It doesn't "unbolt" it is pressed in and out with a special ball joint press tool, about $150 to buy a decent one.

How to replace ball joints


remove wheel, unbolt steering track rod,unbolt the ball joints ,you will need some sort of joint splitter ,this is a metal forked wedge that you hammer between the joint and chassis when replacing new joint you will need to use a jack under new joint to apply some pressure so that when you tighten the nut then ball joint does'nt spin round and not tighten,make sure you know the torque for the nuts as over tightening can cause joint to fail in some way this is important to get right

Do Buick lesabre 1993 have rear ball joints, and if soo, how do you tell if it is bad, and how would you go about replacing it.. Thank you


YES. jack the car up and shake the wheel side to side. if the ball joint is bad the wheel will feel loose. to replace , you remove the tire, brakes,and unbolt the strut. then you separate the ball joint from the spindle, then press the old joint out of the control arm and then press the new one in . reassembly in reverse procedure and then have the car aligned.

How do i replace my front wheel bearings on my 1997 vw jetta


You'll need to remove wheel hub assembly. Disconnect from the strut and lower ball joint, unbolt the brake caliper, carrier and rotor. Press out the wheel hub, remove the retaining clips in the assembly and press out the old bearing.

Do I need to remove struts first to replace lower ball joints on a 95 Nissan Altima?


Would help to unbolt the strut from the steering knuckle to help getting the knuckle off the ball joint.

How do I go about changing the bearings in my front hub?


In order to change them you must do the following.
1) Remove tire
2) decompress the brake caliper
3) unbolt brake caliper and lay it to the side (no need to disconnect brake line
4) remove castle nut from axel
5) unbolt stearing linkage from ball joint (on van door side of hub)
6) unbolt strut from hub (make sure the vehicle is jacked up high enough to allow the hub/wheel assymbly to hang as low as possible.
7) remove CV axel from hub
8) unbolt lower ball joint from hub
9) take hub out
10) remove seal and retainer ring form front and back of hub (retainer ring is on the front side seal is on the back side
11) I highly recommend a press (rent one it is worth it, trust me) and remove the old bearing.
12) insert new bearing and press in (again I recomend renting the press)
13) put everything back the way it came off and your done.
NOTE: I strongly suggest placing the bearing in the freezer for several hours before you start working on the replacement. This lets the metal contract slightly and makes it easier to get it into the hub.
Also you might need a small propain torch to heat the hub up to make it easier to remove the old bearing (especialy if you do not have a press, again RENT THE PRESS)
Good luck.

Replacing CV Joints


Yes you can remove the drive shaft by unbolting the bottom ball joint,then removing the nut that holds the shaft in the hub I would'nt recommend trying to replace just the CV joint as this can be a very complicated procedure involving specialized tools and more than just general mechanical skill,this isn't true of all,as some CV's come apart fairly easily.If the joint is bad you should probably just replace the axle.Remember to match mark any adjustable parts you may have to disassemble,and when you reassemble make sure to check the splines of the shaft and the drive hub,remove any foreign material and carefully file or sand any burs or scratches,any of these can cause the spline to bind on reassembly and possibly cause irreparable damage to one or both parts.Good luck hope this helps.

Instructions needed--To help me replace my CV joint and my Ball Joints


the ball joints arent hard to do at all all you have to do is take the front tires off and you will see the ball joints as soon as you do this. then there is a nut on the bottom of the ball joint, remove it. then where the ball joint assembly connects to the tie rod mark where the end of the nut is with a sharpie. then loosen the compression nut that holds the ball joint then use a large wrench to loosen the ball joint assembly. then take off the old ball joint and replace it wit the new one lining up the backside of the compression nut with the mark you made with the marker then tighten. then put the bolt on the bottom of the ball joint assembly back in to the hole where you removed it then tighten snugly and put your tire back on and you are finished and then do the same on the other side
