Removal and installation of a cover of a head of cylinders



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 audiosystem input in action!

2. Remove from a head of cylinders a cover of the distributor of ignition with VV connected to it wires. Disconnect wires from the plugs on a head of cylinders and its cover (see. Head Routine maintenance). Do not forget to mark a wire in order to avoid violation of an order of ignition at assembly.
3. Mark and disconnect from the case of a throttle and a cover of a head of cylinders all procedures of a wire stirring to performance and hoses.
4. Carefully wipe a cover in order to avoid garbage hit in a head cylinders/assembly of the klapanny mechanism.
5. Turn out bolts of fastening of a cover of a head of cylinders – act as it should be, the return specified in a picture (see an illustration below).
6. Accurately uncover together with sealing laying. If laying подлипла to an interfaced surface of a head, обстучите a cover a hammer with soft brisk for the purpose of destruction of a layer of hermetic. At all do not undertake attempts to separate a cover by a poddevaniye it the lever entered between interfaced surfaces.



1. Separate old laying, then carefully smooth out interfaced surfaces of a head of cylinders and its cover. Having scratched out traces of old hermetic and laying fragments, wipe surfaces the rags moistened in acetone.
2. Check a condition of isolating plugs through passage and the rubber sealants established in candle niches. Defective components replace. Before installation of a cover make sure available on the places of rubber sealants of candles.
3. Impose a little RTV hermetic on corners where the interfaced surface of a head adjoins to assembly of yokes. Wait about five minutes, waiting the moment of the beginning of polymerization of hermetic.

Make sure that the top layer of hermetic slightly hardened, after it start cover installation (in the conditions of the increased humidity polymerization of hermetic can begin with a small delay).

4. Fill new cast laying in a flute going on perimeter of a cover and press a cover to a head. Establish isolating plugs through passage, screw nuts and tighten them in that order (see an accompanying illustration) with demanded effort (see. Specifications).

4. Further installation is made as it should be, the return to a removal order.
