Toyota RAV4>> Steering and running gear>> General information
The steering consists of a steering wheel, a steering column, the mechanism of a steering and cross-section steering drafts.
The steering wheel fixed on a steering column, transfers effort to tooth reechny gearing.
The gear lath of the steering mechanism from each party is connected to cross-section steering draft means of the spherical hinge. Steering drafts transfer force through steering tips and rotary fists to forward wheels. Reechnoye a steering possesses an easy course and has no люфта at rotation of a steering wheel from an emphasis against the stop. The steering practically does not demand service, however it is necessary to check constantly a condition of protective covers of spherical hinges.
For simplification of turn of a steering wheel establish the hydraulic amplifier of a steering. It consists of the oil pump, a broad tank and oil pipelines. The pump put in action from the engine through poliklinovy belt, submits oil from a tank under pressure to the valve located in the steering mechanism. The valve is mechanically connected to steering shaft and submits oil depending on the direction of rotation of a steering wheel to the relevant party of the working cylinder. Oil presses on the piston of a gear lath and at the expense of it supports movement of a steering wheel. At the same time the piston pushes out oil on the other side of the working cylinder via the returnable pipeline back in a broad tank.
In the central part of a steering wheel the safety cushion for the driver is established. The safety cushion from the driver enters into the standard equipment on all models. The system of safety is put in action at inclusion of ignition and becomes more active the sensor of the delay which has been switched on in the control unit. In the presence of malfunction in safety cushion system in a combination of devices the control lamp lights up.

It is strictly forbidden to carry out welding and leveling works on details of system of a steering. At installation use only new самоконтрящиеся nuts.

On the car equipped with a safety cushion, at performance of any works on its repair, during the moving and storage observe the following security measures:
— do not disconnect the storage battery at the working engine;
— do not disconnect the plug of the storage battery when in salon of the car there are people;
— at performance of any works on system of safety or carrying out electric welding on the car deactivate safety system;
— if the control lamp of the alarm system of system of safety burns, immediately address on service station;
— transport a safety cushion separately, a bag up;
— at transportation do not put a hand on a safety cushion;
— do not throw a safety cushion;
— do not assort a safety cushion;
— exclude hit on a safety cushion of solvents or clearing substances;
— do not subject a safety cushion to temperature influence over 80 °C;
— do not allow contact of a safety cushion to an open flame;
— do not establish on the car a safety cushion with defects or damages.
