(b) Apply matchmarks at the pinching portions of the rear propeller shaft boot clamps of the propeller shaft and sleeve yoke.

HINT:

  • Make sure to place matchmarks to clearly identify the location of the pinching portions of the propeller shaft boot clamps.

    If the pinching portions are installed at different locations than where they were located before disassembly, the rotational balance of the propeller shaft cannot be ensured, which may result in vibrations and noise.

  • Make sure that the matchmarks are different enough so that they cannot be confused with each other.
  • The locations of the pinching portions may differ from those shown in the illustration, so make sure to confirm and properly place matchmarks in each vehicle.

(c) Using a side cutter or pliers, disconnect the 2 rear propeller shaft boot clamps.

(d) Disconnect the 2 rear propeller shaft boot clamps from the sleeve yoke.

(e) Remove the sleeve yoke, and then remove the rear sliding shaft boot and 2 rear propeller shaft boot clamps from the propeller shaft.

2. INSPECT PROPELLER SHAFT UNIVERSAL JOINT SPIDER BEARING

(a) Check the spider bearings for wear and damage.

(b) Check each spider bearing's axial play by turning the yoke while holding the shaft tightly.

Maximum bearing axial play:

0 to 0.05 mm (0 to 0.00197 in.)

If the bearing axial play is greater than the maximum, replace the spider bearing.

3. REMOVE PROPELLER SHAFT UNIVERSAL JOINT SPIDER BEARING

(a) Place matchmarks on the propeller shaft and universal joint yoke.
