Is it possible to remove the rear spindle on a 2004 Nissan sentra?


Sure it is. Remove the bolts from the strut, ball joint and the stabilizer bar. If AWD, remove the nut from the axle. Use a hammer to release the ball/ stabilizers, joints. Dont hit the threads.

I cant remove my lower ball joint from a 98 nissan sentra


now i know this sounds bad but first thing is to throw that away ,,, next open nut on balljoint and then take a hammer and if you are a fella with good aim ,, strike the little housing that the balljoint is stuck in ,,,, a experienced mechanic can do it in 2 to 3 srtikes so theres a challenge for you!!!! seriously if you can hit it hard and have good aim it will come apart easy ,,,, modern stuff is alloy but yours is steel so you can hit it hard and do no harm ,,, once you dont beat the hell out of any thing else ,,,

Removing lower ball joint on nissan navara


Remove front wheel (axle stand under chassis).
Remove hub nut (32mm).
Disconnect steering track rod ball joint (leave nut on last few threads for protection 22mm then strike steering arm part of knuckle to shock pin free).
Remove brake caliper & disc. Hang caliper out of way. No need to disconnect brake hose.
Disconnect ABS sensor at top arm area and unclip from mount.
Loosen top ball joint nut. Strike part of knuckle where pin goes through to shock it free. leave nut on loose for now.
Undo lower ball joint pinch bolt & remove. This will probably be seized & will require plenty of penetrating oil & patience to get out.
Next the lower ball joint pin needs to come out of the knuckle so the knuckle can be taken off. You will probably have to beat a chisel into the split portion to open it slightly as the ball joint pin will be rusted in.
Now you have plenty of space to remove the ball joint from the lower arm. Jack vehicle & move stand to under lower arm just in enough to allow ball joint to be removed.
Remove circlip & hammer ball joint out. Use a suitable drift so as not to accidently miss & burr lower arm.
Now the part the perfectionists are not going to approve of.
Heat the hole in the arm gently with a torch (no need to get it glowing red hot but pretty hot!). You will know when its right by trying the old joint (you will be able to get it in position by hand easily without hammering). Now put the new ball joint in place & quickly & drench with cold water before any heat from the arm damages the new ball joint. Fit new circlip.
Reassemble everything in reverse.
There are other ways to do this job but I found this the most practicle for DIYer without special tools.

  1. Remove the suspension lower arm ball joint cotter pin.

Need to replace left lower ball joint, how to accomplish this?


I believe these ball joints need to be pressed by a machine if you want to this yourself its going to be really hard so just take it off the part and take it to a shop they should press it for cheap.

How to remove lower ball joints on a nissan pathfinder is ther a trick to removing the ball joint


Disconnect the caliper and mount, and hang it aside. Unbolt the 5 or 6, 6mm allen head bolts from the hub. Pull the hub out and remove the snap ring and washers behind it. Loosen the upper ball joint nut a little and break the joint free. Support the lower control arm with a jack and loosen the lower ball joint nut and break it loose also. With the lower control arm supported, remove the upper ball joint nut and slowly remove the lower control arm support (jack). The shock will retain the torsion bar and you can now remove the lower ball joint nut and slide the knuckle off the ball joint. You will be able to move the knuckle and axle around enough to give you access to the four bolts securing the ball joint

Hi,
Remove the castle nut on top of the ball joint that secures the ball joint to the spindle. separate ball joint/lower control arm from spindle.Remove lower control arm bolt attatching control arm to subframe/engine cradle. Remove control arm. Replacement is recersal of the removal. Nissan/Infinity ball joints can not be pressed out or in. They are replaced with the whole new lower control arm as one (On most Nissan/ Infinity vehicles, although some exeptions apply. Hope this helps.
