Customer Question

I have a 2004 Accord. The ball joint failed while driving - besides a new ball joint and axle assembly, what else will I need to replace?
JA: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes - I'm just trying to acquire a list. The steering knuckle, lower control arm and strut all look ok, but I was going about 30 mph when it happened
JA: Have you checked the fluids?
Customer: in the transmission?
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so

I am very sorry your having this issue with your vehicle.

I will try my best to answer all of your questions.

However, before we get started, please let me mention a few things.

1. If at any point you would like to speak on the phone, please feel free to request a phone call on your end and I can call you right away.

2. If you dont understand any technical terms or anything that I mention (component tests or theory or operation), please let me know and I will provide you with a more in debt explanation or answer.

3. Please understand that I am here to help you any way I can.

There is no way I can tell you what "needs" to be replaced without looking at it myself.

However, I can provide you with a list of things to check. Does that sound good?
