Check of a thickness of a conducted disk of coupling

The necessary tool:
Calibre BMW.

Necessary wearing out elements:
Only if check concerns the worn out coupling: the Conducted disk of coupling.

Coupling self-established also does not demand service. Therefore deterioration of coupling cannot be defined on a pedal course. The thickness of a disk of coupling is measured by special control calibre. Thus it is not necessary to remove a disk.

If the specified calibre is not present, to check up coupling it is possible as follows: Include 5th transfer, start the engine at the pressed pedal of coupling. Include coupling and give gas. If the engine not глохнет, coupling is worn out. The specified check should not be spent often, since. It is accompanied by the big loading on coupling.

According to the plan of Maintenance service check of a thickness of coupling is spent each 80 000 km.


1. Lift and establish the car on supports. Remove the bottom guard of an impellent compartment, address to Section Removal and installation of the bottom guard of an impellent compartment.

2. Remove the working cylinder at a check point. For this purpose turn away two bolts of fastening (the marksman on an accompanying illustration). A hydrowire do not disconnect.

3. Insert into an aperture of the working cylinder calibre BMW and press in an arrow direction (a white arrow), address a covering note to an illustration.

4. Consider the scale indication (a black arrow) on the party, having an inscription “B+C”. It is necessary to replace a frictional overlay, if the red zone is visible.
