9.4.1. Coupling removal



At work of coupling the dust containing asbestos and unhealthy, therefore is formed do not blow off a dust the compressed air and do not inhale it.

For coupling removal when the engine and a transmission are established in the car, it is necessary to use special tools, however it is possible to use and independently made tools. Before coupling removal attentively read this section.

The design of coupling allows to replace a disk of coupling, press a disk, vyzhimny the bearing and a sealing ring of the directing plug without removal of the engine or a transmission from the car.

1. Tighten the hand brake, then lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports.
2. Unscrew bolts and remove a protective plate from the basis of a case of coupling.
3. On models to the middle of 1988 unscrew a stopper (it is specified by an arrow in drawing on the right) from a face cover of a case of a transmission.
4. On later models which do not have jams, unscrew a nut and remove the grounding tire from a transmission end face.
5. Establish the corresponding container under a cover in a transmission end face, then unscrew bolts and uncover.
6. Note an arrangement of the bolt, grounding fixing the tire.
7. Remove laying.
8. Using special flat-nose pliers, remove a lock ring from the end of an entrance shaft.
9. Using a 12-faced key (drawing at the left), unscrew a bolt from an end face of an entrance shaft.
10. Take an entrance shaft from a nave of a disk of coupling.
11. It is for this purpose recommended to use the No. KM special tools - 556 - 1-and and KM-556-4, but it is possible to use also the tools made independently. The tool fastens to a transmission end face bolts of fastening of a cover. The sizes of the tool should correspond to transmission type.
12. Alternatively screw in bolt М7 in an end face of an entrance shaft of a transmission (drawing at the left) and for a bolt take a shaft to the limiter (drawing on the right). If the entrance shaft is established very densely in a transmission, for its extraction use an inertial hammer.
13. For removal of coupling it is necessary to move press a disk, overcoming resistance of a diafragmenny spring, otherwise coupling will not pass between a flywheel and an end face of a case of coupling.
14. For this purpose it is necessary to use the No. KM526-A special tool. If necessary make independently special tool of a steel strip according to drawing. For simplification of installation of independently made tool at end faces of the tool make facets. The groove on one of edges of the tool is necessary for passing of a rivet of a press disk.
15. After pressing of a pedal of coupling by the assistant establish clips on edge of a casing of a press disk, inserting disks into apertures on casing perimeter.
16. For uniform installation of clips on perimeter of a press disk of coupling by a wrench for a bolt of fastening of a pulley of a cranked shaft turn gradually cranked shaft.
17. After installation of all clips the assistant should release a coupling pedal.
18. Gradually and consistently weaken, and then unscrew completely six bolts of fastening of a leading part of coupling to a flywheel.
19. For access to bolts of fastening of a leading part of coupling to a flywheel consistently turn a cranked shaft of the engine.
20. Note on a flywheel the provision of the label which is combining with a groove on a case of coupling.
21. Moving down, take coupling knot from a coupling case. Keep in mind that the frictional disk can drop out at coupling removal.
22. Note the provision of a frictional disk of coupling. The smaller ledge of a nave should be directed to a flywheel.
23. For removal of clips fix a leading part of coupling in a vice with soft sponges (the arrow specified an arrangement of the clip established on a press disk of coupling).
