I have a 2004 X type Jaguar. I have the saddle gas tank removed from the car. I am having trouble removing the large plastic ring to remove the fuel pump. Is there a trick to do so. I have rented a special...

I ahve never used that tool - I use a cold chisel and a hammer, making sure I am not at a cutting angle and holding the chisel at about a 45 degree angle vertically and aiming perpendicular to the wall of the tank - the idea is to use the chisel to turn the plastic ring without cutting it. A dull chisel may help you better than a sharp one. You don't need to turn that ring more than 1/4 turn before it moves easier ( without the chisel ) and should only need to move 1/2 turn before the ring comes off.

Hopefully my crummy drawing comes out to demonstrate the direction you need to hammer in - please excuse the crumminess as I am NOT an artist!!!

1996 geo metro, passenger side half shaft (CV joint) Shaft and ball joint shaft stuck in spindle unit. Tried lube and a wheele puller, any good ideas??

i use a 3 arm puller to force the shaft out of the hub spline (do not hammer on the cv shaft at all, you will destroy it), and either a pickle fork or a specialy designed ball joint puller to seperate the balljoint from the knuckle. if you dont have a special puller and need to save the balljoint. try using a 6 or 8 foot steel bar to pry down on the lower control arm while another person strikes the knuckle at the balljoint location. note pin retainer type balljoints have a small slot which can be spread open alittle with a cold cut chisel or larg screw driver once the cv shaft is out of the way

How do i replace the upper and lower ball joints on my 2000 dodge durango

Dear Balljoint Replacer.....
This is a very labor intensive repair.The specialty tools that you need will be an air (or electric) die grinder, and an air hammer.If you already have these then GREAT!!! If not then be prepared to invest in a good $500 purchase for these tools.Once you get the vehicle up in the air and the wheels off then place jackstands underneath the frame and the lower control arms on both sides.Keep in mind to keep the jack stands underneath the lower control arms at all times because your suspension will be under load.Remove the brake calipers from both sides and swing them around and out of the need to break open the brake system....just swing the caliper and whole hose assy out of the way. Once tis is done its time to loosen and remove both upper and lower balljoint nuts...after that is performed then it's time to shock the spindle with a hammer to release the balljoints from the spindle.Your balljoints will then be ready to be removed.Now you have to take your grinder and score your rivets that hold your balljoints in on both the upper and lower so the top of the rivets are ground down to the control arm.Next take a punch and hammer the rivets in a downward movement to release the rivets and you can remove each balljoint like that.
The new balljoints install with nuts and bolts.Install is reverse of disassembly If you have any questions get back to me...HOPE I COULD HELP!!

2004 GMC Sierra CV half shaft problem

They come off really easy just take a sharp chisel and a hammer and put the chisel between two of the teeth on the abs ring and hit it fairly hard but you don't have to hit it with alot of force just repeat till the ring splits then tap it off with a the chisel or screw driver it will come off really easy after it is split.
