GENERAL INFORMATION

Prevention

For coupling removal when the engine and the transmission are installed in the car, it is necessary to use special tools, however it is possible to use also independently manufactured tools. Before coupling removal attentively read this section.


Removal

Unscrewing of a nut of fastening of the tire of grounding

Removal of a cover from a transmission end face

Independently manufactured tool for extraction of an entrance shaft of the transmission from a clutch plate nave

The clip installed on press a clutch plate

Arrangement of the clip installed on press a clutch plate

Removal of knot of coupling from a coupling case

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. In the presence take off a cap from the left forward wheel, then weaken bolts of fastening of a wheel. Tighten the emergency brake, then lift a forward part of the car and record on supports. For improvement of access remove a wheel. On models with DOHC engines remove an engine mudguard.
2. Unscrew bolts and remove a protective plate from the coupling case basis.
3. Unscrew a nut and remove the grounding tire from a transmission end face (see rice. Unscrewing of a nut of fastening of the tire of grounding).
4. Install the corresponding container under a cover in a transmission end face, then unscrew bolts and uncover (see rice. Removal of a cover from a transmission end face). Note an arrangement of a bolt, the fixing grounding tire. For improvement of access remove a protective arch of a wheel.
5. Remove laying.
6. Using special flat-nose pliers, remove a lock ring from an end face of an entrance shaft.
7. Using a dodecahedral key, unscrew a bolt from an end face of an entrance shaft.
8. Take an entrance shaft from a clutch plate nave. It is for this purpose recommended to use special tools No. KM-556-1-A and KM-556-4, but it is possible to use also the tools manufactured independently (see rice. Independently manufactured tool for extraction of an entrance shaft of the transmission from a clutch plate nave). The tool fastens to a transmission end face bolts of fastening of a cover (see rice. Use of the tool manufactured independently for moving of an entrance shaft of the transmission to a clutch plate). The sizes of the tool have to correspond to transmission type.
9. Alternatively screw in M7 bolt in an end face of an entrance shaft of the transmission and for a bolt take a shaft to the limiter. If the entrance shaft is installed very densely in the transmission, for its extraction use the inertial hammer.
10. For removal of coupling it is necessary to move press a disk, overcoming resistance of a diaphragm spring, otherwise coupling will not take place between a flywheel and an end face of a case of coupling.
11. For this purpose it is necessary to use the special tool No. KM 526-A. If necessary make a samostoyatel but the special tool of a steel strip according to rice. The clip installed on press a clutch plate. For simplification of installation of independently manufactured tool at end faces of the tool make facets. The groove at one of edges of the tool is necessary for passing of a rivet of a press disk.
12. After pressing of a pedal of coupling by the assistant establish clips on edge of a casing of a press disk, inserting clips into apertures on casing perimeter (see rice. Arrangement of the clip installed on press a clutch plate). For uniform installation of clips on perimeter of a press clutch plate, a wrench for a bolt of fastening of a pulley of a bent shaft, turn gradually bent shaft.
13. After installation of all clips the assistant has to release a coupling pedal.
14. Gradually and consistently weaken, and then unscrew completely six bolts of fastening of the leading part of coupling to a flywheel. For access to bolts of fastening of the leading part of coupling to a flywheel consistently turn a bent shaft of the engine. Note an arrangement of the tag which is combined with a groove on a coupling case on a flywheel.
15. Moving down, take coupling knot from a coupling case (see rice. Removal of knot of coupling from a coupling case). Keep in mind that the frictional disk can drop out at coupling removal. Note an arrangement of a frictional clutch plate. The smaller ledge of a nave has to be directed to a flywheel.
16. For removal of clips fix the leading part of coupling in a vice with soft sponges.
