2. Transfer the driveshaft on the workbench equipped with a vice.
3a. Mark the provision of a collar concerning a shaft (address to an accompanying illustration).
3b. Pатем remove lock rings (address to an accompanying illustration).

On models considered in the real Management bearings of crosspieces of kardanny hinges can be equipped with lock rings both external, and an internal design. External rings act in film by means of nippers, extraction from the landing flutes of internal lock rings will need a drift and a hammer.

4. Press a piece of a pipe or a face head of the corresponding diameter to a cup of one of bearings (the opravka should have internal diameter identical with a cup). To Opravk slightly smaller diameter establish since the opposite end of a cup and, having clamped assembly in a vice, squeeze out a cup outside (in a bigger opravka) approximately on 25 mm.

Try not to force out a cup completely from the landing nest in a collar cheek.

5. Final extraction of a cup is made by means of nippers.
6. Operating in a similar manner, squeeze out a cup of the opposite bearing.
7. Take sharnirny assembly from a collar and carefully it wipe. Make sure of absence задиров and scratches in landing nests in cheeks of homutny assembly.
8. For deduction of rollers fill cups of the new bearing dense greasing.

The instruction on greasing of the bearing is usually put in packing of a standard repair set and should be observed strictly.

9. Enclose sharnirny assembly in a collar and partially fill in a landing nest a cup of one of bearings. If the hinge is equipped with the lubricant union, track, that it appeared is developed in the same party, as the union of the hinge located since the opposite end of a shaft.
10. Enter a hinge body into a bearing cup, then partially fill a collar the second cup. Level the hinge between cups, then finally press the last in a collar, try not to damage boots.
11. Establish lock rings, in case of need sharply knock on a collar for the purpose of a usadka of rings in flutes. If the ring does not sit down even after a collar obstukivaniye, therefore, there was a jamming of one of needle bearings of a crosspiece, disassemble the hinge and repeat procedure.
12. Check axial люфт in the hinge (address to an accompanying illustration) – if it is more than 0.05 mm, pick up suitable lock rings. Rings are established by pairs of identical axis on about one thickness that there were no vibrations.
13. Establish the driveshaft on the car (see. Section Removal and driveshaft installation).
14. If hinges are equipped with lubricant unions, fill them greasing (see. Head of Control and routine maintenance of the car).
