There are two ways:
1. Pickle fork ball joint seperator. ( It will damage the dust boot.)
2. Look at some of these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feKKmmSJ2ZA&feature=related

Hi there ... I'm not sure if you've pulled the old thermostat out yet. If you haven't pulled it out look at the way it's in. Normally the but end is towards the engine. (**** end is the end with the spring in it)

SOURCE: 1992 Honda Accord (LX) Instrument Cluster Replacement

Same as 2 dr, or a stick.
There are bezel screws that hold the plastic trim (pointing up towards the windshield), you nee to remove these 2 screws. The bottom section is clipped in. Tilt the steering wheel down as far as it will go.
Once you have the bezel off, there are 4 screws holding the cluster to the dash. Remove them and gently pull the cluster forward. Reach around (expect to get scraped knuckles) and unclip the speedo cable, and two large multipin connectors. Don't force anything.
Getting the cluster out after this point is a test of your patience. It only seems to come out one particular way.

I have a 92 accord LX. I am in need of changing the Right upper control arm. I am not sure how to go about this. Any information would be much appreciated.


Replacing the upper control arm is an easy job, you will need to remove the front wheel, open the hood, you will remove the nut on the balljoint for the upper control arm to spindle, then use a fork and hammer to sperate the two. the next step is to remove the two achor nut in the engine compartment on the strut tower area. and out comes the control arm. you will need to have an alignment done after this job to align the front end. heres a diagram to help you locate the balljoint nut and the achor nut. hope this is helpful.10_22_2011_11_10_13_pm.gif

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

Remove/replace front rotors


Actually, it’s a bit involved, but you can do it.
Loosen the wheel lug nuts, raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands. Remove the wheel and install two lug nuts with 3mm washers under them to hold the disc in place (if the two disc retaining screws are still in place, this will be unnecessary)
Remove the brake caliper. It is not necessary to disconnect the brake hose. After removing the caliper bolts, suspend the caliper out of the way with a piece of wire. Remove the two caliper mounting bracket to steering knuckle bolts.
Remove the driveaxle hub nut. To prevent the hub from turning, put a prybar between two of the wheel studs and against the ground, then loosen the nut.
Remove the cotter pin and loosen the lower ball joint nut about three full turns. Don’t remove it. Separate the lower control arm from the steering knuckle (you’ll need to get or rent a two-jaw puller for that).
Swing the knuckle/hub assembly out away from the car and push the driveaxle through the hub assembly until the end of the driveaxle is free of the hub. The shaft on the end of the driveaxle is often hard to dislodge from the hub, so you may have to tap the outer end of the shaft with a soft mallet until it pulls easily out of the hub.
After the hub and axle are separated, support the outer end of the driveaxle with a piece of wire to avoid unnecessary stain on the CV joint.
Remove the four bolts that hold thehub and brake disc assembly to the steering knuckle and remove the hub and disc.
Put a pry bar or something like one between two of the wheel studs to keep the whole thing from turning as you maybe put your feet against the bar, and then remove the four bolts that hold the disc to the hub assembly. Then you will have your disc. Installation is the reverse.
I hope this helps you. Give yourself plenty to time to deal with it.

How do you change the front wheel bearings on a 1994 Kia Sephia?


its a pressed in bearing,i would recommend u to have it done by mec.but here goes,take wheel off,undo cv axle center bolt,undo brakes,calyper,disc rotor,undo tie rod,lower control arm ball joint,undo strut from steer.knuckle,slide knuckle off cv shaft.at this point u can take steer.knuckle to machine shop to seperate and install hub and new bearing or u can have fun taping out hub and bearing and theres a good chance that bearing will seperate when taping out hub,youll need a puller to take bear.part off hub,then taping them back in without damaging bearing.u will need ball joint seperator,socket for cv bolt,2 jaw puller.
