Removal, service and installation of rack-mount assemblies

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Hang out the car over the earth.
  2. Remove forward wheels.
  3. Release a nut of fastening of a bar of the stabilizer of cross-section stability to the corresponding bottom lever of a suspension bracket (see. Section Removal, check of a condition of components and installation of the stabilizer of cross-section stability).
  1. Release a nut (1) axial bolt of fastening of a fork of rack-mount assembly to the bottom lever of a suspension bracket.
  1. Take an axial bolt of a fork.
  1. Release coupling bolts and remove a fork (1) bottom support of rack-mount assembly.
  1. Open a cowl and through an aperture in a mudguard of a wheel arch release three nuts of fastening of rack-mount assembly to the basic block on a frame.
  1. Take rack-mount assembly from a wheel arch.

Dismantling

Design of rack-mount assembly of a forward suspension bracket

1 — the Nut
2 — the Top holder
3 — the Top insulator
4 — the Aligning washer
5 — the Top cup of a spring
6 — the Screw spring

7 — Nizhny an insulator
8 — Nizhny the holder
9 — the Boot
10 — the Bottom saddle of a spring
11 — the Shock-absorber
12 — the Buffer of a course of compression


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Clamp a rack in a vice with soft sponges and on some turns release a nut of a piston rod of the shock-absorber, - do not remove a nut finally.
  1. Clamp the bottom basis of rack-mount assembly in a vice with soft sponges and by means of the special adaptation compress a screw spring.
  1. Unscrew a nut of a piston rod and make rack dismantling.

Check

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Clamp the lower part of the shock-absorber in a vice with soft sponges and manually check smoothness and uniformity of a piston stroke of the shock-absorber in both directions.
  1. Having rocked a piston rod not less than three times, make sure of lack of signs of development of leaks.
  2. Visually estimate a condition of a screw spring.
  3. Check on existence of damages the top cup and the bottom saddle of a spring, also estimate a condition of the top and bottom rubber insulators.

Assembly

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Operating as it should be, the return to a dismantle order, establish into place components of rack-mount assembly, - track correctness of landing and - where it is required - input in gearing of all elements.
  2. Compress a screw spring and freely screw a nut of a piston rod.
  3. Clamp rack-mount assembly in a vice with soft sponges and tighten a nut of a piston rod with demanded effort (37 ÷ 46 Nanometer).

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Installation is made as it should be, the return to an order of dismantle of components, - track observance of requirements of Specifications of Head the Suspension bracket and a steering to efforts of a tightening of carving fixture.

The final tightening of fixture of a rack is made after car lowering on the earth.

  1. In summary drive away the car in a car-care center workshop for check and adjustment of corners of installation of forward wheels (see. Section Check and adjustment of corners of installation of forward wheels).
