The operations are expected to speak of general mechanical maintenance performed on all the bells. Specifically, it proceeded to a general control and calibration of the bells supporting hardware stores, the bolts, chains with its degreasing and control of counterweights.

The clappers of two bells (III and V) were completely replaced as they did not show the most suitable mechanical operating characteristics, as well as the insulator of the bell III.

As regards the electrical part of automation of bells it had to proceed with the complete revision of all the motors.
