Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy
Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement Sorry I missed you last week, I had this video half done and didn't get a chance to finish. Well we have our 1990 Accord again, I'm getting some mileage out of this one but I don't mind cause there are still quite a few of these on the road and a few of you have claimed ownership to one of these 4th generation Accords, so enjoy. A couple of things to note, I could do a video on taking out the wishbone bolt alone, I've run into a few problems here such as a rusted bolt that won't come out of it's bushing as one example, perhaps future videos will show how to overcome this problem. I thought this one went together well despite the fact that you might be getting sick of Honda Accords, I still have more from other makes that I haven't edited or posted yet. I have more to this video as well that may show up in DVD form at one point, YouTube only gives me 10min to work with but I think that is enough to get you started and not lose interest. Perhaps you could help by submitting questions in the form of text responses or what I would really like is a video response to something I've put out there, that would be great.

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.

How to Find a Bad Wheel Bearing - EricTheCarGuy
How to Find a Bad Wheel Bearing - EricTheCarGuy Well as I said in the video I shot this some time ago but never posted it. I've been snowed in for a couple of days so I haven't been to the shop to make some new video so I decided to bring this one up from the vault. The idea is to give you some basic information on how to find a bad wheel bearing, replacing it once you find it is another story but diagnosing is the first step. Now, another way to find out if you have a limited slip is to jack up both sides of the car and rotate one of the drive wheels. If the wheel on the opposite side moves in the same direction you probably have a limited slip differential. If the wheel spins in the opposite direction you probably have a regular differential that is not limited slip. As I said in the video a bunch of times be careful doing this, use the parking brake and brace the rear wheels with something. I know you'll do the right thing.
