Removal and RKPP and AT installation

Here removal of RKPP is described. Recommendations about removal of AT are provided separately.

At a detachment of the battery the memories given in electronic blocks, for example, memories of malfunctions of the engine are erased. Address recommendations of the Section Removal and installation of the rechargeable battery.

2. Lift and install the car on supports and remove system of production of the fulfilled gases, address the Section Removal and installation of system of release.
3. Disconnect a cable of the lever of switching of the reverse gear at RKPP.

4. Turn off bolts of fastening and disconnect a disk of the cardan hinge from RKPP. That the disk was not deformed, turn off only nuts, without touching bolts.

5. Take the driveshaft aside and remove from the aligning pin.

Tie the driveshaft a wire to a body. Do not allow its change in the hinge.

6. Turn off bolts of fastening and remove the holder of the lower guard of a motive compartment (1) and (2) and the heat-shielding screen (3).

1. Before installation check coupling, address the Section Removal, installation and check of coupling.
2. Check ease of the course of the bearing of switching off of coupling. Grease the bearing with plastic lubricant "Molykote Longtherm 2", address the Section Removal and installation of the mechanism of switching off of coupling.
3. Grease with a thin layer of plastic lubricant "Microlude GL 261" shlitsevy grooves of main shaft RKPP. You do not apply too much lubricant. Otherwise it can get on the frictional surfaces of coupling that will lead to its unsatisfactory work. The amount of the applied lubricant corresponds to the size of corn grain.
4. Include any transfer.

Check whether adjusting plugs (1) and (2) between the engine and RKPP stand still.

5. Raise a box and enter it horizontally into coupling. If at installation the main shaft is not fixed in the conducted clutch plate, turn it behind for a driveshaft flange a hand.

6. Screw bolts of fastening of Torx of RKPP to the engine. Do not forget about washers. The moments of an inhaling of bolts of Torx and bolts with a six-sided head are given in Specifications
7. Raise RKPP and fix a cross-piece by the moment given in Specifications.
8. Install the working cylinder of the drive of coupling, address the Section Removal and installation of the working cylinder of coupling.
9. Grease fingers of draft of switching with plastic lubricant "Kluber Polylub GLY 801" and insert. Take away a stopper back.
10. Insert draft. Put on a finger of a washer and record a lock washer. For RKPP further execute paragraphs, starting with the item 9 of following "Performance order" for automatic transmission.
