Removal and installation of the pallet of a case

 REMOVAL

Owing to the limited area for removal of the pallet of a case both support of the engine are necessary to disconnect and to lower a beam of a forward suspension bracket.

1 Remove an airmodular box of a heater, address to the Section Removal and installation of a box of an air inlet.
2 Remove a hose of soaked-up air from an airmodular box, address to the Section Removal and installation of the air filter of the engine.
3 Models 320d: Uncover the engine around the oil filter, address to the Section Connection and separation of the quick disconnect coupling.

Operation of lifting and car installation on supports is connected with danger! Therefore before carrying out operation familiarize with Poddomkrachivaniye's Section and towage

4 Lift and establish the car on supports. Unscrew bolts of fastening and uncover an impellent compartment, address to the Section Removal and installation of the bottom cover of an impellent compartment.
5 Merge impellent oil, address to the Section Replacement of impellent oil and the oil filter.

6 Models 320i, 323i, 328i: Remove a hose oil plum from an oil separator on a directing pipe of the index of level of oil. For this purpose disconnect a fastening collar (the shooter on an illustration).

7 Unscrew directing pipe of the index of level at the holder. Take out directing pipe up from the case pallet. Thus pay attention to a sealing ring.
8 Models 320i, 323i, 328i: Unscrew bolts of fastening of the pump of the power steering and suspend on a wire with the attached hoses to the engine, address to the Section Removal and installation of the pump of the hydraulic booster.

It is necessary to leave hoses attached to the pump, oil will follow otherwise. If the hydrosystem is opened, it is necessary to watch special purity as the dirt which has got to system can lead to refusals.


9 Raise the engine the crane for forward eyes. If the crane available is not present, pass a cable through eyes on the engine. Pass through a cable a pipe of sufficient durability and обоприте it on two supports.

The BMW-00 0 200 adaptation shown on an illustration, leans at the left and on the right on support of wings and fastens there bolts. On sale there is a similar KLANN No. KL-0205-3US adaptation.

10 Raise the engine the crane on 5 mm to unload support.
11 Models 320i, 323i, 328i: Weaken engine support on the right and at the left above approximately on 4 turns.
12 Turn on from the bottom party of the car of a nut from both support of the engine.

13 Disconnect a steering shaft from the steering mechanism and remove the bottom steering column from the kardanny hinge (an arrow on an illustration).

14 Disconnect the stabilizer at the left and to the right of an engine beam.

The following operations are in more detail described in the Section Removal and installation of a beam of a forward suspension bracket.

The steering mechanism to remove from a beam of a forward axis it is not required.
- Remove the amplifier of a forward part of the car.
- Unscrew bolts of fastening and remove left and right cross-section suspension bracket levers.
- Prop up a beam of a forward suspension bracket the garage lift and bring the corresponding support. On an illustration BMW-31 2 220 support is shown. If the specified support available is not present, enclose wooden laying not to damage a beam.
- Unscrew bolts of fastening of a beam and lower it probably below.

15 Rasstykuytes I will corrode the sensor of level of oil.
16 Models 320d: Remove from holders on the case pallet a cable of the sensor of level of oil and the backing switch.
17 If there are AT oil pipelines, remove them at the case pallet from holders.
18 316i, 318i: Unscrew bolts of fastening and remove the holder of fuel pipelines around the case pallet.

19 Unscrew bolts of fastening and remove the case pallet.

On an illustration fastening of the pallet of a case of the engine 316i, 318i to RKPP flange is shown. Turn out bolts on RKPP flange (shooters on an illustration) and on the block of cylinders.

20 Lower the pallet of a case and take out it back.



 INSTALLATION

21 Clear sealing surfaces of the pallet of a case and the block of cylinders.

Sealing laying of the pallet of a case surely replace with the new.

If at 316i, 318i the new pallet of a case is established, it is necessary to rearrange on a new case a maslozabornik and soaking-up pipe, having established thus new consolidation.

The soaking-up pipe has self-cutting bolts of fastening. Therefore the new pallet of a case has no carving for fastening bolts. Bolts cut a carving at a vvinchivaniye.

22 Models 316i, 318i: Put on the case pallet new sealing laying. Fill grooves (arrows on an illustration) in consolidations of the pallet of a case under the connecting planes of the block of cylinders at a cover of cogwheels and a locking cover the hermetic having long elasticity, for example, by "Drei Bond 1209" or “Loctite Ultra Black”.

23 Models 320d, 320i, 323i, 328i: Put on the dividing planes (arrows on illustrations) on a cover of cogwheels and a locking cover the roller of the hermetic having long elasticity, for example, by "Drei Bond 1209" or “to Loctite Ultra Black.” Rollers should have width of 3 mm and height of 2 mm. Paste new sealing laying of a case, using konsistentny greasing. Check correctness of provision of laying.

On an illustration the 6-cylinder petrol engine is shown.

24 Establish the case pallet.
25 Screw bolts of fastening of the pallet of a case, yet without tightening them. Tighten slightly bolts at first at RKPP, then at the engine. Then tighten all bolts the moment of 10 N • m, that is again slightly. If bolts are tightened too strongly, laying can be crushed and lost tightness.
26 Insert directing tube for the index of level of oil, using a new sealing ring. Fix a tube on the holder.
27 Models 320i, 323i, 328i: Fix a collar a hose oil plum from a separator at a directing pipe of the index of level.
28 If there are oil pipelines, fix them in holders at the case pallet.
29 Models 316i, 318i: Fix bolts the holder of fuel pipelines around the case pallet.
30 Models 320d: Fix in holders at the case pallet a cable of the sensor of level of oil and the backing switch.
31 Join and fix the socket of the sensor of level of oil.

The following operations are in more detail described in the Section Removal and installation of a beam of a forward suspension bracket.

- Raise a beam of a forward suspension bracket and fix it bolts, address to the Section Removal and installation of a beam of a forward suspension bracket.

If the steering mechanism did not act in film, carrying out operations on measurement of a forward suspension bracket is not required.

- Fix bolts on an engine beam the left and right levers of a suspension bracket.
- Establish the amplifier of a forward part of the car.

32 Fix at the spherical hinge the lower part of a steering column. A terminal bolt tighten the moment of 20 N • m.
33 Lower the engine, clean the crane. Fix bolts both support of the engine. The moments of an inhaling are given in Specifications.
34 Models 320i, 323i, 328i: Establish the pump of the hydraulic booster, address to the Section Removal and installation of the pump of the hydraulic booster.
35 Fill system with impellent oil, address to the Section Replacement of impellent oil and the oil filter.
36 Establish into place an airmodular box, address to the Section thermoswitch Check.
37 Models 320d: Establish around the oil filter an engine cover, address to the Section Connection and separation of the quick disconnect coupling.
38 Establish a hose of soaking-up air on a box of the air filter of the engine.
39 Lower the car on wheels.
40 Fix stabilizer collars on a beam of a forward suspension bracket the moment of 25 N • m. For this purpose the car should be in normal situation.
41 Pass on the car and check tightness of the pallet of a case. If necessary carefully tighten fastening bolts.
42 Fix bolts the bottom cover of an impellent compartment, address to the Section Removal and installation of the bottom cover of an impellent compartment.
