Take the clips off inside of the 2 cups that are still there. Lay down driveshaft down, get a socket that is just a little smaller than the cap. If you have a vise put the driveshaft in it because you are going to be hitting on it with a hammer. You take socket and put it on the cap, and pound the cap and socket down thur. You can then take that cap off. Now pound the u-joint back the other way, till that cap off then take out joint.

How to change upper ball joint on 93 suburban 2500 4x4


Inspect/Test/Service/Replace Removing Ball Joint Tapers from the Steering Knuckle
The ball joint is connected to the steering knuckle with a tapered connection, called a steering taper, which is also used in other steering connections.

Another way of "breaking" the taper is to use a large hammer.
  • First, remove the cotter pin from the ball joint nut and loosen the nut several turns.
  • Position the vehicle so that the coil spring is pushing on the ball joint. This could require lifting the vehicle or allowing its weight to rest on the wheels.
  • Use a hammer to pound sharply on the steering knuckle on the outside of the taper. this will deform the taper and spring pressure will separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle.
Removing the Ball Joint from the Control Arm
A ball joint can be retained by one of several methods.

Some manufacturers require you to replace the entire control arm assembly if a ball joint is to be replaced. In these cases, the ball joint and control arm are made as a single assembly and individual parts are not available.
If the control arm has been removed from the vehicle, a pressed-fit ball joint can be removed using a standard hydraulic press. when the control arm is still on the car, a special press set allows the removal and replacement of these ball joints. some pressed-fit ball joints have a spot weld that holds them in place. this must be carefully removed. when a replacement ball joint is installed, a snap ring often takes the place of the weld.
NOTE Be sure the grease release hole in the new ball joint's rubber boot is aimed away from the brakes.

How can i replace the ball joint on my ford fiesta 02 model , it is rivetted on the lower arm.


Front suspension parts eventually wear out, but this sudden onset of slop in your ball joint probably means a lubrication failure. But wait! you say. My ball joints are sealed--there's no grease fitting to pump fresh lubricant into. They're Lubed For Life, like it says right here in the owner's manual.You've just discovered the true life span of a permanently lubed suspension joint. The lubrication finally dries out, water intrudes inside the boot covering the moving parts, and rust and abrasive road dirt turn a ball joint or tie rod end into a loosey-goosey accident waiting to happen. Do not delay in repairing a failing ball joint or tie rod end. When it fails, the wheel involved will try to part company with your vehicle, and not quite succeed in doing so. This will precipitate two unfortunate events: loss of control at some speed, and considerable damage to the rest of the vehicle.If your vehicle has a strut-type suspension, or any other type of suspension system that doesn't involve the need to compress the springs and unload the control arms, you can easily replace the worn-out part using simple hand tools. If your vehicle uses upper and lower control arms, you'll need a spring compressor. You can rent one, but in this case we suggest you shop this procedure out to a professional mechanic. The energy stored in the spring is more than adequate to put a hurtin' on you. If the spring compressor slips, parts will fly out of the wheel well at ballistic velocities--probably right at an important part of your body, like your face.Some vehicles, particularly high-end cars, use a sophisticated rear-end suspension setup that may use ball-type joints, and the principles we're talking about here may apply. As always, consult the shop manual for specificsOne suggestion: If one joint has failed, the other is probably not far behind. As long as you have the tools out and your hands dirty, you may as well do both sidesWe recommend purchasing aftermarket premium-quality ball joints. Odds are they will outlast the OEM parts because they almost always have a grease fitting installed.

The cv joint keeps popping out of the transmission


That doesn't tell us why

If you just worked on it, the axle wasn't
installed into the transaxle far enough

The circle clip is either missing or not
popped into the differental,in which case
you really shouldn't be able to put the
axle in far enough to assemble the rest
of the suspension

So we're not getting the whole story from you
