1. Disconnect a wire of the minus plug of the accumulator.
2. Remove a broad tank of the cooling system and a tank of windscreen washers of a windshield.
3. Take off driving belts of the generator and pump of system of strengthening of steering.
4. Weaken bolts of the right forward wheel. Lift and fix a forward part of the car. Remove a wheel. Remove isolation of an arch of a wheel.
5. Install the cylinder of the first piston in the top dead point.
6. Unscrew two through bolts (A) and remove the draft regulating the shift of the engine (V) and an arm of draft.
7. Remove spark plugs.

8. Remove the top cover of a gas-distributing belt and laying.

9. If you are going to reuse a gas-distributing belt, make on it adjusting tags.

10. Check synchronizing tags of asterisks of camshafts. Tags on asterisks of shaft have to be combined with tags on a back cover of a belt.
11. Unscrew two bolts (arrow) and remove a natyazhitel of a belt.
12. Weaken a tension of a belt and take off a belt.
13. To remove a camshaft asterisk, uncover a head and stop a shaft a wrench (shooter). Twist a bolt of an asterisk and remove an asterisk.
14. Remove the top intermediate pulley.
15. Unscrew a bolt of a pulley of a bent shaft, previously having stopped a flywheel.
16. Check synchronizing tags and remove a pulley.
17. Remove the lower cover of a belt and laying.
18. Remove the directing belt disk.
19. If you are going to reuse a belt, make an adjusting tag on a belt opposite to an opening in an asterisk of a bent shaft. Take off a belt.


1. Check a belt (see subsection 3.1.7.).
2. Check whether the natyazhitel of a belt proceeds, if necessary replace a natyazhitel.
3. Measure the acting part of a rod of a natyazhitel. If the received size does not conform to technical requirements, replace a natyazhitel.


1. Carefully clean a forward part of the engine.
2. Establish an asterisk of a bent shaft (if you removed it) and combine a tag of a synchronizing asterisk with a tag on the block of cylinders (A) and establish an asterisk clamp (In).
3. Grease the lower intermediate rod with sealant, establish a pulley and tighten a bolt till the required inhaling moment.
4. Put on a belt, using adjusting tags.
5. Put on the directing disk of a belt and the lower cover of a belt.
6. Establish a pulley of a bent shaft and tighten a pulley bolt.
7. Establish the top intermediate pulley and tighten an assembly bolt.
8. Establish asterisks of camshafts. The flange of a forward asterisk has to be directed outside, and a flange of a back asterisk inside. Check that synchronizing tags on asterisks and on a back cover of a belt were combined. Tighten bolts of asterisks till the required inhaling moment.
9. Put on a belt asterisks of camshafts, using adjusting tags.
10. By means of a vice, press a rod of a natyazhitel. Insert a shtoporny pin with a diameter of 1,27 mm into openings of a casing and a rod of a natyazhitel.
11. Establish a natyazhitel and tighten his bolts. Get the lock probe of a rod.
12. Turn a bent shaft clockwise on two whole revolutions. Check synchronizing tags.
13. Establish the remained details.
