10.1.3. Forward springs

The prevention

Depending on car equipment in a suspension bracket various springs, each time with the rubber support are put. For a designation of springs on the bottom coil the red or dark blue stroke is put, and also detail number is beaten out. At replacement put springs only with an identical designation.


1. Designate a paint position of forward wheels in relation to a nave. Thanks to it the balanced wheel after removal comes back in the same position. Release bolts of wheels before car lifting. Raise the car in front and remove forward wheels.
2. Unscrew the shock-absorber from above for what substitute under the bottom lever a garage jack and, having enclosed a wooden lining, raise the lever.
3. Remove the bottom protection of a motor compartment.
4. The suspension bracket spring is in the compressed condition. It needs to be compressed even more to release spring plates. Make it, using the corresponding adaptation.
5. Compress a spring a usual stripper. In firm workshops for this purpose use the special adaptation including the device for a tension (01а) (000 589 46 31 00), of plate (01b), (01c) (000 589 79 63 00). Thus натяжитель springs should cover 8 coils. Compress a spring until it cannot be taken out.

The prevention

Put натяжитель in spring coils so that they have been reliably captured, and натяжитель has not slid off. Compress a spring at least in three points in regular intervals located on a circle. The spring is strongly compressed, therefore apply only the stable tool. To avoid accident, do not connect coils of a spring a wire.

6. If the new spring is put, removed slowly release.


1. Before installation investigate a rubber support on porosity or damages, if necessary – replace. Clear spring installation sites on the lever.
2. Establish натяжитель springs and slowly compress it.
3. Rotating to the right, put on a rubber support a spring. For simplification of installation it is possible to grease a support with liquid soap or glycerine.
4. Put a spring so that the end of the bottom coil sat on an emphasis of a plate of a spring in the lever.
5. Slightly raise the cross-section lever by means of a garage jack, insert the top end of the shock-absorber. In front of a motor compartment put a shock-absorber washer, screw up a nut on a rod with the moment 15 Н.м. Insure its counternut with the moment 30 Н.м.
The prevention

At lever lifting watch to lifting the car.

6. Slowly unclench a spring, thus watch correct landing of a rubber support in the bearing basis of a body and from below on the lever.
7. Remove a garage jack.
8. Put a covering of a motor compartment.
9. Put on wheels, observing marks of their former position earlier put by a paint. Screw wheels. Lower the car on wheels and in a crosswise order tighten bolts of wheels with the moment 110 Н.м.
10. Check up in a workshop car level on the forward bridge.
11. Establish headlights.
