6.3.4. Replacement of hinges of equal angular speeds

If during passing of turns knocks in the forward drive are heard, check hinges of equal angular speeds. If when rocking the drive shaft hand in the cross direction feels a side play or antisplash covers are torn, such hinge needs to be replaced. It does not make sense to disassemble the hinge practically. This laborious work, and at the torn cover the dirt which got to the hinge already put its details out of commission. Separately they cannot be replaced therefore the most optimal solution — to replace the hinge assembled and its antisplash cover. Emergence of traces of lubricant on the hinge indicates that the cover is torn.
If during operation are noticed begin to flow oils in the place of connection of the drive of a forward wheel to the transmission, replace an epiploon of the internal hinge (see. "Replacement of epiploons of the transmission").
It will be required to you: passatizh, the screw-driver, the hammer, a drift from soft metal.
1. Remove the drive of a forward wheel from the car (see. "Removal and installation of drives of forward wheels").
2. Clamp a drive shaft in a vice with overlays of sponges from soft metal.
3. Squeeze passatizham the unbent short moustaches of an internal collar of a cover of the internal hinge...
4.... remove the collar lock...
5.... also remove a collar.
6. Similarly remove an external collar of a cover.
7. Shift an antisplash cover on a shaft and turn it inside out.
8. By means of a drift bring down the internal hinge from a shaft, putting effort to a hinge holder.
9. Check availability of lubricant in the new hinge. In it 80 cm3 of SHRUS-4 lubricant have to be put. If it seems to you that lubricant is not enough, add it: excess lubricant will not prevent.
10. Installing the hinge, get it on a drive shaft weak blows of the hammer through a wooden pro-rate on an external end face of a shaft along its axis before fixing of the hinge on a shaft. At installation of the hinge you watch that dirt did not get to it.
11. Install an antisplash cover on the hinge case.
12. At installation of a cover of the internal hinge sustain the size from a shaft end face to a small edge of an antisplash cover, equal 210 mm, and carefully tighten collars by means of special pincers.
13. For replacement of the external hinge remove its external and internal collars it is similar to how it was done for the internal hinge.
14. Shift an antisplash cover on a shaft and turn it inside out.
15. By means of a drift bring down the external hinge from a shaft, putting effort to a hinge holder.
16. Install the external hinge similar to installation of the internal hinge. Difference is that in the hinge 40 cm3 of SHRUS-4 lubricant have to be put.
