About Axle Assemblys
The Toyota axle assembly is used in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. It connects on one side to the transmission and to the wheels via the CV joint. Its job is to transfer torque from the transmission to the wheels and connects the two front wheels of the vehicle, allowing them to move and rotate freely. Sometimes the Toyota axle assembly also allows the wheels to move independently of each other. As a bare minimum a basic Toyota axle assembly will comprise of an axle, axle housing and bearings. Some however, are more complex and include the suspension and steering systems.
Damage to the Toyota axle assembly tends to be more common in off-road vehicles and may be indicated by a grinding noise when changing gears. It’s also worth noting that the Toyota axle assembly can be damaged if its connecting CV joint is worn. To keep the joint in good condition, it’s important to ensure that the protective rubber CV boot isn’t damaged. This contains grease which lubricates the CV joint. If it becomes damaged, this grease can become contaminated with grit and cause friction to the joint.
- The first car company to produce over 10 million cars in a single year (which they did in 2013), Toyota also boasts the record-breaking sales of one Corolla sold every 37 seconds (every 27 seconds in 2013). That made the Corolla the best selling car of all time!
- Incredibly, there are more Toyota made cars on the world's roads than any other vehicle. It's not just high sales figures that make that viable either. Their durability means that even Toyotas that were sold 20 years ago are still on the road!
- That founder's name was Toyoda, but the name of the company was changed to Toyota because it took one less stroke to write in Japanese. Eight is a lucky number in Japan, and Toyota takes eight strokes to write, and so Toyota it is!
- Although Toyota started making its first cars in 1937, these were specifically produced to contribute to Japan's war effort. It wasn't until 1947 that they started producing cars for civilians.
- They might be one of the biggest and well-known brand names in the world, but Toyota is still very much a family business. Every CEO so far has been a descendant of the original founder.
