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.

    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results.

    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
