Repair B3-B4/Passat B3-B4 Volkswagen Passat>> Suspension brackets>> Forward suspension bracket>> Amortizatorny rack of a forward suspension bracket
Removal of a rack make in the following order:
– remove a decorative cap of a wheel;
– unscrew a nut of fastening of a nave in situation «the car on wheels»;
– weaken bolts of fastening of a wheel;
– will hang out and fix on basic racks a forward part of the car;
– unscrew bolts of fastening of a wheel and remove a wheel;
– establish a jack under the external end of the cross-section lever;

Fig. 10.2. Amortization rack of a forward suspension bracket: 1–cover; 2–nut of fastening of a rack; 3–emphasis; 4–shlitsevy nut; 5–bearing; 6–spring cup; 7–compression buffer; 8–protective cover; 9–spring; 10-shock-absorber; 11-rotary fist


Fig. 10.3. Otvorachivaniye of a nut of fastening of a rod of the shock-absorber


– in a motor compartment by means of the lever uncover 1 (fig. 10.2) the top part of an amortization rack. Holding from a provorachivaniye a shock-absorber rod a six-sided key dimension of 7 mm, a key of VW 3078 unscrew самоконтрящуюся a nut of fastening of a rod of the shock-absorber (fig. 10.3) ;
– unscrew a nut and remove a connector of the stabilizer of cross-section stability;
– unscrew a nut and remove a spherical support of steering draft from a rotary fist;
– remove a brake support and, using a soft wire, tie up it;
– note the provision of an amortization rack and a rotary fist relatively each other;
– note the provision of the top and bottom bolts of fastening of a rotary fist to a rack correctly to establish them on former places, and unscrew bolts;
– replace самоконтрящиеся nuts and special laying;
– lower the cross-section lever for rack release from the top fastening then by means of the lever separate an amortizatorny rack from a rotary fist and take it from under a forward wing.
Dismantling of a rack is made in the following order:
– to clear an amortizatorny rack of dirt;

Fig. 10.4. Spring compression by the special adaptation


– for removal of the shock-absorber it is necessary to compress a spring for what use the special adaptation (fig. 10.4) ;

Fig. 10.5. Otvorachivaniye of a nut of fastening of the top cup


– compress a spring until the top cup will be released, then unscrew a grip or the special VW-524 tool (with a six-sided head) a shlitsevy nut in the top part of a rod of the shock-absorber (fig. 10.5) .

       PREVENTION
At installation of captures on rounds of a spring watch that captures were reliably fixed on a spring and did not come off at its compression. A spring compress evenly from two parties. Because of danger to be traumatized do not undertake attempts to pull together spring rounds a rope or a wire as effort spring compression very big and exists probability of a rupture of unreliable fastening.

Thus hold a shock-absorber rod from a provorachivaniye a natural an internal shestigrannik. As other way it is possible to clamp a shock-absorber rod a face or rozhkovy key on facets;

       PREVENTION
The central nut of fastening turn on only at the compressed spring.

– remove the bearing 5 (see fig. 10.2 ) an amortization rack from the top cup 6 (see fig. 10.2 ) springs. At replacement of the bearing replace all bearing assembled;
– remove a cylindrical spring from an amortization rack, previously having noted the provision of its top part;
– remove from a rod the buffer of compression 7 (see fig. 10.2 ) and a protective cover 8;
– if it is required to replace a spring, slowly unclench it. If the shock-absorber is replaced only, a spring leave compressed.
Check. Check all elements of an amortizatorny rack on wear, damages or deformation. Check smoothness of a course of a rod of the shock-absorber.
Check the shock-absorber on tightness, and its rod on dot corrosion on all length. In the presence of defects the shock-absorber is subject to replacement.

       PREVENTION
Springs are necessary for changing in pair.
New springs have an anticorrosive varnish covering. Before installation of springs check integrity of a covering and if necessary tint springs.


Assembly carry out in sequence, return dismantling.
Installation of a rack is carried out to sequences, return to removal.
Insert an amortization rack and screw new самоконтрящуюся a nut of fastening of a rod of the shock-absorber. If were established a new amortizatorny rack, check a corner of disorder of forward wheels and in case of need adjust it (see. «Corners of installation of wheels»).
