      The bolts should be installed from the propeller shaft assembly side.

    8. Temporarily install the 2 bolts and 2 adjusting washers.

      Tech Tips

      Use the adjusting washers which were removed.

  2. FULLY TIGHTEN NO. 1 CENTER SUPPORT BEARING ASSEMBLY


    1. B002EFLC02
      *a 90°

      Adjust the distance (A) between the surface of the No. 1 center support bearing assembly and the surface of the cushion to 11.5 to 13.5 mm (0.453 to 0.531 in.) as shown in illustration.

      Distance (A)
      11.5 to 13.5 mm (0.453 to 0.531 in.)
    2. Check that the center line of the bracket is at a right angle to the shaft axial direction.

    3. Tighten the 2 bolts.

      Torque:
      49.1 N*m  { 501 kgf*cm, 36 ft.*lbf }
    4. B002C9FC01
      *a Hold
      *b Turn
      *c Torque Wrench Fulcrum Length

      Using SST, tighten the adjusting nut.

      SST
      09922-10010
      Torque:
      Specified tightening torque
      69 N*m  { 704 kgf*cm, 51 ft.*lbf }

      Note


      • Make sure to turn SST as shown in the illustration.

      • This torque value is effective when SST is parallel to the torque wrench.

      Tech Tips


      • Calculate the torque wrench reading when changing the fulcrum length of the torque wrench.

      • When using SST (fulcrum length of 123.5 mm (4.86 in.)) + torque wrench (fulcrum length of 345 mm (1.13 ft.)):

        50.81 N*m (518 kgf*cm, 37 ft.*lbf)

  3. INSPECT AND ADJUST NO. 2 AND NO. 3 JOINT ANGLE

    Note

    Measure the joint angle when the vehicle is raised using a four-post lift or when using a pit.

    Tech Tips

    If any vibration or noise occurs, perform the joint angle check as follows and replace the adjusting washers with ones of the correct thickness.


    1. Stabilize the propeller shaft and differential.


      1. Turn the propeller shaft several times by hand to stabilize the center support bearing.

      2. Using a jack, raise and lower the differential to stabilize the differential mounting cushion.

    2. Check the No. 2 and No. 3 joint angles.

      B002C9HC02
      *a No. 2 Joint Angle *b No. 3 Joint Angle

      1. Using SST, measure the installation angle of the propeller intermediate shaft assembly and propeller shaft assembly.

        SST
        09370-50010

        Tech Tips

        SST should be set directly underneath the shaft.

      2. Using SST, measure the installation angle of the differential.

        SST
        09370-50010

        Tech Tips

        Measure the installation angle by placing SST in the positions shown in the illustration.

      3. Calculate the No. 2 joint angle.

        No. 2 Joint Angle
        Measurement Position No. 2 Joint Angle
        A-B -0°19' +/- 30'
      4. Calculate the No. 3 joint angle.

        No. 3 Joint Angle
        Measurement Position No. 3 Joint Angle
        B-C 1°16' +/- 33'

        If the measured angle is not within the specified range, adjust it with adjusting washers.

    3. Adjust the No. 2 joint angle.


      1. Select adjusting washers for adjustment.

        Adjusting Washer
        Part No. Thickness mm (in.)
        90201-10106 2.0 mm (0.0787 in.)
        90201-10008 4.5 mm (0.177 in.)
        90201-10033 6.5 mm (0.256 in.)
        90201-10017 9.0 mm (0.354 in.)
        90201-10034 11.0 mm (0.433 in.)

        Note


        • Make sure to use a washer of the same thickness on both the right and left sides.

        • Do not use 2 or more adjusting washers on each bolt.

  4. INSTALL NO. 1 FUEL TANK PROTECTOR


    1. B002CXPN01

      Install the No. 1 fuel tank protector with the 4 nuts and tighten the nuts in the order shown in the illustration.

      Torque:
      5.0 N*m  { 51 kgf*cm, 44 in.*lbf }
  5. INSTALL FRONT NO. 1 FLOOR HEAT INSULATOR
