Question about 2008 Highland Highland Outback

1 Answer

Raer tire bolt

I live in a rural area and the dealer is a long ride. My chain needs to be tightened and I don't have any new cotter pins to use (holds the nuts in place for the rear tire). Is it safe to reuse the cotter pins rather than wait on a chain that is too loose? I don't have any damage from the loose chain but don't want to push it either.

How do i remove the hub assembly from the front wheel of my 2001 dodge ram RWD?


  • Jack up your Dodge Ram. Block the wheels to keep it from rolling as you work. Get started by removing the first tire and wheel assembly. Remove the hub extension and the brake caliper as well as the caliper adapter.
  • Remove the grease cap, cotter pin, nut lock, nut, washer and outer wheel bearing. Now, pull the old rotor off of the spindle. Clean the area with a damp cloth to remove any debris. Pack the wheel bearings with grease.
  • Install the new rotor and hub onto the spindle. Replace the outer wheel bearing, washer, and then the retaining nut. Torque the nut to 30 to 40 ft. lbs. while rotating the hub and rotor. Then tighten the nut and install the nut lock and a new cotter pin.
  • Clean the grease cap and then coat it with new wheel bearing grease and replace the cap. Put the caliper adapter back into place and then tighten the two mounting bolts with a torque wrench. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  • Repeat this process for each additional rotor and then lower the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts and test drive your Dodge Ram to make sure that the installation was successful.

    Are motorcyles usually this cantankerous? Now the chain came off. I put it back on, but need to know how to take out the slack so it can be driven safely to town (30 miles) to get a new rear tire.


    Loosen the bolt on the rear axle after removing the cotter pin holding the bolt in place. Adjust the chain tension by rotating the adjuster cams on the left and right side of the wheel. See diagram below. Set the two adjusters evenly to keep the wheel inline on the swingarm. Retighten the axle nut and put the cotter pin back in place. Have the parts department look at the rear sprocket. Chances are the sprocket is worn out also. If it is, the front sprocket will be worn out also. Worn out sprockets will cause your new chain to wear out quickly. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

    How do i tighten the chain on my 2002 vfr800 vtech, it seems a bit loose and i can hear it dragging


    Set the bike on its center stand, then loosen the rear axle by removing cotter pin from hex nut and loosening the nut. There are two adjustment bolts, with lock nuts - one on each side of the rear axle. They are easily work with from the rear of the bike. Loosen the lock nuts and turn the adjustment bolts clockwise. this will draw the rear axle (wheel) backwards - tightening the chain. Take care to turn each side the same amount, so the rear wheel remains straight. Usually the flex in the chain should be about a quarter inch. After adjusting, tighten lock nuts to hold position of rear axle and tighten the axle nut, replace cotter pin.

      NOTE Check the wheel bearings for sufficient grease.
    6. Remove the cotter pin and retaining washer. Back off the spindle nut. Discard the cotter pin.
    7. Adjust the wheel bearings as follows:
      1. Tighten the spindle nut to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) while rotating the brake disc clockwise to seat the wheel bearings.
      2. Back off the nut 2 full turns.
      3. While rotating the disc counterclockwise, tighten the nut to 17-24 ft. lbs. (23-34 Nm).
      4. Back off the spindle nut about 1 / 2 turn.
      5. Tighten the spindle nut to 17 inch lbs. (2 Nm).

    8. Install the retaining washer so the castellations are aligned with the cotter pin hole. Install a new cotter pin.
    9. Check the wheel and tire assembly for proper rotation, then install the grease cap. If the wheel still does not rotate properly, inspect and clean or replace the wheel bearings and cups.
    10. Install the wheel cover, if equipped.
    11. Lower the vehicle.
    12. Road test the vehicle and check for proper operation.
