Using a screw-driver edge as the lever, remove the rubber caps located in the top part of a forward suspension bracket.
Through the opened openings unscrew nuts of the top fastening of a damping rack.
Unscrew a bolt of fastening of spherical hinges of the top levers of a forward suspension bracket to a rotary fist.

Fig. 12-1. Use of a stripper for extraction of the spherical hinge of the lower holding lever from a rotary fist



Unscrew a nut of fastening of the spherical hinge of the lower holding lever to a rotary fist. Using a stripper, take the spherical hinge from a rotary fist (fig. 12-1).

Fig. 12-2. Arrangement of the ABS (2) sensor, clips of fastening of wires (1) of ABS sensors and wear of brake shoes, bolt of the lower fastening of a damping rack (3)



Take the ABS sensor from a rotary fist and disconnect from clips of a wire of the sensor (fig. 12-2).
Disconnect from clips of a wire of the sensor of wear of brake shoes.
Unscrew a bolt of the lower fastening of a damping rack, at the same time be careful – do not damage a protective cover of the hinge of equal angular speeds of a shaft of the drive.

Fig. 12-4. Elements of the top fastening of a rotary fist: 1 – nut and bolt of fastening of spherical hinges of the top levers of a forward suspension bracket; 2 – spherical hinges of the top levers of a forward suspension bracket; 3 – bolt of fastening of a tip of steering draft; 4 – a bolt with a tetrahedral head



Unscrew a nut and take a bolt of fastening of spherical hinges of the top levers of a forward suspension bracket to a rotary fist (fig. 12-4) and remove spherical hinges from a rotary fist. Do not expand grooves in a rotary fist at extraction of the top cross levers.
Do not unscrew a bolt of fastening of a tip of steering draft and a bolt with a tetrahedral head as it will break the angles of installation of forward wheels.
Reject the top part of a rotary fist aside.
Being careful, take a damping rack from under a forward wing. At the same time do not damage a protective cover of the hinge of equal angular speeds of a shaft of the drive.

Installation
At installation it is necessary to use new bolts, nuts, washers, the tightening plug (before its installation apply G 000 650 lubricant in an opening of a rotary fist), a clip.
Installation is carried out to the sequences, the return to removal, taking into account the following.
Establish a damping rack so that the opening in a nest of a spring settled down from a forward longitudinal element.
Install a fork of the lower fastening of a damping rack on the operating lever and fix by a bolt and a nut.
Install the top cross levers against the stop in a rotary fist and fix them by a bolt and a nut, having tightened the moment 40 N · m (see fig. 12-4).
Fix an ABS sensor wire on a brake support arm.
Fix the top part of a damping rack by nuts, having tightened their moment 20 N · m.
Establish rubber caps.
Apply a thin film of lubricant on a fillet of the nave aligning a wheel disk. Establish a wheel and fix it by bolts. Lower the car and tighten bolts of fastening of a wheel the moment of 120 N · m.
