10.8. Removal and installation of the main cylinder of coupling



1. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.

If the stereosystem established on the car is equipped with a security code before disconnecting the battery make sure that you have the correct combination for input of the audio system in action!

2. Remove the components located in a motive compartment and blocking access to assembly of the main cylinder of coupling.
3. Get suitable capacity under the car and prepare rags for collecting the liquid spilling at a detachment of hydraulic lines.
4. Release the nipple socket of the hydraulic line brought to the cylinder and merge from it liquid in the prepared capacity.

The liquid merged from a path is not subject to reuse and has to be utilized according to regional laws on environmental protection. Remember also that hydraulic liquid is aggressive chemical compound and is capable to damage LKP at hit on the painted body surfaces!

5. Disconnect a cutting finger of fastening of a pusher of the cylinder to a coupling pedal. Remove a washer and disconnect a pusher.
6. Give the sensor switch fixing nuts and remove assembly of the cylinder from a back partition of a motive compartment.

Between a landing flange of the cylinder and the interfaced surface of a partition the sealing laying which is subject to replacement is established.



1. Installation is made upside-down. Do not forget to grease all contact and basic knots.
2. Having finished assembly, "pump over" a hydraulic path, having completely removed from it air traffic jams (see the Section Removal of Air from a hydraulic path of the drive of switching off of coupling).
