Toyota RAV4>> Steering and running gear>> Removal and installation of the steering mechanism
       PREVENTION
Cars are equipped with the systems of safety (SRS) including safety cushions and natyazhitel of seat belts. Before work about sensors of blow, the dashboard and a steering column disconnect at first negative, and then positive the plug from the storage battery and wait for 2 minutes. It will exclude unauthorized disclosure of safety cushions and operation of natyazhitel of seat belts which can put injuries.

Removal of the steering mechanism make as follows:
Switch off ignition and disconnect a "weight" wire from the storage battery.
Remove a steering wheel, then turn a key in the ignition lock in the situation LOCK to block a steering shaft from rotation, otherwise the spiral wire of a safety cushion can be damaged.
Tighten the parking brake and block back wheels an emphasis.
Weaken nuts of fastening of a forward wheel. Lift a forward part of the car and establish on support. Remove forward wheels.
Remove the bottom protection of a motor compartment.

Establish under a motor compartment the reception pallet for collecting liquid. Disconnect from the steering mechanism hoses of the amplifier of a steering and close them plastic jams for prevention of an excessive effluence of liquid and hit in system of pollution (fig. 13.13) .

Fig. 13.14. Places of drawing of labels (1) on the hinge of an intermediate shaft and an entrance shaft of the steering mechanism and an arrangement of a coupling bolt (2)


Uncover the bottom universal hinge, note mutual position of the hinge of an intermediate shaft and an entrance shaft of the steering mechanism and turn out the bottom coupling bolt (fig. 13.14) .
Remove tips of steering drafts from rotary fists.
Further removal for models till 2001 of release make as follows:

Fig. 13.10. An arrangement of the nut fixed by a pin, fastenings of a pin of the spherical hinge of a tip of steering bent for to a rotary fist


– turn out bolts and nuts of fastening of spherical hinges to the bottom levers of a forward suspension bracket (see.

Fig. 13.11. Stripper use for expression of a pin of the spherical hinge of a tip of steering draft from a rotary fist

– mount separate spherical hinges from the bottom levers of a forward suspension bracket;
– remove forward section of system of production of the fulfilled gases;

Fig. 13.15. An arrangement of the left bolts of fastening of a cross-section beam on models till 2001


– a jack support a cross-section beam of a forward suspension bracket, turn out bolts of fastening and lower it together with the bottom levers, the steering mechanism and the stabilizer of cross-section stability (fig. 13.15) ;
– when lowering a cross-section beam the shaft of the steering mechanism should leave a nest of the universal hinge of an intermediate shaft.
Further removal for models since 2001 make as follows:

Fig. 13.16. An arrangement of the left bolts of fastening of the steering mechanism on models since 2001


– turn out bolts of fastening of the steering mechanism (fig. 13.16) ;
– separate an intermediate shaft from an entrance shaft of the steering mechanism, then remove the steering mechanism.
Installation of the steering mechanism carry out to sequences, return to removal, taking into account the following:
At connection of an entrance shaft of the steering mechanism with the universal hinge of an intermediate shaft combine the labels put before removal.
Be convinced that forward wheels are established for movement directly, then center a spiral wire of a safety cushion.
Turn the plug of a spiral wire counter-clockwise against the stop, thus do not make big effort as the wire can be broken off.
Turn the plug of a spiral wire clockwise on 2,5 turns and combine adjusting labels.
Establish a steering wheel and a safety cushion.
Fill in liquid in a tank of the amplifier of a steering and remove air from hydraulic system.
