Remove the forelock and turn off a nut of fastening of a shaft of the drive of a wheel to a wheel nave.
Merge oil from the transmission.

Fig. 3.116. Wheel drive shaft detachment


By means of the plastic hammer disconnect a wheel drive shaft from a nave of a wheel (fig. 3.116).
Pull a wheel nave outside from the car and separate from it a wheel drive shaft.

Fig. 3.117. Detachment of a shaft of the drive of a wheel from the transmission


Insert mount between a case of the transmission and the case of the CV JOINT of a shaft of the drive of a wheel, and then disconnect a shaft of the drive of a wheel from the transmission (fig. 3.117).

ATTENTION
Be careful at a wheel drive shaft detachment by means of mount, do not damage a case of the transmission and the CV JOINT of a shaft.
In order to avoid damage of an epiploon do not insert mount too deeply (at most 7 mm).
Do not extend a wheel drive shaft with considerable effort as similar operation will lead to damage of internal details of the Birfilda BJ or TJ Tripod CV JOINT of a shaft of the drive of a wheel (a rupture of a cover or damage of the bearing).

ATTENTION
By means of a special cap close an opening in the transmission for prevention of hit in dirt and foreign particles.
Reliably hold a wheel drive shaft.
Always replace a lock ring (retainer ring) after a detachment of a shaft of the drive of a wheel from the transmission.

Check

Fig. 3.118. Check of a power shaft



Check a protective cover of the CV JOINT of a shaft of the drive of a wheel for absence of damage and deteriorations in technical condition.
Check spherical hinges for lack of the increased wear and mobility.
Check a shlitsevy part of a shaft of the drive of a wheel (and naves) for lack of the increased wear or damages.
Check a dynamic damper for absence of damage or cracks.

Installation
Oil gearbox vents of a shaft of the drive of a wheel and the surface of contact of the case of differential (in the transmission).
Before installation of a shaft of the drive of a wheel arrange a lock ring so that its lock was directed down.
After installation of a shaft of the drive of a wheel check that the shaft is reliably recorded and it cannot be removed by hand.

Fig. 3.119. Installation of a washer and nut of fastening of a shaft of the drive


Establish a washer by the convex party outside, then establish a nut of fastening of a shaft of the drive of a wheel and the forelock (fig. 3.119).
Always replace самоконтрящуюся a nut of fastening of a shaft of the drive of a wheel and the forelock new after each detachment of a shaft from a nave.
