Bobby Tectalabyss: Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy

punishmentforall: I'm doing this job on a 1993 Honda Accord, and the ball joint hits the hub assy. Honda manual suggests splitting hub and knuckle, but mine is welded on and I don't have long M10 x 1.25mm bolts to break. So I used a die grinder to remove old ball joint, and carefully ground a chamfer on the new ball joint to allow enough clearance to slide in. This does not impact the integrity of the ball joint ... why Honda didn't design this initially is a mystery, or even add as a feature to replacement ball joints.

M Sain_Dinn: Question? After changing the ball joint using your method, Is a wheel alignment needed after?

Bilbo Baggins: thank you for the great video! I am replacing my ball joints on my civic... and glad to know I can just beat em out instead of using a tool. also that I can use the ABS shaft I was sent..even though I don't have ABS...

Ace Carter: this guy is totally awesome!! I would so trust this guy with my car anytime!!

Adam Chamberlain: My cv axle has the same set up as the video with what to me just looks like an extension only to have an half axle on the far end of the trannsmission. With that set up are the left and right cv axles the same? I can find a drivers side half axle. 1996 Accord

Frank Calderon: Nice video bro, especially the "if it's in the air take a look around check things out, check what your vehicle might need next, something loose or worn out" that's good stuff right their. 👍👍

Mike n Holly Smith: N

Linh Tran: love you, all your video are great

ai van: My car makes a click from the right wheel, only at slow speeds turning left. It's like a creak pop. All the brakes are new and bushings and joints, even the struts and links, tie rods. EVERYTHING IS. The axle is new too, It has a lot of play though. I can grab it and it moves in and out about 1-2 cm. Maybe my New axle was bad?

johnsmith65enator: right on man !! ball joint look like i will be able to do myself. thank..

don baek: awesome!! Eric.

Carlos Vasquez: first time Eric thank`s for your help now im going to began working on my car no more expensive repair.

clifton559: this guy sounds like the kid talking in that movie stand by me. when he was telling his storys as a grown up later on. . lol

Xavier M Rivera: want to make a shout out and a huge thank you to Eric. I did everything he did in this video by hammer only and a lot of penetrating oil (WD-40)! I was skeptical at first bc I don't have a big tool collection but I did have the minimum as he showed. I got the ball joints out and replaced in an hour straight. again thank you Eric (The Car Dude)!!!

richv5721: Eric is a joke. Every repair he uses a hammer to remove parts instead of the correct specialty tool. Eric ever heard of a Ball Joint Press, Ball Joint Separator, and a Tie Rod Separator.

Ahmed Khan: Hi Eric Many thanks for all the great videos, I am sure it's not easy to shoot the video and upload, more over stay connected to answer the various queries, again a big thanks, I HAD A QUERY, I FEEL SOUND AND LITTLE VIBRATION WHILE TURNING TO LEFT AT SLOW SPEED, I GOT IT CHECKED THRU TWO, THREE GUYS AND THEY SAY ITS LOWER ARM OR TIE ROD OR CRACK IN STRUT MOUNTING, I HAVE RENAULT KOLEOS 2.5 LTR 2011 MODEL, ITS MADE IN KOREA, APPARENTLY THE ENGINE ON THIS CAR IS NISSAN XTRAIL ENGINE, KNOWING MOSTLY UNDER CHASIS PARTS ARE BY NISSAN ANY COMMENTS OR SUGGESTION FROM YOUR END WOULD BE A GREAT HELP KIND REGARDS ak 

Brandon James: Hey Eric Thank you i am a broke collage student and your videos are the only good ones on Honda accords you have helped me quite a bit thanks again!

TheSamhi: I have a problem with a highlander 2003, I need to replace the front end bearing but I am unable to separate the the ball joints from the control arm, I am trying to reuse the ball joints.

ArmaAceChannel: how many pounds torque impact wrench is ideal for this?

israel5990: you are the best Erick!!

