Popping Noise from Strut

There is a strange popping sound coming from my new struts and new bearing plate when I press down on the car. Its worse when going over speed bumps. Sounds like something is going to fall off. I tightened everything and 3 mechanics have tighten things down and it still is like that.

The diagnosis of bad strut bearings can be done trough several symptoms observation : -while getting out of a curve difficulty for the steering to come back centered alone -difficulties to turn the steering wheel while parked -once all front end lifted, difficulty to turn manually the wheels both directions -noises from the hood sides compartment while cruising or running on a bump





Replacing struts
Struts can sometimes be a little scary. That is unless you have the right equipment. They are really pretty simple for the most part. However be sure to use a spring compressor. Here is an example on a Honda. Other vehicles will be basically the same

Changer ses amortisseurs avants.
Vidéo d'illustration montrant la procédure pour donner une idée du travail à faire. Le seul outil spécial nécessaire ici est un compresseur de ressort. Ce travail doit être fait avec les mains et le cerveau. Il y a une tension très grande sur le ressort une fois celui ci comprimé. La compression doit être également répartie sur les deux compresseurs et ils doivent être positionnés de manière symétrique sur le ressort.





How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one.

Replacing Honda Front Struts - EricTheCarGuy
Replacing Honda Front Struts - EricTheCarGuy After posting the last video on replacing struts I thought I would post this one next. I shot this along with the rest of the Accord front end work that I did last fall. A couple of things are different, the most obvious is that the springs are a much smaller diameter so you really need to be careful when you work with these since the spring compressor doesn't have as much to grab hold of. Second, when you install the struts back on the car care must be taken to get the notch on the strut lined up with the wishbone, if you don't do this the upper wishbone bolt will not go in since it has to fit in a groove on the back of the strut. For the second time I've shown you that I tighten the lower wishbone bolt with the car off of the ground, the fact is I shouldn't do this since I'm told it may ruin the bushing that goes through the lower control arm. I believe this to be possible but I have not experienced any problems doing it this way. For me it just seems like a pain in the butt to try and reach around the tire after I've put the wheel back on. But for those of you that like to point out my faults here is my excuse for not doing it the "right" way. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Be safe and stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

How NOT to remove your engine.
Subscribe to my channel, I'm always posting great videos! About this video, I know this is a bad idea. There were some idiots on the turboDodge.com forums suggesting that this was a good idea. I needed to get a blown motor out of my car, so I setup the camera and demonstrated exactly what can go wrong with this method. Honestly, I tried to get it down gracefully, in the end I guess I was lucky it didn't knock the car over in the process. Let this be a lesson to all, use an engine crane. At least in cars where it's not designed to come out the bottom.
