In this video I show you the process I use to knock out a front wheel hub and speed sensor on a 2014 Nissan Altima. It a pretty painless job even with the corrosion.
-Enjoy!

    Oh I guess computers and code trouble shooting is ok. But rust, grease and dirt along with maybe, an appearance by Mr Big Nasty is so much more fun.

    Aviation industry A&P mechanic for 30 years here. I see no issue here. 😉 And split pin/ cotter pin. Call it whatever ya want man.

    Hey Eric been watching for awhile was wondering if you can give me some help. I’m trying to my buddy with his 2008 Buick LaCrosse he lost his keys and got a new key made by a locksmith the car started that day but unfortunately the battery was bad the car sat for a long time. After a few weeks we put a battery in it and now it does not start. Throws a B3031 code security system not learned it has something to do with the key. I done the 3 10 minute learn procedure but did not work any ideas on what to do? He spent 300 on a locksmith for this key and they are giving him a hard time on coming back out

    Somewhere, somebody is confusing 1620 inch pounds with foot-pounds. Cursing happened, and a professional will be called.

    Where's the test ride?

    I like looking at the homes

    Reminds me of younger days

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jz says:

    I cant get through these. This guy is really obnoxious.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Whiskey Smoke says:

    Is it normal to have fluid leakage at the axle boot when it was lose?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cody Perry says:

    Thank you for the goat noises! Made my day! 😂

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jerry davis says:

    Almost never heard them referred to as split pins down here. Cotter pins almost exclusively and to get home when necessary an appropriate size nail. BTW, down here is Georgia.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rebel3353 says:

    don't think it matters much, but will the speed sensor be ok since you routed it differently than it was taken out?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vance Pendleton says:

    Apparently, you've never had your head strapped into a vise while the eye doctor picks the metal fragments off your eyeballs with a needle syringe. While the eye doctor has the needle resting against your eyeball, he'll ask you not to blink. Make sure you don't blink.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Gray says:

    I've always called them cotter pins.
    So what is a cotter pin?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil Underhill says:

    Why do you suppose they went to the effort of making that original hub into a funky shape when the replacement was just round? Seems odd.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Michlewicz says:

    Yay a nuts and bolts video.extra crusty.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars keeperofthegood says:

    Cotter Pin…. Welcome Back Kotter …. In your nose …. 😃with a rubber hose! Thank you Eric, the old brain went off like a pin ball machine with one bing to the next hahaha

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Kools says:

    Did you fix the ladies coolant leak that was dripping on the cv boot?

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars trumpetman2006 says:

    I love the sheep sound effect

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bobby wills says:

    I've been watching your videos for years. I always get a good laugh when that New York accent comes through. Mom's family is from New York and the old man's family is from North West Florida on the gulf coast. Mom used to tell me when she met my father while he was stationed in New York, that she thought that the only thing that came out of the south, was rednecks and stump jumpers. I spoke with my aunt (aka – ant) the other night, and she still lives in New York. Her accent and at the speed which she speaks, I had to tell her to slow down and speak to where this country boy could understand her.
    Love the videos and the great work that you do, keep it up chief.

    Hiya Eric

    potato or tator, split pin or cotter pin, same diff.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars malkentent says:

    how many air tools did you use in that little clip.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Miner says:

    Hi, Mr. O. Yup. I would have broken off the speed sensor. Thanks for pointing that out. And by the by, I do worry that you are not taking care of your lungs. I know what coal miners get: Black lung. What do auto mechanics get? Vitamins and tea from their lovely Mrs. O. That's what. Take it easy Sir Mechalot! Take care of your castle, Joyous Garage.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Devin Gray says:

    Sound like you should get with cleeter and try the no bolts in wheel bearings at the freedom factory in a "controlled environment"..hahaha

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 64maxpower says:

    I disagree. If you can do it there's alot of people that can't. You are super amazing

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars uglysteve1 says:

    They make those B-12 pills in a cherry flavor. FYI (FYI can mean two things. This means the good thing) Steve

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zoran S says:

    For the rusty wheels that are stuck on, i use my 5lb dead blow rubber hammer works good never damages any wheels.

    The speed sensors i soak in deep creep and use my small air hammer around it, breaks up the rust.. then just a twist with a pair of pliers and out it comes.

    The smell of fluid film is something else..

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars doober says:

    your half shaft leaking grease sir

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Welch says:

    From the land of "OZ" you and rainman sre the best mechanic's on youtube👍👍

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Kapica says:

    Ah drilling out the speed sensor. Good times. And you forgot the never seize prior to install😂😂😂😂

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nicholas Perna says:

    The interior CV joint was leaking like a sieve!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars npsit1 says:

    Good work, sir.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David McDow says:

    I love watching a professional work.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars voyageur1998 says:

    the shaft need to be replace there is greese everywhere

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon Link says:

    More than once I've had all the bolts out of something and the only way to break it free was to lower the car back down, and sometimes even then the rust wouldn't let go. Some days I wonder why I live in this soon to be frozen hell.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pavel 517 says:

    Nice method being the boss on that speed sensor with the Dewalt !!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tommy Ross says:

    I love watching your videos,even I have dune it be for, you might do something faster

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jhitt79 says:

    I don’t know about a “New York Nissan” but I’d bet $1000 that you could remove the wheel bearing bolts out of a Michigan Chrysler thats been through through a winter or two with no problems.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BERNIE PRAGLE says:

    Eric O,
    Off topic… How did Mrs O make out with the Power Stop brakes you installed on her van?
    I was thinking about getting a complete set for my 2001 Honda Prelude.
    Thank you

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Jankiewicz says:

    Last chance tool is the first tool used. Outstanding.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Know One says:

    cotter keys….LOL

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Mitchell says:

    Perfect timing, you put in the split pin ( aka in America cotter pin ). As your saying if you're from NASA or an expert, it sounded like the kids screaming in the background, I said to myself there are the experts screaming around the world LOL

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Walter McKinnis says:

    Where those Flintstone chewables 😆

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Burns says:

    The question about how long a New York wheel bearing would stay in with the bolts removed might be a great experiment for the great Stuntman.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Richardson says:

    I wonder how well the all electric cars are going to stand up to the New York winters….

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan A says:

    Inner CV joint look bad too.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Assessor 12 says:

    I don’t know why, but the Fluid Film and brake cleaner sound effects always make me laugh right out loud.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bush master says:

    Another video with Eric wearing his safety squints….Do we all need to chip in and buy you a real pair of protective eye wear? They do make "readers" ya know, bi-focal lenses in different powers if you need them. Take care of your eyes if you want to see Mrs. O age gracefully and the kids grow up.
