Oops, Axle And Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy




What do you think about this video?

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!!

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?

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)!!!

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 

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

don baek: awesome!! Eric.

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 

Webberdock: according to tire condition, driver is kamikaze

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

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.

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" 

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!

Jhony Ramirez: nice tutorial,,cool guy

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.

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

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.

ROB ANDRETTI: DOINK

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

cm0cm: thumbs up for doink

LOLWHUTMAIFRIEN: that. tire. is. gone.

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

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!!!!!
