*c

8.5 Nm

*d

No clearance

(b) Check the front speed sensor LH installation.

OK:

There is no clearance between the front speed sensor LH and front axle carrier sub-assembly.

The installation bolt is tightened properly.

REINSTALL OR REPLACE FRONT SPEED SENSOR LH

OK

2.

CHECK FRONT SPEED SENSOR LH (CHECK FOR FOREIGN MATTER)

(a) Remove the front speed sensor LH.

Click here

(b) Check the front speed sensor LH tip.

OK:

The front speed sensor LH tip is free of scratches, oil, and foreign matter.

NOTICE:

  • If there is oil or foreign matter on the front speed sensor LH, clean the front speed sensor LH.
  • If the front speed sensor LH is damaged, replace the front speed sensor LH with a new one.

(d) Start the engine.

(e) Perform a road test.

(f) Check the speed value output from the speed sensor displayed on the Techstream.

HINT:

Factors that affect the indicated vehicle speed include tire size, tire pressure, and tire wear. The speed indicated on the speedometer has an allowable margin of error. This can be tested using a speedometer tester (calibrated chassis dynamometer). For details about testing and the margin of error, see the reference chart.

OK:

The speed value output from the speed sensor displayed on the Techstream is similar to the speed indicated on the speedometer.
