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. If you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check out this article I wrote on the topic. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/diagnosing-noises-in-your-car Video on CV boot replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S-ofMoWsr0 The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content 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.

Replacing an Accord Wheel Bearing - EricTheCarGuy
Replacing an Accord Wheel Bearing Ok, here it is finally. A few of you have requested this procedure so here it is. As I said in the video I normally use a different method of removing the hub from the bearing assembly by using a slide hammer. I also normally use a press to reinstall the hub into the new bearing instead of hitting it with a hammer. Life is not perfect and we sometimes have to improvise as I did here. I know a few of you will ask about the size fasteners that I used to hammer the bearing out, I used hardened (8.8) 10x1.25 bolts to do the job. I also promised links to the other videos that relate to this one so here they are.

Customer Raves: Headlight Restoration Kit - G1900 "I recently purchased the Headlight Restoration Kit, and all I can say is WOW. I own a 1998 Mustang GT. It's my daily driver. Here in Wisconsin, cars take a beating. The headlights were in really bad shape. I tried another product that I found in a hardware store and it didn't do much. I was contemplating buying new headlight kits. I saw your ad in Autoweek, and watched the demo on your website. I thought I'd give it a try. I am very pleased with the result. The money I spent and the half hour of my time was worth it. I'll be looking for some of your other products to help bring back the exterior finish. If you have suggestions, I'm listening." J.K. -- Sheboygan, WI "I used your Headlight Restoration Kit and it worked really well. I had a lot of build-up on my headlights and I am definitely impressed with how well it worked.
