21.9. Rubber elastic coupling of the driveshaft

Check

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Tighten the hand brake, then lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports.
2. Check a condition of the rubber elastic coupling connecting a forward part of the driveshaft to a target flange of a transmission, on lack of wear, damages, cracks and aging. If necessary replace the rubber elastic coupling.

Replacement


Prevention

At replacement of the rubber elastic coupling of the driveshaft it is necessary to use new nuts of fastening of the coupling.


PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove the driveshaft.

FORWARD COUPLING

Arrangement of a ledge of a quencher of krutilny fluctuations on models where the axis of bolts of fastening is displaced on 40 mm from a driveshaft axis

Combination of an arrow with a ledge on a flange on models where the axis of a bolt is displaced on 45 mm and more, concerning a driveshaft axis

PERFORMANCE ORDER
2. Put combination labels on the coupling and a quencher of krutilny fluctuations of the driveshaft.
3. Unscrew nuts, take bolts and remove the coupling from the driveshaft. Check a condition of a quencher of krutilny fluctuations and, if necessary, replace it.
4. Establish a quencher of krutilny fluctuations on the driveshaft according to the labels put before removal. On models where the axis of bolts of fastening is displaced from a driveshaft axis on 40 mm, a quencher of krutilny fluctuations establish how the Arrangement of a ledge of a quencher of krutilny fluctuations on models where the axis of bolts of fastening is displaced on 40 mm from a driveshaft axis is shown in drawing. On models where the axis under bolts of fastening is displaced from an axis of a cranked shaft on 45 mm and more, establish a quencher of krutilny fluctuations so that the arrow was combined with a ledge on a flange (see fig. Combination of an arrow with a ledge on a flange on models where the axis of a bolt is displaced on 45 mm and more, concerning a driveshaft axis).
5. Establish on the driveshaft the new rubber coupling, thus the party with an inscription should be directed to the driveshaft. Insert bolts of fastening of the coupling, screw on them nuts and tighten them the demanded moment.
6. Establish the driveshaft.

BACK COUPLING

PERFORMANCE ORDER
2. Unscrew nuts, then take bolts and remove the elastic coupling from the driveshaft.
3. Establish on the driveshaft the new elastic coupling, insert bolts of fastening and on them screw new nuts and tighten them the demanded moment.
4. Establish the driveshaft.
