    gee, I NEVER thought of that!

    seriously why would YOU waste the time and effort of posting a response like that? I CAN'T F*ING SEE IT AND BEFORE I GO TO THE TROUBLE OF TEARING IT ALL APART I NEED TO KNOW IF IT IS WELDED. IF IT IS, I CANNOT FIX IT.

It is bolted i am pretty shure.....

vehicles vary....but most likely bolted..............

i dont think it is welded becasue of the pressure that would produce the fame.

Is the cross member under the load


cross members are the chassis members that tie the side frame rails together. There will be one at the front and another at the centre of the chassis and one at the rear . There is a bolt in cross member at the rear of the gear box (rear engine mount). Most modern cars are uni-construction (that is the body is complete and the front section will have a front cross member and the sub-frame rails will be bolted under the body around the front door pillars and onto the fire wall.. IN heavy vehicles there is a front cross member the carries the front engine mount another after the gear box to carry the cabin mounts and then a member every 3-4 feet to the end of the chassis rails . Their only purpose is to tie the chassis rails together.

How do I adjust the torsion bars on my 4wd 1994 toyota pickup?


On the end of the bar in the chassis cross member you will see a cast arm and a big bolt and a lock nut . By undoing the lock nut and turning the bolt you apply extra torsion or less torsion on the rod . I f you do not have enough adjustment in the bolt then jack up the front of the vehicle so that there is no load on the bars . Remove any retaining clips and reposition the cast bar on a different spline . The closer to the cross member means extra torsion on the bar when the vehicle is lowered to the floor. and you can increase that load by screwing in the bolt to push the cast arm away from the cross member.. If you want to raise the vehicle then repeat the jacking steps and use a pair of stilsens ( pipe pliers) and twist the bar away from the cross member before replacing the cast part. That puts load on the bar even before lowering it down and so the body will sit higher. ONE VERY IMPORTANT NOTE USE QUALITY CAR JACKS BEFORE GOING UNDER THE VEHICLE AS THE WORK BEING DONE WILL PULL THE VEHICLE OF THE JACK AND PERSONAL INJURY WILL OCCUR.

How to remove starter motor from 1988 nissan pathfinder? It is so cluttered there, is there an easy way?


DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FIRST.


Basically, remove the 2 bolts from the bell housing (pretty easy).
But the starter won't have enough clearance to drop down, so it has to be pulled over the cross member that holds the motor mounts, through to the front.

The electrical harness has a bolt that connects it to the engine block. This bolt has to be removed in order to give you enough slack to pull the starter all the way forward. Also, you have to remove the right tie rod and get it out of the way so you can pull the starter through.
Then, disconnect the two wires from the starter and reverse the process with your new starter.

Have a nice day, and thank you for using Fixya.

Knocking coming from under the extended cab from


There called torsion bar mount bushings, and will cost about $34.00 for both of them. Parts Source.

Jack up RH side of truck, crawl under LH side
  • 1 Remove nut from torsion bar mount stud that secures the mount to the cross-member. You'll have to feel for it, you won't be able to see it from below.
  • 2 Remove bottom two bolts. Easy, they're in plain view from below. Now the mount is free.
  • 3 Push up on cross member, remove old mount.
  • 4 Insert new mount - push up on cross member, slip mount in between frame and cross member. Drop hole in cross member over the stud.
  • 5 Loose assemble nut and two bolts. Torque down once other side is done.
Now over to the passenger side
  • 6 Jack up driver side of truck
  • 7 Repeat steps 1 and 2
  • 8 To get the mount out, try pushing up on the cross member, just like the driver side. If it comes out, great. I couldn't get the cross member up high enough on mine. I used a big screwdriver and ripped it out by separating the rubber from the metal plate. It came out in pieces.
  • 9 Install new mount. If you didn't have trouble getting the old one out, you probably won't have a problem getting the new one in. As I said, I did. I couldn't raise the cross member high enough to slip it in. Solution: whack 3/8" off the stud. You'll still have plenty left for the nut.
  • 10 Reinstall nut & bolts, torque down.
  • 11 Remove jack, Torque down drives side.
Good luck. The TRW's are one-piece urethane, (I think) and came with a lifetime guarantee. They'll probably outlast the vehicle.

CLUNKING NOISE FROM REAR AXLE


Problem I found: Clunk when driving over even small bumps.

If Grand Cherokee is 1999-2004, then check this: Above the differential is a wishbone cross member control arm. The cross member attaches to the frame in front of the rear axle (bolts through rubber bushings), and directly above the differential, at the apex of the cross member, is a ball joint. The ball joint assembly is a flange bolted atop the differential, with three bolts, and the ball joint pin protrudes from the flange through the cross member apex, with a nut atop the pin. Raise the frame slightly, and with a pry bar, pry above the flange, and below the cross member, very near the ball joint. If any motion is detected, then the ball joint is worn from the ball joint socket, or the nut is loose on the ball joint pin. If the nut is tight, then replace the ball joint. 2000 GC part number is 52088808AB, and is available from online sources or dealers. To replace this part, you'll probably need to remove the cross member, as the ball joint pin through the cross member is in a tight location, is tightly wedged into the cross member, and requires a special v-shaped puller to remove the pin from the cross member. If you don't have access to the puller tool, then remove the cross member for this operation. Raise vehicle slightly, under frame, in front of rear wheels. Unbolt the brake line and brake cable retainers from the cross member, then unbolt the flange from atop the differential. Then remove the two frame bolts and manipulate the cross member out of the vehicle, from above the differential.

With the cross member before you, support on blocks, loosen the ball joint nut somewhat, or remove it, and with a beater protective block, sledge out the pin from the cross member. Inspect the rubber bushings at this time. These bushings require an arbor press to remove/install, and the arbor press to install requires a spider so as to not rip the rubber bushing from either the bushing shell or center spool. The press spider is a 4-point tool you can make up from a piece of aluminum.

Bolt the new ball joint flange atop the differential, using blue thread locker, and torque the bolts to 100 ft-lb, cheater pipe useful here.

Replace the cross member to the frame, and install the two frame bolts, finger tight. Pull the member apex down onto the ball joint pin, and run the nut down. Using a box end wrench, hold the pin from rotation while tightening down the nut. Torque the nut to 100 ft-lb. Tighten the frame attachment bolts to 100 ft-lb, and reinstall the brake cable and brake line retainers. Do not over tighten these retainer bolts, as they are passing only through the sheet steel side of the cross member. Take care to not strip the sheet metal threadings. Lower vehicle and remove jack.
