It really isn't beyond you, the only difference i believe between the two is a wire connection plug. just make sure if you are going to do it, you don't pinch the wire

2007 dodge caliber rt slap stick put new tires on 3 months ago driver side front tire is worn cant let off wheel car pulls bad to the right side of the road

The popping could be from a bad CV axle joint, or a bad wheel bearing. Better get checked, sounds very worn. Raise the wheel on a jack and watch for play. Grab wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock, and shake back and forth-watch for play. Wheel bearing? CV joint -is boot still good? Ball joints at bottom of wheel attaching point to the control arm-check this for play, too.

Front rt wheel wobbles

If it is a front wheel drive, check & see if the axle nut is tight, if not tighten to spec's, if it is you may have a defective wheel bearing or steering rod, also check the ball joints.

How to remove gokart golf trolley front wheel

Paul, your solution does not apply to the GoKart electric golf trolley. Please use the following procedure to replace the bearings in the GoKart front wheel;1. Unscrew one of the round black plastic nuts on the end of the front wheels spindle.2. Hold the remaining nut, and by twisting and pulling on it, the front wheel spindle can be pulled out.3. You can then remove the front wheel.4. Remove the old bearings and fit the new ones. They just push into the front wheel.5. Clean and grease the spindle before re-assemby.

Only Rt turn signal works no matter if switch is in Lt or Rt position

The multi-function switch could be defective. The L/R position signals go to the instrument cluster then they are bussed on computer data lines to the front control module to develop the outputs that light the turn lamps. The defect could be in the instrument cluster, the front control module, or even the PCM

Spindle 1995 Lincoln Continental

Wheel Hub Brg Assy-- mounted to steering knuckle or spindle

I would unbolt the brake caliper,remove the rotor & turn the hub

That is the only way you will feel the bad bearings

At 35 to 45 mph you will hear it

I would do both side, if one is bad

If you have rear drive car, then only 4 bolts from the
back side would remove the hub
They are probalby 15mm,so you need metric sockets

Any front drive, then you have to remove the big spindle
or axle nut & pull the knuckle out from the axle

You should be able to do it

Won't happen in a couple of hours the first time

You may need torx driver bits or metric hex bits for
the speed sensor removal

You can can keep any new sensor & use the old one
That saves trying to get at the harness connector

How do you replace the front rotors on a 1996 honda accord?

Remove wheel. Take off outer driveshaft nut. Remove lower ball joint pinch bolt & separate ball joint from spindle. Pull rotor & spindle out & away to pull driveshaft outer splined end out of rotor center hub. Look on the back of the spindle for the 4 bolts that hold in the wheel bearing. Use a 12 point socket to remove the 4 bolts and remove wheel bearing from spindle (out towards the wheel stud side). Probably will have to use a air chisel to get it out. Once it's out undo the 4 bolts on the outer (wheel stud side) of the rotor and remove the rotor from the hub. Clean & lube the hole where the bearing was in the spindle & the inner face of the hub. MAKE SURE IT'S CLEAN otherwise you may get a pulsation on braking if theres a piece of rust or dirt between the rotor center & the hub face. Reverse procedure to install.

If the rear bolts don't come out then you will have to use a slide hammer to separate the bearing to replace the rotor and there is a very good chance you will need to replace the wheel bearing after you're done (noisy on road test).

Not the job to do at home, usually an easy 2-3 hours per side if things go bad (book time is 2.2 hrs per side). Use good quality rotors as you don't want to have to do it again because a cheap rotor gave you a pulsation.

Hub pulling problems

The front wheel bearing on you Cavalier is replaced as a assembly that unbolts from the back. You should not need a puller, it should pull off after you have removed the bolts and the axle nut.

Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

Hi. My A4 avant has started to make a grumbleing noise if I try and steer left or right when going in a streight line. Its on when turning , but seems to do it under power. Also, It has stopped receiving...

Try having the tires rotated first in this sequence; Front rt to Rear lft, and Front lft to Rear rt. If that won't quite do the trick, pony up for new front wheel bearings. You could be low on steering fluid, but you checked that, Right?
The FM problem is either a bad antenna lead/poor ground, or a defective tuner....accordianman
