Snap-on Parts replacement

I bought my 2002 x-type used. It is missing two of what I call "snap-on" parts on the front. One is the size of a silver dollar between the headlights on the driver's side. The passenger side has a little green circle piece of pvc in the same spot. The other snap-on part is a type of thin grill under the front license plate mount. Not sure what these parts are called and I'm concerned that asking the dealer will be over-priced.

I think you are descibing the headlamp wash system that is missing between the headlamps. The theary is that every 7 times the windscreen is washed the washer jets pop out from the bumper and blast the headlamps with water. They were fitted as an extra rather than standard so if the cost of replacement is to expensive it would be favourable to just replace the plastic cover to hide the hole. You may find that the water jets are in place and its only the small plastic cover that is missing. The grill under the licence plate mount is mainly cosmetic but care should be taken incase other adjoining parts are loose. Hope this helps.

I have an older model of an Indensit flat extractor hood. I took off the grill to replace the filter but can't seem to pop the grill back in and I don't have the instruction manual...


the reason is the connecting point or points where they snap together are different years of manufactures it depends how many times they have changed the design and or connects point, to make it easier to attach to the newer part, a true story my father bought identical jeeps make and model one from January and one from December and most of the parts were different. if i was you look for any type of differences just a little bit size, hole place mints, snap locations, length of connectors, and so on there will be different even if it is few millimeters in length, height, width, dominator, snap connections, guide lines, something little so you cannot use the old parts from the same model.

The fuel filter has a normal screw type on one end the other looks like a "snap-in" app?


  • Hi, I can help.

  • The "snap in" side of the fuel line is removed with a GM fuel line gas tool. This can be purchased at any parts store for $5usd or so. You put the fuel line tool around the line with the round end facing towards the fuel filter and press firmly towards the fuel filter and this release the fuel line from the fuel filter.

  • When in stalling the new fuel filter make sure to have the point of the arrow on the fuel filter facing away from the pump as this indicates the direction the fuel flows. Where you use the fuel line tool to remove that line will just snap into place during install.


  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.

The rear window automatic open and close system has stopped working on my jaguar stype,reg t55 jms


On both rear windows, or just one? If its just one then probably the regulator mechanism in the door has broken (there are some rather fragile plastic parts that can snap with age). The mechanism is easily replaced by removing the door trim (take out two screws found under the rubber mat in the door handle well, and pry off the whole door panel with a wide blade screwdriver or cats paw (start at top edge nearest to rear - 4-6 snap fittings should pop off reasonably easily). Unscrew old mechainsm and replace the whole thing.. Parts usually available on Ebay for $50 to $100, make sure you get the correct orientation, front and rear, and left and right, are all different parts - Lincon LS parts also fit perfectly).

If both windows not working and stopped at the same time... sounds electrical.. start checking fuses?

On my 2004 cavalier sedan,where is my oil filter??


It's on the top of the engine, in front of the oil filler cap, and below. You will need to look under some kind of air hose. Look for a large nut (like 3/4 to an inch and a half. Sorry I don't remember the exact size. I have a special shallow socket for mine, I think it was around $10 at a car parts store). It is not a canister type filter, you unscrew the cover and lift, the filter should come up with the cover. You snap it out and snap the new one in and put it back in. It's actually quite a bit easier than other cars I've had where the filter is under somewhere.

I've got a 1999 2500 Chevy Silverado , that I need to change a cv boot on , can u assist me.?


CV-Joints
Overhaul
These vehicles use several different types of joints. Engine size, transaxle
type, whether the joint is an inboard or outboard joint, even which side of the
vehicle is being serviced could make a difference in joint type. Be sure to
properly identify the joint before attempting joint or boot replacement. Look
for identification numbers at the large end of the boots and/or on the end of
the metal retainer bands.

The 3 types of joints used are the Birfield Joint, (B.J.), the Tripod Joint
(T.J.) and the Double Offset Joint (D.O.J.).

NOTE: Do not disassemble a Birfield joint. Service with a new joint or
clean and repack using a new boot kit.

The distance between the large and small boot bands is important and should
be checked prior to and after boot service. This is so the boot will not be
installed either too loose or too tight, which could cause early wear and
cracking, allowing the grease to get out and water and dirt in, leading to early
joint failure.

NOTE: The driveshaft joints use special grease; do not add any grease
other than that supplied with the kit.

Double Offset Joint
To Remove:

NOTE: The Double Offset Joint (D.O.J.) is bigger than other joints
and, in these applications, is normally used as an inboard joint.


  1. Remove the halfshaft from the vehicle.
  2. Side cutter pliers can be used to cut the metal retaining bands. Remove the
    boot from the joint outer race.
  3. Locate and remove the large circlip at the base of the joint. Remove the
    outer race (the body of the joint).
  4. Remove the small snap ring and take off the inner race, cage and balls as an
    assembly. Clean the inner race, cage and balls without disassembling.
  5. If the boot is to be reused, wipe the grease from the splines and wrap the
    splines in vinyl tape before sliding the boot from the shaft.
  6. Remove the inner (D.O.J.) boot from the shaft. If the outer (B.J.) boot is
    to be replaced, remove the boot retainer rings and slide the boot down and off
    of the shaft at this time.

To Install:

NOTE: Be sure to tape the shaft splines before installing the boots.
Fill the inside of the boot with the specified grease. Often the grease supplied
in the replacement parts kit is meant to be divided in half, with half being
used to lubricate the joint and half being used inside the boot.


  1. Install the cage onto the halfshaft so the small diameter side of the cage
    is installed first. With a brass drift pin, tap lightly and evenly around the
    inner race to install the race until it comes into contact with the rib of the
    shaft. Apply the specified grease to the inner race and cage and fit them
    together. Insert the balls into the cage.
  2. Install the outer race (the body of the joint) after filling with the
    specified grease. The outer race should be filled with this grease.
  3. Tighten the boot bands securely. Make sure the distance between the boot
    bands is correct.
  4. Install the halfshaft to the vehicle.

Except Double Offset Joint
To Remove:


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the halfshaft.
  2. Use side cutter pliers to remove the metal retaining bands from the boot(s)
    that will be removed. Slide the boot from the T.J. case.
  3. Remove the snap ring and the tripod joint spider assembly from the
    halfshaft. Do not disassemble the spider and use care in handling.
  4. If the boot is be reused, wrap vinyl tape around the spline part of the
    shaft so the boot(s) will not be damaged when removed. Remove the dynamic
    damper, if used, and the boots from the shaft.

To Install:


  1. Double check that the correct replacement parts are being installed. Wrap
    vinyl tape around the splines to protect the boot and install the boots and
    damper, if used, in the correct order.
  2. Install the joint spider assembly to the shaft and install the snap ring.
  3. Fill the inside of the boot with the specified grease. Often the grease
    supplied in the replacement parts kit is meant to be divided in half, with half
    being used to lubricate the joint and half being used inside the boot. Keep
    grease off the rubber part of the dynamic damper (if used).
  4. Secure the boot bands with the halfshaft in a horizontal position. Make sure
    distance between boot bands is correct.
  5. Install the halfshaft to the vehicle and reconnect the negative battery
    cable.

Is there a special way to replace battery in 2002 rendezvous


It's a little tricky. you need to remove the cross member (black pipe) that connects from the front to the passenger side. You might want to un-snap the fuse box and lay it aside first. Now you should be able to remove the battery retainer and slide the battery upward.
I got lucky when mine needed to be replaced, the auto parts store swapped it no-charge.
