Removal and installation of a radiator of system of cooling

Do not start performance of procedures before full cooling of the engine.

Removal

Models without ГУР and К/В

On cars with АТ маслоохладитель it is built in a contour of system of cooling of the engine. For removal press oil hoses about a radiator. Unions and branch pipes close stoppers to exclude вытекание oils. After radiator installation fill transmission by oil (see the Head of Adjustment and car routine maintenance).


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Merge cooling liquid in pure capacity, having disconnected the bottom hose from a radiator.
  2. On petrol engines remove an air inlet sleeve.
  3. On engines X14XE and X16XE remove the pump of additional air.
  4. On the diesel engine remove the fan e/motor together with a fan cover.
  5. Separate a socket of electroconducting of the e/motor of the fan (1) and a thermoswitch (2).

Sockets of conducting of the e/motor of the fan (1) and Д/В temperatures (2)

  1. Disconnect the top hose of a radiator and the connecting hose going to a broad tank.

Hoses ОЖ

  1. Turn out bolts of fastening and disconnect a radiator arm.

Bolts of fastening of an arm of a radiator

  1. Remove a radiator together with the fan upwards from the bottom rubber support.
  2. If the radiator is replaced, rearrange the fan and a thermoswitch on a new radiator.

Features for cars with ГУР and К/В

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Disconnect electroconducting from the second thermoswitch on a radiator.
  2. Remove both thermoswitches from a radiator.
  3. Take aside the tank of liquid ГУР with the attached hoses.

On engines DOHC of 1.4 and 1.6 l cautiously disconnect from pump GUR a high pressure line so that it could move a little. To release a place, incline a high pressure line in a direction to the engine.

  1. Give bolts of fastening and disconnect the fan case.

Check

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. After removal from the car the radiator can be checked up on presence of signs of leaks, damages and infringements of internal passableness of the heat exchanger.
  2. Remains of insects and vegetation can be removed from space between plates of the heat exchanger by blowing by the compressed air (do not forget to put on goggles!), or вычищения a soft brush. Try not to bend thin plates of the heat exchanger and not to cut about them fingers. Before installation the radiator should be washed out by giving in water from a garden hose (see the Head of Adjustment and car routine maintenance).
  3. Check up a condition of rubber support of a radiator, in case of need make replacement of the failed components.
  4. Sources of small leaks can be closed up by means of suitable hermetic (operate according to instructions of manufacturers of means). Any more difficult repair should be made only in the conditions of a specialised workshop with application of the necessary equipment.

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Installation is made in an order, the return to an order of dismantle of components. Pay attention to following moments:
    1. Track correctness of installation of rubber pillows of the bottom support of a radiator;
    2. Track correctness of connection and reliability of fixing by fixing collars of all hoses;
    3. In end make refuelling cooling system (see the Head of Adjustment and car routine maintenance) and survey of its components on presence of signs of development of leaks.
