6. INSPECT DRIVE PINION PRELOAD

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

Preload (at starting): 0.8 - 1.1 N*m(8 - 11 kgf*cm, 7.0 - 9.7 in.*lbf)

7. INSPECT TOTAL PRELOAD

a. 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 0.4 - 0.6 N*m(4 - 6 kgf*cm, 3.5 - 5.2 in.*lbf)
