7.1.2. Adjustment of a gap in bearings of naves of forward wheels

Periodically check and if necessary adjust bearings of naves of wheels. At too big side play in bearings during the movement there are blows destroying bearings, vibration on a steering wheel, unevenly (spots) tires wear out. At a strong inhaling bearings strongly heat up therefore lubricant follows from them and bearings fail.
It will be required to you: a special tubular key "on 55", the screw-driver with a flat edge, the hammer, a chisel.
1. Slow down the car the parking brake, establish an emphasis under back wheels of the car. Lift and establish a forward part of the car on support.
2. Remove the coupling of shutdown of a wheel (see. "Removal and installation of the coupling of shutdown of wheels").
3. A chisel unbend a petal of a key washer and turn off a nave lock-nut.
4. Having hooked the screw-driver, take a key washer.
5. Turning a wheel for self-installation of bearings, tighten a nave nut against the stop.
6. Turn off an adjusting nut of hug bearings on 1–2 sides. Turning a wheel a hand, check ease of its rotation and tighten a nut of adjustment of hug bearings the moment of 30-40 N · m (3–4 kgfs · м).
7. Establish a new key washer and bend petals.

Note
When latching nuts of hug bearings bend petals of a key washer on the verge of a nut and a lock-nut.

8. Wrap a lock-nut.
9. Check adjustment of wheel bearings, at the correct adjustment the wheel has to rotate freely, without jammings and a noticeable axial gap.
10. Bend petals of a key washer.
11. Establish the removed details as it should be, the return to removal.
