We remove the gearbox to replace the clutch, flywheel, rear crankshaft oil seal. In addition, we remove the box in the event of the following malfunctions:
- increased noise;
- Difficult gear shifting;
- spontaneous switching off or fuzzy switching on of gears;
- oil leakage through seals and gaskets.
Before removing the gearbox, you need to make sure that the malfunction is caused by other reasons (insufficient oil level, defects in the clutch release drive, loosening of the gearbox, etc.).
To dismantle the gearbox, you will need tools: socket heads for 10, 13, 16, a flat-blade screwdriver.

We remove the gearbox from the engine, removing the input shaft from the hub of the clutch disc, and remove the gearbox.
When installing the gearbox on the engine, you need to direct the input shaft so that the splines of the shaft mesh with the splines of the clutch disc.
Before installation, grease the splines of the input shaft with graphite grease.
We turn the gearbox so that the clutch housing stud and the engine block stud enter the corresponding holes in the crankcase and block.
After that, we send the gearbox along the landing bushings to the stop in the engine block.
After making sure that the gearbox is installed correctly, we tighten the bolts and nuts that secure the gearbox.
When installing the exhaust manifold mounting bracket, first we attach two bolts securing the bracket to the gearbox housing and two bolts to the exhaust manifold.
After the bolts have been loosened, it is necessary to check that the bracket is in a loose state.
After that, you can gradually, step by step, alternately tighten the mounting bolts, while checking that there is no distortion of the bracket.
We carry out further assembly operations in reverse order.
Fill the gearbox with oil.
