Repair РКПП - the general information

Composers of the present Management do not recommend to owners of cars to undertake performance of major repairs РКПП independently. During performance of procedures of dismantling and transmission assemblage it is necessary to remove, and then to establish into place set of small components. It is necessary to make weight of the most precise measurements and, by selection of adjusting washers, rings and remote plugs, accurately to expose set of backlashes. In view of all aforesaid, it will be more reasonable to charge performance of major repairs РКПП to experts of car-care centre. We will notice that in many cases there is a possibility on an exchange basis to get the restored block that often there is more cheaply, than a carrying out of difficult repair.

Despite the told, independent performance of repair РКПП by the mechanic-fan at all is not absolutely impossible action. Indispensable conditions are only presence of the necessary special tool and accuracy in the approach to performance of all procedures.

Besides, it is final, the workbench, or the special assembly stand is required strong, equipped with a vice.

During performance of procedures of dismantling РКПП try to remember, and it is better to write down, an order of installation of each of removed details. On an accompanying illustration for an example design РКПП F23 is shown.
