How do I remove the spindle axle on a 2001 dodge ram 1500 2wd? And what is the name of it exactly?


The spindle is what holds the front tires on. The axle is what holds the rear tires on. To remove the spindle, you have to remove the brake caliper first the remove the ball joint nuts. hit the spindle were the ball joints go in. The shock will release the ball joints. To remove the axles, you have to remove the differential plate, spin the differential until you see the bolt that locks the center pin in. remove both. push in the axle and remove the C clip. pull the axle out.

How to remove rear struts


Remove or disconnect the following:
NOTE
Hold the hex on the attaching link stud while breaking the nut loose. The attaching link does not have to be removed from the strut.
Rear wheel
Caliper assembly and rotor from the hub, if equipped with rear disc brakes
Brake flex hose from the support bracket and wheel cylinder, if equipped with rear drum brakes. Plug the brake flex hose to prevent system contamination. Do not allow the rear caliper to hang by the brake hose. Support the caliper off of the frame with a strong piece of wire.
Speed sensor cable routing bracket and tube, if equipped with Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
Lateral links to the rear spindle assembly bolts
Rear strut assembly-to-stabilizer bar attaching link at the stabilizer bar
Remove the rear spindle-to-strut assembly pinch bolt. Install a center punch in the hole on the spindle and tap the punch into the hole until jammed. This will spread the spindle casting allowing it to be removed from the strut.
Using a hammer, tap on the top surface of the spindle, driving the spindle down and off the end of the strut assembly. Let the spindle and assembled components hang from the trailing arm while the strut is being serviced.
From inside the trunk of the vehicle, remove the 3 upper strut mounting bolts and remove the strut from the vehicle.
Disassemble the strut by performing the following procedure:
NOTE
Service of the coil spring requires the use of a coil spring compressor tool. It is required that 5 coils be captured within the jaws of the compressor tool.

I have a 1999 dodge durango 2x4 slt I need instructions on how to remove a right steering knuckle I


Remove wheel, brake caliper bolts, set brake caliper aside. Remove axle nut and upper/lower ball joint securing nuts. Remove nut on outer steering control arm. (A hammer may be necessary to break the seal for the above mentioned items. Hit the spindle close to where the connections are and they should 'pop' free. You may find it necessary to remove the axle bearing. If this is the case, there are three(3), mounting bolts on the back side of the spindle that need to be removed first. With all of this out of the way, use a prybar to dislodge the axle from the transmission in an outward fashion. Reverse procedure to install.

How do i remove the hub assembly from the front wheel of my 2001 dodge ram RWD?


  • Jack up your Dodge Ram. Block the wheels to keep it from rolling as you work. Get started by removing the first tire and wheel assembly. Remove the hub extension and the brake caliper as well as the caliper adapter.
  • Remove the grease cap, cotter pin, nut lock, nut, washer and outer wheel bearing. Now, pull the old rotor off of the spindle. Clean the area with a damp cloth to remove any debris. Pack the wheel bearings with grease.
  • Install the new rotor and hub onto the spindle. Replace the outer wheel bearing, washer, and then the retaining nut. Torque the nut to 30 to 40 ft. lbs. while rotating the hub and rotor. Then tighten the nut and install the nut lock and a new cotter pin.
  • Clean the grease cap and then coat it with new wheel bearing grease and replace the cap. Put the caliper adapter back into place and then tighten the two mounting bolts with a torque wrench. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  • Repeat this process for each additional rotor and then lower the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts and test drive your Dodge Ram to make sure that the installation was successful.

    2000 dodge durango slt, driver side caliper top bolt hole is stripped, can it be rethread or how can i fix


    There should never be short cuts taken when dealing with the braking system. Its much safer and time consuming to buy a new bracket and caliper.

    How do you change the front disk pads


    The pads are mounted to the caliper. The caliper is bolted to the spindle bracket. There is brake hardware which should be replaced with the pads.
    Look behind the wheel at the backside of the spindle bracket. The spindle bracket is on the verticle shaft with coils on one end and an A shaped bracket on the other. There are usually 2 bolts that may have normal bolt ends or "Allen" bit fittings.

    When you buy the brake hardware you can check for the proper socket for the mounting bolt. You unbolt the caliper, use a rope or wire to suspend it under the frame without disconnecting the brake line.

    The pads come off with the hardware. You need to compress the caliper pistons to make the new pads fit. Use a C clamp and an old pad to squeeze the pistons back into the caliper. Remove the Master Cylinder cover so fluid can return.

    Then use a bonding chemical like "brake quiet" to mount the rear pad to the caliper piston. Mount outside pad to caliper and then slide caliper over the rotor on the spindle bracket. Lube the slides of the new brake hardware and bolt into place.

    You should have the rotors checked for thickness and whether they are warpped before you put on the new pads.

    How do i change wheel speed sensor on a 2001 pontiac grand am se


    well if it is the front wheel speed sensor it is part of the hub bearing and that hub unit will have to be replaced as one unit.

    first raise the vechile and support it with jack stands. remove the wheel that has the bad wheel speed sensor.

    then remove the brake caliper and mounting bracket.

    remove the brake rotor.

    remove the axle nut from axle.

    unplug wheel speed sensor wire harness and bracket.

    un bolt the three 15mm bolts on the back side of the spindle for the hub bearing unit mounting.

    after everything is un bolted you will need to soak the mating surface of the hub to spindle with wd-40.

    take a hammer and cold chisel between the mating surface of hub and spindle. work your self around the mating surface of the hub.

    depending how corroded it is the sensor part of the hub unit may stay stuck in the spindle and if that happens use hammer and chisel to remove it.

    clean the inner surface of the spindle where the hub sits and re install in the reverse procedure.

    if you have any more question please ask i will be glad to help. good luck

    Brake caliper


    Did you try to thread it back in with caliper out of the way? Sometimes the caliper is just a hair out of it's proper position, and will cause that, which is probably a good thing, so it doesn't get re-assembled incorrectly. If one of the bolts will thread in without caliper on, I'd double check my assembly position, otherwise use good bolt to determine whether threads on spindle are bad, or on bolt that came out. You may need to run a tap through it, or a thread chaser.
