Replacement of cardan hinges

Performance of replacement of cardan hinges will require a press or a big vice.


1. Remove the driveshaft (see the Section Removal and installation of the driveshaft).
2. Transfer the driveshaft to the workbench equipped with a vice.
3a. Mark the provision of a collar concerning a shaft (address an accompanying illustration).
3b. Ratem remove lock rings (address an accompanying illustration).

On the models considered in the present manual bearings of crosspieces of cardan hinges can be equipped with lock rings of both an external, and internal design. External rings are removed by means of nippers, extraction from the landing flutes of internal lock rings will require a drift and the hammer.

4. Press a piece of a pipe or a face head of the corresponding diameter to a cup of one of bearings (the mandrel has to have the internal diameter, identical with a cup). Establish a mandrel of slightly smaller diameter since the opposite end of a cup and, having clamped assembly in a vice, squeeze out a cup outside (in a bigger mandrel) approximately on 25 mm.

Try not to force out a cup completely from the landing nest in a collar cheek.

5. Final extraction of a cup is made by means of nippers.
6. Working in a similar manner, squeeze out a cup of the opposite bearing.
7. Take hinged assembly from a collar and carefully wipe it. Make sure of lack of zadir and scratches in landing nests in cheeks of homutny assembly.
8. For deduction of rollers fill cups of the new bearing dense lubricant.

The instruction for greasing of the bearing usually invests in packing of standard repair set and have to be observed strictly.

9. Enclose hinged assembly in a collar and partially fill a cup of one of bearings in a landing nest. If the hinge is equipped with the lubricant union, track that it was developed in the same party, as the union of the hinge located since the opposite end of a shaft.
10. Enter a hinge body into a bearing cup, then partially fill a collar the second cup. Level the hinge between cups, then finally press the last in a collar, try not to damage boots.
11. Establish lock rings, in case of need sharply knock on a collar for the purpose of shrinkage of rings in flutes. If the ring does not sit down even after a collar obstukivaniye, therefore, there was a jamming of one of needle bearings of a crosspiece, disassemble the hinge and repeat the procedure.
12. Check an axial side play in the hinge (address an accompanying illustration) – if it is more than 0.05 mm, pick up suitable lock rings. Rings are established by pairs of identical thickness on one axis that there were no vibrations.
13. Install the driveshaft on the car (see the Section Removal and installation of the driveshaft).
14. If hinges are equipped with lubricant unions, fill them lubricant (see the Head Nastroyki and routine maintenance of the car).
15. Remove props and lower the car on the earth.
