10.1.3. Forward springs



Depending on car equipment in a suspension bracket the various springs, each time with the rubber support are put. For designation of springs on the bottom round the red or dark blue stroke is put, and also detail number is beaten out. At replacement put springs only with identical designation.


1. Designate paint the provision of forward wheels in relation to a nave. Thanks to it the balanced wheel after removal comes back to the same situation. Release bolts of wheels before car lifting. Raise the car in front and remove forward wheels.
2. Unscrew the shock-absorber from above for what substitute under the bottom lever a garage jack and, having enclosed wooden laying, raise the lever.
3. Remove the bottom protection of a motor compartment.
4. The spring of a suspension bracket is in the compressed condition. It needs to be compressed even more to release plates of a spring. Make it, using the corresponding adaptation.
5. Compress a spring a usual stripper. In firm workshops for this purpose use the special adaptation which is turning on the device for a tension (01а) (000 589 46 31 00), plates (01b), (01c) (000 589 79 63 00). Thus the natyazhitel of a spring should cover 8 rounds. Compress a spring until it cannot be taken out.


Put a natyazhitel in spring rounds so that they were reliably captured, and the natyazhitel did not slide off. Compress a spring at least in three points evenly located on a circle. The spring is strongly compressed, therefore apply only the stable tool. To avoid accident, do not connect spring rounds a wire.

6. If the new spring is put, removed slowly release.


1. Before installation investigate a rubber support on porosity or damages, if necessary – replace. Clear spring installation sites on the lever.
2. Establish a natyazhitel of a spring and slowly compress it.
3. Rotating to the right, put on a rubber support a spring. For simplification of installation it is possible to grease a support with liquid soap or glycerin.
4. Put a spring so that the end of the bottom round sat on an emphasis of a plate of a spring in the lever.
5. Slightly raise the cross-section lever by means of a garage jack, insert the top end of the shock-absorber. In front of a motor compartment put a shock-absorber washer, screw up a nut on a rod with the moment of 15 N of m. Insure her a lock-nut with the moment of 30 N of m.

When lifting the lever watch to lifting the car.

6. Slowly unclench a spring, thus watch the correct landing of a rubber support in the bearing basis of a body and from below on the lever.
7. Remove a garage jack.
8. Put a covering of a motor compartment.
9. Put on wheels, observing marking of their former situation earlier put with paint. Screw wheels. Lower the car on wheels and in a crosswise order tighten bolts of wheels with the moment of 110 N of m.
10. Check in a workshop car level on the forward bridge.
11. Establish headlights.
