of a forward suspension bracket

Removal of the top cup of a spring and dempfiruyushchy ring

Removal from a rod of the shock-absorber of a protective cover and rubber buffer

Shock-absorber extraction from a rack

The correct arrangement of the bottom round of a spring in a spring nest

Label combination on a dempfiruyushchy ring with an opening in a spring cup

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove from a rack of a forward suspension bracket a nave, the bearing of a wheel and a protective board of a brake disk.
2. Fix a rack of a forward suspension bracket in a vice with soft sponges and, using the special adaptation, compress a spring so that it departed from the top part. When using the special adaptation for compression of springs, watch, that rounds of a spring were reliably grasped and compression of a spring make from the opposite sides. The spring has very big effort of compression therefore use only very reliable tool. At all do not connect a spring a wire.
3. Fix a key a rod амортизато ра from a provorachivaniye and, using the second cap key, unscrew the central nut of fastening of a rod of the shock-absorber.
4. Remove a rubber element of the top fastening of a rack of a forward suspension bracket and the bearing (see fig. Removal of a rubber element of the top fastening of a rack of a forward suspension bracket, Removal of the bearing from the top part of a rack of a forward suspension bracket).
5. Remove the top cup of a spring, a dempfiruyushchy ring and a spring (see fig. Removal of the top cup of a spring and dempfiruyushchy ring).
6. Remove from a shock-absorber rod a protective cover and the rubber buffer (see fig. Removal from a rod of the shock-absorber of a protective cover and rubber buffer).
7. From the top part of a telescopic rack unscrew a ring nut and remove the shock-absorber. Because the nut is strongly tightened, overturn a rack and clamp a nut in a vice with soft sponges and, having inserted a bolt into the lever of steering draft, mount unscrew a rack from a ring nut.
8. Take the shock-absorber from a rack (see fig. Shock-absorber extraction from a rack).
9. Check the shock-absorber on signs of leakages of amortization liquid. Check on all length of a rod of the shock-absorber on absence of dot corrosion. Check the shock-absorber case on absence of mechanical damages. Establish the shock-absorber in vertical situation and check its work, moving a shock-absorber rod at full capacity. Also check operation of the shock-absorber, moving a shock-absorber rod up and down on distance of 50-100 mm. In all cases the rod of the shock-absorber should move smoothly with notable resistance. If the rod of the shock-absorber moves with breakthroughs or there are mechanical damages, the shock-absorber is subject to replacement.
10. Check a condition of a rubber emphasis and the bearing and, if necessary, replace them.
11. Establish the shock-absorber in a rack and fix it a ring nut.
12. Fix a rack in a vice with soft sponges and tighten a ring nut the demanded moment.
13. Establish a cylindrical spring so that its bottom end correctly settled down in the bottom nest of a spring (see fig. The correct arrangement of the bottom round of a spring in a spring nest).
14. Establish a rubber emphasis and a protective cover.
15. Establish the top cup of a spring and a dempfiruyushchy ring so that the label on a dempfiruyushchy ring was combined with an opening in a spring cup (see fig. Label combination on a dempfiruyushchy ring with an opening in a spring cup). The opening in a cup of a spring should be displaced on 90 ° from the spring end.
16. Grease the bearing and establish it so that the party with a visible racetrack was from above.
17. Establish a rubber element of the top fastening of a rack.
18. Screw a nut on a rod of the shock-absorber and tighten it the demanded moment. Thus hold a shock-absorber rod from a provorachivaniye the second wrench.
19. Slowly weaken the tool for spring compression. Check that extreme rounds of a spring correctly settled down in spring support.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Establish a rack of a forward suspension bracket in the car and screw the top nut of fastening of a rack, having tightened it the demanded moment. At a tightening of a nut hold a shock-absorber rod from a provorachivaniye the second wrench.
2. Establish the external end of a power shaft in a nave and fix it a nut.
3. Establish a pin of the spherical hinge of a tip of steering draft in a rack and fix new самоконтрящейся a nut, having tightened it the demanded moment.
4. Establish a brake support on a rotary fist.
5. At existence establish the ABS sensor on a rotary fist and fix electropro-vodka of the sensor on a forward rack.
6. Establish a wheel and lower the car. Tighten bolts of fastening of a wheel.
7. Check and, if necessary, adjust corners of installation of forward wheels.
