    Default Car Parts - Translation please

    Who can tell me what these things are on a car:

    Buschin
    Caja de Bola
    Bola Esferica
    La Pina (by the tires?)

    Most of the stuff is just english pronounced in Dominican. I can't figure these ones out

    I thought la pina is normally residing next to its hundreds of neighbors on the back of a beat-up old pick-up...

    At least that is where I buy them from... lol

    Caja de bolas is the wheel bearing, pina is the piece the wheel bearing fits into.

    from miesposo:
    Buschin - a piece of rubber that is placed on a bar that stabilizes the car, normally in jeeps
    Caja de Bola - wheel bearing
    Bola Esferica - ball joint
    La Pina - in tires it a metal part where breaks are

    don't aks, he is not good in explaining. but he can show you where those things are

    When my air conditioning fan wasn't working(the blower), I spent a lot of time w/ the dictionary getting ready for my mechanico.

    La ventiladora = fan.

    He couldn't understand and corrected my Espanol....... el blower
    Go figure

    Just like the weedwhacker............. el trimmer
