7.5. Coupling (models with a profound flywheel)


1. Because of the bigger size of a flywheel on these models for removal of coupling it is necessary to remove the engine or the transmission.
2. After removal of the engine or the transmission notice the provision of the mark in a flywheel coinciding with a cut on a coupling casing. Then gradually turn off six fixing bolts and remove coupling.


See subsection 7.4.


1. Check that elements of coupling and a flywheel were pure, and on them oil or lubricant did not get. Before installation grease vents of a frictional disk with molybdenic lubricant.
2. Establish couplings on a flywheel, having combined a cut on a casing of coupling with a mark in a flywheel. Establish six fixing bolts and spring washers and slightly twirl bolts.
3. Center the provision of clutch plates by means of a round lomik or the long screw-driver inserted into an opening of a frictional disk. For this purpose it is also possible to use the special centering tool.
4. After centering of clutch plates gradually tighten fixing bolts of a casing of coupling till the required inhaling moment in a diagonal order.
5. Install the engine or the transmission on the car.
6. Check adjustment of a rope of coupling.
