'''legal term.''' usually when the boots go bad the entire axle needs replacement for safety reasons. you don't know how much debris ,dust,water and or contaminants when in to the axle and it will just eat those joins away causing axle failure (vehicle accidents). '''do it your self term.''' on the other hand if is your personal vehicle and you doing it your self you could buy a kit at an autoparts store and yeah just replace the boots and grease them up.

Rear brakes do not have to be replaced too often. It's really hard to tell without looking at it. What you can do is to replace front brakes and test drive it, if you feel that your car brakes works just fine you do not need to replace rear brake shoes.

How do you check and add transmission fluid in a 2005 Toyota Tundra Dbl Cab?

Try looking for a white dip stick.Most transmission dip sticks are white.And the fill is in the same place as the dip stick. I just had the same thing with my 05 - it had "lifetime" transmission fluid and did not need to be replaced. It was serviced by a Toyota dealership and they only discovered it AFTER draining the fluid and not being able to find the dipstick to check the level. According to the service manager, if there is no dipstick, it should not be replaced. If you drain the fluid, it has to be replaced by some certified Toyota technician as it has to be heated to a certain temperature or you can really screw it up. It is like checking a manual there is a fill plug and drain plug open the upper plug fill plug and make shure its up to the bottom of the screw hole that Toyota dealership is bullshitting you to get your money they actually made it easier and there is no such thing as lifetime fluid it should be changed every 30,000 miles. I really get sick of these dealers not being truthfull i have been working on these vehicles for 12 years

How soon should you replace bushings and ball joints on a Toyota Corolla?

Well, the key is really in the bushings. Once they start to catch fire and talk to you, you know you're in trouble. Because, well, you're not Moses. You really have to keep an eye on the bushings and replace them before they catch fire. I'm not sure about ball joints. Are you sure you mean the Toyota Corolla?

How do you replace the bulbs steering wheel on a 2002 aurora?

Unfortunately this is one area of my car that I have been really unimpressed by GM. That $0.50 light bulb you want to replace on your dash or your steering wheel will be the cost of the switch it is behind. They are integral and the bulb can not be replaced on it's own. Pop the switch on your console for the heated seats, and you will see that it is really not something that can be done. An even worse thing. If you have a switch on your environmental controls on the dash that will not light. You would have to replace that whole unit, at a cost of about $900.00 Canadian, when they replaced mine after a different problem If you have an extended warranty They will not cover the light as the switch still works. Hope that helps. Kumar You can't, you have to replace the switch's themselves

It really depends on whether you have a warranty on it. If it came cracked, then of course it can be replaced for no charge (call Apple and yell at them). However, if you are responsible for the damage, bring it to an apple store and ask them.

There is really no way to tell. Take the car to a shop and have them replace the transmission oil filter and fluid. Make sure to tell them you want the filter replaced because some places just suck out the oil and replace it without replacing the filter.

Your bike tire has gone flat no sign of any foreign materials you re inflated and air is coming from the valve should you replace tire or is there a repair?

It really depends a lot on what type of valve it is. on some the valve core can be replaced. On some motorbike rims the whole valve can be replaced. If it's a bicycle odds are that you can replace the tube(and the valve) w/o having to replace the tire. Take care when mounting the tire though, as it's quite easy to damage the tube during assembly.

What would cause a cylinder one misfire in a Toyota Echo?

replace plugs, if already replaced, replace coil that is plugged into sparkplugs. Could be many things really - but yes if plugs are old, replace them first. Engines also misfire when they do not have the expected amount of fuel and air, so any problem with either of those could cause a misfire (air filter clog, fuel pump dying, bad fuel injector, bad wiring to the plugs or fuel injectors). Not likely, but if you hear a lot of noise, a bad timing chain could also be responsible. It is also possible that a bad MAF or O2 sensor could cause a misfire. If your O2 sensors are old (>100k miles) you should replace them, only use genuine Denso replacements (they can be bought for around $35 shipped), other brands do not work well with Toyota's extra sensitive requirements.

How often do i need to change the battery for a Toyota Prius?

Since 1998 no Prius have had battery replacement due to "wearing out". So far only accidents or defective batteries have been replaced. Keep in mind the Prius does not use one big battery either, instead it is 10 or 12 smaller batteries in a long casing. If one should deplead they would just replace that unit. Toyota expected the batteries to last 8-10 years but are now finding out they will last much longer. They only way to really test it is to let time go buy and see.
