13.18. Removal and installation of an automatic transmission



Do not remove a transmission from the car for repair before malfunction as the majority of tests demands that the transmission was in the car will not be professionally revealed.


1. Remove a weight wire from the accumulator.
2. Merge transmission liquid.
3. Disconnect five electric sockets from switches, electromagnetic blocks and sensors, then release electroconducting from fastening brackets.
4. Disconnect a gear shifting cable from the lever of a choice of transfers on a transmission, then unscrew bolts of fastening of an arm of support of a cable or take a cable from an arm. Move a cable aside from a transmission and, using a soft wire, tie up it to a body.
5. Take a hose of ventilation of a case of an automatic transmission from under an accumulator arm, thus take it from fastening brackets.
6. Disconnect the electric socket and electroconducting of the sensor of oxygen.
7. Disconnect from a transmission a cable of a drive of a speedometer.
8. Disconnect from a transmission hoses of supply of transmission liquid to a radiator.
9. Support the engine about its left support. For support of the engine it is necessary to use the special Opel No. KM-263 tool. Alternatively the engine can be supported with использова niy the load-lifting mechanism.
10. At existence remove from wheels caps, then weaken bolts of fastening of forward wheels. Tighten the hand brake, then lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports. Keep in mind that the car should be lifted rather highly in order that from under it it was possible to take a transmission. Remove forward wheels.
11. Check that the engine is reliably supported, then remove a forward bottom frame.
12. Take internal hinges of power shafts from differential and, using a soft wire, suspend power shafts to a car body. Close openings for shaft in a transmission suitable jams.
13. Unscrew three bolts, transmissions fixing a protective plate, then note a relative positioning гидротран a sformator and a drive plate. A wrench for a bolt of fastening of a pulley of a cranked shaft turn a cranked shaft of the engine in such situation that one of bolts of fastening of the hydrotransformer was available. A screw-driver or mount for teeths of a gear wreath fix a drive plate from a provorachivaniye and unscrew a bolt of fastening of the hydrotransformer. Turn a cranked shaft of the engine and similarly unscrew the remained two bolts.
14. A jack through wooden whetstone support a transmission.
15. Remove the left support of a transmission for what unscrew two bolts, fixing a rubber pillow to a body of the car and three bolts, support fixing an arm to a transmission.
16. Check reliability of support of a transmission, then unscrew the remained bolts of fastening of a transmission to the engine.
17. Lower a transmission and take it from under the car.
18. Move the hydrotransformer on an entrance shaft to a case of a transmission and fix it in this situation. For this purpose it is possible to use the steel strip screwed by bolts.


Use of the special tool for a tightening of bolts of fastening of the hydrotransformer

1. Installation is made in sequence, return to removal taking into account the next moments:

– if at removal from a hydrotransform the Torah flowed out transmission liquid, fill in it to norm. Wipe the hydrotransformer plug that at installation not to damage a sealing ring of an entrance shaft of a transmission and check that the hydrotransformer was correctly combined with pump shaft;
– if replacement of an automatic transmission is made, wash out radiator channels for cooling of transmission liquid;
– using tap М10 x 1,25 clear a carving of openings for fastening гидротран a sformator and at installation a hydrotrance of a formator use new bolts;
– using a tap, clear a carving in a body opening for fastening of the left support of the power unit. Use new bolts for fastening of the left support of the power unit to a body;
tighten all nuts and bolts the demanded moment;
– for a tightening of bolts of fastening of the hydrotransformer to a plate of a drive it is necessary to use the special tool (see drawing);
– adjust a cable of gear shifting and fill in transmission liquid in a transmission.
