Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the front drive shaft on this 2006 Jeep Liberty. The items you'll need for this are an 8mm socket and ratchet, flat blade screwdriver, a hammer, jack and jack stands, and a second person isn't required but it does make this a lot easier.

The front drive shaft is located right here, and it's held in on either end with a series of 8mm bolts. We'll start off by removing the front 8mm bolts. Using a hammer and a flat blade screwdriver, break that front part free. We'll just fast forward as Don removes the 8mm bolts on the other side. It helps to have another person holding the drive shaft while someone else removes the bolts, but you can brace it yourself. Again, use a hammer and a flat blade screwdriver and break this end free. Then you just pull this down and out.

Take your new drive shaft and feed it back up into place. You want to feed it in the back end first, and push the back end up and over where it's supposed to go. Then feed the front end in. You can now lower that back end down in place. Then you just want to replace those 8mm bolts. We'll just fast forward as Don replaces those and tightens them up. You want to stop the wheel from moving so that this won't turn so you can tighten the bolts up. Have a second person to hold the wheel or brace it some other way just so that it can't move. You want to repeat the process on the other end. Again, we'll just fast forward as Don replaces those 8mm bolts. After you've preliminarily tightened the bolts, go around in a kind of crossing pattern, tighten them to about twelve to fourteen foot-pounds.
