How do you remove the cv joint on the left side from the transmission?


YOU NEED A PULLER ON THE OUTSIDE WHEEL HUB PUSHING THE HALF SHAFT FROM THE FRONT HUB,THEN TAP THE SHAFT UNION AT THE JOINT CASE WITH A PLASTIC HAMMER TO REMOVE THE HALFSHAFT AND INNER SHAFT FROM THE TRANSAXLE. IF YOU HAVE AN INNER SHAFT REMOVE THE HALFSHAFT BY SETTING UP A PULLER ON THE OUTSIDE WHEEL HUB AND PRESSING THE HALFSHAFT FROM THE FRONT HUB. AFTER PRESSING THE OUTER SHAFT INSERT A PRYBAR BETWEEN THE TRANSAXLE CASE AND THE HALFSHAFT AND PRY THE HALF SHAFT FROM THE TRANSAXLE DONT PULL ON THE SHAFT.

How do iI remove the front wheel bearing?


The front wheel bearings on your Dodge Dakota allow the wheels to spin freely on the axle spindle. These sealed bearings may cause noise once they wear out, develop a pit on the races, bends and other damage that interfere with wheel performance. However, the front bearings form a single assembly with the wheel hubs and they should be replaced as a single unit. Fortunately, installing a new assembly is not a difficult process.

  1. Removing the Hub/Bearing Assembly
    • Before raising the front wheel(s), loosen the half shaft nut using an axle nut socket. Then remove the wheel/tire assembly and the half shaft nut. If your particular Dakota model comes equipped with an Anti-lock Bake System (ABS) sensor, remove the sensor form its bracket and move it aside.

      Now you are ready to remove the brake caliper and rotor. Make sure to secure the caliper to the coil spring using a piece of heavy wire. Do not let it hanging by the brake line to avoid damage to the brake hose attached to the caliper. With the caliper and rotor out of the way, you have access to the hub/bearing assembly mounting bolts.

      On some models, you can only access the hub/bearing mounting bolts through the holes in front of the hub/bearing assembly. Rotate the assembly by hand as you loosen and remove the mounting bolts. Once you remove the bolts, you can detach the hub/bearing from the steering knuckle and halfshaft. If the bearing assembly seems stuck to the halfshaft, use a 3 jaw gear puller to remove it.

What do i need to take apart to remove the drivers side front drive axel to replace the universal joint at the hub? could the axel slide threw the hole for the axel berring assembly or do you need to take...


Have not done this on your truck but book says just the upper ball joint needs separated. See procedure below from autozone.com. Please let me know if you have questions.
  1. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Front wheels (left side should be sufficient in your case) Front hub cotter pin, retainer and nut (axle nut)
  2. Using a floor hydraulic jack, support the lower suspension arm.

    Upper ball joint cotter pin and castle nut Knuckle from the front suspension upper arm
  3. Lower the lower suspension arm and steering knuckle slightly to facilitate easier halfshaft removal.
  4. Remove the 2 disc caliper mounting bolts, then lift the front disc caliper off of the front disc brake caliper anchor plate and position aside. Do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose; suspend it from the vehicle's frame with strong cord or wire.
  5. Remove the 6 front halfshaft-to-differential bolts.
    WARNING Use care to avoid damaging the hub seal when removing the front halfshaft.

    jturcotte_175.jpg

Fig. Halfshaft-to-differential mounting bolts (3 of the 6 bolts shown)-2001-03 F-150 and 2004 F-150 Heritage Edition


7. Remove the inboard end of the halfshaft from the differential case or extension axle case. Separate the front halfshaft and joints from the hub, then remove the halfshaft and joints from the vehicle.



