The tripod hub in a vehicle is an integral part of the driveshaft and wheel assembly in a car. The tripod hub serves the important function of acting as a joint. A qualified mechanic will need to remove and replace the tripod hub in a car if it is faulty or damaged.
To get to the tripod hub, the front wheel drive shaft, the free wheeling hub and the drive shaft will need to be removed. The drive shaft is then disassembled and the joint boot clamps are removed. Next, the inboard joint tulips are disassembled to get to the part in question. The first step is to log onto 123spareparts.co.uk and type your parts requirements into the search menu.
