How to change a Xantia bottom ball joint


Depressurize the hydraulic system. Jack the front and put on jack stands (both left and right side). Remove wheels. Slacken and unscrew the ball joint nut partially. Release ball joint from knuckle using a proper separation tool. Once dislodged, remove ball joint nut and pull out strut/knuckle away from lower arm. You may need to push down the arm with a lever. Remove dust cover from the ball joint. The ball joint can be removed by unscrewing it using a tool that locks into the notches on the sides of the ball joint. Install new one by screwing in the ball joint back into the knuckle.Tighten well.

How do I replace rotor on front right side of my 1997 accord?


You have the fun ones! What you will need to do is remove the knuckle from the vehicle. Remove the axel nut Rmove the caliper Unbolt the brake lines from the knuckle. Seperate the outer tie rod from the knuckle Seperate the upper ball joint from the knuckle Seperate the lower ball joint from the knuckle and remove knuckle from the vehicle. With the knuckle removed you can access the four bolts on the back side that secure the wheel bearing to the knuckle. Remove those for bolts and tap the wheel bearing out of the knuckle. You can then remove the four bolts that hold the rotor to the hub and then remove the rotor. Tip: replace the wheel bearing at the same time. You will probably ruin it when you move it from the knuckle. After reassembly make sure you tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. Failure to do so will cause the bearing to fail! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Front brake rotors.


1. Loosen the wheel nuts slightly. 2. Raise the front of the car and support it with safety stands in the proper locations. 3. Remove the wheel nuts and front wheel. 4. Remove the brake hose mounting bolts. 5. Remove the caliper bracket mounting bolts, and hang the caliper to one side. CAUTION: To prevent accidental damage to the caliper or brake hose, use a short piece of wire to hang the caliper from the undercarriage. 6. On ABS equipped vehicles, remove the wheel sensor wire bracket, then remove the wheel sensor from the knuckle but do not disconnect the wheel sensor connector. NOTE: Use ball joint removers to separate the ball joints from the suspension or tie-rod end. 7. Clean any dirt or grease off the ball joint. Remove the cotter pin from the tie-rod end ball joint castle nut and remove the nut. 8. Apply grease to the special tool on the areas shown. This will ease installation of the tool and prevent damage to the pressure bolt threads. 9. Install a 10mm hex nut on the ball joint. Be sure that the hex nut is flush with the ball joint pin end to prevent damage to the threaded end of the ball joint. 10. Adjust the jaw spacing by turning the pressure bolt. NOTE: If necessary, apply penetrating type lubricant to loosen the ball joint. 11. Once the tool is in place, turn the adjusting bolt as necessary to make the jaws parallel. Then hand tighten the pressure bolt, and recheck the jaws to make sure they are still parallel as pictured above. 12. With a wrench, tighten the pressure bolt until the ball joint shaft pops loose from the steering arm. WARNING: WEAR EYE PROTECTION. THE BALL JOINT CAN BREAK LOOSE SUDDENLY AND SCATTER DIRT OR OTHER DEBRIS IN YOUR EYES. 13. Remove the tool, then remove the nut from the end of the ball joint and pull the ball joint out of the steering/suspension arm. Inspect the ball joint boot and replace if damaged. 14. Remove the cotter pin from the lower arm ball joint castle nut, and remove the nut. 15. Install a 12mm hex nut on the ball joint. Be sure that the hex nut is flush with the ball joint pin end, or the threaded section of the ball joint pin might be damaged by the ball joint remover. 16. Use the ball joint remover, 32mm, as shown to separate the lower ball joint and lower arm. NOTE: If necessary, apply penetrating type lubricant to loosen the ball joint. 17. Remove the knuckle protector. 18. Remove the cotter pin from the upper ball joint castle nut, and remove the nut. 19. Install a 10mm hex nut on the ball joint. Be sure that the hex nut is flush with the ball joint pin end, or the threaded section of the ball joint pin might be damaged by the ball joint remover. 20. Use the ball joint remover as shown to separate the upper ball joint and knuckle. NOTE: If necessary, apply penetrating type lubricant to loosen the ball joint. 21. Pull the knuckle outward and remove the driveshaft outboard joint from the knuckle by tapping the driveshaft end using a plastic hammer, then remove the knuckle. 22. Remove the knuckle from the hub unit. 23. Remove the four flange bolts, then separate the hub unit from the brake disc.

Taking off front rotors


the easiest way is to take off the knuckle loosen the four wheel bearing bolts on the backside of the knuckle and leaving the socket on each bolt use an impact hammer to drive the bearing out then rotate the rotor 1/4 turn and it should pull off. . . you might have to clean up the rust on the bearing with a grinder so the rotor will come off... do NOT take the bearing apart you do not need to. many shops will do this but it is not needed and ruins the bearing as it is a sealed unit not designed to come apart. ( to take the knuckle out take off the caliper and undo the axle nut, top and bottom ball joint and the tie rod end)
