Toyota RAV4>> Maintenance>> Check of protective covers of power shafts
       NOTE
The recommended frequency: each 24 000 km of a run or 12 months.

Protective covers of hinges of equal angular speeds (CV JOINTS) carry out very important role, preventing hit of water and dirt in CV JOINTS. Hit on a protective cover of fuel or lubricant can lead to its destruction therefore it is recommended to wash out them water with soap.

Fig. 2.26. Survey of a protective cover of the hinge of equal angular speeds of a power shaft


Lift the car on the elevator, having hung out forward wheels. Turn a steering wheel to the right or to the left against the stop and turn a wheel. Examine rubber protective covers of hinges of equal angular speeds, squeezing them for disclosure of bends (fig. 2.26) . Check them for existence of cracks which can lead to leak of lubricant and hit in water and dirt. Check a condition of collars of fastening, examine covers of internal hinges and casings on the other hand. Immediately replace the damaged protective cover.
Check a condition of hinges of equal angular speeds: having recorded a power shaft, try to turn a wheel. Repeat attempt, holding the internal hinge of equal angular speeds and turning a power shaft. Any noticeable side play indicates wear of the hinge, wear in grooves of a shaft or unscrewing of a lock nut of a shaft.
