Check of a condition and replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units

THROUGH EACH 30 000 KM (18 000 MILES) RUN

Exact adjustment of a tension drive can achieve a belt only with application of special tool Citroyon SEEM 4122. The description of a way of approximate adjustment (at the first possibility the car should be driven away on a car repair shop where correctness of installation can be checked up with application of the special equipment) is more low resulted.

On all models one belt of a drive of auxiliary units is provided established. On the models which have been not equipped with the conditioner of air, the belt is used for a drive of the steering pump and the generator. Adjustment of a tension of a belt here is made manually. On models with К/В the same belt the compressor of the conditioner which is established from above on the generator is put in action also. In this case belt assemblage is equipped roller automatic натяжителем.

Check

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Prop up противооткатными boots back wheels, поддомкратьте redock of the car and establish it on props. Remove the right forward wheel.

2. In a wheel arch remove with подзора a plastic cover, having provided with that access to the right wall of the power unit.


3. Turning the engine for a bolt of a pulley of a cranked shaft by means of a face key with a suitable drive, attentively examine auxiliary приводной a belt on all its length. Pay attention to defects of type of cracks, stratifications and attritions. Presence заполированных to shine of sites is inadmissible also. The defective or worn out belt is subject to replacement.
4. If the belt condition is found satisfactory, make adjustment of effort of its tension (except equipped К/В models where it is provided automatic натяжитель).

Removal, installation and tension adjustment (models without air conditioner)

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If yet have not done it, execute the procedures 2—3 described in "Check".
2. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.

3. Loosen the fixing and adjusting bolts of an arm of a tension roller (one of bolts is located in the central part of the roller, the second symbol - below on an arm).


4. Against the stop tighten an adjusting bolt and remove a belt from pulleys.

5. Check up freedom of rotation of a tension roller.

Installation

In case of need replacement performance, track, that the new belt without fail corresponded on a standard size failed. Throw with a new belt pulleys and choose its weak point by a tightening of an adjusting bolt. Now it is possible to start tension adjustment (see further).

Tension adjustment

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If yet have not done it, execute the procedures 2—3 described in "Check".
2. Observance of correctness of adjustment of effort of a tension drive a belt is pledge of duration of term of its service. The too poorly tense belt usually starts to whistle. Remember also that excessively strong натягивание a belt leads to overloads and premature deterioration of bearings of the generator.
3. The belt should be tense so that at firm нажимании on it a thumb on a site in the middle between the most remote from each other pulleys the deflection size made about 5 mm (the remark in the section beginning see).
4. Updating of a tension of a belt is made by rotation of an adjusting bolt. Having achieved satisfactory result, some times turn a cranked shaft, then repeat check. Strongly tighten fixing/adjusting bolts.
5. Connect a negative wire to the battery.
6. Establish into place a plastic cover подзора a wing and the right forward wheel, then lower the car on the earth and tighten wheel bolts.

Removal and installation (the models equipped with the conditioner of air)

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If yet have not done it, execute "Check" procedures.
2. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.
3. Pass прутковый a key of square section in a special aperture in the bottom part of an arm натяжителя and start to rotate натяжитель counter-clockwise, weakening thereby a belt. For fixing натяжителя in the released position pass прутковый a key on 4 mm in a special aperture and tighten a pin.
4. Turn out fixing bolts and remove a roller натяжителя, then throw off a belt from pulleys.
5. Check up freedom of rotation of a roller натяжителя.

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Make sure that the replaceable belt corresponds failed on the standard size. Throw with a new belt pulleys, having tracked correctness of hit of edges in streams.
2. Establish a roller натяжителя and tighten fixing bolts.
3. With the help пруткового a key of square section fix натяжитель, usual прутковым a key (on 4 mm) release a pin and slowly release assemblage, having allowed it to make a belt tension. Still make sure of correctness of hit of edges of a belt in streams of pulleys.
4. Connect a negative wire to the battery.
