Steering Wheel and Column:  6B-5

Steering Column Assembly Removal and 
Installation

S5JB0B6206006

CAUTION

!

 

Once the steering column assembly is 
removed from the vehicle, the column is 
extremely susceptible to damage.
Dropping the column assembly on its end 
could collapse the steering shaft or loosen 
the plastic shear pins which maintain column 
length leaning on the column assembly could 
cause it to bend or deform.
Any of the above damage could impair the 
column’s collapsible design.
When loosening steering column mounting 
bolts and nuts, make sure that steering 
column assembly and steering upper shaft 
assembly have been separated. Loosening 
them with steering column assembly and 
steering upper shaft assembly assembled 
could cause damage to upper joint and 
mounting bracket in steering upper shaft 
assembly.

6B-6 Steering Wheel and Column: 

11) Remove column support bracket. (if equipped)

12) Remove steering column assembly (1) mounting 

bolts (2) and nuts (3).

NOTE
Do not move tilt lever before till mounting

13) Remove steering column assembly from vehicle.

Installation

CAUTION

!

 

After tightening steering column assembly 
mounting bolts and nuts, steering shaft joint 
bolts should be tightened.

 

1) Be sure that front wheels and steering wheel are in 

straight-ahead position.

2) Align flat part “A” of steering upper shaft upper joint 

(1) with bolt hole “B” of steering column assembly (2) 
as shown in the figure. Then connect steering upper 
shaft upper joint.

3) Install steering column assembly (1) with contacting 

upper side of lower bracket slits to mounting bolts. 
Tighten steering column lower mounting nuts (3) first 
and then upper mounting bolts (2) to specified 
torque.

Tightening torque
Steering column assembly mounting bolt and 
nut (a):  25 N·m (2.5 kgf-m, 18.0 lb-ft)

4) Install column support bracket. (if equipped)
5) Install new steering upper shaft upper joint bolt (2) 

and nut (1). Tighten new steering upper shaft upper 
joint nut (1) to specified torque.

NOTE
Do not reuse steering upper shaft upper joint 
bolt and nut.
Be sure to use new bolt and nut when 
installing.

 

Tightening torque
Steering upper shaft assembly upper joint nut 
(a):  23 N·m (2.3 kgf-m, 17.0 lb-ft)

6) For A/T vehicle, connect shift (key) interlock cable 

(1) to ignition switch with ignition switch turned at 
ACC position.
And then turn ignition switch LOCK position.

Power Assisted Steering System

General Description

P/S System Construction

S5JB0B6301001

The power steering (P/S) system in this vehicle reduces the driver’s effort needed in turning the steering wheel by 
utilizing the hydraulic pressure generated by the power steering (P/S) pump (2) which is driven by the engine.
It is an integral type with the rack and pinion gears and the control valve unit, hydraulic pressure cylinder unit all built in 
the steering gear case (1).

Steering Gear Case Construction

S5JB0B6301002

The steering gear case consists of two sections: one 
including a cylinder and the other a valve. Main 
components of the cylinder section are a gear case (7), a 
rack (8) and a tube and those of the valve section are a 
valve case (10), a sleeve (4) and a stub shaft (2). The 
sleeve is linked with the pinion (6) through a pin (1) and 
the valve and stub shaft are integrated into one unit. 
Then the pinion and the stub shaft are linked to each 
other by means of the torsion bar (3).
Thus, when the stub shaft moves, the valve changes its 
position, thereby switching the hydraulic passage from 
the pump to the cylinder to help steering operation.
When turning the steering wheel feels heavy due to P/S 
fluid leakage or for some other reason (i.e., when in the 
manual steering mode), the stub shaft and pinion are in 
direct linkage and the force is output directly through the 
pinion and rack.
