If you own a Toyota Land Cruiser 120, you may eventually need to replace the axl holder. This is a common maintenance task that can be done at home with the right tools and knowledge. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of replacing the axl holder on your Land Cruiser 120 using only HTML5. This tutorial is suitable for beginners and does not require any prior knowledge of HTML5. So, let's get started!
What You Will Need
Before we begin, make sure you have the following tools and materials:
- Jack and jack stands
- Socket wrench set
- Replacement axl holder
- Wheel chocks
- Wheel nut wrench
- Penetrating oil
- Shop towels
Step 1: Prepare Your Vehicle
Before you start working on your Land Cruiser 120, make sure you park it on a flat and level surface. Engage the parking brake and place wheel chocks behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling. Then, use the wheel nut wrench to loosen the lug nuts on the wheel where you will be replacing the axl holder. Do not remove the lug nuts completely, just loosen them.
Step 2: Lift the Vehicle
Using a jack, lift the vehicle until the wheel is off the ground. Place jack stands under the vehicle for added support. Make sure the vehicle is stable and secure before you start working.
Step 3: Remove the Wheel
Now, you can remove the lug nuts completely and take off the wheel. Place the wheel aside and make sure it is not in your way while you work.
Step 4: Remove the Old Axl Holder
Using a socket wrench, remove the bolts that hold the axl holder in place. If the bolts are rusted or stuck, you can use a penetrating oil to loosen them. Once the bolts are removed, you can take out the old axl holder.
Step 5: Clean the Area
Before installing the new axl holder, make sure the area is clean and free of any debris. Use shop towels to wipe away any dirt or grime.
Step 6: Install the New Axl Holder
Place the new axl holder in the same position as the old one and secure it with the bolts. Make sure the bolts are tightened properly using the socket wrench.
Step 7: Reinstall the Wheel
Put the wheel back on and tighten the lug nuts using the wheel nut wrench. Lower the vehicle using the jack and remove the jack stands. Finally, use the wheel nut wrench to tighten the lug nuts one last time.
Step 8: Repeat the Process
If you need to replace the axl holder on the other side, simply repeat the same process on the other wheel.
Step 9: Test Drive
Take your Land Cruiser 120 for a test
