7.6. Release bearing of coupling


1. On models with a flat flywheel for receiving access to the bearing it is enough to remove coupling from the transmission.
2. On models with a deep flywheel it is necessary to remove the transmission.
3. Turn off the bolt fixing a fork of switching off of coupling to an axis of the release lever.
4. Disconnect a coupling rope from the release lever.
5. Remove axes of the release lever, then remove a fork of switching off of coupling and the bearing.
6. After removal of the plug of the release bearing it is possible to replace an epiploon of an entrance shaft of the transmission.


1. Scroll the bearing and check ease of the course. Check bearing holders for existence of excessively free wheeling. Replace the bearing if it is necessary.
2. If it is necessary, replace nylon plugs of an axis of the release lever.


Installation is carried out upside-down removals. Grease the internal surfaces of plugs of an axis of the release lever and the external surface of the plug of the release bearing with molybdenic lubricant.
