Removal

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. To slow down the car the parking brake and to establish an emphasis under back wheels.
2. To remove a tank of windscreen washer and to put it aside, without disconnecting a hose.
3. To raise and establish forward part of the car on a support.
4. To turn off a bolt of fastening and to disconnect a steering damper from an arm (a steering without hydraulic booster).
5. To turn off bolts of fastening of steering thirsts for a lath of the steering mechanism.
6. To take away drafts from the steering mechanism, having removed an arm and a clamping plate.
7. To turn off a bolt of fastening of a coupling collar of the lower shaft of the helmsman of a column, to shift a collar up and to disconnect the lower shaft from a shaft of a driving gear wheel of the mechanism of a steering.
8. To remove a sealant of a shaft of a steering column, having taken out it from an opening in a front board.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. To install the steering mechanism upside-down.
2. To connect steering drafts (see subsection 9.6), to replace a clamping plate with the new.
3. Finally a bolt of fastening of a collar to tighten the moment of 25 N · m (2,5 kgfs · l) after adjustment of a gap between a casing of a steering wheel and a casing of understeering switches (see subsection 9.2). To tighten the left bolts of fastening of a case of the mechanism of a steering the moment of 20 N · m (2,0 kgfs · l), and right – the moment of 25 N · m (2,5 kgfs · м).
4. On models with the hydraulic booster of a steering the giving bolt of hoses is tightened by the moment of 40 N · m (4,0 kgfs · м).
5. After installation of the steering mechanism to check and if necessary to adjust a convergence of forward wheels at service station. On models with the hydraulic booster of a steering to pump over system.
