Service of a steering column
Removal and installation
Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.
With quick-drying paint mark the provision of a steering shaft in relation to the flexible coupling. Give the top coupling bolt of the coupling.
Remove a steering wheel.
On models with an adjustable inclination of a column lower it in the bottom situation.
Give screws of fastening of casings of a column. Clean casings aside, having removed them from the combined podrulevy switch and the ignition lock.
On models with a column of usual type it is necessary to give bolts of fastening of the top part of a column to the dashboard, then the column should be lowered slightly for removal of the top casing.
Disconnect electroconducting from the lock of ignition and the combined podrulevy switch and the ignition lock (from their back party).
Give the bottom nuts of fastening of a cover of an opening with which the lower part of a column fastens to a partition of an impellent compartment.
Remove a steering column from the car.
Installation is made upside-down.
Achieve combination of the labels of situation of a steering shaft put in the course of dismantle in relation to the flexible coupling and track, that the coupling bolt of the coupling got to a reciprocal groove on the helmsman to a shaft. Tighten a coupling bolt - at this stage only by hand.
Establish bolts of the top arm/arm of an inclination of a steering column and screw nuts of a cover of an opening. Make sure that the steering column is established without internal tension. Tighten nuts with effort of 9 ÷ 14 Nanometers, and arm bolts with effort of 13 ÷ 18 Nanometers.
Tighten a coupling bolt of the flexible coupling with effort of 39 ÷ 49 Nanometers.
To Poddomkratta a car front also make sure that the steering wheel freely rotates from an emphasis against the stop in both directions without breakthroughs and jamming points.
Remove a steering column.
Weaken screws of a fixing collar, wring out down and turn combined podrulevy the switch. Remove the switch from a steering column.
Remove a plastic bandage, give bolts of fastening of an arm of a cover of an opening, remove washers and remove an arm of a cover of an opening from a steering column.
By means of special flat-nose pliers remove a lock ring and washers from the top part of a steering shaft. Take a shaft from a column.
On models with adjustment of an inclination of a column (see an accompanying illustration) weaken a bolt of an arm of an inclination and a special nut. Remove an inclination arm from a column. Put arm components as their removal.
In case of need remove the ignition lock (see an accompanying illustration), having used a center punch and a hammer for an otdavaniye of fixing bolts of srezny type.
Cleaning and check of a condition of components
By means of solvent remove from metal components greasing traces.
Do not wash out in solvent of assembly of the lock of ignition and the combined podrulevy switch, and also any bearings of tight type is it is fraught with an irreversible exit of the listed components out of operation.
Check a steering shaft on existence of signs of wear, deformations and other damages. Special attention give to a condition of the universal (kardanny) hinge and the sites equipped with shlitsa.
Check a condition of lock rings and spring clips. The worn-out, damaged and stretched components replace.
Check freedom of rotation of the bottom bearing.
On a column of inclined type check on existence of signs of wear and damages components of the mechanism of adjustment of an inclination.
Check a cover plate on existence of signs of wear, deformation and other damages.
Replace all revealed defective components.
Components of a steering column
Assembly is made as it should be, the return to a dismantle order.
Before assembly grease with universal greasing the top and bottom bearings of a steering shaft, and also all moving components of the mechanism of adjustment of an inclination of provision of a column (if that is provided).
Track, that the top lock ring of a steering shaft located under the top bearing was to turn the rounded party е to the bearing.
At installation of an arm of a cover of an opening track correctness of placement of washers. Tighten axial bolts with effort of 16 ÷ 21 Nanometers.
On models with a column of inclined type tighten a bolt of an arm of an inclination so that the column smoothly moved at a control lever otpuskaniye an inclination and at the same time remained motionless when blocking lever.
Establish a column on the car.
