Removal

Arrangement of a bolt of fastening of a forward part of the longitudinal lever of a back suspension bracket

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. In the presence take off caps, then weaken bolts of fastening of back wheels. Lift a back part of the car and fix on supports. Remove back wheels.
2. On models with the self-leveled back suspension bracket take off pressure in system, having let out the air via the valve in the luggage compartment.
3. On models with the catalyst unscrew, and remove the thermofilter of the exhaust system.
4. Measure length of the carving plug of a cable of the emergency brake acting from the regulator located on a back beam then for weakening of a cable of the emergency brake weaken a regulator nut.
5. Take a back part of a cable of the emergency brake from an arm on the bottom and exempt it from fastening brackets.
6. For reduction of losses of brake fluid uncover a popolnitelny tank of the brake system, close a tank mouth polyethylene and again screw a cover. It is necessary in order that the cover hermetically closed a popolnitelny tank.
7. Disconnect brake hoses from brake tubes on the forward ends of longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket. Close the ends of a hose and tube suitable traffic jams.
8. In the presence unscrew arms of ABS sensors and take an electrical wiring of sensors from arms on longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket. Using a soft wire, tie an ABS sensor arm to the car bottom.
9. Weaken nuts on the bolts fixing a forward part of longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket to the car bottom (see the drawing).
10. Support by a jack through wooden whetstone a back torsion beam.
11. Unscrew bolts, the fixing lower parts of shock-absorbers to longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket, then smoothly lower the jack supporting a back torsion beam.
12. Remove springs of a back suspension bracket.
13. Check reliability of support of a back beam, then unscrew nuts and take bolts, the fixing forward parts of longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket to the car bottom.
14. Take knot of a back torsion beam / longitudinal levers from under a back part of the car.
15. If necessary remove elements of the brake system, fasteners of a nave and the stabilizer of cross stability.
16. If necessary replace plugs of longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Establish all elements which were earlier removed from a back torsion beam / longitudinal levers.
2. Establish a back beam on a jack under the car.
3. Lift a back beam and fix by bolts forward parts of longitudinal levers to a car body. At this stage do not tighten a nut on bolts the required moment.
4. Establish springs of a back suspension bracket.
5. Lift back parts of longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket and bolts screw on them the lower parts амортизато a ditch. Tighten the required moment bolts of fastening of shock-absorbers. Take a jack from under a beam of a back suspension bracket.
6. In the presence establish arms of ABS sensors and fix electrical wire ку in arms on longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket.
7. Take traffic jams from brake hoses and tubes and connect them.
8. Insert a cable of the emergency brake into an arm on the bottom of the car and fix a cable by brackets.
9. Screw a nut of the regulator of a cable of the emergency brake on the carving plug at the same length, as before removal.
10. On models with the catalyst install the thermofilter of final system.
11. Establish back wheels, then lower the car on the earth and tighten bolts of fastening of wheels the required moment.
12. On models with the self-leveled back suspension bracket increase in system pressure to 0,8 bars.
13. Install the car on the flat horizontal platform, then arrange freight weighing 70 kg on each forward sitting and shake the car in order that all elements of a back suspension bracket rose on the places.
14. Working under the car, an okonchatel but tighten nuts on the bolts fixing forward parts of longitudinal levers of a back suspension bracket to the car bottom.
15. Check adjustment of the emergency brake, then remove polyethylene from under a cover of a popolnitelny tank and pump over the brake system.
