When setting the rear axle nut, tightening it with a good impact gun is very sufficient. The approximate torque is going to be around 250 ft lbs to gain adequate torque so it doesn't destroy the hub. Great little cars! Enjoy and if you need anything else, my father and grandfather were Porsche/Audi master techs and I have some experience with these so I can get some info quite easily! After tightening the nut, turn the wheel and make sure you do not have heavy drag from the bearing. Any drag should be from the normal action of the differential.

What is the torque setting on the nut on the half shaft once you put a new one in ? the driver side.


I have a 1992 Camry, I torqued it a little over 150 ft/lb then there is a cover on the nut with a cotter pin going through. working fine, you may want to check about your car.

How do I replace a CV joint boot on the drivers side front on my 1991 Chevy cavalier rs? Front wheel drive 4 cylinder?


There are thee ways to do this. The first, easiest, but least reliable way is to use split boot repair kit. This allows you to cut the old boot off, clean the joint as best you can, install new grease, and bolt the split boot into place and clamp it. These boots have a higher-than-average failure rate however. The next ways require jacking up the drivers side of the car, remove the wheel, caliper, and rotor. Then remove the hub nut that secures the half-shaft to the wheel bearing. Using a crowbar or other suitable tool, you must pry the inner CV joint out of the transaxle and maneuver the half-shaft out of the vehicle. You must take care not to separate the inner CV joint as it is easily damaged if overextended. You may have to separate the lower ball joint from the lower control arm to remove this shaft as it is the shorter of the two and has less space to work for removal. Once you have the half-shaft out, there are two options - repair or replace. Repair requires removal of the joint from the half-shaft assembly, and it can be difficult for someone with no experience. The easier option is to replace the entire half-shaft with a re-manufactured one. The cost is not much more than that for the repair parts, plus you don't have to worry about dirt, grit and debris in the joint damaging it since it is already fully sealed. Replacement is the reverse of removal. You simply insert the shaft thru the wheel bearing opening and into the transaxle. You must "pop" the inner joint into place to latch it, otherwise it will cause damage by leaking and binding. You will feel it lock in when you do it. The last thing that is critical is that the hub nut has a specific torque requirement. Too much or too little torque will cause the wheel bearing to fail very quickly. So use a reliable torque wrench set at the correct setting. There is no "feel" for the correct tightness on this nut.

I cannot get my transmission back in.


Check the pilot end of the spline shaft to make sure it did not get damaged, check the depth on the half shaft that spline fits in, look for index guides on both housings, also hope that you did not preload the crank shaft bearings if the issue is with the spline or the half shaft.

Replace cv joint 2006 chrysler sebring


remove wheel then remove the brake caliper from its mounting and support with a wire out of way, then rotor assembly, separate the ball joint from the spindle. remove the axle nut and pull the shaft out of the spindle. then pull half shaft out of the transaxle(transmission). be aware you will lose some trans fluid that you will have to replace. install new half shaft and re assemble in reverse order. the axle nut torque is 135 lbs. its cheaper to replace the half shaft as a unit as opposed to just the cv joint.

Ford torque settings


I am not real familiar with the ford focus C-max but I believe you are asking about the Half shaft. Short drive shaft from the transaxle to tire. these should be marked at the flange on both sides so that when re-install balance is maintained. otherwise loc-tite and as tight as you can get them without stripping them. I always used an 3/8 impact and just ran them in tight

I cant get the axle out of the front diff what is holding it in 2001 dodge durango


here is a diagram on how to get the front pinion seal out and it does mention how to get the axle loose. please do not forget to rate and comment about your experience with fixya today.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, please familiarize yourself with safety procedures.
  2. Remove both half shafts.
  3. Mark propeller shaft and pinion flange for installation reference.
  4. Remove front propeller shaft.
  5. Rotate pinion gear three to four times, to verify pinion rotates smoothly.
  6. Record pinion flange rotating torque with an inch pound torque wrench for installation reference.
  7. Hold flange with Holder 6719 and four bolts and washers.
  8. Remove pinion nut.
  9. Remove flange with Remover C-452.
  10. Remove pinion seal with a pry tool.

    67189-dako-g27.gif Pinion seal installer
    67189-dako-g26.gif Tightening the pinion nut
To install:
  1. Apply a light coating of gear lubricant on the lip of pinion seal.
  2. Install seal with Installer C-3972-A and Handle C-4171.
  3. Install pinion flange onto the pinion with Installer C-3718 and holder.
  4. Hold pinion flange with Holder 6719A.
  5. Install new pinion nut and tighten nut until there is zero bearing end-play.

    CAUTION Do not exceed the minimum tightening torque when installing the companion flange at this point. Damage to the collapsible spacer or bearings may result.
  6. Tighten pinion nut to 271 Nm (200 ft. lbs.).

    CAUTION Never loosen pinion nut to decrease pinion bearing rotating torque and never exceed specified preload torque. If preload torque or rotating torque is exceeded a new collapsible spacer must be installed.
  7. Record pinion flange rotating torque, with a torque wrench. Rotating torque should be equal to the reading recorded during removal plus an additional 0.56 Nm (5 inch lbs.).
  8. If rotating torque is low, tighten pinion nut in 6.8 Nm (5 ft. lbs.) increments until rotating torque is achieved.

    CAUTION If maximum tightening torque is reached prior to reaching the required rotating torque, the collapsible spacer may have been damaged. Replace the collapsible spacer.
  9. Install propeller shaft with reference marks aligned.
  10. Install half shafts.
