Preparation and precautionary measures

Before starting dismantle of the engine for the purpose of performance of its general or capital repairs, it is necessary to take some preparatory measures.

Existence and the equipment of the working platform is of extremely great importance. The platform has to be rather spacious for placement on it of the car, a strong workbench / the assembly stand, and also necessary materials and the equipment. An optimal variant is the big garage or the covered workshop. As a last resort just flat platform with an asphalt or concrete covering will approach.

It is necessary to take care also of the place equipment for storage of the components removed from the engine, the tool and other materials. Best of all the easy folding rack with rather wide regiments is suitable for this purpose.

Before starting dismantle of the power unit, clean a motor compartment and the external surface of the engine that will help to keep the used tool with purity and an order.

Necessary condition of successful work is also existence of the winch, the And-shaped frame or other suitable lifting equipment. Track that the elevator and a rigging corresponded according to the load-lifting characteristics to the total mass of the power unit (the engine with transmission). Do not forget about need of strict observance of requirements of safety regulations.

If extraction of the engine is made by the amateur mechanic for the first time, it is necessary to get support of the assistant. Useful will be given council of more skilled mechanic in time. In the course of extraction of the unit from the car there is a set of situations when any procedures have to be performed at the same time that often cannot be made by forces of one person.

Try to plan all moments of the forthcoming work in advance. Prepare all necessary tools and the equipment. To number of the special devices significantly facilitating performance of the forthcoming works and considerably increasing the level of their safety, the powerful cart jack, a set of wrenches and replaceable face heads with suitable (it is desirable ratchet) the drive, pair of strong wooden blocks, and also enough rags and solvent for removal of traces of fuel, oil and cooling liquid belong. At absence in private use of the lifting equipment before hiring the winch, try to perform beforehand all necessary preparatory work for the purpose of the maximum reduction of term of rent and consequently, and the material inputs connected with it.

Prepare for refusal of use of the car for the period of carrying out repair work. Performance of a part of the procedures demanding high qualification of personnel and use of the special equipment should be charged to specialists of car service. Remember that automobile repair shops usually have very busy schedule of loading, and therefore it will be reasonable to see to it and agree with personnel about terms of implementation of your order in advance.

On all Skoda Felicia models extraction of assembly of the power unit from a motive compartment is made through the lower aperture, and therefore follows will take care of reliability of fixing of the car in the lifted situation when it under it remains rather free space. Existence on the working platform of a low platform will be an optimum condition.

Work without hurrying, in an organized manner, try not to violate elementary safety regulations!

Suspension bracket of the power unit - general information

The power unit fastens to the bearing car body elements by means of elastic support which absorb vibrations of the working engine and soften breakthroughs of the unit at accelerations and braking. For all units used on the considered cars the 3-dot suspension bracket is provided. The right support of units with the diesel engine and the petrol engine of 1.6 l differs from a support of units with the petrol engine of 1.3 l. the lower support, except vertical loading in addition perceives the jet moments arising at sharp dispersal or braking by the engine.

The right support of engines of 1.3 l consists of an arm (1) which fastens bolts (2) to the amplifier of the left mudguard. The engine fastens to a support a bolt (3) via the elastic plug (4) located in inflow on the case of the water pump. The pump arrangement above the center of gravity of the engine promotes decrease in level of vibrations of the power unit.

Right support of diesel engines and petrol engines of 1.6 l consists of the arm (1) attached to the block of cylinders and connecting through an elastic pillow (2) to an arm (3), fixed on a body. The central bolt (4) provides necessary preliminary compression of an elastic pillow through a basic washer at a vvorachivaniye in an arm (1).

The left support of the power unit of all engines is executed with a back cover of RKPP at the same time. The opening into which the elastic plug (2) is inserted is provided in a body of a support of a cover. The plug by means of a bolt (6) and corners (8) and (9) connects to an arm (10), fixed on a body by bolts (11) and (15).

The lower support consists of the jet lever (3), an arm (1) and plugs (2) and (4). Necessary preliminary compression of the plug (2) is provided by tightening of a bolt (5). Nuts (7) and (9) are самоконтрящимися.
