On models till 2001 check a condition of the spherical hinge of the top cross-section lever for what fix the lever in a vice. Reject against the stop in one and other party a pin of the spherical hinge, then screw a nut on a pin. A Dinamometrichesky key turn a pin of the spherical hinge (one turn for 2–4 c), and on the fifth turn measure a torque of a provorachivaniye which m should be not less than 0,7 N •. Otherwise replace the top cross-section lever.
Installation make in sequence, return to removal.
