STEERING ACTUATOR INSTALLATION

Tech Tips


  • Use the same procedure for RHD and LHD vehicles.

  • The procedure listed below is for LHD vehicles.


  1. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS FOR STEERING ACTUATOR ASSEMBLY


    • Make sure that the No. 2 seal lip and boot do not turn outward while carrying or installing the steering actuator assembly. If installing a new steering actuator assembly, make sure that the spiral center lock pin is securely inserted.

    • Do not use the steering actuator assembly if it has been dropped.

        *2 Paint

        If installing a new steering actuator assembly:

        Install a new steering actuator assembly with the white paint on the surface of the spiral case facing downward.

        Note

        Do not pull out the center lock pin.

        *2 Alignment Mark
        *3 Sliding Yoke
        *4 Paint

        If reinstalling the removed steering actuator assembly:


        1. Slowly turn the spiral case clockwise until it locks.

        2. Turn the spiral case two turns counterclockwise from the locked position.

        3. Align the slit of the sliding yoke with the alignment mark (▲).

        4. Install the steering actuator assembly with the white paint on the surface of the spiral case facing downward.

        5. Align the matchmarks on the steering actuator assembly and the column hole shield.

        Note

        Do not turn the actuator body or spiral case.

    3. Attach the clamp to the steering column hole shield.

      Connect the steering actuator connector.

      Tech Tips

      Push up the lever until the claw of the steering actuator connector makes a connection sound.

    5. Attach the wire harness clamp.

  3. INSTALL STEERING SLIDING WITH SHAFT YOKE SUB-ASSEMBLY


    1. Align the matchmarks and correct the steering sliding with shaft yoke sub-assembly to the power steering gear assembly.

    2. Install the 2 bolts.

      Torque:
      35 N*m  { 360 kgf*cm, 26 ft.*lbf }
  4. INSTALL MAIN SHAFT LOWER DUST COVER


    1. Install the dust cover with the 2 bolts.

      Torque:
      7.5 N*m  { 76 kgf*cm, 66 in.*lbf }
