GENERAL INFORMATION

Prevention

At installation it is necessary to use new шплинт fastenings of a nut of the spherical hinge and a nut of fastening of the stabilizer of cross-section stability to the bottom lever.

Elements of fastening of the bottom lever of a forward suspension bracket

Removal

Arrangement of the forward sharnirny bolt, fixing the bottom lever of a forward suspension bracket to the bottom forward frame

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. At existence remove a wheel cap, then weaken bolts of fastening of a wheel. Tighten the hand brake, then lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports. Remove to a sootvetstvo a yushchy forward wheel.
2. Unscrew a nut, fixing the end of the stabilizer of cross-section stability to the bottom lever. Remove tarelchaty washers and rubber pillows.
3. Take шплинт and unscrew a koronchaty nut of the spherical hinge connecting the bottom lever of a forward suspension bracket from a resistant forward suspension bracket.
4. Using a stripper of spherical hinges, take a pin of the spherical hinge from a rotary fist.
5. Unscrew two sharnirny bolts, fixing the bottom lever to the bottom forward frame (see fig. An arrangement of the forward sharnirny bolt, fixing the bottom lever of a forward suspension bracket to the bottom forward frame).
Keep in mind that the back sharnirny bolt of the bottom lever also fixes the bottom forward frame to the car bottom.
Disconnect the bottom lever from the bottom forward frame and take it from under the car.
Keep in mind that on some models with engines of 2,0 l. the quencher of fluctuations which fastens bolts to the right bottom lever is established. In this case, if replacement of the right bottom lever is made, rearrange a quencher of fluctuations on the new lever.
Keep in mind that at installation of the bottom lever metal plugs in back fastening of the lever can be not used.
Check a condition of the bottom lever of a forward suspension bracket and if necessary, replace it. Dealers of Opel have on sale modified strengthened levers of a forward suspension bracket.
The modified bottom lever differs on flange existence on a forward part of the lever and is established on cars from the middle of 1993.
The modified strengthened lever of a forward suspension bracket is interchangeable with the lever which was earlier established on cars.

Installation

Size of compression of the rubber pillow, cross-section stability fixing the forward stabilizer to the bottom lever
1= 38,0-39,0 mm

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Establish the bottom lever on the bottom forward frame, then screw in two sharnirny bolts and tighten them the demanded moment. Thus hold the bottom lever in horizontal situation. A tightening of a back bolt make in some stages.
2. Establish a pin of the spherical hinge of the bottom lever in a rotary fist and fix a nut, having tightened it the demanded moment. Using new шплинт, fix a nut from unscrewing.
3. Connect the stabilizer of cross-section stability to the bottom lever. Thus keep in mind that the tarelchaty washers, fixing rubber pillows, should be directed by the concave party to the bottom lever.
4. Tighten nuts of fastening of the stabilizer to the bottom lever so that rubber pillows were compressed on a certain size (see fig. Size of compression of the rubber pillow, cross-section stability fixing the forward stabilizer to the bottom lever). If necessary replace rubber pillows.
5. Establish a wheel and lower the car. Tighten bolts of fastening of a wheel and at existence establish a wheel cap.
Check and, if necessary, adjust corners of installation of forward wheels.
