My front axle is rubbing and tearing my boot why


Do you mean the tie rod end? Did you recently change your tires and/or wheels? Wheels can have different offsets, so choose carefully if you change them. I had problems with my track bar on mine. It was wrecked before though. Has yours suffered front end damage that you know of? Have someone watch underneath while to turn your wheels back and forth slowly. They should look for anything shifting or separating.

Overloaded ERF EC11 and now rear wheels wont turn broken Diff?


possible but if you overloaded the unit I would be checking for a broken axle . Jack up the vehicle and turn the tail shaft to see there are any violent noises indicating a pinion gear/ crown wheel gear failure. remove drain plug to check for metal pieces on magnet

Replacing front right axle on a Suzuki Esteem 2000. Have the new part. Just can't get the old one off. Tried just about everything. Need a good tip


Before taking the wheel off loosen and remove the center nut holding the drive shaft into the hub. Take off the wheel, unbolt the caliper, hang the caliper from a piece of wire, and take out the bolts holding the bearing hub to strut assembly. Now pull out the top of the bearing holder and push it down hard while bending the outer joint and pulling the axle up and out of the bearing holder. If this a rare car where you can not get enough clearance to remove the end of the axle, then you may also have to take the nut off of the tie rod end and pop it out of the steering arm. You can usually get the axle out with out unbolting the lower ball joint or popping the tie rod out of the steering arm.

My 66 mustang pops when I turn it right. I think


The first suggestion is to replace the tie rods. In most cases where there is alot of play and a popping sound when the wheel is turned is because the inner parts of the tie rods are worn through and should be replaced as soon as possible. You could lose control easily if the tie rod pops out completely.
There are inner and outer tie rod ends which keep the wheel in a straight line while attached to the axle. Tie rod ends can be found on the inside of the wheel and are attatched to a longer metal bar which allows tight steering by controling the path of the wheels. The tie rod ends themselves look of a ratchet, with the handle end being threaded.

I have a hose hanging from my rear axle. Where is


It is a vent for the rear end. It would have been attached to a frame cross member. The fastener has probably rusted off. Use a piece of wire or a zip tie and fastn it back up. Hope this helps.

Sounds like something hits under passenger side near front of car. My son decribes it as a hard grinding sound. Thank you, Mrs. Margaret A. Hunt mhunt3@bak.rr.com (661) 283-0674 (661) 4285005 my cell (661)...


Does the sound only occur when you're turning the wheel? If so, it may be a failing CV joint.. It could also be a loose drive axle connecting rod. My 97 Tercel CE had an unusual problem: there is a strange rubber/metal "donut" thing which is mounted on the main drive axle, mine came loose and was whacking around along the axle's shaft.

If you remove the passenger side front wheel, then take off the splash guard (two 10mm bolts on the side in the wheel well + two 10mm nuts on the front) you can see the drive axle. If the rubber/metal stabilizer donut has broken loose from the clips which hold it in place, then it will whack around regardless of what speed/direction you're going.

In my case, in the end I was too lazy to disconnect the drive axle and wheel assembly, so I just took some large zip ties and re-fastened the donut into approximately the proper place on the drive axle. That solved my problem, and it runs smoothly now.

Hopefully it's not your CV joint! Hope this helps.
