  3. Turn out bolts of fastening of an arm of a back support of a suspension bracket of the power unit to a stretcher.
  4. At the corresponding complete set turn out fastening bolts to a stretcher of a basic arm of hoses of a high pressure.
  5. Get under a case of the steering mechanism suitable drain capacity.
  1. Give shtutserny nuts and disconnect from a case of the steering mechanism hydraulic tubes.
  1. Disconnect electroconducting from the steering pump, liberate a plait from intermediate clamps on a stretcher, - try to remember the correct route of laying of wires.
  2. Give fixing nuts and remove assembly of the steering pump with the tank and hydraulic lines from a stretcher / case of the steering mechanism.

On the pump of the TRW model the tank of a round form, on the pump Delphi/Saginaw - angular is established.

  1. Turn out fixing bolts and remove the steering mechanism from a stretcher, - in case of need previously remove a bar of the stabilizer of cross-section stability (see. Removal and installation of the forward stabilizer of cross-section stability).

Producers recommend to make replacement of all fixing bolts without fail.

  1. In case of need remove steering drafts (see. Removal and installation of tips of steering drafts and Removal and installation of steering draft).

  1. Establish steering drafts with tips (see. Removal and installation of tips of steering drafts and Removal and installation of steering draft), - do not forget to plant on a shaft rubber consolidations.
  2. Carefully wipe interfaced surfaces of a case of the steering mechanism and a stretcher. Establish the steering mechanism on the regular place. Screw fixing bolts and tighten them with demanded effort.
  3. If removed, establish into place a bar of the stabilizer of cross-section stability (see. Removal and installation of the forward stabilizer of cross-section stability).
  4. Establish into place assembly of the steering pump with the tank of hydraulic liquid and connecting lines. Screw fixing nuts and tighten them with demanded effort.
  5. Restore initial connection of electroconducting, - fix a plait in intermediate clamps on a stretcher.
  6. Plant new rubber sealing rings on hydraulic tubes and connect the last to a case of the steering mechanism. Tighten cap nuts of shtutserny connections with demanded effort.
  7. At the corresponding complete set establish on the place on a stretcher basic hydraulic tubes / hoses. Screw fixing bolts and tighten them with demanded effort.
  8. Establish on a stretcher an arm of a back support of a suspension bracket of the power unit, tighten with demanded effort fixture.
  9. Establish a forward stretcher on the car (see. Removal and installation of a forward stretcher).
  10. Having pumped over system of hydrostrengthening of a wheel, remove from its path air jams (see. Air removal from a hydraulic path of GUR).
  11. At the first possibility drive away the car in a specialized workshop of car-care center for check and adjustment of a convergence of forward wheels.
