8.3.1. Replacement of covers of a semi-axis and check CV JOINT



If it is necessary for you to touch the hinge (usually because of a rupture of a cover), learn the prices and availability of spare details before the work beginning. Probably, it will be more reasonable simply to replace a semi-axis.


1. Remove a semi-axis (see subsection 8.3).
2. Clamp a semi-axis in a vice, having put laying between sponges of a vice not to damage it. Check, whether is not present at the hinge of an excessive free wheeling in the radial direction that would testify to wear of elements of the hinge. If the cover of the hinge is torn, disassemble the hinge, clear all its elements and examine on existence of the damages which have appeared because of work for lack of greasing or because of hit of extraneous subjects or dirt.
3. By means of a small screw-driver lift uvulas on collars of a cover and remove them.
4. By means of a screw-driver accurately pick up edge of an external cover and remove it from the hinge. If the cover old or is worn-out, it can be cut. Remove an internal cover from a hinge casing, and then remove a casing with трипода. Note mutual situation трипода and a casing then to establish them in initial situation.
5. Note the provision of installation трипода in relation to a semi-axis in order that трипод it was possible to establish correctly after removal.
6. Remove a cutting lock ring by means of special flat-nose pliers.
7. By means of a hammer and copper a small beard remove трипод from a semi-axis.
8. If you did not cut off them, remove both covers. At work on the right semi-axis, it is necessary to cut off a collar of a damper of dynamic vibration and to shift a damper aside, previously having noted the provision of its installation.


Carefully clear all elements, including the external CV JOINT, by means of solvent so that to remove from hinge elements all old greasing. Examine a surface of bearings трипода the internal hinge and an internal surface of its casing on existence of cracks, corrosion, scratches or other signs of wear. It is very difficult to check a condition of a surface of internal and external paths of a kacheniye of the external hinge, but it is possible to check a condition of balls. If they as it should be, means, obviously, surfaces of paths of a kacheniye too. If the internal CV JOINT is worn-out, it is possible to get the new internal CV JOINT and to establish it on an old semi-axis; if the external CV JOINT is worn-out, it is necessary to replace and it and a semi-axis (they are on sale only assembled).


1. Wind shlitsa on the end of a semi-axis with an isolating tape for protection of covers (a photo at the left). Put on collars and covers a semi-axis, then establish on a semi-axis трипод to that the party on which shlitsa do not reach edge трипода (a photo on the right).


At work on the right semi-axis do not forget to establish a damper of dynamic vibration and a new collar before installation of an internal cover.

2. Put greasing on трипод and on an internal surface of a casing (a photo at the left). Insert трипод into a casing and fill the remained space around трипода with greasing (a photo on the right).
3. Establish a cover into place, having checked, that both edges of a cover got to the flutes. Adjust length of a semi-axis to the value specified in subsection 8.1.
4. Level pressure under a cover having inserted a small screw-driver between a cover and an external path of a kacheniye.
5. For installation of new collars bend the collar end (a photo at the left), and then bend uvulas over a strip for its fixing (a photo on the right).
