Removal and generator installation



1. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.
2. Weaken a belt of a drive of auxiliary units (address to Head Routine maintenance) and throw off it from a generator pulley.

3. At the corresponding complete set remove protective rubber caps from generator plugs, then release terminal nuts and disconnect electroconducting from a back part of the generator.

4. Give a bolt/nut of fastening of the generator to the top basic arm. Pay attention that if for fastening of the generator the long through bolt is used, there is no need for its full reversing: will weaken only it enough. On some models for the purpose of ensuring access to fixture of the generator it is necessary to remove an intermediate pulley / a tension roller of a driving belt.

5. On diesel models take clamps of fastening of the filter of a cover and remove the last for the purpose of ensuring access to the top fixing bolt.

6. Remove the generator from basic arms and take it from an impellent compartment.


Installation is made upside-down. Track correctness of laying and adjustment of a tension of a driving belt (address to Head Routine maintenance). Make sure of reliability of a tightening of fixture of the generator and its basic arms.
