7. Using a screw-driver edge as the lever, take a sealing ring from differential.


1. Grease working edges of a new sealing ring with gearbox oil, then, using a tubular mandrel of the corresponding diameter, establish a new sealing ring in a differential nest.
2. Establish in a flute on the internal end of a power shaft a new lock ring and insert a power shaft into differential.
3. Install the spherical hinge connecting the lower lever of a forward suspension bracket from a resistant suspension bracket and screw a koronchaty nut on a pin of the hinge and tighten it the required moment. Insert the new forelock fixing a nut from unscrewing.
4. Establish a wheel, then lower the car on the earth and finally tighten bolts of fastening of a wheel. In the presence establish a wheel cap.
