Removal, check of a state and installation of a gas-distributing belt and cogwheels of the GRM drive

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

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 have the correct combination for input of the audio system in action!


2. Prop up back wheels antiretractable boots and strongly cock the parking brake.
3. Weaken nuts of fastening of forward wheels, then a front of the car and establish to a poddomkratta it on props (see the Head Routine maintenance).
4. Remove forward wheels and protection of a case of the engine.
5. Prop up a jack the power unit (for the purpose of distribution of loading lay wooden whetstone between a head of a jack and the pallet of a case of the engine).
6. Remove an arm of the top support of the engine (see Check of a state and replacement of support of a suspension bracket of the power unit).
7. Turn out spark plugs and take off driving belts (see. Routine maintenance).
8. Otboltite the steering pump also shift it aside, without disuniting hydraulic lines (see the Head Podvesk and a steering).
9. Take the probe of measurement of motive oil.
10. Bring the piston of the first cylinder into the provision VMT of the end of a step of compression (see Reduction of the piston of the first cylinder in the provision of the top dead point (TDP)).

The cranked shaft should be turned only in the normal direction (counterclockwise) – non-performance of this requirement will lead to violation of adjustments of a gas-distributing belt.


11. Remove the top cover of a belt of the GRM drive (see an accompanying illustration).

12. Remove from forward part of the engine an intermediate roller with an arm.

13. By means of a chain or tape key block a pulley of a kolenchatogoval from a provorachivaniye, then a face key weaken a bolt of fastening of a pulley (see an accompanying illustration).

14. Remove a pulley from a pin of a cranked shaft.
15. Pick up the directing phone of the measuring probe from forward part of the engine.
16. Remove the lower cover of a gas-distributing belt.

17. If the old belt is in good repair and will be established into place, mark with chalk or white paint the direction of its rotation and situation concerning cogwheels of shaft (see an accompanying illustration).

18. Weaken a bolt of fastening of a natyazhitel of a gas-distributing belt (see an accompanying illustration). Having wrung out a natyazhitel, weaken a belt, then again tighten a bolt. Remove the sensor of fluctuations of a cranked shaft (see in the same place), then throw off a belt from cogwheels. If removal of a belt is made for the purpose of performance of replacement of an epiploon of a cranked shaft, throw off from a pin of the last a cogwheel and internal directing a belt (see Replacement of a forward epiploon of a cranked shaft).

19. If there is a need for removal of a camshaft, or replacement of its epiploon, pass a big screw-driver through an opening in a shaft cogwheel for the purpose of blocking it from a provorachivaniye, then a face key weaken a fixing bolt and remove a wheel. Take a segment spline from a camshaft pin.

Check

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Manually check freedom of rotation of a roller of a natyazhitel, then pull it here and there, checking for existence of a side play in the bearing (see an accompanying illustration). The defective roller is subject to replacement.

2. Attentively examine a gas-distributing belt from both parties, checking it for existence of signs of wear (especially persistent walls of teeths), cracks, cuts, attritions and traces of oiling (see an accompanying illustration). The defective belt is subject to obligatory replacement.


If only run of the engine is not really small, replacement of a belt is recommended to be made regardless of its state. Do not establish an old belt on the engine at all, for all hundred percent being not sure of serviceability of its state.

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If removed, establish into place cogwheels of shaft (do not forget about a segment spline of a wheel of a camshaft and internal directing a belt on a cranked shaft). Tighten a bolt of fastening of a cogwheel of a camshaft with the demanded effort (see Specifications).

2. Before installation of a belt make sure that the cogwheel of a camshaft is established by a tag in the form of a point, or letters of "UP" up. Two adjusting tags have to appear in the plane of a surface of a head of cylinders (see an accompanying illustration).

3. Temporarily establish on a place and fix a bolt a pulley of a cranked shaft, then turn a shaft (if he was hit) so that the adjusting tag on its cogwheel was combined with the response index on the case of the oil pump (see an accompanying illustration).

4. Densely put on a belt a cogwheel of a cranked shaft, then carry out it under a roller of a natyazhitel and round cogwheels of the water pump and a camshaft (see an accompanying illustration).

5. Weaken a bolt of a natyazhitel, having provided a belt tension, then temporarily tighten a bolt.
6. Accurately turn a cranked shaft six times in the direction counterclockwise, then make sure of correctness of an arrangement of adjusting tags of a cogwheel of a camshaft. If the cranked shaft is turned with breakthroughs, or got jammed, it is not necessary to apply force as it can lead to damage of valves at blow them about the bottoms of pistons (if adjustment is brought down). Take off a belt and repeat procedure, paying special attention to combination of adjusting tags.
7. For adjustment of effort of a tension of a belt weaken half way (180 °) a bolt of a natyazhitel and turn a cranked shaft in the direction counterclockwise on three teeth for situation VMT. Now tighten a bolt with the demanded effort.
8. Establish into place all components which were removed in the course of dismantle.
9. Adjust efforts of a tension of driving belts (see the Head Routine maintenance).
10. Start the engine and check serviceability of its functioning.
