- remove a basic coupler of an intermediate shaft — the coupler is applied only once;
- take out an intermediate shaft together with drive shaft from a transmission, thus do not bend the internal hinge more, than on 18 °;
- close the formed opening in a transmission a pure rag against leakage of oil;
