SOURCE: is the lower ball joint easy to repair?

You need a hydraulic floor press.........with special tools, after removing the conrol-arm from the car!
Get it off, and take the whole thing to a machine shop with the new ball-joint. Make sure you get a wheel alignment when you're done........or you'll be buying tires soon.

SOURCE: front upper ball joint replacement

The dealer's answer (if you are interested).......

The ball joint is pressed into the upper control arm and has a tapered stud for attachment to the steering knuckle. The ball joint stud is attached and locked into the steering knuckle using a special nut. The ball joint is a sealed-for-life type and requires no maintenance. If the ball joint is defective it will require replacement of the entire upper control arm.

Sorry.

SOURCE: 2001 chrysler sebring ball joint (boot) repair

I do not believe that the balljoint is causing the squeak. Take your car to an independent mechanic that you trust. dealerships are notorius for mis-diagnosing (it begins with the intake person describing the problem wrong).

More than likely, the squeak is coming from a worn rubber bushing or mount. Check the exhast pipe hangers for worn rubber. Also check the anti-sway bar bushings and the motor mounts. You should be able to replace these with ordinary tools (assuming you have safe access to the botom of the car - i.e. jack stands). Also check the control arm bushings (these would require an expert, or a pro to replace).

If the balljoint boot is cracked, you can prolong the ball joint life by keeping it well greased. If grease is oozing out the crack, then the balljoint is protected. Replacing the balljoint boot requires separating the wheel spindle from the control arm and can be very dangerous because of the strut spring. This should be left to the expert, or professional mechanic. Also, if the ball joint is squeaking, it needs to be replaced.

If you still want to tackle this yourself, buy a Chilton or similar book (under $10) specifically for your car. They have good instructions and diagrams.

SOURCE: how do i remove the right rear door panel on a 04

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: how to change thermostat 04 sebring 2.7

The thermostat is located on the left side (standing from the back of the engine) under the Alternator. First step is to remove the neg bat cable. Try to use a mem-saver as it will save you alot of headache trying to reteach the PCM Remove the Alternator, be careful not to break the electrical connectors. You should be able to see the thermostat housing (looks like half a ball with 2 hoses coming out of it) Drain the coolant, and remove the housing..there are 3 bolts. Note the position of the old thermostat before removal. Install the new thermostat in exactly the same position, with the spring-end facing the engine. Clean any debris and residue from the inside of the housing cover. Put the new gasket on the thermostat and install. After everything is back as it was, re-fill the radiator start the engine and turn your heater on full. Watch for leaks.

How do I check ball joint wear on a 2005 Chrysler Sebring?


With the tire removed you may be able to push down on the lower control arm with a bar, if there is slack or movement at the ball joint you need new ball joints. the greater the slack the greater the urgency for new ball joints.

A popping noise on take off and sometimes turning


Sounds like you might have some worn ball joints. I would have the suspension checked ASAP. My one customer had the same thing with a Sebring, the ball joint broke and took out the axleshaft. The ball joints are $160.00 each, because you have to buy the whole control arm.

I need to change upper ball joint on pass side 2001 seabring 2.7 4door


I assuming it's the suspension ball joint, if it's spinning on it's axis, because it's so loose. then get a balljoint splitter, like a tuning fork, and wedge between the BALL JOINT and the plate, remove the bolt tapping the splitter to keep the tension on the joint. A good coating of lubricating oil, leaving fir about 1/2 hour will help release the nut. Regards, Dave
