Check of a condition and replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units

Check


Typical examples of wear of V-shaped driving belts


Typical examples of wear of mnogoruchyevy driving belts


Driving, or as them sometimes call, V-shaped belts are located in a forward part of the power unit and play important role in functioning of the engine and many other systems of the car. Eventually belts wear out and should look round regularly according to the schedule of routine maintenance of the car in order to avoid the serious engine failures which correction of consequences can become the owner of the car in kopek.

V-obraznykh family treat as well mnogoruchyevy belts.

The quantity of driving belts used on the engine depends on a car complete set. Belts are applied to a drive of such auxiliary units, as the generator, steering and water pumps, the compressor of the conditioner of air, etc. Depending on the scheme of an arrangement of the pulleys, by one belt can be put in action more than one unit.

Muffle the engine, open a cowl and find driving belts in a forward part of the power unit. Highlighting itself a small lamp, fingers feel belts on all their length, checking on existence of cracks and stratifications. Presence on a belt of attritions, zapolirovanny sites to shine and other obvious defects (see illustrations Typical examples of wear of V-shaped driving belts and Typical examples of wear of mnogoruchyevy driving belts) is inadmissible also. Examine belts from both parties for what overwind them. The worn-out or damaged belt is subject to replacement.

Check position of the lever of a natyazhitel of a belt — it should move freely and occupy situation between an emphasis on a basis plate. If the lever of a natyazhitel is pressed to an emphasis, it is necessary to replace both a belt and a natyazhitel.

Replacement

Petrol models

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove an air purifier with inlet air lines and the sensor of a consumption of air (see. Head of the Power supply system and release).
  1. If the driving belt is recognized suitable for further use, with paint or a marker mark the original direction of its rotation. Try to remember an order of laying of a belt round pulleys.
  1. For weakening of a tension of a belt develop a natyazhitel counter-clockwise for the central bolt. Throw off a belt from pulleys before removing a belt from the engine accurately release a natyazhitel.
  2. Make replacement of the failed components (see above Check), - the description of procedures of removal and installation of a natyazhitel is provided in Head engine Electric equipment.
  3. Establish a belt on the engine (if the belt which was in the use is established, track observance of the original direction of its rotation), - track correctness of laying of edges of a belt in ruchyevy flutes of pulleys. Release a natyazhitel and once again make sure of correctness of installation and belt laying.
  4. Overcoming resistance of a spring, wring out the suitable lever a tension roller and still check correctness of laying of a belt, - release a natyazhitel smoothly.
  5. Establish into place an air purifier with accompanying components (see. Head of the Power supply system and release).

Diesel models

Models with the engine of 1.7 l of SOHC

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove an air purifier with air lines and the sensor of a consumption of air (see. Head of the Power supply system and release).
  1. If the driving belt is recognized suitable for further use, with paint or a marker mark the original direction of its rotation. Try to remember an order of laying of a belt round pulleys.
  1. On the models equipped with central air of air, by means of a face key weaken a natyazhitel and throw off a mnogoruchyevy belt from pulleys.
  2. Turn out fixing bolts and remove a basic arm of the generator.
  3. Weaken fixing bolt, then, having turned a nut of a natyazhitel, weaken effort of a tension of a belt and throw off the last from driving pulleys.
  4. Establish a belt on the engine (if the belt which was in the use is established, track observance of the original direction of its rotation), - track correctness of laying of edges of a belt in ruchyevy flutes of pulleys. Having made a nut of a natyazhitel effort of 450 N (a new belt) / 250 — 400 N (the belt which was in the use), tighten fixing bolt.
  5. Establish a basic arm of the generator and tighten bolts of its fastening.
  6. On the models equipped To/in, take away a natyazhitel by means of a face key and lay a belt on pulleys, - see remarks above. In summary release a natyazhitel.
  7. Establish into place an air purifier with accompanying components (see. Head of the Power supply system and release).

Models with the engine of 1.7 l of DOHC

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove an air purifier with air lines and the sensor of a consumption of air (see. Head of the Power supply system and release).
  1. If the driving belt is recognized suitable for further use, with paint or a marker mark the original direction of its rotation. Try to remember an order of laying of a belt round pulleys.
  1. Develop a natyazhitel counter-clockwise for the central bolt, weaken a tension of a belt and throw off it from driving pulleys.
  2. Establish a new belt on the engine. Release a natyazhitel, then once again check correctness of laying of a belt.
  3. Establish into place an air purifier with accompanying components (see. Head of the Power supply system and release).

Models with engines of 2.0 l


The scheme of laying of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units on engines of 2.0 l

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove an air purifier together with air lines and the sensor of a consumption of air.
  2. Cock the parking brake, поддомкратьте a front of the car and establish it on props. At the corresponding complete set remove protection of a case.
  3. Mark the provision of balancing cargo (a damper of krutilny fluctuations) on right driving to a shaft. Turn out fixing bolts and remove cargo (see. Head Coupling and power shafts).
  4. Accurately mark the adjusting provision of the right support of a suspension bracket of the power unit concerning a stretcher. Prop up the engine a telezhechny jack (for the purpose of distribution of loading lay between a head of a jack and the pallet of a case of the engine wooden whetstone).
  5. If the belt established on the engine is recognized suitable for the further use, before support removal, mark the original direction of its rotation. Try to remember an order of laying of a belt on pulleys (see an illustration the Scheme of laying of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units on engines of 2.0 l).
  1. For weakening of a tension of a belt develop a natyazhitel counter-clockwise for a bolt. Throw off a belt from pulleys before removing a belt from the engine accurately release a natyazhitel.
  1. Holding a natyazhitel in the taken-away situation, plant a replaceable belt on pulleys.
  2. Establish on the right power shaft a damper of krutilny fluctuations and tighten bolts of its fastening with demanded effort (see. Head Coupling and power shafts).
  3. At the corresponding complete set establish into place protection of a case and lower the car on the earth.
  4. Establish into place an air purifier with accompanying components (see. Head of the Power supply system and release).
