10.3.1. Removal and installation of power shafts



  1. Cock the parking brake.
  2. Uncover a wheel disk. Take a lock pin of a koronchaty stupichny nut and weaken a nut.

At the same time the car has to stand on the earth.

  1. Mark the provision of a forward wheel in relation to its nave that then the balanced wheel was possible it is established in its former situation. Turn out bolts of fastening of wheels at the car standing on the earth. To Poddomkratta a car front, establish it on props and remove forward wheels.
  2. Finally remove a stupichny nut. If the car is installed on the elevator, then at the same time it is possible to use the special tool (lever) for deduction which can be made independently. The tool fastens two bolts for fastening of a wheel.

Otpuskany a stupichny nut at the removed wheel, - the nave is blocked from a provorachivaniye by means of a metal level (1)

  1. Turn out tightening a bolt (shooter) of a spherical support. Pull the cross lever a hand down, at the same time the spherical support will slip out a rotary fist.

  1. Tie a power shaft a wire to a body that hinges at removal of one party were not bent against the stop.
  2. Take out a power shaft from a nave of a forward wheel a hand, having pulled at the same time a depreciation rack outside. If it is not possible, squeeze out the drive by means of a usual stripper.

Tightening of a nave from a shaft pin by means of a special stripper

  1. Beat out a power shaft from RKPP case. HUNDRED use for this purpose the special KM-460-2-A tool (to the left power shaft) or KM-460-1.

The party of the tool with a facet has to be turned towards RKPP. At removal of power shafts oil follows. Close an opening in RKPP case the corresponding stopper, for example, of OPEL (ET No. 9092869).

  1. If there is no specified tool in or if the power shaft got stuck at removal, beat out it a flat chisel. For this purpose previously uncover the CV JOINT.
  2. Put a chisel between the end of a shaft and an axis of a conic wheel and then beat out a power shaft.

After removal of a power shaft from a nave of a wheel try not to load the CV JOINT and not to move the car not to damage stupichny bearings. In a case need to move the car, it is necessary to insert a power shaft into a nave and to fix it by a lock-nut, or to pull together bearings by means of a long bolt with a nut and couples of washers. When performing all works connected with need of dismantle of a power shaft from RKPP case keep in mind that it is necessary to extend a power shaft only for the hinge, but not for a shaft. At removal and installation of a power shaft from a nave it is necessary to remember existence of the internal CV JOINT.


It is necessary to handle with a new power shaft with care. It should not lie a long time leaning on covers.


  1. The adjacent fillet of the external CV JOINT, and also its adjacent surface to the stupichny bearing should be cleared carefully.

The surfaces which are subject to cleaning

  1. Oil motive shlitsevy connection and installation sites of bearings.
  2. Establish a new lock ring in a shaft groove from RKPP.

Lock ring

  1. Insert a hand a power shaft into RKPP case opening. Then push a power shaft the screw-driver before fixing of a lock ring. Install the screw-driver on a seam fillet, but not on facing.

Position of the screw-driver at installation of a power shaft

  1. After fixing of a lock ring check reliability of landing of the CV JOINT, having pulled a hand for the external hinge.
  2. If the CV JOINT was uncovered, replace its consolidation and apply jellied lubricant on a cover. Tighten fixture of a steel cover with effort of 30 Nanometers, and aluminum - with effort of 18 Nanometers.
  3. Insert shlitsevy the end of a power shaft into a nave.
  4. Establish a new washer and screw by hand a new koronchaty nut, without tightening it.
  5. Insert a spherical support into a rotary fist. Insert a bolt behind. Tighten new самоконтрящуюся a nut with effort of 30 Nanometers (address an illustration).
  6. Establish forward wheels so that earlier put tags coincided. Lower the car on the earth and tighten bolts of fastening of wheels cross-wise with effort of 110 Nanometers.
  7. Tighten a stupichny nut with effort of 130 Nanometers. Ask the assistant to squeeze out a brake pedal, release a stupichny nut and again tighten it with effort of 20 Nanometers. In this situation tighten a nut on a corner the 90th hail.
  8. Insert the new forelock and unbend it. If the forelock is not inserted, slightly release a nut to the next opening under the forelock and insert the forelock.
  9. Check oil level in RKPP and if necessary, add oil (see the Head Nastroyki and routine maintenance of the car).
