Removal


Prevention

At installation of a power shaft it is necessary to use a new nut of fastening of a power shaft to a nave and a new lock ring of fastening of a power shaft in a transmission.


Removal of a washer from a power shaft


PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports. Remove a wheel.
2. Using a chisel or a screw-driver, remove a cap from a nave nut.
3. Take a pin of fixing of a nut of fastening of a power shaft.
4. Unscrew a nut of fastening of a power shaft to a nave.
5. Unscrew a nut, fixing steering bent for to a rotary fist and, using a stripper of spherical hinges, remove steering draft of a rotary fist.
6. Unscrew tightening a bolt, the fixing bottom lever of a suspension bracket to a rotary fist. Pay attention that the head of a bolt is located from a back part of a rotary fist.
7. Using a flat chisel or a screw-driver edge as a wedge, unclench a clip of the spherical hinge in the lower part of a rotary fist.
8. Using the lever, move the bottom lever of a suspension bracket down for extraction of the spherical hinge from a rotary fist.
9. Take away a nave from the car and take the external end of a power shaft from a nave. If the power shaft densely sits in a nave, temporarily screw a nut of a nave and, using a hammer, beat out a power shaft from a nave, at the same time tightening a car wheel outside.
10. Take a power shaft from a transmission. For this purpose insert between the internal CV JOINT and a transmission case mount and when the assistant will pull a power shaft outside, in strong sharp blow on the end of mount beat out a power shaft from gearing in a semi-axial gear wheel of differential. Instead of the taken power shaft insert into a transmission plastic or wooden caps.

Prevention

By no means it is impossible to lower the car on wheels with removed by two or one power shafts as it will lead to damage of bearings of a wheel.


11. On all models, except models with engines of 1,6 l, there is the quencher of krutilny fluctuations established on right driving shaft. If the quencher of krutilny fluctuations is established on a new power shaft, it is necessary to establish it on the same place.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Before installation of a power shaft check a condition of a sealing ring of a power shaft in a transmission.
2. Remove a lock ring from the internal end of a power shaft and establish a new lock ring.
3. Clear shlitsa for a power shaft in a nave and a transmission. Grease with a thin layer of greasing working edges of a sealing ring, a shlitsa of a power shaft and flanges.
4. Establish a power shaft in differential, having combined a shlitsa of a power shaft with flutes of semi-axial gear wheels of differential. Insert a power shaft into a transmission against the stop.
5. Combine internal shlitsa of a power shaft with grooves in a nave and insert a power shaft into a nave.
6. Insert a pin of the spherical hinge of the bottom lever into a rotary fist and fix a bolt.
7. Insert steering draft into the lever of a rotary fist and fix a nut.
8. Establish a washer and screw a nut of fastening of a power shaft to a nave, without tightening it it is final.
9. Establish a wheel and lower the car.
