Oops, Axle And Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy




What do you think about this video?

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.

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.

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.

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

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" 

Everett Leonard: nice hammer Eric... I got one just like it except its 4lbs and has a 4foot pipe on it.

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

LOLWHUTMAIFRIEN: that. tire. is. gone.

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

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 

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.

Webberdock: according to tire condition, driver is kamikaze

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

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! 

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...?

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

Petr Miškeřík: Such a great video... God bless ETCG. Thanks Eric, i can't sleep so I over and over playing your videos. Thanks for them. Btw. This is not to say that the videos were dull and drowsy me :D !!!!

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

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 press. 

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

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

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

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

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

Alome Chanthasinh: Nice!!!

David Lim: Hello +EricTheCarGuy do you not use torque wrenches? Is there a reason if you don't?

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

Tan V: Very good video and clear,thanks

Chanh Phung: Great video.Thank you Eric

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

joe chicano: Lol

phuturephunk: Anyone else go OH!!! after he said "Well obviously there's a tire issues..but..more importantly" BOOM broken half shaft.

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

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!!!!! 

juan aragon: Awesome video man. 

karlos6628: Eric the car guy-thanks for sharing your knowledge -your videos are so helpful.

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

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.

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 

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 did.

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. 

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.

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????

Madiah Stroupe: informative

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

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.
