How to replace the sail?
No matter how much I wanted to avoid it, but sometimes, after all, I have to repair my "iron friend". Therefore, consider in this article how to replace the sail in the car.
So, SHRUS is the hinge of equal angular velocities. It is necessary to transfer torque from the gearbox to the wheels. In order to independently determine the state of the CV joints, you need to perform just a few simple steps. Turn the wheels first to the right (then to the left) and slowly start moving. If you hear a characteristic crackle - it's time to do repairs. It is also worthwhile periodically inspecting the condition of the rubber seal: if there are signs of lubrication around it, it is necessary to replace it immediately. The reason is that the CV joints will work normally only with a sufficient amount of lubricant and in the absence of an aggressive environment.
Before starting the work, it is necessary to prepare a tool and a platform. When replacing the CV joints, raise the front part of the machine and install the supports.
Then execute in the following sequence:
- We remove the wheels.
- We loosen the nuts of the hubs, we first take outcaps and safety pins. In carrying out this procedure it is desirable to have an assistant: he presses the brake pedal, while the second at this time tears off the nut fixing the hub. This is due to the fact that they are very tightly twisted, so "ripping" them is quite difficult.
- Unscrew the ball joint.
- Completely we unscrew a nut of a nave.
- We disconnect a shaft from a check point.
- Next, we begin to replace the worn parts.
