Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta
These are actually easy to replace on these cars.
there are 3 small bolts that hold the ball joint to the control arm. new ball joints are sold with new hardware, so don't worry if it gets damaged when removing.
mark the postion of the old ball joint. they can be moved slightly on the control arm to change alignment.
the top of the ball joint is clamped into the wheel bearing housing with one large bolt.
I use a very large & dull chisel to spread the clamp on the bearing housing if the top of the ball joint is difficult to pull out of the wheel bearing housing.
