Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

Surely replace the self-stopped bolts and nuts with new.

Lifting operation and installations of the car on supports is connected with danger! Therefore before carrying out operation study Poddomkrachivaniye's Section and towage of Introduction to the management.

1. Lift and install the car on supports.
2. Remove a back part of system of release, address the Section Removal, installation of system of release and check of tightness.

3. Unscrew screws of fastening and take out the thermofilter (1).

4. Diesel engine: Remove the lower facing of the car.
5. RKPP: Disconnect a stiffening rib at the central block of gear shifting.
6. AT: Disconnect a stiffening rib (2). (3) – driveshaft.

7. Unscrew screws of fastening (1) and disconnect the forward driveshaft from the check point. At the same time the coupling has to remain on the driveshaft. That the driveshaft was not turned, hold it a tape key.

8. Disconnect the back driveshaft from the main transfer. At the same time the flange has to remain on the driveshaft.

9. Weaken the directing plugs in driveshaft flanges by means of a cylindrical drift (= 10 – 12 mm, length = about 150 mm).

Bring a support under the driveshaft that it at removal did not bend under a big corner. Otherwise, in particular, at the hinge of equal angular speeds protection covers can be crumpled.

10. Turn off bolts of fastening of an intermediate support, keeping it from a provorachivaniye. If necessary remove washers from bolts. At installation they need to be established on former places.
