Greasing replacement in hinges

1. To remove полуось with two hinges.
2. After a designation of position of a semiaxis concerning an internal part of the hinge and a metal cover concerning an external part of the hinge to take the hinge from a protective casing and to disconnect it from a semiaxis.
3. To clear the hinge and to check up degree of deterioration of balls and directing. To put greasing in the hinge (fig. Privodnoj the hinge see): in space () 10–15 г and in space () 65–70 г in case of a two-layer protective casing and nearby 85 г – in case of a three-layer protective casing.
4. To establish the hinge on полуось and to fix a protective casing. In case of need it is necessary to put on a new protective casing, paying attention to that greasing has not got inside it.
5. To establish a metal casing according to earlier executed designations and to provide its tightness in hinges.
6. To establish полуось.

Consolidation of hinges

In case of greasing performance on a surface of the hinge from under a metal casing it is necessary to arrive as follows.

1. To remove полуось together with two hinges, preliminary having designated its position concerning elements to which it has been connected.
2. To take the hinge from a metal casing and to disconnect it from a semiaxis.
3. After careful clearing of a surface of the hinge and a metal casing to put on surfaces A (fig. the Surface for drawing герметизирующей pastes see) герметизирующую paste.

The prevention

To apply exclusively not hardening pastes and to put them so that it was possible to tighten bolts in regular intervals.

4. To connect the hinge to a semiaxis and to establish a protective casing.


The kardannyj shaft of the car is connected to secondary shaft of a transmission the elastic hinge. The flange on secondary to a transmission shaft is a component of this hinge.

Removal and installation of the elastic hinge

1. Extraction of the elastic hinge demands blocking of bolts with heads of type Torx.
2. Before installation of the elastic hinge it is necessary to check up, whether bolts with heads of type Torx the moment of 80 Nanometers are tightened.

The prevention

If these bolts are turned, it is necessary to cover their carving with glue Loctite 270.

3. To put greasing on the washers located on both parties of a flange, so that not to allow to them to be turned in the course of a tightening new (at each installation of the hinge) nuts by the moment of 75 Nanometers.
4. To check up a condition rubber демпферов In the elastic hinge (fig. the Elastic hinge see).
5. If rubber демпферы are erose or have cracks it is necessary to replace propeller a shaft together with the hinge. It is impossible to replace only the hinge as the hinge and a shaft are balanced together.

The prevention

Small cracks on a forward surface of the hinge yet do not mean compulsion of its replacement.
