Anti Roll Sway Bar Drop Link Replacement Vauxhall Opel
Skip Intro 5:07
I discovered you can change these drop links without jacking up or removing
It took me about an hour as the extra time it takes undoing the nuts is
saved by not removing the wheels.
Turn the steering on full lock and you can get to the nuts while laying on
Remove the top joint first as it helps with removing the bottom one.
I found replacing the nearside easier probably because I'm right handed.
I bought a pair of droplinks off eBay for £11. But they don't look as
strong as the original Vauxhall ones. I'll see how long these last and put
the results here.
This is quite an easy job and stops that annoying knocking noise.
Although this was done on a 2008 1.7CDTi Corsa it should be the same for
most of the Vauxhall range
Honda Accord Sway Bar Bushings Replacement
A fastener by fastener tutorial for replacing the sway bar end bushings and
frame bushings on 94-97 Accords.
The common symptom of a failed sway bar bushing is a clunk or knocking
sound when going over bumps.
When one or more of the donut bushings crack metal to metal contact between
the sway bar and the lower control arm occurs which causes the noise.
For 1994-1997 Accords the bushings are sold separately and are Honda part
number 51314-SM4-020. You will need a total of 8 (4 per side).
In the video I say you can use penetrating oil on the frame bushings to
make them slide on easier. I misspoke. Do NOT use petroleum based
lubricants (such as penetrating oil) on the rubber and only use silicone
based lubricants. Petroleum based lubes will harm the rubber silicone

How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight
turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right
turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are
easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of
what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball
joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I
often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't
know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue
doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake
the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If
you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check
out this article I wrote on the topic.

Removing broken exhaust studs
Broken Exhaust studs seem to be a
predictable problem on older vehicles. Here's the best way I've found to
get them out. By the way, it works on most any kind of broken off bolt as
long as you have enough sticking out where you can get a grip on it.
Also, don't waste time with vise-grips. Get a good quality set of
gripping pliers. You'll be glad you did.
