We remove the rear wheel axles to replace or adjust the rear axle gearbox or to remove the rear wheel hubs
Removing the rear wheels
With a "balloon" wrench (head "27") loosen the six wheel nuts.
We raise and hang the rear axle with a jack on one side. Loosen the wheel nuts completely. Under one of the nuts there is a plate for fastening the nipple of the "inner" wheel.
Remove the "outer" wheel
Removing the "inner" wheel
Install the wheels in reverse order, lubricating the studs with graphite grease.
Tightening torque for wheel nuts 30 - 38 kgcm.
You can not put different sizes of rear wheels.
Removing the axle shaft
Using the “19” head, unscrew the eight nuts securing the axle shaft to the rear wheel hub.
Substituting a small container for oil into the wheel, we pull it off the studs with our hands or with a special drift
Remove the half shaft from the bridge
Remove the cardboard spacer from the studs
If there is no drift, and it is not possible to remove the axle shaft with your hands, you can knock it out with a hammer through the beard, having previously removed the outer wheel for convenience.
We install the axle shaft in the reverse order, after which we fill the wheel hub with oil.
