Remove the brake assy. Remove the rotor. Remove the big axle nut. There should be 3 bolts that hold the hub bearing assy in place. Remove those bolts. Tap the hub bearing assy. off. Pull the axle shaft out.

I am trying to take the lower control arm on the passenger side of a 98 transport. The lower ball joint is being stubborn. I tried ball joint remover tool and not much room to work with and still dont


Lower Control Arm

Print
The lower control arm is a two-piece welded unit with a riveted ball joint. A conventional rubber bushing is used for the rear lower control arm pivot. The front lower control arm bushing is mounted vertically.


REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

Some special tools are required to perform this operation including, a front hub spindle removal tool and a suitable ball joint separator tool.

WARNING Do not hammer or pry ball joint from knuckle. Failure to use recommended tools may cause damage to the ball joint and seal.
See Figure 1

Replacement of wheel bearing 2004 saturn ion


Put the car's front on jackstands(front suspension hanging down) and chock the rear wheels.Remove the tire/wheel.Remove the bolt/nut for the lower balljoint.Remove the cotter pin on the large spindle nut.Remove the nut(you'll need a 1/2 or larger impact gun with the correct impact socket).Dislodge the ball joint from the knuckle(a large punch rapped on the sides of the knuckle hole will help to break it loose).Lower the control arm and pull the knuckle outward(the axle shaft should now slide out).Now you should be able to remove the bolts that retain the bearing assembly.Reassemble in reverse order,thread locking compound on the bolts for the bearing is probably a good idea.

Need to remove 1/2 shaft 89 nazda 323 5spd se to replace shaft seal


Proper procedure would be specific to your Mazda. But, in general: 1) Loosen big axle nut with car on ground. 2)Place car front on jack stands, remove wheel. 3) Remove ball-joint from lower control arm to knuckle. 4) Remove tie rod end from knuckle. Knuckle and spindle assembly should now be free, only except hanging off of strut.5)Remove big axle nut and push axle out of knuckle. If it's stuck, try a solid piece of wood on end of axle, and a sharp hammer blow should free it. If that don't work, get a 2-jaw puller to remove axle from knuckle. Swing knuckle out and remove your half-shaft. May need to pry it from transmission, as may be held in by a small circlip. Careful you don't overextend the CV joints or they'll come apart. A big screwdriver between CV housing and transmission case should pry it out. When putting it back in (if there is a circlip on the transmission end) you need to hear it click or snap to verify circlip is seated. 6) Replace seal, and now you can put it back together. Tighten all removed nuts and bolts back to their proper torque. The big axle nut will take a lot of tightening-about 150-180 ft.lbs., so do that after car is back on ground. Done! One thing I forgot to mention: when you remove axle from transmission, fluid will come out, so have a drain pan ready. And top off transmission with proper fluid or gear oil when finished. Good luck. As said, procedure would be specific for your car, so I'm not positive you need to remove tie rod from knuckle.

How to replace a CV joint 2000 Cavalier Drivers side


Buy the right CV axle. Raise right front of vehicle. Remove wheel. use a lugnut and washers to secure brake rotor so that it is not flopping and trapping rust behind. Remove axle nut. Loosen nuts from outer tie rod end stud and lower ball joint stud almost all the way off, but do not remove them completely. Seperate the studs from knuckles by striking each knuckle with a ball peen hammer. After the tie rod and lower ball joint are seperated from the spindle knuckles, pry down on lower control arm and push end of axle through hub toward transaxle until hub and spindle assembly is free from axle/CV joint. Place drain pan under transmission. Carefully place pry bar between innner CV joint and transmission and pop axle assembly loose. Install new axle in reverse of the dissassembly.

Need instructions to replace front passengers side cv joint


Do yourself a favor and replace the whole cv shaft. Quicker, eaiser and not much money. First get the car in the air and remove the wheel. Then pop the lower ball joint. This is done by unbolting it from the knuckle and using a ball joint seperator fork and a hammer. Then remove the spindle nut on the end of the cv shaft. You push down on the lower A arm pulling the ball joint out of the knuckle and push the cv shaft out of the hub. Once these are dislogged, you can movel the strut and hub out of the way and pull the cv shalt out of the trans axle. Push the new one in and reverse what you did.

Remove front axle from differential on 2003 dodge ram


That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings
