We prepare the car for work.
Visually check the condition of the generator drive belt.
If cracks, signs of wear and other damage are found on it, replace the belt.
The belt tension is determined by its length, so there is no tensioner.
Accordingly, when operating the car, tension adjustment is not required.
If, due to wear or oiling, the belt begins to slip on the pulleys (this causes a whistling sound), it must be replaced.
To perform the work, you need a special tool for installing the belt 67.7834-9703.
As a last resort, the belt can be carefully installed without a tool, being careful not to damage it.
Marking of generator drive belt 6 RK 823 (six-V-ribbed, length 823 mm)
To replace the belt, use a knife to cut the old belt and remove it
Using a 13mm socket, unscrew the lower mounting bolt of the generator several turns (shown on the removed engine)
Use a 13-mm socket to unscrew the nut
Remove the bolt of the upper mounting of the generator
Turn the generator.
In this case, the upper eye of the generator mounting should go beyond the protrusion on the bracket
And pressing the generator to the bracket, we tie the generator to the nut securing the cylinder block cover
We put the belt on the generator pulley 2 and the upper part of the generator drive pulley 1
We engage fifth gear in the gearbox and, pressing the belt against the generator drive pulley, push the car back until the belt fits onto the pulley.
After this, we untie the wire that tied the generator
Use a screwdriver or mounting spatula to press the generator away from the bracket and insert the upper bolt of the generator
Wrap and tighten the lower bolt and nut of the upper generator mounting bolt
If it is necessary to remove the belt without damaging it, we also push the car back, engaging the fifth gear of the gearbox and pressing the generator to the bracket
Using a screwdriver, pressing the belt against the outer edge of the generator drive pulley until the belt comes off the pulley.
As operating experience has shown This method, namely without the presence of a tensioning device, did not justify itself.
And therefore we have to install a bracket and a tensioning device from a Lada Kalina car.
For installation, we buy a bracket with a tensioning device from a Lada Kalina car.
Installing the bracket
We put the belt on the crankshaft pulley and on the generator pulley
To tension the belt, put an 8-point spanner on the hexagon of the tensioner adjusting pin.
Hold the pin and use a 19mm wrench to loosen the locknut.
Use a 8mm head to rotate the adjusting pin counterclockwise. In this case, the tension roller will press harder on the upper branch of the belt, tightening it
After tensioning the belt, tighten the lock nut of the stud
With a pressing force of 10 kgf, the belt deflection should be 10 mm
Marking of the generator drive belt 6K 882 (the belt profile has six V-protrusions, circumference 882 mm).
You need to remember that after installing a new belt after a short period of use, you need to tighten the belt.
