So I replaced the driver side CV axle in my 96' G20. After it was done, from that wheel the car makes a metal on metal grinding noise that is more noticeable and louder when driving slow and turning. Driving straight, it's not very loud or you don't even hear it all the time. I think it's coming from the thin metal circular plate that is behind the rotor, I believe it's purpose is to protect the brake/wheel components. When I did the axle job I removed the two caliper bolts. I sprayed out the brake pad buildup that was around the pads with brake cleaner, put it back on, and bolted it in tight. To get the old axle out I also removed the ball joint, tie rod end, and sway bar link. And of course when I put the new axle in I reconnected all the other parts. I tightened the axle nut to 190 ft lbs and the lug nuts to 80 ft lbs.

Not sure where I went wrong here. I'm sure one of you has an idea.

EDIT: Was the dust cover, bent it. Probably when I was using the hammer on the control arm to loosen the ball joint.

do 20 or 30 of those heater cores and you won't overlook anything.



even then, as a general rule: if it's smaller than a 13mm (12 in jap stuff), T30, or 7mm allen, it's not going to affect safety or reliability, or make a ton of noise without it. you need to use your judgement with this though because obviously a bleeder screw or cam bearing cap doesn't fit the mold. hate if you wish but if any tech, any where tells you they don't have a drawer full of "extra bolts" and whatnot, they're lying. i'm not justifying it; but there is some truth to the saying that all cars have extra bolts.

I'm having trouble with the blend door actuator on a 2002 Chevy 2500 6.0.

The hot and cold work just fine, but the air director knob is completely backward. The defrost setting blows out the front of the dash, and setting the knob to blow air out of the front activates the defroster.

I'm positive I have the cams hooked up properly, and am using the correct actuators in their correct locations. Had to call up the company and confirm the part numbers.

I've gone through every recalibration M.O. I can find, unplugging fuses, the battery, and cycling the ignition and allowing the motors time to reset.

Where do I go from here? Thanks for your time fellas, I appreciate it.
