CV Joints 2000 Hyundai

3 posts in this topic

I need to change both joints on my daughters Hyundai Elantra. Is this a straight forward procedure of splitting the lower ball joints getting the spindles out of the way and removing and replacing the shafts? Or is the devil in the details. I have a fork and access to a hoist today and tomorrow. Thanks.

Thats pretty much it. I would not use a fork on the ball joints. More than likely you will ruin the dust boots if you do. The joint can be separated from the knuckle buy using a long pry bar and prying down on the lower control arm while smacking the knuckle where the ball joint mates with it.

Other than that make sure you torque the axle nut or you will ruin the wheel bearings. An easy way to do this is to put the lug nuts on the studs and tighten them to secure the rotor (the tire is still off the car). Place a large punch into the cooling fins of the rotor either above or below the caliper or in the center opening of the caliper if accessible. The punch will rest on the caliper and keep everything from moving while you tighten the axle nut with a torque wrench.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