Charles B: Really like your vids very informative and helpful, keep up the good work

All2skitzd: Here is a sarcastic statement I compiled (in good humor) out of reading a bunch of random comments people left (I got to much time on my hands, I didn't read all of them but im surprised no one ripped on that tire) "hey I am a professional mechanic who might or might not own a Honda and watching a repair help video from 2009 and its the later part of 2014, let me tell you what you was doing wrong with that 1990... Get out the torque wrench to tighten then the valve stem covers or the car is doomed. When I work on 1990 Honda's I know the owners must be rich so I make sure and run the tab up so high they could of bought a new one" 

bg147: I saw a professional mechanic replace the drive axle on another video, and when he was trying to install the drive axle, he was yanking like crazy on the hub assembly to create more room. The brake line and what looked to be a cable that ran along the brake line were being seriously stretched. I thought he would have removed the caliper or the bracket that held the brake line down to avoid this.

amar gupta: hello sir thanks for the videos....sir i have got honda city typeZ 2001 model which was gifted by my dad and since then i have feelings attachment with the car.....n i will keep it as long as i live.....i had maintained its condition as good as i can....but always have some trouble with its front axle suspension and its steering stiffness although its a power steering.......so kindly tell me what to do to make it fine 

DailyBrusher: Thanks, Eric. This video is 5 years old, and it's still helping people - like me!

ROB ANDRETTI: DOINK

Jason Burt: best way to prevent this is to use OEM parts.

LOLWHUTMAIFRIEN: that. tire. is. gone.

B Ann: That tire looked as good as that junk rotor . I think its time for the scrap yard .

joe chicano: Lol

Jhony Ramirez: nice tutorial,,cool guy

blaze2051: awesome very informative and good explained videos keep it up with your videos

Mick Carson: On what car are you working on? I am interested in replacing the CV drive shafts of my 2000 Nissan Pathfinder. As I am a qualified motor mechanic, I've never done a Nissan 4x4 before but I would be careful if I am to try it, because I have better tools to remove ball-joints, rather than using a crude and destructive method, a hammer and chisel.

cm0cm: thumbs up for doink

Emmanuel Garcia: That's an issue I'm having wit my 99 Honda CR-V thanks Eric the car guy keep up the good work 

Tiffany Allen: Will this be similar to the 6 cylinder 2005 Kia Optima?

Ron Rich: thanks eric This happened to me on my r/s lower ball joint on 90 accord fortunately no injuries at 40mph wheel did a 90deg. turn, the steering wheel was oscillating severely days prior to it happening... so now I joke... "What does it mean when the steering wheel oscillates severely ? " Whats a fair labor time for two upper balljoints on that 90 accord ? I was charged 3.5hrs. which I thoght was 1.5hr over what was reasonable...?

Jason Burt: Eric, next time you press a bearing surface coat it in rubbing alcohol, it will slide right in....

shadow0imposter: DOINK!!!! AW SWEET!!!! haha lol

Russ Woodward: Great. A nice addition to the manual. Now I've got to debate losing a Saturday to the repair or paying somebody to do it and sleeping in. Hmmmm.

skkfor: ETCG, many thanks for this and all the videos, man. As the result of your vids, I have been able to replace my own CV shaft, change my own trans fluid and diagnose/change tie rod ends. This all equates to major $$$$ savings and kudos from wifey. Seriously, thanks! 

Tan V: Very good video and clear,thanks

NETWizzJbirk: Seems that customer also needs a new tire and obviously an aliment after the suspension work.

grebocille .grebocille: Any advice on wheel shake being that it could also be a steering gear box? 

eksster: Thank you for your excellent video quality/ style and work of course. 

IBRAHIM ALICK Gombanila: bravo for the practicle and technical educative tutorial,thank you and GOD bless

mark richardson: Why don't you invest in a ball joint replacement tool kit. Not that expensive and saves hitting the crap out of it with a a hammer.
