Toyota RAV4>> Steering and running gear>> General information
Steering consists of a steering wheel, a steering column, the mechanism of steering and cross steering drafts.
The steering wheel fixed on a steering column transfers effort to tooth rack gearing.
The gear lath of the steering mechanism from each party is connected to cross steering draft by means of the spherical hinge. Steering drafts transmit force through steering rod ends and rotary fists on forward wheels. Rack steering possesses the easy course and has no side play at rotation of a steering wheel from an emphasis against the stop. 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 steering. It consists of the oil pump, a broad tank and oil pipelines. The pump put in action from the engine through poliklinovy a belt gives oil from a tank under pressure to the valve located in the steering mechanism. The valve is mechanically connected to a steering shaft and gives 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 the 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 the standard equipment on all models. The security system is put in action at inclusion of ignition and becomes more active the delay sensor which is switched on in the control unit. With malfunction in system of a safety cushion 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 steering. At installation use only new самоконтрящиеся nuts.

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