1990 ball joint greasing problem

I tried to grease the ball joints on my 1990 Nissan Maxima, but they would not accept any grease. Did I need to open a port somewhere else to allow the old grease out, or does this mean they simply don't need any more?

I have a Nissan y12 wingroad and when I turn the steering wheel am getting a grinding noise. I changed linkage bushing and ball joint also grease. The noise still there


Hi , if the wheels are turning and your getting a grinding noise it could be your actual front wheel bearings that needs replacing. If you have power steering it could be the power unit that's gone if one is fitted.

Where are the grease fittings for ball joints on 1992 Nissan Sentra E


The vast majority of cars today do not have grease fittings for most components. They are sealed for the life of the part from the factory.
Only some replacement parts come with grease fittings.

Can you show me detail pictures of step by step repair of ball joint and controll arm of 1990 ford thunderbird v6 3.1 automatc


prev.gif next.gif REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Upper ball joints are not replaceable. The upper ball joint is part of the upper control arm bushing joint and is not serviced separately. If the upper ball joints are found to be defective, the entire upper control arm bushing joint assembly must be replaced. Lower Ball Joint INSPECTION
  1. Support the vehicle in normal driving position with ball joints loaded.
  2. Wipe the grease fitting and checking surface, so they are free of dirt and grease. The checking surface is the round boss into which the grease fitting is threaded.
  3. The checking surface should project outside the cover. If the checking surface is inside the cover, replace the lower arm assembly. prev.gif next.gif

Replacing ball joints 2004 in 2004 z-71


You'll need to seperate the control arm from the wheel hub. If the ball joints are installed with rivots, you'll need to grind off the heads and knock them out with a punch. The new ball joints should have bolts and nuts to reinstall the new ball joints. Don't forget to grease the new ones, they come with very little grease installed.

Windshield wipers stopped working on 1998 Nissan Sentra. Is it a fuse problem? If so, where is fuse box and which fuse? Is it a motor problem? is this an easy diy fix?


Water can enter and displace the grease in the wiper arm linkage ball joint where the wiper linkage attaches to the wiper motor linkage.

This can result in gradual wear over a period of time inside the joint that could lead to the separation of the wiper linkage assembly from the wiper motor linkage at the ball joint. A loss of windshield wiper function can result when this separation occurs.

To prevent grease from being washed out of the joint, the dealers will modify by adding a water diversion seal that will prevent water from entering the windshield wiper linkage ball joint area.
