13.5. Repair of a forward rack

Details of a rack of a forward suspension bracket
1 – top support;
2 – the bearing (models since 1995);
3 – a spring nest (models since 1995);
4 – protective cover;
5 – cylindrical spring;
6 – buffer;
7 – lower laying;
8 – shock-absorber

1. Remove a forward rack from the car and fix in a vice with soft sponges.
2. Using special adaptation, squeeze a spring so that it departed from the top part. When using special device for compression of springs you watch that rounds of a spring were reliably taken, and you make compression of a spring from the opposite sides. The spring has very big effort of compression therefore use only very reliable tool. Do not connect a spring by a wire at all.

3. Unscrew the central nut of fastening of a rod of the shock-absorber.
4. Remove the top support of a rack and a nest of a spring.
5. Remove a spring from a forward rack.
6. Remove the buffer from a shock-absorber rod.
7. Check all elements of a forward rack for wear, a povrezhda a niya or deformation. Check smoothness of the course of a rod of the shock-absorber. Check the shock-absorber for tightness, and also its rod on pointed corrosion on all length.
8. Nominate a shock-absorber rod to all length and install on it the rubber buffer.
9. Establish a cylindrical spring so that its lower end correctly settled down in the lower nest of a spring.
10. Establish a protective cover and top гнедо springs so that it accurately was established on shock-absorber rod lyska.
11. On models from 1992 to 1994 turn the top support of a forward rack so that the lower bolt of the top support was established from the lower end of a spring. On models since 1995 turn the top support of a forward rack so that the arrow on a support was directed to a rotary fist.
12. Establish the top support on a rod of the shock-absorber and fix by a nut, having tightened it the required moment.
13. Install a forward rack on the car.
