3. Using a syringe, pump out liquid from a tank of the amplifier of a steering.
4. On models with a mechanical transmission disconnect draft of gear shifting from a transmission.
5. On models with petrol engines disconnect the electric socket of the sensor of oxygen.
6. Hook on the power unit the load-lifting mechanism and raise so that the weight of the power unit was perceived by the load-lifting mechanism.
7. Remove a front grille and, using a wire, connect a radiator with an air reflector.
8. Remove a front bumper.
9. Lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports. Remove both lobbies of a wheel.
10. Unscrew nuts and disconnect drafts of the stabilizer of cross-section stability from forward racks.
11. Remove steering drafts from rotary fists.
12. Unscrew the tightening bolts, fixing hinges of the bottom levers of a forward suspension bracket in rotary fists.
13. Using the corresponding lever, move down the bottom levers of a forward suspension bracket and take pins of spherical hinges from a rotary fist. If the pin of the spherical hinge sits densely in a rotary fist, use a screw-driver or a thin chisel as a wedge and weaken a fastening clip.
14. Remove a reception exhaust pipe.
15. Unscrew three bolts of fastening of a back support of the power unit to a transmission.
