Having problems with your 1989 Ford Festiva ?
How do you take drive shaft out on a ford corsair?
\015 Do i need to remove the front disk, to remove the drive shaft? i need to fit a new clutch, but that big bolt that holds the wheel bearing i can't take it off it is really tight, is there any other way to remove the driveshaft without removing the disks? The car is a ford corsair\015
Ford corsair built in the 60s is a rear wheel drive car??.Any front wheel drive vehicle must have the big nut undone in the centre of the wheel ,put some engine oil on it let it soak for a day then undo it with a 32mm socket and a 3/4 drive socket set or 1inch drive socket set .1/2 inch is unlikely to do it as the knuckle bar will snap .most front wheel drive cars you will need to drop the subframe as well so give everything a good soaking with an oil can ,NOT WD 40 you do not need to remove the disk only the drive shaft ,undo the lower track control arm ,the track rod end and with big nut undone,screw it back on till end is flush with shaft thread the wack shaft in to loosen it using a nice bit of hardwood so you dont damage the thread on the end .
