      *a Installing from side
      *b Installing perpendicularly
      *c Do not expand steering rack boot clamp

      for Type A:


      1. Temporarily install a new No. 1 steering rack boot clamp to the larger diameter side of the No. 1 steering rack boot as shown by the arrow (A) in the illustration.

        Note


        • Make sure to use a new No. 1 steering rack boot clamp.

        • Do not excessively expand the diameter of the No. 1 steering rack boot clamp when installing it.

        • Do not deform the No. 1 steering rack boot clamp.

        • If the diameter of the No. 1 steering rack boot clamp is expanded and then installed as shown in the illustration, the tightening torque will become uneven. As a result, rust may form due to water or other foreign matter entering between the boot and rack housing, causing a malfunction to occur.

        • Do not secure the boot with any objects other than the supply parts appropriate for the vehicle.

        Tech Tips
