4.20.1. Removal

GENERAL INFORMATION

Partition arrangement at the basis of the block of cylinders of the engine on engines of 1,7 l

Check of a side gap of a rod

Drawing tags of identification on a cover and the lower head of a rod

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove a head of the block of cylinders, the oil pallet and a pipe of an oil receiver. Unscrew bolts and remove a partition from the basis of the block of cylinders (see rice. A partition arrangement at the basis of the block of cylinders of the engine on engines of 1,7 l).
2. On all models if there is a deposit in the top part of the cylinder, remove it with a scraper from soft material. Existence of a step in the top part of the cylinder testifies to excessive wear of the cylinder and need of boring of the cylinder of the engine.
3. Check a side gap of all lower heads of a rod (see rice. Check of a side gap of a rod).
4. Using the hammer and a center punch or paint, note the provision of a cover of the lower head of a rod and number of the cylinder (see rice. Drawing tags of identification on a cover and the lower head of a rod).
5. Turn a bent shaft so that pistons of the first and fourth cylinders were installed in the lower dead point.
Unscrew nuts of fastening of a cover of the lower head of a rod of the first cylinder. Remove the lower cover of a rod.
Using the hammer handle, push out the piston of the block of cylinders up and take it from the block of cylinders.
On the lower head of a rod establish a cover of a rod and screw nuts that will allow to keep them in a set and not to mix in places.
Similarly remove the piston of the fourth cylinder.
Turn a bent shaft on 180 ° for installation of pistons of the second and third cylinder in the lower dead point and similarly remove pistons.
