Rear differential carrier reassembly
1.
Using the SST (09530-3T100), install the inner pinion bearing outer race (A).

2.
Using the SST (09530-3T100), install the outer pinion bearing outer race.

3.
Using the round pipe (A), press in the pinion rear bearing (B).

4.
Install the pinion bearing spacer (B) on the pinion drive gear (A).
  
Х
Must be use new spacer.

5.
Using the round pipe (A), press the front bearing (B).

6.
Using the SST (09530-3T600), install the pinion oil seal.

7.
Using the SST(09530-3T300), install the pinion lock nut (A).

Tightening torque : 186.33~441.3Nm (19.0~45.0kgf.m, 137.43~325.48lb-ft)

  
Х
Must be use new lock nut.
8.
tighten the lock nut.

Standard (pinion bearing preload) :
92.22~179.46Nm (9.2~18.3kgf.m, 66.54~132.36lb-ft)

  
Х
Maintain the constant speed rotation (60rpm).

Gear carrier assembly reassembly
1.
Using the SST (09453-3B200), install the front/rear bearing (A).

2.
Install the gear carrier and ring gear.

Tightening torque :
137.3~156.9Nm (14.0~16.0kgf.m, 101.3~115.7lb-ft)

  
Х
When tightening the seal bolt, please do it diagonal.

3.
Install the left and right side bearing outer race (A) to the gear carrier.

4.
Fix the left and right side bearing outer race (A) with both hands and install it on the differential case.

5.
Insert the left and right adjustment spacer between the differential side bearing and carrier. And than install the bearing cap (A) with mark.

Tightening torque :
53.9~63.7Nm (5.5~6.5kgf.m, 39.8~47.0lb-ft)

6.
Adjust the differential shim and confirm the standard of the backlash.

standard : 0.10 ~ 0.15 mm ( 0.004~0.006 inch)

  
Х
Thickness of the differential shim needs to be adjusted if backlash is small.
Х
Reduce the thickness of the left side differential shim and enlarge the thickness of the right side differential shim as much as the reduced left side.
7.
Adjust gear assembly run out backlash.

Standard : 0~0.05mm(0~0.002inch)

8.
Measures the preload.

Standard
Pinion bearing preload : 0.25~0.84Nm (2.5 ~ 8.5 Kgf.cm, 0.18~0.62 lb-ft)

9.
