Replacing the CV joint covers of a car Lada Largus with a JH3 gearbox
We change the anthers of the drive hinges in case of damage or when replacing the hinge.
Preparing the car for repair. We perform work on a lift or on a viewing hole.
Replacing the cover of the inner hinge of the right wheel drive
Removing the drive (see article on removing drives).
Clamp the drive shaft in a vise with soft jaws.
Saw through a large boot collar.
Remove the boot from the hinge body and take out the hinge body.
Using pliers, remove the retaining ring.
Using a core, mark the position of the inner hinge housing relative to the shaft (if we replace only the anther).
Using a drift and a hammer, we knock the inner casing off the shaft.
We bite the small clamp with wire cutters and remove the anther from the hinge.
Remove the spring along with the thrust washer.
We wash and blow through all the insides of the hinge. We inspect and defect details.
Assemble in reverse order. Through the mandrel we press the three-stud into the position that was marked before removal.
Before putting on the boot, apply a thin layer of lubricant.
Pour 124 cm3 of lubricant into the hinge cavity.
Replacing the cover and bearing of the inner joint of the left wheel drive
Clamp the drive shaft in a vise.
Remove the retaining ring
Mark the position relative to the shaft and knock the three-stud off the shaft
Remove the inner part of the hinge
We bite the collar with wire cutters
Remove the boot. We remove the holder from it
We install the drive shaft in a vise so that the bearing rests against the jaws of the vise, and compress the bearing
Remove the bearing and boot from the shaft.
We press the bearing on the press.
For correct positioning on the shaft, the bearing must be pressed onto it so that the distance between the ends of the bearing and the shaft is 118±0.2 mm.
This requires a mandrel, which can be made from a piece of pipe with an outer diameter of 30 mm, an inner diameter of 26 mm, and a length of 118 ± 0.2 mm.
We put the mandrel on the shaft and press the bearing until the end of the mandrel is flush with the end of the shaft.
After that, we put on a new boot and attach it to the outer ring of the bearing.
We press the three-stud, put on the retaining ring.
Replacing the boot of the outer joint of the wheel drive
The outer joint is non-separable, so the new boot can be changed by first removing the inner joint and pulling it through the entire shaft.
Remove the boot of the inner hinge (see above). We mark the position of the damper relative to the shaft with a marker.
Remove the damper from the shaft.
Saw or bite the boot clamps.
Remove the boot from the outer hinge housing.
We wash the hinge. We inspect and defect.
Assemble the hinge in reverse order.
We put 294±10 cm 3 lubricants into the hinge.
