Ignition lock casing

And – a persistent washer;
In – fixing springs


PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove a steering column from the car.
2. Using a screw-driver edge as the lever, release ignition lock casing clamps, then turn a casing counterclockwise and remove it from a steering column (see rice. Elements of a steering column without adjustment of a tilt angle).
3. For removal of the bearing from a casing of the lock of ignition release two clamps of the bearing and, using the tubular mandrel established on an external ring of the bearing beat out the bearing. At installation of the new bearing check that the persistent washer and the fixing spring are correctly established (see rice. Ignition lock casing).
4. Unscrew screws with a secret head and remove an ignition lock casing. Do not remove at the same time the switch and the cylinder of the lock of ignition to keep their relative positioning.
5. If the steering column is installed in the car, unscrew top tightening a bolt of fastening of the elastic coupling to a steering shaft.
6. Take a steering shaft from a steering column.
7. Temporarily establish a plastic centering washer in the lower part of a pipe of a steering column.
8. Establish a steering shaft in a pipe of a steering column. If the steering column is installed in the car, connect a steering shaft to the elastic coupling and screw in top tightening a bolt of fastening of the elastic coupling, but do not tighten it finally.
9. Put the lock of ignition and fix it by screws with a secret head.
10. Establish an ignition lock casing with new clamps.
11. If the steering column is installed in the car, move a steering shaft up to an emphasis and tighten tightening a bolt of fastening of the elastic coupling.

2. Being careful and using a screw-driver edge as the lever, remove a spring of the regulator of a tilt angle of a steering column.
3. Unscrew two screws with a secret head fixing the ignition lock to a casing.
4. The casing of the lock of ignition fastens to the bearing case two bolts with the cut-off heads which need to be nakernit, drilled and unscrewed, using a special stripper for a vyvinchivaniye of bolts with the cut-off heads (see rice. A bolt arrangement from the ignition lock which is cut off by a head, fixing a casing on a steering column with adjustment of a tilt angle).
5. For replacement of a ring of the top bearing of a steering column remove a lock ring, press rings and a spring. For removal of a lock ring it is necessary to squeeze a spring. Be careful at removal of a lock ring as the spring is in the compressed state.
6. Before removal of the case of the bearing from a steering column, using a nut and a bolt, take pins. For extraction of pins it is desirable to use the special Opel KM-585 tool (see rice. Use of the special KM-585 tool for extraction of pins of fastening of the case of the bearing on a steering column with adjustment of a tilt angle).
7. Using the hammer and a drift, remove a ring of the lower bearing of a steering column. Establish a new ring of the lower bearing on a steering shaft.
8. Other rings of bearings of a steering column can be replaced only together with a casing.
9. If necessary remove the universal hinge of a steering shaft and clamps of the mechanism of adjustment of a tilt angle.
10. Assembly is made in the sequence, the return dismantling taking into account the next moments (see rice. Elements of a steering column with adjustment of a tilt angle).
