PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Check a condition of driving belts on all their length. Also check pulleys for existence of notches, cracks, deformation and corrosion.
2. Remove a casing of the air filter.

3. Weaken a bolt of a pulley of the mechanism of a tension and weaken a belt tension, rotating a regulator bolt. Take off a belt from pulleys.
4. Establish a new belt on pulleys. Carry out a tension of a belt, using a regulator bolt. At the same time the belt deflection from pressing by a hand thumb on long branches of a belt has to make about 10 mm.
5. Tighten the required moment a bolt of fastening of a pulley of the mechanism of a tension and establish a casing of the air filter.

6. On models with air conditioning remove a driving compressor belt.
7. Weaken bolts of fastening of the pump, weaken a belt and remove it from pulleys.
8. Establish a new belt on pulleys. Carry out a tension of a belt movement of the pump. At the same time the belt deflection when pressing by a hand thumb on a long branch of a belt has to make 10 mm.
9. Establish a driving compressor belt of air conditioning and a casing of the air filter.
