Toyota RAV4>> Steering and running gear>> Removal and installation of the steering mechanism
       PREVENTION
Cars are equipped with security systems (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 plugs from the rechargeable battery and wait 2 min. It will exclude unauthorized disclosure of safety cushions and operation of natyazhitel of seat belts which can put injuries.

You make removal of the steering mechanism as follows:
Switch off ignition and disconnect a wire of "weight" from the rechargeable battery.
Remove a steering wheel, then turn a key in the ignition lock in position of 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 lower protection of a motor compartment.

Fig. 13.13. Places of connection of hoses of the amplifier of steering to the steering mechanism


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

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


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

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


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

Fig. 13.11. Use of a stripper 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 lower 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 beam on models till 2001


– support by a jack a cross beam of a forward suspension bracket, turn out bolts of fastening and lower it together with the lower levers, the steering mechanism and the stabilizer of cross stability ( fig. 13.15 );
– when lowering a cross beam the shaft of the steering mechanism has to leave a nest of the universal hinge of an intermediate shaft.
Since 2001 you make further removal for models 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.
You carry out installation of the steering mechanism to the sequences, the 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 tags put before removal.
Make sure that forward wheels are established for the movement directly, then center a spiral wire of a safety cushion.
Turn the plug of a spiral wire counterclockwise against the stop, at the same time 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 tags.
Establish a steering wheel and a safety cushion.
Fill in liquid in a tank of the amplifier of steering and remove air from hydraulic system.
