How did you get the axle out? I've been fighting with the **** ball joint for hours. Absolutely will not break free. And I can't seem to get enough room to push the axle out of the splines in the wheel hub without that.
Yes, pcv...couldn't remember if that or turbo drain.How did you get the axle out? I've been fighting with the **** ball joint for hours. Absolutely will not break free. And I can't seem to get enough room to push the axle out of the splines in the wheel hub without that.
The drain bolt you're speaking of is probably the PCV breather - has a stupid tamper proof bolt on it?
Oh, I know full well - my '81 Z28 spent its entire life up until 2016 in the Los Angeles area - taking that vehicle apart is a comparative dream than all of our other cars (the oldest of which is my '07 Cobalt - though it hasn't seen winter usage since probably 2013).It's first 2 yrs were NE ohio, then moved here.
People outside the rust belt have no idea the fun they are missing 😅
Have the timing belt and tools in a box too. Will be ready in about 20k miles so I ordered while IDparts had a sale. When I ordered the pickup parts I didn't know if I was going to have time to wait for the euro version.Awesome work, I wanted to tackle this task my self as well. But I’ll be going out of town for a week so I’ll have my mechanic do this while he does the timing belt. I opted for adapter with viton orings vs the original seal
I'll have to check PN of the gaskets.TY for sharing guys. I suspect I'll be doing this sometime soon since I have a few other seeping issues I want to address.
What are the part numbers for the exhaust gaskets?
Don't use nyloc on exhaust. Gets too hot. Look for "flange lock nuts" or "serrated flange nuts".Looks like there is one nearby - that's a good resource to have. I can't really tell if the stock nuts have any kind of nyloc in there or something, but some kind of M8-1.25 flange nuts should do the trick for the DPF, correct? Out back, I assume it should just be an M8 bolt (with a washer) and flange nut.
Do we know the part number for the ball joint bolt and nut? It's TTY so we technically shouldn't reuse it, and I obliterated the end of mine anyway (I could file it down as it isn't into the threads). I am seeing 11518632 from another thread - should be the same bolt as the gassers since they use the same control arm.
Are you replacing any of the intermediate shaft sealing rings? I couldn't actually find them in the shaft where they seemed to be pointed out in the service manual.
