Typical examples of deterioration V-shaped приводных belts


Typical examples of deterioration многоручьевых приводных belts


Приводные, or as them sometimes name, V-shaped belts are located in a forward part of the power unit and play the 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 копеечку.

Family V-shaped concern as well многоручьевые belts.

The quantity used on the engine приводных belts 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, can be put by one belt in action more than one unit.

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

Check up lever position натяжителя a belt, — it should move freely and to occupy position between an emphasis on a basis plate. If the lever натяжителя is pressed to an emphasis, it is necessary to replace and a belt and натяжитель.

Replacement

Petrol models

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove an air cleaner with inlet air lines and the gauge of the expense of air (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).
  1. If приводной the belt is recognised by suitable for the further use, with a paint or a marker mark an original direction of its rotation. Try to remember an order of packing of a belt round pulleys.
  1. For easing of a tension of a belt develop натяжитель counter-clockwise for the central bolt. Throw off a belt from pulleys before to remove a belt from the engine accurately release натяжитель.
  2. Make replacement of the failed components (Check see above), - the description of procedures of removal and installation натяжителя is resulted in the Head an engine Electric equipment.
  3. Establish a belt on the engine (if the belt which was in the use is established, track observance of an original direction of its rotation), - track correctness of packing of edges of a belt in ручьевых flutes of pulleys. Release натяжитель and once again make sure of correctness of installation and a belt lining.
  4. Overcoming resistance of a spring, wring out the suitable lever a tension roller and still check up correctness of packing of a belt, - release натяжитель smoothly.
  5. Establish into place an air cleaner with accompanying components (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).

Diesel models

Models with the engine of 1.7 l SOHC

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove an air cleaner with air lines and the gauge of the expense of air (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).
  1. If приводной the belt is recognised by suitable for the further use, with a paint or a marker mark an original direction of its rotation. Try to remember an order of packing of a belt round pulleys.
  1. On the models equipped with a central air of air, by means of a face key ослабьте натяжитель also throw off многоручьевый a belt from pulleys.
  2. Turn out fixing bolts and remove a basic arm of the generator.
  3. Ослабьте a fixing bolt, then, having turned a nut натяжителя, ослабьте effort of a tension of a belt also throw off last with приводных pulleys.
  4. Establish a belt on the engine (if the belt which was in the use is established, track observance of an original direction of its rotation), - track correctness of packing of edges of a belt in ручьевых flutes of pulleys. Having put to a nut натяжителя effort 450 Н (a new belt) / 250—400 Н (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 К/В, take away натяжитель by means of a face key and lay a belt on pulleys, - remarks above see. In summary release натяжитель.
  7. Establish into place an air cleaner with accompanying components (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).

Models with the engine of 1.7 l DOHC

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove an air cleaner with air lines and the gauge of the expense of air (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).
  1. If приводной the belt is recognised by suitable for the further use, with a paint or a marker mark an original direction of its rotation. Try to remember an order of packing of a belt round pulleys.
  1. Develop натяжитель counter-clockwise for the central bolt, ослабьте a tension of a belt and throw off it with приводных pulleys.
  2. Establish a new belt on the engine. Release натяжитель, then once again check up correctness of packing of a belt.
  3. Establish into place an air cleaner with accompanying components (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).

Models with engines of 2.0 l

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Remove an air cleaner together with air lines and the gauge of the expense of air.
  2. Cock a lay brake, поддомкратьте redock of the car and establish it on props. At a corresponding complete set remove protection картера.
  3. Mark position of balancing cargo (демпфера крутильных fluctuations) on right приводном to a shaft. Turn out fixing bolts and remove cargo (Coupling and power shafts see the Head).
  4. Accurately mark adjusting position of the right support of a suspension bracket of the power unit concerning a stretcher. Prop up the engine тележечным a jack (for the purpose of loading distribution lay between a head of a jack and the pallet картера the engine wooden брусок).
  5. If the belt established on the engine is recognised by suitable for the further use before support removal, mark an original direction of its rotation. Try to remember an order of packing of a belt on pulleys (the Scheme of a lining of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units see engines 2.0 an illustration).
  1. For easing of a tension of a belt develop натяжитель counter-clockwise for a bolt. Throw off a belt from pulleys before to remove a belt from the engine accurately release натяжитель.
  1. Keeping натяжитель in the taken away position, plant a replaceable belt on pulleys.
  2. Establish on the right power shaft демпфер крутильных fluctuations and tighten bolts of its fastening with demanded effort (Coupling and power shafts see the Head).
  3. At a corresponding complete set establish into place protection картера and lower the car on the earth.
  4. Establish into place an air cleaner with accompanying components (see the Head of the Power supply system and release).
