Check of thickness of a conducted disk of coupling

Necessary tool:
BMW calibre.

Necessary wearing-out elements:
Only if check concerns worn-out coupling: A conducted disk of coupling.

Coupling being self-established also does not demand service. Therefore it is impossible to determine wear of coupling by 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 coupling it is possible as follows: Include the 5th transfer, start the engine at the pressed pedal of coupling. Include coupling and give gas. If the engine not глохнет, coupling worn-out. The specified check should not be carried out often since it is accompanied by big load of coupling.

According to the Maintenance plan check of thickness of coupling is carried out each 80 000 km.


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

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

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

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