9.2. Power shafts

General information

The car is set in motion by means of torque transmission from the transmission to wheels by means of two power shafts. Boots of internal hinges are made of rubber, and external — of thermoplastic (thermoplastic is steadier against external influences). Each shaft consists of three main parts: internal hinge (tripod type), directly shaft and external hinge of equal angular speeds (HEAS). External hinges of both shaft (CV JOINTS) terminate in shlitsevy shaft which enter shlitsevy naves of driving wheels. Shaft are fixed in naves by nuts.
