 Before removal of the driveshaft wind metal parts with rags or rubber material since at removal these parts can damage rubber protection covers.

1. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.
2. Install the AT selector lever in the situation "N"/include neutral transfer (RKPP)
3. Release the parking brake.
4. The car also establish to Poddomkratta it on props.
5. Remove central back (with the muffler) sections of system of production of the fulfilled gases, also uncover the thermofilter (see the Head of the Power supply system and release)

6. Mark position of the driveshaft of rather connecting back differential, then release four fixing bolts and turn out three of them.

7. Turn out two bolts of fastening of the central bearing to the car bottom.

8. Release the driveshaft from transmission, - try not to damage epiploons and the rubbing surface of the sliding collar.

 Prepare drain capacity for collecting oil which will flow out at removal of the driveshaft; right after extraction of a shaft muffle an opening in the case of lengthening of transmission by a special cover, or a polyethylene film.



 The driveshaft is not subject to dismantling.

1. The key control geometrical parameters of the driveshaft are presented on an illustration.
2. Examine a surface of pipes of the driveshaft on existence of jags or cracks.
3. Estimate degree of wear of shlitsevy joints.
4. Check smoothness and noiselessness of operation of hinges.
5. Estimate the side play size, smoothness of the course and noiselessness of rotation of the central bearing.
6. Check a condition of epiploons.
7. By means of the dial measuring instrument determine the size of a beating of forward and back sections of a shaft in the central part of pipes. If the result of measurement exceeds 0.6 mm, replace a defective component.



1. Installation is made as it should be, the return to an order of dismantle of components. Track that all fixture was tightened with the demanded effort.
2. Manually turning a shaft, check it for existence of an excessive side play of gearing of shlitsevy connections, also estimate sizes of side plays in crosspieces and bearings of cardan hinges.
3. Rotating a hand back wheels, determine the size of an axial beating of the driveshaft.

 Perform measurements in the center of forward and back pipes of the driveshaft.

4. Pull a shaft in different directions around installation of the central bearing for the purpose of definition of a side play of the last.
