Thus keep a wrench gear рейку for лыски from проворачивания.
7 – a collar with rubber an insert
8 – the mechanism of the hydraulic booster of a wheel. For removal it is preliminary necessary to lower a unit beam (work HUNDRED).

Convergence adjustment is made by rotation of steering draughts necessarily on both parties of the car. Tips of steering draughts should not have люфтов. Dustproof caps should not have damages, otherwise they should be urgently replaced. Tips of steering draughts on the right and at the left have a various bend.

6. Insert steering draught into the pendular lever on the case of the bearing of a wheel and tighten a new self-stopped nut the moment 45 Н•м.
7. Fix a counternut of a tip of steering draught the moment 50 Н•м.
8. Establish into place a forward wheel so that the marks put at removal have coincided. Preliminary grease with a thin layer подшипниковой greasings aligning belt of a disk of a wheel on a nave.
