SOURCE: My 1994 Mercedes Benz SL500 radio display turns on, but no sound?

I had same problem with my 1994 SL600. Also when this happens you will lose your interior door lights when you open the doors. My problem was solved by taking out the, A-white 40 amp 12V Relay and cleaning off the 6-prongs and reinstalling. It is located in the box underhood ahead of the main fuse box. Just need a phillips screwdriver. It is the fartherest relay in back left. I had to pull the one out in front of it to be able to remove the white one. You can hear it click when you push in dooropen switch. When working right you do not hear it. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I just replaced the accelerator

There is no exact science to this one but the adjustment you are referring to is for the pedal on one end and the throttle on the other. This needs to be tight and no slacks on the pedal on the other end, you should have it tightened in such a way that they is no delay when you press on the pedal and when depressed the cable does not cause tension that may cause the throttle to open up.

How do I replace the headlight assembly MN133516


The 2003 Outlander utilizes replaceable (9007) headlight bulbs. If you're looking to replace the bulb(s);
1. Raise the hood.
2. Remove the plastic cover at the rear of the headlamp assembly by rotating it counterclockwise, and pulling it off. This will allow access to the headlight bulb.
3. Twist the bulb socket counterclockwise in order to remove it from the headlamp assembly. Pull the old bulb out of the socket, and use a clean cloth to install the replacement bulb. Do not touch the glass of the new bulb.
4. Place the socket back into the assembly, and twist it clockwise. Reattach the plastic cover, and close the hood.
Are you needing DIY instructions for replacing the entire headlamp assembly? Left (driver) or Right (passenger)?

Need to get housing off of my 2003 envoy headlamps so I can replace the bulbs.


you replace the bulbs from the back of the headlight housing not separating the lens assembly.you may have to move things out of the way as there is very little room to get your hand in there to do the job.sometimes the manufacture has made it easy to remove the assembly to change the bulbs.it is usually 2 bolts(screws) that need to be removed(loosened) and the assembly tilted and pulled up or out away from the locking tab.you will have to look to see which way to do this.

How do I change front blinker bulb on 2003 chev impala


First,
  1. Turn the engine off and open the hood. Pry up the two fasteners from the radiator air baffle with a flat head screwdriver. Move the baffle to the side to access the top of the headlight case.
  2. Step 2 Pull up the two metal rods behind the headlight case. These secure the case to the car. You may need your pliers to pull them up.
  3. Step 3 Gently pull the headlight case out to access its rear. On the rear, you will find several black dust covers. Twist off the dust cover closest to the fender (the outward dust cover) to access the turn signal bulb.
  4. Step 4 Turn the bulb module counterclockwise to release it. Unplug the electrical connector from the bulb module. Connect the new bulb to the electrical connector (don't touch the glass with your hands; hold it by the plastic piece). Insert the bulb module in the turn signal housing, turn it clockwise and screw the dust cover back on.
  5. Step 5 Insert the headlight case in the mount. Push the pins back down to secure it. Position the radiator baffle in its place and insert the fasteners.
  6. Rear Turn Signal Bulbs
  7. Step 1 Open the trunk. Remove the net from the side mounted wing nut (on the side with the faulty turn signal). Twist the wing nuts (there are two per side) counterclockwise to remove them.
  8. Step 2 Peel the carpet layer back to access the rear signal lamp wing nuts. Twist these wing nuts (two per side) counterclockwise to remove them and release the rear signal.
  9. Step 3 Carefully pull the rear signal assembly away from the Impala. The rear turn signal is the inner bulb (closest to the trunk). Press the tab on the bulb module and turn it counterclockwise to release it from the rear signal assembly.
  10. Step 4 Pull the old bulb straight off the module (don't twist). Insert the new bulb in the module. Depress the tab on the connection and insert the module back in the assembly. Twist it clockwise.
  11. Step 5 Insert the rear signal assembly. Re-attach the assembly's wing nuts and push the carpet layer back in place. Tighten the other two wing nuts to secure the carpet layer and reconnect the cargo net

Replace low beam on 2000 LHS


The headlight housing must be removed to access the bulbs on the back of the housing. HOWEVER!!! you must take loose the bumper on the side you are replacing. To do this you also have to take loose the inner finder and turn you wheel sharply in the opposite direction of the bulb to be replaced. There is a 10mm nut you will have to remove inside as well as multiple plastic fasteners along the inner finder and across the front under the hood. Bulb just twist out to remove once the housing is removed. Also, resist the urge to use a very large hammer. Use caution when pulling the plastic bumper out where the 10mm nut was removed, the stud can easily scratch the paint while working the housing out of its socket.
