Great tutorials these, but i would have certainly cleaned up those threads from rust before undoing and putting back in. the rust on top of that track rod end thread before you undid it made that nut hard to come off, even with the air gun. nice demo tho. cheers.

John Johnson says:

Good video good quality music

frank peach says:

Great vid. Did mine today. However mine didnt come off as easy as yours lol. But i got there. Cheers

Scott Bade says:

Anything on a 2012 Focus?

Abbas bin Firnas says:

There's a new invention called "torque wrench"…get one.

ajb07 says:

I'd have to give up at 00:50 until I'd found the key socket for the security nut holding the alloys on…. hey ho…

andrew mcdonald says:

At no point did you torque any of the bolts/nuts. A windy guns ok but how do you know there tight enough or even over tight.


Just changed both of mine. That you so much autodoc saved me over £150 on labour. Only thing I could find was hard to do was the tightness of the bolts.

And regarding tracking rod I did move it had to because it is really hard to get the wishbone back into place.

fred richardson says:

always easier when you have a lift

Simon H says:

Just done this on may car. It is much harder than the video shows, especially if you have rusty bolts to contend with. Also on my car (2.0 Titanium petrol) you need to remove the cover on the aircon pump otherwise you cannot get the front bolt out from the driver side arm. Also the Undertray needs to come off first, and those rear bolts can be a PITA to line up.

Hammy135 says:

Tightening torque specs would be good. I Love this music

Anthrop illogical says:

Good video/demo. Very very very annoying background “music”

Stewart McDonald says:

I've got the same car but at 3.30 on the front wishbone bolt he's got a clear view, I don't, there's a pulley in front of mine and had to loosen the cover to get the bolt out….and only just cleared it. It'll be bloody tricky getting it back in with the new arm on.

tech man says:

Does this guy EVER us a torque wrench ? FYI Always use the ring end of a spanner. Broken knuckles really hurts apparently. Nice clear vid though.

bent540 says:

where do i buy the "special puller"?

RC Oliver says:

At 2:02 the spanner is a 21mm, not a 17mm. i was replacing mine and i only had 17mm spanner and i had to put everything back together to drive and buy a 21mm. by the way, it would be nice if you did videos on Volvo S40/V50/c30/c70

rothdareal says:

What is a removal tool number?

Miguel Ortega says:

is possible to perform this job without air tools?

Phen0mable says:

Don't need to touch your tracking rod

douglas dickson says:

just a quick question, why do you tighten the bolt then jack it up then tighten again.

Encantada-vacation says:

What a great way to show how easy this is. Thank you


Goodbye Haynes manual and hello Autodoc! By far, this has to be the best video tutorial for performing mechanical work on a car! The attention to detail is second to none. Sincerely, a great job. Just one question…what is the official name of that 'special puller' so that I can look to buy one?

german konarev says:

Good one! Stahlwille tools used for the repairs?

web says:

One of the best car repair videos I've seen. A little less talk, a lot more action. Perfect man's video. However, let's be real here gentlemen… if you live in any of the winter-road salt-ridden areas of the country, those last bolts may not come off that easy. I tried an impact wrench with supposedly 1000+ ft. lbs. of reverse torque and that last bolt would not budge on a 2002 Focus. Ended up using two 24 in. breaker bars to break it loose. One on top, tied to other parts to keep it from turning, and one on bottom with an additional 2 ft. pipe along with all the strength I could muster. Otherwise you may end up having to grind them off with a high-speed grinder.
