Question about Hyundai Motor 1998 Accent
Please can you help me complete this task, I have mechanical know how but i have never done this kind of job....... can i just pop the joint out of the gearbox with a lever? the experts say they can do it in 1 hour? but my wallet tells me I had better do it myself!!!
This task isn't that awesome however to do it correctly you will need a quantity of quality tools.
I am not in front of a Hyundai at the moment save to say I've popped out many drive shafts in my time and it is not just a question of prysing it out of the differential (Final Drive).
O.k. are you sitting comfortably?
First you need either the whole front end of the vehicle suspended safely on axle stands, wheel or wheels off, then you need to undo the drive shaft locking nut that goes through the disc/rotor (Wheel Bearing housing) Do this with someone applying the brakes makes life easier.
The bottom ball joint needs to be separated so the whole suspension leg can swing towards you.
Still with Me? Good.
Push the shaft out of the drive/rotor so it is clear then is the time to carefully prise the other end out of the differential, gearbox as you put it.
I havn't examined many Hyundai driveshafts but is the sock/boot/gaitor on the Constant velocity joint closest to you? if so you may not need to remove it from gearbox/differential.
If you do decide to remove, remember! oil will start to run out so a clean receptical is necessary if you intend to return it (I would drain and replace personally) but you're on a budget I know.
I hope this clears the clouds for this operation? I may have overlooked some minor things but hey this is written work not pictures.
Tools? Axle stand/s, possibly a 24 to 36mm impact socket, a set of 10 to 22mm open ended and ring spanners, assorment of grips/pliers, good solid screwdrivers, rubber mallet,ball joint splitter and a quality pry bar.
I may have forgotten something but that's enough to get you going.
I have set out all the above for FREE so please remeber to rate my efforts/work.
