Steering mechanism and details of its installation

1. Protective panel of the left wing
2, 3. Forelock
4. Protective panel of the right wing
5. Stabilizer bar


At dismantle of the steering mechanism take measures excluding turn of a steering shaft, otherwise it is possible to damage a spiral wire of a safety cushion. For this purpose transfer the ignition key to situation "Parking", or wind a wheel with a seat belt and insert a wheel buckle into the lock.

1. Establish wheels in the provision of driving on a straight line. Lift a forward part of the car and establish on supports. Turn on the parking brake and remove both forward wheels. Remove protective panels of a case of the engine (if are provided).
2. Turn off the union of pressure head and return tubes of the hydraulic booster. Muffle tubes. Remove an arm from the steering mechanism.
3. Designate mutual orientation of the lower cardan hinge of a steering shaft and shaft of the steering mechanism. Turn off a coupling bolt and a nut of a collar (arrow).
4. Disconnect steering drafts.
5. Turn off bolts of fastening of collars of plugs of the stabilizer (for access to bolts of the steering mechanism).
6. Turn off nuts of fastening of the steering mechanism, raise a bar of the stabilizer and beat out bolts of fastening of the steering mechanism.
7. Separate an intermediate shaft from a shaft of the steering mechanism and get the steering mechanism on the right side of the car.
8. Check a condition of rubber plugs via which the steering mechanism fastens. In need of the plug replace.


1. Install the steering mechanism and attach the cardan hinge, having combined the tags put when dismantling.
2. Turn and tighten bolts and nuts of fastening of the steering mechanism with the set moment.
3. Attach steering drafts.
4. Tighten a coupling bolt of a collar of the cardan hinge.
5. Attach tubes of the hydraulic booster and tighten the union.
6. Establish a stabilizer bar.
7. Lower the car and remove air from a power steering contour.
