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.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.      
    •   The 20" box fan thread was very informative, and lasted for years....
    • Possibly but it seems like the Democrats are now in the beginning stages of floating single payer. Lots of talk on that since the neocons dropped the ball
    • Kinda like the Eskimo thread on I.S. some years back?
