Hi. Changing lower ball joints found no rivets yet. Is it OK to separate the joint from the arm or not possible at all? Thanks
have the same problem?

If i'm not mistaking I believe the lower ball joints on this model are pressed in. To remove you need to jack the vehicle from the lower control arm, you'll need a ball joint separator to separate the steering knuckle from the the ball joint. Move the knuckle assembly out of the way and whack the ball joint with a hammer till it pops out. In order to install you'll need a ball joint press to press back in the control arm. Hope this helps
