A large breaker bar and deep well socket is required to get the axle nut off. They are torqued down very tight-about 150 ft. lbs. Easier to loosen the nut sith the car and wheel on the ground, then you can raise the car, remove wheel, remove the nut and washer, and get to the rotor.

CV axle shaft replacement

1.Set the vehicle transmission in "Park" and engage the emergency brake before attempting to remove the front right axle. Place wood blocks behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling and loosen the lug nuts one complete turn on the right front wheel with a tire tool.

2. .Lift the front passenger side of the vehicle with a floor jack and slide a jack stand under the vehicle frame near the wheel. Lower the floor jack so the vehicle is sitting on the jack stand and move the floor jack out of the way.

3. Remove the lug nuts with the tire tool and set the front passenger wheel out of the way. Take the cap off the end of the axle with a standard screwdriver and remove the cotter pin from the axle with a pair of pliers.

    I need to know how to take off an axel on a 1992 plymouth laser front wheel drive and a 5 speed

    In general, on front wheel drive axle replacement, the method is as follows: raise and support vehicle and remove wheel, remove the axle nut (located in the center of the hub assy.), remove the nut retaining the lower ball joint and separate from the lower control arm, remove axle from wheel hub and suspend the hub to one side, use a pry bar to force the axle out of the trans-axle, reverse process to install and observe all torque specifications.

    How long does it take to fix front bearings on a 97 dodge caravan? and cost

    About an hour a side...This is the whole job and pictures....

    The hub and wheel bearing unit is serviced as a complete assembly. Replacement of the front drive hub and bearing assembly can be done without having to remove the steering knuckle from the vehicle. However, if the hub/bearing assembly is frozen to the steering knuckle, removal of the steering knuckle is required.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the cotter pin from the end of the stub axle. Remove the nut lock and spring washer. With the brakes applied, loosen, but do NOT remove the axle nut and washer with the vehicle still on the ground or damage to the wheel bearing will result.
    3. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the wheel.
    4. Remove the front brake caliper assembly from the steering knuckle assembly and support from the strut assembly using a strong piece of wire.
      1. Remove the front brake rotor from the hub/bearing assembly.
      2. Remove the retaining nut and washer from the halfshaft stub axle.
      3. Remove the ABS wheel speed sensor from the steering knuckle.
      4. Remove the 4 hub and bearing assembly mounting bolts from behind the steering knuckle.
      5. Remove the hub and bearing assembly from the steering knuckle.
    5. To install:
      1. Thoroughly clean the mating surfaces of the steering knuckle and the hub and bearing assembly of any foreign material or nicks so the surfaces are clean and smooth.
      2. Install the new hub and bearing assembly and tighten the mounting bolts in a crisscross pattern to 45 ft. lbs. (65 Nm). Be sure the hub and bearing assembly is seated squarely against the front steering knuckle.
      3. Install the disc brake rotor.
      4. Install the brake caliper assembly onto the steering knuckle.
      5. Install the axle washer and nut. Tighten but do not torque.
      6. Install the ABS wheel speed sensor.
      7. Install the wheel and lug nuts. Torque the lug nuts, in sequence, to 95 ft. lbs. (129 Nm).
      8. Lower the vehicle. Do NOT roll the vehicle until the axle nut has been properly torqued or damage to the front wheel bearings will result.
      9. With the vehicle's brakes applied, torque the axle nut to 180 ft. lbs. (244 Nm). Install the spring washer, nut lock and a new cotter pin. Wrap the cotter pin prongs tightly around the axle nut lock.
      10. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Check the wheel alignment.

    The hub/bearing assembly is attached to the steering knuckle with four bolts

    Removing a hub/bearing assembly

    If the hub/bearing is "frozen" to the steering knuckle, separate the ball joint and lightly tap on the hub/bearing from behind

    The hub/bearing assembly should free itself from the steering knuckle

    About $60 a hub.
