    Begin by sliding under the front of the car and locating the radiator drain plug on the bottom of the passenger's side of the radiator. Slide the catch container under the drain plug. Use the socket set to loosen and remove the plug. Allow all the coolant to drain out of the system.

    Follow the coolant line that comes out of the bottom of the radiator and enters the engine block. Where the line enters the block, there is a small oval cover. Use the socket set to remove the two screws holding this oval cover on. Below the cover, you will find the thermostat.

    Pull the thermostat out and then slide in the new thermostat. Replace the cover and tighten down the mounting screws. Unscrew the radiator cap and fill the system with a 50/50 mix of water and radiator fluid. Start the car and see if it cools down like it should.

    Your camshaft sensor is under the engine's cover. It is likely a black plastic piece connected to a large metal screwlike thing.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The engine cover just pulls off the clips so no problem their the oil filter is inside a plastic housing at the front of the engine rightish side and it has a 32mm or 28 mm head on the top of the plastic housing as its a cartridge type oil filter not a screw on type that you are accustomed too.

    How do i change the low beam headlights on my 06 forester?

    Hi, there is a round plastic "Bulb Housing Cover" the you will see the wires going into, you need to rotate this cover COUNTER CLOCKWISE and it will slide back about 4 inches. POOR Design on Subaru's end, you need small hands to reach around the cover and remove and install the ne bulb.
    Next Step:
    Remove the BLACK Wire Connector that goes into the bulb. There is a red wire as well, but the black wire is the one to remove. Remove the "Bulb Retention Spring" out of the way. Grasp the bulb by the metal end and remove with a slight twist and pull straight out. Reinstall new bulb. Do Not Touck the Glass on the Bulb as any skinoil can ruin the bulb, use a bit of paper towel or a clean cloth if you need to touch the glass. Reattach the Bulb Retention Clip Reattach the Black Wire. Reinstall the Bulb Housing Cover by rotating it Clockwise. Not too bad, took me about 3 minutes. Subaru could have made access a lot easier!!
    Take care

    Where are the spark plugs on a 2007 Toyota 4 cyl Camry. I removed the top cover and found holes with plastic liners which won't come out, but no spark plugs. Help needed.

    Just follow the wires from the coil pack mounted on top, there are 4 of them, they will take you to the side of the motor where the spark plugs are hiding. Hope this helps.

    How to replace the headlight bulb on 2006 C280?

    1. Figure out best way to light the tight area to see.
    2.look directly behind the light headlight bulb under hood. You will see a round black plastic cover ...Pull it off. Remind yourself how it came off. It will hook into the bottom and snap back in nicely when you are finished.
    3, Do NOT pull off wire connector yet. Note/feel how secure it is for when you replace new bulb.
    4. On the outside perimeter of the backside of bulb housing you will see a black plastic round ring (this holds the bulb in)...(there are 2 finger for clockwise, 1 for counter clockwise). There is hardly any play to either way...push gently Counter-Clockwise to allow bulb loose.
    5. Pull Bulb with wires still attached straight out slowly and see how you will reinsert new one.
    6. Have new bulb ready...don't touch bulb glass. Pull off wire connector.
    7. Put new bulb on exactly same way onto wire connector
    8. Gently house the bulb back the way it came in and hold flush.
    9. Now push outer black plastic tab clockwise to hold in bulb...bulb should be as secure as before you took it out.
    10.Test Light
    11. Put on round black plastic back housing with hooks inserted into 2 two holes on the bottom and press top back its connector and you will hear a secure click.
    12. You are done...have a beer...congratulate yourself. Tom.
