Removal and installation of a fuel tank

See the prevention at the beginning of pressure Sbrasyvaniye's section in a power supply system of petrol engines.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. On petrol models dump residual pressure in a power supply system (see Sbrasyvaniye pressure in a power supply system of petrol engines). Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.
  2. Before removal of a fuel tank it is necessary to remove from it all fuel. As drain stopper by producers it is not provided, it is necessary to remove a tank from the minimum rest of fuel, previously having removed the main it reserved a siphon method.
  3. Remove components of system of production of the fulfilled gases and thermofilters (see. System of production of the fulfilled gases - the general information, removal and installation).
  4. Prop up forward wheels protivootkatny boots and weaken an adjusting nut of the parking brake (see. Head Brake system).
  5. On the models, equipped with drum-type brake mechanisms of back wheels, disconnect a cable of a drive of the parking brake from the hook located before a brake drum. On models with disk brake mechanisms release the lever of the parking brake and disconnect from it a tip of a driving cable, then release a clamp and liberate a cable from a basic arm on a support (see. Head Brake system).
  6. Liberate a cable of a drive of the parking brake of intermediate arms and clamps and take him aside from a tank.
  1. On the Astra models disconnect electroconducting from the block of the gasoline pump / sensor of fuel consumption (see. Removal and installation of the fuel pump - petrol models and Removal and installation of the sensor of a stock of fuel), - on the Zafira models, a detachment of electroconducting is made from under the car.
  1. Open a cover of a jellied mouth and remove a rubber sealing ring. Turn out a bolt of fastening of a mouth to a body.
  1. Remove the right back wheel, give fixing screws and nuts and remove a loker of protection of a wheel arch.
  2. Mark and disconnect from a mouth two small hoses, previously having weakened collars of their fastening.
  3. Release collars and disconnect топливопроводы, brought to the basis of a jellied mouth. Turn out the bottom bolt of fastening of a jellied mouth and take the last from under the car.
  4. Walk on fuel lines from a tank to a place of their next fastening. Mark and disconnect both hoses, previously having weakened collars of their fastening.

If sockets of fast joining are applied to fastening of hoses, act according to instructions (see. Check of a condition and replacement of fuel lines and their shtutserny connections).

  1. On petrol models separate the fuel filter from an assembly strip of fastening of a fuel tank.
  1. Prop up a tank a telezhechny jack, previously having laid on a head of the last a piece of a board.
  2. Turn out fixing bolts and remove assembly strips.
  3. Smoothly lower a tank, in passing disconnecting all hoses. Take a tank from under the car.
  4. If in a tank water accumulated, uncover the fuel consumption gasoline pump / sensor (see. Removal and installation of the fuel pump - petrol models) also remove from a tank the fuel remains. If at a tank there are moisture traces, wash out it pure fuel. The tank is made of plastic and at serious damages is subject to replacement. Insignificant defects it can be eliminated in the conditions of a specialized workshop.
  5. Installation is made as it should be, the return to an order of dismantle of components. Pay attention to the next moments:
    1. Track, that at installation of a tank did not appear the hoses laid over it are pressed.
    2. Track reliability of a tightening of fixture of assembly strips.
    3. Track correctness of connection and reliability of fixing of all shlangovy and electric connections.
    4. Do not forget to make adjustment of the parking brake (see. Head Brake system).
    5. Before the first trip fill in in a tank a small amount of fuel and check it on existence of signs of development of leaks.
