Re: quick axle help please

well somehow you need to unbolt the knuckle from either the UCA or LCA. do either one, flip the knuckle outta the way, can slide the axle out.

Re: quick axle help please

remove cotter pin and lower ball joint nut, it's a 17mm i believe. hammer the knuckle REALLY hard wile avoiding the threads. you can also get a balljoint or tie rod separator tohelp you get it off. once this nut is off you have sufficient room to tap the axle and get it out of the spindle and trans.

you do not want to remove the 2 upper bolts holding the control arm to the strut because there is a bit of play there and it will mess with your camber angle and alignment unless you put it back EXACTLY the same

Re: quick axle help please

forgot to tell you, you need to also remove the nut off of the longggg bolt that connects the fork to the control arm. then you pull the control arm down and slip the axle in between the fork and the arm and pull it out

Re: quick axle help please

correct. that has to come off and you pull the control arm away from the fork, the axle slips right between them easily

Re: quick axle help please

Re: quick axle help please

yup there was no need to unbolt the tie rod. fail haha


you undid the strut fork, which is a start, but judging by your other thread, your having trouble w/ the castle nut. looks like ur gonna hafta cut it off if its completely rounded off.

Required parts;
-sindle nut
-36mm (?) socket
-axle
-cotter pins for the two ball joints

IF YOU TEAR A BOOT;
balljoint boot of suspect
"C" clip to hold boot
-Packing grease

I cannot emphasize how important it is to fix the ball joint boots it you **** them up!

(Before you begin drain the trans!)
WITH THE CAR ON THE GROUND;
1. Remove the center cap from the wheel (if you have solid wheels or your like me and didn't wanna ruin the finish put a steel or spare wheel on for now, your spare tire will be helpfull or if you have an extra blade like me )
2. get your big honkin' socket and a pry bar with a cheeter bar, drink a beer and give it the old HOO HAA! - it takes guts, make sure the bent tab on the spindle nut it bent up, use a screwdriver in the slot to ensure it is up
3. jack it up and remove the wheel.
4. Remove the cotter pin from the upper ball joint and then the castle nut.
spray with penetrating fluid and then get your hammer, Hit the sides of the spindle top (the cast iron) yes hit it, give it alot of good hits, if this has been removed for being dropped like him 5 good hits will drop it, remember if your castle nut was on for 200k miles it's ganna take a while!
5. remove the lower ball joint cotter pin and castle nut, this is where the pickle fork comes in, it's almost inevitable that you'll rip this boot with a pickle fork so go order the parts from honda to fix it, they know what youre talking about!
6. remove the suspension fork, yeah it's gonna get in your wan, its a 14 for the shock holder and 2 17's for the bottom bolt, YOU DO NOT NEED TO REMOVE THE SHOCK!
7, lift the sindle up and toward the door (it kinda rests there.)
8. my boots both ripped on the passanger side so i pulled the axle into 3 pars which made it convienient to remove. i HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY going to the store and getting a new trans axl seal! it will stop leaks on your drive and youre already in there!!!
9. after installing your new seal (hopefully) push the TRANSMISSION side into the trans, you'll need to give it an UMPF! i needed to tap mine in so i threaded on the old spindle nut and tapped her in, it has a lock ring so it kinda snaps in!
10. put the spindle into the lower BJ and with the spine lubed with white lithium slide it in. yes white lithium the spline that goes into the spindle, makes easy sliding and helps protect the splines from rust, thats all the drives the car so keep em nice!
11. castle nut the lower bj so it doesnt fall, it will kind of lean to the left or right which is fine. at this point thread on the new spindle nut
12. reattach the suspension fork over the new cv joint
13.pull the UCA down and castle and cotter that one.
14. Make sure everything is tight and cotter pinned, then put your ****ty wheel on, from here grab that HUGE socket again and wail on that bitch until she comes tight as hell.
15, a metal chisel is prefered but i've done it with a screw driver. hit the slotted part with the tip of the chisel so it bends into the slot, your cv is now locked, change your nice wheel back on and youre done!

16. Go smoke the tires.

i found the meguires wheel cleaner works the best on the grease, it comes in a purple bottle.

Yes, i am god and that took forever, youre welcome!
i know alot for being 17

Re: quick axle help please

ok here is how i did mine when it was rusted. hit the axel with wd 40 then put spindle nut back on the cv just enough to thread it then get a sludge hammer and hit the nut you will need a new nut though but thats not a big deal.
