1. SET DIFFERENTIAL CARRIER TO OVERHAUL STAND, ETC.

2. CHECK RUNOUT OF COMPANION FLANGE

Using a dial indicator, measure the vertical and lateral runout of

Using a dial indicator, measure the vertical and lateral runout of the companion flange.

Maximum runout: 0.10 mm (0.0039 in.)

If the runout is greater then the maximum, replace the companion flange.

3. CHECK RING GEAR RUNOUT

Using a dial indicator, measure the ring gear runout.

Using a dial indicator, measure the ring gear runout.

Maximum runout: 0.05 mm (0.0020 in.)

If the runout is greater than the maximum, replace the ring gear.

4. CHECK RING GEAR BACKLASH

Using a dial indicator, while holding the drive pinion flange,

Using a dial indicator, while holding the drive pinion flange, measure the ring gear backlash.

Backlash: 0.13 - 0.18 mm (0.0051 - 0.0071 in.)

HINT: Perform the measurements at 3 or more positions around the circumference of the ring gear.

If the backlash is not within the specified value, adjust the side bearing preload or repair as necessary.

5. MEASURE DRIVE PINION PRELOAD

Using a torque wrench, measure the drive pinion preload using

Using a torque wrench, measure the drive pinion preload using the backlash of the drive pinion and ring gear.

Preload (at starting): 0.64 - 0.92 N·m (6.5 - 9.4 kgf·cm, 5.7 - 8.1 in.·lbf)

6. CHECK TOTAL PRELOAD

Using a torque wrench, measure the total preload with the teeth of the drive pinion and ring gear in contact.

Total preload (at starting): Drive pinion preload plus 0.38 - 0.63 N·m (3.9 - 6.5 kgf·cm, 3.3 - 5.6 in.·lbf)

If necessary, disassemble and inspect the differential.

7. CHECK TOOTH CONTACT BETWEEN RING GEAR AND DRIVE PINION (SA-150 )

11. REMOVE DIFFERENTIAL CASE

(a) Place matchmarks on the bearing cap and differential carrier.

(a) Place matchmarks on the bearing cap and differential carrier.

(b) Remove the 2 bolts and adjusting nut locks.

(c) Remove the 4 bolts, 2 bearing caps and adjusting nuts.

HINT: Tag the disassembled parts to show the location for reassembling.

(d) Remove the differential case with the bearing outer races.

HINT: Tag the disassembled parts to show the location for reassembling.

12. REMOVE DRIVE PINION AND BEARING SPACER

(a) Remove the drive pinion with the rear bearing.

(b) Remove the bearing spacer.

13. REMOVE DRIVE PINION REAR BEARING

(a) Using SST and a press, remove the rear bearing from the

(a) Using SST and a press, remove the rear bearing from the drive pinion.

SST 09950-00020

HINT: If the drive pinion or ring gear is damaged, replace them as a set.

(b) Remove the plate washer from the drive pinion.

14. REMOVE FRONT AND REAR BEARING OUTER RACES

Using a brass bar and hammer, remove the outer races.

Using a brass bar and hammer, remove the outer races.

15. REMOVE RING GEAR

(a) Place matchmarks on the ring gear and differential case.

(a) Place matchmarks on the ring gear and differential case.

(b) Remove the 12 ring gear set bolts.

(c) Using a plastic hammer, tap on the ring gear to remove it from the differential case.

16. CHECK DIFFERENTIAL CASE RUNOUT

(a) Place the bearing outer races on their respective bearings.

Check that the right and left outer races are not interchanged.

(b) Install the differential case in the differential carrier.

(c) Tighten the adjusting nut just to where there is no play in the bearing.

(d) Align the matchmarks on the bearing cap and differential carrier.

(e) Install and uniformly tighten the bearing cap bolts a little at a time.

(f) Using a dial indicator, measure the differential case runout.

(f) Using a dial indicator, measure the differential case runout.

Maximum runout: 0.04 mm (0.0016 in.)

(g) Remove the differential case.

17. REMOVE SIDE BEARINGS FROM DIFFERENTIAL CASE

Using SST, remove the 2 side bearings from the differential

Using SST, remove the 2 side bearings from the differential case.

SST 09950-00020, 09950-00030, 09950-4001 1 (09957-04010), 09950-60010 (09951-00480)
