12.2. General information


The transmission is placed in a case from an aluminum alloy and attached to the left end face of the engine. It consists of a transmission, the main transfer and differential.

The torque from a cranked shaft of the engine is transferred through coupling to primary shaft of a transmission on which the coupling disk is established. From a secondary shaft the torque is transferred to differential and to power shafts.

In neutral situation primary shaft and gear wheels of a secondary shaft rotate freely and do not transfer a torque to differential.

The mechanism of gear shifting is put in action by the lever, located on a car floor by means of a switching rod. The mechanism of gear shifting moves the corresponding fork which moves the synchronizer and provides rigid connection of a gear wheel of a secondary shaft with secondary shaft.

Elements are located a heel of transfer under a cover in a transmission end face.

The reverse gear joins at the expense of gearing of an intermediate gear wheel with two pryamozuby gear wheels, is established ny on primary and secondary shaft of a transmission.

In a transmission kosozuby gear wheels that reduces level of noise are used and increases wear resistance.

On a transmission of F18 there is a special mechanism which allows to include a reverse gear silently.
