PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Disconnect a wire from the - plug of the rechargeable battery. On a part of cars the holder of the rechargeable battery (the bigger size) closes a receiver cover. In this case it is necessary to remove the rechargeable battery and its holder (see subsection 10.2).
2. Establish a steering wheel in the situation corresponding rectilinear the movements of the car. It is recommended to record a steering wheel, for example, an adhesive tape 2 (see fig. in the item 1 of subsection 8.4.2).

Prevention

During repair it is forbidden to turn a steering wheel as the mechanism of a safety cushion can fail.


3. Turn off two plastic nuts 1 (see rice. Fastening of a casing of the driveshaft of a steering column) fastenings of a casing of the driveshaft of a steering column also remove a casing 2.
4. Turn off a coupling bolt 4 (see rice. Fastening of a shaft of a steering column to a shaft of a driving gear wheel of the steering mechanism) forks of the cardan hinge.
5. Remove a fork 2 cardan hinges from a shaft of 1 driving gear wheel of the steering mechanism up.
6. If necessary remove the air filter (see subsection 4.1).
7. 7. Take out a wire 2 (see rice. Elements of the hydraulic amplifier of steering) the sensor of the amplifier of steering from three holders 4.
8. Remove an antisplash guard and forward wheels.
9. On models with the reception pipe of the muffler passing under a beam of a forward suspension bracket remove a reception pipe with converter.
10. Disconnect a back support 20 (see rice. Fastening of the steering mechanism on the car (with the amplifier)) from the transmission, having turned off two bolts of the 19th fastening.
11. Turn off on one nut 1 (see rice. Fastening of a rack to a bar of the stabilizer of cross stability) fastenings also disconnect racks 3 from a bar 2 stabilizers on both sides of a suspension bracket.
12. Disconnect tips of both steering drafts from rotary levers (see subsection 8.5.1).
13. Turn off a cover 9 (see rice. Elements of the hydraulic amplifier of steering) a receiver and through a bulk mouth remove by means of a rubber pear working liquid from a receiver.
14. Establish under the steering mechanism capacity for collecting liquid which will follow from it at removal.
15. Establish a reliable support under a beam of a forward suspension bracket.
16. Turn off bolts 18 (see rice. Fastening of the steering mechanism on the car (with the amplifier)) fastenings of the steering mechanism to a beam of 21 forward suspension brackets.
17. Lower a beam of a forward suspension bracket (see subsection 7.2.5) approximately on 40 mm, without allowing damage of a wire of the sensor and highways of the amplifier of steering.
18. Turn off a hollow bolt of the 14th fastening and disconnect from a case of the steering mechanism at first the pressure head highway 16, then the returnable highway 12, having turned off a nut of its fastening. Muffle openings of highways and in a case of the steering mechanism.
19. Turn off two bolts of the 7th fastening with internal hexagons and disconnect the sensor 6 of the amplifier of management from the steering mechanism.
20. Carefully lower a beam of 21 forward suspension brackets.
21. Remove the steering mechanism, having removed it towards a back part of the car.
