Replacement of an epiploon of a leading gear wheel of differential

Extraction of epiploons of leading gear wheels back and forward (4WD models) of differentials is made in an identical manner.


1. Weaken nuts of fastening of back wheels. To Poddomkratta a car back also establish it on props. Prop up forward wheels protivootkatny boots. Remove wheels, it is necessary for more exact measurement of a pretightness of a leading gear wheel.
2. Disconnect the driveshaft from differential (see. The section Removal and driveshaft installation), shift it aside and tie up a wire to frame elements.
3. By means of a dinamometrichesky key measure a torque rotations (pretightness) of a leading gear wheel (address to an accompanying illustration). Write down result of measurement.
4. By means of a chertilka or a center punch mark situation from each other axes of a gear wheel, a fixing nut and a connecting flange.
5. Count quantity of open rounds of a carving from a face surface of a nut to a cut of an axis of a gear wheel, result write down.
6. Fix a flange from a provorachivaniye by means of the special adaptation, or having passed in an opening of fastening of a collar of the kardanny hinge a big screw-driver and having jammed it under the arm located behind, an edge of rigidity of a case, or tubular section of the bridge (address to an accompanying illustration) and release a nut of a leading gear wheel.
7. Thaw a gear wheel nut.
8. Remove a connecting flange, in case of need use a stripper (address to an accompanying illustration).

Do not try to hook at all a flange the lever, or to bring down it a hammer!

9. Take from the landing nest an old epiploon (address to an accompanying illustration).
10. Grease sponges of a new epiploon with high-temperature greasing and evenly begin to knock it in the landing nest. Track perpendicularity of landing of an epiploon, as an opravka it is possible to use a face head of the suitable size, or a piece of a pipe of the corresponding diameter (address to an accompanying illustration).
11. Having achieved combination of the components of landing labels put in the course of dismantle, establish into place a connecting flange, – in case of need tighten a flange a nut, but at all застукивайте it into place a hammer.
12. With not stiffening hermetic grease shlitsa in the flange center.
13. Establish a washer (if it is provided) and carefully tighten a nut so that the axis of a gear wheel acted over its face surface on the quantity of rounds of a carving noticed earlier (see paragraph 5).
14. Measure a torque of rotation of a gear wheel, then tighten a nut for compensation of the changes connected with installation of a new epiploon a little more, the torque should be a little (but no more than on 0.6 Nanometers) more than at an old epiploon.
15. Connect the driveshaft, establish to the place of a wheel, lower the car on the earth and tighten wheel nuts with demanded effort (see. Head of Control and routine maintenance of the car).
