Front driverside tire wobbling and very unstable lug tight

Check the wheel hub bearing, jack so the wheel is off the ground, if the wheel can be moved in any direction 360 degrees, then the bearing is bad. If the wheel will move by pulling up and down then it's the balljoint, just back and forth, it's ths tierod.

How do you change the outer tirod on the 2007 jeep compass?

in order to do this job all you will need is a crescent wrench or adjustable wrench and loosen the locknut on the back of the tierod then turn the outer tierod off. Be sure to count how many revolutions you turned to get it off so that you can but the new one on the same way.

The left front wheel bearing on my 1995 3000 gt needs to be changed. how do i changed them, i was told i wuold need an extractor

If the bearing is pressed in you will have to take it to a shop to get them in, but you can remove the spindle and save yourself some money. Remove the tire, remove the bolts from the strut, tierod, cv shaft, and ball joint. To remove the ball joint and tierod from the spindle you will need a fairly large hammer. (Small 3lb Sledge works great). Hit the spindle were the tierod and ball joint go into it. Do not hit the threads of the two. Usually a couple of good hits will pop the tierod and ball joint out. Again make sure you hit the spindle, I can not stress this enough. When they are loose take it to a shop and have the bearings replaced. Buy your own as this will save you money also. Each side on the floor will take about two hours. Have fun

How to change hub on four wheel drive 1997 blazer

You'll need to remove the caliper and rotor, remove the axleshaft nut, disconnect the ABS sensor wire. Remove the nut holding on the tierod, and disconnect the tierod end, a Pickle Fork will help remove the tierod end and seperating the ball joints. Remove the upper and lower balljoint cotter pins and nuts, seperate the upper and lower balljoints and remove the spindle. The hub is bolted to the spindle from the back with 3 bolts. You maybe need to have the hub pressed out.

How do i replace a tie rod for 2002 kia sedona

You'll need to remove the wheel. Remove the nut holding the tierod to the spindle, also loosen the lock nut on the inner tierod end, that's against the end of the tierod. Use a tierod seperator tool to seperate the tierod end from the spindle. Unscrew the tierod end, counting the number of turns until the tierod end comes off. Reinstall the new one, the same number of turns, tighten the lock nut and the nut holding the tierod end to the spindle.

to change a tierod on 2001 malibu, jackup and remove front tire, next locate the nut holding tierod on tire side, remove cotter pin and loosen but do not remove the castle nut from the tie-rod end ball joint stud. then install a small puller and break loose the tie-rod end from the steering knuckle. remove nut and detach tie-rod end. (I forgot to mention before taking tie-rod end off of vehicle,loosen the tie-rod end jam nut and mark the position of the tie-rod end on the threaded portion of the tie-rod. you can also count the number of turns to take off so you can put it back on.) make sure the new tie-rod end is aligned with the mark you made on the threads of the tie-rod. have the alignment checked or adjusted after you have installed tie-rod end. if in doubt you can go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual for your vehicle, they are based on a complete vehicle teardown. the cost is only about 20.00.
