A tune-up and throttle body clean-up is a good idea, but mind you on those cars, the valve covers usually leak into the spark plugs and coils, causing the car to misfire. If you are replacing the plugs and find them soaked in oil; replace your valve cover gaskets or you will be back to the same problem soon after the oil soaks the new plugs back up again.

Depends how competent you are here and what sort of tools you have.You will also need to replace oil filter if you wish to replace oil within the engine.The oil has to be drained from underneath the engine and allow it to sit for few hours while draining as this will ensure all the deposits at the bottom comes off.

Replacing brake light


Hi Edward-
The top brake light lens is held on with two size T25 Torx screws. You need a suitable size torx screw driver to remove (and again later replace the assembly) the two screws. Once the screws are removed (do not lose these), you can remove the entire lens assembly. You'll see the wires leading to the plastic bulb socket. The bulb socket twists off the assembly like a bayonet. Once the bulb socket is off, you'll be able to remove the bulb simply by pulling it straight out. Replace the bad bulb by inserting the new bulb and then reassemble your third brake light in the reverse order you removed it. Enjoy!

How to replace brakes on 2002 BMW X5 4.4liter...does the hub come off in one piece.....or doesi it have to be seperated? Thanks, Gene


Rear brakes or Front Brakes? Once the rear drums are removed you have access to all the brake parts for the rear brakes. As far as the front pads are concernedonce you remove teh wheel you ahve access to the caliper assembly which is removed by loosening the two retaining bolts on the back side of the caliper and it lifts off to remove and replace the pads themselves then goes right back on. You will need an Allen Wrench of the proper size to remove the retaining bolts, a caliper compressor to do the front brakes. To remove the rear brakes once the drum is removed you have to use a brake repair tool or a large Flat head screwdriver and a large pair of needle nose pliers. The initial retaining clips for the rear brakes can be removed by grasping the exposed end and turning 90 degrees then use the screwdriver to stretch and leverage off the spring assemblies that operate the brakes.

Center brake light still out after replacing bulb


It could be the Third Brake Light assembly is bad, remove the assembly and have someone step on the brake and you can check to see if you are getting current to the contacts or wires.

If no power, replace the assembly.

Anyone know how to replace the third brake light on a 1999 windstar ?


Look on the inside of the liftgate and you'll spot a plastic trim panel/piece directly behind the High Mount brake light. Gently pry this piece off and you'll have access to the bulb and socket.

How do I change the bulb 2004 infiniti high mount bake light?


Unfortunately, these are not very simple. If you have a factory high mount brake light-meaning not one in a spoiler, you have to remove the rear seats, the rear parcel shelf and then the 3rd brake light. the 3rd brake light I believe is an LED setup which get replaced as an assembly which inserts into the housing. If you need further guidance let me know.

Thanks,

Brian
