Question about Garden

1 Answer

I want to replace the ball bearings on my Pixie. I have removed the machine from the base, removed the far-right nut on the shaft. Do I need to remove the 4 fasteners holding the plastic housing to the shaft? If so, how do I do that? I've tried a square-end screw driver; it grips on 3 of the 4 fasteners, but does not turn. I don't want to break anything. What do I do next?

You need to loosen the screws with an extra long allen wrench.

How to change center bearing on drive shaft for a Hyundia tusion 2005

First that bearing is pressed on(around $30, plus the part). You have to remove the shaft and find some place that will take it off and put it back on. Second, you need the tools to do the job. The socket to remove the axle nut is $25+. Also need a 1/2 inch breaker bar. And a big hammer. Plus a socket set. Remove the tire, remove the axle nut, remove the lower ball joint, pull the spindle back and drive/push out the axle, remove the axle out of the bearing to be replaced, remove the nuts on the bearing, to get the intermittent axle out, Take it some where to get the bearing replaced. Then re install.

Bad front wheel bearings

I have a 95 Prizm and replaced my bearings. the front wheel bearings are a real pain and requires a press.

loosen the half shaft nut. jack the car up and secure with jack stand, take the wheel off, remove the nut on the half shaft, disconnect the strut from the hub, disconnect the lower ball joint, disconnect the tie rod end (i use a pitman arm puller), you should now be able to remove the hub. unless you have a press and press skills take the hub and new bearing kit to a machine shop with a press and make sure they install the new seals and retaining clip on back side of hub. when installing hub with new bearing make sure you use the right torque specs..

alternate idea, pull the hubs from a junk yard and replace bearings on these, install on your vehicle it minimizes vehicle down time

final thoughts, use penetrating oil on all fasteners days before starting work and day of work. might be a good time to replace lower ball joins

Bosch demolition hammer bearings are ceased up, how can I remove it properly to replace?

Ok here goes. Purchase or use the bearing cover nut 3613461500 that you have taken from the base of the machine. and drill a 6mm hole in it. remove the armature from the machine and measure how far the end of the armature sticks out of the bearing. then fit the cover nut onto the bearing holder and whilst supporting the cover nut use a puller or press to press the armature off the bearing through the cover nut. Replace the bearing in the holder and press the bearing and holder back onto the armature until the amount of armature shaft showing is to the same distance that measured in the first place. Hope this helps.

Need instructions on how to change cv axle

ok raise the car and support the car by the BODY PINCH WELDS BEHIND THE FRONT WHEELS
remove the wheel
remove the DRIVE AXLE NUT 1 5/16 i think
remove the ball joint nut 18mm
seperate the ball joint from the steering knuckle
grab the brake caliper and pull to remove the drive axle from the hub bearing i always remove the brake flex line bracket bolt less chance of damaging the brake line
once the drive axle is out of the bearing use a pry bar and pop the other end of the shaft out of the transmission(give the pry bar a quick snap and it should pop right out
that's it remove the old shaft and install the new one and reassemble
hope this helps

Change ball bearings

If you are talking about the front wheel hub bearings you have to do quite a bit of work but I'll walk you through it because these bearings are pressed in and will have to be pressed out and back in. Jack the front end of the car up and remove the wheels, remove the brake caliper and rotor. Remove the axle nut from the center of the hub you will have to undo the lower ball joint and take it loose from the spindle, remove the bolts from the strut to the spindle, tap and the end of the shaft with the nut in place so as not to mess up the threads on the shaft. Take to a machine shop and have them pressed out and the new ones in.

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
