Removal

Arrangement of bolts of fastening of the left support of the transmission

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove a weight wire from the accumulator.
2. In a motor compartment weaken tightening a bolt, the fixing rod of the mechanism of the choice of transfers to draft. Separate a rod of the mechanism of the choice of transfers from draft for what move a rod to a partition of a motor compartment.
3. Remove a fastening bracket, then separate a carving tip of a cable of coupling from the squeezing lever for what previously move the lever to a partition of a motor compartment. Remove a coupling cable cover from an arm on a case of the transmission and move a coupling cable aside.
4. Disconnect the electric socket from the switch of lamps of a backing which is located from the forward party of the transmission over the left fixing arm.

11. Unscrew a nut and remove the grounding tire from a cover in a transmission end face.
12. Install the corresponding container under a cover in a transmission end face, then unscrew bolts and uncover. Note an arrangement of a bolt which fixes also the grounding tire. For improvement of access to a cover remove a wheel arch insert.
13. Remove laying of a cover.
14. Using special flat-nose pliers, remove lock rings from the internal ends of power shafts.
15. Unscrew a bolt from an end face of an entrance shaft of the transmission.
16. Take an entrance shaft of the transmission from a clutch plate nave. If coupling repair is not required, it can be not unscrewed from a flywheel.
17. Support by a jack through wooden whetstone the transmission.
18. Remove the left support of the transmission for what unscrew two bolts fixing a rubber pillow to a body of the car and three bolts fixing a support arm to the transmission (see rice. Arrangement of bolts of fastening of the left support of the transmission).
19. Unscrew bolts and remove a protective plate from the coupling case basis.
20. Check reliability of support of the transmission, then unscrew the remained bolts of fastening of the transmission to the engine.
21. Lower the transmission and take it from under the car.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Using a tap of M10x1,25, clear in a body a carving for bolts of fastening of a rubber pillow of the left support of the transmission.
2. On models with a flat flywheel it is the most convenient to make installation of coupling after installation of the transmission.
3. Place the transmission under a forward part of the car on a jack with wooden whetstone.
4. Lift the transmission and screw in the lower bolts of fastening of the transmission to the engine, but do not tighten them finally at this stage.
5. Establish the left support of the transmission, at the same time for fastening of a rubber pillow to a body use new bolts. Tighten the required moment all bolts of fastening of the left support of the transmission.
6. Tighten the required moment earlier screwed in bolts of fastening of the transmission to the engine and take a jack from under the transmission.
7. If acted, establish coupling. Move an entrance shaft of the transmission to a clutch plate nave.
8. Screw in a bolt in an end face of an entrance shaft of the transmission and establish a new lock ring.
9. Using new laying, establish a cover in an end face of the transmission and fix by bolts, having tightened them the required moment. Check that the bolt fixing the grounding tire is established on the place.
10. Install the tire of grounding of the transmission on a bolt and fix by a nut.
11. Establish and fix by bolts a protective plate on the basis of a coupling case.
