SOURCE: door lock assembly broken, rod assembly fell apart

There is a cheap plastic retainer on the end of the rod that holds it to the handle. Get a Wheel color from a RC airplane hobby shop and use it to hold the rod on the handle. Works better than the original clip. You don't need to take the door apart for this, you can usually reach the rod after removing the interior latch handle.

SOURCE: Need diagram for Mazda b4000 brake drum assembly

Okay, then you have what you need. Just take the drum off of the other side and use it as a reference. You are going to have a hard time trying to find a diagram. The Hayes and others are just general pictures and not necessarily what is on your specific vehicle. I do not have that particular diagram myself.
Please remember to rate this fix.

If they are sealed bearings, you will need a press to get them out. If they are bolt in, just remove the brake pads/rotors, then the axle nut, then the bolts holding the wheel bearing in. Install in reverse order.

How to remove lower ball joint?Pickle fork not big enough to break loose


Hi We do not have this vehicle here, need to know what type of suspension it has, more than likely it is a McPherson strut assembly, if it is the bottom ball joint will need to be released, I have found some very tight and have had to use both a portable hydraulic tool or the heavy duty pneumatic pickle fork with real good air pressure, one I had to warm the tapered eye boss area with a gas torch with the hydraulic tool at max. One other method is to leave the ball joint nut on loosely, heat the tapered eye area and with a very heavy duty brass drift and heavy hammer hit the side of the tapered eye assembly, this may pop the tapered ball joint bolt free. This is not at times an easy home workshop repair, you will need to be a very mechanical person, good luck. P.

How to change upper ball joint on 93 suburban 2500 4x4


Inspect/Test/Service/Replace Removing Ball Joint Tapers from the Steering Knuckle
The ball joint is connected to the steering knuckle with a tapered connection, called a steering taper, which is also used in other steering connections.
f57-19.gif A ball joint taper. Courtesy of Moog Automotive, Inc. To remove a ball joint requires the use of a ball joint remover.
Another way of "breaking" the taper is to use a large hammer.
  • First, remove the cotter pin from the ball joint nut and loosen the nut several turns.
  • Position the vehicle so that the coil spring is pushing on the ball joint. This could require lifting the vehicle or allowing its weight to rest on the wheels.
  • Use a hammer to pound sharply on the steering knuckle on the outside of the taper. this will deform the taper and spring pressure will separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle.
Removing the Ball Joint from the Control Arm
A ball joint can be retained by one of several methods.
f57-20.gif Three common ball joint retaining methods. Courtesy of Moog Automotive, Inc. Some ball joints are held in with rivets from the factory. The rivets are drilled and punched to remove them. Bolts and nuts are used to hold the replacement joint in place.
f57-21.gif Original equipment rivets are replaced with nuts and bolts. Courtesy of Moog Automotive, Inc. The most common method is press fit. Some manufacturers require you to replace the entire control arm assembly if a ball joint is to be replaced. In these cases, the ball joint and control arm are made as a single assembly and individual parts are not available.
If the control arm has been removed from the vehicle, a pressed-fit ball joint can be removed using a standard hydraulic press. when the control arm is still on the car, a special press set allows the removal and replacement of these ball joints. some pressed-fit ball joints have a spot weld that holds them in place. this must be carefully removed. when a replacement ball joint is installed, a snap ring often takes the place of the weld.
NOTE Be sure the grease release hole in the new ball joint's rubber boot is aimed away from the brakes.

Need to replace ball joints


http://groups.yahoo.com/group/villagerquest/ Ball Joint Removal
  1. Remove the wheel and tire assembly. For additional information, refer to Section 204-04 .
  1. Remove the suspension lower arm ball joint cotter pin.
  1. Remove the suspension lower arm ball joint nut and separate it from the wheel knuckle.
May have to leave nut partially on and hit the nut hard with a hammer to knock the tapered stud down and out. May have to hit side of knuckle to help get it to drop. or rent a pickle fork to drive between the bal joint and knuckle.
  1. Remove the suspension lower arm ball joint to suspension lower arm nuts and remove the ball joint.

How do u change cv boots on 4 wheel drive front axle


okay this can get tricky there are several ways to do this. How i do it I disconect the lower ball join you will need a pry bar to get the lower aframe apart i then take the hub assembly apart if locking hubs. if full time four wheal drive there is a cap at the center of the hub remove cap and take carter pin out remove nut, if has hubs like i said take hub assembly apart may need a tool looks like a big socket remove nut pull rotar assembl off and to the side ussually will swing to the front of the vehicle look at the back of the shaft if goes streight into transfer case should pull right out it may have a plate with several small bolts remove bolts should fall right out. to enstall reverse proceedure. I recommend having a haynes or chiltons manual so you know what the parts look like and what goes where.

I'm trying to replace the bearing in a 2004 mazda 3 Having trouble removing the housing from between the upper and lower suspension, we're using the pickle fork but are unsure why the pin wont come...


I am going to make some assumptions here , by housing , i'm thinking that you mean the hub/knuckle assembly. when you say pickle fork , I'm thinking that you are talking about a boll joint seperator fork. So........based on those assumptions , I'm thinking that you are having trouble getting the lower ball joint to pop out of the knuckle assembly.
I checked a parts suplier and looked at the ball joint . It is not a tapered fit into the knuckle , it is a strait stud with a dished groove around it. That tells me that there will be a bolt going across the ball joint from one side to another. The ball joint shaft will not come out of the knuckle untill the bolt is completely removed , loosening it will not work. Good luck

The front driver window made noise going up and then fell down.


It sounds like it came off the track. Take the panel off the door and inspect. Sometimes the rivets they use break, if that is all replace with small bolts.

When i took off the pan to change the transmission fluid a small object fell out with it. And i have no idea what it goes to


If it is a yellow ish color almost ball with an oring on it and a stick protruding on one side it is instaled in the transmission case where the dipstick tube goes. It is only there to prevent fluid from spilling durring vehicle assembly at the factory. Just put it in the trash. it serves no other purpose after vehicle assembly.
