Removal and installation of a steering column

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Lower a steering wheel in extreme bottom position and put forward it against the stop. Fix a column in this position, having taken out a key from the ignition lock.
  2. Remove a steering wheel (Removal and steering wheel installation see).
  1. Turn out the fixing screw and remove the handle from the lever of adjustment of position of a column.
  1. Remove decorative covers, turn out fixing screws and remove the top section of a casing of a steering column.
  1. Turn out three fixing screws (two above and one below) and remove the bottom section of a casing of a column.

    A — Screws of fastening of casings of a steering column (model Astra)
    B — Screws of fastening of a casing of a steering column (model Zafira)

A.

B.
  1. Having hooked a screw-driver, disunite a socket of electroconducting of the contact block of a pillow of safety.
  2. Release clamps and remove the contact block from a steering column.

On models of last years of release contact blocks are equipped запорным by the device keeping it in the central position, - do not release this device on the removed contact block.

  1. Remove from a steering column подрулевые switches (the Onboard electric equipment see the Head).
  2. Take the ignition key and remove ring facing immobilizatora/транспондера.
  1. Insert the ignition key and turn it in position АСС, insert a thin screw-driver into an aperture of the lock of ignition and wring out it запорный a pin then accurately liberate the cylinder of the lock from the case.
  1. At a corresponding complete set remove from a steering column the block immobilizatora/the block транспондера, - if the block is not equipped by latches disconnect electroconducting, then separate the block from the case of the lock of ignition and remove the cylinder of the lock of ignition (the Onboard electric equipment see the Head); on blocks with latches remove the cylinder of the lock of ignition (the Onboard electric equipment see the Head), then separate the block from the lock case. In case of need remove a protective cap and disconnect electroconducting.
  1. Accurately remove column and spring covers.
  1. Liberate burn down conductings from a steering column, then remove the bottom sections of furnish of the panel of devices and a sleeve of giving of air in a driver's foot well.
  2. Mark position of the top joint of an intermediate shaft concerning a steering column, then turn out and remove a coupling bolt of a collar. Remove a shaft with шлицов, - pay attention that the shaft has a telescopic design.
  3. On the models equipped with electronic system of stabilisation (ESP), disconnect electroconducting from the gauge of an angle of rotation of a steering wheel, a screw-driver wring out a clamp and remove the gauge from a transitive nozzle. Slightly shift the gauge downwards.
  1. Prop up a steering column, release the bottom collar of a column and the top fixing bolts. In case of need release the bottom fastening, - try not to bend capture. On models with ESP slightly pull a column upwards and disconnect the gauge established in its bottom part. Try to remember landing position of various washers and the linings established between the bottom collar and the top arm of fastening of a column.
  1. Remove a column from a basic arm on a partition of an impellent compartment and take it from car salon.

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Before installation of a steering column acquire the bottom fixing collar and tighten on some turns its coupling bolt, - do not establish while the top fixing bolt. Accurately pass a steering column in the bottom collar, - try not to damage conducting. On models with ESP establish the gauge of an angle of rotation on the bottom part of a steering column, - track reliability защелкивания a clamp.
  2. On models since 2000 вып. Establish the top bolts of fastening and tighten them with demanded effort.
  3. On models on 1999 вып., where washers have been established, insert them between the bottom basic arm and a cross-beam, insert the bottom collar and the top fixing bolts and tighten them with demanded effort.
  4. On models on 1999 вып., where washers were not established, prepare 4 washers in the thickness on 0.1 mm and establish them together as one 4-millimetric between the bottom basic arm and a cross-beam, then tighten with demanded effort a coupling bolt of a collar. Grasp the bottom part of an internal column and try to push out it upwards (in a direction to a steering wheel), - the directing sleeve of grey colour on the bottom fixing knot should not move, otherwise remove one of washers and repeat check. Having achieved satisfactory result, insert the bottom fixing bolts and tighten them with demanded effort. In case of need make sure that the stopper is established before the bottom sleeve.
  5. On models with ESP attach electroconducting to the gauge of an angle of rotation of a steering wheel.
  6. Establish an intermediate shaft on шлицы in the bottom of a column, - track correctness of combination of the landing labels put in the course of dismantle (at a wrong joint to insert a bolt into a collar it will not be possible). Insert a coupling bolt of a collar and reliably it tighten.
  7. Establish an air line and the bottom sections of furnish. Fix burn down electroconductings in intermediate clamps in a column.
  8. Operating as it should be the return to an order of dismantle of components, establish on a steering column the block immobilizatora/transpondera, - on models with the block without latches, establish the cylinder of the lock of ignition (the Onboard electric equipment see the Head), then attach the block to the lock case; on models with the block equipped with latches establish it on the lock case, then establish the cylinder (the Onboard electric equipment see the Head). In case of need connect electroconducting, then establish a protective cap.
  9. Establish a column and spring cover.
  10. Insert the ignition key into the lock, turn it in position АСС, plant the ignition switch on the lock case, - track reliability защелкивания a clamp.
  11. Take the ignition key and establish ring facing immobilizatora/transpondera.
  12. Establish on a column подрулевые switches (the Onboard electric equipment see the Head).
  13. Establish on a steering column the contact block of a pillow of safety, - track correctness of hit of directing pins in reception apertures, reliably latch clamps.

Extremely important it is correctly latched clamps, - in case of their damage the contact block is subject to replacement in gathering.

  1. Establish at first bottom, then top sections of a casing of a steering column, screw and tighten fixing screws.
  2. Establish the handle on the lever of a regulator of position of a column and tighten the fixing screw.
  3. In summary establish a steering wheel (Removal and steering wheel installation see).
