5. Remove a rubber cover and through an opening in a case of coupling take a coupling switching off fork.


1. Holding the bearing for an external holder, pressing, turn an internal holder of the bearing. If the bearing rotates with noise and unevenly, replace the release bearing.
2. Wipe the bearing with pure rags and check its state for existence of damages, wear and a crack. Do not wash out the bearing in solvent as it is the bearing of the closed type.


1. Apply high-temperature lubricant on a coupling switching off cylinder pusher head.
2. Apply high-temperature lubricant on the directing plug of the release bearing.
3. Apply high-temperature lubricant on working surfaces of a fork of switching off of coupling.
4. Apply high-temperature lubricant on a spherical nest of a fork of switching off of coupling.
5. Installation is made in the sequence, the return to removal.
