Capital repairs of racks of a forward suspension bracket

Components of a rack of a forward suspension bracket

1 — the Shock-absorber
2 — the Screw spring
3 — the Protective cover
4 — the compression course Buffer
5 — the Top plate of a spring

6 — the Bearing
7 — the Rubber pillow
8 — the Top support of a rack
9 — the Rubber ring
10 — M12 Nut


The special tool for tightening of screw springs of a suspension bracket is required. Authors of the present manual recommend to use the tool of adjustable type - ask in shops of automobile accessories. Any attempts of dismantling of racks without use of the special tool are fraught with receiving serious injuries.

At assembly the new nut of a fixing plate will be required.

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Remove a rack from the car, clear it of dirt, then clamp vertically in a vice with soft sponges. By means of special adaptation squeeze a screw spring, having completely unloaded plates. Track correctness of fixing of the tool on spring rounds (strictly adhere to instructions of manufacturers).

2. A wrench block a rod of the piston of rack-mount assembly from a provorachivaniye and give a nut of fastening of the top plate.

3. Remembering the adjusting provision of components, give a nut...

also remove a dish-shaped washer from a rack...

and fixing plate...

At assembly the nut is subject to replacement without fail.

4. Remove the rubber plug...

... holder of the bearing...

... bearing...

... remote plug and top plate of a spring...

Then remove a screw spring...

5. Remove a rubber protective cover and the buffer of the course of compression from piston assembly of the shock-absorber.

6. Attentively examine the shock-absorber on existence of traces of leak of hydraulic liquid. Check the piston for existence of cavities, and the shock-absorber case on existence of mechanical damages. Holding the shock-absorber vertically, check serviceability of its functioning at first on all length of its course, then on short compression with the course from 50 to 100 mm. In both cases resistance to compression has to be uniform and continuous. Otherwise the shock-absorber is faulty and is subject to replacement.
7. Check all components for existence of signs of wear, deformations and mechanical damages, paying special attention to a condition of the bearing and remote plug. Replace defective parts.
8. Install the buffer of the course of compression and a rubber protective cover on the shock-absorber. Track correctness of landing of bottom edge of a cover on the shock-absorber case.
9. Establish into place a screw spring. Track correctness of landing of its lower end face concerning a plate emphasis.

10. Completely stretch the shock-absorber, then install on it the top plate, again correctly having developed it an emphasis concerning a spring end face.

11. Install the remote plug, the bearing, the holder of the bearing and the rubber plug, afterwards establish the top fixing plate.
12. Install a dish-shaped washer on the piston, then screw a new nut. Holding the piston from a provorachivaniye, tighten a nut of a fixing plate with the required effort.
13. Having made sure of correctness of landing of a spring on an emphasis of plates, release the squeezing tool and remove it from a rack.
