It takes a very firm push to snap it in place. There's a strong spring to hold it in and provide friction to keep the GPS in position. Get a good grip and push the ball into the socket firmly, with a slight twisting action.

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.
f57-19.gif A ball joint taper. Courtesy of Moog Automotive, Inc. To remove a ball joint requires the use of a ball joint remover.
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.

I can't figure out how the two pieces of the window mount fit together. Do you have an illustration of how it assembles?


Hello,

The arm of the Garmin G-Ball Suction Mount snaps into the back of the cradle.
You can see a picture of it here.

Replace c-v joint


  • Raise and support the vehicle on jack stands. Using the ½-inch air gun, remove the wheels. Use the wire cutters to remove the cotter pin in the lower ball joint.

  • Unscrew and remove the two bolts holding the caliper to the mounting bracket. The bolts run through the caliper from the engine side. Remove the caliper, but do not let it hang by its hose.

  • Use a wrench to take the nut off of the lower ball joint. Insert the ball joint removal tool in between the spindle and the lower control arm. Hit the tool with the hammer until the ball joint comes loose.

  • Use the ½-inch air gun and the proper socket to remove the large nut on the end of the CV axle. This is the one in the center of the rotor. Push the axle in toward the engine slightly, just to make sure it is loose. If it is not loose, tap it with a hammer.

  • Use the ½ inch air gun and an 18mm socket to remove the two large bolts in the base of the strut where it is attached to the spindle. Pull the spindle from the strut to separate the two.

  • Grab the rotor and lift the lower ball joint out of the spindle. Pull the CV joint out of the spindle and then place the lower ball joint on the spindle back into the lower control arm to hold it there.

  • Insert the pry bar between the inner CV joint and the transmission. Use a fast yank on the pry bar to pry the CV joint from the transmission.

  • Insert the new CV joint into the transmission as far as it will go by hand. The CV joint has a snap ring on the end that is going in the transmission. It gives a little resistance to going in. Use both hands and pull the outer end out about 1 inch and then slam it in toward the engine. This quick movement will get the CV joint to seat in the transmission. Check to make sure that the CV joint is all the way in before proceeding--look at the distance between the CV joint and the transmission.

  • Insert the outer end of the CV shaft into the spindle and rotate the rotor slightly to get the splines to line up. Push it in until the tip of the axle begins to come out the outside of the spindle enough to get the large nut on. Put the large nut on a couple of turns. Put the nut back on the lower ball joint but do not tighten it yet.

  • 0

    Push the spindle back into the lower mounting point on the strut and insert the two large bolts and nuts. Use the ½-inch air gun to tighten securely. Use a wrench to tighten the nut on the lower ball joint. Insert the cotter pin below the nut for safety.

  • 11

    Tighten down the large axle nut securely with the ½-inch air gun. Put the brake caliper back on and insert the two bolts through the caliper and tighten. Replace the wheels and the lug n

    How do you change the wing mirror on a vauxhall combo van 2003 complete unit


    Lucky You, I can’t wait to get back to Europe, home actually, anyways your vauxhall 2003 combo van. Take your door panel off, start with armrest, unscrew it, these screws are right under the area you would be resting your arm on, this area is seen by large holes, these can be deep so a long medium Philips should be used.

    Nest is door handle to unlock door, you have plastic cover or metal, some have a small screw or slots to fix it securely. Unscrew or use a thin small screw driver to gently pull each slot from panel or lock mechanism. Now your window is most likely manual, so I will explain this first, two ways these are secured, the handle you use to roll window up and down, a screw right in the middle, just unscrew or a ring clip, this is between the door panel and handle and is removed by a special tool made to do this or a screw driver on one side of clip, a quick tap with your hand on top ot screw driver or by prying from the top of the inside of ring between gear and clip.

    Your door panel uses snaps generally, but some have screws where snaps would be as well, around the outer edges of the door panel , if snaps are used gently use a wide instrument rather the your fingers, this can break fittings of panel, so use a wide flat instrument, a large screw driver or a mini crow bar used to pull nails.

    If speakers are mounted, be careful not to rip speaker wires, just pull the wire fasteners from the side of magnet, remember their location so you reinstall them correctly.

    Now with a flashlight look under and up to see your mount base for wing window, remove the fasters and pay attention to the top pivot for wing window, most of them are pins and easily removed by a slightly sideways downward slowly pulling down, careful not to bend pivot slot or pivot pin. Some have also been secured by a screw on the top of door frame where pivot is mounted. Which is an obvious dismantling procedure, remove fastener, usually a screw, another Philips of some sort star screw or an alien screw. That’s it now your wing window should be free and in your hands. The reverse to install a new wing window. Good luck

    How do I attach my garmin to my dash mount?


    The Garmin Nuvi 255w comes with a three piece dash mounting kit. A round disk smooth on one side tape on the other to affix to the dash (most dashes ar textured and the suction cup will not hold to textures) a suction cup arm with a ball end, and a bracket with a receiver for the ball. Snap the bracket and arm together, this can take a little effort. mount the disk to your dash in a place that doesn't obstruct your view of the road. then place the arm/bracket on the disk and push the lever down creating suction to hold the mount to the dash.
    Another option it the beanbag dash mounts that hold the arm without sticking to your dash.

    Front wheel bearings


    to remove the hub and bearing assy. you need to remove the tire and wheel, brakes, cv axle, then unbolt the lower ball joint, and remove the lower strut mounting bolts. I believe theirs two on this model after removing the hub & bearing assembly the hub must be removed by using a hydraulic press to press the hub from inside the bearing as they are a machined fit. then typically there is a large snap ring holding the bearing into its bore that needs to be removed before the bearing can be pressed out at the hydraulic press install is reverse of removal.

    How to snap the ball in the window mount on garmin 350 gps


    It takes quite a bit of effort to get the ball into the socket on the cradle in the first instance. On pg 57 of the Owner's Manual it describes and has a picture of Removing The Cradle from the Mount by turning it to one side and states "To replace the cradle, snap the cradle on the ball socket." It seems to be easier if you also turn to cradle to one side to snap the ball in - at least such is the case with mine.
