    RE: quick question

    You can use a very small screw driver or pick to get in between one of the grooves on the c-clip and the shaft and work them off.

    RE: quick question

    xr eight is right. Thats how I get mine off. Use the needle nose to squeeze them back to what they were like before you took them off if they are loose when you put them back on. Just be carefull because they are easy to crush. Also prying them off with a screwdriver tends to make them air born so you might put a towell over the car while your poppin them off. Just peek under it to see what your doing. I bougt a cheap shop magnet too for those unfortunate times when I do drop one. Makes it so much easier to find those teensy weency itty bitty teeny tiny @!$#in little *%$#%$# when they get into the carpet.[sm=spinnyeyes.gif]

    Also to all you newbs out there... pay attention to Xeller8! Hes one of the good ones. Knows his stuff!

    RE: quick question

    Wow man...thanks!....don't know what to say really other than I'm just ME and I like to try and help people out if I can...I don't feel I'm better than anybody else and I definitely don't know EVERYTHING but I will do my best to help find the answers I don't have...but hey...thanks again for the compliment bud....I appreciate it.[8D]

    As for those c-clips...you really don't need to hide under a towel necessarily...lol...once you have the screwdriver or pick in position just put your finger over the clip until it pops loose then it should just fall to the table.

    RE: quick question

    LOL!...yeah...that is pretty damn confusing...another example of translation gone wrong...

    They are actually c-hubs or hub mounts that hold the front axle hubs (also called steering arms) in place.

    Oh...and don't ever worry about "sounding so new"...nuttin wrong with that at all...if you have questions go right ahead and ask![8D]
