Removal and installation of covers of heads of cylinders



1. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.

If the stereosystem established on the car is equipped with a security code before disconnecting the battery make sure that you have the correct combination for input of the audio system in action!

2. Turn off four bolts of fastening of coils of ignition to a valvate cover put marking and remove coils.
3. From the driver's party:
  1. Can interfere with removal of a cover the probe of measurement of level of motive oil – take out it and put aside.
  2. Move fuel highways and hoses of ventilation of a coal adsorber that did not disturb. The need for their detachment should not arise.
  3. Disconnect a hose of ventilation of a case.

4. From the passenger party (on the right):

  1. Disconnect the G-shaped hose of ventilation of a case.
  2. Unfasten the vacuum hose of GUR conducting to the inlet pipeline and take him aside.
5. Give nine bolts of fastening of a cover of a head of cylinders and accurately remove it. Be accurate: an aluminum cover it is easy on to harm. If the cover "stuck" and does not give in to removal, tap it on perimeter the hammer through wooden whetstone, in case of need use the pallet or a knife with a thin edge for cutting of a layer of the dried-up sealant.

In order to avoid development of leaks, do not hook a cover the lever under the interfaced surface at all!



1. The interfaced surfaces of heads of cylinders and their covers have to be absolutely pure and dry. By means of a scraper remove all traces of old sealant and fragments of the destroyed laying, then wipe surfaces with the rags moistened in acetone. Presence on the interfaced surfaces of traces of oil can lead to development of leaks.
2. Fill segment rubber traffic jams in the landing grooves, having made sure of their suitability. Grease them with FIPG sealant (Toyota No. 08826-00080), fill with the same sealant two points in a head of cylinders behind GRM drive belt covers at once (address an accompanying illustration). Note the provision of these points before cleaning to apply new sealant there.

3. Densely put sealing laying in a reception flute and press a cover to a head of cylinders. Establish sealing washers, screw fixture.
4. In three-four stages tighten fixture with the required effort (6 Nanometers).
5. Installation of the remained components is made as it should be, the return to an order of their dismantle.
