The vehicle must be safely and properly supported. The axle nut removed, the suspension strut to hub separated, the sway bar link removed and the tie rod end removed from the steering knuckle. With draw the axle form the outer hub, the inner axle is pried out of the differential It is engaged in the differential spider gears by means of an expanding circlip (conventional method used to retain most front wheel drive cars.) On reassembly the axle nut is torqued to 192 ft/lb.

Is that actually 192 ft/lb?
