Question about 2000 Acura TL
I need to replace my front wheel bearings and have to take them to a shop to be pressed in but have no clue what he needs or how to get it off. I need to know what to take to the mechanic at the shop and how to put it together once I have it pressed. Please help! I'm broke and can't afford a mechanic!
You need to take them the knuckle. This is what the brake calliper, the wheel studs, the upper and lower ball joints, and the axle half shaft all connect to. Start with the axle nut. It's pretty big and might have a cotter pin through it. I say that because it's the tightest bolt and you can use the brakes to hold it from just spinning the wheel. There is one castle nut per ball joint, should have a cotter pin through them, take them off and beat the ball joint out with a hammer, don't hit the stud or you'll never get the nut back on. Two bolts on the brake calliper. once you have all that off give the end of the axle a few whacks until it's free. Don't go pulling on it or you'll separate the CV joint in the half shaft.
