I'll state this now, I live in sweden and using the nordic keystyle to type so forgive me for grammer.

I currently own a 92 honda civic and for some odd reason the front driver wheel hub is differemt and wouldn't fit my winter steel rims. when I was putting bqck my summer tire two bolts stripped.. so I went to junk yard and they gave the the entire thing, disc, brakes, rotors, wheel hub, the arms, etc for 80$ I got this to change out wheel hub to fit my steelie and to fix the stripped bolts at the samw time.

the part I hate so f ing much is the two stupid screw bolts holding on the disc! ivw taken them off before on other cars but these... give me some tips! don't wamt to drill them out or strip them! going to use a torch gun and a hammer to hit the screw dilriver deep in there.

what parts have you guys had difficulty with. I know on my subie I always had problems settinf the intake manifold straight and would take a lot of wiggling or two people to get it straight. post away!


p.s no swearing. I got points because supposebly this is a family forum. .... altho I would believe evetybody on this forum is old enough to drive...

You don't have to ******* worry about that, so long as you don't try to mis-spell the words or do other funny stuff to get around our filter.



As far as your question on the Honda, I am perplexed as to what the problem was. Firstly, the screw on the rotor is totally un-necessary. Drill the bugger out and be done with it. As for why your wheel would not fit, that's really strange. Has someone changed that out in the past? Even if the Honda 4 bolt was changed with an Integra 4 bolt, they're all the same 4x100 pattern. It's why Hondas are such big cars to modify....because you can swap most anything with other Honda stuff. I used to roadrace a CRX and would buy the same generation junk integras to upgrade brakes, etc.

What I have a problem with is the crank bolt on my Honda. I simply can't get it off. I really don't feel like pulling the starter and risking breaking off teeth to hold the pulley in place. I'm using a 950 lb/ft torque air impact gun and have not been able to get it to move.

yea its strange! the spacer(round hole sticking out) in the middle is wider for some odd reason. anyways the points I got was for a swear word spelled correctly and it was sensored haha. I'm debating if I should just drill both out, on the car and off the car. I'm not sure and would prefer not to do this but do I need those bolts? once the tire is bolted on the disc isn't moving pr going anywhere!

nobody runs those 2 screws holding the rotor on with hondas. Yes they are a pain. You don't need them, drill out and forget. I have a few lapping days and several hundred auto X runs without those screws and never gave it a thought. I also have one lapping day with 3 lugnuts (snapped a stud in the paddock),not the smartest thing I've ever done but the 3 lugs held on fine when I checked between sessions. Thanks to the tech guys at nelsons ledges for being cool about that ... "at your own risk".

For the crank pulley bolt, there's a special honda tool to hold it. You put a breaker bar in the tool and wedge that against the front subframe. Then use another breaker bar with a cheater pipe and the bolt breaks loose pretty easy.

I do have the tool still, and I don't anticipate owning a honda again anytime soon, I'd be happy to sell it for shipping costs. PM me if interested.

I myself have had struggles with the lower rear control arm bolts siezed into the bushings. Sometimes a torch is the only way, a lot of times the heads will snap right off of the bolt, and penetrating oil just doesn't seem to do anything. F lower control arm bolts!!

Also BALL JOINTS. PITA. Worst part of the car to work on IMO

Anything that requires getting the turbo out. The heat shield/downpipe area have some bolts that were a blast to find the first time we pulled the engine bay apart.

Can't believe I forgot this.. The damn timing bolt. That thing broke a few breaker bars.

Also, splitting the block all the way apart took us a few hours.

Most of our issues were just with that turbo area of the car. We had had an axle boot burst over there so that was added into the mix. Fun stuff.

Ummm heater core on anything post 1990...

My personal most recent non-favorite- Audi A6 quattro transmission without a lift.

And you think the VC gaskets are bad on those? Try an early navigator with a 5.4

I had trouble with my first axle. It was just difficult to get out and back in, lining everything up. ... and that I didn't know there was a pin holding it in initially....

All is well, learned some stuff. Should be better next time.

Just about anything on a Ford Ranger. All of the D grade engineers went to Ford in the 80's.
On a Subaru... the up pipe is my tormentor. ;[

Aha, you guys want to laugh at my idiocity? The spacer i was talking about was this...

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/541/imageysf.jpg/

Its just some aftermarket crap to easily place aftermarket rims... I took apart all the things i needs from what i bought and then i decided to take another look.. Used a flat head and hammer on it and popped right off... Screw working in the cold again! Atleast im going to get my money back

Ive changed the plugs on dodge hemi too freaken pita, done it on a mercedes ml something, old vehicle of mine some suv, 6 cyc with 12 plugs :/.
Splitting thw block in my subaru was a pain that i gave up and threw thw block and blam came apart spare old rusty block

Thanks for the tips guys i drilled the spare parts but like i said didnt end up using it... Atleast i didnt take my car apart before i found out about the stupid spacer!
