1. Lift car redock.
2. Check up deterioration of spherical support of the lever, having shaken the lever the mount inserted between it and a rack or a suspension bracket cross-beam (it is possible to compress also a support in a place of its installation, using special capture). Appreciable люфт will specify in necessity of replacement of the lever for gathering with a support, – replacement of these details separately is not provided.
3. Check up a condition of rubber plugs. At detection of cracks, ruptures or "drying" of rubber of the plug replace.

Removal and installation

1. Lift redock of the car and remove a wheel.
2. Turn away 2 bolts of fastening of an arm of the plug of an axis of the lever to a body.

3. Turn away a nut of fastening of a finger of a spherical support on a cross-beam of a suspension bracket and выпрессуйте a finger of a support from a cross-beam by means of a stripper. Take measures to damaging a rubber cover of a support.
4. Turn on самоподжимную a nut of a finger of a spherical support on a rotary fist and выпрессуйте a finger of a spherical support. If the lever with support varies, in the absence of a stripper a finger it is possible выпрессовать several strong blows of a hammer.
5. Remove the lever.
6. Replace the plug of an axis of the lever.
7. Installation is carried out upside-down. Nuts of fingers of spherical support replace. All connections tighten with the moments specified in subsection 11.1.2.
