Assembly overview - pistons and conrods  
1 - Bolts  
❑ Renew after removal  
❑ Apply engine oil to  
thread and contact sur‐  
face  
❑ Use old bolts to meas‐  
ure radial clearance.  
❑ 45 Nm +90°  
2 - Conrod bearing cap  
❑ Observe installation po‐  
sition  
❑ Conrod bearing cap on‐  
ly fits in one position and  
only on the appropriate  
conrod due to the break‐  
ing procedure (crack‐  
ing) separating the cap  
from the conrod  
❑ Mark allocation to cylin‐  
der and conrod in colour  
-A-  
❑ Installation position:  
Marking -B- faces to‐  
wards pulley end.  
❑ Separating new conrod  
⇒ page 86 .  
3 - Bearing bushes  
❑ Fitting position  
⇒ page 81  
❑ Renew worn bearing  
shells  
❑ Apply engine oil before  
installing  
❑ Axial clearance  
♦ New: 0.10 … 0.35 mm  
♦ Wear limit: 0.40 mm  
❑ Measuring radial clearance ⇒ page 87  
4 - Connecting rod  
❑ Renew as set only.  
❑ Mark allocation to cylinder and to conrod bearing cap  
❑ Installation position: Marking -B- faces towards pulley end.  
❑ Separating new conrod ⇒ page 86 .  
❑ Measuring radial clearance ⇒ page 87

5 - Pressure relief valve  
❑ 27 Nm  
6 - Oil spray jet  
❑ For piston cooling  
7 - Retaining ring  
❑ Renew after removal  
8 - Piston pin  
❑ Apply engine oil before installing  
9 - Piston  
❑ Installing with piston installation sleeve -T40347- ⇒ page 83  
❑ Installation position: arrow on piston crown faces towards pulley end  
❑ Mark allocation to cylinder  
❑ Checking piston and cylinder bore ⇒ page 84  
10 - Compression rings  
❑ Offset gaps by 120°  
❑ Installation position: “TOP” or “R” marking must face upwards towards piston crown.

⇒ Fig. ““Checking piston ring gap”“ , page 85  
⇒ Fig. ““Checking ring-to-groove clearance”“ , page 85  
⇒ Fig. ““Allocation of piston rings only in connection with 3-part oil scraper ring”“ , page 82  
11 - Oil scraper ring  
❑ 2-part or 3-part, depending on version  
❑ Install in such a way that upper gap of three-part oil scraper ring is offset by 120° relative to adjacent  
compression ring

Bearing shells - installation position  
– Position bearing shells in centre of conrod and conrod bearing  
cap when fitting.  
Distance -a- must be identical on both sides.
