Removal and installation of a steering column

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Lower a steering wheel in extreme bottom situation and nominate him against the stop. Fix a column in this situation, having taken out a key from the ignition lock.
  2. Remove a steering wheel (see. Removal and installation of a steering wheel).
  1. Turn out the fixing screw and remove the handle from the lever of adjustment of provision of a column.
  1. Remove decorative covers, turn out fixing screws and remove the top section of a casing of a steering column.
  1. Turn out three fixing screws (two above and one below) and remove the bottom section of a casing of a column.

    A — Screws of fastening of casings of a steering column (Astra model)
    B — Screws of fastening of a casing of a steering column (Zafira model)

A.

B.
  1. Having hooked a screw-driver, disunite the socket of electroconducting of the contact block of a safety cushion.
  2. Release clamps and remove the contact block from a steering column.

On models of the last years of release contact blocks are equipped with the locking device holding it in the central situation, - do not release this device on the removed contact block.

  1. Remove from a steering column podrulevy switches (see. Head Onboard electric equipment).
  2. Take the ignition key and remove ring facing immobilizatora/a transponder.
  1. Insert the ignition key and turn it in situation ASS, insert a thin screw-driver into an opening of the lock of ignition and wring out it a locking pin then accurately liberate the lock cylinder from the case.
  1. At the corresponding complete set remove from a steering column the block immobilizatora/the block of a transponder, - if the block is not equipped with latches, disconnect electroconducting, then separate the block from the case of the lock of ignition and remove the cylinder of the lock of ignition (see. Head Onboard electric equipment); on blocks with latches remove the cylinder of the lock of ignition (see. Head Onboard electric equipment), then separate the block from the lock case. In case of need remove a protective cap and disconnect electroconducting.
  1. Accurately remove column and spring covers.
  1. Liberate a conducting plait from a steering column, then remove the bottom sections of furnish of the dashboard and a sleeve of supply of air in a driver's foot well.
  2. Mark the provision of the top joint of an intermediate shaft of rather steering column, then turn out and remove a coupling bolt of a collar. Remove a shaft with шлицов, - pay attention that the shaft has a telescopic design.
  3. On the models equipped with electronic system of stabilization (ESP), disconnect electroconducting from the sensor of an angle of rotation of a steering wheel, a screw-driver wring out a clamp and remove the sensor from a transitional nozzle. Slightly shift the sensor down.
  1. Prop up a steering column, release the bottom collar of a column and the top fixing bolts. In case of need release the bottom fastening, - try not to bend capture. On models with ESP slightly pull a column up and disconnect the sensor established in its lower part. Try to remember the landing provision of various washers and the laying established between the bottom collar and the top arm of fastening of a column.
  1. Remove a column from a basic arm on a partition of an impellent compartment and take it from car salon.

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Before installation of a steering column acquire the bottom fixing collar and tighten on some turns its coupling bolt, - do not establish while the top fixing bolt. Accurately pass a steering column in the bottom collar, - try not to damage conducting. On models with ESP establish the sensor of an angle of rotation on the lower part of a steering column, - track reliability of a zashchelkivaniye of a clamp.
  2. On models since 2000 вып. establish the top bolts of fastening and tighten them with demanded effort.
  3. On models for 1999 вып., where washers were established, insert them between the bottom basic arm and a cross-piece, insert the bottom collar and the top fixing bolts and tighten them with demanded effort.
  4. On models for 1999 вып., where washers were not established, prepare 4 washers in thickness on 0.1 mm and establish them together as one 4-millimetric between the bottom basic arm and a cross-piece, then tighten with demanded effort a coupling bolt of a collar. Grasp the lower part of an internal column and try вытолкнуть it up (in the direction to a steering wheel), - the directing sleeve of gray color on the bottom fixing knot should not move, otherwise remove one of washers and repeat check. Having achieved satisfactory result, insert the bottom fixing bolts and tighten them with demanded effort. In case of need make sure that the stopper is established before the bottom sleeve.
  5. On models with ESP attach electroconducting to the sensor of an angle of rotation of a steering wheel.
  6. Establish an intermediate shaft on a shlitsa in the bottom of a column, - track correctness of combination of the landing labels put in the course of dismantle (at the wrong joint to insert a bolt into a collar it will not be possible). Insert a coupling bolt of a collar and reliably it tighten.
  7. Establish an air line and the bottom sections of furnish. Fix an electroconducting plait in intermediate clamps in a column.
  8. Operating as it should be the return to an order of dismantle of components, establish on a steering column the block of an immobilizatora/transponder, - on models with the block without latches, establish the cylinder of the lock of ignition (see. Head Onboard electric equipment), then attach the block to the lock case; on models with the block equipped with latches establish it on the lock case, then establish the cylinder (see. Head Onboard electric equipment). In case of need connect electroconducting, then establish a protective cap.
  9. Establish a column and spring cover.
  10. Insert the ignition key into the lock, turn it in situation ASS, plant the ignition switch on the lock case, - track reliability of a zashchelkivaniye of a clamp.
  11. Take the ignition key and establish ring facing of an immobilizatora/transponder.
  12. Establish on a column podrulevy switches (see. Head Onboard electric equipment).
  13. Establish on a steering column the contact block of a safety cushion, - track correctness of hit of directing pins in reception openings, reliably latch clamps.
