Step 3: Remove the Broken Arm
The suspension arm has to be disconnected from the chassis and the C-hub or upright. Depending on your model, disconnecting the arm from the chassis may require that you pop e-clips off a hingepin, or simply unscrew the hingepin (as is the case with our E-maxx). To remove the C-hub or upright, you’ll need to remove another hingepin, or unscrew the pivot ball (as we did with the E-maxx).
This E-maxx requires that the pivot balls be unscrewed to free the upper arm. Other models may use a hingepin.
Unscrew the hingepin to remove the suspension arm. You may need to remove other parts to access the hingepin—in this case, we had to remove the E-maxx’s front bumper.
