Replacement of kardanny hinges

Service of kardanny hinges is made in a complex. Remnabor includes a crosspiece, four needle roller bearings with cups, epiploons and lock rings. Differently as it is not recommended to make dismantling of kardanny hinges for replacement of components.

Do not clamp a sleeve of the driveshaft or the coupling of a sliding joint too hardly in a vice in order to avoid irreversible deformation of covers.


  1. Remove the driveshaft from the car. Mark the adjusting provision of a sliding joint and the flange holder of a crosspiece in relation to a shaft body.
  2. Separate from a shaft a sliding half.
  3. Remove from the kardanny hinge the lubricant union (if that is established).
  4. By means of pair of screw-drivers and a hammer take lock rings of cups of bearings in holders of a crosspiece.
  1. Clamp a sharnirny part of a shaft in a vice, having enclosed replaceable heads, on the one hand with external diameter it is slightly less than cup ø, with another - with internal is slightly more than diameter of cup (see an accompanying illustration).
  1. Squeeze out a cup of the holder until the crosspiece will not rest against a wall of the last.
  2. Take out a shaft from a vice and take the squeezed-out cup and rollers of the needle bearing from the holder.
  3. Again clamp a shaft in a vice and wring out a crosspiece in an opposite direction.
  4. Take out a shaft from a vice and remove a cup and rollers of the opposite needle bearing.
  5. Remove from a shaft a sliding half or a flange.
  6. Repeat procedures of the last five paragraphs (for a sliding half of a shaft or for a flange), having finished thereby dismantling of hinges (components of the kardanny hinge are shown on an accompanying illustration).
1 — needle roller bearings
2 — the holder of a crosspiece equipped with a flange
3 — lock rings
4 — the holder of a crosspiece from a shaft
  1. Clean openings in brackets of holders, having removed from their edges and walls any agnails and roughnesses.
  2. Grease rollers and cups of bearings with universal greasing.
  3. Partially fill a cup of one of bearings in corresponding the holder.
  4. Establish in the holder a new crosspiece, then fill a cup from the opposite side.
  5. Clamp the holder in a vice, pressing in it cups of bearings, at the same time watching, that rollers of bearings did not drop out.
  6. By means of a replaceable face head on diameter slightly less cup drown one of cups in the holder before complete opening of a flute under installation of a lock ring.
  7. The same do with an opposite cup.
  8. Establish lock rings, check axial люфт crosspieces - it should not exceed 0.02 mm.

The difference in thickness of opposite lock rings should not exceed 0.06 mm. In case of need center the provision of a crosspiece and cups of bearings.

  1. To Obstuchita a crosspiece a hammer for a gap choice between the holder and a lock ring also make sure that axial люфт a crosspiece does not exceed 0.02 mm.
  1. Make sure of freedom of rotation of the hinge in all directions. If the hinge rotates a little hardly, establish the driveshaft in a vice and slightly обстучите holders of a crosspiece a hammer, achieving centering of bearings (see an accompanying illustration).
  1. Repeat procedures of the last eight paragraphs for the opposite hinge of a shaft. Establish a shaft on the car.
