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.
ArmaAceChannel: how many pounds torque impact wrench is ideal for this?
Everett Leonard: nice hammer Eric... I got one just like it except its 4lbs and has a 4foot
pipe on it.
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.

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.
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"
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.
B Ann: That tire looked as good as that junk rotor .
I think its time for the scrap yard .
Jason Burt: best way to prevent this is to use OEM parts.
steve buhler: hey eric! might wanna revamp on your quick reference their.. An impact on
the main "brass" bolt that holds the hub needs to have torque wrench.. HE
HE Thats what is what messed up my bearing!!!!!
RUSSIAN TANK: HONDA SUCKS BALLS!!! ALL THESE PARTS JUST FOR THE FRONT SUSPENSION AND
NONE OF THEM MENT TO LAST!! HERE GOES THE MYTH ABOUT HONDA'S RELIABILITY.
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
Petr Miškeřík: Such a great video...
God bless ETCG.
Thanks Eric, i can't sleep so I over and over playing your videos. Thanks
Btw. This is not to say that the videos were dull and drowsy me :D !!!!
aaron bugge: Those ball joints go in easier if you freeze the ball joint and heat up the
knuckle it will just slip right in no hammer needed
Jason Burt: Eric, next time you press a bearing surface coat it in rubbing alcohol, it
will slide right in....
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!
shadow0imposter: DOINK!!!! AW SWEET!!!! haha lol
Justice Agyeman: Eric how are u man,i need to change my 05 honda element passenger side
axle,i was wondering if you could please make a video on that. THANKS MAN
grebocille .grebocille: Any advice on wheel shake being that it could also be a steering gear box?
Peter Wallace: What about if there is ABS what do you do with the ABS line on the spindle
part to remove it to put in the new ball joint????
Tan V: Very good video and clear,thanks
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...?
juan aragon: Awesome video man.
karem mosa: ok good
Chanh Phung: Great video.Thank you Eric
Katsu Wolf: you said if the car has vibrations or shakes on the steering wheel it has
what particular problems? my datsun 280ZX turbo does that. also its been
sluggish during acceleration, i looked at it and thought it could be gasket
leaks maybe? it sputters when trying to accelerate with little backfire.
john amari: I just changed out the cv axel on my 96 accord the same way you did on the
video but the clutch lost its pressure I'd like to know the reason and how
to fix that I also put new transmission fluid in it
Roland Anderson: Sometimes I miss my honda. Fixing other stuff never goes as smoothly.
Edit: a week later I'm changing 40 year old ball joints on an old GM. This
sucks. (also replacing control arm bushings). Although your video gives me
hope for being able to do it with a hammer. Don't see why I should go buy a
Tiffany Allen: Will this be similar to the 6 cylinder 2005 Kia Optima?
eksster: Thank you for your excellent video quality/ style and work of course.
Modfydsubi STi: Thx. I needed this video. Also your 101 noises video is awesome too. I
appreciate your time, as much of us probably do. Thx again!
Koppakuoriainen: How can you tell if the balljoint is bad before this happens? I guess you
can hear som noise but can you fysiclly (if that is a word) feel or see
that it is bad?
David Lim: Hello +EricTheCarGuy do you not use torque wrenches? Is there a reason if
jonathanyip343: Man, you make it look so easy.
kyle monroe: lol, and another thing, hope you dont blow a ball joint and rip your cv
shaft out while crossing train tracks and getting stuck on them, like i
Alome Chanthasinh: Nice!!!
phuturephunk: Anyone else go OH!!! after he said "Well obviously there's a tire
issues..but..more importantly" BOOM broken half shaft.
NETWizzJbirk: Seems that customer also needs a new tire and obviously an aliment after
the suspension work.
Madiah Stroupe: informative
karlos6628: Eric the car guy-thanks for sharing your knowledge -your videos are so
Charles B: Really like your vids very informative and helpful, keep up the good work
Webberdock: according to tire condition, driver is kamikaze
James Machalik: Rebuilt axle=junk!
That_Green_Waldo: Another gem, thanks E!
marcbeau1982: How did I know it was an accord?
freakin1random: If the tire is loose along its z axis (i.e. the way the wheel normally
turns with the steering wheel), then what should I look for?
curvenut: Eric, I just installed a new ball joint, one month old, an the boot of the
ball joint is already torn. Could you make a video on how to change the
boot of a Accord 1996 lower ball joint ??? or any car ? Is it worth it to
change the boot ? is it easy ?? Thanks
diego juarez: good job man.
