Removal and installation of a manual box (switching) of transfers (RKPP)



  1. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.
  2. The car also establish to Poddomkratta it on props.
  3. Remove a strange plate.
  4. Remove the driveshaft(s) (The head Stsepleniye and the transmission line). Wrap up RKPP case end face a plastic bag in order to avoid losses of gearbox oil and hit in a case of pollution.
  5. Disconnect draft of switching of the transfer case from the lever of gear shifting or the lever of the choice of the modes (if that is provided) (The head the Transfer case).
  6. Disunite the electric socket of the sensor of speed of the car (VSS).
  7. Release a plait of wires from clips on RKPP case.
  8. Disconnect ventilating hoses of cases of RKPP and the transfer case.
  9. Disconnect wires from the electric switch on a case of the transfer case (if that is provided).
  10. Prop up the engine. It can be made from above - by means of the winch, or from below - by an engine case pallet poddomkrachivaniye (through wooden whetstone). The engine has to remain propped up all the time until transmission is removed from the car.
  11. Prop up RKPP a jack - the type which is preferably specially intended for this purpose. Safety chains will help to record reliably a box on a jack.
  12. Give nuts and bolts of fastening of a cross beam.

Details of fixture of a back support and cross beam.

  1. Slightly raise transmission and remove a cross beam.
  2. Remove the transfer case from RKPP (if that is equipped) (The head the Transfer case).
  3. Lower RKPP so that access to the switching lever was formed.
  4. Having reached a gear shifting lever boot in the top part of RKPP remove it from the lever basis. Shift a cover up a lever rod, having formed access to the holder of the lever.

Components of assembly of the lever of gear shifting of RKPP.

  1. For a gear shifting lever detachment from RKPP:
    • Reach around a box its top part and fingers press the holder of the lever of gear shifting down.
    • For release turn the holder counterclockwise.
    • Lift the lever, having taken out it together with the holder from the basis.

There is no need of extraction of the lever from a cover on the floor panel. Just leave the lever in this situation until installation of a box into place.

  1. Disconnect from wires and remove the sensor of provision of a bent shaft (The head Sistemy of decrease in toxicity of the fulfilled gases and engine management). Do not lose screws of fastening of the sensor.
  2. Disconnect the executive cylinder from a coupling case (The head Stsepleniye and the transmission line) and shift it aside, having released working space. Do not disconnect hydraulic lines from the cylinder AT ALL! If lines are disconnected from the executive cylinder, it will be impossible to pump over system. The hydraulic system of switching off of coupling (the main cylinder / tank, hydraulic lines, the executive cylinder) represents the integral, not subject to a partition assembly.

Act extremely carefully not to bend and to twist the line of hydraulic system of coupling.

  1. Give bolts of fastening of the transmission to the engine.
  2. Last time make sure that all electric sockets and hoses are disconnected from a box, then begin to move it together with a jack back, releasing a main shaft from a coupling case.
  3. After release of a main shaft lower transmission and take it from under the car.

After removal of RKPP do not allow squeezing of a pedal of coupling.

  1. Components of coupling can be examined at this stage after their removal from the engine (The head Stsepleniye and the transmission line). In most cases at the RKPP installation into place components of coupling need to be replaced.



  1. If removed, install into place components of coupling (The head Stsepleniye and the transmission line).
  2. After fixing of the transmission on a jack, as well as at removal, lift it in adjusting situation and begin to move carefully forward, entering a main shaft into a nave of the clutch plate (conducted). Do not make excessive effort at installation of a box - if the main shaft does not enter coupling, adjust a corner and height of provision of RKPP and/or rotate slightly a shaft for the correct combination of its shlits with coupling nave vents.
  3. Establish into place bolts of fastening of the transmission to the engine. Tighten them with the required effort.
  4. Establish into place a cross beam and a support of the transmission. Tighten fixing nuts and bolts with the required effort.
  5. Remove the jacks which are propping up the engine and the transmission.
  6. Establish into place all components which were removed at dismantle of RKPP. At installation of the transfer case follow instructions of the Head the Transfer case, install the driveshaft according to the description to data in the Head
  7. Make sure that all wires and hoses are connected to the unions.
  8. Track that in the level of gearbox oil in the transmission conformed to specification requirements (The head Nastroyki and routine maintenance).
  9. Remove jacks and lower the car on the earth.
  10. On models 4WD connect into place draft of switching of the transfer case (The head the Transfer case).
  11. Connect a negative wire to the battery.
  12. Make trial runs of the car and check whether there are no leaks.
