4.2.4. Removal, check and installation of the forward stabilizer of cross stability

Fig. 4.36. Forward stabilizer of cross stability



Removal
Remove a forward wheel.

Fig. 4.37. Removal of a rack of the stabilizer


Remove stabilizer racks assembled (fig. 4.37).

Fig. 4.38. Arm of fastening of the stabilizer


Remove arms of fastening of the stabilizer and plug of the stabilizer (fig. 4.38).
Remove the stabilizer of cross stability.
Check
Check the stabilizer of cross stability for absence of damage or deformations.
Check all bolts for lack of deformation and damages.
Check protective covers of spherical hinges of racks of the stabilizer for lack of cracks and damages.

Fig. 4.39. Check of the moment of rotation of a finger of the spherical hinge of a rack of the stabilizer


Check the moment of rotation of a finger of the spherical hinge of a rack of the stabilizer (fig. 4.39).
In the presence of cracks or ruptures of a protective cover of the spherical hinge replace it and add lubricant to the hinge.
Several times shake a finger of the spherical hinge of a rack of the stabilizer.
Screw самоконтрящуюся a nut on a finger of the spherical hinge and then measure the moment of rotation of a finger.
Nominal rate: 1,7–3,2 N · m.
If the moment of rotation exceeds the top limit of nominal rate, replace a stabilizer rack.
If the moment of rotation is less than lower limit of nominal rate, then the spherical hinge is considered suitable for further operation while there is no jamming and an excessive gap in the spherical hinge.

Installation
Install plugs on the stabilizer of cross stability.

Fig. 4.40. Distance between edge of the plug and edge the painted white paint of an adjusting tag



NOTE
The distance between edge of the plug and edge the painted white paint of an adjusting tag on the stabilizer from an external part of the car has to make 10 mm (fig. 4.40).


Fig. 4.41. Installation of an arm of fastening of the stabilizer


Install an arm of fastening of the stabilizer on the plug (fig. 4.41).
Completely combine the plug with the adjusting tag on the stabilizer painted by white paint. Temporarily tighten bolts of an arm of fastening of the stabilizer, then establish a fastening arm from the opposite side of the stabilizer.
