How to safely remove adhesive residue from PVC windows?

Natural Eucalyptus oil or natural Tea Tree oil will dilute the glue and enable you to rub it away without affecting the PVC.
(I would prefer not use a solvent such as mineral turps or kerosene or methylated spirits. These will all soften and remove the glue at differing rates but might cause minor swelling in the PVC material. Less likely with the methylated spirits though. You can test a small inconspicuous area first to see if there is any effect).

What kind of sealer is recomended to seal exterior joins on my stirling 2007 poptop van?.

I'd use some time of silicone sealer. If contacting metal, use neutral cure type. There are various colours available, and even a type which is paintable (common silicone sealer does not take paint).

You can get a good edge by using masking tape either side of the seam first. Smooth the sealer down with a finger dipped in soapy water.

Front passenger window won't roll up

It is your power window motor & regulator, the cable broke. Here is what you do, order one from, that's what I had to do. To remove it you have to remove the door panel take of the plastic water barrier, there are 2 bolts that hold the window in place, then grab the window on both sides & bring it up to the top, take some masking tape or duck tape it to the window on both sides of window to hold the window up take out the 3 bolts that hold the motor in place then take the bolts that hold the regulator, make sure you unplug the connector from the motor then pull the regulator and motor out of the hole at rear of door.
I know this because I had to do the same thing about a week ago.

I cannot get into the car, the both handles are broken off

it's called the "hammer method"... i think you get what i'm talking about, and nonstructural glass (aka anything but the windshield) isn't expensive to replace anyways. Good luck!

and remember, wear safety glasses and toss the hammer instead of striking it directly. use a small sledge hammer preferably.

New power window regulator installed, now window goes up to top then comes back down half way and stops. How to adjust?

It is important to learn how to fix a Honda Accord window if you have an older Honda Accord. Although the Honda Accord is renowned for being a durable vehicle, the electric window motor regulators in older models can wear out over time. This is noticeable when you hear sounds coming from the window when you attempt to use it but the window won't move. But don't worry, you can use these steps to fix a broken window in your Honda Accord.

To fix a Honda Accord window, you will need:
  • A Phillips screwdriver
  • A flathead screwdriver
  • A wrench set
  • A black marker
  • Masking tape
  • A new Honda Accord electric window regulator
  1. Remove the screws securing the door panel from the inside of the vehicle. These screws are beneath the arm rest. Release the door panel by prying it away from the front of the door. Work your way back by prying off the top and sides of the panel and the back of the panel.
  2. Remove the clips holding the door panel using a flathead screwdriver to pinch them together. Remove the panel by sliding it upward and away from the door.
  3. Remove the two bolts securing the window to the regulator. Note the position where the bolts secure the windows. When you re-install the window you will need to adjust them similarly. Making a small mark on the window with a black marker is a good way to easily keep track of the correct position.
  4. Lift the window directly up and remove it from the car door. Secure it using masking tape if you prefer not to remove it completely.
  5. Remove the bolts securing the window motor and guide. Remove the window motor and guide and set them aside.
  6. Remove the regulator from the power window motor assembly. Dispose of the old regulator and install the new unit.
  7. Re-attach the window motor and guide to the door by following the removal instructions in reverse. Test the new window regulator by turning on your ignition switch and moving the window up with the electric switch.
take it back apart somethings not tight

So here is the deal, I took out my entire dash board out of my truck with plans to re-paint it. So my question is how should I go about painting the plastic moulding and what not? Also I was curious as...

they make special paint for this, contact a local automotive paint store they can sell u the paint and the cleaners you need to use to prep the plastic, do no skip any step, what follows is a detailed description of what this cleaning entails.
Use a clean rag and the soapy water to wash the rest of the dashboard. You'll need to scrub especially hard if the dashboard has Armor All™ or another type of protectant on it.

Next, rinse the dashboard off well, and dry it off with a clean rag. Before you paint the interior of your car, the areas will need to be completely dry in order for the paint to stick well to it. So, let the dashboard air dry while you apply painter's masking tape to the interior. Painter's masking tape is blue tape that peels off easily after the job is done. That's why it's recommended over regular masking tape. Painter's masking tape won't leave a sticky residue like regular tape can, too.

Tape off the areas of the dashboard you don't want to get paint on. This may include the bottom part of the windshield, the radio, gauges, the gear shift, other chrome, etc.

Before you paint hard plastic areas, you'll need to rough it up with a piece of fine sandpaper first. Use an old rag to wipe up the dust the sandpaper creates. Then, you'll need to remove the remainder of the dust with a wet, soapy rag. Rinse the area again and dry it well.

Finally, use a clean rag and some rubbing alcohol to go over the plastic pieces, and the dashboard (if it's made of plastic) one more time. The rubbing alcohol will remove any residue left from cleaning the area with the soapy water.

My driver's side window motor has quit working. What is involved in changing the motor for it?

First you will need to remove the inner door panel to gain access to the window motor and regulator. The are only serviced as a unit. You will need some masking tape or duct tap for the next step, on the bottom edge od the window glass you will fine that it is attached to the regulator. There are two clips you will need to remove ( they pull out fairly easy) Before removing them place strips of tape over the top ov the door frame down both side of the glass to hold it in place. Next disconnect the wiring from the window motor it will be mounted in the center of the door frame.You will find 4 bolts 1 in each end of the regulator. You may think your trying to get a square peg into a round hole wiggling the regulator out but it will come. Installing is the opposite of removal, just be sure to plug in your motor and take the tape off the glass before trying the operation and alignment before putting the door panel back on. Hope this helps

Removal for cleaning headlamp covers for my my 2001 sebring, thay are stained and yellow

Much easier to clean them with them in place. Use some 2" wide blue (low-tack) masking tape to mask off the paint surfaces, then use a polish kit to remove the stains, polish your lamps and put a sealant on them. Turtle Wax makes a good kit that is reasonable in price.

Power window will sometimes work with a little help.

From what you have described, it sounds to me like you have a bad/worn window regulator which is what the window motor and window itself are connected to. Not the easiest of repairs, especially if you've never replaced one! But if you attempt this repair you'll need to 1st remove the inner door panel to access it. Its mostlikely bolted to the inner door framing and riveted to the clips the attach the window to the regulator. Oh, and if your window is in the up position, tape it with masking tape in place by starting at one side, then over the door piller, and ending at the otherside of the window. you can order the regulator/motor assembly at your local chain auto parts store (Pepboys, Autozone, O'rielly, etc. Good luck, and let me know if this helped you.
