Question about Cars & Trucks
Clock has a Hansen synchron motor, clock shaped like a house with a boy and a girl on a moving teeter totter. The motor is disconnected from the clock works and I do not have the parts to reconnect it.

look onm the sidewall of your tires...there are numbers on there tha indicate size...example (not your car) 225 70 r15 ......225 is the size,(how tall) 70 is the aspect ratio (but not terribly important here) and r means radial, 15 is the size of the hole in the center where the wheel goes.
Ifg all tires have the same number then they are the same size. Usually there is a sticker inside the door (the part where the latch is) that lists the proper size.
Rim offset is how far in from the face of the wheel (where the tire meets the wheel) the mounting flange is. Most wheels have the flange half way between inside and outside edge. That is "0" offset. If the flange is nearer to the outside that is negative, more towards the inside, positive. Either way offset has nothing to do with height. You can customize cornering by using more positive offset at the rear but you can't put those wheels in the front. I just listed enough stuff for you to get an idea whats going on, If you have the facts right, then the shop is not telling you the truth.
A side note to this is if you have abs brakes, you need to have all four tires the same size or the computer will read slippage where there is none and mis apply the brakes.

you must remove the screws along the bottom of the door panel. you must remove 2 screw in under the door "arm rest" (they're toward the front) you MUST remove the metal clip behind the window crank (those with pwr w/l dont have to worry about this step obviously) to do this: you can try to use a thin towel. placing it between the panel and the thin black disc and pulling in a teeter-totter motion. HOWEVER, the best and easiest way to do this is to get ahold of the tool made to do this. it can be picked up at most local auto stores. Or if you live near a best buy or other stores that does installations, tell them you are having trouble getting them out and ask them to remove them for you. (they have a Snap-On tool for this and it works like a CHARM!!) once the metal clip is removed pull the window crank off once you have the bolts and screws removed, you need to go along the edges of the door panel with a long screw driver or your hands and seperate the panel fromm the door (there are several push-pin that hold it to the door) then lift up and out slowly. you'll have to move it around the door handle. before you try to complete take the panel off, UNHOOK the speaker wiring (and power doors/locks if you have them)
to put the panel back on, basically repeat the steps. the first thing you need to do is put the panel back on by starting at the top where the window comes out. there should be a groove that the door rests on. then line up all of the push-pins with their holes (and connect any needed wires) put the bolts back in under the arm rest, and along the bottom of the panel, then the window clip. (this may take a few attempts, but you'll get it)
