FRONT DRIVE SHAFT ASSEMBLY(for 2WD) INSTALLATION

PROCEDURE


  1. INSTALL FRONT DRIVE SHAFT HOLE SNAP RING LH


    1. Install a new front drive shaft hole snap ring LH.

      Note


      • Do not damage the spline of the front drive inboard joint assembly LH.

      • Front drive shaft hole snap ring LH should be installed completely.

  2. INSTALL FRONT DRIVE SHAFT ASSEMBLY LH


    1. A01GBLD

      Coat the spline of the front drive inboard joint assembly LH with MP grease.

    2. Set the front drive shaft hole snap ring LH with the opening side facing down.

    3. Align the splines and tap in the front drive shaft assembly LH with a brass bar and hammer.

      Note


      • Using MP grease, set the front drive shaft hole snap ring in the groove with the opening facing downwards and centered radially.

      • Do not damage the oil seal, front axle inboard joint boot and front drive shaft dust cover LH.

      • Make sure to follow the proper handling and installation procedures. If the front drive shaft assembly LH is installed at too large an angle or slides too much, it may fall out of the groove of the tripod joint.

      • Do not tap the end of the front drive outboard joint shaft assembly LH with a hammer, etc.

      Tech Tips

      Determine whether the front drive shaft assembly LH is completely tapped in by checking for changes in the tapping sound or the reaction of the brass bar.
