Repair procedures

Removal
  
Be careful not to damage the parts located under the vehicle (floor under cover, fuel filter, fuel tank and canister) when raising the vehicle using the lift.
(Refer to General Information - "Lift and Support Points")
1.
After making a match mark on the flange yoke and transaxle companion, remove the propeller shaft mounting bolts (A).
Tightening torque :
53.9 - 68.6 N.m (5.5 - 7.0 kgf.m, 39.8 - 50.6 lb-ft)
  
Use a hexagon socket to prevent damage to the head when removing and installing bolts.
Mark the location and direction of bolt and washer before removing the propeller shaft.
Installing the bolt and washer differently from the initial state can result in unbalanced propeller shaft causing abnormal vibration of propeller shaft at high speed.
If abnormal vibration and noise occur at high vehicle speeds after replacing propeller shaft with a new one, balance the propeller shaft with a balancing machine.
The bolt is a special bolt applied with bond, so do not reuse.

2.
Remove the bracket (A) after loosening the mounting bolts.

3.
Loosen the center bearing bracket mounting bolts (A).
Tightening torque :
53.9 - 68.6 N.m (5.5 - 7.0 kgf.m, 39.8 - 50.6 lb-ft)
  
Mark the location and direction of bolt and washer before removing the propeller shaft.
Installing the bolt and washer differently from the initial state can result in unbalanced propeller shaft causing abnormal vibration of propeller shaft at high speed.

4.
After making a match mark on the constant velocity joint and rear differential companion, remove the propeller shaft mounting bolts (A).
