Remove the wheel, brake assembly and center axel nut. remove the nut for the lower ball joint and separate the lower control arm , this might require a little effort, tapthe end of the axle with a soft faced hammer to loosen it and pull it through the hub then use a prybar and remove the inner shaft from the trans, be ready for a little oil spillage, intallation is the reverse

1991 ford tempo can't get axel shaft back in looks like a pin is in the way how to correct

I can't picture the problem in my mind? Does the picture help anything? Is the pin inside the transaxle? If so, can you move the pin up or some way? Do you have the correct halfshaft? I don't replace cv joints, I replace the whole halfshaft. The picture isn't very good.

How do you replace front wheel bearing in 1987 ford tempo, standard transmission?

There is not really a wheel bearing. It is called a CV Joint. They are pretty difficult to change. If you do try it yourself then you will have to have it re-aligned.

Subaru cv axle noise?

Do you know if this car has ever been recked? if your going thru that many axels makes me think something is not running true, a wheel bearing would not make a cv joint in a axel go bad. Did you replace the axels? or did you have them done at a shop, and did you see the old axels after they were replaced. You got bigger problems than a wheel bearing. From what i can gather some thing is bent or your getting bunch of bad axels witch i dought.

Fuel pump for a 1987 Tempo

If I remember correctly, I think those tempo's had a fuel shut-off trip switch in case of collision. Look in rear drivers side trunk, and pull driver side panel off. You should see a switch in there with a plunger on top that you push down to reset. Worth a try.

Front wheel on 92 ford tempo gl

Your hub assembly is worn out. Your hub assy. is another word for wheel bearing. Check your CV axle condition while you have it up in the air. If your outer boot is torn, replace the axle as well. Don't bother with replacing the boot, the bearings inside are still damaged.
