26 — the Bolt (25 ÷ 35 Nanometer)
27 — the Bolt (43 ÷ 58 Nanometer)
28 — the Bolt (13 ÷ 19 Nanometer)



1. The design of power shafts is presented on an illustration.
2. Remove a rim cap.
3. Take шплинт and remove from a stupichny nut fixing nozzle and a felt washer.

4. By means of a face natural a long collar weaken a stupichny nut, but do not give it while it is final.

 If the head of a key does not pass in an opening in the central part of a wheel, remove the last and temporarily establish instead of it запаску.

5. Weaken nuts of fastening of the corresponding forward wheel. To Poddomkratta the car also establish it on props. Remove a wheel.

6. Give a stupichny nut, remove a washer. If the nave in the course of an otdavaniye of a nut starts to be turned. Jam mount between two wheel hairpins, having rested its second end against the earth, or a body element of the car.

7. For liberation of a pin of a shaft from stupichny assembly use a hammer and a brass drift. If components "became attached" also a shaft not страгивается from a place, it is necessary to remove a brake disk (see. Head Brake system) and to use 2-захватным a stripper.

8. Remove protection of a case and get under transmission assembly drain capacity.
9. Remove a clamp of fastening of a brake hose to a suspension bracket rack, then liberate a rack from assembly of a rotary fist (see. Head Suspension bracket and steering).

10. Having pulled assembly of a rotary fist outside, remove it from a pin of a power shaft (try not to damage a brake hose).

 If the brake hose disturbs removal of a rotary fist, remove a support of the brake mechanism and, without disconnecting a hose, tie up assembly to rounds of a rack-mount spring.

11. At dismantle of the left shaft use mount for accurate liberation of a pin of the internal CV JOINT from transmission. The casing of the internal hinge of the right shaft is passed in assembly of the basic bearing. For assembly liberation from a bearing arm turn out three bolts of fastening of the last to the bearing. Mark position of the bearing in relation to an arm and carefully remove shaft assembly.

 At removal of the left shaft on the models equipped with AT, there can be a situation when the internal hinge to liberate from transmission it will appear not probably. In that case it is necessary to remove at first the right shaft, then to pass a screw-driver through lateral gear wheels of differential and to beat out the left shaft from within.

12. Do not forget to replace epiploons of power shafts in a transmission case (see. Head Transmission).



Installation is made upside-down. Pay attention to the next moments:

a) At installation of assembly of the left shaft do not forget to plant a new lock ring in a flute on a pin of the internal CV JOINT. Sharply push a shaft in transmission, achieving a ring zashchelkivaniye in a reciprocal flute in a nave of a lateral gear wheel of differential (on the right shaft of such ring it is not provided, - fixing of assembly is provided with three bolts of fastening of an arm of the basic bearing;
b) At installation of the right shaft track, that bolts of fastening of the holder of the basic bearing were tightened with demanded effort;
c) Having established wheels, lower the car on the earth and tighten nuts of fastening of wheels with demanded effort (see. Head of Control and routine maintenance);
d) Track observance of effort of a tightening of a stupichny nut, do not forget to establish a felt washer and to replace шплинт;
e) Check level of transmission oil (model with RKPP) or lubricant liquid of differential (model with AT), in case of need make the corresponding adjustment (see. Head of Control and routine maintenance).
