PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. To establish the car over the viewing channel or on the lift.
2. To designate mutual position of the crosswise hinge and a flange of a gear wheel of the main transfer and to disconnect the driveshaft from the back bridge. To unscrew the case of the intermediate bearing, having designated the provision of laying between the case of the bearing and a car body (these designations will be useful at installation of the driveshaft and its intermediate bearing).
3. To disconnect the driveshaft from a transmission, paying attention not to damage a sealing ring in a back part of a case. After shaft extraction the opening in a back part of a case of a transmission should be muffled a stopper or a forward tip of the faulty driveshaft not to allow an oil effluence from a transmission.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. From an opening of a back part of a case of a transmission to take a stopper. To check installation of a sealing ring of a back part of a case of a transmission and to insert into it the forward end of the driveshaft, paying attention not to damage an edge of a sealing ring.
2. To establish the intermediate bearing of the driveshaft, having arranged under it the corresponding laying according to the designations put during dismantling (without tightening fastening bolts).
3. To connect the driveshaft to a flange of a leading gear wheel of the main transfer according to the designations of a relative positioning put earlier. To establish the new laying protecting bolts from unscrewing.
4. Rotating the driveshaft to establish the intermediate bearing and to tighten bolts of fastening the corresponding moment.
5. To check and in case of need to add amount of oil in a transmission.
