Hello, I have a 2000 Mercedes slk230....the alternator went bad so I am in the process of replacing it....the only way to rplace it is from underneath the car, so I have it up on jack stands....I am having...

I am not familiar with your exact configuration. The tensioners usually have a molded shape on them for a socket drive on a breaker bar or rachet. You would inset the drive into the molded hole and then put tension on the tool to make the belt loose.

Sometimes a tool is not even needed, as the tensioner may be in a convenient location which allows you to just push down on the tensioner by hand. There is no rule about reassembly either.

Make the last pulley to clear the belt be the easiest to reach. Some people prefer a grooved pulley to be last and some people want to deal with only the non-grooved pulleys so the belt slides on bald surfaces better than grooved surfaces. But if you already have enough play in the belt, it really does not matter.

Another item. Make sure you have a rebuilt or new alternator with the same number of grooves on the pulley. And sometimes you need to keep your own pulley because the replacement will not always have a pulley.

Handtool for grooving autotyres

Car tires are never regrooved, that is only for large commercial tires used on heavy equipment,these types of tires can be regrooved because the rubber is much thicker.

I,m replacing my steering pmp, how hard is it to get the pully off?

The pulley is pressed on and you need a tool to pull it off. There are special tools for power steering pump pullies. You will notice the pulley has a groove in the snout. The tool slides over and grabs 3/4 of that groove and the has a bolt that works against the pumps shaft.

Intstalling is easy because sometimes the new pumps come with a long bolt, large washer and a nut. When pressing the pulley on, be sure to use some anti seeze or lightly grease the pumps shaft to the pulley does not gall.

Side mini door wont open on my 99 f-150

The plastic ends of the cables that are fixed so the inner cable moves freely to pull the locking mechanism desintegrated causing it to be inoperative. The cables are not sold alone. You have to buy the whole door locking mechanism to fix the problem. However, here is an idea. Take two small pieces of wood and hold them together with a C-clamp. Then take a rotary tool and carve a groove, wider than the cable cover, at the woods' joints to place later the cable end into the groove. Drill a small hole at the wooden side to let the inner cable come through it on the side, while the cable cover sits inside the carved groove. Place a small nail to hold the cable in place. Prior to place the cable in place, take a candle and spread a film of resin inside the carved groove. Put a small amount of grease where the inner cable enters the cable cover to prevent the cables to be glued. Pour epoxy inside the groove with the cable inside as explained. The epoxy must cover the cable. Let it harden. Remove the C-clamp. Using the rotary tool, carve a slot at the epoxy end where the cable comes outside, to place it in its site where the original broken plastic was located to do its job holding the cable. Now the door mechanism will perfectly work without having to buy the whole door lock array. Use West System epoxy. is my email if you want to see photos of the process. It saved $350. bucks for me and the doors are working good.

If I remember correctly, all it is is a snap ring that fits in a groove. On the ends it should have little holes for the tool to squeeze them closer to each other so you can get it out of the groove. I have used neede nosed pliars before and got it out.

Engine switch removal

You need to either chisel a groove onto the end of the "bolt ends" that holds the switch on; or, use a Dremel moto-tool to score a groove; both to accept a flat blade screwdriver. After the groove is scored into the bolt, it will turn out rather easily. When the switch is installed, at the factory, the bolt heads "break off"; this is supposed to stop people from unbolting the switch if they wanted to steal it.

Where is the thermostat located

Just replaced my thermostat in a 1994 Saturn SL1. Lower hose on passengers side. Had to remove two 10mm bolts. Had to use special tool (paper tube) which came with new thermostat to twist and rotate the old one out of housing. Had to use spray on gasket tack on "O" ring only to get it glued into groove because it was wound up and stuck in paper tube (I mean special tool) which caused it to be bent and hard to seat in groove. Lay "O" ring on paper and spray one side with red gasket adhesive, let dry to tacky and lay in "clean dry" groove.
