Flywheel design

1–the flat flywheel established on early models;
2–the chasheobrazny flywheel established on later models

Coupling is intended for short-term separation of the engine and transmission at gear shifting or braking and their smooth connection at a car troganiye from a place, and also for protection of details of transmission from dynamic loadings.

Coupling consists of a disk of coupling, a leading part of coupling with a press disk and the mechanism of switching off of coupling.

The disk of coupling is established between a flywheel and a press disk of coupling and moves on shlitsa of primary shaft of a transmission.

To disconnect the engine from a transmission, it is necessary to take away vyzhimny a disk from a coupling disk. It is reached by use of a hummock drive. The fork of switching off of coupling moves vyzhimny the bearing which influences a spring of a vyzhimny disk and takes away press a disk from a coupling disk.

Such design of coupling allows to replace a disk of coupling, vyzhimny the bearing and a sealing ring of the directing plug without removal of the engine or a transmission from the car.

Since 1992 on models 1,8 and 2,0 of l started to establish a chasheobrazny flywheel (see fig. Flywheel design). Thus the torque is transferred more smoothly and transmission vibration decreases. However for replacement of a disk of coupling it is necessary to remove a transmission.