To install:

  1. Slide the halfshaft outboard end into the hub, making sure that the splines engage.
  2. Situate the inboard end of the halfshaft against the front differential flange and install the 6 halfshaft-to-differential bolts. Tighten the halfshaft bolts to 60 ft. lbs. (82 Nm).
  3. Install the front disc brake caliper onto the rotor and anchor plate, then install and tighten the 2 caliper mounting bolts to 21-26 ft. lbs. (28-36 Nm).
  4. Lift the lower suspension arm and steering knuckle up until the upper ball joint stud is inserted into the steering knuckle. Install the upper ball joint castle nut and tighten to 57-76 ft. lbs. (77-104 Nm). Install a new cotter pin.
  5. Install the hub nut onto the halfshaft and tighten the hub nut to 221 ft. lbs. (300 Nm).
  6. Install the hub nut retainer and a new cotter pin.
  7. Install the front wheels and tighten the lug nuts in a star-shaped sequence to 83-112 ft. lbs. (113-153 Nm).
  8. Lower the vehicle to the ground.

  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning, then remove the hub/drive axle nut. Clean the threads of the nut.
    1. Unfasten the caliper mounting bolts, then remove and support the caliper aside with a suitable piece of wire.
    2. Remove the rotor by sliding it from the hub.
    3. If equipped with ABS, detach the front wheel speed sensor connector and unclip it from the dust shield.

    1. Unfasten the hub and bearing retaining bolts and dust shield.
    2. Place the transaxle in PARK.
    3. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub and bearing from the drive axle.
    4. If necessary, remove the steering knuckle.

To install:
  1. For 1993-99 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. If removed, install the steering knuckle.
    2. Position the hub and bearing assembly to the drive axle. Apply a light coating of grease to the knuckle bore. If the new hub and bearing has a protective plastic cover, remove it before installation. Also, do not handle the knuckle or hub assembly by the ABS sensor wire.
    3. Install a new drive axle nut and draw the hub and bearing onto the axle.
    4. Place the transaxle in NEUTRAL.
    5. Install the dust shield, being careful not to damage the bearing outboard lip seal.
    6. Install the hub and bearing bolts, then tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

  2. For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. Install a new hub and bearing seal in the steering knuckle with a suitable seal installation tool. Install the steering knuckle to the strut.
    2. Lubricate the hub and bearing with grease. Fill the cavity between the seal and bearing completely.
    3. Install the halfshaft.
    4. Connect the ball joint to the steering knuckle and insert a new O-ring around the hub and bearing assembly.
    5. Install the hub and bearing, and shield into the steering knuckle. Tighten the bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (90 Nm).

  3. If equipped, attach the ABS front wheel speed sensor connector, then clip the wire to the dust shield.
  1. Install the rotor and caliper assembly. Tighten the caliper bolts to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm).
  2. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning. If not already done, install the shaft washer and nut (if equipped). Tighten the nut to the following specifications:
  3. 1987-88 vehicles: 3 ft. lbs. (270 Nm).
  4. 1989-90 vehicles: 15 ft. lbs. (260 Nm).
  5. 1991-99 vehicles: 107 ft. lbs. (145 Nm).

How to replace the cv axles


  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assemblies.
  3. Remove the splash shield, if equipped.
  4. Drain the transaxle.
  5. Raise the staked portion of the hub locknut with a hammer and chisel. Lock the hub by applying the brakes and loosen the nut.
  6. Separate the stabilizer bar from the lower control arm.
  7. Remove the cotter pin and nut from the tie rod end ball stud.
  8. Remove the tie rod end from the knuckle, using a suitable tool.
  9. Remove the lower ball joint pinch bolt and nut.
  10. Separate the ball joint from the knuckle, using a prybar on the control arm.
  11. Position a prybar between the inner CV-joint and transaxle case. Carefully pry the halfshaft from the transaxle being careful not damage the oil seal. If equipped with a right side intermediate shaft, insert the prybar between the halfshaft and intermediate shaft and tap on the bar to uncouple them.
  12. Remove the hub locknut and discard.
  13. Pull outward on the hub/knuckle assembly, push the outer CV-joint stub shaft through the hub, and remove the halfshaft. If the halfshaft is stuck in the hub, install the old hub nut to protect the stub shaft threads. Tap on the nut, using only a soft mallet, to remove the halfshaft.
    NOTE Install Differential Side Gear holder K49A-4208-AT, into the transaxle after removing the halfshaft, to keep the differential side gear in position. If the gear becomes out of position the differential may have to be removed to realign the gear.
  14. Remove the intermediate shaft, if necessary, by removing the support bearing bolts and pulling the shaft from the transaxle.
