SOURCE: front upper ball joint replacement

The dealer's answer (if you are interested).......

The ball joint is pressed into the upper control arm and has a tapered stud for attachment to the steering knuckle. The ball joint stud is attached and locked into the steering knuckle using a special nut. The ball joint is a sealed-for-life type and requires no maintenance. If the ball joint is defective it will require replacement of the entire upper control arm.

Sorry.

SOURCE: How to change upper control arm on 1996 Honda Civic DX ?

UPPER CONTROL ARM:

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Remove the front wheels. Support the lower control arm assembly with a floor jack.
  3. Separate the upper ball joint from the steering knuckle using a ball joint separator tool.
  4. Remove the self-locking nuts from the upper arm anchor bolts. Remove the upper arm from the vehicle.

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.
To install:
Use new self-locking nuts when installing the upper arm and strut.
  1. Install the upper control arm assembly into the strut tower.
  2. Connect the upper ball joint.
  3. Install the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
  4. With all four of the vehicle's wheels on the ground, torque the upper control arm nuts to 47 ft. lbs. (65 Nm). Torque the castle nut to 32 ft. lbs. (44 Nm); then, only tighten it enough to install a new cotter pin.
  5. Tighten the wheel nuts to 80 ft. lbs. (110 Nm).
  6. Check and adjust the vehicle's front end alignment.
The bushings on the front lower control arms are replaceable on most models.
This procedure requires the use of a press and may be above the skill range of the average driveway enthusiast. It is recommended that this procedure be done by a qualified machine shop if you are not skilled in the proper use of a press.
  1. Remove the lower control arm that is in need of new bushings.
It is recommended that both the left and right lower control arm bushings be replaced at the same time. The vehicles handling may become unstable if there are new bushings on one side of the car and worn ones on the other.
  1. Set up the control arm in a press.
  2. Using a impact socket of the correct length and size, press out the old bushing.
  3. Install the new bushing by slowly using the press to push it into the control arm.
  4. WARNINGExcessive force could cause the bushing to bend or tear so be careful.
  5. Once the bushing is properly seated in the control arm, remove the arm from the press and install it on the vehicle.

SOURCE: Upper and lower ball joint replacement

to remove the axles, remove brake caliper and disc, remove hub assembly, the center hub/axle nut and...(there are i think 3-4 bolts on the back side of the spindle to remove the hub), you may have to force the hub off the spindle with a hammer or air hammer... once the hub is out the axle should slide out of the front differential allowing access to the ball joint nuts for removal...

Xf falcon ute has an annoying rattle on passenger side either dash or door any suggestions please


If the rattle can be heard while stopped and engine running then have someone looking for you try finding the source or engine not running then I would go to the side of the car and try bouncing/moving the car up and down. This may give you an idea as to where and or what is causing the rattle.

Nned to know how to set the cam and engine timing


Start with crankshaft pulley. At the rear of the pulley is a notch. Align it with the mark on the oil pump.(No 2 piston is at TDC) There is also a groove on the pulley that needs to be aligned with the white dots on the cambelt. The lettering on the belt must be readable as viewed from the front of the vehicle.
(When seated in the vehicle the RH bank of the engine is on the RH side of the vehicle.Keep this in mind)
At the front of the camshaft pulley is a groove. Rotate the RH bank camshaft pulley to align this groove with the mark on the cylinder head cover. On the cambelt is a white line. This must also align with these marks. Do the same on the LH bank. To be sure the cams are now correctly aligned remove the cylinder head cover. On the camshaft drive gears the letters RI(Right intake) and RE(Right exhaust) will be at the top and readable for the RH bank. (For the LH bank it will be LI and LE) Reinstall the tensioner and rotate the crankshaft with a wrench to make sure there is no unintentional mechanical contact.
