Question about 1996 Ford Probe
Have no haynes manual so need info + diagrams to change track rod end
and to remove, strip, clean and replace brake caliper on 96 2.5 probe
Hi, i have just read your requests for help! to change the track rod you need a splitter, because the joint is tapered, first make sure the car is jacked and on an axle stand, remove the nut from the top of the joint then look at where the joint meets the steering rack you will see a lock nut, loosen this nut, then split the t/rod from the hob, count how many turns you then unscrew the old unit, wind on the new one the same amount of turns, put the taper back into the hud and screw on the nut, when this is tight, tighten the lock nut on the rack, finally check the tightness of everthing, and away you go, i have found that on the probe the calipers are not really a servicable item i have done a few and after a short time they kick off again, also if the piston is corroded it is not worth doing as the piston corrosion is the main cause of siezure, hope this helps
